You are spot on in your summation of Griffin.
I agree in part re the fitness and junior set up, but Im not convinced our roster as it stands is finals material
BOUT f**king TIME
NOW LETS DO SOME BASHING
If memory serves me correctly he was coming 4th or 5th when he was sacked. If he was filthy he had reason to be
2yr contract is interesting the Board are hedging risk, I think that also indicates Deano will be staying to take over in
Tom pull your head in. He left Penrith in 2018 not 1978. Would you prefer we kept McGuber?
Good signing compared to Young And
Who's starting the David Furner appreciation thread?
Wane was my first choice but Griffin was a very close second and it’s absolute daylight to everyone else.
Hook’s got my support, all I’ve wanted is a coach that doesn’t want to be ‘one of the boys’ and if he’s anything, he’s that.
Dean.....you’re an adult mate, time to move out and go pay some rent .... and that goes double for you ‘Extras’ Millward.
Also 14 nil down every week until Moylan and the boys threw out whatever Griffin's gameplan was a just chucked the ball around.
None thank god
You’d think so. I believe I read and heard on radio around October/November last year that Young had offered to leave as he’d been approached by the Chooks to replace O’Brien but was knocked back about leaving before his contract expired and then ultimately signed a new one... I think.
Griffin speaks highly of him so you’d think he’d stick with him, considering Flanagan isn’t hanging around. Who knows, though.
The man had a hard act to follow when Bennett left the Broncos on the first occasion , yet he took his team to the end of season big games and will do the same with our Dragons .
Congratulations to him and I wish him well .
Also on a side note it would appear ‘ the ‘ St.George side of the J.V. got their way again - this is the second occasion recently ( 1st being Mary’s departure ) which could be another sign of better days ahead for the Big Red V and it’s many proud supporters.
Well said mate. I think he was the best choice considering who was available.
We needed someone to come in with no previous ties with the club and a keen eye for junior development.
Corey Parker gave him a huge wrap tonight and he spent some time with him at the Broncos so that’s good enough for me. I’m open to a fresh approach and I’m looking forward to see what the squad looks like in 2021.
It’ll be interesting to see if the slackers in our team finally aim up this weekend knowing Hook will be watching on.
Yep, it sure feels good to have a proper coach for the first time in a decade!
Very Well Said mate.
Ahh just like our fail mary.....except he regularly makes the finals
Out of who was available, Griffin was the unanimous choice.
His contract will be a lot different to Mary's in favour of the club and results driven. Our first outside coach recruit since Bennett and both coached the Broncos so hopefully will bring about success.
I think that he will do well - much more so than what we have had.
Now we have to wait and see who will be in the playing squad for 2021. Something to look forward to.
Please accept we don't have the cattle especially in the pigs.
