A hot take, especially as the only thing I’ve read about this is the couple of posts here… but this Benji thing might work out
Ciraldo is well credentialed but is waiting for the “good” job… that may never come - seriously he’s can’t miss because he won’t take his shot. Even then, a lot of highly regarded lower grade and assistant coaches in the NRL fail.
So with little other options why not get the guy who actually wants to be there, understands the club/culture, and give him a couple of years mentoring under Sheens. Then Benji takes over in 2025, Sheens retires or lurks in the background like Phil Gould did over Cleary at Panthers initially, and everyone lives happily ever after as the Tigers win the comp in 2029 and provide NSW with 7 Origin players (the coach is Robbie Farah).
