Re: The Contenders: Fullback

Obviously Tui wins by a mile. Wouldn't really want any of the others playing there unless things are desperate!

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Another 3-4 pages of the signings thread to talk about a bloke who left the club? Let us move on. Agreed! We're not signing Woods. Nor Teddy. Nor Moses. If you want to chat endlessly about our ex players well that's your choice, but maybe start an ex players discussion thread, or comment in their i...

You didn't see the announcement made 2 days ago coming? Nor the lengthy discussion on what Pita brings to the squad?

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

That's a bit savage - crucifying a guy for one small incident in a night club. You obviously had an axe to grind before that incident. Also I don't think 475k for Matulino and 650k for Packer (both Internationals) is overpaying. We were and never will get Crichton at the time because he wasn't on t...

Re: David Nofoaluma plays through the pain for Wests Tigers

Let's hope he can have an injury free 12 months for the first time in his career. Great courage and determination to help his mates through the pain barrier but let's see him at his best now! we have the depth not to need to do this anymore

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Godinet does seem incredibly small for a hooker, and he'd be our 6th choice half for first grade so it seems an incredibly odd signing. Guys played 60 professional games, mostly in the UK, over the past 10 years. If he was any good he'd have played 150-200 games by now. If he was on a nsw cup contra...

Re: Kent on Hayne

One of the few times i agree with Kent. Incredibly dodgy how a state of origin player can drop 700k in salary and still be considered as listed at their notional value. Disgusting and highly unethical.

Re: Climate Change Thread.

Looking after the environment is itself a noble cause. But when these activists try to hoodwink people into paying more taxes and lowering their quality of life because of unsubstantiated claims that Australians have any power over the world-wide climate fluctuations, then people don't take this se...

Re: Alex Warmsley

Pretty sure he upgraded his St. Helens deal since the rumours were going around about nrl clubs Either he wants to come to the NRL or he doesn't. If it was a ploy to get more $ in the UK then good luck and piss off. If he wants to come to the NRL then we could have a crack, but where would we play ...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

It means he could lose $200,000 on the contract and it puts the entire move in jeopardy. “James Maloney actually got himself in trouble there ... he came out the other day and said he’s waiting on the club to organise a third-party deal to come through,” Kent said. “It can’t be club-driven, it has ...

Re: Moses Suli

Do you really think he's going to remain in the centres long term Geo? Do you think he'll remain quick enough and agile enough given he's going to get bigger over the next couple of years? If it doesn't affect his lateral movement there is no real reason to move him Willow Look at the damage a Konr...

Re: Wests Tigers strengthen position in Macarthur region..

Why do NYC games need to be played at the same venue as NSW Cup if the NSW Cup is now the certain raiser for the NRL? Don't really care what the team's called, seems pretty odd to rebrand as the magpies and i don't see how any Macarthur locals will give 2 sticks what the reserve grade side is calle...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

There's always ways to make room for a development player in the NRL. You upgrade them to a top 30 contract. With 30 man squads there are probably going to be some players who get cranky about lack of opportunities so there may well be more players swapping clubs, one player leaves, you can promote ...

Re: Same sex marriage debate...

It seems a lot of the no vote come from immigrants (in Sydney west for example) who's cultures or religions don't approve of SSM. I couldn't see a lot of labour voters like that voting out the incumbent just because they're following the majority in voting and acting on behalf of SSM. People on the ...
