No, he hasn't played since 2002 and I'm guessing his game will be well below the standards required to succeed. The only aspect of his game that we could really benefit from is his goalkicking but I'm not even sure if he can do that as well any more.

I see ropati as a anasta without the kicking game. Have faith with rovelli cause if we demote him now it could be destabilising.

Anyone remember Matthew Ridge a few years ago was offered a similar role at the Warriors?

I really don't think it can work, firstly I doubt he is fit enough it will undermine Steve Price aswell.
Thats only two reasons..... if we were winning and winning well maybe if we had injuries he could come off the bench.

I do not think its really that stupid. Why do you think coaches come down to the sideline sometimes?

They want to get a feel for whats happening on the field. Sometimes having someone closer to the action you start seeing things that need changing and sometimes you become a better judge of your players knowing what they can and cannot do. For example, if you were a coach, played in the centres, outside Ropati and never got the ball, what would you do the following week?

Yeah i think hes doing well. Gave him a b but it woulda been a b+ if it was there lol. But anyway yeah he seems to be keeping relaxed and doing a good job to boot. Hopefully he can stay warriors coach for quite a while!!!

A-/B+.

Cleary has had to deal with a -4 disadvantage before coaching a single first grade game. He has introduced numerous youngsters to the highest level, and hasn't been too proud to make changes when he has found out to be wrong.

His introduction of rookies has been excellent, and also in making tough decisions on others and also the fact is he doesn't let too much phase him he jsut takes it in and continues on. It's been good by my reckoning; I like him as a coach I reckon.

There's still a fair way to go in the season, but even without the -4 start the Warriors would not be in the top 8, in fact 11th.
On the up side I think Cleary is learning as he goes. As people have mentioned, it's good to see the new boys get a decent run. I feel he is using this year as a testing ground for the 2007 season - trying to get key positions sorted and generally solidify the starting line up for the years ahead.

I'd give him a B-/C so far. If the team keeps performing like it has the last few weeks his rating will go up by year's end... if not, it's detention!

Calm, cool no frustrastion, hes a unusal coach but probably perfect for the warriors. He keeps there heads out the sky without breaking sweat. It looks like the team is slowy being molded to have confidence in each other so every can focus on their own job instead of dragging others. Hes not afraid to drop high profile players or admit hes wrong. The team is moving forward lets see how far they can go. Taking into account wade mcinnion for next year i have confidence that cleary can give us fans some just rewards for our long term suffering.

I graded him a fair C. He has been OK, but under my expectations of a good/great coach. He has made some dubious selections, but also some good ones and some of his tactics have been good as well. But we still seem to struggle with the inconsistency that had plagued us for the past two years. 6 wins from 14 games doesn't really warrant an A or B in my opinion.

Also lets not forget he convinced ravs over here. Another coach might not have known about him. You owe cleary a box of chocolates skinny!!
