David Gower

Just watched the interview with David Gower...WoW!

I am not sure of his coaching credentials but he nailed the questions with comprehensive, articulate and intelligent answers.

I think he has a career in the media or as an administrator when he finally retires.

  • I think he has already been offered a position by the club when he retires, player welfare or development, something like that.

  • He’d be a good trainer to come on the field with drinks and handing advice like Craig Fitzgibbon used to do or Allan Langer. 

    • Your vision for excellence is amazing P&B, no doubt your career would involve facilitation of corporate culture and development.

  • Gower will be at the Parramatta after his career is finished to help junior development pathways and player career management, player wellbeing ect.

  • Gower is not looking for coaching roles. He is looking at Administration with a view to becoming a COO or CEO.  We are so very lucky to have him with us and could do worse than give him opportunities. 

    • General Manager Football would be another objective FH and Mark O'Neil and him may work close together.

      • Excellent. The added bonus is that Dave genuinely loves the club. It’s a nice change now that when players get to the Eels, they never want to leave ! 

  • Wizard David is a qualified electrician

  • It has been said quietly some time ago that DG would be offered some position with the Eels when he retired. He has good qualifications and may be seeking more this year as well. He would be a good acquisition into the Eels administration.

  • The bloke could walk into a reserves coach position at retirement and no doubt be a NRL coach very quickly.

    He just knows the game and has so much to offer.

    A very articulate and smart man.
