... and in that 80 minutes the coach is looking at a lot more things than most fans are. He is also sober while viewing games, which helps immensely.


NOOOOO WAY !!!!
We know best , being a bit drunk lets our true thoughts shine through
Post game interview with a pissed Fitz would have seen Mozza dropped months earlier :)

I agree with most of what you say mate, but that last sentence is blatantly ludicrous

The coach mate. The coach.

4 games tomorrow starting around lunchtime. Pace yourselves.
Even then... you wouldn't catch Tommy sober. I suspect Ricky has a few before games. And whatever keeps Bennett going can't be purely medicinal!

Gotta give Fitz some credit for comments like this. The culture at the club atm has to be the best I've ever seen it.

I had this sort of realisation moment of having to look at the boys and tell them - if I was to leave - that I was leaving," a grateful Hamlin-Uele said in a media statement.

"I just broke down and cried and I knew just then that I'm meant to be a Cronulla Shark for as long as I can and I'm meant to be in the Shire.

"This club means everything to me, the boys mean everything to me. I love them like a second family and I'm just so grateful and thankful that I can be here for another two years with them.

Obviously created an environment people not only wanna be a part of but will make some sacrifices to stay a part of. Other players will see that too come recruitment.

Bomber probably deserves a bit of rep for identifying, developing and asembling the bulk of this team too.
Shame we sold him a dummy and didn’t leave him looking after our “futures” teams at the time.

i would imagine Fitz (HC) with Bomber (assistant and development coach) would be a great combo for now and into the future

Completely. They are probably only as tight as they are due to being together for so long.
Well that - and several of those guys not really being much in demand when the Sharks picked them up (Flanno too - since he is responsible for bringing Toby and BHU originally).

Amazing to think that outside of Cam, Dale and Teig (and possibly Jack) the Sharks have built a quality forward pack from guys who other teams didn't want.

His father Craig might think he doesn’t always listen to his advice.
But Aaymon Fitzgibbon promises he does.
The Illawarra Steelers SG Ball halfback knows better than to shrug off the teachings of a modern league legend and current NRL coach.
The young gun respects the incredible reputation his father has built within the game with a goal of creating his own name in the years to come.
“There’s a legacy to keep going and I’m glad I get to contribute to it. I’d like to make it my own,” he said.
