    I doubt Raiders would let him considering he had a gun roster this year, almost no injuries to speak of and couldn't make the 8 being there on a full time basis.

    Except that the Raiders have already indicated they are open to it.

    I wonder if anyone at NSWRL HQ is really considering giving Stuart the Origin coaching job.... Or is it simply his mates in the media pumping him up and running with it? An overwhelming number of league fans, including Raiders fans, have identified his shortcomings and pointed out that his team failed badly in 2017.... It's like we're in the Twilight Zone and only people who post on LU have the ability to recognise how poor a coach he is.... It's really quite bizarre....

    After the defeat by Melbourne, Stuart said :

    "It's not all negatives from where I sit and I certainly won't fabricate anything with the players, but it's not about us now. We haven't self destructed, we haven't ruined what we've built so far... But not destructing what we've been building over the last two years has been a credit to the players ... it's really good to be in a position now to say that - that we haven't self destructed."

    The Raiders are going backwards faster than an Italian tank. After making the Prelim final last year, how does he think they haven't self destructed?

    From 2nd to 10th in a season isn't a self destruction. Okay lol

    Sounds like Wayne Bennett's "it's not a slump"

    People should stop picking on Ricky Stuart. He is a coaching dynamo who just happens to be very highly strung, and he has had a bit of bad luck in 2017. But I think he will come good in 2018, with Cooper Cronk leaving Melbourne. I foresee Canberra vs Sydney Roosters in the 2018 Grand Final

    If I recall correctly, Ricky did not get fined for his 47 texers post game press conference,

    Is that correct?

    If not, why not?

    More inconsistencies!

    Agree. He should have been smacked hard. The NRL shooting themselves in the foot again.

    I don't know why there isn't a thread for SuperCoach Stephen Kearney. Makes Ricky look like Jack Gibson.

    Enough
    You guys blew it in the finals, not the officials, the Sharks football team blew it, your coach made a real Ricky Stuart of himself in the presser, embarrassed himself and the Cronulla club and he'll have to pay the price
    It's fine, I'm sure he'll survive without the 30k

    If he made a real Ricky Stuart of himself in the presser he wouldn't have a fine

    Agree mate, we lost the gone due to ordinary play, with a bit of help from the refs.

    That is not my point...
