Joey- free Roost­ers

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - GRAND FINAL BUZZ -

THE Roost­ers have made it to the grand fi­nal with­out rugby league Im­mor­tal An­drew Johns who mys­te­ri­ously dis­ap­peared from their coach­ing staff af­ter a mid-sea­son blow-up. Joey up­set some play­ers over his com­ments on Chan­nel 9’s cov­er­age of their An­zac Day loss to the Dragons.

He was also clash­ing with at­tack­ing coach Ja­son Tay­lor over the team’s struc­tures. I spoke to Joey and he in­sisted he left for per­sonal rea­sons, not be­cause of the dif­fi­culty of jug­gling com­men­tary with coach­ing.
