Comparing Wane to Bennett is ridiculous. Going to several different clubs and roles and bringing success to almost all of them is very different from essentially a one club man who has never worked outside the very clearly defined structures of Wigan.

As we saw when he played for us, outside that Wigan environment he was a very different beast. If we had a head coach vacancy then yes certainly he would deserve to be on a shortlist but it would still be a risk given his lack of experience outside one club. And, yes, his approach and style of play also give pause for thought.

similar to millward moving to wigan from sts ---also harsh on bluey to say none of the coaches proven winners, and isn't agar going downstairs not upstairs or is a 'top ' coach going to have agar , sinfield and gh telling them what to do

That is a very sensible post.

I'm just sharing what I heard, and that's Agar not wanting to be a head coach beyond this season. I'm not saying Wane is the right man, but who else would be on the shortlist?

Agar knows that for any coach it’s just a matter of time. He won’t want to get sacked, he’ll want to manage it on his own terms and keep some job security.

Long is a possibility if/when Agar does the sideways step.

Ryan Carr is another name. I could see us going to Aus.

Wane is a winner but his teams play bloody awful rugby. Cynical, boring stuff.

Maybe Leeds should be looking at giving a step up to someone like Danny Ward? Or maybe a decent young Aussie like Jason Demetriou?

Ward and Demetriou would be interesting yes. Mr Bennett is out of contract and looking at options for next year... maybe even 1 year of him at Leeds could be an interesting investment, if he'd come over.

Kristian Woolf seems to be going OK at Saints; coaches are out there and getting a head coach gig in the NRL is extremely tough.

I honestly think Wane would do well at somewhere like Brisbane or Canterbury, they need a coach like him

Think Bennett is rumoured to be going back to Queensland judging by the latest media noise over there.

There's the possibility of a third Queensland club starting in the NRL in 2023. Might rule out Demetriou too but if not who knows?

Interesting. I just don't see Agar as a coach to win super league with though. Think he's done brilliant job, but no the man to take us to the next level.....
Wane has some serious pedigree...

Managed to win a Challange Cup though. I think he is the right man for the right time. How long that will be for is another matter
Loving the success and the silverware, keep them coming :)
