MAGUIRE IS SAFE

- PHIL ROTHFIELD

WESTS Tigers have given an iron-clad guarantee that coach Michael Maguire’s job is safe.

After a terrible performanc­e in a 34-30 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday, chairman Lee Hagipantel­is directed full blame at the playing group.

“There is no change of coach on our radar whatsoever,” Hagipantel­is said.

“Madge has extended for two years. I don’t think the issue at our club is the coaching. Your patience can be tested but that first-half performanc­e on Sunday was all about effort and attitude.”
