Re: Help Needed

Phil Gould makes some good comments on Twitter. One person asked him about TPAs recently and if they should be made public. Phil replied that the NRL would be too embarassed to make TPAs public right now and he didn’t think they would ever be. That in itself, coming from someone ‘in the know’ is dam...

Re: Farah floats idea of walking off into sunset with Benji

Once upon a time the club would have offered each of them top money and have their contracts on the table very early. Nowadays though, the club will be sorting out their main roster and seeing what coin is left to offer Benji and Farah. I think if they want to play on it will be on limited money and...

Re: Nathan Cleary

I only saw the start of last nights game but when the Bulldogs made their first break Brooks started to run down the bloke but pulled out of the race fairly quickly. I got the feeling that his hamstrings aren’t the best either. All I can say Happy about your last paragraph is it probably proves aga...

Re: Sue to dogs

I’m sure if we really wanted to keep him we would have. Obviously he wasn’t in Ivan’s plans moving forward.

Re: Run Home and Finals Hopes

We are realistically 3 wins from the top 8. 4 points out of the 8 but nearly 30 points worse off For/against (equates to another win needed), and we have to play the Raiders down there - our bogey team that always puts points on us. Anyway, Farah and Mbye have made us a better team, so here’s hoping.

Re: Farah won't feel guilty if Wests Tigers upset Rabbitohs

Amazing when you have a decent coach handling things in a mature way there is respect on both sides. Shows why Souths are on the way up. They have quality people running their club that can man manage. Huh? The basic difference is that Souths are winning more games. Only a few months ago we were wi...

Low hopes

For the first 10 weeks of this season I’ve had high hopes of a competitive team and a win. Sadly, after the last few games my hopes have fallen very, very low. I need this mob to pick me up tomorrow. Back to being competitive and still in the game up to the last few minutes would be good but a surpr...

Re: Oliver Clark

A guy who was at todays ISP game said only two forwards were worth paying - Alex Twal and Oliver Clarke. He said the other forwards ran across field too much.

I asked him how Clarke played and he said he ran aggressively and very solid in defense.

Maybe not the plodder at all.

Re: Has this year been a success?

We are a mile behind Souths, so this year is a fail.

I’m losing a carton - that’s my win/fail estimator.

If we came second last and souths were wooden spooners then, to me, that’s a win.

Ok so I’m different.

Re: Father and son broncos or roosters

lets be real, no need signing young cleary, if we dont have some decent forwards to look after him, so unless Ivan gets his finger out and signs us 3-4 forwards for next year bring him here would be useless. I like it. Don’t sign any quality halves or backs until we sign a handful of top forwards. ...

Re: WT Player Retention/Recruitment/Loss List

The way I see it the club has 3 big calls coming up on player futures at WT- Brooks, McQueen & Reynolds. McQueen hasn't threatened for first grade selection all season, Reynolds has hardly been able to get and stay on the field and Brooks continues to underwhelm. We might have to suggest ESL and po...

Quite a few people seemed to have watched Oliver Clark in Penrith’s lower grades so maybe t...
