Dragons Get Ryles for Free as Roosters Lose Patience

Ben H / 26 May 2023

The Sydney Roosters have reportedly lost patience with Jason Ryles and have told him they want him gone.

The Roosters’ defensive coach has been negotiating with St George Illawarra for six weeks, and the Sydney Roosters are no longer prepared to tolerate those protracted negotiations.

Dragons Won’t Need to Pay to Get Ryles

According to Jimmy Brings, Roosters main man Nick Politis has informed the defensive coach’s agent George Mimis he is free to look for a new coaching post for his client, as he was granting the coach an immediate release.

Mimis was told that the Rooster won’t ask for a release clause to be met or a transfer fee to be paid if a team wants to appoint Ryles.

When Ryles joined the Roosters in 2021, reports said his contract was until the end of 2024.

That means the coach will be released from the club with more than a year left on his contract.

The Roosters Will Promote from Within

The Roosters have decided to cut ties with the $1.04 favourite for the Dragons’ job as abruptly as they did because they believe they have been misled.

The club puts a lot of importance on accountability and Ryles’ protracted negotiations with the Dragons, which are finally getting close to completion, are seen as slightly disrespectful.

The Roosters were considered a transit club for players back in the 1990s and are unwilling to go down that road with their assistants.

Heaps of aspiring coaches would be willing to learn from a coaching legend such as Trent Robinson, but the club will reportedly look for Ryles’ successor within its ranks, as both Jake Friend and Boyd Cordner are in line for a promotion.

So, after Ryles’ departure, the Roosters’ backroom staff will consist of Trent Robinson as head coach and Brett Morris and Matt King as assistants. Friend and Cordner will get greater responsibility and will work with the NRL team.
