Are you kidding. Our best player - Taumalolo - does not get on with Henry. People have the shortest memories, I swear.Who would you guys like to replace him? This is gonna sound odd but I'd try get Neil Henry again. He coached the Titans to the finals despite having no big names. Only reason why isn't there anymore is because of Hayne.
Another would be those Walker Brothers, we'd probably still suck but games would be entertaining again.
The same thing happened to Maguire at Souths. Now both he and Souths are showing improvement in new environments.Wouldn't be surprised if Green found success elsewhere either.
I don't think he's necessarily a bad coach, has just gotten stuck in his ways and needs a shake up.
Someone who values that backs are more than just battering rams would be a good start.The same thing happened to Maguire at Souths. Now both he and Souths are showing improvement in new environments.
Demetriou is the man I feel, I hope they can get him and let him do what he wants with the football department.
I'm fearful they'll sign the wrong person just for the sake of a change and then we'll be back in the same or worse position in a couple of years. They have to get it right.
If we can't get Demetriou or someone as equally impressive in the short term I'd rather they keep Green and try to clear out the squad more and run a fine tooth comb over every element of the club and look for ways to improve, with one eye on trying to lure a good replacement coach.
I would be okay with it if they sack him now/soon and plug a short term caretaker in who can instill a sense of identity - Payney or Hannay come to mind. Someone who knows what the club is about and someone the boys will play for.Someone who values that backs are more than just battering rams would be a good start.
I hope we sack him now so we have time to find a new coach who can start the pre-season with a clean slate. This can’t be allowed to drag into next season.
Can't deny that's an impressive record, must be due an NRL shotDemetriou returned to Australia in 2013, becoming the head coach for the Northern Pride in the Queensland Cup. During his two seasons at the Pride, the club won back-to-back minor premierships, the 2014 Queensland Cup Grand Final and the inaugural NRL State Championship game. In 2014, he coached the Queensland Residents side, who defeated the NSW Cup rep side 24–16.
In October 2014, Demetriou joined the North Queensland Cowboys as an assistant coach. On 4 October 2015, Demetriou was a member of the Cowboys' coaching staff in the side's 17–16 Grand Final victory over the Brisbane Broncos.
In January 2016, Demetriou joined the St George Illawarra Dragons as an assistant coach and as head coach to their NSW Cup feeder team, the Illawarra Cutters. In September 2016, he was named coach of the 2016 Intrust Super Premiership NSW Team of the Year.
In 2017, Demetriou joined the Brisbane Broncos under head coach Wayne Bennett. He took over as the side's attacking coach in Round 6 of the 2018 NRL season, with the side scoring the second most tries in the competition from that point forward.
In December 2018, he joined the South Sydney Rabbitohs as an assistant coach, following Bennett to the club.
Billy got asked half jokingly a little while back and he said no way. Happy to help backs etc for Storm, but that's it. He is very astute when it comes to the game though.Think outside the box......
Would Billy slater like a chief coaching job, with JT as assistant.
Get rid of hannay, he's a slug
