    100% though I would take an experienced coach woth Gus backing off to just handle recruiting and admin stuff.

    The secret lunch with Ivan was a joke.

    You know his son plays for the club and he's best mates with a board member right? A lot of meetings will happen.

    Yeah, but not clandestine job offers behind his current employers back. Some dignity and restraint would have been nice.

    Young Cleary is for sure the cats meow, he’s the new and even better than the young psychopath Matty Moylan, but he’s not worth a whole club is he?!

    Surely Manly would be all over him, given his success with us and the Broncos?

    @martielang why no Griffdawg hype for the Manly job?

    Lol imagine how badly Griffo would bomb with a club who doesn't have the top juniors in the league.

    Because Manly is clearly beneath him.

    Only someone desperate would go there. It is perfect for a young coach

    does this lack of interest in Griffin prove that NRL fans/media were more about attacking Gus/Penrith rather than backing up Griffin/ he was harshly done blah blah blah...

    there's multiple HC roles being reported as up for grabs, yet we haven't seen his name mentioned....

    ^This.

    I think Gus will be vindicated if Griffin doesn't end up in a head coaching role.......and rightly so!

    The way he dealt with it, would have turned off many.

    The interview hanging shyte on Penrith was very poor form, this alone will have potential employers very reluctant to hire.

    Dug his own grave, sooking like a teenager.

    It would appear it was a Gus thing. How many of the people that were complimentary of how Hook was on his appearance on NRL 360 and how he was hard done by given that Penrith were in the top 4 when he was sacked would actually want him at their club as head coach?

    Maybe he should go to Manly. Maybe they need some old school love. And with the apparent lack of staffing resources there, he can truly do it all himself because there will be no one to offer assistance.

    There is far better coaches also without a club. Far worse coaches still employed... I don't think you can read much into these things. Though imo younger coaches are all rage atm. I can't see him, Des or even Neil Henry getting another job as head coach

    This seems to be the way top go now. Robinson and more recently Siebold have shown that they can be successful, even in their first year of coaching. As long as the have the right support network around them. This is also why I think Ciraldo can do well for us.

    Broncs coach apparently is going to be their assistant. They have all the money and chose a rookie. So that seems to be the mindset

    They couldn't afford to provide decent facilities or support for Barrett. They are never going to afford Griffin, who I'm sure would give them the same response as Maguire and Taylor. Hoss is going to get the job simply because no-one else wants it.
