Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I don't think Lawrence would make the starting side for any team other than us. He's ok, but no better than who everyone else has. He can't break the line other than occasionally 5m out from the line. No power in attack or defence. Exactly!! In fact I think there are back rowers coming off the benc...

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

Bottom line Penriths window of winning the comp is probably the next couple of years, than it may close. So do you think they will risk a rookie in charge. I don’t think so, okay Cleary’shas not won a comp, but he is a experienced campaigner, who knows how to handle all the crap that goes with coac...

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

Manly look like they have fixed there Coaching position with Hasler to take over , announcement in 1 hour Hasler although excentic and his recent efforts as a coach would have plenty of people scratching their heads, but he will be a good fit for Manly in there present mess. When you look at the pl...

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

Ivan already had us steering towards the iceberg well before this drama with our terrible recruitment and average results. Let him be the one to hit it. Why should another coach have to clean up his mess. That's how i'd look at it if he stays.

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

You're right, they probably don't. But we need to show some fortitude instead of saying "here, you can have our coach". What happens if another club comes along and tries poaching our next coach? Do we roll over again? That will be the expectation from the next club. We have him under contract for e...

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

Is Ivan worth 1/2 mill to Penrith now they have secured Nathan? I really am not sure. Ivan might end up being a coach that has gone from one that two clubs were fighting over to one, that neither really want. I don't think Penrith will be bending over themselves to pay that sort of compensation. At...

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

Rothfiekd reported in the telegraph that WT Board has directed Pascoe not to release Cleary under any circumstances until minimum 1/2 million in compensation is paid. Excellent, the old scorched earth policy. What could possibly go wrong. No, its smart. He's contracted for 2 more years, its common ...

1st team off the coaching merry-go-round is Manly. DT reporting 3 year deal for Des Hasler.
They’re not really apart of the merry go round. They’re an island to themselves. Who they appoint won’t have a domino affect on other clubs. The merry go round is us, Brisbane, Souths and Penrith.

Glad to see round 1 won’t clash with the Download festival the weekend before.

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

Because we would be making a commitment to a Hodgson or Webster for at least 2 years. Whereas we could give Cleary his release if someone of quality comes on the market. If Bennett is off-contract for 2020 (and provided he wants to coach WT), why would Webster or Hodgson have to coach for at least ...

Not a bad way to start the year for us.

Is this confirmed?
Was reported by Fox Sports, and the draw is coming out this week, so I would say yes.

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

No one has said they are keen for him to coach. Some of us are just keen to see the club end up a marquee coach as opposed to a rookie. How is having Cleary coach WT next year gonna help us secure a marquee coach any more than having Webster, Hodgson etc coach us next year? Cold, hard fact is that ...

Rowdy will stay on, I’m pretty confident about that. Maybe 2 years, then head off to the ESL.

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

Nobody would be a downgrade from him. For this club he is about the worst possible coach now. It doesn't matter how other clubs might regard him for us he is rubbish because he's completely undermined his own position. Absolutely 100% spot on Nelson. He is the worst possible coach we can have for 2...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

Reading your other post again it says "then" instead of "than" that maybe you intended to write. That 1 letter comletely changed the context of your statement. Even still, why would we appoint a caretaker coach for 3 years? We need a committed, genuine long-term coach. Also Ivan is contracted until...
