He might be the nicest bloke in the world but results matter above all else.

I hope our next coach is hired from within, as Ricky/current staff have created an excellent culture within the club (one which was rotten prior) and I’d like to see it maintained.
I don't see us having a "next coach" any time soon. If/when it does occur it will be because of Sticky deciding to give it away completely, in which case he may start preparing his successor. Or it will be due to complete breakdown in culture, in which case it will require somebody new from outside the current organisation.
I'll bet you now, our next head coach after Ricky will be Sam Williams.

Sounds good. What's the wager? Winner chooses loser's avatar?

Tracey is a hooker. I think there is one thing we can all agree on and that is we don't need ANOTHER hooker on the bench!!
Tracey can play multiple positions though its debatable about what his best one is. Thing is he can cover many spots through hooker, halves or backs. Raiders don't have anybody like this in our top 30 and its very handy to have one of these 'swiss army knife' players in the extended squad. Looking at other clubs you have Tyrone May (Panthers), Nico Hynes (Storm), Will Smith (Eels), Connor Watson (Knights), Ben Hampton (Cowboys) etc. in the top 17. None of them are good enough at one position to gain a permanent starting spot. You can still chuck them in almost anywhere at a pinch if needed.
Shark's have reaped the benefit of Tracey this yr. Has played half, centre, wing and hooker this yr - mostly injury/HIA related
My apologies. Connor Tracey is playing centres in the game tonight.

I might have been getting confused with another hooker called Tracey. But the lesson in that case was still the same. There is no point having three hookers on a bench if you can’t maintain a strong middle that can provide stiff defence for a full 80 mins.

Why not? I didn't even really choose my own avatar.... but when it comes to yours, I'm sure I can find something mortifying!

You're thinking of the right guy, I believe, but hooker he is not. He is another half converted.
Played wing in the end, coz Dugan was out.
