Great. He is a great coach with a bright future.

A strong Academy is very important to us and he has proven his ability at this level.

Looks like we are investing heavily in the Academy and I am all for it.

Both Mark and Digger coached at MK while they were still playing and getting their coaching qualifications, no idea if that goes outside the salary cap before anyone asks. They were both very popular and really showed an interest above and beyond just turning up to coach. Great to see him getting on and hopefully developing the next generation of players.

When reading Boydies comments in the Chron article why do I get the impression that he has a longer term strategy than just the next two years?

Agreed.

And it would not surprise me, given their performance to date, if the board have not tasked him with preparing Dowson, Vestey, et al, to take over once he decides to depart.

In olden days they called it succession planning!
