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

Re: Round 22 Spoilers

Although beaten the Rabbits I think will have the Chooks measure come finals. A fullback,two wingers and GI to come back into the side will make a massive difference. Fingers crossed anyway, just hate the Chooks with a passion

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Club is now in a no win situation through no fault of their own. Now I don’t know if Penrith and Cleary had a clever and devious plan in place or it was just the way the cards fell. The one thing I do know is, when Cleary spoke to Penrith and than to Pascoe about jumping ship he than no longer could...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Pretty simple why we have not heard a word from the bus driver. I would imagine his legal advice is to say nothing. You would think a deal or a settlement is being put together behind the scenes. Everyone knows that sticking around for another two years will not work for us and the unwanted media at...

Maybe Trent Barret, okay Manly has had a very bleak year, but injuries, the cap and internal drama has made it basically impossible for him

Outplayed, outsmarted. Amateurs! Gosh I disagree with this. This was not outsmarted. People who stoop really low are notoriously hard to predict. I hold my head high as a Tiges member. I back Pascoe and Go 100% in this Tigers are the one player in this mess that actually have enhanced their reputat...
