    Get a new head coach and allow them to give input into their own team. The effort to put in experienced assistant coaches doesn’t fix the problem of the head coach.

    Not Really, Not on Page 1, I think we need a fresh poll without Flanno.

    Matt Head should be up for consideration if it's a caretaker role till we find a proper replacement.

    Fitzgibbon will be the prime target w Griffth the fallback...i cant see Bennett returning not at 70yo....maybe as Football Director?

    If we have something like Gould overseeing the joint ok as long as he cannot be above the head coach. Someone who can organise our player development retention of existing and buying new players (as long as coach is involved) and make sure junior coaches are all working towards getting players up to NRL standards. All those things that let the head coach win games. Bennett may be the answer.

    Browny is the best of coaches not tied to any club. He left the team in good hands. He will get the best out of our juniors like he did when he was with Saints before. This squad is perfect for him know and I know he would have learnt heaps since he left.

    They saw the future with Brown... I wasn’t going to take them anywhere near premiership glory

    Browny had Newcastle firing early on the the players turned on him because they thought they were too good for him perfect example was Ponge sipping his milkshake when asked about Browny's departure. That wreaked of arrogance. Browny bought Ponga, Pearce etc to the club and turned the club with astute purchases in the transfer market. He fixed the mess Bennett left behind to make them a top 8 side until they started tanking.

    Brownie did what Brownie does best...develop, identify juniors, talent etc and hats off to him
    But if you believe they parted company only due to player power of a few
    If would of likely been majority and Brownie just might be another one of those coaches that cant turn a team into a premiership threat...and Newcastle saw that
    He had a good bunch of players in the mid 00's and did not deliver either
    He might be another one of those mate coaches...as he has that persona about him...good knockabout larrikan to have a beer with..but to win a comp and stay real competetive you need something more.
    I suppose he can prove all that wrong if someone else breaks the bank to sign him...but dont see it yet

    I wonder if Ryles would be interested in coming on a cheap rate? He has been in Melbourne for a while and seems to fit in the criteria of Saints coaches. Ex-player that is. I would suss him out for sure.

    Saints are idiots for not going for Madge Maguire when he was available. He would have been ideal. I think Tigers will be the big improves this year. Benji is looking the goods again like he did last year.
