JT is smarter than we think, this is my take so far.
JT comes to the club knowing he has to clean it out, so he lets players leave and maybe pushes some out the door, this leaves him with a very thin NRL squad but full of junior talent.
So he has to pick from a very small squad, should he win he is seen as a great coach BUT if he loses he falls back on the OLD line we are blooding juniors and it will take time, he is in a win , win situation.
from what is left over after the NSW CUP side we will get the same names that failed last year, get ready for a 2-3 year period of excuses i think it will be a long painful year.
but i hope he is a master coach and it all falls his way.
