Seriously how did Wright get up there that quick - he was assistant coach for Otara in the Shaman in 2011 by 2014 he's in the Kiwis lol You have to admit it's been fast tracked.Agreed - NSW Cup will be much harder.
Injuries plays a massive role in NSW Cup success.
I would argue he overcame equally or even greater talented side in Eesl, Knights & Roosters.
Lolohea for the most part has been ordinary for the NYC squad. obviously extremely talented player looks like he is carrying to much pounds atm.
Lisone & Kata were super talented but improved heaps this year.
Bar Adam Tuimavave-Gerrard who was great last year too......those names you mention were average in previous years.
Lino improved massively - whilst Maumalo (still raw) barely got selected by Ackland.
I am usually anti-job for the boys - but not 100% that why he got the job.
Was Jones friends with Scurrah??
Also name a better coach suited in the country.
Kelvin Wright is obviously rated highly at the Warriors & NZRL.
Jobs for the boys? Well how does a rugby league school teacher become CEO for Auckland Rugby League.
Pretty strange Blackmore can't even get a look in TBH He has a decent coaching CV.
