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?
    I hope he hasn't done a Lenagan on us then.

    McManus also said that Barba wasn't leaving last season. https://www.sthelensstar.co.uk/news/...n-speculation/
    Lets be realistic, if Holbrook gets a good enough offer he will go and no-one should blame him.

    From what I've heard Holbrook has been weighing his options up here and back home since magic. Then that what I posted about long leaving is true. The Holbrook bit is just the last I heard on him, it didn't sound good. As H517 says it would have been done by now if he was staying and I believe we'll be looking at a replacement from Aus if he does go.

    It would hardly be a big surprise if he left, he’s changed us a club. I’m not sure how his approach would go down in Oz but it wouldn’t be our problem I guess.

    I think who I’d want to replace him to be honest.

    From what I know I think he'll take the Canterbury head coaches job & he'll leave at end of the season

    I was thinking about the situation yesterday and it's what, around 3-4 months until his contract is up / end of season. I think if he was staying it would have been announced by now. So my instinct is that he is leaving, which to me, is going to leave a massive hole and is a real shame.

    Wonder if Buddy has heard anything over there?

    I've been told that Walters will get the Gold Coast job. Don't know if he's finishing with Queensland or not?

    What do you care? Barba is yesterday's news. You must be praying Holbrook leaves, even if you won't admit it here.

    Only what Ex Parrer has read mate. But to be fair he is going to be mentioned for every job.

    I think he'd be insane to go to the bulldogs they're in an absolute mess and replacing Dean Pay wouldn't help.

    When he joined us we were disfunctional but we had a good squad, they're squad is not only rubbish but it's rubbish on big money. These players aren't going to slide away unpaid so it could take years to get a squad he can work with.

    Read this about players still getting paid fortunes even though they've left, it's a shambles

    https://www.smh.com.au/sport/nrl/rev...28-p518h2.html


    Unfortunately we know his agent is only bothered about his cut and not what's best for his client ( as Ben Barba learned) but surely even he can see another successful 12 months with Saints and he could pick his club

    Huge difference in the two scenarios.

    Barba made it not worth our while to try to pursuade him to stay by effectively stopping putting in anything other than a token effort - sometimes not even that.

    Can't say that about Holbrook and the continuing excellence of our club on and off the pitch.

    Your shower will find out about the on field bit on Friday.

    Sit down, shut up.

    Thanks for the info mate. I'll have a proper look after. It's a lass I know who lives out towards Penrith ways. She's usually pretty reliable but from what you have posted, it would appear to be a very difficult job

    They say no news is GOOD news so when it gets to 20+ pages of rumour lateral thinking and rubbish Eamon might just announce he is staying.

    Jason Demitriou will get a chance somewhere before long. He has been Bennett's assistant for a while now. Dave Fairleigh is another.

    I'm sure both were discussed before Holbrook was appointed and let's face it non of us knew much about him so it might not be someone we know

    No chance. Wigan have a better replacement coming through their reserve system....

    I suppose we just have to wait and see, and trust in Eamonn and Mike Rush to have someone in place. I would hope that, if Holbrook is to leave, he has let Saints know early enough for us to find a suitable replacement.
    Unfortunately this is the reality of sports management. Holbrook has proved his worth as a head coach and that has put him in the frame for a top job back home. This will always be the same, it's very difficult to keep a good Aussie coach for a long period.
