Re: Salary Cap

So for me it boils down to a couple of options; $$ Salary Cap/TPA's - not overly complicated but hardly a level playing field club Vs club. Points Cap - Complicated but fairer for club Vs club. So for me, it's a no-brainer, the points system would be the way to go. Yes, it's been seen as being subje...

Man their backer must have to write off a lot for tax purposes - " All of the visiting teams' flights and accommodation costs from the UK will be covered by the New York club."
They have travel companies as sponsors apparently.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

There will be one more signing for 2018 this year but it won't be a big name & it will be a utility type player to cover fullback/halves role. Final spot will not be filled UNLESS a refusable opportunity arises like Moylan, ect, comes up. If Cronk does play on it might create a chance for us to pic...

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

Whichever way I cut it, and despite how much I like the guy, I can't see a spot for Lawrence in my top 17... I have Aloiai, ET, McQueen (pending fitness) all in front of him and no room on the bench once there are two prop replacements, a Marsters/Marshall cover benchie and then I'd go for a versati...

Re: Finals series 2017 *Spoilers

Absolutely no way the refs gave the Cowboys a hand. Parra got leniency in the ruck and exactly what they deserved on the scoreboard. The way that many parramatta players carried on was a bad reflection on their coach.
I had them as grand finalists but they showed immaturity tonight

Re: Finals series 2017 *Spoilers

The Rorters looked very pleased with themselves after the game tonight, plenty of laughing and merryment after just stumbling over the line against an understrength team. They are absolute certs to get beaten in the prelim final whichever team they play IMO. Have never seen a team whooping it up li...

Re: Benji Marshall - Official..

I thought Benji played better than Milford One kick was caught in-goal otherwise he was really good bar couple of mistakes and errors 2 sticking points were the drop ball from dummy half and the penalty on Mitchell Yes if not for those 3 errors he was a 9/10 for mine. But that's always been the pro...

Re: Golden Wattle Flag

Yeah gotta say I do like it. NZ and PNG have already 'claimed' the sthn cross and the wattle is ours.

A couple of interesting things... the website is a .com site not com.au what the??

And there's a blue/gold option - also interesting (don't know how to attach pic)

Re: MOYLAN MAYBE RELEASED TODAY

Because we have no else. None of your other options are halfbacks. We're stuck with him for 2 more years. Like it or lump it. There's a guy wearing 7 for the Broncos on Friday night in a semi final who is signed with us for next year . People rolled their eyes when he signed for the Broncos but the...

Re: Basket Cases

Think the OP's original point was about the status at the back of the season - in that case I'd say the Dogs or Titans.

Re: Wests Tigers 2017 season review..

We simply must get our missed tackles per game down. I don't know the stat but we must average around 35 missed tackles a game Missed tackles are just a fact of life in the NRL. Sometimes its an indicator of the breakneck pace of the game ala origin 2 where both sides missed heaps or incompetence a...

Re: Zane Tetavano: only 1 week

It would've been a disgrace if he got 5 weeks, absolutely no intent in it. Doesn't have to be intent if the contact is with the head - careless and reckless. This was the point they made when they said they'd get heavy - that a player's head needed to be protected - and started dishing out severe p...

Re: Wests Tigers 2017 Presentation Night

Congrat's ET! All the players talk so positively about Ivan - even Woods who is leaving. It's great to finally have a coach that the players respect and want to play for - ET is a classic example. I'd say with the relationship he has with the coach, ET will be captain. Can't underestimate the captai...

Re: MOYLAN MAYBE RELEASED TODAY

Well I hope we don't get him - yes he's a quality player but seems the type we have been trying to rid ourselves of?

But something seems to be brewing to me... based on reactions from both Cleary and Pascoe when asked about it.

Re: We Need A Centre

I don't reckon Fonua would be coming back for less than a starting spot... And I recall that Fonua has been used as a winger in attack then switches to centre in defence. But I'm not sure why... if it is a reflection of his abilities or the abilities of those playing alongside him? Either way that c...

Re: So will we be booing or cheering Woods and Tedesco this weekend?

So what did they get?? They got a respectful after match send off, without any fanfare. I was personally going to just go home at full time, not boo or cheer, but i stayed and i did clap them, in the heat of the moment it seemed the correct thing to do. On side note, i felt Teddy was happy and cont...
