    Not giving Mann a run is unforgiveable on many levels

    With warriors, tigers and manly to come in a little nervous we could be 5-1. Don't get me wrong, I would love that result early in the season but so would Mary.

    We're winning because we've signed a good forward pack who are winning us games.

    It has nothing to do with McGregor's 'tactics', or any set pieces he's created. IIRC only try we've scored from a set piece is McCrone kicking to the other side of the ruck for a Widdop try.

    But we'll have a roughly 50% win rate at the end of the season, & we'll stagnate for a further 2 seasons.

    Exactly.
    The better sides as shown by the eels last week will be too solid for us if the forwards don't win the battle easily.Not taking anything away from the boys but really the panthers & sharks were certainly way off the pace against us.Unfortunately we are going to have to go through the season hoping for the opposition to be off their game as well as getting the 50/50 calls.


    PS
    I still want him sacked.

    My great fear is we jag a couple more wins and they re-sign McJetski for a further 2 years only to see us miss out on the 8 and finish bottom 4 this year. We do exactly the same next year but Mary will have wasted 5 years in charge.

    We need the BEST available coach next year and beyond.

    Who cares if he bleeds red & white or if he can close the "deal" by riding on a jetski.

    With a good coach we turn a bottom 4 side with a good forward pack into a top 8 team.

    It's that simple.

    Dragons predicted to finish 2nd last from sportsbet.

    I said they will surprise and do better. Beaten Penrith and Sharks. 2/3. Hope Mary is learning at his job and improving. I like the tough roster he is building. If somehow which I highly doubt use played finals then Hunt arriving next season and some of these young juniors coming thru it could be top 4.

    Lot of posts have said that Penrith and Cronulla were off their games. I don't agree they were beaten by a better team.

    This has been said pretty much any time we have beaten a team above us, for the last 3 years. It cannot be true in all cases.

    With wins over the Panthers and Sharks along with the reported imminent sacking of Jason Taylor, Mary would be feeling safer by the day.

    The Tigpies will take Cleary if they can (otherwise Todd Payton). End result, we'll hear from the Dragons that Mary is the best on offer.

    Hasler will be a Dog or a Sea Eagle for mine.

    Jason Taylor would be available (lmao).

    The stars are aligning in a way I'm not happy about.

    Crystal ball: We beat Warriors and Tigpies, McGregor gets extended and we go on a 4 game losing streak (Manly, Cowboys, Roosters, Storm).

    Took West Tigers 2 bad losses to sack their coach....harsh but decisive given they finished above us last season. Many are tipping Cleary to take over.
    Dragons have waited for 3 seasons to decide and by the time it comes to get a new coach, the cupboard will be bare. We had a chance to get both Neil Henry and Brad Arthur some seasons back but stuck with Price initially and then Mary...

    I believe its time for the dragons to either announce the coach for next year or hurry up and sign one so we can sign the players needed. I also think we should resign Packer so our pack has some a stability for the next few years.

    The way it's looking Mcgregor is staying on.. There doesn't seem to be any indication from club or players thT there any coach rumblings - in fact the players look happy!!
    I tell you we win another 2-3 games and the club will announce a 2 year extension for Mcgregor.. And I'm sure it would suit MillwArd to the ground as he controls the clubs recruitment ..(Job for the Boys)

    Mick I hope your wrong the team needs a new coach , one that has got the ability to bring through our junior talent and can make the big calls in letting the older players go. Lafai Nightingale and McCrone all need to be taped on the shoulder.
