Ivan said he would honour his contract and Coach us in 2019. Wayne said he would come in 2020. Pascoe pulled the trigger by saying no to Bennett and Ivan, and hired Maguire. Another sliding doors moment for WT.
It wasnt quite that simple and I’m sure that wasn’t just Pascoes call.

Newcastle are going to be losing a few players who aren't too happy with how things are up there, I'd expect us to grab one or two of them and there's probably a player or two we will release also. With the World Cup coming that will probably slow down player movements for some but there are fringe players who will be on the move

My guess is he/she’s taking a punt

Correct - It was a rubbish narrative....
The club couldn't keep a coach who's intention it was to leave - No one hear would have swallowed it if we did.
Bennett wasn't coming for a season later.... Broncos shafted him after we got Maguire.

The situation was handled by the club as good as it could have been at the time.

The Tigers had that before letting Hartigan go, only to replace him with Sheens who we all know his track record with recruitment & retention. The Tigers have gone from one of best recruiters in Qld to possibly the worst with their jobs for mates program.

Interesting comment re QLD giving it to Sheens yet under his previous watch we established the Keebra Park agreement which was hailed by many across the league including within QLD.

In benjis latest podcast he did mention he is working on a sneaky signing in hopeing it’s klemmer and it’s already done. Imagine klemmer running off api with stefano for the next hit up then a wide pass to papali the tackle after very exciting times

Did you agree with me on purpose?
Or you just didn't read what you posted?

Article dated 2018 - Bennett to sign for 20-21 at Rabbits...

Kinda woulda left us with no coach for a year or so - Were you going to do it?

Bennett had signed with Souths before we signed Maguire

Read the article again - Pay particular attention to the dates noted.

Bennett agreed to coach us - But not before 2020, He wouldn't leave his Broncos deal and said that at the time. We needed a coach for 2019...
Thought that was common knowledge?

Could've kept Cleary for 2019 with the knowledge that Bennett was coming for 2020. Would've helped with Recruitment not harmed it. Choosing Madge worked well.

Bulldogs won’t be able to afford Klemmer so that’s a pipe dream they’re so tight with there cap and still trying to upgrade Burton and buy a fullback/half won’t waste big money on a forward unless they get rid of TPJ or Thompson and even then it’s still unlikely - knights will release him early to whoever can offer to chip in the most towards his 800k contract and we’ll beat any dogs offer for sure

Klemmer and Lenui will make our pack complete

8. Stefano Utoikamanu
9. Api Korisau
10. David Klemmer
11. Shawn Blore
12. Isiah Papalili
13. Jackson Hastings

14. Tommy Talau
15. Spencer Lenui
16. Alex Twal
17. Joe Ofanguea

Are you changing your earlier stated facts now - Or what?

Hindsight is wonderful isn't it?
How would keeping a coach that was looking to get to another club ASAP
(Where his son was the star) and win a couple premierships have worked out do you think??
- Especially when we started to lose a few games...

Tell me how common knowledge the coach is leaving 12 months in advance would help recruitment (Or performance - Of the squad or staff?)

Bennett helps recruitment? How's that working at the Dolphins?

Just bullshit theories / talk and typical history revising here - again...

Article is there...

They'd be trying to offload the Pom to make room for Klemmer - God I hope we don't give them a leg up...
I don't mind Klemmer, Just think he's a nit similar shape to Stefano.... I like a bit of variation in the middle.... So the opposites don't just need to do the same job on the same type player.

Look at the JFH - Leota... RCG and Paulo.
Different shape players.... Make the defence harder.
