I had some crazy idea they were going to shock us all by announcing someone like Wayne Bennett.

It's an odd one for sure. But their situation reminds me of us in the late 1990s, when the years of success had finally ended and Mo and DW didn't seem to know how to replicate them because they hadn't twigged that the very good, very settled team they'd had previously had also been coaching itself for several years and so its retirement was a double loss. Even chucking money at a club doesn't recreate that level of on-field and off-field superiority overnight.

As the OP says, it could be a while before Leeds are challenging for silverware again.

He just about saved them from relegation they must want another season of “steady” rugby next time out I can’t see them as serious contenders for silverware though

Can see the temptation after steadying the ship, but I'd put anything on them living to regret this.

This would have been like us sacking Lam mid season and signing John Kear again.

It's a strange one I agree, but I know quite a few people who have been influenced by Agar and every one them has been very positive about him and his knowledge of the game.

SAINTS THE ORIGINAL AND PERENNIAL CHEATS

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.

For 27 - 0 you get a trophy
For 75 - 0 you get sod all.

Wigan had eight in a row
Saints have five in a row

I’m surprised they haven’t held fire and gone in for the relegated coach. Ward, Smith or Chester would all make more sense for Leeds than Agar surely.

Even with Agar in charge though, you can’t write off Leeds challenging for silverware next year. They can’t do any worse than this year and the competition is as weak as it’s ever been.
22 - 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

It's a strange one this. He's never had much success in his stints at other clubs and, even though they may be playing a little better, currently has Leeds 2 points above relegation... The exact same position they were in before he took over. Lacks ambition as an appointment for mine.
