Brett Kimmorley certainly has his work cut out for him as interim coach of the lacklustre Wests Tigers.
His new side are 13th on the ladder with 10 losses and three wins for 2022, and they cratered badly enough in recent weeks to cost Michael Maguire his job.
Over four seasons, Maguire’s old-school, crack-the-whip, tough-love approach didn’t help break the club’s lengthy finals drought. Rather, results and morale at the club seemed to deteriorate even further.
In Kimmorley’s 12-week audition as interim coach, he will bring a softer, more rewarding and supportive style of coaching to address the club’s woes.
