      Dawie, not a bad suggestion. I worry about AC and his inability to rotate players. Jake does have a lot of baggage though...

      @Jako why do you need a new coach when you have motor-mouth Dumtree?

    Typical of our vision and ability to keep good coaches like Jake, Nick and Markgraaf. Someone with brains will never get stale.
