Visser loving the monsters without fins in WA
Jul

2015


WHILE 2015 is shaping as a year to forget for Nambour-Yandina United in the McDonald's Premier League, the young side deep in a rebuilding phase could turn their fortunes around and quickly.

Word on the street is that a high-profile Coast coach will be ushered in with a stack of cash, in a bid to lure some top-class players back to the Reds, in a bid to make them title contenders once more.

Time will tell whether this turns out to be the case, but given it's that time of year when transfer talk is bandied about in the EPL, we wonder whether NYU may even make a bold bid for one of the many flops at Liverpool, imagine Balotelli latching onto a screamer in the local derby at the Snakepit!

WHILE Mark Visser was setting Twitter alight last week with some epic images of some monster waves off WA, surfers south of the border have been less than willing to get amongst it, given what's been happening with the sharks around Lennox Heads and Ballina in the past two days.

One prominent Coast surfer reckons it's high time the ban on shark fishing was repealed, he says shark numbers have increased dramatically in the past few years, and if nothing changes, said we could expect more and more human vs shark encounters.

IT'D be remiss of us not to make mention of the incredible support shown for the Sunshine Coast Falcons and the Ackerman family by the Coast community in the past fortnight.

From high-profile lawyers and politicians, to struggling clubs from rival codes, even teenagers with their first-ever pay packets, the donations have poured in for the James Ackerman Family Trust Fund, in light of the family's tragic loss.

It's an absolute credit to this community, that time and again we find a way to help out those doing it tough, and to the Falcons, hats off, you guys have been a credit to the code and club the way you handled yourselves.
