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.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 !!!
