Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

There was a long stretch we were always linked to every single player on the market. We all complained how frustrating it was for our club to be linked to everyone regardless of how feasible it was. Now people are unhappy that the rumour mongers aren't linking us to any and every player on the marke...

Re: Zane Musgrove

So this happened 3 weeks ago, before he signed with us? We Don't have details of the incident but from the sounds of it a drunk man groped a woman in a pub. Now of course I don't remotely condone that sort of behaviour. But if the incident was similar to this he won't be sacked. The club may have ev...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

In a way it's a shame that Cini is away with the Aussie schoolboys, a full off-season with the first grade side may have seen him bulk up a bit. Averages a try a game at every level he's played at, but has played predominantly on the wing. Has good instincts and is very elusive. If I were to compare...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Like 2010/11..oh.. Ancient history. We need to stop looking back and start living in the present. The point was made if we start making finals in back to back years players would be lining up to come here well we did that and the queue was very short..It actually started our worst recruitment perio...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

We've made the finals 3 times in 20 years. That's why players are reluctant to join us.

If we could make the finals in back to back years that, on top of our success off the field could see us become a big club. Nothing will change though until we start making the finals

Re: Jnr Development Signings

I think you'll find its David Warwick Tyga... Having just watched the first game of the schoolboys I must admit to being a tad disappointed with how our young boys played. No one was poor, but there were some real standouts but our boys were largely invisible. Cini scoring 4 is of course great, but ...

Re: WT Player Retention/Recruitment/Loss List

Fastest to Slowest 1. Mbye 2. Brooks 3. Momirovski 4. Thompson 5. Nofo 6. Marsters We need a lot more speed in our club for us to be a threat in the NRL. Rabbitohs/Storm have got the 2 fastest players in the NRL and Roosters have got Cronk, Teddy, Fergo, Mitchell, Tupou, Keary. All those clubs were...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Im glad we dont have that backline. Its an ok backline but its hardly clutch. Almost all of them have massive question marks on them when under pressure. Take Ponga out and they are average. Its a no for me. Question marks maybe. Doesn’t say much for our back seven. At least they have speed, height...

Re: Zane Musgrove

With Musgrave and McQueen on about the same money it could be a swap, both clubs deciding the other player would add more value and depth to their squads and positions they're looking at.

Big 5/8. Second row forwards are easily located, but big ball playing 5/8s who can defence are not.
Yet it's taken us 6 years to locate a second rower after Ellis left

WT Announce 2019 Jersey Flegg Squad

Good to see Lambkin come onboard! With the development players and some of last seasons better players this squad should be very competitive next season. Wests Tigers have today confirmed the club's Jersey Flegg squad for the 2019 season, led by new Head Coach Wayne Lambkin. A former Western Suburbs...

Good to see Robson sticking around. He's our backup hooker for Liddle and Farah.

And Benji should provide enough direction for these boys at halfback...

If anyone wants to watch our Aussie schoolboy players you can get a free stream of all their UK matches by downloading the 'Our League' app from the App store or Google Play.

Talau looks a lump of a 5/8 or backrower!

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Do people realise that for us to sign Cook we'd need to pay him 100-200k more than what Souths offer him? Players don't leave clubs competing for grand finals to go to teams that don't make the finals unless they're getting paid overs. For a guy who's spent most of his career in reserve grade it see...

Re: Liddle to Bulldogs? - SMH article

Not a chance we'd be letting Liddle go. The club has earmarked him as future hooker, just as Farah was when he had all his shoulder injuries when he was young. Same with Benji. I'd let madge see how he goes in preseason, and then possibly even look to extend his contract by a year or two already if ...

His size should sure help his defence. Too often he was shrugged off. Hopefully his new strength will enable him to be more effective in defence

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Not that i like the guy but someone like Bevan French would add a bit to our squad. If Mybe goes down or is needed more at 5/8 we dont really have a back up. Yes we have Reynolds and Marshall but Mybe is borderline QLD Origin, the other two are well past their best. Same for the wing position. If N...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Gamble is a wildcard. nothing more nothing less. In 2019 he could be a better option than Benji, we dont know at this stage. What i do kind of know though is that Benji Marshall will not be better in 2019 than he was in 2018. Its time to look to the future.. I struggle to imagine Gamble ever becomi...
