    Default All quiet on the Justin front.

    Though there may have been an announcement by now. I'm beginning to get a bit jittery now.

    If I remember correctly he said on Sky prior to the Leeds game that there are no issues and it should be sorted in a fortnight

    However the Aussie media reckon the Bulldogs are about to sack Pay..

    Perhaps its us dragging our feet. Ive got a feeling that maybe Mcmanus isn’t too sure about resigning him. Im not sure he’s good enough for an NRL gig either.

    Why would you think that ? Top of the league with games in hand,as good as at a cup final,a balanced squad,youth coming through, Why would you think Mcmanus isn't sure ? Of course he wants him to stay.

    Holbrook was looking at his options back home after magic weekend. If he's not ready to go back to the NRL yet/if the right job isn't available he was going to re-sign with us.

    I'm not sure where he's up to with it yet I haven't heard about that.

    I hope he stays, he's built up a good squad I think he should see if he can win some silverware with it. He's got plenty of time to do a few more seasons here before going back.

    He's been good for us but I don't think he's done enough to get a job as a main coach in the NRL.

    Having said that their can sometimes be family considerations e.g children, schools and family that have to be considered.

    Players are judged on games. Coaches are judged on trophies. Holbrook took over mid 2017. We’ve missed opportunities to win major trophies since he’s been in charges. We are head and shoulders above the other teams this year, but nothing is won in June.

    No mate as far as I know he was brought in place of long. Long was just out of the blue, he was approached by 4 or 5 teams.

    Considering the state we were in when Cunningham got a new contract I would say JH would have to say he is interested in the Leeds or Wigan job for Macmanus to drag his feet. I guess it will be announced in the build up to the Warrington game, maybe even have a fly by during the game with the confirmation after the Warrington antics on Friday.

    If we had shown no improvement then you might have a point. But there is clear improvement accross the board and will a cup final almost a certainty you cant possibly think Mcmanus is unsure.

    I remember him saying about a fortnight, and assumed he would have re-signed by then. But, your second line as got me concerned that it could be decided he is going home in 2 weeks? I hope not.

    I doubt Long moving to Union would have happen in Holbrooks departure was a likelihood.
    I could agree with you but then we would both be wrong.

    Considering the unbelievable pay increase long has just received, nothing would have stopped his departure Noel .

    In the League Express McManus says it’ll be done and dusted in the next week or two. He also states that Luke Thompson has assured Saints he wants to play out his contract, which suggests to me he’ll definitely be off for 2021.

    I am sure he would rather have been a head coach and got a pay increase that way. It is good he has got a better job either way.

    Good to hear on Holbrook, it’s not been sounding convincing up until now but that sounds like it’s a done deal. I think it was always likely Thompson was going to go to the NRL, at least we’ll have plenty of time to sort a replacement for him. Not sure who that will be though.

    I think the prop position is going to be key for us over the next 12-18 months. We’ll have Douglas and Amor leaving after thus year presumably and then it’s looking like Thompson after that. LMS won’t have too many years left either.

    So we are going to need a couple of signings there to go with Walmsley, Lees and Ashworth.

    Fully agree on Holbrook, it’ll be good to tie him down for another couple of years hopefully and let him build on what he’s done so far. He needs some major silverware this year to silence any doubters but I’m confident he’ll do it.

    How do we know that he hasn't already signed but they're just delaying the announcement?
