But could you imagine a team with Latrell, Walker and Smith.. All liabilities from a mentality point of view

Yes but if anyone can handle them it's Bennet.
He hasn't won a premiership since 2010 so maybe he's not handling them as good as everyone thinks. Cleary, Maguire, Green, Hasler, Bellamy, Robinson and Flanagan have all outperformed him since his last GF win.

He won an Origin series with a pretty ordinary side.

Wayne seems to do pretty well with these larrikin type players tbf.

He will end up at the rabbitohs or the dragons.
I cant see the Roosters subsidizing him to play for the Rabbits. **** if that happens it really means they desperately wanted him out of the club.

He did well there, but when it comes to winning premierships he's been struggling for a while. Not many coaches last 12 years without a Grand Final win. Granted he has a lot of runs on the board from 1987-2010.

Ricky and Brian Smith both went longer without a GF win though, without having anywhere near the success that Wayne did. Shows how optimistic some clubs are when it comes to hiring coaches.

I don't think his role at the Phins was ever to win a premiership. Hes there to lay the foundations.

His job at the Broncos second spell and South's was good enough though even without winning a premiership.No doubt though that would have been the icing on the cake. Would have been nice win that 2015 final!

His second spell at the Broncos was a failure. He took a team that had potential and didn't win a grand final, just like at souths. Your in the business of winning comps not just doing well.

The titans will prob offer him 1.5mil.

He'd play his best footy at the wahs with the amount of NZ leaders they have to pull him into line (Tohu, JFH, RTS, SJ, etc), but I doubt they need or want him.

Imagine the mayhem he’d cause on the GC

Wouldn’t put it past them still - just think the back-ended deal Des could get him

Thats nonsense to say his second spell was a failure at all. When Wayne came back he fixed up a lot of the issues that were troubling us and got us back to being genuine contenders again. That was a win from where we were. We just weren't good enough to clinch that grand final.

There are of course different levels to success. He always achieved the minimum expectation of coaching a club like ours, but in his second spell he just didn't win that Premiership we wanted. Still doesnt mean his tenure was a failure, it just could have been better.

I'm breaking my absence on the forum for a different reason than I expected.

Last month Luke Keary re-signed with the Roosters for the 2025 season.

Then changed his mind and announced his retirement

Now he's changed his mind again and signed a one season deal with Catalans

I'm sure the medical retirement was long enough to get it off the books though 🙄🙄🙄

$500k a season is a pretty good deal, sure he's been out of form but a change of scenery will do him good.
