Quoting Good Grief:
Watched this match; Marjak has no idea! If he had his best team on in the first half, they should have done so much better!!! If the photo is of him yelling at his players; mmmm!!! Not sure someone in control does this!

It would be grand to see this young man they call Gab win everything with the zebras this year. It will stick it right up all the haters.

The only good thing Kingborough have done in the past 10 years is bring this young coach to our shores.

At least he brings a bit of colour to the weekend unlike the same old recycled coaches changing clubs. Jabba being the exception, a one club man.

Ok he shows passion he loses control a bit, but there are plenty of very good coaches around the globe that do similar.

You can certainly understand taking lots of players off, he had already shown that he had Clarence's measure in the first half, there is a bigger fish to fry on Saturday night. Broadbent!


Wowzer getting excited about beating Broadys team in a summer cup game is going to be his highlight to his season. Goodluck. I hope it doesn't cost him 9 points in a season. Ha Ha


Don't flatter yourself, Broadbent isn't that important, it's just the next game and it happens to be "Broadys team"

Surely zebras won’t accept this attitude towards the refs from the coach!
Disgrace

It's all in the interpretation of the photo. The ref told the coach that it was time to play, so he turned to his dressing room and told the players to get out on the park.


While half your statement is correct, markajkhkj got aggressive and approached Alistair and pointed in his face in an aggressive way he should have been sent to the stands before kick off I’d like to see the match report.

Like a good racehorse, no need to peak until it's race day.


Still not sold on the Zebras. They looked shaken in the second half after a few changes. Not sure what changes were made?


Huigy, Muller, Pace, Hey, Van Doorne were all taken off in the second half


What was the score at HT?
