New coach : Thu Jun 02, 2022 8:46 pm  
Who on earth are we going to get?
I assume it’s going to be either someone from L1/amateur RL, someone who has dropped out of the game or an Aussie who has links to a minor WorldCup bound team. Anyone got any thoughts? It’s really difficult to see a path out of where we are being beaten by more than 3 scores by (for the time being) the worst team in the league.

Daryl Powell might be looking for a job pretty soon.
I believe he applied for the coaches job when mac left. We got the other Powell that time.

As long as they don't dig up Sandy or Enoch Powell we should be ok.

Wouldn’t be a massive surprise if after an exhaustive and thorough recruitment policy our bulldog management team recruited someone who was dead to the post (but apparently they had a very good knowledge of the London and South East RL scene).

It matters little who Hughes employs.... we're going down as surely as a £5 hooker and in L1 it's pub football where the expansion sides go to reassess if it's worth the effort.
Bottom half this year is like an expansionists graveyard with sides from west Wales, Coventry, London and Cornwall all vying for bottom spot with little funding from the game to help them out.
Same in SL. If Toulouse drop down this year then I expect moves to a 2x10 announced for 2024 with a couple of invitational sides......personally, if were invited I'm done with the club. We shouldn't need favours at this stage.

Think we should go for Alexander Dennis or Plaxton but if we want some European influence maybe Van Hool would be a good choice.

We could go for a Duple, which at one time was local to us. However they are probably too old.

You can't put a price on experience though Victor.

Knowledge of the London RL scene is a must though....as it helps us to recruit all those Aussies? Oh hold on that doesn’t make any sense....sigh.

Surely even in our management’s run of poor decision making they would not mix up the need for a new coach with the need for a coach (4 wheels). Thinks.... no you’re right it is plausible they could do it. Real benchmark test for them this!
