It would free up room for us to bring a backs/attack coach in.

Ex- Tiger Daryl Gibson is a free agent at the moment too.

We can’t have Daryl Gibson. People on here and other forums/social media say we shouldn’t appoint former Tigers players as coaches. They’re the problem apparently.

Gibson available or not Mike Ford is , along with Boris, worth trying to keep in my opinion.
All speculation of course - nothing much happening today.Everyone out grabbing Black Friday bargains.

Why did he leave Watarahs so abruptly? It seems to be because they were encountering some difficult times - if that is the case I'm not sure WR is currently the place for him.
I am neither clever enough to understand nor stupid enough to play this game

Wait and see but a well known UK based Backs Coach will soon be available. Along with others.

Whilst I agree being a backs coach is different to being a head coach.
He had a good success rate with his Backs coach role, might be a case of a step too far.

That being said most likely not the best time for his return.
But he is very good friends with Murphy so who knows.

Veasty would obviously be the best ex Tiger about though.

I said when Vesty went to Saints we’d missed a trick. One of the best rated attack coaches going. I too would love to see him back at Tigers.

Who are you talking about?

Townsend perhaps but I can't see him stepping down a role.
Rob Howley?

I cannot tell you as it is not official but I can assure you its dynamite. Please dont slag me off, but when it eventually officially hits the airwaves, there will be a lot of chat. You saw it here first, so to speak.

Dynamite for whom?
