Re: TIGERS Rozelle Development

Did anyone attend the Balmain AGM this morning and can tell us what the future funding model looks like?

Part private ownership coming do we think?
Mr Jaycar?
That's the rumour gaining momentum.
But Jaycar is about to float so I'm not sure the timing is right.

Re: Cowboys interested in Mcqueen

I feel sorry for the bloke. He hasn't played badly in limited opportunities. If it's true, I don't really blame him. He hasn't been given much of a chance. Sorry mate but I need to respond. I've seen all the ISP games this year except one. McQueen has been very average all year. I was totally shock...

Re: TIGERS Rozelle Development

I hope at the completion of the tunnel Balmain does finally get to build their leagues club. Of course, Balmain will have long given up their remaining 25% of the Wests Tigers and really have no obligation or affiliation with the Wests Tigers but perhaps if the club is successful they will be good f...

Re: TIGERS Rozelle Development

Its laughable that the construction of this site has been thwarted when you look at the the amount buildings of size and scale that are being built all around Sydney metropolitan area.

Re: Rick Wade the magpie saviour and ours now.

So that is where the $350k the club got for taking a game to NZ went? Lol harsh! They seem to be doing a good job presently so let’s go easy. What a difference twelve months makes because if this pic was posted last year Rothfield would have run it on the front page of the Telegraph asking for an e...

Re: Luke Garner & Lucas Price

Garner has been great and is out performing some of his experienced teammates. But back row is one position we already have great depth in the NRL squad; so I don't see his contract being upgraded this year. I also think he was made captain for a reason. That is the club sees a future for him but th...

Fullback Recruit

This topic in not a slight on Tui or our backup options (Thompson or Kevy) but our club seems hell bent on signing a gun fullback; having recently made approaches to RTS and Nathan Ross. Personally I wouldn't put Ross ahead of Tui but I can see he is the sort of personality Cleary wants in the club ...

Re: Russell Packer - James Hooper article

Rothfield has a major problem with Go and as long as she stays he will never let up on us. I'm actually really proud the Wests Ashfield directors haven't caved into the pressure and moved her on. The sports journo's is a big boys club and they back one another's agendas when it suits. If we become s...

Re: Steve 'Blocker' Roach suggests Wests Tigers move to Perth

The franchise is Wests Ashfields to determine what's best going forward. But for the life of me I can't see how a community club like Wests Ashfield would be serving their community by sending the club to Perth. I'm an old Magpie fan (who loves the Wests Tigers) and when Roach says the Wests Tigers ...

Re: 'The biggest shock of my career': Nofoaluma didn't see axing coming

Nofa had a mixed day for the Magpies yesterday. Yes he scored a couple of tries but he made a number of unforced errors as well. Based on yesterday's performance I can't see Cleary changing the right hand side combination for Nofas inclusion. MWZ position is less certain. The Roosters got around him...

Wests Tigers marketing/media/social media

Regardless of weather our club can turn around the on field performances this year I think the staff we have in the back of house can be really proud of the job they are doing.

Re: Under The Radar

I thought Sue went backwards in 2017. This year there is a lot more competition for spots so unless he finds the form of previous years he might be playing for the Magpies this year and another NRL club in 2019. Nofa Is great. He constantly takes the dirty carries and always seems to come out the ot...

Re: TIGERS Rozelle Development

The last statement I could find (mid 2017) the Balmain Leagues Club had debts a little over $10M (vast majority to the previous Rozelle developer). From what I can make out, in the case of Balmain the football club is the parent company to the leagues club (where as for Western Suburbs it's essentia...

I assume there would be many forum members that are members of Balmain Leagues Club, meaning they should be getting sent annual reports. A quick review of the latest report would reveal the size of today’s liabilities. (Interestingly I couldn’t find a copy of their annual report online. I can see ev...

Re: TIGERS Rozelle Development

I seriously hope for Balmain (and consequently the Wests Tigers) that a development can go ahead and they finally get back to Rozelle. Balmain are only a minority shareholder these days but it's definitely better to have a minority partner that can contribute. My fear for Balmain though is, reported...

Re: Magpies to be 2018 ISP team?

It’s actually an exciting time for Wests Magpies to be re-entering the ISP competition. It’s going to have a lot more exposure and there is talk of adding pacific island teams in 2019.
