David Saker was appointed as First renegades coach leading the club to a fifth-place finish in the same season he oversaw Victoria’s triumphant Shield winning campaign.
In just three years Saker was the Fastest Bowling in Australia but then he resigned February 2019.
“Obviously a lot of things went wrong at that time. The finger-pointing is going to go on and on and on,” Saker said
“There were a lot of people to blame. It could have been me to blame, it could have been someone else. It could have been stopped and it wasn’t, which is unfortunate. ”
“Cameron’s a very nice guy. He’s just doing it to get something off his chest … He’s not going to be the last.
“You could point your finger at me, you could point your finger at Boof”.
“The disappointing thing is it’s never going to go away. Regardless of what’s said. We all know that we made a monumental mistake. The gravity wasn’t as plain until it all came out.” Saker explained
