Will Madge be returning to Super League?


Recommended Posts


That would be a mistake , he’s the best coach they’ll get . The players there need to take a long hard look at themselves , they’re letting their coach and their fans down . Madge isn’t responsible for pathetic tackling , insipid attack , halves failing to do the job , throwing the ball into touch , soft mentality on the pitch etc etc . Today was a disgrace , manly were just running through them .If you keep sacking coaches maybe the problem is elsewhere - below the coach and above him , like whoever is in charge of the roster . There seems real issues there beyond Madge . Throwing him under the bus might make others feel better but it will it change things ?

Any team with James Roberts, Luke Brooks and Joey Leilua in it is asking for trouble.

Well indeed , I can’t think guys like Roberts and Leilua are Madge’s type of player . Jimmy the Jet today had a bit of a Western tbh and Elkie Brooks would do a better job at 7

Hopefully his time has gone. He was a malign influence on the way the sport was played over here and we're still struggling to emerge from the wrestling era.

From what we've heard about his time at Souths Maguire would have a limited shelf life anywhere - he works players to the bone.  At Souths his approach paid off from the go, but even there it waned and they weren't very good at the back end of his time there.  As you say the Tigers culture is awful, and there may just have been too many players happy to cruise along for a coach like Maguire to succeed without a lot of player turnover.
