How many more assistant coaches do the Dockers need? They have an entourage of them, mostly ex AFL players delivered by tourist coach to each Peel Thunder game.
Good luck to Tendai, but sheeeesh.......
He wont be playing for Perth

All very disappointing but we must move on. Good luck to Tendai I wish him well.
Let's concentrate on getting Simon back and the recruiting we need to do to ensure that we can move forward with some confidence.

True Smokey and hopefully the first thing the club is doing is going through the list starting with the high point players and working down,weeding out those players that simply are not performing at league level or are just not up to it.

Work out our needs eg. ruckmen,go out and get them whether thats from other wafl clubs,amatuers,country footy whatever go out and get them.

He is NOT an assistant coach.He is taking charge of the youth academy and acting as the clubs runner.Don't read something into what is not there.

Plenty of examples of guys coming back from injury plagued AFL careers and having an impact at WAFL. Only need to look at Brad Smith who did 2 knees while on the Weags list, came back to Subi and was a dominant player. The reduced load allows them to get on the paddock, hope that's the case for Tunbridge.

I wouldn't compare Tunbridge with Smith, different leagues. Mzungu was the player we needed.

Yeh that's a blow Mzungu going back to Fremantle in a development role, though doesn't sound like a match day role I wonder if playing for us is still a possibility? We should be in discussions with him about the possibility.
