      on the defensive side of things Fitzy teaches them how to hit and the tackling technique but Robbo sets the patterns we use in defence.

      I cannot think of a better coach who has overturned so many spine players alone and had such short term success.

      He also cops the heat when we lose so IMO he deserves the accolades.


      Time to stir the hornet's nest. It is no coincidence that three coaches coming out of the Rooster's system have gone on to win premierships for different clubs. They are ultimately disciples of a former coach, whose brilliant conditioning coach son would also not be here if not for this godly figure.

          LOL bring back Freddo69er.

          That period was very funny. On the field it was ugly, but Freds mantra was voodoo hate shit, I always imagined him with a Smiffy doll and a huge bucket of pins.

          Poor old Smiffy, brilliant footy mind and obviously a very astute coach especially of kids, but how bloody unlucky to meet Waynkerr 3 times and JoEy in GFs.

          Has there ever been a more unlucky bloke in RL???

          You know it makes sense.

            Could never get the Smith hate - many of the teams he took over, especially in his later coaching years, were ones that needed a cleanout, which is a pretty thankless task as a coach. Newcastle hired him to be the face that punted the blokes they no longer wanted like Buderis, simply because the Board didn't have the balls to do it themselves. And then at the Chooks he had to clean up the mess Fittler had left behind and start a cultural revolution at the club that Robbo continued.

            Fact is if the Chooks didn't hire Smith, then we wouldn't have ended up with Robbo, as it was Smith who bought him with him when he came to the Chooks, much to the displeasure of Newcastle. At that stage, wherever Smith went, Robbo followed.
            Roll on Season 2017 ...

              No arguments here mate. Brian Smith will always be one of my very favourite people in the game.

              Interestingly the ex refs boss who has just been sacked virtually stole a much deserved premiership from him in 2010.

                      I think stability has been a key factor in Robinson's success. I'll admit this season I thought he made some strange decisions like leaving SOS on the bench without any game time (for 3 weeks) for one and a couple of games where we came up against a strong pack where I thought our pack was light on.

                      But with the Roosters there hasn't been an upheaval in the Coaching ranks. Fitzy's been around forever and a day (and that's a good thing), Jason Taylor also, and despite his critics (me included) he's been around for a while but has achieved success and I think Adam O'Brien will only be beneficial .

                      The world really is the oyster for Robinson's taking. Who knows what talent may come through at other clubs and who they may recruit but looking at the Roosters list, if they continue to improve, have the hunger, the majority want to be a Rooster for as long as they can and Robinson continues to bring out the best of them - there is no reason why the Roosters can't enjoy a sustained period of success.

                              Agreed. I reckon Smith did the best with what he had and got within 40 minutes of winning a premiership. IMO his input was highly under-rated...

                              Not saying this makes him a super coach. But like, he got rid of a lotta shyte players, blooded some decent youngsters and dealt with way too much disciplinary rubbish (kids were just running amok before him).

                              Robbo is the better coach. However, he inherited a good roster and good systems, which is significant. What he did with it is something next level but when Smith left, we had our 2013 team locked in. I don't reckon he woulda won a premiership with it, but he made some tough calls, got rid of the absolute garbage we had and left the place in much better shape than when he joined us.
