Or, just perhaps, we made the approach a while ago and they needed to solidify their coaching set up for when they start pre season. Whilst we wait for VISA stuff to clear, he is taking on a role away from the first team. Since when did people take what papers said so seriously??

Indeed, Imagine a scenario where you advertise a job and then interview applicants. at the end of that process you have a couple of candidates, and offer the job to your first choice. He accepts the role, but then decides he doesn't want it. So you have to go back to your second choice and offer him the role.

I was thinking exactly the same.

Are we going to get rid of an assistant coach for an Aussie failed assistant coach?


Last has been learning off Radford
Hodgson has been learning off McGuire

The timings don’t add up.

We tried to get Watson, and failed. I doubt Wests managed to re-jig their coaching roster in such a short time. It seems more like Hodgson became available due to his shuffle rather than the other way around.

Also, I don’t read the papers.


We spoke to Watson that was it. We didn't offer him the job or put a contract to him. It was a conversation and at the end of it, we deemed that what he wanted (backroom staff) we were not happy to oblige. Thats as far as it went. The media, and Watson to be fair, blew it way out of proportion. Hodgson was nearly on our coaching staff a few years ago and impressed when here. Working under Maguire in the NRL will have only built his knowledge

Could have been the other way round.

Hodgson has been learning off McGuire


And McGuire learnt off Meninga and Bellamy but doesnt mean Brett will make a superior SL coach to Andy Last, does it?

It doesn't always work like that. Cunningham worked as assistant coach to Nathan Brown and took over after Saints won SL. Look what happened there.

A lot obviously want a quality Aussie appointment.

Can those bemoaning Brett Hodgson post who they realistically think we can appoint?

I think names like Flanagan etc are unrealistic due to the Salarys theyd command. I can't think of any proven Aussie coachs we can probably afford, so would probably have to tap into some references over there on any up and coming coachs we can afford

Absolutely the Watson stuff never got anywhere much at all, he just used it to get his possible availability out there. He had loads to say about it we said nothing because it was nothing more than an exploratory chat as far as we were concerned. Hodgson on the other hand really impressed Adam Pearson alright and our owner was gutted when he reneged on a deal with us to return to his family in Australia. Thats either why he is about to be our new coach or at least why the media (clutching at straws as always) think he is. For me I'll wait to hear what the club have to say, but I don't expect we'll be waiting long, although how Adam is doing might come into that. However I said 6 weeks ago he was being courted by the Club and in the end it wouldn't surprise me at all.

Of course not, I just really think we need a new coach, this is the wrong time for him with the wrong set of players IMO.

I'm sure the club has done its research, Fonua will know him and I'm sure Ellis still has connections at Wests.

may bring Benji with him...
Shaul spoke highly of Hodgson, whilst under his tutelage,
IF he could bring McGuire's training schedules and preparation to the club..could be an astute appointment...
As with all assistant coaches, the main attribute to become Head Coach ,is to be able to man-manage..
This is the $64,000 question....

Just hope an appointment is made soon so recruitment/retention is concluded. Don't want to miss out on potential targets.
