Lovely guy..
Not a head coach of the Bradford bulls.
Shows that Mr Wood is as useless as expected.
Aims for mediocrity at best and will eventually put us the way of the Bluesox.
I've not seen the club in such a poor state in all the time I've watched them.
The only way we get a reprieve from the inevitable is if someone steps forward to buy Wood & Co out.
And I think the queue to do that would be as long as the high calibre overseas candidates that applied for the job.
(And why lie about the applications?)

This is all a little dispiriting when thinking back to the bunker mentality of the “Administration III” thread.

Dunning has refreshed The Bulls since JK “left”. Results have picked up. There have been losses to Fev & Leigh (free hits as Gledhill puts them) that any Bulls fan would have expected at the start of the season taking a look at the squads being assembled by those two outfits. Discount those and MD’s record is:

Played 6 (3H + 3A)
Won 5
Lost 1
For 185
Agin 84
Diff +101
Points 10

That, projected onto the season so far, would see you sitting in a play-off spot.

For all Nigel Woods’ (many in Bongser’s opinion) shortcomings, he surely still has more contacts within the RFL than do most and therefore knows what’s in the wind when Dunning’s contracted tenure is up.

Saw Jordan Lilley’s post match interview with Gladys; the former seemed to indicate that the team as a whole just wished to know which way the board was going to jump.

The players now know and can back their coach 100%.

It is pleasing that current and past Bulls players that he has coached are backing him on social media
Pollsters doing Excellent job - say recent polls.

What makes you laugh is all the guff about interviews.
I can accept failure, but I can't accept not trying.

Good luck Mark. In the post Leigh match interview he said it was going to take someone to come in with a lot of money to get the club back to SL. It's the most honest thing anyone has said at Odsal in 10 years.
My guess is Noble has volunteered for free, or he wouldn't be here either. It's hard to see any light.

There is nothing to suggest that there weren't interviews and nothing to suggest who was interviewed.

Maybe the interviews went to the tune of:

"Were you to be appointed Bradford Bulls coach (as we hope), your player budget would be X and your salary would be Y"

"What! Y the X did you get me over here? I'm going to get some Zs on the flight back!"

They claimed to have interviewed high quality coaches from around the globe. You’d expect to avoid wasting everyone’s time that there would be in initial enquiry about salary expectations before an interview. Any semi competent business does this - either an expected salary requested with application or an initial conversation prior to an interview.

Technically, and I use that word carefully, if you interviewed more than one Aussie coach, you could then say accurately you’ve interviewed “high quality coaches from around the globe”. Those Aussie coaches could already have been in the uk however.

Regardless of location, they’ve apparently interviewed multiple high quality coaches but gone for a candidate without a proven track record.

Accepting that I might be on my own but I see this is a largely a positive appointment that also demonstrates a pathway for other coaches.. Since taking the interim role there have IMHO been noticeable signs of improvement particularly regarding a more entertaining style of play. Yes Sunday was a battering but blimey look at Leigh's team sheet, was that result really a coaching issue?

Secondly personally I did not know much about Matt Peet until this season. Not a "big" name/big statement appointment as such has already won the CC

Brian Noble as a consultant, yes hands up unless Mr. Dunning requested such an appointment that is somewhat baffling.

Finally, has it all taken too long to announce? Yes, no doubt.
