Australian Football: Moon ready to wield Roar axe

Brisbane Roar coach Warren Moon is far from happy with the effort levels of some of his players and is ready to move them on over the close season.

Roar have avoided picking up the wooden spoon but it has been another disappointing campaign for Moon’s men as they have got nowhere near finals.

Disappointing season

There is a good chance that only Perth Glory will finish below them and Moon was far from happy following his side’s 1-1 draw against Melbourne Victory on Saturday.

Victory are third on the ladder so a point is not a disaster but Moon was not happy and a summer of change looks to be on the cards.

"It's about performance. It's about pride in the shirt," Moon said after the game. "Finding people for next season in terms of what we're doing and in terms of the young boys getting an opportunity.

"Finding players that want to stand up and be counted, we're not where we want to be and we certainly don't want to stay there next season."

Adams shines

One bright spark for Moon was the performance of starlet Eli Adams who made his starting debut. But it also highlighted the issues Moon has elsewhere. And some are clearly playing for their futures.

"Young boys showing the way. It shouldn't be the way for our squad,” Moon added. "That's why we need to readdress that for next season. There's a lot on the line for us so if anyone wants to down tools they can but they won't be part of the squad for me."
