    As he still has close ties with our club would like to see Mal Meninga as a future coach, Holbrook will be hot property in a couple of years if we win trophies this and next season. My gut instinct with Holbrook is that he has a 2 year extension but with a get out clause in his favour., the latter bit causing the delay in the announcement.

    If McManus has stated it will be done, then you would tend to believe that. I would like to see us extend Thompson, if the Aussies do want him I don't think paying a transfer fee would put them off.

    Honestly i'm not sure about Meniga as a coach,he hasn't done to well when it comes to coaching a club.

    His first part-season he led us from no-confidence no-marks to the play-off SF, where we only lost away to the runaway league leaders in the final seconds due to Morgan having a brainfart

    Last season was a killer, and we changed our gamestyle disastrously, as well as looking shattered by season's end (and our star player had put his cue on the rack by then also)

    I think he'll have learned big lessons.

    After taking over a negative uninspiring team and doing what he has done i cannot believe any one could say Holbrook has not been anything but a resounding success. More please.

    Not just on the field. He's apparently had a large input into the massive improvement in connectivity and relationship between club and fans in general.

    If a team kick an early penalty to go 2-0 up, they are Justin front.

    If McManus wants to showcase the Holbrook new contract then next week against the goons at a packed house is the time and place to do it.

    If he is going to go I just wish they'd keep it under wraps until the season is over and let us enjoy whatever success we may have.

    It would be tricky to keep it under wraps till the end of the season as if nothing is signed then that pretty much tells you all you need to know.

    Far better to say it early. The goons did it early last year and it did not stop them winning.

    My understanding is that Holbrook is leaving. Long was aware of this and asked to be considered for the post. He was told that wouldn’t happen and is why he accepted a position in union. Not sure how true, just what I have been told

    I know it can't happen these days, it was just my preference.
    It happened with Saints when Anderson, Lyon at al were leaving, it didn't stop us winning but It takes the gloss off the occasion

    This is correct and it's what I was talking about on the long thread about us not wanting to go down the club legend route again. Apparently Long had a meeting with Rush and Holbrook before he made his decision on leaving and he was told he wouldn't be considered for the job.

    Last I heard Justin was looking at the titans job but that might have changed with a better opportunity at the dogs. I really don't think we'll see him here next season myself.

    How about Shaun Wane as your next coach?

    About as much chance as Wigan ever having their own ground!

    If it is announced before the end of the season that he is leaving, do my fellow saints fans think it might affect the team in the big games looming?

    It might inspire them to win something before he leaves.

    I don’t think it would make any difference as the players would likely know either way.

    I’ve thought this would happen and said on a thread at the start of the season that if he really wanted to stay he would have sorted his contract at the end of last season. Is there also a chance Marshall was appointed assistant as a contingency incase Holbrook left and we wanted someone who knew the team? I can only really see the contenders being him or someone from Australia again as there are no SL coaches who are good enough. However, was there not something, in League Express, about McManus saying a new contract for Holbrook was all but done?
