    But ^, Coote is just as important as Holbrook and he's staying which means our attacking plays will still be the same. For me if Holbrook stays it could announced tomorrow or maybe if or when we make the Challenge Cup Final. Looking back at Holbrook's quotes in mid April he said I have no future plans for 2020. all we can hope for is that he gives us another year and leaves with some sort of legacy success.

    Hopefully the club make an announcement this week. Just a few weeks ago Justin's contract was apparently done and dusted.

    Lets be realistic, if Holbrook gets a good enough offer he will go and no-one should blame him.
    Not once does that article have McManus saying Barba wasnt leaving. Hardly the same as saying a contract for Holbrook is a formality (or words to that effect) which is what was supposed to be in League Express a few weeks back.

    I like this quote from Eamon



    “(Ben Barba) he is a lovely lad, very quiet, very humble and is very much a family man who keeps himself to himself.”

    McManus should have mentioned Ben Barba (UK Version) only.

    I raised my eyebrows myself when I read that earlier.

    But that was exactly the Ben Barba we all saw over here.

    A Jekyll & Hyde character it would certainly seem - although there's a big dose of him being susceptible to bad influences.
    I f*cking hate wi*an.

    Incidentally, I've heard from someone I know who doesn't get many scoops but I don't recall ever being wrong, that Holbrook is staying.

    Hopefully he continues his run of correct snippets.

    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

    Canterbury currently have only 4 players contracted for season 2021, another 7 will be added by the beginning of 2020. It is currently estimated that for Season 2021, Canterbury have in excess of $8m of a $9m and change Salary Cap to spend, with the 7 for 2020 to be added it will still be $6m and some to spend for 2021. Most agree for Season 2021 Canterbury are sitting on the biggest SC warchest the game has seen since the introduction of the SC and are already targeting the biggest names off contract for 2021- Latrell Mitchell, very big chance of getting. The Turbo bros, some chance, maybe (loyalty and the Northern Beaches is a big thing for them, but if it's about money Canterbury won't be beaten).

    Ryan Papenhauzen, Jai Arrow, Joseph Manu, are just a handfull of other names (including some from Super League) that are well within their budget.

    The next Canterbury coach will have an opportunity to basically buy a Premiership ready squad of his choice for 2021 at a club with deep pockets and excellent facilities.

    Which is why when Andrew Hill (Canterbury CEO) flew to Britain last week, if he offered Justin Holbrook the job as most think he did - Justin Holbrook will be the next Canterbury coach.

    and btw, don't blame Justin Holbrook if he does.

    He grew up a Canterbury supporter, played as a Canterbury Junior, coached lower grades at Canterbury.

    He'll be going home to his dream job.

    You'd do the same.

    You can quote all those names but have they signed?
    How did your recent big name buys work out?

    The club's needs more than a revolving door on the coaches office

    Technically nobody in The NRL can be even approached until 1 year before their contract ends, which for Season 2021 is Dec 1 2019 (NRL have Nov 30 to Nov 30 contracts). And really I don't think anyone will be seriously approached until the new coach starts so he can have a big say on 2021 recruitment, so that won't be until... when does the SL season finish?

    Day after that.

    I believe he will go by the way, but I think he would benefit from another year.

    No man is bigger than the club.


    Ask Ellery, Bazil, KC, Scully, Joynty, Longy, Jamie Lyon, Barba etc etc.

    With respect to all those coaches and players, we saw success with them and without them. Life (and Saints) goes marching in!

    Justin has changed our club for the better let's just hope he will stay longer and if he chooses to go home let him go with our blessing.The only constant at a sports club are the fans and from time to time the coach and fans are in sync this is one of them let's enjoy it while it's here.

    I hope he stays and puts trophies on the sideboard before he goes home with all our best wishes.
