Does anyone know what Lam is supposed to have done? I’ve never heard anything about Lam having issues off the park. In Australia, he is always talked about as the ultimate professional. He could also bring his lad over with him and solve our halfback problem.

Looking at some of the other options.

Furner was heavily involved when Blake Ferguson left Canberra. I can’t remember everything about the saga, but it did cause did divisions in the player group which is something we don’t need. He does have a lot of experience as an assistant. His Canberra stats aren’t that great.

Demetriou has glowing reports too, but less exposure coaching in top grade, apart from as an assistant which he is at the moment. He could be another Madge.

Given what Mr Lenegan has said we can rule the like of Bennett out.


From what I have heard before it was along the lines of what Ferres/Carney are aledged to have done in the past. But how true that is and if it even happened I don’t know and suspect few do.

Someone made a single cryptic comment on here about Lam, and never followed it up ... so I was actually being facetious when I mentioned that. I'd have Lam like a shot.


Thanks.

My Choice would be Edwards as "part time" Head Coach for 2019 and full time 2020.

Farrell has just signed a 3 year deal with Irish RU.
Ford failed as a RL coach at Oldham.
Deacon, don't think so. Harris's departure made the difference not Deacon's.

Furner will go to Leeds.
Bennett won't come here.
Lam, never ever.

Maguire as Director of Rugby for 12 months and Edwards as Head Coach with Deacon as his assistant. Would cost an absolute fortune but we’d shift record numbers of season tickets :D
21 - 19 - 4

Warrington led 16-2 in Saturday's Grand Final, but their joy was short-lived as Wigan roared back to win the Super League title and extend the Wire's 58-year wait to be champions

I have heard from a number of people that Furner is the next coach. It seems that Leeds' search for a new coach could speed up the announcement also. I would prefer us to announce it at the end of the season.

We should go nowhere near any coaches that have been sacked due to 5h!te performances of their teams, so that rules Madge out also i get the feeling he would only use us a stepping stone like he did the first time
All the good music has already been written by people with wigs and stuff.

If you apply that rule you have to rule out Furner. He was fired from Canberra. He is the only coach they have ever sacked. He was lambasted for changing their style of play. (He replaced Neil Henry who would be a very good choice for our new coach).

I also can’t see it being Madge anyway. He had his time, he is now the coach of New Zealand. Plus his style of play is now outdated. His block plays have turned around at Souths and they are playing a much more attractive style of play and winning.

Are you sure, didn't he have a rumble in the hay with Lockers sister when he was at the club, hence his departure to Leeds?

I'd be looking for an NRL assistant, someone to come in with fire in the belly, and wanting to make their mark rather than having allegiances to the way things are done already. I'm concerned that the strict professional culture Maguire instilled has slipped a bit with the Bateman and Tomkins incidents. With Hardaker coming in, we need a strong disciplinarian.
