Re: Zane Musgrove

Another reason that if he’s guilty, he shouldn’t be signed simply because he’s obviously stupid, All these warnings and watching other fools who leave their brains at home, should be enough to give these people enough warning for them to think , it might’nt be a good idea to act like a Neanderthal :...

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 e...

Re: Luke Brooks

What did the reporter say..? “it was 0n a backended contract”uu7 I found the article.It was written in the telegraph so as far as i am concerned it would be fiction.

Re: Luke Brooks

Brooks on current form is a better player than we can attract. The NRL will never value development as they want to take over all elite pathways. Clever teams that really don’t care about the game just their clubs are dominating Roosters, Sharks, Storm do very little in their areas with juniors. Th...

Re: Luke Brooks

fabulous news that this young man has resigned. He was one of the big four that the tigers were hoping to resign 18 months back.when he did,reaction on this forum was lukewarm to say the least. the irony is that luke has been much more successful than both moses and woods in the past 12 months.luke...

Re: Why Nathan Cleary was never heading to the WT's

We expect loyalty because the fans are more than just financially invested, we are emotionally invested. Anything negative that happens to our club or favourite players is interpreted as a wrong against us. That's the parochialism of Rugby League. The fans haven't changed, the game has. Yeah , yout...

Re: Why Nathan Cleary was never heading to the WT's

They get paid well and deservedly so.... I think most of us would seriously reconsider our careers if we had to put our bodies through what these blokes do It’s a business now and players have to look at it that way too, players may have a preference for a certain club or for a preferred Coach or l...

Re: Why Nathan Cleary was never heading to the WT's

For those that look at life that way, yes, but certainly not that way for all. Not everyone is self centered and greedy. I hear what you're saying. But footy is a brutal business. Coaches are constantly being backstabbed and undermined by players, especially if there's a bad run. Management and boa...

Re: Why Nathan Cleary was never heading to the WT's

For those going on about 'loyalty' - get off your high horse. Coaches and players have no loyalty. It's a job. They go to the highest bidder. They aren't fans like us.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Happy with the player signings so far... but...let's be honest..... I know we aren't Melb or Rosters but I think we would all be lying to ourselves if we can't admit that without signing a gun centre and proper forward it's another failed off-season / foray into the player market. Most distressing ...

Re: Wests Tigers in SOO 2019

No one sadly. Pearce will be Cleary's understudy which means Brooks will be further down the pecking order. It’s ridiculous really. I don’t know how many chances the selectors will give Pearce before it finally dawns on them that he just can’t cut it at Origin level. He does wonders at club level, ...

Re: Luke Brooks

Hope that Madge has a different way of handling Brooks than he did with his half at Souths, he made a catch and pass robot out of Reynolds, and it wasn’t till Seibold rescued him that he started to show his real ability again last season, 4 million (if that’s right) will bring a lot of pressure on ...

Seriously? What exactly does he have to do you in your eyes to be a top class halfback? Represent at SOO or Australian level? What criteria would you accept? Specifics please. Genuinely interested in what makes a top class halfback. Mike, he can’t control a game. He literally only had one good game...
