Re: El Packer

He's going Ok but not having the impact he had early in the Season,he and Matulino were probably the 2 best Forwards in the Comp. for the first 6 or so games. That's to be expected when they are targeted,like in the early games, and getting smashed every game. Hope Matutlino,in particular,can manage...

Re: Benji needs back up

He will get plenty of rest when grub is good to go Yeah,but how much more can Reynolds battered body stand,i can't see him lasting another 3 Seasons. Benji is going Ok but needs Brooks to be more consistent and attract attention away from his(Benji) plays. Too many poor decisions,and especially gru...

They are rumours that R Farah has retired and will take up coaching at Tigers or Bunnies
As posted on here and other Forums it looks like he's doing a Benji and coming home.I doubt it will this year thou.,better to see it out at Souths.

Re: Taylor: Benji solves key problems for us

I'm gonna buck trend and say I wasn't completely convinced with Benji last weekend. Definitely more controlled than Brooks, but also less of an attacking threat than Brooks. FWIW i agree,if you look back at Benji's time with us from around 2008/9 forward he always starts the season well,the accolad...

Farah's not coming back.
I'm not so sure,someone(Benji?) is already sounding out the 'çlub' on him returning to a Admin/Coaching position in 2019.

Re: McQueen upbeat despite Tigers coach switch

He was going great last year until injury hampered his form, if he is fit he will be a good signing. Yeah ,great player if fit ,Souths sure missed him. Still a gamble thou.,like Ballin & Reynolds there is a question mark on him surviving a tough season but time will tell. Most online bookies have u...

Benji is a champion isn't he.
More 'was' the last 5 or 6 years but looks like he will have a different attitude with us this time around.

I thought this thread was about Mitchell Pearce. Is it official yet, that he's with Manly??
no
Apparently met Newcastle Officials(Browny?) this W/end so not a done deal with Manly yet.

Re: AN EMOTIONAL Benji Marshall has opened up on his rollercoaster rugby league career & the return “home” to Wests Tig

Marshall was offered a contract by Brisbane for next year but decided to get in contact with Cleary to ask if the Tigers could offer him a deal. I'm not sure that bit about the Bronco's contract is 100% true but good to see him end his career here. I think the Union experience was a good one for hi...

Re: One Foot in Grave Forum

A guy walked into the local welfare office to pick up his check. He marched straight up to the counter and said, "Hi. You know..., I just HATE drawing welfare. I'd really rather have a job." The social worker behind the counter said, "Your timing is excellent. We just got a job opening from a very w...

Re: Manly Salary cap issue

The investigation has concluded with no charges laid - sounds like a huge cover-up. I understand that there was some kind of statute of limitations but seriously if a crime has been committed then any player involved ought to be punted (sorry, couldn't resist) The particular task force may end but ...

Politis looks after them as long as they serve his means. Yeah,but when he turns its curtains as Ricky Stuart knows.

Re: Aaron Woods - Signs with Bulldogs [Official]..

I don't think Reynolds' problem with his hammies are as bad as it seems. I reckon he kept getting rushed back a week or two earlier than he should have been since it was his final year at the club. They probably wanted to give him as many games in blue and white as possible. With a full pre-season ...

Re: Teddy praises Cronks possible arrival at the Roosters

I posted last year that the Chooks were looking at life after Pearce ,came from a mad Roosters supporter i've known since the 1970's,he also said Moses had agreed to terms with the Roosters then backflipped to stay at the Tiges. then backflipped again to join the Eels.
