There is one big parallel with the appointment of Stevie Mac. He has become a teacher and is now wanting a part-time coaching appointment. Experienced assistant coach at Warrington, coach of England A and Cumbria, an impressive cv for a new coach at Championship level. We may have just landed a top man due to his personal circumstances, Warrington link aside. Time to cheer up.
Totally agree. Obviously he'll be promoting Swinton Lions in the school where he is teaching and others nearby with perhaps the opportunity to get Martin Moana and some players (or coaches from Folly) in the local schools from time to time.
Let's give this experienced coach a chance and get behind him and the lads that pull on a Swinton shirt and have shown a lot of commitment over the last few weeks under the stewardship of Watto and Marlon.
Hopefully the Club have communicated in depth with Watto and Marlon regarding the appointment and why Watto hasn't got it and they can work well together to the benefit of the Lions.
I would definitely expect an increase in the number of Warrington youth players in the short-term as Chambers will obviously know these players and their capabilities better than anyone.....in any line of work where you have the power to hire and fire the tendency is, where they are required, to bring in the good people you know as it's a damn sight easier than looking elsewhere when you've already got enough on your plate learning a new role etc.
