Treated the Club? He was bullied into Reserve Grade to force him out cause the Club didn't want to honour his Contract.
There's 15 other Clubs if you are that down about it hop along.
hop along where? geez, getting personal now are we? I am not down. Who told you I was? oh my, some people really? I was just expressing the concern I have for the club. The club has made the decision and I am ok with that... they know better than I do. So we will leave it at that. Good luck coach!!!

PS. they were honouring his contract - only that he was playing in Reserve Grade - there was no promise that he will play in FG all the time or did I miss something? was there a promise in the contract that he will be in FG all the time?

oh boy, some people... welcome RF and good luck coach!!!
Um he played Origin that year when they put him in Reserve Grade says more about the Coach he had at the time and where is he now? Back pedalled to the place where they would feel sorry for him and give him employment :lol:

He's here for half year you'll be right
Exactly FT, it was all about JT and his ego, he had the current origin hooker in reserve grade and Rankin at hooker in 1st grade, the board should have sacked the fool right then for such a stupid team selection, club first my backside JT, so glad you are no longer our problem.

With the advantage of hindsight i totally agree. I gave him some benefit of doubt at the time, but it just doesnt stand up to history.

Add the board now bringing Farah back and its pretty clear Jason Taylor is mud around this club
Its an opinion!

Could just be the club completely lacks any leadership or football knowledge at the exec level.

Very happy to have Robbie back on board .. can't wait to see Leichhardt Oval on the 1 Jul 18, I can see the signs now .."the prodical one returns" .. "Welcome back Robbie" etc, etc and of course the debut of Moses Mbye in Tigers colours for the first time .. !! Does anyone know how much in $$ we have paid for Robbie at this stage.
Gonna be a good old fashion partay at Leichhardt that afternoon .. :sign:

Now unto a more serious issue .. who do we package off at season end ??

Robbie and Benji - both contracted to end of the 2018 season
Tim Grant - time to move on
MM aka Killa - will we be moving him on
Godinet - gone
McQueen - gone
Robbie Rochow - has he done enough to stay
Kev Naiqama - is going seasons end to the ESL
Tui Lolohea - do we keep him or will he stay

So dare I say it we should have a nice little kitty to play with for next season.

I am. 18 months ago the club was dragged through the mud in the media with the brand tarnished, mud slinging between players, their contacts, coaching staff and the board. It eventually passed and parties went their own ways and moved on, but now I am left asking what was that for? Why did the club bother moving on a life member and creating that upheval unless there was a problem there and how can he come back to a club with the same leadership that he so publicly slagged off.

It is like watching a destructive relationship where the police have turned up, AVO's have been issued and a week later they are back together until the next time it happens.

A lot depends on who was acting on whose behalf. The suggestion at the time was JT was acting on behalf of the club leadership in forcing Robbie out, partly to resolve salary cap issues and partly to manage other egos.

He was given the chance against the Raiders...we were on the front foot and doing ok untill Killa got injured...he gets 10 out of 10 for that effort..
You may see me struggle...but you will never see me quit... :D

Id forget all "suggestions" as its just rumour and speculation and focus instead on facts.

Facts are this board are doing what any board should do and are supporting the coach. They did it with Taylor and are now doing it with Cleary.

Personal opinion doesnt come into, its just about the board doing the right thing and giving support to the guy they hired to run the football side of things.
Its an opinion!

Hope he plays well for us in his stint here. I'm terrified to think of all the negative comments coming from the anti-Farah movement in the weeks to come if he plays poorly

I thought he set both tries up but NRL.com have him as 1 try assist

The only error Killa had made was he couldnt stop Papali . Wasnt entirely his fault as RR sold him short

How are we meant to move all those players on? McIlwrick, McQueen, Rochow, and Lolohea all have contracts beyond this year and we’d need someone to take them. If that happened we’d have to pay part of the money anyway. On top of that that’s 4 more players we’d have to find for next year. Are we going to change half the squad each season?

Such a bad decision by the board, No one is buying tickets for the Leichhardt game

Except every man and his dog is. It will be a sell out!

WT only cut their nose to spite their face that effects flow down to fans, sponsorship, premiership points, TV ratings. When even the lowest knowledgeable fan in league can see the obvious it just proves the saying that there is none so blind that those who do not want to see.
