Hi Walter
I see young Sammy L played for South, how did he go?
This kid is a gun and I know Kenny has been trying to get from Eagles for a while now.
Sam is worth the admission fee

I can't believe that Olympia have never approached young Sammy L.
Would be a great replacement for Jack Turner and you could nearly say the title in the bag. There's not a player in Tassie that's as quick and dynamic playing in the 10 role.

Leszczynski to Olympia, lol will never happen!!

I think Zebras have the squad to win the league this season, they have some quality players and will be ready by the start of the season.

I think gab needs time.zebs best players last year were imports.with no structure at club for years they lost so much youth over the years. It's gonna be tough for any coach to go there

Maybe tbe board at Zebras need to move on if this coach doesnt improve as they hired him after his performance at Kingsbourgh.

Looks like Majak is following a pattern. At Kingborough, he ignored the contribution of long term players at his, and the clubs, peril. It is about balance. If I was a Zebs supporter, I would be worried. Maybe he needs to be an assistant coach somewhere???

#5 due for some decent coaching, will improve his game

I would say he already has as that's the reason why he's so good.
it's not about the coaching but the level Sam plays at, should be on the mainland.
Sam played in a intra club game at south a few weeks ago and was skinning everyone.
