    Looks to me like Hook doesn’t want someone that could threaten his top job.

    Tony Guilfoyle has been named as head of high performance...apparently worked with Griffin at broncos and Penrith.

    Gentle is good, he seems to have turned the broncos around somewhat now

    I thinks it’s good - you would hope they have some contacts and scouts in Queensland to supplement our own juniors...can only hope I guess

    Gentle made it very clear that he does not want to be a Head Coch - told Fox NRL he is a real coach meaning an Assistant.

    Well can't get away from the "Old Boys Club" thing can we but I am comfortable with this one if it happens.
    You see Peter Gentle was a St George halback 1987/88 unfortunately was involved in an accident where Geoff Selby died he was injured as was another player Shaun O'Bryan. Geoff was a star of the future unfortunately for him, his family, friends Peter Gentle and St George life was cut short.
    Yes Peter should return he might be ok.

    Geoff, Pete and Shaun were very good players coming through. Geoff played firsts and was a very good player, it was sad with the MVA. Certainly changed the club even then, with Pete coming back is fine a good coach:thumbsup:Let’s hope that this creates a stable environment for everyone at the club

    I didn’t know that Peter was involved in this very tragic incident.

    Yes I never knew Geoff at all but I was impressed so much so I planted a tree with a friend of mine in recognition. I see you carve

    I would have paid money to see Dirty Harry front Mary at a presser, tap him on the chest and say the immortal line " A man's got to know his limitations"- and then add -"just resign".

    Geoff was a good guy always had a smile he could have been anything in the game and in life but life takes us on different directions. That was a kind thought with a planting of the tree.:thumbsup:

    It might be good if Peter came back he would not be a threat to Griffin coaching Broncos plus a halfback. We still keep Head and Talau.
    Would Mat Cooper be welcome back as a trainer.

    From the web.

    A lady driver was driving three of the lads home in a Datsun very early morning and swerved to miss a cat.

    The vehicle collides with a tree and is smashed up along with its occupants.

    Old mate was in the passenger seat, these cars were pretty tinny and lacked even basis safety features, he didn’t stand a chance.

    I can’t read it properly but he’d been unlikely to have known much about it.

    There’s an award named after him in the honourable sgi tradition, I think Florence and JDB won it. The hard cores would know.

    One of these rare and freak deaths of a young bloke, not his fault. It’s really f**ked.

    Albert was inconsolable apparently.

    She wouldn’t have been the first driver to swerve to save an animal. Happens in the country quite a bit.

    Hopefully gentle in name only, this bunch need three at once with no lube.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he goes with Kearney, they worked together at Brisbane.

    I believe Griffin is conducting interviews for the assistant role this week.

    Candidates are varied both in their abilities and desires to be, or once again be, a head coach.

    Candidates - Henry, Brennan, Gentle, Georgallis, Cartwright.
    Of these, I think, Henry, Brennan and Cartwright, may still hold head coaching ambitions, whereas Gentle and Georgallis most probably dont.

    Hook has a 2yr deal (club option for a 3rd I believe) and would be looking to extend that, so stability is a must for him, plus someone he can trust to not be white-anted. I think he knows already that this is his last shot to establish himself as a 'long term' coach.

    If Gentle gets the nod, then I'd also be looking at Geoegallis as the CC coach. I'm not sure where Matt Head fits in with this new coaching regime tbh.

    On a side note, if this was to transpire as such, we would have 4g's in our coaching ranks:
    Griffin - head coach
    Gentle - assistant coach
    Georgallis - CC coach
    Guilfoyle - head of performance

    Nice observation Dragonslayer. Maybe that is how things will pan out.
