Ethan Lowe insights for 2019.
Has been bog average this year. Why do we sign players that are past their peak & not wanted by his current club.
Correct he has gone off the boil big time this year, now starting from the bench.
Whether he has the sookie la la’s because Hess is getting a start in front of him, but he is nowhere the player he was last year.
Cut him some slack , he has had either 2-3 HIA's this season from memory
I’ve always liked him as a player good goal kicker too but this year he isn’t the player he was last year.
Even off the bench.

I’d take Lowe for his goal kicking alone! In all seriousness though, I would genuinely like that signing.

Kelly I’m not fussed with... whether we get him or not I wouldn’t care either way.

I’m not that keen on Mbye, though would accept him if we can get him at a good discount.
Yes that's pretty much my summation too, except like others here I think Lowe isn't as impressive as he has been. I have been a big fan of his in the past.

Ethan Lowe is one of those names that seems to come up every year, It seems like we’ve been chasing him for 5 years.

Great. Good on him. If interchanges come down he’s a good option for us

Lowe would be handy as a good back up , most of the Cowboys are playing well under what you would expect , a change of clubs and coach could be good for him , when he is going well he is value , plus his goal kicking would be a bonus if needed , I would have him on a deal that is good for us

last night on fox they said JAYDAN SUA was been chased by the bunnies, he is just what we need in the back row, but for some reason we never seem to get these players, either we dont have the correct people talking to these players, because we do have the funds.

Isaako or Ethan Lowe would be nothing less than fantastic signings (we need a reliable kicker!!) but I doubt those guys will leave their teams.

Can someone please shed light on the Mbye rumours? Guy is class. A marquee IMO and he's only getting better. His skill and versatility would be an amazing asset to any team.

Charles Dickens had , as they say, great expectations.

But not really as much as the fiercely loyal Wests Tigers fans who populate this forum, in all matters about recruitment.

Love it!!

Isaako probably won't leave the Broncos because they've got him earmarked for Boyd's fullback position. Lowe on the other hand has been demoted to the bench and is only getting about 40 minutes game time a week under Green - he could probably be persuaded to leave for more game time and more respect.

Souths are big spenders and they are going after him with the funds they had pegged for Crichton. It would cost us a bomb to get him.

DT reported we offered a 3 year deal Moses Mbye and will have to take a pay cut to come over as Dogs won’t pay for him to play at WT.
Dogs have the bye next week so if it’s happening this year it will be next week. Just a hunch.

Mbye should ride this out until the Bulldogs pay the difference between what the Tigers are offering and what he was going to get paid. They're in a mess and obviously need to free up funds hence allowing him to negotiate with other clubs in the first place. Put the pressure back on them...

agreed nelson, but its about time we signed some players at the top of there game rather than players on the way down, we need a elite signing.

Mybe will be offered 3 years by us matching the 2 years he has left at the Dogs. ...it will be paid over 3,5 years some out of this years cap to lessen the hit over the 3 years similar to what the rorters did with Maloney a few years ago should the Dogs and Mbye agree...
