I dont think any decision will be made until the election.
We are actually caught in a bit of quandary regarding the head coach role. In one hand SJ has been able to cultivate a positive environment, with the players having self belief, motivation and the intent to win. SJ has also been around wont probably expect a thumping compensation package, shouldnt have acclimatization issues, and will probably not give us the problems more established coaches like Stuart Law and Richard Pybus gave us.
On the other hand a tougher coach like Whatmore will instill a lot more discipline and authority. Rules regarding what shot to play, about building partnerships, about not conceding wides and no balls. About not dropping catches. They are also likely to take a front seat role in actively helping a player improve his individual ability and performance. Sth Siddons also used to do with our batsmen.
