    Graham to re-apply for Reds job

    The Queensland Reds will decide who will be their head coach in the next fortnight after Richard Graham was asked to re-apply for his job.

    A Queensland Rugby Union review has recommended the roles of head coach, attack and defence coach be thrown open to applicants with a panel to finalise those appointments by early next month.

    Speculation is mounting that Graham will be re-installed despite a woefully unsuccessful period at the helm of the Reds and the departures of key players Quade Cooper, Will Genia, James Horwill and James Hanson.

    There will also be a new hierarchy in the Reds' coaching structure with a general manager of high performance to be installed and elevated above the head coach.

    Hmmm....

    Hmm, interesting... was expecting something more final than this. I guess the fine print in a contract is all about interpretation.

    I would expect more information will 'come out' about what's what within this next fortnight anyway

    Starting to smell more and more like he's the bastard son of some high profile Queensland rugby identity.

    He'll apply, and likely get the job. If they were going to sack him for poor performance they would have done it outright.

    But if he applies and gets the job and the Reds have another stinker of a season, it makes sacking him for poor performance even more difficult.

    On the other hand this may be a way of getting rid of him and letting him save face by saying, after the selection process, you were not the successful candidate. It would give RG the opportunity of not putting the real reason that he is no longer at Queensland Reds on his subsequent job applications.

    That would be taking to soft option.

    He's not going to be the first coach sacked and nor will he be the last.

    What is he going to say on his application

    Attacking Coach for the Wallabies- lowest scoring rate in the history of the Earth
    Head Coach for Western Force for 18 months. 29% win record
    Head Coach for Queensland Red for 2 full seasons- 27% win record and encouraged majority of best players to seek playing elsewhere.

    The selection committee is going to say - yes lets employ him.

    Whilst I dislike dicky Graham as much as anyone remember those in glass houses.....his team beat us twice this year just think about that one.

    Some would say he's worse because he chose the tahs over the force

    Reapplying usually means there's no courage to sack him, and advertise a vacant position, but they'll dip their toe in the water and see what happens. No wonder things are a mess, sounds like the the board is weak as water.

    Unless reapplying is the board's way of appeasing public opinion by saying all candidates were interviewed and he presented the best case.

    If justice were to be served after his history in Australian rugby and specifically his tenure with the Reds, he would have been shown the door and told not to bother applying.

    That's my indicator that he'll get the job (unless a Graham Henry turns up in the recruitment process)
