Moses spat the dummy when his contract was taken away and repeatedly asked to leave even though we still wanted to keep him at the time.

Mbye has been shopped around and the Bulldogs want him to leave, otherwise they wouldn't release him in the first place.
Agree, there is a big difference between Mitchell and Mbye.

I wouldn't put much stock into what Lol Gorman has to say about Kelly. That one could certainly still go either way. Look at teh Dogs saying they won't spend a cent on M'Bye, only to be coughing up 250-300k for him over the next couple of years..

Yes to Garner and Robson getting bus passes from ISP to NRL for this year or next. Robson the perfect utility. Does a great job covering hooker, back row, centre, 5/8.

Do need a couple of pacy backs though.

No way Tatola was ever as good as Felise coming through the ranks. JJ was and is a superior player, even though junior is a bit bigger, he doesn't have the engine to play mins. Eiso got the nod ahead of JJ and has kept his spot, both similar but JJ packs a bit more punch. Eiso better defensively.

IT IS OFFICIAL

Wests Tigers sign Moses Mbye
Author Wests Tigers Timestamp Tue 29 May 2018, 04:59 PM

Wests Tigers are pleased to announce the signing of Moses Mbye for the coming four seasons.

The new agreement will see Mbye join Wests Tigers next season and be a part of the club until at least the end of 2022.

The 24-year-old has played 92 NRL games since making his debut in 2014.

Wests Tigers Head Coach Ivan Cleary said he looked forward to working with Mbye.

"Moses is a talented young man and we look forward to having him join Wests Tigers next season," said Cleary. "He's developed into an exciting player and I know he'll bring a lot to our club, both on and off the field."

Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe welcomed Mbye to the club.

"Moses is an exciting addition to our playing squad and I look forward to having him at Wests Tigers for the coming four seasons," said Pascoe. "He's an impressive young man and I'm sure he'll quickly become a favourite with our Members and fans."

Good signing but don't like the 4th year. He's still largely an unknown talent at fullback and we can't afford to have money tied up on unproven players. Looks like we caved in to managers demands there.

Disappointing not to get him for this year too. Still 3 signings to go

Yeah I agree. 3 years max for any player. They might get too comfortable and slacken off after awhile. Though I see a lot if upside in him. He can run, kick and pass. Just needs a good coach to go to the next level.

Happy to have it done i think he'll be a solid recruit but like others have said i would have passed on the 4th year, although it could be a masterstroke time will tell.

If he's playing well enough, he'll play fullback. Best player will get selected.

Thanks for your input. It is always interesting reading your posts.

I suggested we should be looking at Braden Burns from Souths. Like Staggs and Ferguson, he is a Wellington junior with height and excellent pace. Under IC's tutelage, I believe he could become a good centre/wing option.
