Re: Hayne plane

The Hayne plane is a lot like the Concorde.

Overpriced, out of date and liable to burst into flames at any moment.

Re: Tyson Gamble

The bloke is talented but is still young and inexperienced. He struggled a bit in reggies after Drinkwater left (and won the Challenge Cup).

He'll be better in 2019, but I can't see him getting much game time. Even as a utility.

Re: Tigers boss defends handling of the Cleary exit :Part 1

IMO, management signed the wrong bloke and sowed the seeds for a terrible situation. IC had a future superstar son playing first grade at another club when he joined us. History shows this is never a sustainable situation. Penrith were never, EVER going to let NC go. The chances of keeping IC here w...

Re: Tigers boss defends handling of the Cleary exit :Part 1

Spare me the PR victory.

Bottom line is that we lost a coach mid-rebuild AND and allowed this saga to drag on, ruining any opportunity a new coach may have had to recruit.

While Cleary no doubt must shoulder some of the blame, management are also culpable.

Re: Will we make the 8 in 2019?

I'm hopeful. but realistically.... Too much experience has walked out the door. The guys who have left might not been forum favorites, but we've lost 300+ games of experience and that counts for a lot. And as far as I can see, there aren't any superstars coming up through the ranks to take their pla...

Re: TIGERS Rozelle Development

I'm not sure how it works, but I believe all assets will now be sold and debts settled (as much as possible given what equity can be recouped) Given the brand will be sold also, I assume it may be a possibility it can be resurrected with a clean slate, just as long as it's technically the same enti...

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

Well played, Gus Gould, well played. Once again, our club is the laughing stock of the league. For all the huff and puff about not letting Cleary go, Penrith well and truly called our bluff. It's an untenable situation to keep a coach that has signed elsewhere if you're a club that's intent on rebu...

Re: POLL - Maguire 2019/Bennett 2020

Uncle Wayne should be off playing lawn bowls.

Let's give Brett Hodgson a chance. At least there will some sort of continuity rather than another disruptive overhaul.

Re: One Home Ground

If we really are a joint venture, Campbelltown and Leichhardt should be our home grounds. End of story. Admittedly, both stadiums need a lot of work and funding to bring them up to standard, but this is not mission impossible. Travelling around the continent like a circus will do nothing to build ou...

By far and away - Jarrod McCracken - Signed for a fortune as a 30 year old. - Played like a busted for eight games - Retired after appearing to milk a spear tackle situation, then sued the opposition - Did zilch for the club Not to forget, he took a former club to court and is now bankrupt after dod...

Ive got Wayne Pearce number one. Massive Balmain fan but Junior set us on the road to ruin. He had a huge salary cap and blew it on morons like Terry Hill. Whats more he had no coaching skill.
Good call.

I know someone who played under him in origin who said he couldn't coach.

Scott Prince would have been handy in 2010/2011.
Lui was the goods. It was brain farts from the others in the spine that cost us 2 grand final appearances.
I second that. Lui consistently played great footy.

Re: Conspiracy Theory

The timing is interesting (Ivan "sacked", Nathan makes debut the following year).

But don't forget that Penrith had a shocker in Ivan's last year after they'd finished top 4 the season before and looked like real premiership contenders.
