This - based on our season to this point - is an interesting appointment. Smacks of review on one hand and looking for someone to blame with the other.

I'm not against it, necessarily; would've preferred someone other than Worsfold, but he's won a flag and has been around for a long time, knows the ins and outs of multiple clubs etc. Would just like to know a little more about what precisely he's doing.

Could be a good move, as long as his agenda is well defined and he's not seeking to be a senior coach again then his reasons for taking this role would be for the right reasons and surely being a recent coach is more benefit than having a Walls or such instead.

I'd expect the first few weeks of this role will mostly be collecting data on how things are running, without providing too much.

After that period I'd expect some changes to be put forward, it'll be interesting to see what they are.

One positive is that Worsfold has None, Zero, relationship, friendship with any player on our list, which is of benefit! He's not here like at * to settle the farm after their drug bans, he's here to assess and assist the coaching group. As long as he has no desire for another senior gig then he's probably the best available choice at present.

Has connections with Teague but that's it.

Has a relationship as a mentor to Teague, from their time at WC.
