You raise some decent points, but not sure what age has to do with anything, he is a lot younger than both Bellamy, Hasler and Bennett, who are all coaching at some of the best NRL teams, Ricky Stuart is the same age too.

I think looked sharper, because they have a better side, even at full strength, they are better than us, take away 5 starters, 2 in game injuries and self inflicted red and yellow cards, then you can see why they won easy, not sure it has anything to do with pre season training. It's down to two things, better players and mentality.

Agree with your other points though.

Get your point about Hasler etc but I just think he’s a bit long in the tooth, old ideas and methods. Same with Stanley Gene, absolutely cracking player but what coaching credentials does he have ? Think I’m just looking for reasons. If Rovers had better mentality is that down to coaching ?

That is all anyone needs to know about the impact coaches can have and what you pay them for.
I chatted to an ex NRL UK SL player here in Aus and he was quite interesting about how he talked about different coaches that we all know.
Matt Elliot/Dave Furner etc

He said some of the coaches were bang on average and some were amazing.
Yet we may all have thought they were high pedigree.

We really need the reincarnation of Brian Smith but who?
