Now that Green has sadly passed and Flanagan is off the market, the pool of experienced NRL coaches is dire. Who are we supposed to settle on? Kearney? I'm sure that would go over well.
We may have no choice but to settle on another rookie, unless we can find someone decent from Super League.
IMO, they'll chase someone with premiership success in England. if they can't get someone with NRL experience ... although if they wanted Flanagan they could get him, most assistants have get out clauses if they can get a head coaching role
hell, maybe they'll pinch Kristian Woolf from under the nose of Bennett (& the Phins) and give him an NRL start a year ealier than if he stays with the Phins ... or Maybe they'll go with someone like Rohan Smith, who seems to be fairly highly rated and is going pretty well in England.
may be a moot point discussing it though, really depends how Kev and the team starts the 2023 season.
