Re: Ivan Cleary opens up on Penrith return and controversial Tigers exit

i feel like im sticking up for cleary too much but i honestly feel that he did what he thought was best. he had a contract here for 2 years he wanted to honour but an extra 3 years we couldn't offer but someone else could so he took that. right now, his son and himself have got a massive 5 year con...

Re: Ivan Cleary opens up on Penrith return and controversial Tigers exit

He is utter scum. I can't believe he is pretending like he has done nothing wrong, "the decision was mutual", and all professional, honest, blah blah blah. Tigers fans have thanked me... Wow. Doctors have a word for that pal, "Delusional". :crazy All I want on this filth, is one final chapter. Packe...

Re: Hayne plane

Yoss, I made the Ivan Cleary thread in August. You said Gus was Zero chance of bringing him back and zero chance he left the Tigers for 2019 anyway. So I'm a little worried you declared Hayne "zero chance" of coming to the Tigers. Hard to picture Hayne as a Dog or a Dragons though. So who knows.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Anyone got any idea how much cap we have to spend for 2019 Obviously the more we have to spend the better quality we can buy when they come on the market Not interested in if we offload players because that's just here say for now Would we have a million $ Maybe 1.2 million? 800 thousand Any ideas ...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I've always been against signings like Hayne as well, but now I'm thinking maybe he's that sort of x-factor player we need to lift us up out of the 'also-rans' group. I doubt he is, but we need to try something different, otherwise another year of excuses like coach with previous coach's roster, cou...

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

Cleary the terrible, saying 'feel free to call me let's chat', sounds like he is inviting them to switch teams also. What an absolute low act. And Gus is a manipulative piece of work that one. he doesn't speak the truth, he speaks what serves his purpose. Wouldn't listen to him and expect any truth ...

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

Ok, so now that we’ve acquired Maguire any ideas on who if anyone he might bring along in terms of .coaching staff. He has former Norths coach Ben Gardiner assisting him with the Kiwis, along with Nathan Cayless... Im not sure who he had with him during his time at Souths but wasnt farahs bro a con...

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

Exactly, it might be a romantic idea to have Cleary scrub toilets for the next 2 years, but it means we’d have two coaches on the books. But I thought the law experts on here said that wasn’t possible lol. Barrett has submitted a resignation letter. Cleary hasnt. There-in lies the difference...most...

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

I'm all for signing Bennett for 2019 and hope it happens but if we were only able to get him in 2020 isn't that the same as the riff signing Cleary for 2021 when he is off contract... Just asking... Na, it's very different Geo. Wayne's club is happy for him to go elsewhere, as he isn't steering a r...

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

Penrith are now sitting pretty. They sacked Griffen late in the season, installed a lame duck dummy coach for a couple of weeks and now have the coach they and their star player wanted. Ivan Cleary has struck the jackpot with a possible large redundancy payment and a long term very well paid coachi...

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

Yeh that's what I took from it too, we can't wait 12 months for Bennett, Cleary has crapped in our nest Yes we can It’s a tough one but I think I’d go with Maguire. I think we need to get on with things now. It is tough but i think recruitment and the sponsorship etc would be better with Bennett th...

Rochow has a long term injury and rehab I thought. He's staying put surely.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

When Ivan started here, they said not to worry, and I bought into it, I admit that openly. First year, we bought toilers, hard workers, no superstars (our one superstar left) and they said we were building a culture. They said the plan was to upgrade them in the second and third years, replace indiv...

Re: The POM - another update plse

We had enough to lure Nathan. So assuming Matterson is around $400k, should have enough for the last two players to be regular quality first graders (my guess is $400k each). Not arguing with your estimate but, if we've only got $800k left in the kitty, we have a very average roster to show for it....
