Re: Mbye long term fullback?

When at the Dogs Moses struggled in the halves and even had a shot at the nine role without any real success. They than moved him to no1 and he has not looked back. Since coming to us his form has probably even got better, so why would you consider moving him. Young Smith or who ever can press for a...

Re: Nathan Cleary

We would have to be allowing plenty of cap space to secure Nathan. If he is not coming it would be nice if he/Ivan - in the interest of us moving forward - be forthcoming in letting the club know even if they dont want to publically state anything just yet.. If he is on his way and they know it or ...

Re: Cowboys interested in Mcqueen

You would be dreaming if you thought we would not be topping up his contract elsewhere. Even if he approached us for a release, I think you would find some deal is be brokered with another club and no club would take him on with his current pay deal. If we have to top up 100g a year its still a grea...

Re: Round 23 *Spoilers

Parra played really hard and if they had a half decent playmaker they could have caused a boil over. Just cant believe how Moses could not create something when the Storm were one short and had another bloke who could hardly walk and a empty bench. Moses to me is a one trick Pony, has a great long b...

Re: Balmain v Raiders ‘89 grand final

The worst thing was, after full time I dragged myself out of the ground feeling very depressed. I got all the way out only to realise I left my helmet under my seat, so I had to battle my way back into the ground.....felt a real fool

Re: Balmain v Raiders ‘89 grand final

Harrigan cost us the game when he pinged Bruce McGuire, the call should have gone the other way. Mick Neill’s Stumble, Juniors dropped ball and Benny’s field goal were other factors. It was a funny game in the sense, the Raiders played better in the 1st half yet we were well in front on the score bo...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

If we are going to build on this year we need two class players, one back and one forwards as a bare minimum, and I guess that is what they are trying to do

Re: Nathan Cleary

He is happy to sign with Penrith, he just wants an iron clad guarantee that his father will be there otherwise he won’t sign! :brick: So if we give an iron clad guarantee to sign Ivan for 10 years will Nathan sign with us?? NO ! Nathan doesn’t want to play with us. That’s why Ivan was hoping to wig...

Re: Coaching circus

If we were in the market for a coach, and of course our coach has already said he is at Concord for two more years so I guess it’s only hypothetical, anyway I would take Barrett on the condition he brings Kelly and Marty with him!!!

Re: How will the Top 8 finish

Throw it out there now - if Broncos hadn't been awarded that rubbish penalty earlier in the year we'd be equal with them right now. If we had instead been given a rubbish penalty - we'd swap positions. I'm not one to point the finger at certain small outcomes, because there were other lost opportun...

Re: Farah's Last Hurrah

My thoughts on both Farah and Benji going around again in 2019 are linked to our recruitment. If we jag some real class I am happy for them to go, but if we sign the usual journeymen, I think we will definitely need both to run around again. Our stocks are not great in the spine

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Bottom line Cleary can’t go anywhere for two years if the Tigers do not agree to a release. He could sit out two years and not be paid, but still could face a legal battle. So really nothing Kent says or any othe jurno says means anything. From my own personal opinion, given Cleary’s response and th...

Re: Nathan Cleary

Nathan has come up through the juniors, okay only since they left NZ, but there are plenty of guys he has spent most of his football career at Penrith and on top of that they have a strong roster and the near future looks good. He has been playing under Gould’s watch since he came into grade and the...

Re: Will the Wests Tigers make the 2018 finals?

I don't think the NRL can afford to have Brisbane miss out. So I expect the Broncs will get every 50/50 call go their way over the next 3 weeks. In short, I think we'll just miss it. They have since round one so that’s given. You would think it will all come down to our clash with Souths, but we ha...

How would it be if Bennett, ended up at manly. Talk is Trent wants out.
Bennett will only go to a club with a strong roster. Penrith for two years is where the smart money is

Re: Cleary vs Paul Crawley

Cleary very brief prepared press conference left the door open for every two bob Jurno to take pop shots at him and these shots are not going to stop in the near future. I just think Ivan has to accept the fact he is going to be a media target as in a lot of people’s minds he left a lot of things un...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

If Ivan’s account of the saga are correct, he should be sueing the pants off Gould for deformation. Gould said for all to hear, that Ivan said he was very interested in 2021 and would talk to the Tigers re 2019.....and it was Cleary’s idea of trying to link up sooner than later. Now obviously someon...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Rumours and gossip will be with us for the next two years and this drama will not go away. Although it gives us some breathing space to find or groom a new coach.

Probably the best out come but it has come at a cost
