Aussie Rules: Kangaroos back under-fire noble

North Melbourne have thrown their support behind under-fire coach David Noble and insist he is the man to take the club forward.

The Kangaroos are having another disappointing season and have picked up just one win. They are priced at 250/1 to make the top eight and that seems a long way off.

Outside noise

The club has been heavily criticised with Roos legend Wayne Carey recently describing it as ‘broken’ saying they need to admit there is a problem then fix it.

However club CEO Ben Amarfio has hit back and says the players, the coaches and board are all behind Noble.

"I speak to the players, our coaches speak to the players … the players are happy. They are happy. That's what they are telling us. They are highly engaged," Amarfio told reporters.

"I can only go on what the players and the captain are saying to us. The coach has our backing, he has my backing, he has the board's backing and, as you've heard, he's got the players' backing. “They're saying they're happy, they're saying he's created a great environment, they're saying they're enjoying coming here. He's our man."

Noble pledges future

Meanwhile Noble himself says he is fully committed to the cause and will do all he can to help get the club back on track.

"I took this job on understanding that there would be difficult times. I'm here for the long haul. I want our club to be successful and strong," Noble added.
