Re: P. C HAS TAKEN OVER

What I do like about the women's game is it's played at a slower pace and with less pure power/speed than men's, so it shows a different side to league. I don't know if that makes sense, but because the players move about with less pure speed, there's a longer development of the play, so you can se...

Exactly, she has been like that for years.

Weeks and weeks and weeks ago when I said on here Ryan Matterson will come to the Tigers well the person who told me that said that Shane Flanagan will coach Penrith in 2019 on a 4 year contract the person is right about 65 percent of the time Now now thats not quite what you said...someone else sa...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

I’m with you Ivan! You said “I’ have a contract that I am going to honour”........that’s good enough for me. Seems like a man who chooses his words wisely, sometimes saying nothing is the best way of getting your message across. And the with signings. Mbye, Farah, & Garner are 3 decent additions to...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

I have said that I am going to trust that Ivan is a man of his word, and I am standing by that - but it is definitely strange that he is playing semantics. All he needs to say is, “look guys, I will be honouring my contract and will be here for the next 2 years at least.” For whatever reason, he ha...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

If Bird continues to get pandered to, he'll stay a spoilt brat and never be great at any club. The best thing for him would be for the Broncos to stay tough until he realises that he does actually have to work hard. He would be so much better for it. If we got him now, no way would we get the best o...

Re: Packerlino

Our problem is when they’re on the bench, not when they’re on the field. We need more big bodies to support them. Our problem is having them as a front row pair, they're rubbish!! All Matulino is worried about is finding his knees and elbows, watch how easily he's brought down sometimes when it loo...

Re: Nathan Cleary

I'm cooling a bit on NC since all this stuff about he and his father has been in the news.

Aspects of Maloney's game could suit us although his missed tackles aren't what we need!

Re: Leichhardt Oval the GRAVEYARD

So why was our handling so bad yesterday? Why did the game plan go out the window at times, and off-the-cuff plays with a high degree of difficulty come in? Why did we throw so many passes under pressure, time after time? It's clear to me that the players were too anxious, too excited, became distra...

Re: Marshall and Farah

I really want Benji & Farah hear next year..... on a small wage and as backups. They won't want to be back ups, they want to be very regular first grade players and that is one of the the main problem. The other main problem is that they will be taking up Cap spaces which could have been taken up b...

Re: Cowboys interested in Mcqueen

Definitely time to go. Last weekend I thought he didn't commit a couple of times in plays when he had every right to. Seemed like he was really looking out for himself first. I was hanging in there for him as a fan, but that sort of thing leaves me cold.


A very disappointing signing.

Re: Mbye long term fullback?

I think that's the plan. Probably his best position too as he has elite athletic abilities. Could be the fittest at the club? I reckon he'd be a good centre too but happy for him to stay at fullback. Can play anywhere 1-7 and 9. He certainly does, watching the warm up last week at the ground, he wa...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Last night at end of the footy show Freddy slipped into a sentence “when Ivan joins the Panthers next year” then kind of paused and tried to imply he meant “if”... hope it’s nothing but it didn’t seem like he was trying to make a joke, more a slip of the tongue. I assume he is very tight with Gus a...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

I love a good join the dots but youve lost me here. Cant see how you can draw a line based on that. The journos (Reid, Kent, Ikin) asked him about everyone except Ivan when on every other Fox show they continue to question what is really going on with Ivan and Nathan and the Panthers. He is a Direc...

Macqueen for Ethan Lowe? I heard he's being moved on but not sure if he's off contract.
POM said MacQueen leaving would work in our favour.
Gallagher, I took POM's comment as meaning any financial negotiation would mostly be in our favour.
