We’re still no closer to knowing who’ll coach the Blues in 2018; or – in the case of the Bulldogs – who won’t.
However, those decisions are nearing, with Fairfax reporting that board meetings will be held in the coming weeks to decide the futures of both coaching positions.
The NSWRL will meet on Friday, at which they’re expected to decide whether or not to open the job up to coaches with NRL affiliations. That decision will have enormous flow-on effects, potentially opening the job up to more well-credentialed applicants.
The Bulldogs, on the other hand, will meet next week, and the results of their ‘internal review’ are expected to be revealed, and a decision on the future of coach Des Hasler finalised.
