We'll all be gutted if that's true.

Seriously though, I can't remember a less popular appointment in my time watching the club, he would have had to win everything to win us over, and even then we would have credited tony. Sadly for him his appointment coincided with us going from a free scoring entertaining team to a boring and dreadful team, sure that was nothing to do with agar though, good luck dragons.

Can anyone point to another assistant coach in the sport who has received so much criticism in comparison to the big boss?

Even at Wakefield a few weeks ago, people were calling for him to be lynched but started hyperventilating if they overheard a bad word being said about Smith.

I think we many of us understand it as, Agar does have the greater training imputation on the field. TS ticks the boxes for Agar to take his heat along with running the club.

He gets this level of criticism because lots of people think that Smith is far less hands on in the the day to day coaching of the team, and that vast amounts of things in training are done by Agar.

I don't know if that's true or not, but if it is then he rightly deserves the level of scrutiny and criticism he gets.

Is that really any different to other clubs? I can't imagine that Shaun Wane has much influence when it comes to backs training, for example.

With no disrespect to him.. some of the best coaches over here can only manage an assistant role in the NRL. Agar must have a fierce Squash backhand!
