Don't think he is what's right for leigh.

If our recruitment is down to him is he the guy you would break the bank for to bringing in his requests ??

Leigh are not far off relegation but also not far of becoming a regular appearance in the super league fixture list. smith would be a risk but a change for him could also be what he needed to get enthused about the game again??

Interviewed tonight on BBC local news programme & said his next job might not even be in rugby league. He came across to me as being somewhat disillusioned with RL.

This would explain a lot about the team's performance this season - if this is how he feels.

He's dead right. RFL might want to employ him in some capacity

Whilst I agree with what he says, it does sort of make you wonder if this apathy and loss of interest had an effect on the team. I know he's the consummate professional but maybe some sort of underlying feeling came through and didn't stimulate the players.

He is right. I've not been interested last few years. Don't know what it is precisely but for me, as a sport, we don't do ourselves any favours at all.

We are a pantomime sport. Everything from Wolves Giants Warriors etc., to Sky's robot coverage, the presentation of which hasn't been invested in for years. Then we have the likes of Barrie McDermott and Eddie Hemmings thinking theyre comedians during the game. And everything in between. It's so old school its bordering retro.

We are also obsessed with growing the sport out of the NW heathland seemingly to try and prove ourselves to the outside world (guess what, no one's watching). We've abandoned historic clubs like Bradford in favour of ridiculous pipe dreams like Toronto which clearly aren't sustainable long term.

RL needs rebranding, professionalising, and needs to throughly reassess its goals. Sky also needs to assist in doing the same.

Didn't he do that for a short while when he was GB coach?

I imagine he will form some sort of motivational-speaking dynasty with Stuart Pearce.
