Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

not sure if posted yet - https://twitter.com/brentread_7/status/1055240375789449216?s=20 The following is is pure speculation of course but so is everything else on this thread. The way I see it unfolding is that we will get Maguire. I'd prefer Bennett but I just can't see him coming here. He's onl...

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

I see it like this..... Ivan wants to coach his son sometime in the future..... Nathan signs long term with Penrith for the next 5 years... Ivan (if true) signs with Penrith from 2021.... Ivan states he will honour his contract to keep coaching WTs until 2020.... He then goes to Penrith to coach Na...

Sounds like I can switch from deathriding Parra (Moses) to deathriding Penrith.

I'd love to see them miss the 8 next year.
Why not both?

Re: 2018 Grand Final Melbourne v Roosters

I'm curious all the Melbourne haters in the thread, is it the players or what the club stands for? Because Melbourne might have previously been cheats, but no salary cap issues for a decade. Otherwise it's, what, the way they bend and test the rules? Well I believe the Roosters bend and test the ru...

Re: 2018 Grand Final Melbourne v Roosters

With two of my most hated teams playing, I have been trying to think of a scenario I would like to see without wishing any harm to the players. But I cannot think of one! I’m hoping for Melbourne to smash the Roosters. But regardless of who wins I’m hoping for a salary cap scandal that will result ...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Simply if Ivan does not agree to extend his current deal with the club he WILL NOT be the head coach for 2019. Everything should be finalized one way or the other prior to pre-season, but this is affecting recruitment big time & has already cost us one signing. But why is there the desire to extend...

well we are down to 4 teams, so unless any further signing are coming from the top 4 sides, were are the reported signing that we were told would come once there team was knocked out of the semis. or was that all bull.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Something doesn’t add up. I wish The Pom could give us an update. I think we need some good news re signings after a disappointing end to the season. Don’t think I can be bothered watching the finals. If ever there was a year when the premiers get stripped of the title due to salary cap breach let i...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I’m hoping that Liddle will fulfil the potential people in the know including the coach believes he has. My only concern is that what if his body doesn’t grow to be what is required for a NRL level hooker. I remember we were saying the same thing about Liam Fulton when he started playing NRL. He had...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Absolutely not for Griffin as coach. Did anyone hear/watch/read what he said on the way to throwing Gus under the bus? He basically went on about how bad things were at Penrith and how he turned the junior talent into NRL players. And how Penrith played for the spoon previously year under Ivan befor...

Finally at least some possible signing news. Thanks Pom - even if this comes to nothing

With all this movement out let’s hope we’ll hear some signings soon.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

It is very interesting reading the responses from the media story. Perhaps it is worthwhile to mention a few facts: 1) Ivan is at the start of a rebuilding process. Although his record is good, realistically, he hasn't achieved anything as yet at the Tigers. In an interview, he said we are a 3-5 ye...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I don't know why this comment is in this thread - why don't you start up a " I hate Campbelltown " thread and put it in there. We need to have a mature debate about this issue. For better or worse, we've seen Woods, Moses, Brooks, Tatola, Douelhi and Suli emerge from the Balmain juniors. We've had ...

Re: Official Moses Mbye signs till 2022..

I'm hearing Mbye will be our FB this week. That's awesome news Good result, can we agree to a moratorium of a month or two before people start complaining that Mbye is not the answer for FB, after 2 or 3 games for a new club that he has not trained with before. Agree on all points. Hope he’s fb thi...

Re: Naiqama > St Helens Confirmed.2019

Is it just me or would Kevin be worth trying at fullback while Tui recovers from his knee injury that seems to have ruined his confidence and Slown him down? He’d be worth a shot but maybe Cleary is confident of Mbye being here in next week or so. And yes Kev’s been good for us. Maybe not in top 17...

Daily Telegraph reporting an hour ago that Aaron Woods might be off to the Roosters. CHOOKS CHASE WOODS THE Sydney Roosters have made a late bid to entice Aaron Woods to the glamour club. Woods looked destined for Cronulla this time last week but talks have stalled with the Sharks, who refuse to bu...
