Re: Marshall and Farah

If they play next year happy to be supporting Liddle and Reynolds I have no issue retaining them.

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.

Re: Farah's Last Hurrah

If he retires, I'm concerned Liddle still might not be ready. He was falling off tackles in the little game time he had.

I'm sure he'll get there in the next 2-3 years, but not sure he'll bulk up enough for next year.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

My understanding is Mikaele has only ever played front row. I wouldn't be moving him from there just yet. Like all young forwards he's got some improvement to make in defence. There is a lot of potential there though, I'd like to see him up his minutes in ISP and look at playing a few games off the...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

So why does a smart bloke like Cleary not address this on Tuesday morning instead of Saturday morning.... the whole situation would not have had so much time to fester. He says he spoke with the chair and ceo about the approach yet no offer was made..... I guess the truth is somewhere in the middle...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Hope I'm wrong, but it sounds to me like N Cleary will sign long term with Panthers and in 2021 Ivan will say for family reasons he's going back to Penrith.

Time will tell, but don't really trust Ivan after this week.

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

It still doesn’t look good for us, even though this is not our doing, the perception is we can’t seem to keep a coach for an extended period. After the “big 3” bailed, I was hoping everyone at the club loved being at the club. That’s one of the reasons I was happy to see Benji and Farah return. If h...

Re: Ivan Cleary

If they decide to release him, they can kiss goodbye the record memberships for next year.

No one is going to buy into another rebuild and Cleary has signed a number of players to long term deals so another coach has to inherit his team.

Re: Jnr Development Signings

Ive heard Tommy Talau has taken up a development contract for next year Is he Willie Talau son?? And is he any good and what position does he play Yes he is. He made Aussie schoolboys recently and I think he played 6 for NSWCHS but I wouldn’t be surprised if they build him into a ball playing 13. T...

Re: Luke Brooks

I guess it depends. I’d love him to stay, but what if he’s now asking for 900k and Cleary wants 1m. With Reynolds on 750k for 3 more years it’s going to be a lot of cash tied up in the halves which could mean we have Kyle Lovett’s in the forwards. I’m really hoping we’ve been front loading some of t...

Re: Nathan Cleary

The Warriors have a good spine and are in the Top 8. There doing well. Teddy23 if you had 1 million in the kitty who do you get Klemmer or Cleary? I personally belive your forward pack is the most important part of your squad, they hold so much importance in your team! It's extremely hard to win a ...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Everyone seems to want to sign Hipgrave because he's angry. To me he's a liability.

I'd rather we sign effective good players.

Re: Sue to dogs

I like Sue, but he is inconsistent. Will be a loss if we don’t find anyone better to replace him with though.

Latu would be an improvement.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Watching Feki last night is he really better then the wingers we have currently? He would be at worst our 3rd best winger. I think with our game plan of outside backs doing the majority of hitups in our own end, Feki would suit us more than Thompson. I'd have them fight it out for the left wing spo...
