    Flanagan coming from left field wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest at the moment. Just depends whether it could be maneuvered for next year or would have to wait to the following one. Didn’t Robinson mention something about a senior figure with a year to run on his contract?

    I'd be stoked with Flannigan. Though isn't he going to be Mary's replacement once they finally biff him?

    Was actually phoned and told he had the job one day, and the next day received a call saying they had changed their mind. Amazed he even applied again tbh after that treatment

    That’s the general thought, but the media are also saying that Fitzgibbon is holding out for the St George job. And despite all the talk of him being on shaky ground, Mary seems like Teflon at the moment. Wouldn’t surprise me if he was still there in 3 years.

    You mean the quote came from Iro?

    Is anyone else getting a whiff of Matt Elliott with this process? The best interviewee gets the job again but not necessarily the best person for the job.

    No, Iro may be the senior figure with one year left on his contract.

    My gut feel now is that they go with Payten or the Walkers for a year and if they don’t produce have a look at a Flanagan or Fitzgibbon

    Impossible to build anything in a year though with the tools they will be given

    Oh right. Gotcha. Sorry. :D It’s been an extra humid day today and it slows down my comprehension skills.

    Courier Mail reporting Walker bros are out of contention.

    New Zealand Warriors coach: Walker brothers overlooked for job
    The Warriors have informed Ben and Shane Walker they are out of the race to replace Steve Kearney — further opening the door for sacked Cowboys coach Paul Green to resurrect his career in New Zealand.

    News Corp can reveal the list of candidates for the Warriors coaching job is narrowing with the Walker brothers officially scrapped as options to coach the club next season.

    Warriors CEO Cameron George has advised the premiership-winning duo they were unsuccessful with their job interview.

    With former Manly mentor Geoff Toovey also out of the running, Warriors management are closing in on their next coach with the available Green now a frontline contender to oust Kearney’s caretaker Todd Payten.

    A media report a fortnight ago claimed the Walkers had clinched a one-year deal with the Warriors for 2021 but Shane confirmed they will not be launching their NRL careers with the Kiwi club.

    “We haven’t got the job,” Walker said.
    “It’s very disappointing, we thought we were right in the mix.

    “We had a job interview and we put forward our case, but I understand the reason why decisions are made and we have no angst or anger at all towards the Warriors’ management.

    Lol yup.

    This is going to be a very underwhelming appointment.

    Right now my gut says one of two outcomes.

    1) Stick with Payten

    2) An underwhelming out of the blue selection that hasn't even been mentioned yet.

    I would be happy to give Payten next year to prove himself. From what I've seen and heard, he's already a big improvement on SK.

    That will give us time to chase a proven coach when more are off contract, unless we snag someone like Green now.

    Only problem is, it doesn't help us attract better players.

    Worst case scenario would be that the club rushes to replace Payten when there are no proven coaches willing to fill the position, and we end up with years more of dud coaching.

    Wow, all we have is a list of coaches the Warriors don't want, and all seem to be better than the bloke we had.

    So we have just flat out snubbed Geoff Toovey without even an interview.

    There better be a bloody good reason for it. I'm seriously over this clubs management and it's idiotic decisions.

    End of the day why interview a guy you don't want as the coach.
    Media seems to be saying we have shown Toovey disrespect by not proceeding with his application but at the end of the day if the club doesnt see him as the right guy you move on and focus on who you do want,

    Just as long as the management ain’t holding their breath to get #1 or #2 option across the line then that all falling over and having to retrace a few footsteps and take a few feet out of a few mouths

    We could use the Sharks play book, peptides for a year, get stripped points come next year and win a comp.
    Do we get Dank with Flanagan?

    I'm sure if Green wanted the job he would have it by now. Hes obviously biding his time, hoping Seibold gets the sack.
