    You guys won yesterday. I’m thinking it’s an extension for Barrett. You gotta lock that man down.

    Des isn't a bad shout imo if they can convince him to have an 8 week stint.

    He can certainly motivate a side and as long as you didn't put him near the recruitment I reckon he could one shot a premiership tilt.

    Wow. Gus and his ego, eh?

    I mean, I reckon Griffin is an ordinary coach and all....but four weeks from the finals? I just can't see how that improves their chances at all.

    This is one of the most basket case moves I’ve ever seen from a club

    QFT.

    Bad timing though. Not sure we can have any shot at winning another game this year. Surely not all players will be happy with this.

    This is a little unexpected.

    Can’t remember that ever happening before - coach sacked from a side that’s going to make the finals

    The Tampon is laughing this week, while poor Super Coach Sticky is singing,
    How do you solve a problem like Leilua?
    How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?
    How do you find a word that means Leilua?
    A flibbertijibbet! A will-o'-the wisp! A clown!

    The heading on the NRL's website is a bit mis-leading (article in question - https://www.nrl.com/news/2018/08/06...h-anthony-griffin-four-weeks-out-from-finals/) as it says -

    So it means he's gone at the end of the season, not straight away.

    Not just finals they have a legitimate shot at top 4, and from there anything can happen.

    You’d think we were languishing at the bottom of the table after years of failure given the departure.

    I’d want an explanation but I know Gus won’t give us one.

    Four weeks from the finals. Wow.

    Ciraldo could be our coach. I’m f**king cheering. Clubs go well with coaches without any tangible experience. Why should I worry.

    f**king Gus and his ego. If I had Twitter I’d call that merkin our. f**king toss.
