Re: Sam Kasiano

Didn't he get ripped before his wedding a few years ago and then put the weight back on to be more effective in footy?

Re: The Bench

My take: 8 Matulino 9 Liddle 10 Packer 11 McQueen 12 Taylor 13 Eisenhuth 14 Twal 15 Sue 16 Aloiai 17 Marsters/Falise :sign: I agree with the starting pack (as likely) but I am 99% sure Benji will be on the bench Rd 1. He and ET and Reynolds can cover hooker if Liddle needs downtime and Benji can be...

Manly have officially announced the signing of Joel Thompson...
THE NRL are a joke, manly breach the cap then sign a player like him.
Aren't Manly in trouble for historical breaches rather than the current roster?

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I like Paul Kent's notion. TPA's to go....no need for them now as Salary Cap has increased so much over last 5 years or so. TPA's were originally bought in before the game could "afford" million dollar contracts and to deter players going to UK in times when they had the $$$ to splash around and Ru...

Re: Breaking News: Jarryd Hayne

They have a funny system in the US ... The cops say he has no case to answer, yet she can still lodge a civil suit and chase money in a situation which can't be proved criminally. It is a weird quirk of the legal system over here. Same thing happened to OJ Simpson. He was found not guilty in the cr...

Re: Wests Tigers Centre of Excellence

Well everyone who was poo-pooing us and our mgmt team for not being able to source funding, $5.5M not bad. I can understand Knights getting the most, we should count ourselves lucky to get so much in a crowded Sydney market. No idea how Rabbits conned almost $9M out of the government to bulldoze the...

Re: Why new Shark Seumanufagai left the Tigers

Is anyone else concerned with front row depth if packer and matelino injure we going to struggle. At the moment apart from Packer and Matulino we still have Grant, Twal, Eisenhuth, Sue, Aloiai and Felise. That is 8 players out of 30 as front row - How much depth do we need? I really like Hooth as a...

Re: Crichton to roosters

Sadly, the imbalance in the league inevitably leads to fans being disenchanted and less engaged. I am one of them. The NRL has become like the NBA & Premier League. The main difference is that at least in those leagues there is no suggestion of cap shenanigans, nor are there obvious under-handed do...

Re: Crichton to roosters

You are ruining the party....:-( They also re-signed: Ferguson, Tupou, Napa and Matterson Haha sorry to attempt some rational analysis... Yes they did re-sign .. but that wouldn't go near the 1.8 million cap increase (maybe 500k on upgrading those players at most?).. the losses and gains seem to ca...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

3 year 1 million a year deal at easts, so they will have 3 possibly 4 with Cordner on 1 million deals in 2019 How can they have 4 million dollar players and we have none but they have more cap room than us? Pretty obvious to everyone now it's TPAs? The base salaries are probably modest, with a larg...

Re: NRL agrees to review third-party agreements in a bid to end salary cap rorting

I just think it's time to stop focusing on why things might be difficult to do and work toward how we can make good things happen. You could say exactly the same thing about the current salary cap and TPAs. I'm not saying you're completely wrong, I just think the points system is fraught with dange...

Re: NRL agrees to review third-party agreements in a bid to end salary cap rorting

The other option is player ratings/values. Transparent, based on facts and no restraint of trade etc. Absolutely barra. Ive said it before a few times on this forum. Point value per player. Clubs have a quota they can fill up too. No restriction on what players can earn and it spreads the talent. P...
