    I'll go out on a limb and say this season we wont see any sackings. You'd have to think Arthur, McGregor and Brown are on borrowed time if they have bad years this year.

    I don’t think Brown will be anywhere near that list.

    As for the rest, they deserve to be taken out back like old Yeller

    How is Brown on borrowed time?

    Hes got a very handy squad of players, he wont be gone this year but if Knights finish near bottom the Wests group wont want to see their investment and squad building go to waste. Hence why i think he has this year and some of next to produce or he wont be there by the end of 2020 imo.

    His #7 might be meditating in Thailand again soon. We'll see how Ponga goes with 2nd year syndrome.

    If they have another poor season there will absolutely be question marks over him.

    Just can’t see it happening 2 years in a row with a roster as good as theirs though.

    Question of the thread is who’s under fire for 2019 specifically, though.

    Hard to argue with the smart money being on Arthur.

    Brad Arthur for sure. Though, the more people talk up the Knights, the more I am worried for Nathan Brown if they are anything short of finals footy.

    It's still early in the year but this thread deserves a bump. Such a hotly contested field this year. Maybe one of those coloured guys (no racist)?

    Got to think that Paul Green will be feeling the heat right now. The Cowboys appear to be heading back towards their horrible pre-Thurston kinda form.

    They need some Jimmy the Jet in the backline. Not literally.

    Green and Brown both looking risky at this point. Also, is Seibold a colour?

    Kearney’s definitely coloured and he could be shaky, though if they keep putting in like yesterday he’ll probably be ok.

    As a previous post said, the Knights *may* just give Brown this season and some of next to prove he can get them climbing the ladder (when does his contract expire, anyway?). When he arrived they were at rock-bottom, and they're not getting thumped anymore. If they can just learn to close-out the tight games, they'll be a top-8 team again.

    Green on the other hand is a different case.. he's been successful with the Cowboys so he has a great (though JT-boosted) record, but is it time for new coaching post-JT? Sure injuries have contributed, but there's a smell about them that's distinctly "1990s Cowboys".

    Brown for some inexplicable reason was rated by members of the press and LU as a good coach.

    The results so show that he is far from that. I can't see him at the Knights in 2020.

    They had the game in the bag yesterday and should have beaten an out of form Souths. Green was a big loss, he probably closes out that game yesterday.

    I think Siebold is safe this year regardless of results. Brown and Green are both gone if they don't get a sniff of the top 8.
