The appointment of Brian McDermott to Toronto would be a perfect match. The former coach of the USA rugby league team needs another north American challenge. Toronto needs his talent.

If McDermott is appointed at Toronto, then Toronto's promotion to Super League next September becomes a mere formality.

I imagine he'd be interested in the vacancy (if there is one) but I guess he will have received other offers

Personally hope his next move is to write an autobiography telling his version of events at Headingley giving the unjust stick he got there from the rumours and gossips whilst always holding his own council and giving the correct answers & responses for his position at the club.

For a man who was often labelled as having an ego by some fans he’s gone away and not heard a peep from him in 4 months whilst the Saintly Sir Kevin has been have having slights digs at him in interviews after the propaganda job done in the As Good As It Gets film.

I always found it odd the stick he got while winning grand finals year on year I know some said sinfield and co ran the team but I think this season just gone has put that myth to bed

People wrote him off early days and some could never admit they were wrong that’s why they had to come up with myths and rumours to explain our success.

Like I mentioned on another thread he wasn’t given much with the chequebook to replace key players and didn’t get a marquee signing in his 7 and a half years there. The stadium work is done and suddenly Dave Furner already has one marquee signing with another rumoured to be on his way and Furner hasn’t even arrived in the country. Best excuse some can come up with is that McDermott didn’t want to sign new and better players.

Get McDermott to Widnes. Leave the Moose lovers to throw Lacrosse sticks at each other.

Toronto should be doing all they can to entice him to be their next manager. He is exactly what they need to take them to the next level. If they cannot secure his services then they should be looking at Wayne bennett or Michael Maguire, both of whom are available.

My apologies. You are correct. Maybe thats why hes turned down wests because he fancies Toronto in 2020?

It looks right up McDermott's street, at Leeds he had a special group of players with a mentality and ruthlessness that meant they were almost unbeatable in big matches. Required no coaching.

At Toronto he will have a squad of players which are better than everyone else in the league. Requires no coaching.
