Woolf at NRL is a gamble. Not saying he won’t be good but it does come more with a risk than getting Ciraldo or Morris. Yes he’s done well with the Tongan team and the team he’s coaching in the SL but signing SL coaches to NRL is a risk even Souths took a gamble when they signed Madge from SL. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t but coaching an international team to NRL standard is a lot different to coaching a club week in and out NRL standard. He’ll probably be a last resort.
? That’s just not true though . What’s truely a gamble is giving a career assistant coach total control .
Some like Bellamy , Demetriou , Fitzgibbon, Payten are groomed and positioned as the heir apparent . So that means given control of an u20s team or reserve grade or some such . Some like Robinson and Holbrook head to super league to cut thier teeth.
Others like Brennan , Barrett , Taylor , Seibold , potter are guys who were great at the assistant role , and wanted to step up . I’m very fearful of these types , as most never have that “thing” that makes a good first grade coach , despite having all the skills on paper .
And the jury is out on Ciraldo IMO. He needs to coach a lower grades side , completely IMO.

Ciraldo was coach of Penrith's under 20's for 2 years winning 2 Minor Premierships and 1 Grand Final

I wouldn't rule Woolf out of the race if CC knocks back WT. Sheens rates Woolf highly.

Gonna apply for a job at the DT. I could write this .

Woolf has been linked with joining Wayne Bennett as his right-hand man at the Dolphins before taking over when Bennett retires.

However, he is also likely to be considered by the Bulldogs or Tigers – or both – if Cameron Ciraldo opts to remain at Penrith.

Can someone help me out here, when was the last time long contract talks ended with us signing the player or coach we were chasing, every time it gets drawn out or another team gets involved, we get the thanks but no thanks response, we are due a win in these

As long as we pick a decent coach and don't waste any more time on those coaches (and players) who enjoy taking Wests tigers for a ride and having a big laugh on the club at the end. I think that it's about time that the club showed courage with making a decision as soon as possible. The longer the club waits on making a decision the more difficult it's going to be for the club for 2023 and beyond.

I'd give you 10 out of 10 but you need to be less binding, more inexact, less credible and add a touch of obfuscation. Other than that, I don't have a problem with it.

Here's the end of the article with who the warriors are on the lookout for..

The Warriors will now have to turn their attention elsewhere. Already Ciraldo and premiership-winning coach Shane Flanagan have ruled out pursuing the job.

Robinson also all but put a line through Kiwis coach Michael Maguire. Robinson said earlier this month that the South Sydney premiership mentor was not on his club’s radar.

It is understood they are on the lookout for an emerging coach, ruling premiership-winner Paul Green out of the mix. The likes of Josh Hannay, John Morris, Ben Hornby and Dean Young could be potential options.

How do you know there isn't a replacement? The thing is, we don't. It has been the Code of Silence from the Club. Remember the complaints fest on the forum when Lee would speak. That's been rectified.
