Should really have been offered the job after Steve McCormack's departure.
Thoroughly deserves the opportunity to take charge of the Lions - quality player, quality man, should make the grade as coach.

I hope this true, very good signing for me and a top coach. All the best Watto

Too much positivity in this thread so ..........does that mean we have no scrum half?
For once looks like we all agree!
Or does it mean we only have a scrum half?
Would think he may need to take a back seat to coach.
I don't mind stealing bread from the mouths of decadence.

League Express have been hinting that this is the way it would go for a couple of weeks now and should it prove to be true then Watto would have my support too even though I'm disappointed Gary Chambers hasn't had a longer run with us. I'd just like things to be settled quickly one way or another and move on to recruitment of players and knowing our "home" venue for next season.
I understand Ian Mort is back from Australia after top scoring with Dapto Canaries thanks to his kicking skills. I'd be happy to see him back in blue and white with us again if he fancied it.
It's interesting that Barrow have opted for an inexperienced coach in Anthony Murray who turned out for us as a player at one time I believe - not that I really remember him. It seems he also coached at East Lancashire Lions and Eccles at one time.

Anthony coached Eccles to the second division title. He has been coaching Millom (Barrow) for the last 2 or 3 seasons, but he is based in Wigan. I recommended him for the South Wales Scorpions job when they last advertised but he wasn't considered. Any player who can't take discipline won't be staying and I hope he does well at Barrow. Hes a good, 100% honest man.

Or is my memory failing me?
Does anyone know if he has now?

Ian has my vote. He is a leader on the field,possibly be player/coach used as and necessary. Lets get him appointed and get some players signed up.

Ian Mort back at fullback and Jordan Burke at scrum half. Now that would be interesting if we could sign both.

. Depends on how many are used
At this moment nobody knows for dual registration but I personally think it's a massive thing for a club s with tight budgets with low support fan base not meaning it in a detrimental way to lion Supporters it can help massively throughout the year
