Wortho to coach in QABL

Wortho to coach the Cairns Dolphins in the NBL off-season. Obviously he's looking at moving into coaching once he's done playing.

"For me it's a chance to kick off my coaching career, as it’s something I’ve always been interested in," Worthington told The Cairns Post.

“I’m a player/coach out on the court with the Taipans anyway so the next progression was to actually coach a team.

I see him being a Gleesonesque coach with his gruff demeanour.

Didn't they used to be called the Marlins?

No. Marlins are the men's side. Dolphins are the females.

Oh okay fair enough didn't realise Wortho was going to be coaching a women's team.

Makes sense if you know him and his family well, particularly his parents. Greg & Trina aka Mum & Dad have coached at WABL (Juniors) & SBL Level over here for well over ten years, with both also being heavily involved with the State Country Program in the late 90s / Early 2000s.

If he is anything like them, he will definitely be good at the gig. Best of luck to him!

Blokes who think they are tough and yell:scream at women as a power trip usually coach women's ball. Most of the men who coach women wouldn't get away with speak to blokes the same way.

Is that why Joyce went over to the women's side?
