Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I’ve shed my kids blood - he fell down the stairs of the Keith Barnes stand as a toddler because I was too busy watching the game!! About 18 years ago now. Similarly, My youngest son did his ankle playing footy on the hill. I had to piggyback him all the way back to the car, parked near the old Mob...

Wow, for a coach to say that is pretty honest. I'm shocked at the lack of spin.

Good on you Ivan.
Shocked......yes
Impressed..........Absolutely!

Re: Wests Tigers strengthen position in Macarthur region..

For all you pro Balmain whingers - the original agreement when the joint venture started was that Wests and Balmain would maintain a team in the highest comp under NRL. Sheens destroyed that agreement when he convinced the board that all the Wests State Cup players should be included wit h BRET to ...

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

I really like the team as well but just think we also need to find game time for liddle as well as i think he has a great future. That could mean swapping MM and Liddle or having Liddle on bench in place of Grant. I know ET could fill in as hooker as well but we need to keep Liddle in the loop I he...

Honestly don't think any club will have a better half running around in ISP next year than Benji Marshall. Broncos were blessed to be able to call him up when Hunt then McCullough got injured and still play someone like that in the finals series.
And what a great influence he will be on Gamble

Re: Nathan Cleary

Brooks only signed for 2 years (should be off contract by end of 2019. On a cheap contract for a half back too. By 2019 Brooks will want a bigger contract allowing us to let him pursue that whilst we allow our man IVAN to get his boy to our proud club. Smart move by the Clearys too. Let Nathan lear...

Re: Nathan Cleary

Everyone is seeing this as tigers chasing Nathan? I see it is Ivan trying to secure his next contract. The tigers coaching role has been very hostile for the last hal of a decade. If tigers go ok and the possibility of grabbing an in form half, as well as a possible retirement of Bellamy and also B...

Re: AN EMOTIONAL Benji Marshall has opened up on his rollercoaster rugby league career & the return “home” to Wests Tig

Garbage! It’s obvious what Cleary and the club are doing. They are trying to bring passion and belief into the Tigers. That’s why Marshall is here - and Hodgson and Reynolds. The new recruits are mostly no nonsense heads down bums up type players- that to give us some backbone (add Ron Palmer in fo...

Re: AN EMOTIONAL Benji Marshall has opened up on his rollercoaster rugby league career & the return “home” to Wests Tig

Valuable salary cap space? We're still well unders on spend. Signing Benji hasn't ruined anything for us. He'll be handy when the injuries hit. If we are still well unders CB we have a lot of issues , if we haven't spent within 500 k of the total cap as of June 1 we can and will get fined Too many ...

Re: AN EMOTIONAL Benji Marshall has opened up on his rollercoaster rugby league career & the return “home” to Wests Tig

It makes perfect sense to me: An able back up half, great experience helping out the younger guys, an excellent football brain - and probably not a hell of a lot of coin tied up. What doesn't make sense? It's 2017 not 2005 His tank is empty and we wasted some salary cap on being feel good ,nicey ni...

I'm pretty sure he is in something like 850....how much are you willing to pay him to play wing There is...

Knights reportedly 2.4mil under the cap and need to spend at least 1.9mil more before they are salary cap compliant for next year.
Apparently Roosters have the same problem!! :shock:

Sorry I can't get that picture on that fateful Saturday with Benji in his Auckland Blues jersey and his lacklustre performances in 2012 and 2013

It might be all warm ,cuddly and feel good , but it makes no rugby league sense to me

Re: Who Improves in 2018

From what I saw at the back end of the season and what I’ve seen in the World Cup I think Lolohere will blossom this coming season. He has the talent, is getting fitter, is in his preferred position and seems to have a positive attitude about his move. Add to that Cleary’s calm guidance and I reckon...

Re: Anxious Reynolds wants to repay Tigers..

Paul Kent on 360 tonight buying into the Tigers rebuild. Said He liked the ‘no hero’ roster and believes we can make the 8. As I’ve said before I’m sold on our buying philosophy- I’m more excited about the season starting than I have been for years.

Re: JEREMY MARSHALL-KING

We tend to overreact to everything. Tui takes an intercept and he’s going to be the answer to all our problems. Fonua misses one tackle and he’s a dud. I for one am excited about our roster - it looks solid. I’m sure we will be better than before. Will we make the 8? I don’t know. Potentially we can...
