Re: Spoon, will it be ours?

I can't remember when they had 2 x wooden spoons in a season.

Just like the team that comes equal 8th with a bad F/A - they are so happy to make the finals - oh wait.

I remember having a Big League mag in the 70s and Mark Harris was the only player at 100kg.
Mark Harris was the only back over 100kgs.
There were plenty of forwards much bigger starting with meat pie Artie and big Bob O'Reilly. Special mention to Bill Hamilton.

Re: Teddy plans to end career at WT

Maybe disloyal is the incorrect term. Maybe just someone with no honour at all, and not someone you would want to rely on with your life. I can't believe that you would see breaking a contract and your word (even if it was to stay with us) as something that can have a positive spin put on it. He di...

Re: Gareth Ellis

Top player and enjoyed his time here but I've always felt a bit cheated that he only played the 3 years with us. Homesick I guess.

Are all the players that we've signed top 25/30?
Are we stuck with a weak ISP next year, too?

Re: Teddy plans to end career at WT

The problem that we've had is signing dud marquee players. We've been paying Woods as a marquee player. I mean that is crazy stuff. Moses and Brooks as well. I can understand Tedesco being paid as a marquee player but that is pushing it and he is the most disloyal player that has ever played NRL. H...

Re: Tim Grant - Commits till 2018..

I fear he's on too much money, but there's nothing we could do about that. He would have been on about 500k at Penrith and Souths which is why they wanted to offload him as he was no longer value for money. While we weren't paying all his salary initially i reckon his option would have been at leas...

Re: Telegraph at it again

Well it is a problem. Sydney having so many teams. it's catch 22 now though, each team is getting funding of 130% of any cap moving forward so no-one will go broke surely. It just means the "bug" clubs stay on top because of TPAs. Lets see how Roosters, Bulldogs, Storm and Broncos go without their w...

Hearing it's a done deal to the Dragons will the Bulldogs paying more than half the $
Apparently way more than half, it's close to the Souths/Farah deal but getting nowhere near the headline traction that we got.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I'd take a look at Lichaa We need a back up hooker, and I reckon he has been limited by des's coaching. Why a backup hooker? We have a potential very good hooker in Liddle. A good backup in Mcillrick. Taylor can play there and I think Teynokds, Brooks or Benji could play there as well. It makes no ...

Re: Teddy plans to end career at WT

Tedesco will do a Freddie Fittler - go to the Roosters and take the golden egg each year. He'll never come back.

Re: Teddy plans to end career at WT

This bloke said no to an offer from the tigers that would have made him the highest paid player the tigers have signed because he wasnt ready to sign and Ivan was putting too much pressure on him yet he instantly takes a less offer from the roosters then wants to come back to finish his career here...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

We aren't going to have the perfect team next year.
The roster is nearly full and there will be some weak positions but I honestly don't expect anything different.

I think Cleary will be aiming to strengthen the weak areas over the next year or two of his three year contract.

Re: Spoon, will it be ours?

Another fighting performance by the boys. In fact it is probably just as good as a win at this time. Newcastle got touched up by the Storm and we lost a close one so the for and against is well in our favour now with 2 games to go. I'm thinking Newcastle must win both and we must lose both now to ge...

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

FWIW I think our 2018 team is far better than our current team, and yes, that includes Tedesco and Woods going. Ok before people jump down my throat I think Tedesco will be missed but I can see Lolohea improving greatly at fullback with a good off season. He's no Tedesco but he'll do alright. Woods ...

Re: Player fire sale just weeks away

If my math is correct then the Bulldogs, Penrith, Roosters and Raiders will only need to get rid of one decent player.
They planned for a $10M cap now its $9.4M - that's only $600k over.

Re: Player fire sale just weeks away

Branko Lee is no better than what we already have for next year. I think Graham is starting to slow down, so his signing doesn't interest me as much as it once did. Klemmer would be a good pick up. I think our club would prioritise keeping Woods though. And i think the Dogs would rather lose Woods ...
