Wayne Ling to take over Bulldogs
FARMERS prey for a monsoon in the middle of a drought.
Football clubs need look no further that Wayne Ling.
In more than two decades of top-grade coaching in South Australia, Victoria, Tasmania and Queensland, Ling has made a name by turning premiership pretenders into contenders.
Ling delivered Broadbeach its first premiership on the Gold Coast.
He did the same for Burleigh.
And in his most recent tenure with Rockhampton Panthers, he broke a 17-year premiership drought.
Now he is determined to take Brothers Bulldogs to the next level.
But Ling refuses to predict when the Bulldogs 14-year drought will come to an end.
“No-one looks that far in the future,” Ling said yesterday.
“We want to build a good football club and success will come.”
Ling said a culture of accountability, dedication, discipline and fitness were the key elements to a successful club.
