750k a year helps too...
It does, but it's nice to see people like to win more than they lose. Let's face it, this hasn't been our club's strong point.

Re: Channel 502 from 10.00 pm tomorrow

Was a great game, I keep reminding myself of it when thinking about the season coming, hoping it is a sign of things to come

Re: Channel 502 from 10.00 pm tomorrow

All well and good to hammer Happy, but someone could have put the start time up....

They are really getting max value from our game against manly from 2017, I've seen in twice this off season

Re: Crichton to roosters

Trying to be balanced here, BalmainBoy. Let's say that Cronk, Tedesco and Crichton are on a max of 2.5 mil between them under the cap. This would leave 6.9 mil. Let's say, being generous to the roosters, that Cordner and Kearey are on 1.5 between them I'll say JWH, Friend and Napa are on 1.2, which ...

Re: Manly Salary cap issue

Obviously the game is too big a business now to surfer any real damage from these types of things, but how disappointing that we can't be even bigger and better because of our toothless leadership. Manly have had a question mark over them for just about every dodgy thing you can do, "sports science"...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Putting my issues with his leadership aside, woods is a good prop, his strengths are his metres gained and he is strong when standing and looking to offload. For premium prop money he is a bad buy, because he can be trampled in defence. 95% of his tackles "do the job", very few sting and every now a...

Re: Is it time to exactly quantify the players value?

Still comes back to supply and demand which will mess with the points system An example would be the current situation with fullbacks and hookers , most clubs have good quality fullbacks and hookers Then rate the backrowers and centres , far different situation One club's diamond might be another c...

Re: Is it time to exactly quantify the players value?

I think a points or rating system is the fairest way. Remove the cap, let the roosters etc pay what they want for the best players they can afford under a points system. It would be non sensitive information that would be fine for the public domain. Discounts for home grown talent, and that's it, a ...

Re: The Ashes

England need a good first hour to get this to 50/50. The old adage of looking at the score and adding two wickets applies here.

A lot of teams get into the position they are in now and then fizzle out. Australia still have the runs on the board and that is priceless.

Re: The Ashes

Engrossing game, the most interesting couple of hours of the series so far.

I thought the day night test was a bad idea at first, I have to say I think it's brilliant after three years and hope we start to see them shared around the country.

Re: Luke Brooks 2018

Can someone smarter than me give a ranking for all halves based on try assists over the last 2 years? https://www.totalfootystats.com.au Brooksy doesn't even feature in the top 50 for this year. His stats were pretty bad. https://www.totalfootystats.com.au/nrl-player-stats/wests-tigers/luke-brooks&...

Re: When does pre season training start ?

Good for Brooks to have Benji and Reynolds in his ear in these photos, he has had a show pony as a partner for most of his career. Now he has a bulldog and a thoroughbred.
