Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Think he will stay and do the job of rebuilding. I don't give a rat's whether he stays beyond contract end. Perhaps it's then better he move on and WT can then get a coach that makes better use of bench and is able to motivate the players for the crucial big games- whether they be against stronger ...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Dennis Bendall......and Neil Pringle more great Tigers players from that era Anyone for Gary Spears? Pretty intimidating second row with Spears and Grant. What about Steve "Stopper" Lavers!! Gary Jack. BTW Pringle was better than Pearce Sure Mate! :roll: - that's why he had so many representative h...

Re: Cleary,Bennett or Madge

Pretty academic question really. Cleary is here for another 2 years and could be a strong possibility that he maybe here for a lot longer. Bennett would be another two years older in 2021. Madge, Toovy, Hasler, Barrett - all a step down from Cleary in my opinion (don't care how many premierships the...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Thanks for this post, I didn’t realised he died so young - he was a real cult hero at Balmain, being such a ferocious enforcer. Attacking players used to drop the ball frequently as they knew Grant would time his hits so that he smashed them the second they caught a pass! We are lacking an enforcer...

People who want him here are kidding themselves or uneducated in reality if they think he'll make any difference behind our current pack. Would go no different to brooks.
I am so sorry I am uneducated and kidding myself :roll:

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

I think the "We will not grant a release" is to force Penrith to back off.

Continue to try and pinch our coach and we will commence legal action.

I think it worked - got "the Fibber" scurrying back to his hole. Has then told fibs to try and make him out to be far removed.

The roosters are interested, that rules everyone else out, Parra, Titans and Cowboys also interested Suggestions are he wants to come to Sydney. Only leaves the roosters and the Eeels. Point is though that why are we not even making an offer. You cant be in the Sydney market with dreams of premiers...

Re: Whats happened to TWAL - Any clues

Coach probably realized he wouldn't put a dent in a gelly I don't understand what you're on about. Have you not been watching our games at all this season? He's been one of our best forwards this year, with his solid defence and I don't know where your getting "he wouldn't put a dent in a jelly"? H...

Re: Leichhardt Oval the GRAVEYARD

30k easily. What a masterstroke. We only got an Attendance of 9,865 at ANZ for our last game there against the Bulldogs. WestsTigers fans don't like going there. Don't think hardly anyone like going there - but if your team is playing there - it doesn't give you any other option. No....we have too ...

I’d go with Willows team.

I think Fonua will have a much better game he is rocks and diamonds which we knew when we signed him.
Tired of rocks - I at least want zirconia.

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Reports Cameron Munster is looking around for a Sydney club. A class player like that. An ambitious under performing club. A highly ambitious coach yeah. If there is no Nathan Cleary the money should be just sitting there for a player like Munster. Surely Ivan would have a crack at him if he was tr...

Re: Marshall and Farah

Farah getting us into that position is an opinion. Not a fact. Just like me thinking we had no chance of making the 8. What's my common agenda? Being sick of the club plodding through season after season? If you cant genuinely see the improvement in this club and this team over the last 18 months, ...

Re: Ground conditions

I was there - can't say the field conditions can be used as an excuse.

Same for both teams - didn't see too many Dragons slipping over. I think Brooks must have slipped over (trying to change direction) at least half a dozen times.
