‘I took Trent Robinson astral travelling’: Inside the mind of mysterious ‘Coach Whisperer’



Bradley Charles Stubbs claims he has taken Trent Robinson astral travelling – a state where the spirit leaves the body and goes into the future – during his association with the premiership-winning Roosters coach.


Stubbs, who is dubbed the “Coach Whisperer” after working with leading sporting mentors including Robinson, Michael Maguire, Eddie Jones, Graham Arnold and Michael Cheika, has provided an insight into his methods in his new self-published book, The Science of the Subconscious.


The book tells the story of a professional surfer whose career was ended prematurely due to a car accident, the subsequent nervous breakdown that resulted in him being locked in a psychiatric ward in a straightjacket and padded cell, and how the episode led him to turning his life around by studying the subconscious mind.


Stubbs, who wears three NRL premiership rings from stints with Robinson and Maguire, has passed on those teachings to some of sport’s most respected coaches. One of his key tenets is “believership”, which is a phrase he coined to describe an unshakeable belief in one’s purpose.


However, the most intriguing chapters of the book – an advanced copy of which was provided to this masthead – details his interactions with the nation’s top mentors.

“I took Trent Robinson, Sydney Roosters NRL head coach, astral travelling in the lead-up to the match between the Roosters and Broncos in 2020, where I told him, and he saw a win in excess of 50+ to nil,” Stubbs writes. “The Roosters went on to win 59 to nil. Done!”


Stubbs describes astral travel as a state where “your spirit leaves the body and goes into the future, then returns to the body. You see the result out there and you get clarity and unshakeable faith in your belief of the vision”.


The man known as “BCS” said he had his first out-of-body experience in the 1970s “when I became an eagle sitting in a tree looking down on myself, watching myself watching the eagle in the tree ... I had no idea what I had done until later that I had found out that it was astral travelling”.


He wrote that he was so sure the Roosters would win the 2018 grand final that he asked his wife, Cathy, to submit the tax invoice for his winning bonus on the morning of the game. Cathy talked him out of it due to concerns that it may “change the energy if the wrong person saw the email”. The Roosters took out the title with a 21-6 win over the Storm, providing the first of two premiership rings Stubbs has won with Robinson.


While Robinson isn’t directly quoted, and did not respond to calls for comment, the book quotes an interview Robinson gave about Stubbs on Fox Sports’ NRL360 program in 2019.

“I think everyone else has had their say about what it entails, but none of the coaches he has worked with has,” Robinson said when asked about Stubbs’ methods.


“Yeah, and that’s the privacy, I guess, of the coach. Just the information, or the poking and prodding that he allows around what he sees. I think you know, if you have had any dealings with Bradley, he’s very intense around what he believes and thinks.


“He offers that information and you pick and choose how you want to use it. So, it’s just another tool. I can prod and get a one-percenter in different areas.”

The ability to manifest the future is a recurring theme in the book. Stubbs claims he was able to do this on numerous occasions with Arnold, including during the coach’s record-breaking 2016-17 season at Sydney FC.


“Graham bought into it from the outset and could manifest scores, at an exact time, within a match,” Stubbs writes.


He adds: “I now understood how my brain was wired and how I could create an umbilical cord of energy to my clients. I did not have to be with my clients … I could control their thoughts, energy and manifest the results through them.”


Stubbs claims he can also sense a change in a person’s energy and how that can impact results, which is why he went to extreme lengths to ensure that there were no disruptions before the Rabbitohs broke their 43-year premiership drought in 2014.


“With the 2014 finals approaching, I told Michael Maguire, NRL head coach South Sydney Rabbitohs, that we must keep the right messages from the players,” Stubbs writes.

“I therefore ensured that Russell Crowe, owner of South Sydney, despite being a Hollywood celebrity, was not to come into the dressing rooms and talk to the players before the game and at half-time.


“He is not an NRL coach, had prepared a ‘Gladiator’ talk and would dilute the messages Michael was giving. I tell the coaches; I am not here to make friends, I am here to win. Done!”


Had the result gone the other way, it would literally have been a painful loss.

“After round 16 of the season, when South Sydney were coming fourth on the table, with nine wins and six losses, I made a deal with head coach Michael Maguire that if we did not win the 2014 grand final, I would cut off my left little finger. Michael agreed to cut off his, too.”


Instead, the pair won premiership rings.


While Stubbs has plenty of sceptics, clients are glowing in their praise.


“I believe 201%,” says former Wallabies coach Cheika in a testimonial printed in the book.


“Since meeting you, I understand more about what belief is and I am prepared to go there.”

In the book, Maguire states: “Bradley has come across something not many people truly understand or comprehend. The people that open their minds to it and listen will get something incredible and so very special out of it. Truly inspiring!”


Socceroos coach Arnold goes even further.


“His programmes are 100% unique and whilst I don’t understand exactly how he does all he does, his ability to see things before they happen is profound,” Arnold is quoted as saying. “Bradley has changed me as a man. He has given me a level of self-belief, satisfaction, and enjoyment with my job that I have never experienced before and the results are great, to the level of history making.


“His mentorship has not only instilled confidence and pride within me but has also alleviated stress-related medical symptoms.”


The last comment is a pointer to Stubbs’ work in the medical field. Despite not having any training or qualifications, he claims a series of remarkable results, including helping to heal patients with illnesses considered terminal.


Stubbs – whose signature catchphrase is “Expect to win. Done. Done. Done.” – said he has shared no more than 45 per cent of his programs with his clients to date.

“When your significance is connected to the benefit of mankind, the universe will open doors that no one can close,” Stubbs writes.
