State of Origin Captain
- Jan 14, 2015
Ha ha, so we are in the " believe what you want " territory now. Like i said, i take any contract talk in the media with a pinch of salt because i dont have anything to back it up. At the end of the day, i proved he wanted to play under Bennett. You couldnt prove a thing about contracts, i couldnt prove a thing about contracts. So according to the press, he's probably been on anything from $600k to a million a year since he left Souths. Who knows for sure apart from Latrell, his manager and the clubs involved.Believe what you want, your man is yesterday’s hero.
I wouldnt call him yesterdays hero, but his best days are behind him. He is better option than Walters, Or Seibold was, and he is a better option than any other coach who is currently available for 2022. He's still a good NRL coach who gets the best out of players and if he was coach now we would be a better side. We wouldn't be top a top 6 side, but we wouldn't be a bottom 4 side either. He's still probably the best option we have out there to help with a rebuild. I'm not keen to see him in charge again tbh, but i'd be keen to see him in a role like they proposed to Bellamy or one like he had with New Zealand when they wont the world cup in 2008 and he was assistant. No reason at all we cant tap into his knowledge and experience if we wanted to and he was willing.
