Now the Tigers need to extend Brooks before 1 November.

“To sign a deal of this significance with a player we have seen develop through our own pathways system, from a young age, is a special moment indeed.”

Agree 100% with that. Good to see

Nathan said there were no other offers on the table to consider HELLO nobody else could talk to him before Nov 1.Time for big decision to be made at WTs let's hope they have the Kahoonas to make them.

Glad he has signed and we can stop talking about him coming or not. Let’s lock up Brooks and get a few more players.
True, and we do need to move on Brooks, but whilst ever Ivan stays silent the media will not leave it alone.

Good. We should have no worries keeping Brooks now.

I hope they make the decision, and make it quickly, but I suspect the decision is already made

Are we guaranteed to get him? Cupboard starts to look at bit bare if Brooksy moves on.

The kid is decent, but pretty happy with how Brooks has gone this year and behind a pack that wasn't going as well as the Panthers.

Surely we'll be talking extension for Brooks now?
Of course, lets hope the eye hasnt gone off the ball in this regard.

Said before we don’t need a no 7, Brooks is not far behind Cleary. The amount of money Cleary would have cost us we could probably attract at least two quality players at positions crying out for some urgent repair.

Also I will never knock a player for being loyal, it’s a great quality to take through life...Tedesco take note

No surprise there. Good on him, nice to see loyalty, admittedly with a nice pay cheque in return. I now hope the situation with dad gets resolved very quickly so WT can get on with things.

I see this as more of a psychological blow to the Tigers, than any actual loss.

We haven't signed an up and coming star in a long time, so it would have been nice to have bragging rights over his signature. But that's about it.

I have no doubt that Nathan will have a successful career, but he is no Andrew Johns or JT in the making from what we have seen so far.

Hopefully we can get this crap storm that his father has centered around him sorted shortly, and concentrate on signing some decent players in key positions. That will do us more benefit in the long term than Nathan Cleary wearing our colours and leaving the second his dad gets the punt.

Is this the same Nathan Cleary who already has a dedicated thread...?
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..

Didn’t think we’d even put in a formal offer. No offence to Nathan, but he’s the last thing we need right now. Besides the whole media circus, there is no way he’d actually be of any benefit to the team. Brooks needs an experienced halves partner and you wouldn’t move him to five eighth just for Cleary either, especially not at this stage of his career.
A couple of his answers stood out to me and I was happy to see someone say sorry to us fans, even if it was only due from a leading question.

MC: So what happens now? Is he here at this club next year?
NC: Not that I know of. Obviously my intentions have been that I wanted him to coach me but it's never been a package deal or anything. I said this is my decision and what happens from here is his decision. It would obviously be nice. I would love that. But in the meantime I also loved being coached by Ciro.
MC: How big of a factor was a crack at a premiership in the very near future? No disrespect to the Tigers but Penrith seem closer to that window than the Tigers at the moment.
NC: I think the Tigers probably aren't too far either to be honest. But yeah it is a massive factor the whole premiership thing. It's more so that I want to bring one to Penrith.
MC: What do you say to the Tigers fans? Sorry?
NC: I don't know. Sorry. Good luck. I don't know. It was all kind of speculation that got taken out of proportion. I'm sorry it's turned out this way.

Loved that marina mentioned how important brooks and Josh were to the Tigers when the Ivan situation was going on.

Hopefully that message is filtered down to them regularly.

Finally.. hopefully the NC talk is over. He was never coming to us (even says so himself) and I am sure Ivan knew it and Pascoe too. The whole story just cranked his contract up and gave Gus something to worry about.
I agree with others who are saying that we need quality forwards more than him. Momo and Matterson are a good start but now we desperately need to bring on a couple of impact forwards.
