If Lam did do well this season, and, contrary to what has been said, agree to stay on, would we care?

He was at the London Skolars game yesterday. Along with Shaun Wane & Martin Offiah 😊
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.

If Lam did do well does that guarantee he would stay, I thought one of the reasons he took the job was to give him more experience and open up more doors in Oz

I think this is spot on and the primary reason he was happy with a 1 year deal.

I have to say, describing the Wigan job as "one option" is quite worrying if you want SE to be the next coach.

He should have said yes i have a contract to take over as coach at Wigan in 2020 not " Yes thats an option but things could change " :? :? :? :? :?
Agree.

By saying Wigan is only an option seems to imply that nothing, as of yet, is signed.
This is concerning and clarification from the Club sought

What worries me is that I am told that Giz has not signed a contract!

Shaun Edwards, Welsh RU Coach

Post by ian.birchall » Fri Mar 08, 2019 7:16 pm

Interesting article in todays Telegraph.
Welsh rugby will greatly miss him when he departs for Wigan at the end of the year. The 52 year old is a no-nonsense operator who takes few prisoners on the training field, at the same time he is a deeply thoughtful man motivated to improve his players.
97 cap test career Jamie Roberts says 'Shaun is a very honest guy, he'll tell you when you've messed up and he'll praise you when you do well. He's a guy who cares deeply about seeing guys improve. He's so passionate and the guys love that. I loved working under Shaun. You'd come in on a Monday after a game and he'd have your name up on a projector and the critique of every players. He's a tough taskmaster but a genuine bloke, it didn't make for pretty reading at times.
The thing I remember most clearly is the passion in his delivery as a coach. I'll never forget one of his lines, 'If you miss a tackle, I miss a tackle. He feels like he is out on the pitch with us'
Regarder une fille en bikini, c'est comme avoir un revolver chargé sur sa table:
Il n'y a rien de mal a ça mais il est difficile de penser à autre chose.

amusingly this read like a comment about a recent ex wigan coach :D

lets hope he brings this back to Wigan
RL's biggest issue is the constant negativity of its own fans.

support verb [ (ENCOURAGE)

"to agree with and give encouragement to someone or something because you want him, her, or it to succeed"
