Could mean that they're still in negociation with whoever it is's club over compensation.

Probably means that they know there are a few more pennies stuck behind the sofa, they just can't quite reach them yet.

Could be. There must be some kind of negotiation going on, whether it's wages or compo. Could be they're looking round the office for a pen to sign on the dotted line with?

iv'e said for weeks and i'll say it again. Brian McDermott will be coaching Bradford Bulls next season. when i had a meet up with some ex Army mates in London recently and we took in a Quins game. the talk amongst Quins supporters in the bar was who will take over from Brian McDermott for next season.

It's out in the public domain that we have got Mick Potter.

Great news and I for one thing that he's the man to take the Bulls forward and continue the good work done by McNamara with the young players.

Potter was supposedly unpopular at both Perpignan and especially St Helens because of his shy, withdrawn, introverted personality. (Remember when Catalans signed Kevin Walters, Bernard Guasch gushing about Walters Queensland personality was more like the Mediterranean personality?).

Is it felt at Bradford that Bradford is a place where shy introverts can thrive and be loved?

So let me get this straight...........

This is the same Mick Potter who guided Saints to their 1st trophyless season in god knows how many years and hes gonna be the Bulls saviour?

A lot of Yorkshiremen believe that when God created the world, he made it with perfect balance.
He balanced the hot areas with the cold areas. the dry areas with the wet areas.
And, in creating Yorkshire, he created the most glorious place on earth - full of majestic beauty and sporting giants.........and for balance he created....... Lancashire.

Potter is a strict disciplinarian and he will be much better than McNamara. If Orford can return to good health and form, and Menzies kicks on, I foresee Bradford making the top 8 under Potter.

If he had an English accent he would now be firmly on the scrapheap.

Yep, people are already saying it is a farce he got the job, so that example actually backs my point up, thanks.

People are happy with the failure that is Mick Potter, but are disgusted by McNamara for England.

How many English coaches have been sacked/released, and then found another top level club, yet week after week we hear about Aussie coaches being linked to top jobs over here despite the fact they have been sacked at clubs?

No, it doesn't back up your point. People may be disgusted, rightly so. But the issue is not if people are disgusted. It is whether McNamara is on the scrapheap or not. As coach of England, obviously he isn't.

My pointwas two-fold.

Firstly that English coaches rarely get another opportunity at top-level if it doesn't work out first time. McNamara actually got the England job when the Bulls were going okay and he hadn't been sacked, so not really relevant.

My other point was about fans writing them off. Fans are happy with Potter, yet if an English coach had taken over Saints and not delivered as much as him there would be uproar.

He took Catalans to the CC final, he's taken Saints to GFs, in what you could arguably call a transition period for them. Just because his team haven't been scoring 80m tries with the ball going through 13 pairs of hands, Saints fans say he's poor. I'd take his kind of poor at Odsal right now.

And when they found our shadows
Grouped around the TV sets
They ran down every lead
They repeated every test
They checked out all the data on their lists
And then the alien anthropologists
Admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every other reason
For our sad demise
They logged the only explanation left
This species has amused itself to death
No tears to cry no feelings left
This species has amused itself to death
