Whilst im not a huge fan of the GRUB i think under Cleary's mentoring he might come out a better player
Plus a change of scenery from the dogs will help

If he cost $200Kk less than Widdop then why not..
Gives us more money to use elsewhere


Anyone else get the Feeling Ivan likes and rates the Kiwi boys .

I'd much prefer Widdop. Cleary needs to factor in with Moses gone we are without a goal kicker next year which is where Widdop should take sway over Reynolds. I know Reynolds is on the nose with a lot of people, but you can't coach the heart and tenacity he has. Something sorely lacking in our playing ranks.

As far as fullbacks go, I would be distraught landing Dugan or Hoppa. Would much rather approach the Warriors and seeing if they would grant Lolohea a release OR sign Gagai and play him at fullback.

Lolohea kicks goals there was talk he was going to the Broncos next year to play 5/8 and I don't think he has a contact for next year
He does but his future at the Warriors looks pretty bleak. So it might not take much to secure his release. He'd be the best option imo.


They also have the wiz kid Ata Hingano maybe pinch him play him at 5/8

If Tedesco goes We MUST TARGET DANE GAGAI I think he might even be better then tedesco and I love tedesco but even Latrell Mitchell is probly better Just saying there are players out there maybe even someone from the UK or Rugby Union options even

Darius Boyd & Billy Slater are both off contract next year and are better fullbacks than Tedesco - if we have so much cash to spend why aren't we targeting them instead of chasing also rans?
If you were Boyd or Slater would you leave your clubs with a great playing roster and arguably the best 2 coaches in the game to come play for the Tigers. They are both Test fullbacks and it isn't like the Tigers is close to Brisbane or Melbourne. Both are coming towards the end of their careers and one injury could mean that their careers are over (especially Slater given his run of injuries in the past few years).
I will support Wests Tigers through thick or thin
I will be cheering when they win
I will love the Tigers Till I Die
With loyal supporters we will fly
I love the Tigers with my heart and soul
I just love the club as a whole

Idk, I'd rather an old head like Widdop in the halves. Seems like ages since we've had one.

Poor outcome above. Let's hope not.

Don't want duges, hops or Reynolds they aren't going to get us anywhere.

To have Tedesco, Johnson and a good forward pack then Woods definitely needs to leave.
I am with you and would love to have Johnson and think that he would really suit this team. It is a big ask to make him come across the ditch but he can bring Matulino with him and he will have a former coach in Ivan Cleary.
It all depends on how much a couple of backrowers and a decent centre/winger will cost us.
Agreed, I would let woods go in a heart beat to get Shaun with us, I think forwards are easier to come by than players like Shaun.
Letting Forwards go to get Show Ponies... No Thanks!

NO, Letting an overpaid forward with no desire to be at the club go so we can buy a qualtity NRL player who has established themselves as a proven NRL performer and who is value for money

Well, its not really up to me but one thing is for certain, the Queensland Selectors on the panel are not going to let a bloke from NSW to replace a Queenslander in such an important role.

I understand your a kid, so I'll leave it there
