    Thats correct mate and last nite on nrl360 he was sprouting off about Gould kept saying that Bennett wouldnt be at The Donkeys next year....but I think he was trying to make everybody believe he was going to The Panthers...At times hes full of it

    If true, then I hope that Bennett can persuade Pangai Junior to come with him.

    Our club is a shambles.. but if the panthers take back Cleary that’s actually quite embarrassing. Imagine sacking a coach then taking him back 1-2 years later (under the same management).

    Interestingly enough, cleary’s win percentage is less than Mcgregors.

    If we got Bennett - I do believe we’d pick up a premiership. As much as im annoyed at the state he left our club I do believe he could have the magic touch.

    So Griffen had lost the Panther's dressing room.

    Word is that Panther's new coach will be someone who can restore player trust.

    Clearly one whose appointment will reassure each 1st grade player job security, allow them to play any way they want, and regardless of week-in/ week-out effort, competence, contribution, and form.

    Precisely what McGregor brings to the table... don't be surprised if he's headhunted for the job!

    Pray to god you are right, it is probably the only way McGenius will leave

    Didn’t Gus have a hand in his sacking?
    Seems to be a big fu to him if the board bring him back.

    nrl.com reports that Penrith have verbally offered Cleary a four year deal from next year. Tigers management saying they won't release him. Might keep the lawers busy for a few years.

    I will never understand offering a four year deal to a coach that you sacked 2 years ago?

    It would be like us offering Steve Price a deal to return to the Dragons............jeez, I hope Doust doesn’t read this forum, I’d hate to give him ideas.

    Kent in his blog yesterday was making strong suggestions re St G and Bennett.
    Last night on NRL360 he had Bennett and Sebolt swapping clubs. So much of it is made up.
    I do think Cleary will return to Penrith. Tigers compensated. Also there are a few ex first grade coaches available. Not that the Dragons will get one sadly.

    These people are paid to make comments, you can’t hold it against them for saying the first thing that pops into their head

    Listening to Griffin now on 360, he is speaking quite well and talks a lot about bringing players through, building from within, turning kids into NRL players, letting them play and not holding them back.
    He's speaking our language and says all the things we want to hear.

    Gould is a 1st class arsehole & a compete narcissist
    Heaven forbid that we ever end up with him at our club
    Somehow he thinks of himself as a god of the NRL and people believe it
    Beware the ides of March big Julie
