    I’ve been reliably informed that Andrew Hill is in the UK to speak with Justin Holbrook.

    Reliably informed?

    Translation: I'm bored so I'll make up something.

    One good thing if it was true. Is that he would have had plenty of opportunity to see what English talent could make the step up to the NRL. And bring some of those guys over who tend to take less cash initially to bolster our squad.

    So Pay must of been told he's out at the end of the season I assume? If Hill is openly talking to a potential new coach.

    How would Pay know? Only the best reporters on the kennel know these facts.

    He can save money and just have TK coach the side.
    Guaranteed 110% win rate!

    I just watched a video of justin Holbrook. Was a massive bulldogs fan .baa baa was his favourite player. Seems well spoken and switched on.
    Loved pay as a player but I don't thing head coach is his go.doesnt seen to have the communication skills required especially during press conf.im sure he indirectly criticised one of the players which I thought why? Keep it in house

    This would be great news if true. I think he's a very good young coach who is the ideal candidate. He's done a great job at St. Helens and doesn't have the baggage some of the suggested NRL experienced coaches have.

    And if this has any truth to it at all.. then it’s very exciting and Holbrook would take us to new levels!! And YES please. But probably another pipe dream lol...!!

    Great option if true. And is a career coach more so then an assistant like Pay who is looking to make the step up.

    I’d welcome him (I would have hired him or Dymock last time round) so dud move by the board for going for pay. And we have seen he is out of his depth.

    But yeh. Doubt we will get him.

    He's easily the best option without NRL experience available imo, wanted him when Des was given the arse. Pls someone else come in and support this @Big M @dogwhisperer @MasterP anyone, I'm fucking desperate :tearsofjoy:

    From what I know, I agree.
    He should be a priority, with Cronk as assistant and Flanno in the background.

    Justin holbrook. Just as much a gamble as Pay if you ask me. Flanno is pretty much what we are after. Proven credentials, tough, ruthless and can pull some marquee instantly.

    I’m with you man on bringing this guy to our club
    Surely somebody else can confirm this story about being in the UK
    Don’t we have any baggage handlers that could keep a lookout for him trying to sneak in and out of the country

    Hasn’t he heard of Skype or FaceTime, would be a waste of time and money given he’s not the one who’ll be employing a new coach should we get one
