Re: Wests Tigers Jersey's 2019..

Interesting thing in this colour debate, I too personally like a predominantly Gold (orange) jersey. The Cincinnati Bengals have been raised in this conversation. They being another Tiger themed mascot mostly play in a predominately black jersey. https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/1OBMGhqXiAoNJKHGMrat...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Just throwing it out there! If brooks left and hope he doesn’t just for the record. But if he did, with all the talk around about good halves options are in shortage. Would it be worth throwing a bone to some young half on the cusp of first grade and seeing how he goes with Reynolds and Marshall? T...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Agree. Probably worth 750k to 800k. No more at this stage. In your 80 years or so of supporting Balmain/ Wests/Wests Tigers have we ever had a great, and I emphasise great 1/2 back? Tommy R and G Freeman were good...... tough as nails, but Brooks has the ability to top them both by a long stretch. ...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I'd sign Brooks for 4 years for 800-900k Imo he is only worth about 700k. He has no Origin experience. He has no finals experience. Basically he hasnt performed under pressure at the top level. Until he does he doesnt warrant that kind of money and id be happy for the club to draw a line around tha...

Re: Will we make the 8 in 2019?

I will wait and see who the two players are before making my decision. If it was Tapau/JWH and say Hayne, I would say Yes.

Re: Will we make the 8 in 2019?

At this stage, I’d say we have a weaker squad than last season. Can’t go backwards in this league and expect to go up. Unless we have some late squad changes, it’s a no from me. Cant agree that we have a weaker squad than last year, however 2 more solid players will certainly help making the eight ...

If he wants to stay in the NRL would take him short term (2 years max) dependant on what we pay (no more than 500k).

Outside those terms I would look elsewhere.

Would your preference be to take him, or Jennings?
Neither thanks.

Gee...I wonder who is Momo? :roll: :roll:

Is taupau to the Rooster official?
How could they possibly afford him? Fergusons wage would not even cover the 2 wingers they have already signed, let alone Angus. You can bet we are paying more for Matterson than what they were paying him.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

The opinion seems to be that we have a few dollars left to spend in the cap. How much did Matterson cost us and what is left to spend? Approximately.

Re: New coach.. Who should we target?

Go for the best, if we have the dough. Offer Bennett the 2 year contract he is seeking with the Broncos. 3 year, if that what it takes. He might bring some of those great youngsters with him.

Re: Nathan Cleary

Cleary has 2 full seasons to run on his contract, to end 2020. We are all aware. Is that not enough to entice new players over? Some might only be signed for 2 seasons anyway, and there's currently no guarantee that Ivan stays or goes in 2021. Does anyone really think Penrith will for sure sign Ivan...

Re: Ryan Matterson

Matterson will be a great signing. Probably looking for a starting role which I think he will get. I dont understand the concerns regarding concussion. Yes he left the field after the football was kicked to his head and was out for several weeks, however he had wrist/hand surgery during that time. H...

Re: Farah set to play on after agreeing to terms

Seems like that if we dont sign Benji or Farah we get the Munsters and Clearys yeah. Dont think its that simple guys. Reality is a biter pill. Exactly. These guys aren't stopping us signing the top line players or young players that might become top line players. They are squad replacements for the...

Re: Nathan Cleary

Nathan is fast losing his shine for me as well. One thing is clear, he wants to stay at the Panthers. I think that before he signs up again to a long contract and gives away that leverage, the Cleary's are trying this coup to get them reunited at their place of choice. I wouldn't be surprised if th...

This weeks game could go either way. It could galvanise the boys through a bit of adversity, we could also get smashed. At least a cricket score is the norm so it would be hard to say what a demoralised squad looks like... wait to see which one?
I can and I must admit I am very afraid.
