Finucane went to the next level at Melbourne. He is streets ahead of Eisenhuth.

Finucane is a very good player
Never let's the team down and always gives 110%
He would be a great addition to our team
But he would also be one of the last players Bellamy would let go
Pass on Kasiano
Great player 3 or 4 years ago but has dropped off alot
I think Mau from the ells would be a great addition
Also another big front rower would be handy
Also Walker from Manly would be a great pick up
Handy in a number of positions and a very competitive player
We need those nigley players to get under the skin of the opposition
It can unsettle them
I have the confidence in Madge
A proven coach and he will make the changes we need to win
But he will need time to make it happen
He can only work as fast as the cap will let him
So lets all give him a chance and enjoy
While I'm at it
Enjoy the off season guys and girls
I am looking forward to next season as I am sure we all are
Let's see what Santa Madge brings for us for Christmas

I had quick scan through the Storm roster, I would consider targeting Christian Welch if the Musgrove signing doesn’t happen. Welch has been solid, reliable and consistent bench middle forward. Plays hard with a bit aggression, current contract expires at the end of 2019, so he’d be thinking about his next contract.
Yea, I would look at raiding the Storm too.
https://www.smh.com.au/sport/nrl/storm- ... 50goa.html

McGuire was once an assistant coach with Bellamy. I suspect he may know Fonua and Roccow from his time there.

I could definitely see us doing some raiding of the forwards, but also too maybe a swap on an outside back. Unsure if Curtis Scott or William Chambers could be poached. Kasiano is ofcourse the name everyone is talking about, and we could use his impact in the front (if he host his inconsistency that would be awesome). But many of their forwards would be welcome in our pack.
Yeah he had Rochow at Souths also

I couldn't see Finucane succeeding at the WT's , we have enough workaholics , we need impact in our pack

He'd only be slight upgrade on Eisenhuth and double the money
One of the funniest quotes this year. Finucanne a slight upgrade on Eiso. It’s like comparing a Bentley to a Great Wall.
He’s in the top 5 locks in the game Bellamy knows how good he is. Has big impact and works hard with no ego. Dogs letting him go for TREX is one of the worst all time recruitment decisions.
And what impact will he add to our side ......

Eisenhuth is still highly underrated by many and yes slightly was a probably an understatement but in reality we need impact .....and he doesn't add any

I like Eisenhuth gets a rough deal here does a lot of stuff that goes un noticed off the ball but you would have Finucane over him in a heartbeat if it was a choice between the two..

Running hard and tackling hard would make an impact in our pack..Something our starting Props could do..looking at you Pakerlino..
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..

IC wouldn't dare
I guess if it is consistent with Maguire's plan who knows. He's demonstrated already he is prepared to move players along to sign others.
i hope i missed something, but who has he moved on, and who has he signed?
It was suggested that with Merrin gone that Cleary would take Matulino to Penrith.

Doubt it. They want to upgrade James fisher Harris and that young half. They don't need anyone.

Jordan Kahu is still uncertain about where he will be next season he was thought to be be going to the Titans until they signed Brian Kelly .. Kahu can play fullback, wing or centre and is really handy goal kicker .. ?? He is currently thinking about going to union if he can't find an NRL team. Would he worth a shot .. ??

No from me. He's solid enough but there is no strike power about him. Not big, not fast, not any ball playing element to his game. If he were an elite goal kicker he might be worthwhile but he's just a decent one, nothing flash there either.

Kahu is good player but missed a lot of footy in the last few years with some pretty big injuries.

Kahu was meant to be a Tiger a few years back , coming thru the Keebra Park feeder system we had in place but dogged us for the Broncs when it came crunch time

He signed with us, but we let him out of the contract because he didn't want to leave his family, I say pass

Kahu would be as great a signing as Matt Ballin.
On paper, good stuff - but reality - he's busted and will barely take the field.

No thanks.

Walker is good, fast, great attacker.
Appears short to me.

Take the dud Kafusi brother from the storm too.

Mate we've had that many whispers about players coming here over the past few months and none (literally none) of them have come true. Won't be holding my breath for Walker either.
