    In all fairness, Don't know much about Agar. The Question is, why would he want to come and coach alongside Mary??? A few possible scenarios...he sees an opportunity for the 1st grade spot to open up...or maybe no other offers on the table.

    From the sounds if it, its more likely to be the latter. I didnt realise he was coach of France until recently so he has international coaching experience on his resume. Will be a come down for him to work with Mary. Maybe Millward knows him.

    Total insult to the coaching fraternity in Australia.
    Why do we need to import mediocre coaching brains trust from the UK?
    Absolute joke.

    Scenario 2. There were no offers for Mary and we re-signed him so that seems to be our MO.

    I read that Price is going to coach a team in the super league in England. That says a lot about coaching there

    Agar will probably take over Illawarra if they even play in the ISP next year.

    It's a very bizarre situation where we have:
    Bennett premiership winning coach replaced by waterboy assistant Price whom is sacked for former water boy & failed assistant coach McGreggor
    Price replaces ESL championship winning coach Tony Smith at Warrington who's assistant is Richard Agar. Agar moves to Dragons to be assistant to McJetski once Price is appointed.
    We are NOT moving forward, more going around in circles. Welcome to the Circle of Strife!

    The point is that we would we not look for some coaching smarts in Australia?
    My comment is no reflection on Agar or his ability.
    It's the principle that bothers me.
    Creating yet another crutch for McGregor in the hope that they tutor him up to FG standard.
    So we have a lame duck coach surrounded by assistants, advisors and consultants telling him what to do.
    No FG coach worth his salt would wear that.

    Ridiculous appointment/extension which is coming home to roost.
    Agar's appointment just another band aid.

    That is a very fair post. My questioning of this appointment really comes down to whether or not he will help take the club forward.
    On an individual level Agar doesn’t appear to have a strong coaching record so what does the club see in him to make this choice?? We saw with JD(a well credentialed assistant)that whatever he offered was enough to earn the ire of the club so I can only see the appointment of Agar as someone not likely to ruffle feathers nor harbour the ambition to take on the main role.
    As for Gidleys comments, I don’t place a lot of weight in them. After all not even the West’s Tigers players laid the boot into Taylor when he was punted despite the obvious division he caused at the club.

    Could it be that Agar is part of Hasler's coaching staff. Cleanout finally on it's way.
