Re: Wests Tigers provide update on 2019 NRL squad

You’re correct, junior recruitment has been top notch, the problem is the NRL provides no reward or incentive for developing these juniors. When they’re ready for 1st grade they have targets plastered all over them. Hopefully they stay loyal when the time arrives.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Have the so called signings from the Warriors and Raiders played first grade before and could they be walk ins for the squad? Why would you bother asking a question like that when the post literally says, "That's all I have been told"... I can see this thread turning into a game of "Guess Who" over...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

What are thoughts on Ken Sio, sounds like he isn't happy with treatment from the Knights, I like him as a player and think he would be a great centre signing. https://www.foxsports.com.au/nrl/nrl-premiership/teams/knights/winger-ken-sio-is-set-to-walk-out-on-the-knights-after-pathetic-contract-offe...

Re: Jnr Development Signings

We sign the best batch of youngsters the club has had for years and still some people complain? None of them are even in our top 30, it's just building the talent across the club. If they're good enough they'll play first grade in the next few years. I think Mikaele will be in our round one lineup ...

Re: Wests Tigers provide update on 2019 NRL squad

The announcement is at a strange time as is the 3 players elevated to the top 30. Still 3 weeks to go until start of preseason and no decision on the coach either way. Something’s brewing. We must be close to announcing a real coach, albeit one that won’t be bringing too much cattle across immediat...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

When half the forum was blowing up at Ivan Cleary, the other half suggested to calm the farm as we dont know what has happened. i cant believe what Pascoe has said has been so conveniently missed by most on here and swept under the carpet; ‘‘ Once he [Ivan Cleary] talked to Penrith, he compromised ...

Re: Ryan Matterson signs Offical

Matterson is our best signing in years. Young, big, mobile, good defender can pass and kick. He’s as good on an edge or lock. I’d have him at lock ET likely misses out. If MCK can improve again our backrower last will look good for next year. Lawrence, Matterson, MCK/ET. Not a bad rotation. What ab...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Ivan did a good job in changing the culture at our club but where are all the scrum base moves & blind side raids that had the commentators talking when Mick Potter was coach - we were exciting and enterprising back then with our short side raids, run arounds, 40/20’s and all round deceptive plays. ...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

If he stays on and has agreed to terms with the panthers for 2021 then we need a coaching director to handle all player retention/recruitment above Cleary. Someone who could also fill in on a temporary role if Cleary wants out mid season. I've always thought Sheens would have been great at this rol...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Tigers fans are passionate which is why we turn up to games more than any other Sydney teams with our poor records. The issue here is not Cleary. He’s not Craig Bellamy. It’s the disrespect of our club with the non response and being effectively caught out negotiating behind closed doors with Penri...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

by The fact that it is effecting our recruitment is a real issue b ecause at the end of the day it’s the quality of your roster that wins you matches more than who coaches your team. Our team will go backwards in 2019 without at least two more quality signings. You would also have to assume if CHN ...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

If I may, I want to talk about us fans for a moment. We loved Ivan but that has turned sour. He hasn't yet taken us to the finals but a vast majority of us believed in him and wanted him long term. Over 200 pages now suggest that as fans, many of us have not only lost the love but resent him being ...

No thanks Ok Nuck - whom do you recommend??? Maguire or ivan If Toovey and Maguire are in the same mould - and you say no to one - you have to say no to the other.
