That he doesn't even get an interview for the coaching job at the Eels.

"Sharp was reluctant to ­disrespect the former Dally M winner, but said the club was focused on appointing a ­'modern day' coach" It's a good job he didn't want to disrespect Price then.

Has Price ever been a first team coach before? If not - and I don't believe he has, then it stands to reason that they wouldn't be interested. Hardly some massive snub. Moreso, giving someone a job based on sentiment never works out well.

I'm not saying every former great player should get a head coaches job when they retire, but Rugby League should make better use of his former players who have so much to offer the game. They should be shown some respect.

It never seems to stop SL clubs giving untried Aussie assistants the head coach's job.

Why exactly?

 

They played the game, well in Prices case, and got well paid for doing so, but that doesn't mean that they have any greater insight or wisdom than those who haven't played at the same level. Garry Schofield comes to mind for example - would you place the future of RL in such hands?

The game needs to do more to try and keep former players involved in the sport. We don't want people who have played the game to automatically disappear once they hang up their boots. Rugby League Cares is doing some work around this issue.

However, just because someone played the game doesn't make them automatically the best person for any coaching, admin or media post that comes up. The sport isn't big enough to be able to carry too much dead weight, so we should always aim to get the best person for the job.

But there's only one way to know if a man is up to the task or not. Parra obviously thought they had the right man in RS. A CV as long as your arm but still couldn't get them off the bottom. Surely someone like Price deserves a shot if he has the right coaching credentials. He couldn't take a Parra any lower.

Surely cant wish that on anyone. Parra are a club in desperate need of a strong leader,

\Then againb, maybe he'll take Sinfield with him, and the world can see how average he is then

Ray Price is not a Wakey great IMO.  He was brilliant and inspirational, but he wasn't with us long enough or play in enough games to earn that title.
