Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

I actually think that its a really dumb move by the club to make this sort of ultimatum to Cleary - either sign an extension of we will give you the boot. What if he signs the extension, and we run dead last for the next two years? Do we just say oh well, it didnt work out, here's a suitcase full o...

Those options aren't mutually exclusive yet the poll only allows people to select one option. Thread should be renamed "IVAN: THE TERRIBLE POLL".

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Heard a rumour that the Cleary to Penrith saga cost us Curtis Rona. . . . . . I think if Curtis was ever going to come it would have been if he was off the radar for the Wallabies and if Cleary was in charge. And not at an insignificant dollars as he is on good coin with the Waratahs. Bridge too fa...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Not sure when you became able to throw stones about a change of opinion. You were his biggest defender, then was one of the first to turn on him. I changed my opinion on Cleary after I found he wanted to coach the panthers and I’ve wanted him gone since. You just stated that you never wanted him ou...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

I hope the club doesnt offer an extension, imo one isnt warranted and doing something to counteract what someone else is doing isnt the correct way these things should be done This may happen, maybe not...even if it does - unless he accepts this hypothetical extension - I doubt we will even know ab...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Lol you've got no idea if you don't think Takairangi would be an upgrade and he also offers versatility. He'd be better than the options we have at left centre but we don't have unlimited roster spots and personally I'd rather us aim higher and try to land a real strike weapon for the back line. He...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Maybe the POM can confirm but I’m hearing WT management will sit down with Cleary in the next 2 weeks to table an extension to his contract. If he refuses and commits to the Panthers in 2021 they will sign Maguire and only release Cleary under their own terms. Tigers prepared to let Cleary sit on t...

Look at the Sharks model for example - one attacking half, one organiser and then bury the rest of your money in an arse-kicking forward pack.
Except for the other $1.4 million spent on Val Holmes and Josh Dugan...

Re: Nathan Cleary

And yet the Cowboys are reportedly in the market for Munster AND Holmes. Almost over this garbage, the Balmain Tigers used to recruit better! Well they might be in the market for both but that doesn't mean they could afford both. If they managed to land one they probably couldn't afford the other e...

“I felt like I’ve played a different role then I did at the Tigers,” Tedesco said. “At the Tigers I was trying to do everything and create the plays. I learnt at the Rooster I’m in a quality team I don’t have to overplay my hand." Sums up Teddy, really... What a douche! I’d say that this post sums ...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Whether or not Merrin would be a worthwhile signing depends entirely on price and how he would be used. His sweet spot is between about 45 and 60 minutes and he'll give good output and defensive efficiency over that period. He was going alright for Penrith when he was filling that role earlier in th...
