For what it's worth, The Lurker in his Monday column has linked Ben Barba to the Tigers.

Given The Lurker's strike rate, you could most likely put a line through Barba coming to the club
The lurker has been lurking this very forum I'd say
If you read the article it's blatantly obvious that he lifted that rumour straight off this forum.

If Smoking Gun is right
Will all those giving him a hard time stand up be a man and apologize
I bet not
This is a Rumours thread
The whole idea is if you believe you have heard something worth while posting then post it

I once heard a rumour the Cherry Evans had signed with the titans but it didn't happen
My point is players can change their mind very easily
I wouldn't name a player who might be thinking about signing with us
Other club's may just try and sneak in under our nose to get him
I like your posts Smoking Gun
I hope your right and we do land a big signing

Fairly sure DCE did sign with the Titans. But he backflip while the contract was in the cooling off period. Happy to be corrected if wrong.
We will smash em 50+ get on.

Agree however, Willow insinuated it was false and name dropped Pascoe. Case closed.
If it is true sets a bad precedent if people are a good source on a forum which is basically riddled with rumour to be shot down.
I am surprised a club would care the slightest about a fan forum tbh.

By the way
We all support the same team
We are all on the same side
And all want the tigers to do well
When we do I am sure there will be a lot more positive talk going on

The Wests Tigers have no one that kick goals. This may prove to be a major issue in 2018

No, that's not exactly what happened Tyga.
POM stated the rumour was not true and then POM and SG started a "mines bigger/ mines better". The thread was going nowhere so Willow pulled the plug.

I believe Willow stated that Pascoe knew of the rumour and had no problem with it being shot down.

Maybe Willow can clarify.

Been reading this forum for over 12 months and in my opinion Smoking Gun The Pom and Yossarian all provide great information and insight to the main reason why the majority of us read player signings and rumours !
Occasionally the information may not match the outcome but they all have a terrific strike rate
Cheers guys !

The club should care what is said on here
We are it's supporters
Without it's supporters it won't exist
I would be surprised if someone in the Wests Tigers media department wasn't looking at this forum and gauging how we perceive their current performance
Its a good way of the club looking at what it's supporters are saying and what we want
That's why I think it's important to give support on this forum
A lot of changes have been made in the off-season with players
We have a whole new coaching staff with a full pre season of training and preparation
Let's hope all this equals better on field performances

Lolohea, Milne and Thompson all kick goals.

Do not go where the path may lead go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

and.... Marshall! (though his goal kicking boots may be a little rusty).

Still can't get over Jason Taylor not training up a GOAL KICKER! You were one of the best goal kickers in your time and as head coach you just don't teach anyone! :brick:

Hopefully IC and BH can/have trained a few up over preseason. Can never hurt having more than one option.
No more plodders!
