“What does that framework look like, is there Brett Kimmore in the picture? Benji Marshall, Robbie Farah are such people?

Rotfield said both Farah and Marshall were “really good options,” but Paul Kent questioned how they had been given so much coaching experience.
“They are learning well … Robbie is involved in the system as an assistant and Benji is on the streets. You have to start somewhere. ”
Meanwhile, NRL 360 host Braith Anasta, who has played 31 games for the Tiger, believes the three will form a strong alliance.
“It seems like a good balance for me – experience and former players who love the West Leopard and can learn one of the best,” he said.
