TOMMY TALAU GOES KAPOW

THE son of former Canterbury centre Willie Talau will leave Canterbury at season’s end and join the Wests Tigers. Highly rated half Tommy Talau was picked in the Australian Schoolboys side last month.

Haven't we just signed a young Aust School Boy half back from Newcastle Jock (something) ?? Why are we picking up halfbacks ??

Who do you expect to come out and say psoitive things about him and on what platform? None of the Panthers players are going to be out in the media saying anything rising above neutral because they're not going to want to bring Gould's ire down on themselves. Gould is a powerful figure in the media and Channel 9 are hardly going to go out of their way to trash him. Fox probably don't want to be seen to be pushing an agenda against him either. Gould on the other hand can easily rustle up a few rubes like Hannant who have nothing to fear from trash talking Griffin - a bit of payback on him for not favouring them and a few bucks or some favour with Gould probably.

Broncos players had positive things to say about him back when they were playing under him and he managed to secure extensions at both the Broncos and the Panthers prior to being sacked by both clubs, so he can't have been doing everything wrong...again, I don't think he seems like any great coach but their is a massive power imbalance in how the two sides get to present their cases and it's unfair. You'll find no truth in how this plays out in the media now.
Well said Nelson!
How many players followed him to the Panthers?
How many players that aren't named Darius followed Wayne Bennett to the Dragons?
If Griffin was so good surely even one would have gone over given how much time it is since The Broncs chopped him, but still no present or past players of his, think enough of him to give him a genuine wrap,
,
Anyway, Darius wanted to play for his dad,,,,,ooops isn’t this getting familiar, good thing is maybe Peachey might think twice about leaving now ,

Yeah and Sharks tipped to get him.

I thought we were interested in him earlier this year but weren't allowed to by the NRL, but now Sharks can? Someone please confirm or deny that please because if that's how it is then there needs to be an investigation!

Fox sports retorting that Chris McQueen wants to go to the Cowboys on a subsidised deal, I have no objections to letting him go, as long as we don't pay too much.
If Chris Mac wants to go there, he can take whatever they are offering him and forego the difference here. If he's desperate to get away from Sydney he'll take whatever they offer.
Just because it's soap doesn't mean it's clean.

It’s done I posted it two months ago. Sharks will keep Holmes also. Under very good authority.

His ESL club wasn't prepared to release him earlier in the year, I don't think the NRL were involved in blocking anything.

Barba to Sharks and Holmes to Cowboys seems like it's been brewing for a while.

It would be a stroke of good luck if we can move him on elsewhere.

Easily ...there are 6 openings at the Weststigers for players interested in playing in the NRL there’s the carrot right there.Lets not underestimate the lure of playing in the big show to getting bashed in the reggies ever week being positive is the key here .

We might need Robbie as a coach...
Onya Robbie! You’v made the world of difference since returning - all class .. charge downs, 5th tackle options, repeat sets etc etc, you’ve got it all.
Rotation with Liddle next year.
He certainly has been good since his return.

That just means your buying a similar caliber of player to the ones leaving. We need upgrades, not to be disrespectful to our current squad but there are some players in our 1st grade team that should be playing ISP more often than they do 1st grade.

We've also signed Logen Dillon from the Bulldogs SG Ball team. He is a fullback who according to repots is very fast and a hard runner. I think he may also be the leading try scorer in SG Ball this year and was chased by a number of big clubs.
