Re: Nathan Cleary

Love it, Cleary Sr is awesome at playing mind games and the press. But this story means a few things. Yes WT are interested in Cleary Jr in a year or so. Yes that will place more pressure on Panthers this year to perform, knowing they may lose their key playmaker soon. And yes Brooks knows he must s...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

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. They offered Matt Lodge 500k a year for 3 years but he knock it back and signed with the Broncos for 1 year on 85k apparently. If it was any team other then Broncos or ...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I agree that they shouldn't be role models, they should be footballers, in theory. In practice, they have to be role models inasmuch as they represent the companies that sponsor our team. Companies want to sponsor a good brand, and if players drag our club through bad press, the company is less like...

Re: Salary Cap

Just read an article that the Bulldogs are cap compliant and the NRL have signed off on Woods and Foran. I don't recall reading of them letting anybody go other than Graham and Reynolds? Am I missing something or is this just another scar on the face of the NRL salary cap? No, you missed nothing. G...

Re: Russell Packer emerges as shock captaincy candidate at Wests Tigers

Cleary makes an interesting few points on Reynolds. Firstly not just that they signed him because he had certain qualities (qualities that our club lacks) but that they don't want him to be "Tigers-ified", they want him to continue doing what he does and bring the team with him. Secondly, that most...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

We have a lot of players that can do a job in the nrl, but few standouts. That's the problem. A team full of solid players should be competitive, but if a top side kicks into gear we can't match them consistently. We don't have individually brilliant players in our backline. If our opponents choose...

Re: MOYLAN MAYBE RELEASED ..

Maloney is good, but he doesn't stay at any one club that long. He goes looking for the dollars, he won't hang around too long. Two years max. If true him to Panthers, it will be good for this year, but not for their building of their squad long term. Maybe I'm just disappointed though, I was hoping...

Re: Cronk - Roosters Official..

Not 100% certain, but fairly certain, the cap in 2017 was $7m. In 2018, it's $9.4m, plus 6 development players, plus a couple of other allowed payments (like car etc) totalling about $200k or $300k. Still not finalised though, the Players Association won't sign off on it, they want more, it may end ...

Re: Chris McQueen signs - Official

"Even before it was announced in mid-April that McQueen would be joining the Tigers on a three-year deal from 2018 the 2014 premiership winner was talking with the Titans team doctor and specialists about the need for surgery." So, that means it is a pre-existing injury, one which was known about (a...

Re: Cronk - Roosters Official..

Judging by there good management of the cap, I wouldnt be surprised if they could fit him in. Good management my arse! There is a fine line between good management and subtle rorting and with the calibre of players the Roosters have stacked into their team for next season they have crossed that lin...

David Mead, Corey Oates, Josh Papalii, Junior Paulo, Felise Kaufusi, Dylan Edwards, Tyrone May, Angus Crichton, Joel Thompson, Boyd Cordner, Zane Tetevano. Would be happy with any of them. 2 or 3 of that mob would be massive. Imagine si...

Re: Mitchell Pearce

The harsh reality is that we will play no part in the player merry go round that is about to ensue. As usual, we'll be like the starving dogs, chained to the porch as we watch meat platters being passed around right under our nose. Better energy would be spent discussing who we can attract for 2019...

Re: Mitchell Pearce

If Roosters get Cronk AND they keep Pearce, surely it would be the first time in history (since the beginning of State of Origin in 1980) that both NSW and QLD Origin halfbacks were in the same club. That is ridiculous. One upside, Cronk would get a look at two of the biggest cheating clubs in the N...
