Still the same game? I have to disagree there. The sterile stuff on offer these days is miles away from what I remember watching.

Sinfield til the end of the season at Leeds I reckon.
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

For Leeds to be in a position to announce their new coach just 4 days after sacking McDermott suggests they knew for a while he’d be going. Perhaps they knew even before Shaun Wane announced he was going, putting Leeds in pole position for any potential replacements?

Confirmed Sinfield DoR and James Lowes first team coach until the end of the season. Sinfield will stay on and a new Head Coach will come in next season. IMO.

Edwards without a doubt.

So what if hes been out of the game for years? Apart from some small rule changes, the game is still the same game and nobody was tactically better than Edwards as a player. John Monie often said it was like having an extra coach on the field when he was playing. Throw the money at him.

Totally disagree that it's still the same game. It's changed massively in the last 10 years, never mind the last 20. Not experienced enough to be a Head Coach, and would surely want too much money to make it worth him being Assistant Coach.

Totally disagree. He has a pure rugby brain regardless of code. Because he hasn’t been directly involved in RL doesn’t mean he hasn’t watched it and studied it and certainly doesn’t mean he doesn’t understand it. His player management is first class and his experience of managing elite athletes is impressive. With the right assistant coach and Lockers by his side he’d be my first choice by a country mile. Completely fresh view from the top down with some new players to suit it.

I would agree with your post, a fresh pair of eyes and a complete new style is what’s required.

The game has changed massively from his playing days. However I'm sure if Edwards is in the frame, I'm sure hes already educating himself and speaking to God knows how many coaches. He spent time with Wayne Bennett years ago didn't he? I'm sure they would have kept in touch and share all kinds of information. Someone like Edwards who lives and breathes rugby won't be far off knowing what's changed and what hasn't and what modern coaches bring to the game compared to what he would bring.

We've just ended one Wigan old boys club I'd hate for us to start another.

So even if Edwards is the best man for the job, or Lam, Furner or Barrett, they should all be avoided because they have a history with Wigan? I just don’t get that at all.
