    I’ve just watched the clip and God she’s breaking my heart!

    I really hope she absolutely smashes it at Lightning as she really deserves it.

    Lovely, lovely person.

    At this rate Bayman is going to be playing – a LOT!

    Bet Sara Bayman is chuffed. Her three best players are sodding off to Australia!

    Am I missing something or do lots of retired England players start coaching within few years of retirement, and many making highly esteemed roles were quickly in my opinion.

    I’m not sure what credentials you need to be a Superleague coach but I think a lot of players will have coaching experience and credentials as quite a few do it as their full time job so I guess it’s the next step up. Plus they’ve been there as a player.

    It’s not quite as hard as say in the football world. You don’t get recently retired players taking over a Premiership club! (although they do have to take coaching courses and badges before they can).

    Didn’t we have this conversation before on another thread??

    I wouldn’t say they became coaches really quickly but as BoardBean says it’s the next step if they want to give back or remain in the sport.

    The thing is now they’re not even waiting to retire. Perhaps other teams have seen what Greenway did and think they can do it too. Look at Mikki Austin. She’s now player-coach at Storm and she’s just turned 25! Seriously? Hope she goes well, but that would be like Maddy Proud suddenly being named player-coach at the Swifts!

    Yes see I don’t understand how a player can be coach too, isn’t it a conflict of interest for the rest of the members of team?

    Well, at least Sara Bayman is coming from outside. In the case of Austin at Storm, she’s now going to be coaching players who she’s been playing with and some of them are far more experienced than her.
