I didn't realised they'd landed a half decent stadium there either... I think three sides are removable stands (?) but design looks like wouldn't be too much of drama to build as permanent stands, if a PNG team eventually escalates from Qld Cup to NRL standard.

Would be a shitter of an away trip for southern teams.

It was more wishful thinking, for Parra's sake...

I suspect they'll continue the tradition of seeking an ex-Blues player... or maybe a celebrity part-time cameo from someone like Cheika?

Good riddance.

At least freddy finally realised it was time to go.

Should have been 2 months ago.

Apparently was offered a part time role for 6 months. But wanted a fulltime role as he was helping with Juniors and Pathways.

I hope the NSWRL are not forgetting pathways....

Ricky stuart will get the gig imo. The Ricky mafia at the telegraph and Fox will push for it.

NSWRL will change the rule that a club coach can origin.

Then the question will be with Ricky's reputation where most NRL fans can't really cop him anymore. Will NSW fans really get behind the team. With a polarising figure like Ricky in charge.

Unlike in 2011-2012 where Ricky was unemployed got the job after being sacked by Cronulla but the hostility towards him wasn't as bad as NSW coach as it would be now imo.

Johns brothers, as joint coaches - includes the whole reconciliation journey story, which the media machines will push/lap up.

David Furner and Jim Dymock as assistants/forward coaches, maybe Paul McGregor gets a gig in there too.

haven't they had a falling out over the NSW origin side or maybe I'm naïve enough to fall for the publicity stunt?

They have/did indeed... but wouldn't it make for wonderful headlines to bring them together, all is forgiven style? And headlines is what Origin seems to be all about...
