The 2019 NRL season is set to be a “make or break” time for some coaches, with a number under pressure on the back of a poor season.
It’s also going to be a huge year for coaches looking to prove a point in their first season at their new club.
Here are five coaches who need to get their sides firing in 2019.
1. Brad Arthur (Parramatta Eels)
No coach will be under the microscope more than Arthur if their team is in poor form.
Arthur will be certainly feeling the heat after receiving his first wooden spoon as a coach and Parramatta’s 14th, especially after guiding the side to an impressive semi-finals berth the previous year.
The Eels’ once potent attack whimpered last year without their Fijian flyer Semi Radradra, scoring fewer points than any other team in the comp.
Into his sixth year at the helm, ‘BA’ needs to rectify their old razzle-dazzling ways to get the Eels faithful back on their feet again in their brand new stadium.
