Gould has lost the plot. Didn't he sack Cleary to get Hook only for Penrith to then get Cleary back? That worked out well for Gould. I think Cleary only went back because Gould was no longer in charge. How Gould gets any credit is beyond me when it comes to a team performing. In terms of bringing $$ to a club that may work ok but it just takes one disagreement and Gould throws his lollies and sooks like a baby. He seems like a difficult guy to work with. My way or the highway type of guy.

I might get blasted for this but Saints should really consider making a play from Flannagan next season. He is the only premiership winning coach around. He also has some pulling power in retention which from what we see Hook does not have any. Apart from him no other coach around unless maybe Wayne Bennett has some interest as he finishes this season but scared of the mess he will leave behind.

The roosters are trying to offload Taukeiaho ( possible super league)
He would be a good pick up especially when we missed Finuncane.
he was killing it last year and early this year.. one of the best props in the game
What has happened there?

Taukeioho would be the perfect replacement for Vaughn. One of the best front rowers in the game.

I doubt Roosters would release him to another NRL club though.

He is a quality player and we could certainly use him. Apparently he is on pretty big bucks at the Rorters, and would attract similar high pay in Super League. Not sure how much the Dragons could afford to pay, but worth an offer. Surely Taukeiaho would rather stay in sunny Oz than go to cold old England.
Roosters always sign players for unders.... but when one leaves they seem to free up so much cap space.
Then there is the tactic to talk up the value of their departing player so their competitors have to use more of their cap if they sign him up.
Noticed Bellamy has been doing this also, most recently with JAC, Hynes and Finucane.

Clever mongrels! And we fall for it!

In June 2021, George confirmed his interest in an NRL comeback with the St George Illawarra Dragons following life-changing hip surgery.
He's since signed a contract to play with the team until 2023, and revealed how he's been staying fit while in quarantine.

'The Dragons staff have kindly put together a structured program for my two weeks, including various movement/strength/aerobic sessions,' he told The Daily Telegraph on Friday.

Hooks criteria for signing players/staff for Dragons.

Hook - Queenslander, ex-Broncos coach
Matthew Elliott - Queenslander
Peter Gentle - ex-Broncos coach

Andrew McCullough - Queenslander, ex Broncos
Gerard Beale - Queenslander, signed from QLD cup
Jack Bird - ex Broncos
Josh McGuire - Queenslander, ex Broncos
Francis Molo - Queenslander, ex-Broncos
Jaydn SuÁ - Queenslander, ex-Broncos

Billy Burns, Poasa Faamausili, Daniel Alvaro are the three that don't fit the criteria. They were all likely signed for reserve grade though lets be honest.....
