It was obvious he could coach. He coached Illawarra Cutters to the premiership in his only season there, picking up NSW premiership coach of the yr. Won a premiership as an assistant with Cowboys, a QLD cup premiership and two minor premierships as coach of Northern Pride. These things alone were more than Mary had ever achieved with a similar length coaching career, but somehow Mary had a first grade gig. All the assistant coaches we have taken a punt on as first grade coach over the past 10-12 yrs and we let this guy leave. Obviously didn't bleed red and white enough, those in charge don't have a clue.
