Not for me CJ. There’s no doubt that he has had an excellent playing career but he is unproven as a coach and we need someone with experience to get the best out of our current squad.

Denis Betts was also a great international player but was IMHO a poor coach.

He didn't have a clue about the championship? I don't get that, it's still the game of rugby league, just a lower level.

It's a tough one.

Wasn't Purtill the coach with Championship experience we were looking for?? That didn't work.

The club tried a strategy of signing players with Championship experience rather than SL cast-offs, which was sound in principle, but that hasn't really worked.

I'm glad I'm not making the call because it's not easy.

It’s an important appointment this next coach, if we fail we could be around the 1200-1500 mark next season and then we will struggle even more

@wrlfcefc1989 You should watch the film Six Degrees of Separation - sometimes gossip escapes the great big wall that surrounds Widnes.

Well it is an audition for ROB tomorrow anyway.

Wonder who the 'interest from abroad' is? Or is PF saying that Wales is a foreign country 🤣 ?
