Which team would have more chance of winning a grand final:

St Helens coached by Lee Radford
Hull FC coached by Justin Holbrook

Not being antagonistic, just wondered if it’s squad strength or coaching systems that are most important to developing a champion side.

St's are a well oiled machine with some very good player. I think it would take a lot to know them off their tracks.

The fact is St's are a well structured team and not just reliant on individual flair so you could pretty much put anyone in charge of St's for a game and they would still perform to a high level. Hull on the other hand seem to be the opposite of that and rely on individuals rather than any real structured play.

If you took Lewis Hamilton & put him in a Mclaren of course he wouldn't do as well as he does in his Mercedes but he'd do much more with the Mclaren and out perform either Sainz or Norris.

So in a one off game it would be hard to say but if we you'd said over a season then I'd say a Hull with Holbrook would out perform a St's with Radford.
I really enjoy long walks especially when they are taken by people I don't like!

Saints haven't won won a major trophy in the last five years
We've bagged a couple.
Let's see if they can get over the line this year.

That's not the question though.

Holbrook has been in charge for 2 seasons, has Saints playing super rugby and are currently untouchable.

He's also been poached for a head coach's job in the NRL, I can't see Radford being poached by anyone let alone a NRL side.

If we were swapping coaches over a season I'd go for Hull with Holbrook.

Well I'll go for Radders with Saint.
Holbrook will be deemed a failure if he can't win at least one of the big two before departure.

You honestly believe that saints team playing the Radford way would be better than our squad playing the holbrook way. Stupid question anyway , never going to happen

Holbrook is a minge.
Hope Wires beat them at Wembley, and think they might.
If we don't clash with Saints before OT we'll do them in the final, then we can see who the daddy is. :D

Before holbrook came over, pretty much the same saints team was utter gash under cunningham. He's a top coach who would improve any team in the comp
