If the Bulldogs are actually planning to sack Des Hasler, they’d best get on with it, or they may find they’re left with no decent options to replace him with.
According to 7Sport, Super League club Warrington are scouring the Australian rugby league landscape in the hunt for a new coach, with Bulldogs favourite Dean Pay believed to be on the list, along with Rabbitohs assistant David Furner, and Panthers assistant Garth Brennan.
The report indicates that Pay – who’s believed to be the favourite for the Bulldogs gig, if it becomes available – would accept the job at Warrington if it were offered, as he seeks to progress his career.
Former Rabbitohs coach Michael Maguire had been the early favourite for the job, but it’s believed his preference is to remain in Sydney.
So at least he should still be available, if the Bulldogs ever make a decision.
