Manly will probably sign Madge soon. John Cartwright is available, let's form another Penrith connection - can't have enough Panthers :lol:

Wow - when you look at the field, it is really pretty slim pickings.

I think our best outcome would be to extend Cleary for a year or two and see who is available after that. It would set us back years if we were forced to take a second or third tier coach.

Give Madge a crack. We need a tough coach that will turn the Tigers soft culture around. I also think he would’ve learnt from his final two years at Souths when they struggled... coaching is a balancing act... being a hard task master will wear thin on the playing group after a while.
Year of last finals appearance:
2018 - Roosters, Storm, Rabbitohs, Sharks, Panthers, Broncos, Dragons, Warriors
2017 - Eels, Sea Eagles, Cowboys
2016 - Raiders, Bulldogs, Titans
2013 - Knights
2011 - Tigers

I turned on Fox tonight to watch NRL360 and I thought, “you know what - I’m sick of the bulldust coming from these morons.” Watched reruns of Seinfeld instead.

Cannot believe a word these overrated journalistic hacks say. Kramer on the other hand .......
Came across the "not there's anything wrong with that" episode last night. Much better than 360.
Its an opinion!

X2, hopefully we are talking to him now.

At the moment we have Cleary until the end of 2020, will he sign an extension or will he go? i dont know, do we get rid of him & cost the Tigers a fortune? we cant go through that again. At the moment he is our Coach so hopefully we sign some good players & let him get on with the job of coaching when he comes back to training.

Cleary if he wants to stay for 19/20.

If we are forced into another coach - my vote would go to Neil Henry or Barrett.

Definitely not Madge - don't need Souffs rejects.

Madge or O’Brien for me.
X2. I saw O'Brien on one of the Foxtel Footy shows recently and having worked under Bellamy (like Seibold) he would be fully conversant with the Storm systems and what is required to get a team prepared week in and week out.

Get Sheens on the phone. Royce Simmons is dusting off the witches hats and Skando is pumped he kept his tafe certification in a folder.

Lets relive that 05 magic. We still have half the spine.

Keep Cleary for 2019 and look at the coaches coming off contract as well as a few up and comers i.e O'Brien, Demetriou etc.

Kelly Egan can handle recruitment if we're aiming to play the same style of footy, keep Ivan focussed on the week to week side of things, then wring every cent out of Penrith and take a couple of players and walk into 2020 with a chance at Top 4.

I'd like to say Hodgson but I think he needs another year with the ISP team. If we have to do it for next season I'd suggest either the Melbourne or Brisbane ISP coaches. They've worked under bellamy and Bennett 2 very good NRL coaches and would probably have quite a few ISP developing players that might follow them for loyalty and opportunity.

Craig Field was captain/coach of Wagga Brothers about 9 years ago and is eligible for parole in 2021. Perfect.

A week is a long time in league and a year is an eternity, so fellas lets just see how it all pans out shall we. To be honest no-one can be certain what is gonna happen.
I don't know why but Braith Anasta pisses me off :mrgreen:

As much as I like Hodgo, I don't see him as an option for NRL coach. I wasn't impressed at all with the ISP team especially considering the players that they had at their disposal. The times I watched them they had very little intensity or shape about them and looked like they lacked any real desire. That recipe certainly wouldn't work for our NRL squad.

I don't know much about O'Brien so it's hard to comment. How long has he been an assistant at NRL level?? If he's young and bright and keen to build a reputation for himself maybe he's a good option. I'd certainly prefer someone from way outside the club's circle - so not Hodgo or Payten. Toovey and Hasler don't seem to have the smarts to me, and I didn't like the way Barrett handled himself through the Hastings/DCE saga. Maguire probably has the runs on the board to attract quality players and right now we need to fill our remaining spots with 2-3 quality, impact type guys.
