Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

You cant discount Ivan walking. The backlash against him from fans will be immense especially if we miss out on Bennett and Maguire. Dont think he would put his family through it, which may encourage Penrith to strike a deal to release him so that both clubs can get on with it. If Ivan is under dure...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

I agree with Jirksyr, worst case scenario and we miss out on both Maguire and Bennett, we’ll stick with Cleary. Maybe re-evaluate the coaching landscape at the end of 2019 and see whose available. Worst case scenario is if Cleary is coaching us next season. A bloke who will just be scratching his c...

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

It seems that the Broncos are in the driving seat and we will have to wait till they appoint their new coach or knock back applicants, before we can properly determine our path. If it means holding on to Cleary for another year the club will have to be prepared to wear the impact of that if the resu...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

the longer it drags on, it only makes me doubt that Justin & Marina have any control at all. and the last thing we need is to make rash decisions that only lead us to a repeat of the coaching predicament post Sheens. Slightly conflicting there Lauren. I think Justin and Marina are taking their time...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Other than Darius who did Bennett lure to St George and Newcastle who were in their prime and or up and coming? You can always get a player looking for a big pay deal at the end of their career to follow a coach, but getting those who are on the start of their career are not so easy to lure from a c...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

It will be good when its resolved. Ivan will be able to come out of hiding, and I am wondering whether there will be another written statement.

Re: New coach.. Who should we target?

Ever notice the people who always dispute Bennett as the greatest coach ever because of the luxuries he's had, never offer up an alternative. Same goes with Bellamy. Very fast to shoot them down, but very slow to offer up anyone better. No not really. The current discussion I thought was not disput...

Re: New coach.. Who should we target?

Madge is a noted overtrainer , you get results for 2 seasons and the players burn out ..... Dont you think a coach can improve? He was sacked for that flaw. If he can accept the blame and look to improve himself i dont see why he cant become a career coach. I agree and this was my thinking today. Y...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

I dont hate any of them. Slimey fart is another matter. Me neither! The hate word gets bandied around a lot by bitter souls. I’d be happy if Ivan saw out his contract with us then moved onto Penrith in 2021. I’m sure he’s professional enough to do the job that’s in front of him. Equally as happy to...

Its an interesting discussion. The level of fan you are percieved as, can be effected by so many variables. Distance, time, money, health, family and work committments can all have an impact on your level to invest in following a team to what is considered die hard status. Emotional investment howev...

Re: For all the people moaning about signings

Still cant see who is going to make the metres up front. We got found out at the backend of last year with a pack that went backwards against the opposition, and we have made no improvement what so ever in that area.

A coaches job is to get the best from his players - havnt seen the Kiwis play with that much intensity for a long time. Good job from Maguire.

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

https://twitter.com/brentread_7/status/1050311506980556800?s=19 It has to be 2019 for Bennett or move on to someone else. It doesn’t have to be anything. Eating 12 months for Bennett would work out fine. I just hate the idea of wasting another year waiting for the next year to come. Yes seems that ...
