I suspect he never wants assistants that are a threat to his job. Can you see any of his current assistants ever getting a head coaching gig anywhere or have the ambition to?
The interesting thing about those seven coaches is that six of them have been highly successful.Have a look at the top 6 sides. Id argue the next best side is Canberra. What do you notice?
Bellamy,Des,Cleary,BA,Ricky,Robinson,Bennett. All long term coaches and most been there for a while.
Have a look at every other sides coach. Bar Madge who hasn't been there long they are all inexperienced.
So the 7 best sides in the comp have the 7 longest serving/experienced coaches.
Re: the loan system
watch the Roosters sign Payne Haas, Kotoni Staggs and Reece Walsh for the finals.
What the NRL are looking at it an in-house transfer system for the remainder of the season. It wouldn’t include finals and the grand final.
I've been attempting to get cap relief for some time now.^^^
For example, Penrith have ample winger cover for To’o and can’t call on another player to replace the Blues star. The loaning club can recall their player at any stage, but there is conjecture over whether players can be loaned for two or three weeks at a time. Players cannot play in the NRL finals. Clubs who release players for a few weeks are entitled to cap relief.
