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...

Re: Wests Tigers name five co-captains

I actually think it is a decent idea Lawrence was the choice of many on here, but to be honest he is not even guaranteed to be in the 17 each week let alone starting.
Personally i would have made Lawrence Club captain and Taylor/Reynolds co captains with Taylor doing the talking to the refs

Re: Wests Tigers name five co-captains

Does anyone else get the feeling Cleary is lying in bed at night thinking "Benji is looking like our best half, Benji looks to be our best leader, what the hell do i do with this"? Its my gut feeliing that Benji is putting great pressure on Ivan. And if the rumour is true that Reynolds will play so...

Re: The Contenders: Centre

In the other article on Fonua this is quoted. ‘He's locked in a battle with the likes of Esan Marsters and Malakai Watene-Zelezniak for a spot on Ivan Cleary's left side and will be putting his best foot forward in Saturday's trial against North Queensland in Cairns.’ Does that guarantee a spot for...

ive been told both milne and marsters have been training exclusivley at right center, so i dont think they'll be the center combo. kev naquima likely left center. I still shudder at the thought of Kev in the centres. He needs to be on his game from day dot or punted. No leeway for him to 'improve' ...
