Can we have Burton now pls
Glad to see you’re so excited BSE that you had to SHOUT it out
Seriously though under the circumstances it’s a good signing. It shows that the press don’t know sh*t with their comments last week that the club was going to conduct more interviews this week, although Young when asked on Fox about the situation said the club would make a decision early this week.
WELL ITS A START I GUESS , HOPE HE DOES WELL ......
Whos excited mate....my keyboard was stuck on the caps lock lol
If you have a spare 500k possibly
I’m feeling so bloody good now I might go hit the misses up for some action
How about 250 plus we’ll throw in Norman & Merrin
100% agree - after the last dismal years lets try and drag ourselves off the bottom and start heading up. If hook can start building a pathway with juniors then we can always upgrade the coach in 2 years when there is a suitable upgrade available . and like you said hook has done his job
BUT we have to rebuild and I reckon hook can get that done
A sensible appointment, probably the best coach available on the market. I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do with some of the young players coming through.
It’s a real positive that he’s worked with Young and they have a working relationship from Tonga. Griffin speaks highly of Young and vice versa. Its refreshing to know that they can just get cracking pretty much immediately, unlike the sh*t fight happening at the Dogs.
To the people expecting a top 8 side and massive recruitment drive next year, I think you’re misguided, if not delusional. Of course we will look to strengthen in some areas, but we shouldn’t be desperate and we shouldn’t sign players at the detriment of some of our younger guys.
There’s no chance of another side picking up Norman or either of the Sims boys for next year (Even if half the members of the forum think we can just release them), so Griffin needs patience - Hopefully over the next 2 years we can see a side that’s becoming a real force, even If it’s not straight away or even in his first season.
But let's not jerk the gherkin just yet.
If we make the top 4 next year, that's a positive start.
Anything less - sack the merkin
Great news! ...But what's his affiliation to the Dragons?
Merrin may not want to return last visit he arrived with a hot girlfriend and when he left he was solo.He May struggle to make our orange peeling team lol
Gregstar, do you need some time alone in the shower again.
Absolutely Wane over Griffin. Without a shadow of a doubt in my mind.
The only time this club has ever had any kind of success is when they have appointed outside the "St.George bubble". Let's hope the trend continues
Whilst he isn’t everyone’s cup of tea he is exactly what the dragons need.
If the SMH is continuously going to go on about his time at panthers take a hard look at all the players that may have had issues with him.
Cleary got rid of them all.
He is a hard arse but what I liked about him he gave the youngsters a go. Didn’t hook them the minute they dropped a ball. If you look at a game he coached against us in 2018 that panthers side had so many kids that today they are part of that panthers set up.
And Webby probably couldn’t believe Gould any longer when he told him that he never conducted a real Review of the dragons hence why you haven’t found anything of note I have said.
Let’s see the SMH and 9 journos dig deeper than his twitter account this week
Seems like a sensible choice.
has runs on the board and is an outsider.
thank god not another rookie coach
me thinks someone high up from St George has been reading this forum.
If someone high up is reading this post...please f**k NORMAN OFF RIGHT NOW!!!
Well said and I also agree.
This is a great first step and Onwards & Upwards for 2021 and beyond.
Yes Mickey Lane you were only a winger but your smart. Should have been a Corey Norman.
I would have gone for Wane as all others were not that exciting. But Fitzy well he appears to me as only a bald head does he have the smarts to be a Head Coach. I don't know?
But if you just watched NRL 360 there was a concerted effort by the media to smear his character. Unbelievable so I hope he does good. Then Blacklock was bought in by the media to dish the Dragons well that done me. Media crap. Go the Dragons.
