    Does anyone still want Bennet? Weeks ago a lot of people on here wanted him at the club. Perhaps he's past it.

    They over achieved I think. Look at their halves

    Apples and oranges though. Look at how many teams we have at the club. Compare that to Storm that only have an NRL team. It is dumb

    Well Shane Elford is coaching St Mary's while on our books. St Mary's staff costs will now increase as we send staff there to hide them off our cap

    Another good performace like Saturday next week and Ciraldo gets the gig imo. He’s had a baptism of fire and pulled us out of a horrific form slump under some pretty intense media scrutiny.

    How about we just keep the least experienced premiership winning coach in the history of rugby league?!

    That’s an interesting point, I can only hope they take that into account.

    Ciraldo learning from Bennett for a couple of years wouldn’t be a bad option.

    Its pretty messy right now.

    Gould is obviously very involved. Brandy too. And there are that many ex-players being cited at training. This won't be how it remains come round 1 2019.

    I don't really know just how much coaching Ciraldo is actually doing.

    Gus said it perfectly in his podcast. The NRL doesn't care about us. Broncs, Storm, Roosters etc don't have such issues so it won't be raised.

    Thinking a couple of years down the track never seems to work out.

    I don't know how much he can do. He's incredibly young as a coach.

    I'm warming to Ciraldo as a permanent coach.

    Last weeks game showed he can actually coach at this level. Game plan was great, and perfectly executed.

    This week is a real litmus test though. A win would almost certainly secure his job next year.

    Only others I would consider at this stage is Cleary or Maguire. Bennett is losing the plot slowly but surely. At some stage he needs to realize that the game is past him

    Yeah I’m off Bennett, if not Cleary Id like to see us keep Ciro I think.

    I really just want a season free of drama... can’t see that happening! Hahahaha

    Neither can I. I think thanks to your mate Gus, both our clubs are in for 12 months or so of more drama.

    I popped in on training last week prior to the Warriors game and I must have gone on the wrong day because I only saw Ciraldo, Wallace and Jason Wrigley during the session. There were others but certainly not Gus, Brandy or Royce on the day I was there.

    Cleary catches up with Panthers chairman again

    The whispers about Ivan Cleary making an early exit from the Wests Tigers won't go away. And this photo of the Tigers coach talking to Penrith chairman Dave O'Neill in the corporate boxes of ANZ Stadium prior to the Panthers-Warriors elimination final only added fuel to the fire.


    If you look closely they weren't in the same box. O'Neill was in the NRL suite while Cleary was a guest of real estate giants Domain.

    Speaking of real estate, it's interesting to note Cleary's Leonay home, which it was claimed O'Neill was interested in buying and was the reason they met up two months ago, is no longer on the market. Let the conspiracies begin!

    If Clearys coming it will be wrapped up by December otherwise he’s not coming till after his contract. It won’t go on for twelve months. Things are settled at penrith for the most part, I daresay they already who will be our coach in 2019.
