    Being honest. I was aboard the Bennet train for the short-term but after reading some of your comments here it got me thinking and I reckon you're all right. While I do think he'd be able to draw some top players in, I think there might be a bit of Hasler in his approach just trying to get that premiership win without looking at our long-term future enough.

    As for Pay? I don't think there's any other option but to extend and I expect us to unless he has an absolute stinker of a year. Time will tell.

    Is Bennett the best coach in the NRL? I don't think so, I think Bellamy, Stuart, Hasler, Flanagan and even Robinson has him covered, but he is still in the top 8 in the NRL.

    I like the idea of Bennett coming in fo 2 years,he would bring a lot of experience to our club and,I believe his knowledge of the game would help guys like wakeham,Renouf,maybe have pay as an assistant,certainly he would be learning,from one of the best,the chances of the club attracting quality players under Bennett would also improve,in reality we have not shown much improvement under pay over the last 2 years

    Options...
    1. Go hard and sign Bellamy starting from 2022, keep Pay or another caretaker till then.
    2. Sign Bennett as a mentor to a young coach
    3. Sign Flanaga for 2022 if we can't do better
    Or if by a miracle the Roorters collapse then Robinson is the obvious choice :mask:

    Another huge point is that Bennett just like Hasler like to rule completely. I can't see our club heading down that path again. Especially a club with rookie management.

    Shaun Wane - head coach
    Adrian Lam - assistant coach
    Michael Ennis - assistant / consultant
    That would be my ideal scenario if we aren't to pursue/risk Flanagan.
    Pay has this season only to improve imo, I don't believe he's warranted an extension because of Covid.

    Picking a coach for your club has that unique set of circumstances where some want bulldogs DNA and some couldn't care less, but from what I'm reading the couldn't care less group is growing. And from an outsiders perspective that is a good thing as the talent pool of coaches from which to draw on that have bulldogs DNA is very limiting.

    Thompson and Bateman played under Shaun Wane as well.
    He'd be my pick.

    That would be my play.

    two year deal with a medical twice a season.

    can 'fail' his medical after a season if need be.

    wouldnt be hard to poke old through a 72 year olds fitness.
