Surely you have a replacement locked in before sacking madge otherwise what a shambles. 

If it’s not Ciraldo than why bother sacking him now. 

absolute shambles.

It seems to me that Ciraldo is probably the best candidate. Hopefully they were able to get him sorted and that has led to Madge's sacking. Otherwise we are royally...

Ciraldo - Tigers

Wolfe - Warriors

Fittler - Bulldogs 

I think that’s how it will go too. And I wouldn’t be surprised to see Burton here at some stage. Just a hunch.

Does Tim Sheens and the Tigers’ clear mandate for a development coach put Panthers assistant Cameron Ciraldo at the front of the queue to take over from Michael Maguire at Concord?

That is the question Tigers fans will be asking after the Tigers made it clear they want a coach that can develop their young core of talent over the next three year period.

Paul Kent believes that Sheens’ mandate points to Ciraldo being the Tigers’ No.1 target.

“It has been a really confusing time for the club, but thankfully they are now starting to be a little bit decisive and that’s where I think the club are trying to move towards,” Kent said on NRL 360.

“They are doing the right thing about taking their time to try and find a coach, but there is a bit of a battle on now.

“Let’s remember Cameron Ciraldo has got that one out, one back position. The development coach points to Ciraldo.

“That said though there are two other clubs who are now looking for a head coach for next season, so there is going to be a bit of a race here and a little bit of jockeying between the three clubs to get the right guy.

“I dare say Canterbury have decided on their man. They are just keeping it quiet at the moment, but certainly with the Warriors and the Tigers it is wide open.”

Kent was alluding to Brad Fittler taking the Bulldogs job after his Origin commitments are finalised this year, which is a rumour that is gathering momentum.

However Paul Crawley warned Ciraldo how quickly coaching careers can go off the rails if they don’t get the support they need from a club to build a strong roster.

“There has to be a trust issue for a coach coming to that club because there has been five coaches walk through the door and walk out in the last decade,” Crawley said.

“So how do you convince Cameron Ciraldo that this is the joint for you to trust your career on?

“Because if it goes wrong as we have seen with Trent Barrett it can be all be over so quickly.”

Anasta believes Ciraldo signing with the Tigers can work, but it will require him to trust the plan Sheens is putting in place.

“He needs to really trust the place that they are going to change and that Sheens is the right man,” Anasta said.

“That’s the one difference that the other coaches haven’t had,” Kent said of Sheens’ involvement.

“It’s a big difference having Sheens overseeing,” Anasta said.

“He has had success. He has won a premiership. He loves the club.

“If he has got Ciraldo coming in I am sure he wouldn’t overpower a developing coach like Ciraldo. He would let him have his freedom and at the same time offer words of wisdom along the way. I think he would be a great mentor for Ciraldo to come into first grade and coach.

“I really think it is a great fit. I see it happening. I really do.”

However, Dave Riccio revealed the Panthers won’t give up Ciraldo without a fight and have offered him a flexible contract to keep him at Penrith as long as they can, before he takes a head coaching role, which could entice Ciraldo to wait for a better opportunity.

“The interesting development is that the Panthers haven’t given up on keeping Cameron Ciraldo,” Riccio said.

“Let’s remind ourselves that Cameron is 37, so you are stepping into a job like the Tigers or the Bulldogs. I’m happy to rule out the Warriors. Ciraldo won’t be at the Warriors. He won’t be making the trip like Browny to New Zealand.

“But the Panthers haven’t given up to the point they have offered Cameron and his management this contract structure of which he chooses the end date as the assistant to Ivan Cleary.

“Stay for 12 months if you want. Stay for two years. Stay for three or four. We want you here. They believe in him. Just take your time.

“But if you spend another 12 months at the Panthers suddenly maybe the Knights pop up. maybe Saints.”

Crawley agreed that there could be better opportunities for a first time NRL head coach than the Tigers.

“The Knights are in a better position than the Wests Tigers,” Crawley said.

“The Dolphins is another option that certainly more than likely is going to come his way.”

Anasta questioned whether Sheens’ development coach mandate rules Shane Flanagan out as a potential Tigers coach.

“What that did suggest from Sheens is that Flanagan is no chance right?” Anasta asked.

“Is he a development coach?”

Kent countered that Flanagan has a history of turning the Sharks from 14th where the Tigers currently find themselves to premiership winners, which is no mean feat considering it was Cronulla’s first and only title in their history.

“He took over the Sharks when they were 14th,” Kent said.

“He took them from 14th all the way to a premiership. There are very few coaches anywhere in the game and even some of the great coaches can’t take a team from 14th to first.

“I think he is in the hunt.”

A man who ticks three vital boxes shapes as the dark horse in the race for the Wests Tigers coaching job following the sacking of Michael Maguire.

While the usual suspects like Penrith assistant Cameron Ciraldo, St Helens coach Kristian Woolf and out of work coaches Shane Flanagan and Paul Green have been mentioned, there is support growing for former Cronulla mentor John Morris.

Morris has shown he can get teams to the finals - something no Tigers coach has managed in over a decade - he is close to the club's head of football Tim Sheens and he is a former Tigers player.

Morris is currently working as Jason Demetriou's assistant at South Sydney.

"He's a guy who is well regarded in the club and will come into consideration for sure," a Tigers source told Wide World of Sports.

Ciraldo looms as the Tigers' first choice - but he is unlikely to leave his job as Ivan Cleary's right hand man at Penrith for the struggling Tigers.

I'd be ok with John Morris - I thought he did a good job at the Sharks. Also, I could be wrong but isn't Sheens quite tight with the mole?

They have known each other a long time, not sure on the relationship though.

The problem I have with Morris is his lack of drawing power. We really need a coach who can attract key players for us - and he doesn't fill me with confidence.

Yeah, I’m thinking Morris might be the target. Didn’t get the recognition at the Sharks.
