    Scrapping the anti-tampering rule allowing players to negotiate with rival clubs in the final year of their contracts and replacing it with an official trade period would prevent a repeat of the coaching merry-go-around which saw five clubs change coaches in recent weeks.

    That is the reasoning behind a proposal expected to be discussed at a meeting of NRL club CEOs in Sydney on Wednesday, which will also consider extending the anti-tampering restrictions to coaches.

    Both issues have been listed on the agenda for the meeting after the fallout from the off-season coaching merry-go-round sparked by Ivan Cleary's move from Wests Tigers to Penrith and Brisbane's decision to part ways with Wayne Bennett next year.

    The Panthers made it clear they wanted Cleary following their sacking of Anthony Griffin a month before the finals and the Tigers released him from the remaining two years of his contract after he signed a three-year deal with Penrith starting in 2021.

    The Cleary saga coincided with South Sydney coach Anthony Seibold's decision to pursue interest from the Broncos for 2020, which prompted the Rabbitohs to sign Bennett.

    With the Tigers appointing New Zealand coach Michael Maguire and Manly signing Des Hasler to replace Trent Barrett, five NRL clubs have changed coaches in recent weeks.

    While a Seibold-Bennett swap for next season is yet to be confirmed, the coaching upheaval has created uncertainty about the future of players across the NRL and a roster shake-up is expected at a number of clubs.

    Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe has suggested coaches should be bound by similar anti-tampering rules to players, who cannot negotiate with rival clubs until the final year of their contract.

    "I think in order to protect a lot of different aspects of your business we should have the same rules for coaches as for players," Warriors chief executive Cameron George said.

    "I think it would be in the best interests of our fans and protecting our sponsors, and for recruitment and retention, and how that all operates. If it is good enough for our players to have to wait until November 1 it should be good enough for coaches too."

    A number of other clubs believe anti-tampering rules should be extended to include coaches but there is also a view that such a move would have little impact and allowing players to negotiate with rival clubs in the final year of their contract is the cause of the coaching changes.

    If the same restrictions for players were imposed on coaches, Cleary would not have been able to sign with Penrith for another 12 months but Seibold and Bennett only had to wait until November 1 to change clubs.

    Instead, some clubs want the NRL to consider the introduction of an AFL-style trade or player transfer windows similar to those which operate in football.

    "The November 1 negotiation date with no transfer or trade window is the problem," one club boss told NRL.com.

    There is a belief among some clubs that a transfer window would benefit the game on a number of levels, as the AFL trade period generates massive interest during the off-season.

    However, other club CEOs questioned how a transfer window would work and whether it could be policed properly.

    Similar concerns exist around anti-tampering rules, as Australian prop David Klemmer has asked Canterbury for a release to join Newcastle next season while still being contracted to the Bulldogs for a further two years.

      Point is the NRL is broken in so many ways.

          "The Panthers made it clear they wanted Cleary following their sacking of Anthony Griffin a month before the finals"

          I call complete and utter BS. First grade coaches don't hand in their resignation to their current club halfway through the year unless they think they have another coaches job lined up. Trent Barrett was their target despite the pathological liars constant bleating that they weren't interested in him. And they were going to get him too until circumstances changed.

          The Panthers only made it clear that they wanted Ivan Cleary after it became public knowledge that Nathan Cleary wanted to be coached by his dad. For the Panthers it was either risk losing the kid to the Tigpies in the future (or to wherever his dad was coaching) which is something they did not want to happen because Nathan is seen as the future at the foot of the Blue Mountains, or shaft Barrett and go after Ivan Cleary. A situation which threatened to not only screw over Barrett, but both Manly and the Tigpies as well, though both landed on their feet with Des Hasler and Michael Maguire respectively.

          Personally, I could care less about who will coach Souffs and the Donkeys. Their situations are not our concern.

          You know, its funny how this signing of coaches over a year out from the end of their contracts is being seen as a blight on the game by Greenturd and the NRL. But it was obviously perfectly OK back in 2011 when Teflon Todd did exactly that to get Des as the Dogs coach.

              As poor as Gallop's handling of Snake's case was, he was a much better CEO for the NRL.

                It sure takes the nrl so much longer to get things done when they have to appear to go through a consultative process before just asking Politis what he wants to do!


                Maybe I missed something....(prob) but did the first line actually say that allowing players to negotiate in the final year of their contracts would stop coaches changing jobs?

                crikey!

                PS: It's hard to type with the tv on.... I keep typing the occasional word the actors are saying!

                ..and yet I wish they would demonstrate the same due diligence when they want to introduce a knee-jerk reaction brain fart rule change ....

                        How does the anti tampering affect us in this situation? We poached Des from doing FA after Trent handed in his resignation to the club.

                          In my opinion they are missing the biggest issue to affect us all, TPA’s.

                          I fear we are going to see the same 4 or 5 clubs dominate for years to come unless there’s a fairer system implemented.

                              Looks like a trade period is building momentum. Alot of coaches are starting to throw support behind the idea.

                              There is a proposal the NRL has 3 periods.

                              1. Straight after GF to 1 Nov
                              2. Around Rd1 or Rd6
                              3. Mid season.

                              There is also talk that existing clubs are given an opportunity to match a higher offer from another club.

                              Also discussion that TPA values of each club are published.

                              Love to see Uncle Nicks golfing bets published!!!

                              Which is a roundabout way of saying, publishing TPA figures will mean bugger all.

                              Bet if they do the Rorters are not at the top of that list!!
