Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I agree, Mbye played well at fullback last year.
Personally I’d chase Dufty as a specialist fullback who can turn a game with his lightning feet and move Mbye into the centres - then we’d be in overdrive .. this would address our pace issue.

Re: Luke Brooks

Good points, unfortunately the NRL don’t reward loyalty or development. I also followed Balmain and enjoyed the loyalty shown by our star players - some of them international players who wore the tigers jersey with pride and never considered a switch. I think Luke Brooks was in his comfort zone here...

Re: Zane Musgrove

Seriously, this thread is sounding like an episode of Dr Phil ... Musgrove May have been caught up in a tussle in the night club and fingered as an aggressor - who know? In any case all this banter is pure conjecture. The guy is adding some aggression to our pack - good signing, let’s give him the b...

Re: Luke Brooks

No I’m not guessing about the back loading , just going on what it said in the report that I read when it was announced, if it is true then we have learnt bugger all. What did the reporter say..? “it was 0n a backended contract” I found the article.It was written in the telegraph so as far as i am ...

Re: Zane Musgrove

It happened this week. Ok then it just seems like bad luck on our behalf. No it wasn't bad luck for Wests Tigers, He faced court in September 2018 on a similar charge and was lucky to get off with a $1000 fine and a severe warning from the judge. Wests Tigers would have been aware of that September...

Re: WT Player Recruitment & Retention for 2019

We need to replace what we're signing though. Thompson would probably come cheap, and he's handy as a back up fullback, Liddle will be resigned if the Pom is on the money and Lawrence will probably play for a modest contract as long as it is not insulting. Aloiai may get another gig if he improves....

Likely to benefit from having a professional coach who is interested in developing him, rather than one who seems better suited to the under 10’s, given his obsession with having his son in the side
You nailed it.

wade graham is a weird one. solid defender and adds a bit extra in attack. whenever we play against him, he doesn't seem particularly dangerous.

not a big fan and think he's overrated but i'd probably be in the minority
I’m with you, Wade Graham is overrated.

Re: Luke Brooks

Agreed about Fifita. Not what we want. Apparently he was the one that cost the Sharks a million dollar a year sponsor. If Musgrove can fire then I'm actually liking our forward pack. Especially if this Mikaele is as good as everyone is saying. I like ET but I really wish we had a lock that runs ove...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I’m not buying the Reynolds rumor either. Nothing wrong with having both Marshall and Reynolds in the squad....Marshall should only be getting circa $250k. The parra kiwi 2nd rower and Jennings would be handy additions. Maybe just a prop and Quick winger short. Both the Jennings boys would be ok. M...

sounds like non-sense to me. In one of Madge’s Press conference’s, he said he loved Josh renoylds as a player, loves how he’s is a competitor and he’s his sort of player. All rubbish.
I heard Madge say that also, however can you believe anyone in NRL world these days - more like Wally World.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

The Wests Tigers are believed to be shopping former Canterbury Bulldog Josh Reynolds for the 2020 season. Reynolds, 29, signed a four year contract with the Wests Tigers during the 2017 season, believed to be around 3 million over four years. In his first season with the Tigers, Reynolds was forced...

Cha-ching!
Sign on the line, Luke!
Sound familiar?
Give him a deadline to sign, we don’t want another episode of Bucky Beaver - who was always going to the chooks but strung us along because he was too gutless to come clean.

Re: Zane Musgrove

Twal size is against him as a lock, we need to groom a future front row rotation. Twal and Zane are it for me. Stil think we are a prop short. I actually like Matterson as a lock, after watching some of his games this hear back the last few weeks it showed he is a 5/8/centre/backrower - he can ball...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Lack of speed, and height in our outside backs, along with no real goal kicker will bites us in 2019. When your a boarder line top eight side you can not afford to be dropping games because of poor goal kicking. Anyway so far we have not addressed these issues and with one spot left, it’s hard to s...

Re: Zane Musgrove

If ever there was a lock in-waiting it is Alex Twal....Not only because he's called Alex like myself, but he just oozes class in that position when given the opportunity....I predict big things from him this year.... :sign: I don’t see Twal as a lock, he is too rigid and runs with a bolt upright st...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Walker would be handy and I've love to get rid of McQueen and free up 400k per season to try and lure Hess. Agree on both points, Willow. Though I think it'll be rather difficult to find a club willing to take McQueen on. We'd probably have better luck trying to move someone like Elijah Taylor. McQ...
