Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

we must be front loading a lot of contracts this year- this squat is no where close to $9M i'd say OK, so someone explain to me what happens if a player leaves after a front loaded contract? Does that mean they can say "well tigers front loaded me with 500K this season. Next season is 80K.... But P...

Re: Josh Mansour

Gus Glowing in praise and support of Josh. " Get the best offer you can get and i will see if I can match it" - Tigers very interested 'Cept it was reported that Gus wouldn't pay more than 450k. They have some younger wingers coming through so they are not desperate. My thoughts is that we offer hi...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Despite Thomspon doing really well i think we could do with a class outside back as our next big signing. preferable a fullback. I was thinking.... Mansour is asking for 500/600K.... We could offer 400k, maybe a little more with this idea: Penrith if they want to keep him now need to pay 450k. The ...

Re: Your team vs Eels

Nofo should not be in anyone's side. OK I see where you are coming from... Nor should Josh A, or the Huth. We need someone who is quick between the ears and knows how to close out a game. Sadly we don't seem have anybody. ... Right. Have you checked the NRL ladder? Josh A and Huth need improvement ...

Re: Tyson Gamble

Exactly. Cleary is not going to play a bloke at fullback who hasn't extensively trained there. Can they give Gamble a run in Reggies at fullback see how he goes or will it hurt Tui's feelings ? Why? Theyre winning most games...we are in real trouble if were trying to manafacture NRL spine positions...

Re: Blake Austin

I don't understand why we would sign Blake Austin when we already have Benji, Brooks, Reynolds and Gamble. I don't understand why we would sign him to play fullback either when we signed Lolohea to do that. We signed Lolohea to play Fullback but replace Moses at 5/8. As a Moses replacement at 5/8 h...

Re: Nofo Must Do His Time

So I'd say in review: #1 Benji commits to the dummy, forces Marsters to come in on Ponga, Nofo burst out for Ross and Ponga picks it. Perhaps Nofo can stay out and let the cover take the centre. So I'd say Benji causes the main problem but Marsters and Nofo manage to take nobody, i.e. you need to b...

Re: Coach or Cattle

I think the Coach and Cattle question can be answered very differently depending on the team. There are Cattle and there are premium Bulls and meat on legs. If you look at us at the moment. Defense(except last game): we were winning on Defense. Defense is a team effort. You need a GREAT coach and so...

Unfortunately you can’t separate his recent comments from this thread. It’s kind of like when we were chasing Packer, and that thread was mainly all about his assault. He happens to be topical atm and for the wrong reasons. Nailed it. I wonder about his price tag though too. Would have to be around...

Re: Untimely injury may end Mansour's time at Panthers

I would match the 550-600k if he plays fullback. He would be able to get our sets off to a great start and provide some good ball support. Mansour/Nofa/Thompson on the flanks with MWZ and Marsters in the centres. Why do people keep saying that. Ah you're a good Winger, so how about Fullback! Sure, ...

After his statements on Instagram/Twitter, No I don't want him at the club. Goes against the no DH policy. Agreed. If we sign Izzy after what he has said, I won't be barracking for the Tigers. He can say what he says, and people can say he is 10000% wrong and rub it in his face (including myself a ...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Gildart is very good young center who would improve out of sight in the NRL. He is deceptively strong and very quick....would not take him much on salary to come over as he would only be on about £50k max in the Super League. On field is no problem. I think it's the off seasons, the week to week tr...

I get some people didn't like the guy but some of the stuff being written about Farah is just hysterical. His biggest "fault" seems to be he gave a crap and had to be dynamited out of a club that others were only too happy to leave. It's a bit much blaming him for the post-2011 malaise and ignoring...
