I am happy for him to play this role in the off season as long as he's not playing much of a role in 1st grade in the footy season.
I love Benji and I thought he was great last year in patches. I also really hope that he doesn't see that much first grade especially when he is carrying an injury.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I might get crucified for this but I honestly think we should target Hayne. I think he is exactly what we need. His back end of the season was really good. We do need a centre and someone of his calibre and his valuable experience is too hard to turn down. Thoughts?? I also heard he is being target...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

If Bennett is off-contract for 2020 (and provided he wants to coach WT), why would Webster or Hodgson have to coach for at least 2 years? We only need them for 1 season in that scenario. Yes we would, which is why it’s the exact scenario I have been advocating for weeks to happen. Why would we be m...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Fact is - I'd be surprised if he's not in the bottom 4 starting second rowers in the game... And he's our "best"? - I see that as a real issue... Who is better than him ? On the left edge I'd have Kikau, Wade Graham (pretty close) & Tariq Sims (pretty close). I see Lawrence as one of the better edg...

Josh Aloiai, (this is make or break year for him so?) Luke Brooks, (sign him now) Michael Chee-Kam, (expendable) Robbie Farah, (retirement) Mahe Fonua, (back to ESL) Tyson Gamble, (doubt that he has it but dependent on his 2019 performance) Luke Garner, (this one could go either way) Chris Lawrence...

Re: For all the people moaning about signings

Honestly I think we've done better than basically every club. Mbye and Matterson are two of the best signings in that list. Barba, CHN, Ferguson & Woods are at about the same level. I think Barba is the best player on that list but he is a risk. I think our squad looks decent. We need a couple of si...

Rapana and Fusitu'a to improve our depth in the backs.

Re: TEDDY NOT FITTING IN

Yeah congratulations Tedesco for taking a million bucks per year to join an already star-studded roster and win a premiership. Let's all pat him on the back for such a courageous and bold decision. See, there are these comments in the other thread about how we should aim to be more successful, more...

This is great news. He looked to be one of the top halves in the game this season so I'm not surprised.

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Simply if Ivan does not agree to extend his current deal with the club he WILL NOT be the head coach for 2019. Everything should be finalized one way or the other prior to pre-season, but this is affecting recruitment big time & has already cost us one signing. But why is there the desire to extend...

We need WT to respond this week. Sick of this dragging us down.

Surprised everyone is bouncing off the walls at the alleged 4 year contract Nathan is about to sign at Penrith

Honestly it is good news for WT's , we have other issues we need to fix 1st
I agree. This is good news for us. We need to fix other areas in our team as a higher priority.
