    I'm sure Mimis is Gus Gould's manager as well.

    If you could get a consensus from BJ/Board that they would move immediately to relieve McGregor of his duties if the appropriate funds are raised, i'm in and i will pay your share as well mickey.

    Mate I will throw in $500.00

    I hate the guy he is someone who is only after saving his own arse without a care for the club.

    If he was the person everyone other fool in the media say he is he should just walk away.

    Set up the account inform the club. Let’s see how they take to that.

    Sorry boys, but I wouldn’t pay one cent.

    Any payout should be deducted from the Boards severance pay when they’re sacked.

    From the Mole:-

    English coach eyes Dragons


    The man with the best coaching record in England has put his hand up to save St George Illawarra.

    The Dragons are poised to hold a review headed by former Blues coach Phil Gould that may well decide the fate of embattled coach Paul McGregor.

    But former Wigan coach Shaun Wane has jumped the gun, hiring an Australian agent and declaring himself ready, willing and able to take over the coaching job at the Big Red V.


    Wane has a great reputation in England since taking over the reins at Wigan from current Wests Tigers coach Michael Maguire in 2012.

    He won one minor premiership, one Challenge Cup, three grand finals and one World Club Challenge.


    He walked away from the club last year for a break and is currently doing some part time work with Scotland Rugby Union.

    Wane has signed up with one of the most powerful management groups in Australian rugby league - SFX - which already has several NRL coaches on its books.

    The group is believed to have made an informal approach to the Dragons telling them that Wane is keen to take on the coaching job at the Big Red V.

    So, does this mean ..............

    The Wane in Spain ( or England for that matter )
    runs mainly down the tarmac drain,
    to the SFX plane,
    to rid us of the McGregor shame,
    to help keep us Dragons fans sane.

    Well the surprises just won’t stop with our mob , just when you thought it was safe to go back onto a footy field again . . .

    Apparently the big- wigs that control the purse strings are going to lash out ( with the money they have saved from Mary’s payout ) and sign this athlete to bulk up our back line - he looks a real goer !

    If he lies horizontal, we'll cut our defence margin at least 50%!

    Didn't BJ come out as say the club had to money to pay out the coach and we were all delusional because there was no suitable replacement.

    Well, one of those problems seems to be now solved.

    It's time for the club to show how much they are "hurting" with the unexpectable results of coming second last and do the right thing for once however, I can't see it happening even with 2 men and their dog watching the team this year.

    Agreed but Sio is not the answer pretty average player and by no means a great goal kicker. One can only assume Lomax will be filling both of those roles next season.
