Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

I hope the club doesnt offer an extension, imo one isnt warranted and doing something to counteract what someone else is doing isnt the correct way these things should be done This may happen, maybe not...even if it does - unless he accepts this hypothetical extension - I doubt we will even know ab...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Penrith to offer Cleary 3 year deal, this has gone to far, we need to cut our losses. https://www.foxsports.com.au/nrl/nrl-premiership/penrith-panthers-move-to-sign-ivan-cleary-on-threeyear-deal-from-2021/news-story/e40ff7efc76ab4bd9b65a436dc7e1298?utm_source=daily_sportsmail&utm_medium=email&utm_c...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

I don't really understand the questions of integrity if a bloke like Ivan would choose to negotiate a contract w Penrith for 2021. Players do it all the time, e.g. Kalyn Ponga. You are allowed to look out for yourself years in advance and I think the challenging part is fans who call on this as disi...

Re: Nathan Cleary

Totally agree with extending ivan contract With sheens There's so many varibles Clubs in a much strong position financially now and sheens may do a lot better now. For example there a lot more people to help with cap, recruitment and admin and he could focus on coaching. What do you think about Mcg...

Re: Nathan Cleary

Actually I’ve given this a lot of thought. Since this latest challenge in the development of Wests Tigers presented itself I have been very restrained in my posts and thoughts. I’ve let it play out. I’ve reserved judgement. So, after careful consideration I have formed the opinion that we need a lo...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

who cares if Iv goeas in 2 years just let him keep building what hes been building How motivated do you think IC is going to be if he departs in two years? His eye will be closely on who Riff recruits. So you are telling me a consultant or builder or engineer with 2 years to run on his current cont...

Re: Nathan Cleary

I’m so over this s***. We have an awesome halfback - re-sign him to a long deal. Fix the roster and get some decent bloody players. Extend Ivan or piss him off. One or the other. Oh and Justin, don’t go on holidays until this is all done! I dont get this mindset...I know all the talk and theories a...

Look at the Sharks model for example - one attacking half, one organiser and then bury the rest of your money in an arse-kicking forward pack.
Except for the other $1.4 million spent on Val Holmes and Josh Dugan...
Better than spending $1.2M on Nathan Cleary or $1.1M on James Tedesco TBH.

Re: TEDDY NOT FITTING IN

A lot of people seem to forget that at the time Teddy arrived as a prospective very talented player, our club was trying very hard to show all of our players that Loyalty in Rugby Leage was dead and buried (if it ever existed at all ) I can’t see how any young players would be thinking” Geez I want...

Re: Nathan Cleary

All the stories i have read today on Nathan Cleary staying at panthers have seemed to have been pulled. Not one story on any media outlet i read. Seems unusual for such breaking news. It's still on nrl.com? What I personally want to know is exactly how much Penrith are forking out to retain NC. He'...

I think as long as we don't insult the kid he'll stay.

What he should demand is another quality prop and centre.
Honestly don't think he's in much of a position to demand anything just yet, but he could enquire.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

To the post above.... The Salary Cap is there, but some clubs are spending millions more than others due to the quality of their TPAS. Roosters also have no juniors but they attract players based on their location and the fact they can pay a bit more with TPAs. So its not really even. Well clubs ar...

Re: TEDDY NOT FITTING IN

Tedesco is a rare player and we let him go. Don't forget he almost went to Canberra first.. so the talk about wanting to be in a much superior team wasn't a factor then. Truth is we should have thrown EVERYTHING at him to stay and build the team around him. Good luck to him - letting him walk was t...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Was watching controversy corner last night and the Nathan Cleary stuff came up. The comment was made “why would he go to the Tigers, who have nothing, when he can stay at Penrith with all its facilities and huge junior breeding ground.” It just made be realise not much has changed yet. We are viewe...

Still sounds like planted media articles to push a result in Gus favour
Yeah but usually when it's that definitively stated by a journo it's a leak shortly ahead of the actual announcement.

Re: Nathan Cleary

Big difference between what they reported Gus saying vs what he actually said in quotes.
