North Melbourne Kangaroos midfielder Dom Tyson provides insight into new coach David Noble


Noble has also been on board with the plans to manage Tyson, 27, as he looks to break through after a frustrating first couple of seasons at Arden Street.

Loading

Traded from Melbourne at the end of 2018, Tyson played North’s first three AFL matches of 2019 under Brad Scott before being dropped. Tyson then strained his calf the next week in the VFL, with a tendon issue lingering until late in the season. He got back for the second last VFL match of the season only to dislocate his shoulder, requiring a full shoulder reconstruction.

He worked his way back to full fitness early in 2020 but then sustained another tendon injury in that left calf in mid-June. He tried to get back for the late part of the season before the plug was pulled towards the end of North’s ill-fated hub stint.

But Tyson, who was runner-up in Melbourne’s best and fairest in 2014, feels he is at last over his problems and in line to take on St Kilda in a practice match later this week. He has been training fully with the Roos’ main group on Mondays and Fridays but has been on a modified program on Wednesdays to aid with the calf concerns. He’s also been doing pilates, spending time in the ocean and getting treatment outside the club.

“In a good spot at the moment. I’ve finally had a consistent run at training,” Tyson said.

“I’ve got a pretty strict program in place. It’s been working well, so it’s given me an opportunity to at least get to the start line this year.”

Despite the challenges of his last couple of seasons, Tyson says he has remained upbeat.

“I’ve always had that ‘what’s next, what can I do right now?’ approach. I’ve sort of stuck my teeth into a few things off-field as well, which has given me great balance,” he said.

He used 2020 to move his golf apparel brand Clutch & Co from a “hobby business” to something more serious, and also finished a commerce degree.

As he enters the final year of his contract, Tyson said he is determined to prove that his recruitment was not a bust. Renowned as an inside midfielder, he has been spending some time on the wing and at half-back and is open to playing anywhere if it means regular senior football.

“I’m still super motivated to play some good footy for the North Melbourne Football Club. It hasn’t sat well with me that I haven’t really exposed myself to other players and fans and the coaches. I’ve got that inner drive, I want to get back to my best footy.”

He has also been reunited with former Melbourne coach Paul Roos, who has joined North in a mentoring role.

“Been good to have a familiar face back in at the club for me. He’s calm and measured as well. I think he’ll be a great link,” he said.

David Noble looking forward to Paul Roos’ input at North Melbourne Kangaroos

“I have been around for a while but I am a first-year coach as [in] AFL, so I will be able to use him as a sounding board on areas, whether it is selection process, best and fairest, how I am feeling and [getting] balance of life [right].

“[Football manager] Brady [Rawlings] will be able to pick his brains, as [CEO] Ben Amarfio will and the board. He is a great resource to use and I am looking forward to working with him.”

Both of Noble’s two senior AFL games in 1991 were played at Fitzroy alongside Roos and his senior assistant John Blakey, who worked at the Swans with Roos and has become Noble’s senior assistant at North Melbourne in 2021.

The Kangaroos have adjusted their program slightly in 2021 to give players a set day off each week and set up a training routine designed to keep intensity high after Noble and Blakey developed the game style they will coach, which is likely to be based on fast footy off a strong contested base.

Noble, who will begin the year coaching from the bench, said the focus will be on constant improvement but they will not be using that as a shield from the ultimate goal, which is to compete for a premiership.

The Kangaroos, apart from replacing their coach, delisted 11 players last season before bringing in four recruits from other clubs and a selection of draft hopefuls led by midfielder Will Phillips, who was selected with pick three.

“It’s not quite a day at a time [but] I think when a new coach comes in with new ideas it takes a little while. Ultimately we want to chase success,” Noble said. “We want our fans to grow with the players.”

Victoria COVID restrictions increased, 2021 Australian Open participants to isolate, Club Noble, Melbourne Grand Hyatt listed, WA lockdown continues


“Yes, there will be delays, there is no other way around it, it has got to be done meticulously,” he said.

“We cannot have people stampeding through those bases, it must be done slowly, meticulously. I don’t want a testing site to become a super spreading site. It has to be done very carefully.”

Victoria’s COVID-19 response commander, Jeroen Weimar, apologised for the delays but said the state government was setting up at least four additional testing sites today and was working to increase capacity in Clayton, Brighton and in the CBD.

“We would ask you to check before you go to the site that you want to go to to make sure that the queues there are not excessively long,” he said.

“We will ensure the testing capacity is there today, tomorrow, over the weekend and as long as is necessary to run this particular outbreak to ground.

“We know this virus is wildly infectious. We know it is still now an issue for us to deal with yet again. We will, as the Victorian community, deal with it in the same way we always do – acting swiftly and promptly.”

Daily wastewater testing will now occur in Melbourne’s south-east water catchment.

North’s Noble hits ground running at Roos


New North Melbourne coach David Noble has wasted no time outlining his bold expectations of the AFL club’s stack of new recruits.

It might be his first senior AFL coaching job, but the 53-year-old has made an immediate impact at Arden St after the club’s tumultuous 2020.

Before Noble’s appointment in November, the Kangaroos delivered a brutal list cull by axing 11 players.

The list clean-out has given Noble to undertake an extensive rebuild for the first time in North’s history.

Former GWS defender Aidan Corr is one of the new faces at North and already enthused about resurrecting his career under Noble.

After being primarily used for lockdown jobs at the Giants, Corr is determined to become an attacking rebounding backman.

“(Noble) actually interviewed me when I was a kid, when he was at the (Adelaide) Crows so I’ve had little bits to do with him,” Corr said.

“We haven’t really sat down one-on-one yet. We’ve had a few phone calls.

“He wants me to add a fair bit to my game which I believe I can do, and need to do.

“We had (Nick Haynes) taking most of the intercept marks (at GWS). I would love to add that to my game, create some more attack.”

North’s highest-profile recruit, Jaidyn Stephenson, is set on putting a difficult 2020 at Collingwood behind him and recapturing the form which won him the 2018 Rising Star award.

“(Noble’s) great out on the field. He has a good mixture of having a laugh and being very instructive,” he said.

“He will come over during training and say ‘Stevo, I want you to talk a bit more or you’re doing really well here’ so I feel really encouraged by him.

“I have (had one-on-one chats with him) and I’m probably not going to disclose them…but I get along pretty well with him.”

Justin Leppitsch’s advice for first-time AFL coach David Noble


Justin Leppitsch has encouraged new North Melbourne coach David Noble to not neglect playing experienced players during the club’s rebuild phase.

Noble will take the reins at Arden Street after the Kangaroos had a forgettable 2020 campaign where they narrowly avoided the wooden spoon with a 3-14 win-loss record.

Leppitsch, who was tasked with rebuilding Brisbane during his three seasons as coach, says North Melbourne should blood youth but combine that with some experienced heads to ensure they remain competitive in 2021.

“I don’t think North Melbourne is in the state that it was when I took over Brisbane,” the triple premiership Lion told SEN Brekafast.

“It’s getting more maturity in the group. I know it’s easy to play young kids and lots of them, but I think the supporters need to see a bit of hope and not see 80-point losses.

“Because as we know with young kids there is inconsistency so the more you have the more inconsistent you are.

“So just adding a sprinkling of experience just to keep the team more competitive while you’re still trying to reach those end goals of having a team in finals, not just for one year or two years, but you want it for a long period of time – you want a four or five year crack at it which you might get two or three Grand Finals out of it.

“I think that should be the goal of all clubs.”

North Melbourne enter next week’s AFL Draft with picks 2, 11, 30, 39, 71, 81 up their sleeve.

David Noble responds to Roos chairman’s comments


New North Melbourne coach David Noble has provided his insight into comments made by club chairman Ben Buckley earlier in the day.

Buckley suggested on SEN Breakfast that the new coach has “got two to three years to get us in a position where we’re competing regularly in the top four and ultimately looking to win a premiership”.

The comments raised eyebrows around the football industry, with many wondering why Noble was put under so much pressure so soon.

Kane Cornes tweeted: “This quote will be replayed a few times in two years. Tough gig”.

Noble however said he and Buckley are on the same page and the comments weren’t a surprise to him.

“We talked about that at the board. Like, to be honest they’re discussions that we have had,” Noble told SEN’s Bob and Andy.

“We’re a team that’s honest and open and genuine so it’s not something we hadn’t talked about in the lead-up to that.”

On how he wants to shape the club on field, Noble said his aim is to create a club that puts out a consistent performance.

“I think we’ve got to be careful we don’t become too complicated,” he said.

“We just want our club to become reliable. We just want to present reliable performance on an ongoing basis and continue to grow and improve.

“There’s no ceiling on what that looks like.

“I’m not necessarily going to be looking at what that looks like from a win and loss because we know that that becomes your outcome and if you focus on the outcome you miss out on the process.

“We’ve got a really exciting group. We’re going back to the draft. We’ve got some older heads that are still playing good footy, we’ve got some exciting youth that have got games under their belt and we need our guys to be reliable in their performance.”

Noble on AFL deadline to turn North around


North Melbourne’s hierarchy is adamant a three-year deadline placed on David Noble to lift the AFL club back into premiership contention is realistic.

The Kangaroos are coming off a horror 2020 season that yielded just three wins and ended with Rhyce Shaw stepping down as coach for personal reasons.

But they are seeking a swift turnaround under former Brisbane Lions football manager Noble, who was appointed as Shaw’s successor last week.

On Monday, chairman Ben Buckley revealed North’s high expectations of Noble, which include turning the struggling team into a flag contender within “two to three years”.

“If a club is not ambitious then it’s really not serving its members properly,” Buckley said.

“Every club in the competition ultimately wants to win a premiership and the best way to do that is to be a consistent performer in the top four.

“Time frames are always difficult things to nail down but I think it’s realistic that within that time period we should be competing at that level.

“We’re not going to get there immediately; there’s still parts of the puzzle to put together and there’s foundations to build on.

“But ultimately that’s our goal and I don’t think we should apologise for it.”

Noble, 53, said the optimistic target was in line with what the North board had outlined to him before his appointment to his first senior AFL coaching position.

“We’ve got to have ambition, there’s no problem with that,” Noble said.

“The chairman made it really clear that we’ve got to get ourselves organised, we’ve got to build a plan and it’s got to be long-term, but there’s no ceiling on our group.

“Therefore that’s absolutely in alignment with what we’ve already talked about.”

Noble has been signed on a rolling contract that North chief executive Ben Amarfio said was an economic decision based around reducing the amount of fixed costs at the club.

In effect, it means it will likely cost less for the Kangaroos to sack Noble if the relationship turns sour than if he was on a fixed-term contract.

AFL premiership coach Paul Roos was an integral figure on the North selection panel that hired Noble – his former Fitzroy teammate – and will be installed in a wide-ranging advisory role at the Kangaroos next season.

He will work closely with Noble and the football department, as well as Amarfio and chairman Ben Buckley.

Noble will have John Blakey as a senior assistant coach and still has forward and midfield coaches to appoint before the pre-season program ramps up in January.

Noble promised an attack-first game-style that will set the club up for long-term success and help drag supporters back through the turnstiles.

“We need to build a platform of capacity to play finals long-term; that’s the avenue that we need to go down,” Noble said.

“I’d like to be attacking but we need to have a pretty ruthless defensive side to our game as well.

“There’s some elements that we’ve got to address with the group when we get back in, but I’d like to attack and then defend … and then win.”

North to chase rapid AFL rise under Noble


North Melbourne’s hierarchy is adamant transforming the Kangaroos into an AFL premiership contender within three years is a realistic target under new coach David Noble.

Noble embraces North top-four plan


“We’ve got to set a path around long-term, sustainable success. We’re not going to chase wins just for this year, we’re going to chase wins every single time we are out on the paddock, make no bones about it,” Noble told reporters on Monday.

“But we need to do it in a matter that’s going to be sustainable and hold up under finals pressure.

“We’ve got some young talent. We’re going to the draft this year, we’ll probably go to the draft again next year.

“We’ll teach, we’ll educate, we’ll let them fall over and fail and we’ll pick them up and keep moving forward.”

That education is set to be delivered by not just Noble and his assistants but also by the experienced Roos, who helped reset the Melbourne Football Club before handing over to Simon Goodwin.

Chief executive Ben Amarfio confirmed that Roos is likely to have an official role in the football department next season, although the club is still working through the finer details.

“I’m really keen for him to have a role,” Noble said of Roos.

“I think we can absolutely utilise his knowledge and experience. He’s coached two clubs, for me he’ll be a great sounding board, I’m sure he’ll be a good counsel for me a number of times. He’ll be great for our assistant coaches, he worked with John Blakey [at Sydney], he’ll be a great mentor for some of our players.

“I’m really looking forward to working with Roosy … I think he’s got some great experiences that can only make us, as an organisation, better.”

Noble was also asked about the comments from his chairman Ben Buckley, who said earlier on Monday morning in a radio interview that the club expected to be a consistent top-four team and contending for a premiership in two to three years.

The new coach said he agreed with the timeline.

“That’s in line with what we spoke about at the board meeting,” Noble said.

“We’ve got to have ambition, there’s no problem with that. We’ve got to get ourselves organised.”

Noble on deadline to turn North around


New coach David Noble has been given up to three years to lift struggling North Melbourne into the AFL top four and start challenging for a premiership.

The 53-year-old was formally appointed on Friday as the Kangaroos’ third coach in as many years and will begin work immediately.

He takes over from Rhyce Shaw, who stood down for personal reasons in October.

North are coming off a horror 2020 season in which they won only three games and lost their last eight in succession.

Only percentage separated them from wooden spooners Adelaide.

But Kangaroos chairman Ben Buckley has high expectations of Noble and expects him to turn the team’s fortunes around quickly.

“These things are always hard to put an exact time frame on but there’s no doubt that we are in a transition phase,” Buckley told SEN.

“We’ve changed the age profile of the list dramatically in the last six months; we’ve got a young group and an exciting group coming through, but a core group that should take us through the next 5-10 years.

“So I think that, realistically, David’s got 2-3 years to really get us into a position where we’re competing regularly in the top four and ultimately looking to win a premiership.

“That’s our ultimate goal.”

Noble will speak publicly for the first time as North coach at a press conference on Monday.
