Paul McGregor sacked by the Dragons so this makes 4 coaches sacked this year and who know there may be more. I certainly hope that we may be able to pick up some players who like to coached by a good people manager such as Des.

Shame that Barrett has signed with the dogs, he should’ve gone for this gig. The slappee becomes the slapper!!
Exactly what I thought ... could have even rode on Flanno's coat tails for a while.

Only one more coached to be sacked this season - I assume sooner than later now after this.

With the Illawarra roster he/his players should be much higher up the ladder.
At Manly wouldn't you want: Vaughan, Sims, Frizel, McInnes, Lomax, Dufty, Aitkin....?
They did have a few injuries... and I love that you didnt include Hunt or Norman who account for a large part of their cap and have been sh*t...
Thought Mary was very classy in his statement (as he always is) and wish the big fella well...

Are you forgetting Des got sacked from his last job .... so did Wayne Bennett .... so did Nathan Brown ... so did Michael MacQuire ... Ivan Cleary sacked from the one before, and then re-hired .... Sticky Stuart sacked from Easts, Parra, and cronulla .... so did Paul Green ....

... and 5 of those 7 are Premiership winners ....

Of the current coaches the ones who have never been sacked are ...

Bellamy .. for good reason
Trent Robinson .. for good reason
The **** at Parra
Trent Barrett
Siebold .... but hold all betting slips ..
the first timers at Titans, Newcastle and Cronulla


Getting sacked is highly over-rated in coaching ....

An interesting question is ... has any coach gone on to win a premiership ... after being sacked ?

What's that old saying?

There are two kinds of coaches, the ones that have been sacked and the ones that are waiting to be sacked.

Very rarely does a career coach go through without getting the punt.
Bellamy is odds on to be an exception to the rule.

Depends... do you count resigning/quitting mid-contract while the team is going terribly?

Tim Sheens had a 26% win record at the Cowboys before he resigned in the middle of 2001... and later won the 2005 premiership with the Tigers.

Bets on that he picks up job at the bulldogs next year. Him and Barrett are tight I’ve heard.

All the teams coached by St George players from Mary’s era seem to lack that real camaraderie factor you can see in the great teams. It was a reason they never won a premiership as well I believe. Brown seems like the most likely to build that sort of culture.
