There is a reason most clubs won't go near Flanagan.
He won a premiership and 50% of his time at the club they were illegally fielding a team for one reason or another and when he was suspended he was still ignoring the rules.
Dragons went with Anthony Griffin ahead of him as a head coach. Even they weren't that desperate. Maybe they should have been!
You're probably right. But, the Knights need to do something.
It's been 21 years since their last Premiership.
There's been reasons for earlier struggles (the 3 spoons were basically a result of financial mismanagement - thanks Tinkler), but the team includes a couple of current SOO rep players, as well as a few ex-rep players.
It's obvious that they need an experienced halfback who can manage the attack and drive the team around the park.
Not sure how many are available - look at what Chad brought to the Cowboys.
There's talk of shifting Ponga into 5/8, but IMO he's better as fullback and brings an x-factor to the attack.
Clifford is passable as a 5/8, but can't control the team's attack.
