    Jimmy I'd rather a rookie from a coaching system whom has achieved success & is responsible for a Defensive Wall, than have to put up with Another 2 years of the Deflective Experienced Peanut.
    All NRL coaches were Rookies once, it's just up to a club to identify the right one based on their career development not just a Friggin Old Boy that can drink and paint.

    I don't see Flanno coming to us. In fact no-one with any sense would be an assistant to Macgregor. Look at Head and Demetriou. You get no credit for your own success. You get shafted for the Head coaches lack of success. It's a lose-lose situation.

    It would also serve the purpose of humiliating McGregor to the extent he may resign !

    Flanno should come in as "Assistant" and Mary can still imitate I mean be the "Head coach".

    If the Dragons hierarchy do not sign up Shane Flannagan immediately, they are complete psychos, this is not going to be a better opportunity than right now to set the club up for next several years ahead. I will even go as far to say, that the Dragons can win the comp with Shane as assistant. McGregor can sail into sunset as a winner thx to Flanno's experience.

    So I'd go for Brown as head coach on a two year deal with Flanno as his assistant. Between Brown and Flanno, we chould address the coaching situation we now face.

    My question is, if Shane Flanagan is ever made the Dragons coach, will anyone learn to spell his name correctly?

    Just a small grammatical point. You cannot use the words "McGregor" and "winner" in the same sentence.

    McGregor is not a winner and never will be.

    I think the appointment of the next assistant coach will be the clubs most important decision in the past 20 years... it's important that the next assistant coach has the ability to slot into the main role if Mcgregor fails in the first 2 months and his position becomes untenable...I think that then rules out Flanagan...it could be anyone out of :
    Brown
    Furner
    Griffin (yes Griffin)

    Fantastic idea,
    I agree possm as long as brown knows it's 2 years for him and flannagan to take over. I can actually see these 2 working together as a formidable combo.

    Brown is most likely fit.
    Griffin is an experienced head coach and assistant won't work with the current
    boys club.

    Realistically McGregor will not be Sacked immediately, he will see out the 2020 season and highly likely see out 2021, the Dragons Hierarchy love Paul(Illawarra Boy).
    So Shane Flannagan is the key player for them saving face for all concerned at Dragons HQ!

    Every one happy, Mary knows, one slip up.

    McGregor has shown over the last 6 years how to survive, unless Flanagan decide to be assistance for another club, McGregor will manage to survive the next two seasons, making way for Flanno to take over.

    Whoever we get, to win the premiership these days you have to do something different. Whether its salary cap manipulation (Roosters), Wrestling tactics (storm), or Peptides (Sharks) you have to bring something new to the table, not just repeat the same old tactics of yesteryear. That's why I reckon the Raiders are a shot this year with their innovative use of Pommie players and their one on one strip thing.

    McGregor unfortunately has nothing. Just a repeat of Steelers tactics from 1991.

    Fail Mary is a cunning as a sh*thouse rat I'll give him that. He'll be undermining Flanno from day one knowing that the board will have zero compunction is giving the arse to another assistant.

    Cmon man, can't you see he used a bit of the Steelers 1992 tactics as well. Geez, give the man some credit. Those 14 hour days he spends is not just on implementing the 1991 tactics.
