Re: Nathan Cleary

unless Brooks wants to leave I dont think we have a need of Cleary. I agree Cleary and Brooks are different players but I think neither of them are totally comfortable being an organiser of the team. If that means we loose Ivan in 2021, sobeit. I'd rather spend the $$$$ on beefing up the forwards in...

Re: Wests Tigers head to Western Sydney Stadium

As my moniker implies I'm a bit of a dinosaur. When I lived back in Sydney I was always under the impression your club would get a bit of a bonus with home ground rounds by haveing fans go back to the club for a few beers and a feed after the game. With x number of home games now at Parramatta preci...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

WT can do something if true- they ave a valid contract till end of 2020 season. Cleary sits it out. Im not worried at all. Dont believe this latest rumour one bit.

We cant even get the article for defamation I reckon, heading was sensational but the article was nothing.

Re: Wests Tigers players have been involved in drug raids

An old watering hole of mine the Illinois, grew up locally, was a good pub once upon a time...had my 18th there I too frequented the Illinois for many a year (1987- 2002) and spent many a weekend enjoying the football and races on TV along with more than a few beers. Lamenting a Magpies loss or cel...

Re: Your Opinion on were Two New Teams Should Be Based In the NRL

Perth, 2nd Brisbane- both only created by relocating sydney teams using new refreshed names. I'd also look to creating 20 teams, a premier tier of 10 and comp tier of the other 10. With promotion and relegation. Also a cooperative player draft with clubs and players. There are a lot of issues within...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

I support Cleary and want him to remain at the club for the rest of his contract however, I wold certainly not be offering any extension until at least mid next season. WT suffered badly by being stampeded into an extension for Sheens when he did not merit it, and Cleary has not yet earned an exten...

Re: **Live game thread**

At least we helped play Souths into some good form leading up to the finals. WT are sure in a pickle where only good, quality recruitment can make us competitive for 2019. But I'm not sure that will / can happen anymore- cattle gone and as usual WT sniffing around the bargain basement corner. I thin...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I have absolutely no hope that Peachey will even consider us- probably Bulldogs / Roosters / Sharks / Eels Well they have an extra 500k Wonder if the preemptive Panthers move on I.C has pushed everyone away from committing to WT? It would be interesting to hear from the club on that aspect. If so, ...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Are we now back to hoping for the best with signing Ethan Lowe for our crowning move in 2019 recruitment?

I'm out of hope now for anyone better, until the last frantic minute before season start.

Re: Over feel good stories

Need a real story- WT to devote extra time over the off season in basic ball handling and ball security skills along with sessions to assist calmness on the field, not getting flustered and staying focused. Those 2 areas of improvement would do wonders for next season. Edit- the experiment with 5 co...

Re: Salary Cap Rorting | Ideas on a Potential Solution

I'm sick of hearing about the innocent players. In the past- players signing 2 x contracts with one a false one for the front office, underhand payments directly to players in envelopes aside from their regular paid into bank account salaries. PLayer managers signing players names and then later whe...

Re: Sharks in Trouble again.

Why should not the penalty be at this stage, whilst it is under investigation, Sharks are unable to compete in the current competition. Stops clubs making a mockery of the cap and that even 'only historical' past infractions have an immediate effect on the club until situation resolved. It will spee...

Re: Sharks in Trouble again.

What I don't get is that every team penalised for the salary cap had penalties applied now, so whether or not Sharks are cap compliant in 2018 is irrelevant to happenings in 2015 and 2017. Agree 100%. Me thinks Greenberg is being too smart by half. Also recall the criticism of the bunker- Greenberg...

Re: Sharks in Trouble again.

Think we are seeing the symptoms of a weak NRL with little vision for the future and no leadership to get us there. Some clubs are exploiting the lack of leadership- Roosters, Bronco's, Storm, Sharks etc and doing their own thing with little fear of restraints, checks and penalties. The others, are ...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Farah is certainly a bandaid for Liddle to either come good in 2019 with longevity on the field or he has to go and we recruit replacement hooker for 2020. Marshall will hopefully be in the reserve too marking time as Reynolds takes over at 5/8 at start of 2019. Hopefully....................... If e...
