Southsydneynrl.....just wanted to check my facts before i commented

"Who is the boof-head behind this."

Well its the same boof head that brought Tony Smith to the UK to coach the Giants... the Same Tony Smith who has gone on to be so successful at the Leeds Rhinos and the same Tony Smith who will coach England to Victory over Australia in the forthcoming World Cup !!!!!!!

Must be something in the English weather.

The reason Brown applied so quickly for the
Giants post, was that he would have found
great difficulty getting a job in OZ.

SirLesB... "he is very average"...on what do you base that assumption ? He is 34yrs old, has very little coaching experience, he is largely untried and untested having only coached at StGeorge in the NRL...
He is in his sixth year as Coach of Saints so he he is hardly a rookie with nearly 6 seasons in the NRL?
The teams that the dragons have fielded for those 6 years have had names that suggest they should contest something, what have they done?
2003 Brown named Coach
2003 10th from 15
2004 5th from 15
2005 2nd from 15
2006 6th from 15

Daffy-Duck could of won at least 2 grand finals with the cattle Brown has had.
His relationship with the Dragons boss was the reason he got an extended contract, when knowone was in a hurry to grab his services anyway.
