I’d sign Bennett now for 2020. Keep Cleary hostage until Bennett gets here with fresh recruits.
I think that any idea where Cleary stays is an awful idea.
If it’s to keep the chair warm for Bennett, why would it matter?
For sure Bennett would be amazing for us.
I just don’t believe Cleary can do the job as coach for us. He isn’t believable. It will be a write off of a year. And keeping him on just reeks of pathetic. It will be too difficult to stomach. I’d rather have an interim coach of Bennett was assured for 2020.

The more this drags on, the more I think that Bennett and Siebold will swap. I reckon we will end up with Madge. I would still prefer Bennett.
Madge's Maulers.

However if Bennett put pen to paper tomorrow and signs with the WTs for 2020, things would suddenly snowball I we could end up with him for 2019. I don't think Bennett would sign with WTs for 2019 because he wants a payout. It would be a ballsie move, I don't think Pascoe and Go would do it.
Gus would. Actually he did already with Cleary and now we want to release him.
in Ivan we distrust

Pascoe said when he sacked Taylor that the club would no longer drift. Couldn’t stand another season waiting.
Let’s start ‘Rebuild Mark 4’ with Madge next year.

All I care is they get to finish the job they start and see out their initial contract

I think recruitment wise and sponsorship wise Bennett is a no brainer

Whether Bennett's taking the role for the right reasons has me slightly concerned

I don't know if Madge has pulling power recruitment wise , but you know what your getting

My head leans to Cleary 2019 ,Bennett 2020 but I wonder if anyone's heart will be in 2019 if this happens and how much momentum this will kill in the playing group

Would both continue coaching their respective national teams if taking the wt job? I've got no issues if whoever we appoint did continue coaching England or NZ.

Uncle Wayne should be off playing lawn bowls.

Let's give Brett Hodgson a chance. At least there will some sort of continuity rather than another disruptive overhaul.

Bett Hodgson not ready to coach at NRL level just yet a couple of years under Bennett/ Maguire perfect scenario. Whoever we end up with won't sign a 1 year deal it would have to be at least a 3 year deal.Bennett with his Broncos contacts would be ideal Maguire what you see is what you get and his ties to the Kiwis could work for WTS

As this saga has gone on, my feelings that we absolutely must not have Cleary as coach in 2019 have strengthened. Any solution but Cleary again, is my view.

A lot of fans on here are talking about how Bennett will bring players with him and how if he stays at the Broncs next season he might even have more pull with more players following him. Wouldn't the Broncos management be concerned about this? Wouldn't they consider letting him go earlier to avoid it? The difference is that maybe he doesn't want to go, so he hangs out and now they are put in a position where they have to pay him out to halt the possible future exodus of players.

Who knows? If it has to be that Bennett could only come in 2020 then I'd be biting the bullet and going for Madge.

The real reason the Broncos are a powerhouse is because its the club that Wayne built.
The success that comes from winning premierships is unstated.
Because of the Bennet onfield blueprint the sponsorship coffers flowed in .
The fan base increased.
Like him or love him his man management is first class.
Benji knows from the inside what hes like and gives a glowing endorsement.
Think of the players and recruitment opportunities that would come to the club.
Perfect to sign the next Gareth Ellis or Pom superstar.
The membership and gate would increase.
There is too much upside with a potential Bennett Deal.

Both coaches have a point to prove.
I voted for Wayne " Yoda" Bennett.

Go hard or go home
