    No he doesn't. He says 'we'll turn up in 2019'. The team will turn up on the field.

  2. "We will turn up in 2019, we will be committed, and we will be committed to doing our best, and being our best"
    Oh yeah you boys are right, had another listen, the "ah" just before he says it threw me off.

    The word "we" includes the person saying it ... Otherwise the word "you" would have been used.
  4. Yep, but saying "I will turn up next year" is a bigger deal than saying "we will".

    He could have quite easily have said I will be coaching the Broncos next season. He didnt.

    If he gets a two or three year deal somewhere, he’ll go and he will take TPJ and Oates with him. Wayne has always been about Wayne, it is why he has stayed so good for so long.

    If I were the Eels, I’d be taking the punt for sure.
  7. Pretty sure that came up and Bennett made quite clear that he wouldn't even consider an offer.
  8. It's definitely 'We will...' Garry is just having a Yanny moment.

    It's an inclusive we. Bennett has always been big on the night being about the players and he wouldn't be making any assurances unless he meant to keep them.

    Wayno will win the comp next year and retire a legend. I have a feeling he will show all the naysayers up.

    "We will turn up in 2019."

    Really? Well you and your entire team of pea hearts sure as shit didn't turn up this year. A great opportunity at a title wasted Canberra style. Yeah I'm still mad about it.

    Bennett better **** retire after 2019 so the NRL might give us a chance via politics, so long as Bennett retirement > Cammy and Cronk storyline.

    If he joins another club, forget about it.

    Bennett, Maguire head to head

    OCTOBER 10, 2018
    Wayne Bennett and Michael Maguire are only weeks away from locking horns in a three-match Test series in England. A more intriguing game involving the pair looms on home soil.
    Bennett is due to touch down in England imminently, having insisted to all and sundry that he will see out the final year of his deal in Brisbane, where he and many others believe the roster is primed to win a premiership.
    At the same time, as revealed in The Australian last week, the Wests Tigers are circling and Bennett could figure in a plan that would allow Ivan Cleary to leave for Penrith, where many believe his heart and head already lie.
    Maguire is also on the Tigers radar and his future could ultimately hinge on Bennetts decision, placing the pair in competition not only for international honours, but also potentially their club coaching futures.
    The Tigers are doing their due diligence. They know Bennett would be the easiest sell with fans should they decide to release Cleary from the final years of his deal.
    When the club brought Cleary back from the coaching wilderness a few years back after he was sacked by Penrith because general manager of football Phil Gould thought he was tired they were considered a basket-case.
    Now it appears coaches are falling over themselves to take over the Tigers, including a seven-time premiership winner regarded as the greatest mentor in the games history.
    Bennett would be a serious upgrade on Cleary, a coach with a sub-50 per cent winning ratio whose relationship with Tigers fans has been irreparably damaged by events of recent months.
    The challenge is the timing. The Tigers may be forced to wait 12 months for Bennett, which would leave them in an invidious and puzzling position.
    They could make Cleary serve another year of his deal and wait for Bennett to come at the end of next season, although that would effectively mean treading water under a coach who has his mind elsewhere and who has a strained relationship with officials and fans alike.
    Or they could change paths and focus their energies on Maguire, whose coaching record doesn’t match Bennetts but more than eclipses Clearys. Maguire won more than 60 per cent of games at Wigan and South Sydney, capturing grand finals at both clubs.
    The Tigers are due to return to training in early November. The clock is ticking. The repercussions stretch across the length and breadth of the NRL. Maguire, having already turned down the opportunity to coach Manly, covets the Brisbane job but faces competition for the post as the Broncos ponder their options beyond next season.
    Given the way the club has handled the decision to bring down the curtain on Bennett, it would be a major surprise if their pursuit of a replacement doesn’t follow a methodical process in which alternatives are forced to undergo a rigorous assessment.
    Maguire is certain to figure in that process. So too Queensland State of Origin coach Kevin Walters, who has long eyed the Broncos job and had a glittering history with the club as a player.
    South Sydney are locked in extension talks with Anthony Seibold, but he is on the Broncos radar, although the sense is that he may ultimately extend his time at the Rabbitohs. Chances are current Brisbane assistant Jason Demetriou will receive the courtesy of an interview as well.
    The Broncos will have no shortage of options, the head coach role at Brisbane remaining one of the most prestigious in the NRL. The Tigers will have plenty of alternatives as well. They have come a long way in a short time, to the point where coaches with outstanding resumes want a piece of the action.
    Cleary helped with that process, but he won’t be missed.

    I had to laugh at that one :)

    at this stage, i would be leaning to Maguire ... he has had premiership success in both the NRL and ESL .... my biggest concern is how he seemed to burn his players out ... if he has learned from that he will be an asset to us.

    apparently, he will have one condition and that is that he be allowed to continue his role with the Kiwi's

    Him continually coaching NZ is no problem in my books. Who knows it might benefit us in some way but I doubt it. We let WB do it so I can’t see why we would deny a good coach for that reason.

    Personally i think the only way we will sign Maguire is if Seibold tells The Broncos he isn't interested in the job.

    My bet is we end up with demetriou and Walters a close second. Maguire and Seibold don’t seem like they’d move to Brisbane.
