    Well I certainly hope we aren't looking at Lafai for 2022.

    Tim Lafai...decent replacement for Jennings, tbh.

    Experienced, good defender, and a decent attacking player.

    I think I would rather we invest in our youth (plus, it would cost us less), but there is definitely merit in signing Lafai.

    Good to see that you've finally come out. Which one of you eats the cookies in bed and leaves crumbs everywhere?

    Sharks - Morris
    Tigers - McGuire
    Eels - BA
    Newcastle - rumours O'Brien could go south if angry pants re-signs
    Manly - doubt it, Des seems fairly unlikely to get the boot

    Many other teams have new coaches so rules them out
    Dogs
    Cowboys
    Dragons
    Titans
    Broncos
    Warriors

    Others successful or with probable replacements lined up
    Raiders
    Roosters - surely fitxgibbon takes over if robo leaves
    Souths
    Penrith
    Storm

    I could only see him back at the Sharks or at Parra if he was allowed to return early and was appointed to a club this year... But if BA has the team firing then it makes it very hard to bring Flanagan in. I get the feeling the Sharks would bring him back to the head coaching position no matter how good John Morris might have them going...

    you should click on it ... it contains a video of Dave Taylor looking like he has eaten 5 african villages, and all their surrounding villages too

    but the article says nothing useful about flanno - mentions sharks and eels but that both clubs say they don't want him - lol
