Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

Tierney, if he gets game time. Poor indictment of the side really, worst to make a GF in the modern era. And I still think they'll beat those primrose and blue bast1ds touch wood lol.

I was there for all of them and if you take say the 2010 side with Pinky Riddle, Fielden's swansong etc - incomparable. The only place, and a damn impt. one at that time where we had an ostensible disadvantage over them was in the halves. Deacon was well done by then although to his credit he played well on the night.

It's an inferior side on paper but let's hope they just keep punching above their weight.

New coach
Nothing against wane personally but the more I think of it the more it matter not what tools he has at his disposal we will end up playing the same shocking bad game plan next year.

Madge took the same players noble had basically and turned them into winners

Look at hodgson spends a few years at hull kr and was barely quotable, goes to nrl gets top coaching nearly wins dally m

Mike cooper again same story goes to nrl proper coaching and becomes a very sought after player

We need an nrl standard coach, no one in Superleague IMO is suitable except maybe powell but the Superleague coaches are just regurgitated ex players with very little in formal training and it should serve as no surprise since the Aussie coachs left the top clubs the standard of the league has slipped too

Too much jobs for the boys - if we got a cutting edge coach we would decimate superleague
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure

I think you have a point, but it's not quite that simple, or with a NRL-tested Sam T in our side we'd walk everything! Or is he the exception that proves the rule?

However, as has been noted before, the chances of getting a top NRL coach to SL are vanishingly small, and even if we did, he's be back down under at the first sniff of a chance.

Wouldn't we stand a chance of getting the next McGuire for a couple of years? Of course, like McGuire, he would see us a springboard to success in the NRL, and jump ship the instant he got what he was after. But if we go in with our eyes open, then an unholy alliance could work?
In the meantime, Wane could go to the Warriors and learn the things that he doesn't know now...

As Wane has probably done enough to keep the job, regardless of Saturday's results, then I just pray for entertainment to be a higher priority. We have players like FPN (what a great signing), Gelling and Williams who can really put on a show - let them off the leash!
