No.
Been average for some years now imo
Absolutely not. He has been abysmal. In defence and attack. I heard a stat once that off the last 8 touches he had over a couple of games he made 6 mistakes. He misses over 5 tackles a game. Should be dropped from cowboys side months ago.
Wouldn't surprise me.
God no.
Can honestly say he’d be worse than MWZ.

Would be very surprising if both Benji and Robbie didn't retire at the end of this year. They're both short term fill ins. Benji's form hasn't been great for a while now.

Liddle just needed a bit of time at a lower intensity to get into the rhythm of playing 80 mins and gradually get his body right. It wasn't doing him any favors to be yoyoing up and down between the grades, getting treatment, taking a week off. If he can get through the next 3-4 games in ISP then he might so straight up to NRL for the end of the season. Robbie is a short term half season loan to provide stronger cover than Godinet and ET.

Let's pray we can sign a centre over the next week. Almost guaranteed a starting spot and there must be players busting to play NRL. Esan and Kev are the only centres in our top 30.

Room for one more if the opportunity arises. If not i'd just promote Garner/Robson so they can get a head start for next season. There's literally no point in using the spot on Curtis other than saving maybe 15-20k.

I wish that somebody who really knows could clarify whether the team has any spots available before June 30

We have 29 photos of the players on our roster on our Team page, and from what everyone is saying we are still payng for Curtis Sironen which puts him on our books ?? If so, we then have a 30 man roster.

It's a option to put him in the books. So if we don't find anyone interesting then yes he will go towards our salary.

I find it hard to believe he'd be worse than MWZ. That is a massive call.

When Robbie signed Ivan or Pascoe said the bus was full for 2018 which would mean the only way anyone else could be signed was by releasing or swapping a player.

June 30th is very close now - I think we need to start looking at 2019 signings

Junior Tatolo anyone? Wasn’t that a bit of a stuff up not to offer him a first grade contract.

I'll be glad once its July 1. Exhausting wading through pages and pages of how many spots remain in the top 30. Safe to say we are done with mid season signings. Time to focus on 2019.

Keep up..

Farah's signing along with that of Moses Mbye now fulfils Wests Tigers roster requirements for 2018.

Not because of form, it's because there's noone else. You'd have to search far and wide to find a winger in the NRL that's worse than MWZ.

All JP has said is that we've fullfilled our requirements, not that we won't sign anyone else.

If someone has a direct quote from Pascoe saying "WT will not be signing any more players to play in 2018" then by all means share. The note from the email does not exclude the possibility of signing players and appears to moreso be Dan paraphrasing.

We may in all likelihood not be able to find anyone else to sign, but if we do, it's possible to do so without releasing anyone.
