Hilarious lure for vacant coaching job

This tantalising money saver is part of the job application which has been advertised on employment website SEEK as the Blues move quickly to replace Damien Keeping, who departed last week.

Some of the other perks listed included discounted rates on Hyundai vehicles and Nike products plus free parking at Ikon Park.

Another interesting aspect of the job description was listed under "additional information": "This position will be offered on a part-time basis however, full-time may be considered".

Whoever is lucky enough to snare the 20 per cent discount card at Ikon will be behind the Eight ball from the start given current captain Brianna Davey is believed to want a trade.
