Martin Pike to coach Bullants Two's!
Good get by the Bullants, Pike should be an interesting addition to the coaching staff as Reserves Coach. Pike replaces Vinnie Datoli who will Coach West Preston in 2009.

His record with Hastings was not fact it was abysmal I'll be interested to see how he goes in the VFL

Sandy. The most successful club in the past 30 years

He'll be a dud, once a dill always a dill,
Hastings finished last the year before Pike coached them. Shane Watson caoched Lower plenty and they never won a game; yet he was able to win an AFL sanctioned position within the under 18's system. Local footy isn't always the best guide, too big a gap between top and bottom.
Considering the issues he had with authority as a player, it will be very interesting to see how he goes as a coach. He DOES have a fair bit of experience to pass on to a very young list. I will be watching with interest to see how he goes.
