Re: MR PASCOE PLEASE

ITS TEAM, not players. OH NO we won't sign our 30! We should sign some available players and get our roster up to 30 peeps, and if we spend 600K on say a Hooker or some problem we think we have this week then we will be fine next year, right. It's TEAM not Players! At the start of the year we gelled...

Re: Injury progress

Point being what? You want to get rid of them. Marshall and Rochow yes Go back to sleep mate. Marshall has had a strong influence on Brooksy’s Resurrected form, and has kept us in few games and been a big reason why we are in the eight. Maybe he should be rested for a few games here and there but h...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Mybe is a good kid and quality player....been poorly coached....will they use him at 1? I think Mbye is a player without a position. He is fast and elusive but just does not have the smarts as far as I can see to inject himself into the game when he is needed. I can see others rate him, but he just...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

If we're looking at Hookers apart from Jake Granville, here are a few off contract options. James Segeyaro, great player and brings a lot of energy. Also represented Papua New Guinea in the 2017 RLWC. Siliva Havili, still fairly young at 25 years of age, can play 80 minutes. Also represented Tonga ...

Barba, Taupau, Cleary and Rona please Ivan These players are so important to our re-building and the club has the money. What. Ok Cleary, yes/kinda. He would be a stable halves partner with Brooks moving to 5/8 (I think this will suit him more, but I take the point of others that he should practice...

Re: You’re dropped!

Our forwards laid no platform tonight - our backs didn't lose us this game. They had no ball and when they did, there was no space. That's a worry because it was the best forward pack we could put on the field. We never really got into that game. After the Merrin sin bin, it was all Penrith until h...

Re: **Live game thread**

Well that game just shows how much we need an impact player .. ?? a good strong centre, and an impact back rower .. !! Eisenhuth, Rochow, and McQueen are all too similar to each other, they will do their job as required in defence, but in attack they offer little to no spark at all .. !! 100% Be it...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Am I the only one happy with Brooks and not interested in Nathan Cleary (except for his goalkicking). Given how well Brooks is going behind a mediocre pack, I am pretty happy with him. Get him behind the pack that Nathan Cleary plays behind and youd find Brooks would go to another level. NC on the ...

Re: This game is important , maybe very important

I think this is our biggest test. In saying that i feel people over estimate the Penrith roster. Like its good but its hardly the benchmark. Bingo. Penrith are tough and it is their home ground. But I am not seeing Campbell Reagan Gillard and Trent Merrin dominating Packer and Matalino. I am seeing...

Re: Panthers v Wests Tigers: Cleary returns; Fonua dropped

I applaud the club for taking a tough stance on discipline. It’s not the approach I take with my staff though as penalising a player by missing games ultimately penalises the team. More prudent measure would have been to flog him at training with Ronny Palmer until midnight. That is unless he has f...

Re: KLEMMER TO PARRA??????

Everyone is pretty Anti-Des. It's kind of understandable. As usual I disagree with everyone. Yet I think he actually is a great coach and did wonders at Manly. Remember he kept that big group of stars, Lyon, Watmough, the Stewarts, Matai, etc Together. There was HUGE dysfunction at the board level w...

Re: KLEMMER TO PARRA??????

Don't see how any club goes near Des Hasler ever again. He has effectively consigned the dogs to also-rans for the next 3 years... not that anybody except their own supporters are upset by this. Raelene Castle is more to blame than Des which is why she bailed out. Dont think so. Des had free reign ...

Re: Fonua

If Fonua performs (and hey if he keeps this effort up all year, FANTASTIC). That makes an interesting question for our backline. We never had the issues on the Kev/MWZ side as we did with the Nofo/Marsters side. I think MWZ is underrated in his defense. Clearly he combined well with Fonua and that's...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

The thing about potential is that it means nothing if your recruitment team doesnt know what they are doing. If you trust the guys whose job it is to identify future NRL talent that is all that matters. At the moment and for the first time in many years i think we have a coach and a recruitment tea...

But how did they get to the point that he was the best option as coach? Or even consideed? Our next door neighbour when we were growing up, worked with Jones. He knew that I was a huge Tiger fan, he told me that Jones would give to Tigers a premiership but would wreck the club. He didn't deliver a ...
