Griffin told the news - no next year - apparently walked.

Who might they have in mind - can't believe its Bazz.

Penrith have apparently offered Ivan Cleary a 4 year deal. It’s understood Ivan is considering asking for a release from Wests Tigers in the next 48 hours.

It is said they have received 12 applications overnight — including five from current NRL coaches !!!

Watching NRL360 tonight. It seems highly likely that Cleary will coach Penrith next season. I'm quite disappointed in this. I really respect Cleary and the fact Phil Gould can treat Griffin and Cleary after sacking him on a few short years ago, really gets on my goat. Also extremely disappointing for Wests/Tigers fans. He was doing good there.

I just finished watching the interview with Anthony Griffin on NRL360. I have even more respect for the man, than I originally did. He was humble and honest. Phil Gould maybe a Rugby League genius, but as a person, he is an idiot. I really do hope Cleary tells him to take a jump. I also hope he brings his son to the Tigers.

Signed on - 5 year massive deal.

Considering the flak Ben Hunt has copped - was Cleary any better ? His deal is VERY good.
