Jacob holmen will be a massive loss if this is the case. pillard was a front runner an soft as butter . he will be easily replaced. its the support staff and coaching that will be the biggest challenge for the giants.
the bunbury rumour is strong for their coaching position. the giants are always letting us know what is happening they have been the best for many years with sharing their information. LUKOSIS ?

- We are currently negotiating with Jacob Holmen in regards to a return in 2018. As the reigning SBL MVP, we would be foolish to not try and get him back. Other clubs have approached him, and why wouldn't they, so this is of no surprise. He is getting married soon so his priority is on that at the minute.

- We have been advised by JB Pillard's manager that he has a significant knee problem, and to not consider him for 2018, so we are looking for a replacement.

- We are currently talking to prospective coaches, so will hopefully have that put to bed soon.

- We're on the verge of signing an Aussie big from the Eastern States. A media release will be issued upon confirmation.

Chan is not moving from Cockburn, why would he? Nener wants a team of young kids and the club wants zero imports, means Chan will do whatever he wants.

Della would have returned if he was playing more than 10 minutes, no doubt. Rumour has it Thomas is recovering well from Ankle Surgery but if he plays on at Cockburn, not sure. Some young boys coming through the program there would have valued those two sticking around. Will it happen?not likely.

Cougars will still have Field, Cummings, Chan.

If Cougars don't have a decent import they run the risk of being wooden spooners.
Heard DT wants to go to Hawks.
Nener does not value Della as a player so no point in the 35 year old playing again, wouldn't surprise me if he followed DT to play under Parsons.
Holmes is a decent player who continues to improve. But foul prone.
Field no where near the player he used to be since his arm injury.Cummings good Not much else there.Chan a bit soft. It's ok to want a young team but only have players suitable as 8,9 and 10th players.
Don't believe as a coach that Nener can attract players
Without an import and another big no finals for Cougars

Field needs to not be the third or sometimes fourth option on the Cougars team. He wasn't at his best last season but a lot of that had to do with Neners game plan. He just didn't get Field enough looks. He chose to feature the import and Cummings.

Two thirds of the above comments from Tim himself no doubt. Been with the club as a player and coach, so they obviously know him well enough to know he isn't good enough for the job. Move on, because frankly no one else cares.

Word is Rendulic didn't have the support of key players who made it clear to those higher up at the club, they would not stay should he be appointed. Another case of the arrogance of some who have grown up with Perth, then the harsh reality check when they realise they're not as good as their ego led them to believe. Expect that same reality bite half their men's team in that same category, once the cheque book dries up and S Redhage can't win them championships any more

There's a whole lot of crap being bandied about regarding Tim.

I'll bet Yo Mama is one of the self-entitled players that think they dictate who Coaches or if they even bother to turn up to practice etc. Maybe it's the same player that tried to undermine the last Coach in the middle of the Season and have him replaced?

Perth are just doing what they have done the last 5 years or so, over-look people from within and chase shiny new Coaches from outside. Will they lose another long-standing loyal person in the pursuit of the easy fix?

Does Nix have the tools to Coach Womens? Theres no track record there. At least Tim has Coached the last 2 Seasons, albeit D-League.

It'll be interesting to see who stays and who goes off chasing a pay cheque again.

All is not lost , Tim can assist Nix this season and take over next season as the only reason Nix is coaching woman is because there are no Mens jobs going in the city and he didnt want to commute.
Can bet your life when a mens job comes up next season he will be gone.
He has to coach to stay involved and this was the only job going, If you sit out of coaching for a season its hard to be accepted for other jobs.

Turner has already signed with the SEABL next year, hoping to make NBL as a naturalised player. They are looking at another dominant big that has played in this league 2 years ago.

Cody out with hip surgery, will hurt them with shot blocking and just a body in the paint.

Senators will be hoping Cody Ellis can keep up his current NBL stats of 6mins per game. Will mean he can play as an Aussie instead of a restricted spot.

On a downside, they will likely lose Corban Wroe who will probably return home to the East (if he hasn't already) after his Wildcats experiment didn't really work out.

Just goes to show you how the SBL is on the decline. Cody Ellis can't get a game in the NBL but averages big numbers in the SBL.
SBL only had Dexter Kernich Drew and Cody Ellis from the NBL, the QBL has more NBL players. Only a few years ago you had players like Tom Jervis, Luke Nevil, Peter Crawfords in the SBL, but now you can't even get half decent imports.
SEABL, QBL and Big V arguably better than the SBL now. Sad days.

Avg of 16 in the league last season was the equivalent of about 20 in the previous season. Not bad on a team that ran an offense which involved more than 1 guy who took all the shots

the SBL is very average. No player gets any NBL interest. Its a bush league and is treated as such. SEABL is more competitive and professionally run.

How piss weak are these people/children who continually run down the SBL. SBL draws from 2 million - SEABL draws from 20 million and probably has sponsorship x 10.
On a per capita basis, WA produce a good number of NBL quality basketball players and punch above their weight.
But you don't have to like our "bush league" and nobody is interested in hearing you bad mouth it.
Perhaps you could put up some of your stats for the years you ripped the SBL apart.

Sbl might not have the same quality players as seabl but it's definitely has more passion within its players and teams approach. It has also come a long way and will keep improving with or without your support.

QBL is 100 times better than the SBL ! you are just being silly if you think otherwise.
QBL had Torrey Craig, Jeremy Kendle, Tom Jervis, Mitch Young, Damon Heuir, Daniel Kickert, Shaun Bruce, Lucas Walker, Alex Loughton, William McDowell-White, Lance Hurdle, Brendan Teys, Stevie Weigh, Adam Gibson - and so many more!!!

SBL had Loughton for 4 games, Cody Ellis, Dexter Kernich and a retired Shawn Redhage who at 36 absolutely dominated the Bush League.

Who cares how good the other leagues are. What do you think we should do, fly to Victoria or Queensland every weekend to watch a game.
We watch because it is here and we like it. If we didn't like it we wouldn't watch it.
You would be the same person/people who called the NBL a bush league until you got that stuck right back up your arse.
And I'm sorry none of our clubs thought you were good enough to make a WABL team.

top sbl players
Jackson Hussey - played 2 nbl games, 6 minutes and 3 turnovers.
Chudier Pal - averaged 7 points and 7 rebounds in seabl compared to 14 and 14 in sbl

Top qbl players
Actual nbl players

Yes while you like to watch it and it's available to you, don’t kid yourself by saying it’s better than the qbl or Seabl. It’s great you make do with what you have, but don’t get ahead of yourself. Your league is equal to waratah and the SA league, and I say that from experience

With the SA state league now having two imports I'd say that league is stronger too. Only 10 clubs so it's not watered down.

I think its pretty clear and accepted that SEABL is the top league in AUS outside of the NBL. The examples you are using to discredit the SBL are pretty pathetic.

If you are saying Hussey is a top player in the SBL I would say OK, maybe a top 20 player. Chudier Pal perhaps a top 30 player and averaged 14 and 14 when SBL was still 48 mins.

SBL and QBL roughly on par, depending really on the talent of the imports year to year.

Ray Turner in 11 games in the QBL in 2016 averaged 22.5 pts and 12.3 rebounds. This year in the SBL, 25 pts and 12.3 rebounds.

Tom Jervis QBL this season 23ppg and 12.5 rpg... No longer have access to past season stats but I am confident in saying that on a 40min game basis Jervis' averages were lower than that in the SBL. The East Perth website has stats for the 2014 season in which he averahed 16.5 ppg and 11 rpg (after adjusting for the 48 min game length).

Alex Loughton 18ppg and 8rbg in the QBL this season... in his 4 games in the SBL he averaged 17ppg and 10rpg (granted he was in a reduced role but also played some poor teams during that stretch).

Redhage averaged 25 a game this year in the SBL and I'd say he'd pretty much replicate that in the QBL.

Finally of the NBL players who played QBL last season this is how many games they each played:
Craig - 10
Jervis - 12
Young - 12
Kickert - 5
Bruce - 21
Walker - 20
Loughton - 8
Teys - 1
Weigh - 9
Gibson - 9
Weeks - 15

That is less than half the season for most.

However you spin the two leagues (QBL and SBL) are not that far apart.. despite what some posters here may believe.

Would love to know who the chumps are talking trash. They stopped going to watch. But I would love to know when and who they played for? Would be rather interesting to see them actually post their names and see how good they were.

The sbls top teams are just on par with other teams around Australia. It's the bottom half of the league that isn’t as good as some of the other leagues. Would never find a kalamunda style team in The seabl but sorry to say there are crap teams in ever league.

By all means post your name and would love to see them on a court.

The sbl will always struggle to get major talent to play here simply due to accessibility. Players use the off season leagues to get extra coin so there's no point in moving so far away just to get a bit more $$

it comes down to the quality of imports that are bought out for the season and also how many NBL players decide to suit up for the off-season.
just about all of the 36ers local talent play in SA . also a lot of NBL talent in the QBL. SBL has miminal NBL talent suiting up. redhage,ellis bragg.
I think it depends on the year , its a pointless argument anyway.
we don't we have the grand finalists from each state league playoff - top two teams from each state.

There are six 2nd-tier leagues in Australia. At the moment I would rank them as:

1. SEABL
2. QBL
3. SBL
4. BigV & SA Premier League
6. Waratah

1. SEABL
Obviously the best league in Australia under the NBL. Has been for a long time and will continue to do so. That said, the best teams in the SEABL are a notch above the QBL/SBL, but there are also a number of SEABL teams who would be middle-of-the-road in the QBL and SBL.

2. QBL
If you take the NBL-Aussies out of the equation then both the QBL and SBL are on par with each other. And that has been the case for a while now. The reason that the QBL is half a notch above the SBL is simply because of the NBL Aussies that play in the QBL. There's 3 times as many of them!!

Over the last couple of years the QBL has seen a record number of NBL Australians playing in it. This is mainly due to location - the QBL will draw these players from the Taipans, Bullets, Crocs (when they were in the NBL), Kings, Hawks etc etc. On the other hand the SBL will generally only see Wildcats Aussies playing in it.

3. SBL
See above.

4. BigV & SA Premier League
Up until a year ago the BigV had it over the Premier League (PL). However with the PL going from one import to two last year, both leagues have evened up. The BigV has better Aussie players, but this is countered by half the BigV teams only having one import.

6. Waratah
Enough said.

I assume those NBL players who play QBL and average over 10 mins a game in the NBL are still considered "restricted players", as is the case in the SBL? In that case each team is still limited to 2 restricted players. Many of the imports who play SBL or QBL if they were locals, would definitely be good enough play NBL. For example, a Dwayne Benjamin or Jacob Holman are as good a players as Mitch Young or Steven Weigh. I don't think a Brendan Teys would be averaging 25ppg in the SBL like Tre Nichols.

The difference is really then who has the better caliber "third tier" local, but unrestricted players.

The QBL's restricted player situation is a bit more complex than the SBL's. In addition to a restricted player policy, the QBL also has a 'points system' in place, similar to what the NBL had a couple of years ago. This can have a significant effect on putting together a roster as teams only have a certain amount of points to use.

So when trying to compare the QBL with the SBL in this case, we are really comparing apples with oranges (or pineapples).

^ well that further strengthens the argument that the 2 leagues are roughly similar. Regardless of the extra NBL players, the QBL teams can only have 2 restricted players (same as SBL). They are further limited by points.

I give the QBL a slight edge due to the fact Townsville Cairns use it as a develpment league and the Rockhamptons and Mackays have huge budgets. Your Mooroochadores and Central Coast and Brisbane teams are right on par with most SBL teams.
