Lockers as Head Coach? Yeah it’s a nice thought but he’s been coaching less than 6months. It’s far, far too early to even think of him in that role. Look at Keiron Cunningham for what being given the top job too soon achieves. He needs to learn his trade (again) and develop as a coach before he even gets anywhere near the top job. Lockers as the next Head Coach is an absolute no.

I'm not saying Lockers should be the next Head Coach, but he's definitely been coaching longer than 6 months. He was involved with the academy for more than one season whilst he was still playing, not sure how many.

Being involved is different to coaching though, he may well have taken a few sessions, been to a few games but ultimately it’s not really coaching. As Trainman said he should be years away from that role. He’s a Wigan legend, a no doubt hall of famer in Wigan and RL. I would hate him to be in the top job too soon and his reputation tarnished like Cunningham’s was at Saints. As a mate of mine said “Cunningham was a quality player but a f*****g sh**e coach”. Patience is key here.

Oh for sure I agree with that and instantly thought of Cunningham when it was mentioned, just wanted to point out he has been doing stuff. I'm not keen on anyone coaching players they played alongside, I can't remember that ever going well.

I would love it if Lockers managed to get an assistant coaching job in Australia for a few years and then came back as our head coach.

He's obviously knocked back a lot of NRL offers though as a player so I guess it's unlikely.

Why should he go to Australia to cut his teeth?

I don’t understand.
Unofficially the most boring poster on Cherry and White.

I doubt he’d go the NRL to be honest. IIRC he rejected it because of family reasons, if wrong I’m sure I’ll get corrected. I can’t see that having changed since which is a shame but it isn’t at the same time. He’d learn a great deal and possibly develop more as a coach but on the flip side we get to keep him in British RL

I don’t think it’s just Lockers we have plans for coaching wise.

The club think very highly of our current captain in relation to coaching, it’s likely this was significant to his appointment as captain, he’s a lot smarter than I think people give him credit for.

Even during his post match moan Chester said Johnstone's injury had nothing to do with the defeat.
Nothing to see!
