Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

The longer we stick to our guns, the worse it’s going to look for Penrith. Stay ruthless. Agree 100%. Our season is gone Surely Nathan will struggle this weekend. They tried to humiliate us by thinking they couuld take from us and we’d give Ivan a hearty handshake on the way out the door. That was ...

Re: Ivan Cleary addresses players as Wests Tigers discuss compensation option

Well the other alternative is that we don't budge and Nathan comes to play with his father at the WT on an extended deal.
Don't really hear Nathan very committed at Penrith either past this year.

Gus may looses big time and the big winners will be the Cleary family budget.

Re: The Ultimate Power Play - NO DEAL

Looks like Gus is enjoying gambling with other people's money. He has slowly dismantled Penrith the last 12 years with little in the bank. Wonder what happens if Cleary goes to Penrith and his son losses form. Gus will sack em both. You obviously don’t have any idea of the strength of Penrith as a ...

Re: Justin Pascoe a good leader?

Pascoe needs to hold out for player and money compensation if he is to go early. And it must hurt Gus forcing him to gamble on exchanging key players which lessen the impact of his wins thereby compromisising his position at Penrith if he dosent deliver. That way he may also give in and we may keep...

Surely Ivan would want to see one of his rebuilds to actual fruition?
Ivan made a huge mistake in 2011 leaving the Warriors who made the GF in all 3.
Maybe will learn from it.

Re: Chee Kam

Can't fault his steady improvement though.
Often get a feeling when his in possession he may set something up.
Likewise with Sue very much improved. Has changed his lines and these days I look forward to seeing him come on for his go forward.

Re: Farah's Last Hurrah

There’s a strong chance the only reason Farah has looked good has been because he hasn’t been playing every week and so is relatively fresh. Playing week in and week out st 35 is a big ask. We need to be looking towards Liddle anyway. Farah can’t be a mentor playing 80 minutes every week. If he goe...

Re: A clearer picture

One of the things evident about this competition is how close the teams are. As much as I'm enjoying Parramatta being last, a fair minded spectator would understand they're not playing as badly as their position suggests. Same for all the bottom teams and you only need to be 5% off you game to suff...

Re: HIAs

Player welfare must come 1st but we are not as aggressive re this compared to others and it has cost us.
Thinking about it I feel the disruption from the Hiss from last week took the edge of our performance. Shame for season to end this way. Don't get the breaks.

Re: **Live Game Thread**

Canterbury played well and the difference between top and bottom of the table teams is not huge. What a downer this was for us. Must admit never believed Warriors or Penrith would miss out and Brisbane looked the side that didn't deserve to be there and watching them get them home last night as has ...

If Brisbane lose tonight and we beat Souths its on.
And with the players we have added we are a better balanced team.

Re: An Embarrassing Bunch Of Bumbling Bafoons!

What’s funny is we will probably bounce back and fluke a win against the dragons. This team is frustrating I agree with this being a big chance. Sunday night at Wests Ashfield I raised this while speaking to a couple of the players while they were signing the poster and they seemed upbeat. Dropped ...
