do WE do that?
"I have a list of every assistant coach and coach, and their strengths and weaknesses. As I do every player from under 16s right the way through," Gardner said.

"That's what any competent CEO and management team would do. We had that all done. We were looking at doing a review at the end of the year, and we have to have the opportunity to look at that to make decisions.

And if we do, id love to know where the CEO and management team rank our own coach and assistant coaches. Or even our list of players. TBH i doubt they do even do any of this, let alone going to under 16 level lol

We are behind in pretty much every facet. We are like the amateur club in a professional competition. We cant even remember our jerseys let alone do half of what professional clubs should be doing.

yea i wondered that as well. would seem obvious that any and all clubs should be doing a rating of everyone in the comp
 
I’d be alright with Flanagan, Toovey or Griffin having a go.

Just hope they don’t promote internally if SK leaves/fired/abducted by aliens etc

Flanagan we cannot be serious. A man who set up and oversaw a systematic Perfeormqce Enhancing Drug Program for whole Playing group. Once that was going he turned to cheating the Salary Cap in such a ham fisted way it isn't funny. Then he breached his no contact penalty from the nrl. NO THANKS.

What about the Tenterfield First Grade Coach or any one else Boy George has a personal relationship with.

We have become such a cot case with the worst roster in the competition. Start at the top- CEO must go and with all a of the the playing group and go from there
 
I think Brown is a quality coach and a very principled man.
The Warriors are lucky to have him.

I can't see SK lasting.
I hope the club don't leave him in place too long to screw things up more.
SK I admire you as a player. You suck as a coach.

I just hope the club gives Brown the support and resources necessary to rebuild the team.
It is going to be a massive job.

I hope I am around to see the fruits.

Souths lock in Bennett succession plan
Wayne Bennett’s succession plan has been set once his deal expires.

Next year will mark the last year we will see Wayne Bennett as coach of South Sydney.
The Sydney Morning Herald has revealed that Bennett’s assistant, Jason Demetriou, has agreed to a four-year extension that will see him take over as Bennett’s successor and lead the club into the future.
Demetriou’s new four-year deal will begin immediately but will still serve as Bennett’s assistant for this year and next year before taking over the reigns as of November 1, 2021, when Bennett’s three year deal expires.
There has long been some speculation about how long Bennett will remain in the coaching business ever since he switched from Brisbane on a three year deal. The Demetriou extension clearly labels and maps out the club’s succession plan moving forward.
Bennett has given the club his blessing on the succession plan and believes that Demetriou is ready to take over as coach. Demetriou was part of the coaching staff that defeated the Brisbane Broncos in the 2015 Grand Final.
After a season on St George Illawarra’s staff, Demetriou joined Bennett at Brisbane and then followed him to the Rabbitoh’s last year.
Demetriou, a former rugby player in England, has enjoyed success wherever he has gone. He took control of the Rabbitoh’s NRL Nines squad and also plays a hands on role with the team throughout the season.
Demetriou was listed to take over Bennett at Brisbane, but Anthony Seibold ultimately got the job, causing a bit of drama with no love lost between Demetriou and Seibold after both engaged in a war of words prior to their clash in August.
Bennett’s next move is unclear once he completes his coaching. He could take over as the head of football at the Souths or another club that would see him further add to his illustrious coaching career and games tally, which stands at 836 NRL games.
Bennett is a target should a second Brisbane franchise be given the nod ahead of the next broadcasting deal. Bennett has already set a number of records in the coaching business that will be unlikely to be surpassed by anyone else and he may decide to end his career once his deal expires.
Demetriou’s rise to the top is just one of the intriguing power shifts for the Souths. The Rabbitoh’s board reportedly discussed the possibility of parting ways with general manager Shane Richardson, only for co-owner Russell Crowe to save his job.
Regardless of what happens behind closed doors, Demetriou should have a fairly strong squad once he takes over as coach, with superstars Latrell Mitchell and Cameron Murray hitting their primes while Jai Arrow will join the Rabbitoh’s from next season.


I like the part where he could be head of football

The Warriors two most successful coaches have had things in common:
1, Both are Aussies
2, Both had no previous 1st grade coaching experience, prior to coming here
My new message to the Warriors would be to go to Sydney and find out who is the best assistant coach. After doing that offer him some decent coin and lay down a challenge e.g. how does one turn around this club?

What a good idea. :) If I recall when Eric Watson decided to buy the club he asked Ridge for advice. Ridge put him onto Mad Mick Watson who told Watson that was the thing to do, and he knew just the guy, Daniel Anderson.. A genuine first grade coach resulted.

However ladies and jellybeans...wait there is more...the same Ridge wrote in his book how disappointed he was that Fulton was appointed Manly first grade coach over the head of Mark Graham, the reserve grade coach, who everybody at the club rated highly.

The said Mark Graham was the coach Daniel Watson replaced, but who although had an immensely difficult time with lack of resources and big name players, had assembled some once in a lifetime locals e.g. Ali Laiititi and had them groomed nicely for Daniel Anderson to take to the next level. That cannot be ignored.

So what this up and coming Aussie would need, as well as ability that nobody else has seen, would be a half decent squad of locals to inherit. Maybe that is where Brian Smith's 70 names come into the frame.

Who knows?
