I’d say we’re stuck with Cleary for 2 more years. If we pay him to sit on the hill or what ever he’s still going to cost us. Tell me would you want to come here and coach in this “ turbulent” place.
I can see it turning into a Jason Taylor situation if Ivan is retained for the remainder of his contract. Start the season with Ivan and if results are going south, punted. Prefer us to rip the band aid off now.

Macquarie sports radio saying Macguire is tigers first choice to replace Cleary. Reckon Bennett won’t go anywhere for 2019 as he reckons he can win a premiership with the team he has.

Maguire was never my favourite coach but he and Bennett are the best out there that are available. Would be happy to get either.

I am not sold on Maguire. Has a similar pedigree to Potter, except he came home to a decent side.

Lost the dressing room within 2 years.

Wests Tigers announce 2019 player movements
Author Dan Talintyre Timestamp Mon 8 Oct 2018, 02:58 PM

Wests Tigers have today confirmed three player movements with Dylan Smith, Sam McIntyre and Thomas Mikaele to join the club's Top 30 NRL squad in 2019...............
I guess no Oates or TPJ...

This club is so tight we must have half the salary cap left to play with.

Hopefully he's learnt from that. Obviously a fluff article but Shaun Johnson praised him for his open communication whilst with nz

And around and around the coaching merry go round the Wests Tigers continue to go. The only time Wests tigers scored a premiership was with Sheens who at the time of the premiership win had coached Wests Tigers for four years.

Bennett is told he is not wanted and shows up and gives a sermon. Cleary hides and let’s Gus and media stooges do the talking.

Never thought I would say this but Benny Elias got one thing right. The silence is disgraceful the head coach has a responsibility to address the issues but he has gone to ground. What a disgrace, lack of leadership, backbone and a complete phony lacking courage. I think you can see why Bennett has 7 premierships. Cleary has done more damage than JT.

Almost every player who has played under Bennett loves the guy. Integrity is having your players back.

it goes a long long way in this game.
Its an opinion!

Dont you think a coach can improve?

He was sacked for that flaw. If he can accept the blame and look to improve himself i dont see why he cant become a career coach.

Benji may get on the phone to Wayne (like he did with Robbie) and try and convince Wayne to coach the Tigers (that is once established that Cleary is not here in 2019 or even 2020)!!

Well that will put the heat on Bennett to make a call quickly if he thinks we won't wait for him, and I agree we can't wait, Cleary gate has gone to far for Ivan to be our coach next year.
If Bennett won't come next year then Maguire will do, we need this sorted ASAP so the media can get on with annoying Manly or the Bulldogs.

That all sounds like ducks and drakes to me.

The sort of thing you see when Bennett's manager is looking for a little top up from the original Wests offer.

Dont forget Bennett was a big supporter of Russell Packer when they were at the Knights together also. He has a couple of established guys he can call on to get a run down of where the club is at.

Would have coached Mautalino at the Kiwis as well id imagine.

Yep, Bennett wants more, we fire back with the Maguire comment, sounds plausible
