Search for new coach begins

Recommended Posts

Well Tony has fallen on his sword after a very disappointing season.

I think he's right to go and has been fantastic for us but the timing is right to bring someone else in who can reinvigorate the players.

It'll be an interesting off season that's for sure and let's hope the new guy comes in quickly and can sort out any recruitment we need before the better players get snapped up.

As they say all good things come to an end - is it purely a coincidence it all happens the same week former Wigan Coach Michael Maguire gets the boot in Australia.

Have the Wolves moved quickly to ensure they get their new man?

I shall be eternally grateful for what Tony has done for our club and will always have fond memories of him. 

His time is over now and although Maguire didn't encourage an expansive style of play whist at Wigan i would have swapped their trophy cabinet for ours during his tenure so would be very happy to have him as our new coach!

I'm sure if anyone in the press is in the know Gary it is you so we await your insight!

At least four being talked to but I believe Maguire's family are not too keen on the move back to blighty

To be honest I don't know anything about the people who we're rumoured to be talking to as I just don't follow the NRL. so don't know whether this would be a good signing or not???

Do you have any insight beyond what we can read on-line?

Not a totally happy ship and the new guy is going to have to hit the floor running. Expecting appointment before the weeks out. I have heard the guy they really wanted didn't want to come!

We really need a quick resolution as we've now lost 9 players from this year's squad and have only one replacement confirmed.

I think we may have other players coming out of contract that also need sorting soonest.

What a mess!!!!

Apparently NRL news feed reporting our decision is between Maguire and Pay. Board meeting tomorrow afternoon...

Have you heard anything similar Gary or have any other "more accurate" information?

Apparently some big jobs have come up in Auz so that has delayed things - so i suspect whatever happens we will end up with second choice now!

2nd choice maybe but at least they were in contention for the big jobs so hopefully we'll get someone decent, although we could do with them in sooner rather than later......

As with overseas players,if the coaches are second choice or worse it is no good if they are coming over here with very little interest in the job & intending just to twiddle their thumbs for a couple of years....on a nice fat salary ,no doubt.

Reports from Down Under suggest that we're about to announce Cronulla Sharks assistant Steve Price as our new coach.

Don't know much about him tbh other than what I can read on-line, but he'll get my 100% support as always..........

Up the Wire...
