COASH Roger Delaney will make a decision within a month whether he will go around with the Roos again in 2012.
Maybe Saturday’s encouraging win over Springwood may help convince Delaney that Maroochy are on the right track as far as next year goes because it was a good way to end a tough campaign for the Sunshine Coast outfit.

Maroochy beat Springwood by 15.17 (107) to 13.9 (87) for only their second win of the year.
“I’m not sure about next year,” said Delaney. “The decision has been left to me and I’ll let them know in a month or so.
“But I’d like to coach again.”
Saturday’s victory came after an ordinary first quarter when Springwood led by 4.3 to 1.2.
“The first quarter was horrible, we were half asleep,” said Delaney, who gave his troops a major spray at the first break.
“We had the breeze (for the second quarter), but that is just one thing. We got the ball and controlled it. They had been slaughtering us around the contests in the first quarter.”
Delaney also made some positional changes, the move of Dean Leary from full-back to centre half-forward the most telling because it gave spearhead Jarrod Clarke (five goals) some space.
Regular among Maroochy’s best Kane Tyson again featured prominently for the visitors, as did Jarrod Gale on the ball and centre half-back Callum Low.
Springwood’s indisposed captain Shane Murrihy likened the change in fortunes during the second term was like a switch had been turned on by Maroochy.
“For the first quarter and a half we were hard at the footy and possessing it well. Then something clicked and they were more intense,” said Murrihy.
Murrihy said despite the closeness of the scoreboard in the third quarter, when the Pumas kicked 2.3 to 2.1, belied the situation.
“Maroochy were the better side because they won the contested footy,” he said.
Best for Springwood were ruckman Tiger Monk, Mark Thompson in the midfield and best and fairest fancy Michael Grose on the ball.
