mate ..i am calm seriously lol but this guy has huge footy experience and we could use his help i am sure unless the signing was indeed bullshit or a placebo :laughing:
Meant what i said though he needs to be on deck with the troops and idgaf about Covid he should be here in blocks of time at least IMO.And is he looking for suitable players for us?? should at least be doing that..
Well let’s see, NZ Government are going to lay out their plans for a travel bubble with Australia on April 6th. If they open a bubble, Hansen needs to be on the first flight over here.

100%. It’s clear whatever instructions Barrett and the rest of our coaching staff are giving isn’t sinking in. Hopefully Hansen can have a positive effect on the playing group

He can't find a good lamb pie around Belmont. The club has tried to get him onto lamb kebabs with no success.

What’s happened to this guy? Have not heard a beep out of him.. no interviews, no sign of him at training nothing zilch... was this just a publicity stunt to generate some interest at the club??

I want to see what magic he can produce because we need all the help we can get at the moment!
Are we meant to see or hear him? Thought his role was to work behind the scenes with the coach and playing group .

Warburton speaks highly of Trent Barrett. He knows, and says as much, that the players show up every day with a positive attitude because Barrett is the one with the whistle, who has a vision they all buy in to.

“The first thing he does when he introduces a new player is he sits down and shows some key videos about what it means to be a Bulldog,” Warburton explains.

“He speaks about our legacy and creating our path as a Bulldog. He grew up a Bulldogs fan. We need to carve and forge our own way forward as a unit. He’s setting that vision and it’s almost like he’s been at the club for a decade.

“You’d think a rookie coach would skim over that but he has really harnessed nearly 90 years of history.”

For those asking, the above is how Steve Hansen operates, he builds a culture over time, it's not a light switch that is just turned on. That's his primary skill, building a culture that leaves no room for anyone who doesn't buy into it. This is all about TEAM FIRST, with daylight before anything / everything else. Anyone who has read the book The Jersey by Peter Bills will recognise the Hansenisms above.

Honestly when I first saw the Steve Hansen stuff hit the papers, I always read it as him being a mentor to Baz in this coaching gig rather than him having any sort of day to day influence at the club.
