    I'm still waiting for Doust to respond to my email that I sent last year applying for the Head Coach role.

    What about Roy Masters!
    Always turns up in the members to the Anzac match with his red and white gear on.
    I have a great photo of both of us from last year's game.

    Slapping is banned now, that might affect his warm up before the game

    I don't really know however, I'm confident Mary will not be our head coach in 2018.

    Hard to sack him if he keeps winning.

    I'd say the deal has already been done. Millward's and Doust's recent words indicate to me that Mary is on the way out.

    I can't get my head around this. Let's say for the conversation that Paker and Dugan resign. That means that four internationals, Widdop, Packer, Hunt and Dugan have all signed/resigned and none of the above, nor anyone in the club from the CEO to the ball boy know who is coaching the team next year. YEAH RIGHT. Donnie Trump has no idea where North Korea is either

    I think there is no deal at present. My guess is that McGregor was given an ultimatum at the start of season that his future will be determined upon the teams performance this year. Hence the focus on 2017 and IF, as he states many times, he will be the coach in 2018, it will be based on his results this year.
    So far he's ticked the box, but it's a long season.
    There wouldn't be, as you call it, a top line coach available next year (I know you will say Maguire, but that would place the Rabbits in the same position as us, no "top line" coach, so I think they won't sack him TBH), so that leaves us with rookies such as JD (who I doubt would uproot his family again and he is anointed as the next Broncos HC) and Walters. Unless they look to the ESL, but no-one you would call "Top-Line" or ready to coach at NRL level, unless you are looking at Toovey who I don't see as a fit for our team. Tony Smith and co have also indicated they do not wish to return to Australia.

    I have posted this in the articles section. Certainly shows Paul McGregor in a new light. I wish his mum a speedy recovery and maybe we should all (myself included ) cut Mary some slack. Its difficult when you have to go through family struggles with illness. I hope we can beat the Roosters for Mary's mum and also for Mary so that they both have something to smile about.

    Normally I'd say you can't write this stuff. But, here we are.

    If we keep playing like we have been it'll by Mary and fair enough too. The only other coach who's started as well this season is Bellamy. Let's just wait until the season's mostly over before we make any decision.

    And if anyone thinks Kevin Walters would be any better, get yourself a beverage of your choice, sit down in front of a game on Fox and listen to that dribbler stumble through his confused "analysis" of just about anything that's happening on the field or off. I didn't realise English was his second language but I guess he is from Queensland after all.
