NBL1 West - 2021/22 Offseason Thread
Men's and Women's - don't be silly about this people!
Congrats to the Tigers Women and Hawks Men first and foremost. Ironic that to be an NBL1 West Championship coach this year, you had to be PARticularly good (PARker & PARsons, somebody see the humor in this please!?)
(W) Allen out at Perth: Despite a deep Finals run in only his second season in charge, Craig Allen could be shown the door by the Redbacks due to player revolt. Harsh does not begin to describe this if true! Also reports of the return of Parker-Williams from the Wolves and she could be bringing young gun Laneisha Paddon with her.
(W) The mass exodus at the Wolfpack is all but certain to occur. Steindl, Parker-Williams, Paddon, Denehey, Ucich & Martin all expected to take offers elsewhere with Nix to be announced as new Men's Coach after the Summerville failure
(W) Goulding and Mader high on opposition clubs recruiting lists with big money being speculated to get the star pair away from Mirrabooka in 2022. COTY Srdarev in all kinds of pain if his star duo do sign on elsewhere next year
(W) Goldfields looking to sniper away some prized recruits for their inaugural season in Women's NBL1 West next year, aiming for no less than four quality recruits to assist the squad who narrowly went down to Lakeside in the Women's WABL Championship Grand Final this year
(M) Jerami Grace leaving the Magic, with the new destination already doing the rounds at the Men's Grand Final last night. Lips sealed on that one but I can reveal it is a club SOR
(M) Salinas & Iliadis both to formally announce their retirements in the off-season. Huge careers from two absolute guns and whilst their best seasons may be behind them, their leadership and knowledge will be sorely missed at the Wolfpack under soon to be announced new Head Coach Nix. Likewise, even further North - Ralph & Wundenberg expected to also announce their retirements sometime over the summer months. For two local products up there, particularly Wundenberg who didn't start playing until he was in his mid teens (He came from a polo background) they have been absolute stalwarts up at the Buccs who will no doubt go down as club legends in the Midwest.
(M) Many will have noticed the significant Wildcat flavour supporting Rockingham last night. Begs the question with Kevin White in attendance, whether he suits up with former Cats teammates Hire & Jervis for NBL1 West 2022 after playing the the Cats this upcoming NBL season.
