In his defence he'd only just taken the role with Easts and it was a cronulla squad in turmoil.
Griffin had a chance to take us when Brown got the role and said no. Most likely because of the state of our roster.
He has a good winning percentage and has shown he can coach. Punted at penrith due to a personality conflict and penrith wanted Cleary. Did well with Broncs while there.
If we cant get a very good rookie in O'Brien, we should go with Griffin or maybe that English bloke. Mal Reilly can put in a good word for us.
Ryles, not enough experience yet for mine. All the rest, Walter's, barrett etc, no way!
And punted at the Broncos amid personality conflicts ?
Yup. 100% no to Griffin.
And Cartwright. And Barrett. And Brennan.
And any other nothing of a coach.
Compelling stats those.
Sounds like O' Brien is the favourite to get it
This O'Brian lad sounds like he is 60% Bellemy, 20% Robinson and 20% his own man. Could be a lethal mix. Exciting if he does come.
or 60% hype, 20% luck and 20% an unknown quantity.
Sounds a bunch better than many of the other options hahahaha! What's the sentiment like on the other forums?
Not that it's credible but The Mole is saying Woolf is going to St Helens as coach.
I wonder if Brown might be on the Titian's radar.
LOL at Uncle Nick calling foul when he did the same thing to us leading into the 2009 finals series with Brian Smith. We were in the top 4 with a few rounds to go, Roosters signed Smith and then we dropped out of the 4 due to the circus and got bundled out week 1 of the finals.
have to agree, there doesnt seem to be a lot of quality around and I suppose its a move into the vast unknown with the appointment of just about any coach.
I was not particularly over joyed when Brown was appointed but I was proven wrong so lets hope and pray to our sky daddy that the next guy is equally as good for what we need right now.
The Daily Telegraph understands Adam O’Brien, who works alongside Fitzgibbon under head coach Trent Robinson at Bondi, is now hot favourite to replace Nathan Brown, who stood down before being sacked.
Uncle Nick puts a get-out clause in his contract, and then is “livid” when O’Brien has the right to utilise it. If timing was such an issue, why not just have the clause only able to be activated in his 2nd or 3rd year?
Actually I should have done my due diligence on that article. It’s written by James Hooper, and there are no direct quotes from Uncle Nick in there. So it’s entirely plausible Hooper is once again talking out of his arse. I took the bait.
Adam O'Brien top of the hit list, Cameron Ciraldo and Jason Ryles will be approached for interviews, Jim Dymock and David Furner have also been discussed. Knights plan to begin interview process by the end of the week and want it sorted before the end of the regular season.
Browny has been tremendous today. Hasn’t thrown the club under the bus. Been honest and upfront.
Personally, i’d offer him the head of recruitment job. Learnt plenty off Darren Mooney, can recruit some decent players, seems to have cap management ability.
And that would continue his perfect record of every single day in a row.
Recruited Kurn Mann...
I must admit I grew some respect for Browny today.
He admitted he’s not the type of coach to win premierships but if you’re looking for a guy to collect wooden spoons and build a fair roster then he’s the man.
