WT Background staff

Ive been noting for some time that we seem to have a less than stellar record when it comes to recruitment and retention, junior development, coaching support staff ie reserve and junior grades and medical staff- who can forget the Dr Krah (?) for WT who whenever he seemed to treat a player, they came out worse for wear. For all those who were pleased to see McDonnell go, he has come back again. Kelly Egan did not seem t do a good job as football manager- I’d hold him responsible for the salary cap mess created by Cleary- he was the check on Cleary not Pascoe.

Is there a list somewhere of our successive background support staff and managers going back to about 2010? I’'m trying to match the disconnect WT seem to have been suffering from. I’m estimating it began the last couple of years when Sheens was getting very stale at WT and continued on throughout the coaching merrygoround we had.

@2005magic I think it was pretty clear post Cleary that we went backwards.
Instead of seeing talent step up we went external a lot.

Sheens and co had the best juniors going around then sheens decided to sign Blaire and let go of a few good local talent we started losing sheens got sacked then Jason Taylor got rid of all our juniors

Not aware of any list of ex-staff, but…

New coaches and even new CEOs tend to bring in some of their own staff, which may partly explain turnover.

Agree. We went away from what we are good at.
