I could be wrong on the Area Hayne comes from I thought I heard Campbelltown , sorry folks for wrong info if this is the case
He did grow up in Minto and played footy out there in his early years before he played for Cabramatta.

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

Cleary is smart enough not to walk. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ When I thought he had some integrity I would have said Cleary wouldn't do that but we know that bird has flown. If I was WT and he does decide to play hardball I would: a) appoint a coach for 2019 an...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I think that's exactly what will happen. Bennett won't be here next season, he has unfinished business with the Broncos after the poor way they went out of the finals this year. Those extremely talented youngsters up there will be another year older and wiser, I think Bennett knows he has a good ti...

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

What's also bizarre is the idea that I.C all of a sudden figures out he wants to coach his son, 18 months after taking on a major role with the Tigers. Did he not have any inclination to coach N.C before this? Maybe he did but N.C spoiled those plans when re re-upped with Penrith? And bizarre x 3 i...

Let’s just hope if we get Bennett he uses his big head not his little one again.

Re: Nathan Cleary

Some of you have to stop trying to read the tea leaves everytime there's an interview with N Cleary etc. He's going to say good things about Penrith and their staff even if he plans to bigger off. Means nothing either way. In the meantime, fire up the BBQ, crack open a good bottle of bourbon and wa...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Just had a quick look at Merrin’s stats for this year and they are better than any of our forwards. I’ve watched quiet a bit of Penrith this year and I think Merrrin would be a great pick up at the right price. Not sure what the fascination with Hetherington is though. Every time I watch him I just ...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

People seem to have a problem with - players and coaches saying they will honour their contract it seems. Bit different when he was quoted by 2 seperate journalists earlier in the day saying he didn’t know if he would go and he’d like to stay in Sydney. Seems like he’s had a call from his manager a...

Re: Wests Tigers players present at venue involved in drug raids

I don’t understand how this is a story... Reynolds and Brooks were at a venue when the cops came in for a random drug search... so what? Were the players found with drugs? If not, why are we hearing about this? I agree. Although there is a part of me that wonders why the club would need to report i...

Re: Farah set to play on after agreeing to terms

The Tigers will never make the top 8 with Benjii and Farah in the top 30. Benjii can't tackle and is afraid to get tackled with the ball. He's not first grade standard and hasn't been since the first time he left the joint. No other NRL club would touch him but the fools running the Tigers sign him...

I doubt there would have been any better value options than Farah so I’m happy with that. Marshall I’m not so sure about.

Re: Salary Cap Rorting | Ideas on a Potential Solution

Paul Kent made a really good point last night Every Salary cap system that works is linked to a draft system Obviously the punishments need to be far harsher , as he said when Carlton in the AFL got done in 2002 it took them 6 years to make the finals after the punishments were invoked That’s somet...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

How exactly will you know? If we don’t sign them does that automatically mean we didn’t try? So should we just assume that the club has our back and they will talk to those blokes? We should assume that the club will assemble the strongest squad possible with the resources they have. Do you really ...

Re: Coaching circus

It would take a brave man to walk out on an NRL coaching gig if he doesn’t have another lined up, they aren’t exactly easy to come by.
