Can’t argue with that team. I love it.
A good read about what goes on during training.
Credit to Ryan for completing the session, although he needed to have a ‘rest’ with the rehab guys.
Ryan was also just on fox talking about it. He said if you were an outsider looking in and didn’t know who anyone was you would say Aiden Guerra was the captain along with Buhrer. Really good to see someone like Guerra, who in years gone by would have been here for a retirement package, but this guy is leading the way in preseason. I got that feeling when Ryan mentioned in the article that Guerra gave the players a spray who had their hands on their hips.
Ah... Sorta refreshing to see a team made up of players who aren't just raw youngsters and retirement package grandpas.
That Guerra comment was the best thing I saw in that article. You cannot be born with that, it only comes from experience. Hopefully the young guys are soaking it up
Hodkinson rejected an offer from Cronulla but another may be tabled.
Manly are holding out on him while they wait re their salars cap.
Apparently, we paid Hodko half of his 850g from this year last year and he earned 100 G so far this year .
odd paying him half up front, I would of thought there was a good chance we were trying to offload him even before Pearce signed.
KNIGHTS chief executive Phil Gardner expects to soon appoint a four-man advisory committee who will ultimately determine how long Nathan Brown remains as Newcastle’s coach.
Four man committee, surely results will determine things with an allowance for this coming season to organise and implement.
From memory the idea to pay him up front was brought up mid way through last year with the idea of having more money to spend this season.
If we remain the $1 million under the cap that we currently are for this season, I’m expecting Brown and Moloney to use similar tactics in order to have a stronger 2019 side.
New Knights recruit Herman Ese'ese ready to fire after an eye-catching pre-season
Picked this up off the MS twitter feed....
Our leadership group for 2018 is:
It would seem that Brown has continued to build on the Sydney Swans model and selected a leadership group, from which a captain would be appointed but that might also be rotated, etc. - I think the way it has established the player culture in the Swans has been a real positive, so I hope that translates into the Knights culture going forward.
The guy we have employed to work on our leadership also worked with Hawthorne and the Aus netball team. He knows his shit. Also I believe our leadership group was voted in by the team.
Interesting insight in Guerra's recruitment .
HIS signing was met with mixed reactions but Aidan Guerra will bring Newcastle far more than big game experience.
Look past the run metres and tackles per game and delve a little deeper.
That’s what Nathan Brown and the Newcastle staff did when they landed the 30-year-old on a three-year-deal.
The coaching staff dig much deeper than a player’s base stats and aside from the clear leadership, here you’ll find the secret behind Guerra’s recruitment.
