I'm hearing they want it to go to an ex player. So far Woods is just in front of Bryce Gibbs.
Sometimes you think things can't get any crazier but the Wests Tigers will always find a way.
Benji Marshall backs Tim Sheens to make SHOCK return to coaching
It's domino effect, one bloke slackens off then someone else says why should I try my guts out when these merkins aren't , why should I should take the hard run when they wont etc etc etc.Good luck to whoever gets the WT coaching gig, they will need it..!
Regardless of the coach the players have to have one, some ability, desire, pride ,or hunger to succeed for the WT to be successful again.
This mob at the moment are a disgrace and more so the players who have signed elsewhere for the next year and yet have already clocked off for this season.
It's inching closer, isn't it?
Brooks backs Sheens but reveals frustration at club rumours
By Caden HelmersJuly 6, 2022 — 4.20pm
Luke Brooks has backed Tim Sheens to return to the helm of the Wests Tigers if the premiership-winning coach wants to take over, as the five-eighth spoke of frustration with club hierarchy.
The Tigers have put contract talks on hold while they search for a new coach as speculation mounts over the future of Brooks, who has held Adam Doueihi at bay to retain the No. 6 jersey for a clash with Parramatta at Leichhardt Oval on Saturday.
It comes after headlines claimed Brooks would be axed from the NRL side a fortnight ago, saying: “That’s what has frustrated me sometimes about what has happened at this club, a fair few stories get leaked out and it comes from people a lot higher than us. It’s just another thing”.
There is a sense a coach of Sheens’ standing, aged 71 with almost 40 years’ worth of coaching experience, would be able to cope with the pressure that comes with a role at the Tigers.
The Tigers’ head of football, who led the joint venture to the 2005 premiership, has emerged as a contender to return to the role for the 2023 season as club bosses prepare to interview candidates.
Interim coach Brett Kimmorley is among the candidates on a list including John Morris, Shane Flanagan and Kristian Woolf, who has been backed by Tigers lock Joe Ofahengaue.

“It’s up to [Sheens]. He’s obviously got the credentials, he has won a few grand finals at different clubs,” Brooks said.
“I didn’t get the chance to play under him, he actually left the year before I came. If he was to do it, he would definitely be capable of doing it. I know the boys who have been coached by him give him lots of wraps. If he was to do it, he’d be good.”
Advertisementinternational has a mutual option in his contract for next year which means he or the club could opt out of the final year of his deal.
Ofahengaue said Sheens would be “the right fit” for the Tigers, but added Tongan Test coach Woolf could be a perfect alternative.
“The reason why he is so successful with the Tongan team, is because we know if we stuff up, he is going to beat our arse,” Ofahengaue said of Woolf.
“He’s got that tough edge about him, but he’s also got that soft edge. He’s great to have a one-on-one conversation with. He’s a tough coach but really approachable. It would be cool to be coached by him in clubland. I think he would be [perfect for the Tigers], but it’s not my decision.”
agghh! stop. Your freaking me out man.Tim is now thinking, shit they all want me to coach, I can't let the boys down?
I think they hired Sheens, because none of them (the board) have any f**king idea about running a footy team, and now he has them where he wants them, eating out of his hand? They will wake up, just not sure how long that will be though?agghh! stop. Your freaking me out man.
Actually I'm freaking myself out. I had decided not to read posts or enter into discussion on the matter because I'm convinced it will only end in tears. I have full confidence in the Wests Tigers board to really screw this up and dig us into a deeper hole for many years to come.
We are damn good at f**king things up.....but.....I seriously doubt he'd take the job on. The big reason being....he is already in a much safer job with good pay. The drums appear to be beating but Sheens will make the right call on this one.Tigers are on fire!
Hire Sheens to run a footy team including a pathways program for talented players coming through the juniors. Get Noddy in on that because this might be our only hope for the future. Then after careful consideration think it might be best to ditch that decision. Make Noddy head coach. Realize that won't work pull Sheens away from pathways duties as well so he could teach Noddy how to be a first grade coach at a club that is in dire straights. This might only take a couple of years to reach the heights of mediocrity. Sheens will then be too busy to perform any of the duties he was originally hired for and pass the reins back to Pascoe.
Only the Tigers could come up with a plan that will finish us off from the juniors at one end right all the way though to first grade at the other.
I know at this stage a decision has not been made but it disturbs me that anyone is even thinking about it.
Yep, eannie, meanie, miny, mo ( excuse spelling)We are damn good at f**king things up.....but.....I seriously doubt he'd take the job on. The big reason being....he is already in a much safer job with good pay. The drums appear to be beating but Sheens will make the right call on this one.
