Cameron Ciraldo - Yes but unlikelyWould anyone be disappointed with any of these appointments?
Of the European based candidatesWould anyone be disappointed with any of these appointments?
Rumour is that Fittler has the bulldogs job so Flanagan to us is a possibility.Can’t say I’d be disappointed with any of them, but outside of the top 2, I wouldn’t be over the moon.
Unfortunately. Ciraldo and Flanagan seem to be shoe ins for the Tigers and Bulldogs jobs respectively though.
As long as whoever the next coach is has vision for the club that can be executed by building on what we have, rather than ripping the team apart yet again, I would be happy..
Also scares me that could be Stacy.Is this effectively a triple pronged appointment?
A new coach, who would have some say on the assistants to work with them.
Id imagine they would then have a view on the appointment of a Reserve grade coach and Jersey Flegg coach to get consistency in development, culture etc now that they are being reintroduced next season.
Take out the willingness to come to NZ it’s seems to be down to Woolf, Flanno and Ciraldo for the Head Coach.
In a coded messsge from CG they are not afraid of appointing rookie coach - this to me says they know who they like.
For all its recent escapades and short comings this is the club with undoubted opportunities if they can be realised.
Could Paul Green bring Jonathan Thurston with him?Dont actually understand the love for Paul Green. I mean, Thurston and Taumalolo practically carried them along with Morgan.
My pick is one of the storm big 3 if there was ever a chance. The professionalism they bring is second to none. Big game experience, spent their careers under Bellamy, good mentors, well spoken and modern game experience.
Although, everyone is writing off Madge but i think our boys would respond well to him.
And i think that philosophy is what is actually needed. We have no real leaders. Tohu Harris works hard and leads with his actions but hes no "leader". Apart from him though, i dont see anyone else who i would consider. We are lacking real leaders to pull us out of the mud.The problem with Flanno is that at Cornell's he had Gallen, Fifita, and the brought in Lewis, Ennis to establish a core group. He then picked up experienced guys like Prior, Heinington who excelled as supporting pieces.
They played a "drag you into the mud and beat you down" style of football.
I just don't think we have the players or recruitment power to replicate that so with Flanno you're relying on him to achieve the same result an entirely different way.
That's why I think he would be fools gold. Another coach who tries to square peg us into his style. Madge would be the same imo.
