    I’ve been critical of Hook in the past, but he’s very good at getting a team fit and competitive. Hook for 2-3 years with a handover plan to another coach would be a decent outcome.

    Seeing what Des Hasler has done with a worse squad than Barrett had who in their right mind would recruit him?

    To be fair that post wasn't really based on sources and was more a post based on opinion. You haven't disproven anything quoting that post.

    Paul Kent made an interesting comment about Des Hasler. He suggested Hasler is a coach who operates better on less is more. Hasler at the Bulldogs have the latest up to date technology and huge amount staff and Hasler found it too much. Hasler goes to Manly where he doesn't all latest technology and but its enough for him to operate and keep it simple which works better for Hasler.

    It won't be happening mid-year. The latest I read it won't happen before the deadline. 2020 is still a possibility though.

    I’ve made the comment a few times (when dumbass dragons fans say dumbass stuff like ‘Hasler is past it, I’d rather stick with McGregor’...f**king idiots) that Hasler is a brilliant coach and that’s it. When he was at Manly in his first stint, Bob Fulton did most of the footy and roster management, allowing Hasler to coach the team. And it worked. When he stepped into the Dogs, the roster was ready made for him, and he was instantly successful. However over the following years he took on more and more responsibilities like recruitment, roster management, and so on, and he f**ked it.

    Back at Manly, he is focusing on coaching footy again and is showing he is damn good at it.

    Manly have all the up to date tech, it’s lawn chairs and tables we desperately need.
    Gardens are great though

    The Australian is reporting the QRL are considering bringing back Wayne Bennett for the Maroons coaching job because of the potential departure of Kevin Walters. There is a view Walters will likely depart from the job after this series if he secures the Titans coaching position which he is reported the front runner if Garth Brennan gets the boot which is looking increasingly likely. The other names thrown around for the job are St Helens coach Justin Holbrook, and Roosters assistants Craig Fitzgibbon and Adam O'Brien.

    I really can't see Titans going for an upcoming assistant again. I know commentators were championing Brennan for the Titans vacancy after Neil Henry's departure.

    It's a bit concerning for Queensland the lack of coaches available in the ranks for the QLD job. After Bennett a couple former players names were thrown around with limited coaching experience and Paul Green which the article acknowledges is not a realistic option because Green won't be allowed to accept the QLD coaching position from his club.

    So they recognise that Green is not a realistic option due to coaching an NRL team, but their front runner is Wayne Bennet.

    They really do breed them special up there...

    Green is not a realistic option due to being an uppity little midget.

    Green is not a realistic option because the Cowboys will not let him coach the State side whilst he is the cowboys coach.

    I thought that was already a done deal?

    Or was it a ‘done deal’? As in everyone knows but hasn’t been confirmed?

    Yeah one of those "everybody knew it but no official announcement" type things for the last couple of months. Same thing as when Raiders got Bateman off Wigan.
