It was always said that it was merge that killed Laurie Nichols.
He had eventually and begrudgingly accepted but passed on before WT had played a game.
Yep the week before round 1 if I remember rightly.
Though he had come out in the media wishing them all the best and said he would cheer them on.

I just watched the game. Interesting for me watching Hastings; what you see is what you get, he's a competitor, a decent organiser, he puts in a shift, has a solid if unspectacular kicking game. I always thought he'd lack pace for the NRL. But having Brooks as a foil may help him, at Wigan he was often guilty of trying to do it all himself. But a poor Head Coach at the time might well take much of he blame for that. At any rate, there is no doubt that he is much better player than the kid who left the NRL. And Gildart? Really, he used to be much better than that. You wouldn't think it was the same player who had Jack Bird in his back pocket when we beat Cronulla in the WCC. But his loss of form long pre-dates your signing, I'm afraid.

Not surprising. Should’ve happened at the end of last season. They backflipped on sacking him at the very last moment. Was never going to work from there.

Not entirely unexpected, but I don’t lay the entire blame on him either.
We are rudderless and going nowhere with this board, management and group of players.
Sheens has a monumental task ahead of him to turn the titanic around.

Ciraldo is a great young coach but getting a development coach into that club is a giant mistake imo. Just not set up to succeed.

Talk Papali’i wants out of Tigers contract to stay at Parramatta, anyone heard anything about this? My understanding is it has to do with McGuire no longer coaching.

Sheens is the new coach for next season with Benji and Farah his assistants. I really don't know how to feel about this.

Personally think it's an appalling idea.

Think they were struggling to get anyone in and knew the fan base wouldn't turn as quickly on those two.

I’m sickened by the idea of Teflon coaching again.

Noddy got shafted

I honestly hope we go backwards with Teflon coaching.
Will serve them right for going backwards instead of forward

Not even being able to beat a half-strength Panthers. Thank * I have missed a lot of games this season due to clashing with other things because it is torture watching our clueless attack and piss poor defence.
