Bennet



  • Hi team

    Suprised this isnt being discussed. I understand its all hearsay at the moment but what are peoples thoughts on possibly getting wayneo.

    Im actually ok with it. Mainly because i think we would get consistency. I did think that with ivan as well though. And possibly some players cpme with him. He has always been able to recruit big names.



  • Probably because its under the other Coach thread





  • Sorry should have dug deeper delete away



  • Wayne Bennett being shopped to Sydney club: Report

    [(https://www.news.com.au/sport/nrl/wayne-bennett-being-shopped-to-wests-tigers-as-replacement-for-ivan-cleary-report/news-story/e1d4710d0ce15a3109629f5ebbdd210a)

    IF the dominos in NRL clubland fall a certain way, Wayne Bennett’s reign at the Brisbane Broncos won’t be his last coaching gig.

    BRISBANE Broncos supercoach Wayne Bennett has reportedly been shopped to the Wests Tigers as a possible replacement for Ivan Cleary.

    The Australian reported late Tuesday night that the seven-time premiership winner has been quietly offered to the joint merger after being told 2019 would be his last year in Brisbane.

    Cleary is under contract at the Tigers until 2020 but the prospect of signing Bennett may mean they decide to cut ties following the 2019 season, allowing him to link up with his son Nathan at Penrith after being offered a lucrative deal to retun to the Panthers as head coach.

    Interestingly, Cleary and Bennett are managed by the same company — SFX Sports — and The Australian said the Tigers have been approcached to see if they’re interested in Bennett.

    The Tigers are believed to be interested in signing an experienced coach and Bennett — who has won six titles with the Broncos and another with the Dragons — certainly fits the bill.

    Cleary is yet to announce what he’ll do after 2020 but he has been offered a massive contract to join Penrith at the completion of his current deal and is expected to accept it.

    Michael Maguire is another coach without an NRL gig who is reportedly being considered by the Tigers, but he is also in straight shootout to perhaps replace Trent Barrett at Manly with assistant Sea Eagles coach John Cartwright.

    Maguire has also been linked with a move to the Broncos to replace Bennett after the 2019 season — and it’s believed that Brisbane would be his preferred destination.

    However, the Broncos have also been linked with Souths coach Anthony Seibold, who is about to enter the final year of his Rabbitohs deal with an extension yet to be agreed upon.

    Signing Bennett would be a significant coup by the Tigers despite the Broncos crashing out in week one of the finals in a massive upset by St George Illawarra.

    He was already on the outer at the Broncos before that capitulation and it was confirmed a couple of weeks ago that the 2019 season would be Bennett’s last in Brisbane.

    Despite being on the verge of turning 70 and having been coaching for over 30 years at the top level, Bennett has repeatedly insisted that he’s not ready to retire just yet.

    A host of coaches come off contract at the end of 2019, several of whom need fast starts next season to secure their futures.

    Canterbury’s Dean Pay and Parramatta’s Brad Arthur are just two coaches who will start next season under immense pressure to perform or their positions will come under intense scrutiny.]((https://www.news.com.au/sport/nrl/wayne-bennett-being-shopped-to-wests-tigers-as-replacement-for-ivan-cleary-report/news-story/e1d4710d0ce15a3109629f5ebbdd210a)

  • So Ivan for 2019 and Bennett for 2020. This is actually a sensible plan for all involved.



  • How can you get Bennett’s name wrong? He’s been in the papers since he coached J. Christ in the Bethlehem under 12’s!!😉



  • @:

    Well if Ivan wants to move on from the Tigers and the Broncos want to move Bennett on then really it should be possible to make it happen for 2019 (provided the Tigers want Bennett and Brisbane can sort a replacement, and they can if they want Maguire…)



  • I’d love to get Bennett. He’d further raise the profile of our club, attract players, and he’s a master at manipulating the media, who for whatever reason have been out to get us the last few years (specifically News Corp).

    One thing we would need to be wary of though is the transition plan for when Bennett stops coaching… both the dragons, and especially the knights struggled big time after he left. Bennett deserves plenty of blame for that, but Tinkler was overly focused on short term results… So there needs to be someone looking out for the long term health of the club (eg a football manager / GM)

    That’s the way I see it too. If it happens I think it will be 2019.

    And they got done for salary cap rorting as well



  • Bennett builds his teams around defence

    That can’t be a bad thing , we can only hope he can bring some talent with him

    PS can someone just check to be certain he doesn’t have a talented relation playing for another club
