    Last time I checked, the result of specific games through the year is actually (very) relevant to the amount of games won.

    If we are dead serious Lang should’ve got us over the line years ago.
    He had the team and apart from the super league half a comp he pretty much failed.

    Flanagan has been our best coach ever.
    Got us from last to winning a premiership.
    You can bring up the peptide thing which makes his success even more phenomenal.
    He built the team to win.
    He got blokes whose careers were almost all but done and turned back into world beaters.

    Bennett is 70 odd. But he sustained quality for a long long time.

    No. The peptide thing puts an asterix next to his name forever. That was a disgrace and he was lucky he even had a job after nearly killing the club.

    Sorry Differ, I understand you are totally NEW to this forum & wouldn’t possibly have known about this but it’s a sacred topic!

    No other coach has ever been blessed with the squads that Bennett has. Fair enough he managed to unchoke the dragons for a year (without having to beat Bellamy) but a turnip could have jagged a few premierships with the leg ups he got at the broncs.

    f**king aye, forget barba+bird the reason we won the dam thing was because of Ennis, we haven’t seen a f**king short grubber from dummy half, a try scored from a crash ball a f**king good kick from dummy half or a f**king scoot at the appropriate time since he left.

    We need a f**king hooker, a good one I hope the younger Brails is better then this one, Jayden has us all scream for seg ffs, FTR I think Jayden can make it but he needs to atleast start throwing a grubber in.

    That’s the biggest difference from our premiership year not barba not jimmy Michael f**king ennis he created everything he was the reason barba looked so good the reason chad looked slightly above average.


    Oh yeah.... flanno give him another 3 no one is going to be better then him on the market end of story, used to hate him but he is a mastermind compared to Mary, Arthur etc.

    Got to agree. We need more from Brailey out of dummy half close to our line. What happened to the short ball to Lewis barge over play? It was pretty successful. Or a grubber for Lewis or Fifita? Most of the time the fullback is in the line. It’s not rocket science.

    As for Flano. As frustrating as he can be, there’s no one better, plus he loves the place and has done a good job. Will deserve an upgrade providing we go ok this year.

    Flanno has done a great job, we won the title with him, we continue to make the 8.

    We are a team no one likes to play, everyone knows we play 80, we never give teams a soft game.

    Our depth has been great with titles at Junior level and Newtown as well.

    We dont need to pay overs to get players here anymore, when players get called up they do there job.

    Flanno has built a culture where players want to play at

    Re Bennett and coaching. The Creepin Jesus has a support staff of thousands wherever he goes. Have youse seen how many "supports" he has in the coaches box during the actual game. (compare that to the Nos beside Phlennough) ..... Then throw in the Donks permanent player No19. You know that little baldy bloke that usually wears a blue shirt and runs 10 metres behind the Donks D line and their line of attack. I think the players name is Alf. He is always good for the full 70.

    Love it when the camera is in the Donks shed at halftime and there are more "support" hovering around than players.

    It's a farr-can joke really.

    Fharrkkkk I hate em.
