Yes it appears it just wasn’t renewed or extended so more of a left the club. Certainly not a sacking, just going their different directions.
Re: Willie : Mon Sep 12, 2022 12:31 pm  
It clearly wasn't for him. I do wonder whether the turnaround was due to someone else taking up the reins or the players getting their heads together. If leaving players are giving bad feedback, it was clearly never a job for Willie.

Although critical earlier in the season, I did think that the end of season flourish might have carried on into next year and he'd learned the job, but clearly not.

Those behind the scenes will know the reason for the turnaround and that might shape where we go next. If it is someone already there, fine. Matt Peet has done okay at Wigan with a similar profile behind the scenes at Wigan.

It's a strange decision.
Poching never had the chance to bring in any players and was very much left with Chester's signings, with a couple of exceptions.
Plus playing most of the season without our star player and others.
Wonder if there were any issues with our recruitment for next season or funds for new players ?

The club statement seems to suggest that it was Trinity not wanting Poching and not the other way around

Knowing Carter he’ll fetch a Hull cast off, Brett Hodgeson anybody??

It's going to be a tough gig for anyone coming in.
Going from now setting the world alight at Hull, with a full cap spend to Trinity with 25/30% ? less spend, would certainly be a "test".

It seems a little odd that Chester was given so much time and yet Willie is "let go" after one season ?

Isn't it more likely they recognise the mistakes they made with Chester and if they weren't 100% confident in Poching, decided to make a break now.

Spot on. Under achieved everywhere else he has been.
