Giants are defo in some trouble off court and nearly half way through October, dragging their feet with advertising for head coach.

Havent really had much success with attracting/retaining Oz players let alone coaches - assumptions would be that would have appointed coaches locally and concentrated efforts on recruitment.

Hope im wrong but sad how such a proud club has gone through such a tough few years with no signs of improvement, again based on outsider looking in.

Giants have their HC position advertised on their website and FB page.

Earnest Ross to Joondalup. Seems Ben Ettridge has pulled out his immigration map like he complained about at the start of the year. Spent all year having a sook about it.

Have a read of how smug and ridiculous this article is and then see what he's just done to the Buccs. Poaching players and paying big money to get them down to Joondalup. But yeah all his players are home grown.

Seems to be a bit of a false hashtag now doesn't it?

Offseason..... Been to 3 weddings, living beach side, drinking beers, retired. Pissing my self laughing at Ben Dover and his preaching.
He probably should have not put that photo up before he choked again.
#builtnotbought

Ben Dover firstly went at our organisation publicly, then goes at me personally, game on.. I've got all the time in the world to play this one out.

With Kyle Armour moving to Lakeside wouldn't surprise me if Jake Burston was to follow.

Grida been targeted heavily in the SEABL / whatever the new league will be
would be suprised to see him return to Perth unless a club can fork out the $$$. He would deserve every cent of it too

i cant help but laugh at the built not bought hashtag

wunders enjoy your retirement mate, well deserved after a great sbl career

I am really getting worried about the South West Slammers ability to field a team next season. Rumour had Teny Puot returning but don't think that will happening and they look like losing Durnin, Voelkel and Thompson at the very least. Any other rumours of signings or re-signings for that club???

Slammers need a coach!

they threw everything at getting Utley but missed out.

players find it hard to commit to playing for a club not knowing who the coach will be

they are essentially back to the pre-Ty Harrelson era where they won 1 game in approx 3 seasons

With super coach Canneloni down in Bunbury, not hard to see why players are vacating.

HAHA this is gold!

Lets be honest Ettridge (Ben Dover) has no integrity at all.

He has not developed one player at all.

Reece Maxwell who is a hell of a kid, deserves a championship but wont get it under ego, or ben-dover, Maxy deserves better.

The GF's he has lost when odds on favourite is hilarious.
Choke once, choke twice, but not a third.

Classic Ben Dover.

Highly amusing seeing a perennial choker acuse another of being a perennial choker.

It takes a lot to get to the big dance. And I bet you wish you had the chance to win a few (or even 1) just like Ben dover has.

lol @ Sunset Sam.

3 of those players you names are imports who shop themselves around hahahah of course you'd take a proven player over some empty promise (alla Zollo, Guerin, Palkert)

Let me have a go.

Kalamunda (Davis, Timms)
Cockburn (Steph Jones, Priestley, Gandini, Chan)
East Perth (Davis, Easley, Tawhiti, Anthony)
Stirling (Kisha Lee)
Hawks (Holmen, Thomas, Cassir)

Giants have made some positive strides in the last few years fielding men's and women’s division one sides, but they are still struggling big tome on the court. They will be onto their sixth coach in the last seven years and have only been able to get a handful of Perth players up in that time. Very sad times. A good Kalgoorlie team makes for a better league

Giants have been working hard behind the scenes over the past month or so and will be making some significant announcements over the next few weeks.

They will be BIG improvers in 2019.

Why is Palkert mentioned there? He didn't rip the league up but he was very solid. 20/10 and led the league in blocks at 2.5 a game.... Consistent outside shooter at 6"10.
