    Tigers are looking to lock in Bennett, if that is unsuccessful probably Maguire.

    As soon as that happens we will announce Cleary.

    Just waiting for that first domino to fall.

    Bennett for now or Bennett for 2020? Didn't the guy tell Broncos players he's staying for 2019?

    All will be revealed very soon, and I am not talking about the last question of your post.
    As Daz said just waiting for the Tigers to make a decision. Could happen this week.

    One thing for sure Ivan's done at the Tigers.

    Thanks Daz. For the first time in like forever, there doesn't appear to be panic stations from Panther faithful. This shows how much the club has grown as a body and as a sporting francise. We are now playing with the big boys.

    I love it.

    I believe that is what the Tigers want. If not, they may have to put someone like Todd Payten in charge for a season.

    Is Bennett preferred than Mage or are there tensions with Wests Ashfield wanting Mage and they hold the bulk of their spending money ?

    If we want to play with the big boys, why steal a coach with a win percentage of 50%, 44.9% and 41.9% at his past three clubs who can't coach attack from a team that hasn't made the finals in 7 years?

    Useless statistics, he was coach at the Warriors and took them to a Grand Final, after he left the Warriors failed to make the Finals for 7 years, Coached Penrith who just started a massive rebuild and took us to within a game of a grand final with a team full of injuries constantly, since he left we haven't got that far and our team is a lot stronger now, and he was just coaching the tigers another club going through a re-build, what's to say if he wasn't coaching a club like Melbourne or Roosters that his win percentage wouldn't be higher? Cleary seems to get the most out of what he has, why can't he do even more with our current crop of players?

    Ivan is probably the most hated person in wt at the moment.

    This is due to his clandestine discussions through his agent with you lot.

    I’d say he will arrive in a few weeks.

    I hope he has time for the non-related amongst the squad.

    Because he can’t coach attack and can’t spot a good/shit fullback or hooker until injury forces him into trying something different and because if he was so good at taking teams to another level, we probably should have kept him when we had him in the first place.

    The win percentage isn’t an accurate reflection of his coaching due to the rebuilds he’s had to do, but one thing is for certain. He can’t coach attack.

    We’re either going to need an assistant to do the attacking plays or rely on individual brilliance.

    He’s a veritable dud and was only dragged in to secure the young immortal.

    But given his imminent arrival, I’d be getting Jason Taylor in to the attack training.

    Corey saw the light and preferred no coach at all to ivan.

    I agree, hopefully Ciraldo can handle the attacking plays it only took him a few games to improve us in attack a fair bit, a full pre-season with Ciraldo not being ignored by the head coach could do wonders for us.

    All we need is a competent coach.

    Cleary is more than competent.
