    Just been on another forum and there is an Article from Phil Rothfield from the Telegraph that suggests that Jason Taylor will be sacked in the next 24 hours, apparently the big 4 won't re-sign unless there's a new coach in 2018.

    Yeh its all over social media.

    I'd probably be happier with Cleary at this stage, someone from completely outside the club and to come into effect immediately

    If we sign Payten I'm done, it will mean the board has learnt nothing. Bending over backwards to appease the players is one of the reasons we are in this mess. Cleary or Toovey is the only way to go. The board should go to Hasler on two knees with an open cheque book & give him complete control. It wont happen though, no decent coach will come within cooee of this basket case.

    Has success at every club he has ever coached. Exactly what club needs in the short term to clean out to 10+ reserve graders masquerading as first graders.

    If Payten is to become coach then Smith is perfect in the interim.

    As much as we don't wanna see it I reckon Payton has pretty much got the job

    Smith at least has a track record of putting a broom through a place

    Smith would be sensational for a year, he can rebuild a club. He wont take crap from the "big 4" and they could possibly be looking elsewhere if they tried something. Please not payton, that would be a disaster imo, it has to be cleary, toovy or hasler

    Brian Smith is exactly what you blokes need. He'd come in with no agenda and sort the wheat from the chaff. This Big 4 Bullshit needs to end. Personally I would be letting Brooks and Woods go. Moses is 50/50, I'd give him benefit of the doubt and hold on to him and Tedesco. Nathan Davis returned to Wenty last week from the Titans, Tigers should take a punt on a guy like him, guys like Naiqama shouldn't be walk up starts to an NRL side. You should enquire about Peni Terepo, he's no world beater but he gives 110% every week, which is something lacking at Tiggerville and I dunno if he fits in to the 17 at he eels at the moment when he returns from suspension.

    initially thought the same re not wanting payten to get it but the more ive thought about it the more i reckon we just give it to him. its who the players want. tell them they can have their choice but if they dont put in immediently they can all fck off, every single one of them. time to put in or piss off. youve thrown your tantrums and got your way, now show us that youre worth it.

    If Tod Payten gets the gig may as well just bring back Tim Sheens...

    How good is this. Taylor has been a terrible coach. The next step is signing players to fair contracts based on their current ability.

    In all honesty, this season is a complete write off now barring miracle

    One step in the right direction but this decision probably should've been made last year after the raiders thumping at home for a spot in the 8!

    Not only that but even if a new coach comes in we will have to be patient for them to change the place may take them a season and a half to fix this lot. Not just players but the people in charge of recruitment.

    Hope the big 4 stay Tedasco, Noufaluma, Sue and Elijah. The rest can earn by atleast playing consistent. Woods can stay cos he can attract other good forwards to the club hopefully but the halves need consistency. Moses has potential but I think he plays better when Brooks isn't there and we have a halfback like a Townsend or Robson who just does a job of catch and pass and kick that's it. Last year's game against the Cowboys was a good example of how that worked with Littlejohn.
