Brian McD apparently claimed on BBC Radio London yesterday evening that he is staying put in London.

There seems to be a consensus forming around the idea that the club is in talks with Potter (presumably about money), given that he seemingly has no other firm plans, and that Brian would cost a fee as he still has year's contract at Quins (assuming he would be prepared to leave anyway), this would seem to be the most likely scenario.

You are probabaly right here. I can quite understand why David Hughes would be after a fee bearing in mind the

money he is losing as a matter of course. Honest enough to admit I hoped Mc would be off though.

Now this decision has been made though its a case of getting on with it.

I live in hope rather than expectation though.

According to BBC London;

The reality is I'm contracted to Quins, and the reality is I'm not going to Bradford

Didn't hear it myself by Neil Barraclough posted it on twitter not long since.

Tell us all something we already knew I hear you cry.

So to what do I think about ex Bradford player McDermott coming back to Odsal, well he's done a decent job at Harlequins with limited resources.

He's a grafter who can work well in difficult times which we now face at Odsal and to boot he is probably the best English candidate out of the names that were thrown around last month and that is what we need to take the club forward.

The only problem I forsee is that in Brian McDermott we have a signing that is unlikely to excite the fans as an appointment of being made head coach at Odsal.

I just hope he brings in James Lowes back as his assistant.

Looks like your wrong for a change mick.. :D

So which week was the original poster referring to?

The one just ended! Apparently there will be some sort of an announcement this week. I don't have anything official from The Guardian or anything though! ;)

Latest from Ryan Duckett on Radio Leeds 16:30 news 13/7: "The process of appointing the new coach is almost at an end and we hope to be making an announcement in from a couple of days to a week".

So still a bit open ended then!

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.

Lee St Hilaire, McNamara's former assistant who has been put in caretaker charge for the rest of the season, said several players had been happy to see the England coach leave.
How can they leave the story there? Give us more information!
