Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I don't think we need to be rushing in to anything, the market still has plenty of turns ahead. Over at Penrith they are stacked with good young forwards like Nick Lui-Toso, Kaide Ellis, Moses Leota and Jack Hetherington. It seems pretty likely to me that they'll be looking to move on Tamou and Merr...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I heard Gould putting out a bushfire on a Trent Barrett rumour. He said that Manly don't have the salary cap to buy or to retain players off contract. Brian Kelly? Yet they just signed Elgey who was said to be on 600k a year at the Titans. Pretty safe to say he'd be on a whole lot less than that no...

Re: Sue to dogs

Official. Might play bench for a few games. Can't see it being a successful union for either parties tho. (Sue or Dogs) Good luck to him tho. I reckon he'll waltz onto their bench and stay there all season as long as injuries don't cruel him. Offers more than Fualalo or Ogden (although he might dev...

Re: Forward analysis

Time to force a divorce on Packerlino. They can no longer be analysed as a single unit. Packer hasn't played well in months, mats has built some form back up. He and Sue are the reason Canberra didn't win yesterday, they controlled the middle well and Canberra only had one point of attack. We need ...

Re: Sue to dogs

I don't know if it's already been linked in this thread but the Mole report of Sue to Dogs was on or about 28 July and on 2 August there was an article about Sue on ZeroTackle in which he said he hadn't signed anything for 2019 - https://www.zerotackle.com/wests-tigers-sauaso-sue-on-his-nrl-future-3...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Has Barba ever played centre? Would we have any interest? He's never played centre in first grade as far as I know and I don't think he'd work there. I think he's an out and out fullback and we've just invested in Mbye to play there. I'd imagine Barba will go to a club that would be prepared to tak...

Flanagan saying no room for Barba at sharks Tryna secure Holmes if I had to guess. Yeah said that exactly - want Holmes long term. (NRL.com) The Cowboys would be mad not to go for Barba if that's the case. Thurston retiring and Coote not being re-signed will give them cap space and a massive need f...

Re: What should we do with mr Cleary?

The latest communication from Fletcher suggesting that Ivan signs for 2021 and they'll wait until then, has weakened our position greatly. Now, we are put into the position that many here are suggesting - that we have to let him go as his staying wouldn't probably be in the long term interest of ou...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I don't particularly rate Griffin or want him at this club but that "appraisal" was inarticulate dribble from an overbreeder who clearly had an axe to grind. And of course Griffin has no axe to grind in his interview, , Might be good to heat the opinions of Corey Parker , Moylan, and James Segearo,...

Re: THE MYTH OF MATT WOODS

Never really filled out as far as I could tell, always on the skinny side. Whilst we are casting out names, I assume Marion Seve and Salesi Funaki are not going to appear in FG any time soon either? Ray Stone? Seve just signed with Melbourne I read somewhere. Ray Stone was all heart, solid as rock....

Most here, when Griffin got topped by the Broncos, were horrified whenever He was mentioned as a likely candidate for our Coaching job, Now we have some turning him into some sainted Saviour . Guys,(and ladies) he’s been sacked by the only two clubs he’s ever been a head coach of. But let’s not tak...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

One of the reporters on TV tonight said Penrith have thrown 1.6mpa+ at Ivan which is double what he is on with us. I still think Ivan will stay but if he does I would rather he is extended if Nathan signs long term with Penrith so it forces Panthers to look elsewhere for a long term coach. 1.6mil f...
