Ricky Stuart and Graham Annesley were worlds apart two months ago.
Now they're reportedly sitting together on the NRL's newly minted innovations committee.
The Canberra Raiders coach was highly critical of Annesley in his role as NRL head of football during the season.
Stuart told The Canberra Times back in July either the NRL's controversial bunker should go or those in charge of it - like Annesley.
He doubled down following Jack Wighton's sin-binning in the Raiders' win over the New Zealand Warriors in September.
When asked if he would be questioning the decision with Annesley during the week, Stuart responded with an emphatic no.
"I won't be raising any points, I'll be doing my review, and they'll do their review, go into hiding with their results and it'll be game on next week," he said.
"Graham Annesley is a really nice man, he's been in the game for a long time, but in regards to rugby league, Graham Annesley and myself, we are planets apart."

They've since talked and made up, and now they're set to be colleagues in not only reviewing recent NRL rule changes, like the highly popular six-again rule, but coming up with ideas to improve the game for the 2021 season.
ARL commissioner Wayne Pearce will lead the committee, where Stuart will be joined by good mate and Melbourne coach Craig Bellamy, NSW Origin players Damien Cook and Luke Keary, referee Matt Cecchin, NRL chief executive Andrew Abdo and ARL Commission chairman Peter V'landys.
They'll reportedly meet next Monday where they'll review the 2020 season.
"I'm asking people to come along with an open mind," Pearce told the Sydney Morning Herald.
"We'll review what worked this year, what didn't work and look at how we can make the game an even better product if we need to do anything.
"Our management team will be getting a lot of information together that we will look at on the day.
"The idea is we go into next year looking at what worked and take that forward, as well as the things that didn't work so well and what we need to tweak."
