Garth Brennan's appointment in 2017 following Neil Henry's sacking for the Titans' head role was a bitter pill to swallow for the Walker brothers but now they are looking for a second chance.

Brennan's sacking after a terrible run of form by the Titans, who sit last on a 4-12 record has once again made the job wide open for a pool of potential candidates. 13 years since their debut season and only three finals appearances to the Titans' name has become a worrying trend for the club and the NRL who would love a stronger outfit for the Queensland outfit.

Ben and Shane Walker have been in charge of Ipswich for nearly a decade and after leading them to the Queensland cup in 2015 believe they should be considered as serious candidates. After finishing 7th twice, 6th once, 5th four times and one premiership - their resume is of a high-quality level and having played NRL, Shane Walker believes they are ready to coach at the highest level.

"All I can say is we are 100 per cent keen on getting the job ... we've been involved in NRL systems since we were 14" Shane told AAP.

"We haven't had the need to take the traditional route of being an assistant to someone. It was a conscious decision to set ourselves up that way."

A number of potential people to fill the role have put their hands up such as Craig Fitzgibbon of Sydney, but only time will tell which way the Titans go to turn around their clubs few years in the darkness.


  1. The Walkers throw their hats in every coaching job that comes along but that’s as far as it gets.
