LeagueFreak backs calls for Cowboys and Paul Green to go their separate ways

Rugby League expert and podcaster LeagueFreak has backed Andrew Ferguson’s agreeance with Laurie Daley regarding North Queensland coach Paul Green that suggests that he should leave the club that he won a Premiership with back in 2015.

Andrew Webster suggested recently that Green needs a new challenge and a change would benefit both parties.

“You talk to other coaches around the game and Paul Green to me looks like Michael Maguire did in his last couple of seasons at Souths,” Andrew Webster said on radio recently.

“It just seems like he needs a change.”

Former New South Wales State of Origin coach Laurie Daley agreed wholeheartedly with Webster’s suggestion, stating, “I think you are right it just looks as though something is not right up there at the Cowboys."

"Whether it is the players not getting along with the coach or his ideas have gone a little bit stale and they are just not responding. But they need a sharpen-up somewhere and I don’t know where that is going to come from.”

Rugby League historian Andrew Ferguson backed up his recent tweet about Paul Green, after the coach complained about the officiating in their recent loss to the Wests Tigers in Round 20, which has put their finals hopes in jeopardy.

“Green has got Jason Taumalolo in his side among a number of current and past Origin players and cannot get them up into the top 8. And to make matters worse, he blames his inability to get his side to win on the referee’s.”

Star of the podcast Fergo and The Freak, LeagueFreak joined in the discussion to say “I agree with everything you have to say on this issue Andrew. I think his time is just about done.”

“After such a poor season with so many representative players, the club has to look forward with a different coach.”
