SLWord is out that the board has asked Hook to reapply. They are going to interview other candidates (apparently Ryles is their first choice - used to play for us - now assistant at Melbourne). The way this usually plays is in the next few weeks Hook will be probably be negotiting to leave early and get paid off. Based on this development, I see the team struggling this season.
The board should have kept this until round 10 to see if the team is a chance to play finals!
Thinking they may have pressed the panic button as Bellamy is looking more and more likely to be moving on next year from the Storm , and Ryles would be one of their main targets .
A few other Clubs will also be looking at their Coaching situations esp Knights.
Yep probably wheels in motion earlier than expected to most but not unexpected
Wondering if player power , current and future , also had a major bearing on this decision
If player managers have repeatedly told the Club that the current Coach was a deciding factor in their star player going elsewhere , they may have little choice but to act..
Interesting times ahead
