    What on earth are Gladstone men doing? Already having signed both restricted players for 2018 and neither are as good as Ray Willis, they've then added two relative unknowns to what was the leagues most insipid offense in 2017. They need some top shelf talent to compete in the QBL but unless they nab an unrestricted NBL guy they don't have the capacity to add any.

    Taylor Young looked like a nice role playing import for Rocky in his short stint and could have completed ray Willis nicely on the wing. Shane Walker played behind Jamell Anderson at Leicester in the UK and doesn't look to have the bulk or skill set to be an elite player in the QBL at the 4. Again another nice role player as an import, not a star. Jamell was ok for Townsville but not a top level import in the QBL by any means. Not someone who many of any teams would be scrambling to sign. Yet Gladstone have signed a guy who played behind him 2 years ago??

    I hope they plan on keeping Remy Lawyer as their PG as well as Musters. They have a couple of young local juniors who are a couple of years away from being ready to contribute at the QBL level. Coach Walmsley is really going to have his work cut out for him to make this roster work unless he's got a gun signing in the lurch. The biggest shock is how early all these moves have happened when the caliber of players we are signing would still be available after you explore top shelf NBL or import talent who are currently playing.

    Does anyone have any other QBL news or signings?! All been very quite since the end of the season.

    What about the locals Walmsley you idiot. This is what happens when you bring in a fly in fly out coach.

      Gladstone locals? You wouldn't want more than 2 of those if you're planning to compete.

        This is what happens when the coaches ego has to be bigger than any player he is going to coach! Recruit low maintenance, low expectation players. But hey, he's putting together the team he wants so now it's on him to get success with that. But expect it to be put back on the players when they don't have success.

            I'm sure lots of teams have signed players already but no one would be silly enough to announce them now

              Chris Riches names as Ipswich Force Head Coach for next 3 years.......will be interesting to see unfold.

              Rumour out of the Gold Coast is that the HC of the Rollers is between Rucker and Conlon unless a dark horse emerges.

              So therefore the only Men's teams not accounted for are Toowoomba and Logan.

                How would Rucker find the time, didn't he step down from Logan because he wanted to focus on his awesome coaching academy? Lol.

                    Womens Coaching Merry Go Round

                    A lot of vacant positions not filled yet for the womens teams
                    - Brisbane
                    - Sunshine Coast
                    - Maroochy
                    - Gold Coast
                    - Toowoomba

                    So, only teams that have coaches are - Logan, Ipswich, South West, Rocky, Gladstone, Townsville?

                    I am sure I have missed some however the point is that there are plenty of teams without coaches!
