Re: Benji Marshall re-watched all his 2018 games before deciding his future with Tigers

As I have already expressed in response to previous posts bagging Farah and Benji's initial recruitment for 2018 and subsequent 2019 re-signing.... my thoughts are: 1) Taken in the context of where we were as a squad and as a club - both signings were appropriate and made for reasons that suited the...

Re: POLL - Maguire 2019/Bennett 2020

As this saga has gone on, my feelings that we absolutely must not have Cleary as coach in 2019 have strengthened. Any solution but Cleary again, is my view. A lot of fans on here are talking about how Bennett will bring players with him and how if he stays at the Broncs next season he might even hav...

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

Geo's got a point. Wouldn't the Broncs be concerned that Bennett stays for a year then comes to us possibly taking certain players with him (TPJ for example) - and what about their issues of recruitment for 2020?? By signing Bennett for 2020 aren't we sort of doing to the Broncos just what the Panth...

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

Like many, I was a big fan of Ivan until this whole mess started to pan out. I even gave him the benefit of the doubt for a while there, but now I feel that the only way forward for us is to cut ties asap, I don't think we can go another season with Ivan. If that means that Bennett can't start as co...

Re: For all the people moaning about signings

I don't mind discussing potential signings. I just think it's ludicrous to suggest that anything short of signing basically every first-grade-standard player on the market by early October dooms the club to the wooden spoon next year. The list you've come up with would have chewed up every bit of c...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

It's hard to go past the talk about Bennett staying at the Broncos for 2019 - so that leaves us the options of either keeping Cleary for next season, getting a fill in coach for 2019 or looking at Maguire for a longer term. Of the above I think Maguire is probably the best scenario. On Fonua-Blake, ...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Just on Fonua..... one of the differences between great NRL players and average ones is consistency. If Fonua could consistently play like he did the game back from being dropped (I think that was the one game he ran over 200 metres and absolutely smashed it), then yes he'd be a beast and you could ...

Re: New coach.. Who should we target?

I don't like Bennett for us - it's very short term and I don't think he's interested in building a team. Maguire is a better option for us to steady our ship and recruit long term.

Re: TEDDY NOT FITTING IN

In my view the whole issue is pretty simple. The guy is undeniably a champion footballer with a passion to succeed in his sport. After toiling for years in a club that was struggling in just about every area of the game on and off the field, he had built enough of a reputation to leave the nest and...

Re: Who needs to stay/come or leave Wests

Can't see Lodge ever coming back to the Tigers and thought he was committed to Broncos anyway, Bennett or not. As for TPJ, somehow can't see him coming to us either - the only chance would be if Bennett somehow became our coach, and I can't see that happening. That leaves us with current Parra or Ma...

Re: Ryan Matterson signs Offical

Interview with him on NRL App is good - seems like a good, friendly kind of bloke and not too serious about himself. Didn't like the concussion story though - hope that doesn't end up a problem.

Are McQueen and Rochow definitely going?...
Seems to be heresay at the moment apart from a mention by POM that McQueen won't be at WTs next season. As for Rochow, I think it is just wishful thinking. These guys are on contracts.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Thanks for the updated list M&M. So, 2 spots at the moment, plus maybe McQueen moving on (there was some mention of this a while ago by POM I think). It would be excellent to add a couple of impact forwards to that roster - guys like Fonua-Blake, Thompson, or fingers crossed, Marty. If we could just...

Re: Who needs to stay/come or leave Wests

Now that the NC debate is over, lets focus on some realistic needs...... 3 spots left in the 30 I think, (that is without us somehow moving on one or two players that are dead wood) - have to be targeting a speedy outside back and 2 x hard running impact forwards. Watching the videos on the 2018 se...

Re: Luke Brooks

Can't believe there are fans on here posting negative comments about Brooks - what more do you want? The guy played behind a very average pack in a team with few match winners, he was close to winning Dally M player and won the Dally M half. He delivered some pretty high stats in all areas of his ga...
