Re: Seen enough

Poor Tyson, his treatment on this forum is reprehensible. I should not have said a word. Let's see how other clubs treat their talent ... they are welcome and nutured. And by the way they are all Queenslanders 1. Kalyn Ponga (19) - Knights 2. Brodie Croft (20) - Storm 3. Murray Taulagi (18) - Cowbo...

Re: Seen enough

After 2 trials and blending in many new faces i wasnt expecting to be slashing my wrists or jumping for joy and i am doing neither. The trials showed us exactly what we should have predicted that there is more work to be done to be consistently good.Some of our new buys have been better than expecte...

Re: The good, the decent and the bad

A couple of players stood out, namely Aloiai, Thompson and Rochow. Godinet has to start at 9 for round 1, his service and spark out of dummyhalf was noticeably better than McIlwrick and Reynolds... Matulino had a couple of decent runs and tackles but he and Packer clearly needed the run. Eisenhuth ...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I think there is a difference between the worst signing (where you ask why them) and the most disappointing (where you get your hopes up & they are terrible). Best crossover between the groups was Anasta. Anasta was having 0 runs for 0 metres games and averaging 0 beads of sweat per game at the Roo...

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

Trial form is notoriously unreliable both for players and teams.I would be surprised if the starting team this week is the same for round 1.

Re: Ivan Cleary effect takes hold at Wests Tigers

Of course he’s much further ahead then his previous clubs. He’s had it on a silver platter walking in with an entire salary cap at his disposal. No having to tread water coaching a roster somebody else put together. Probably a big factor in why he took the job. Definitely didn't have it easy when h...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Its a relevant debate about the saturation within the Sydney marketplace. I dont necessary think it is a population debate, but Brisbane has 40% the population of Sydney with 1 team compared to Sydney with 8. The ethnicity of the greater Sydney population is a greater concern in relation to the tra...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Reason being Paul Kent made a statement last night using us and the Roosters as an example and stated that if we knew what financially we were up against we’d feel more justified if the result went against us. Unfortunately showing "legal TPA" figures would only show a small part of the divide.It i...

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

Why is everyone prepared to play people out of their best positions to accommodate players that probably are not as good as them in t he first place. E.g. Lolo to centre (which he isn't) so Gamble can play Full back? Reynolds to DH (which he isn't) so Gamble can play 5/8. Brooks to DH (which he isn...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Front-loading a contract, correct me if I'm wrong, works like this: For e.g. Player 1 on a three year deal for $500k a year. So that's $1.5m over 3 years. Usually Year 1 - $500k, Year 2 - $500k, Year 3 - $500k, but front loading would go like this, Year 1 - $700k, Year 2 - $400k, Year 3 $400k... Th...
