It was simple...Marshall, Farah, Gibbs, Fulton, Halatau etc were paid overs on the back of 2005 and seen as the future leaving a very low offer for Brett to say..it worked out OK for him though as he went to the ESL and carved it up winning Man of Steel awards...

Hodgo coming back home is the best news - he is a legend!

You say that in jest, but it that is actually probably close to the truth. Moltzen was rated as highly as Brooks and Moses and was supposed to be the next best thing. He started 2009, the first season without Hodgo, at fullback.

I am definitely not in the know. I'm just your average member. But I hear often that our club lacks 'soul' and 'culture' and history. Bringing people in from our championship era to talk about what makes Wests Tigers great, what it took to win a GF and how proud players felt to wear the Tigers jersey and parade as champions MUST be good for developing our culture and future success. I think bringing Hodgo back is a brilliant move!

I thought Brett started in third grade/Under 23's, as a half-back. I remember one of his early games at Campbelltown, if not his debut, Wests Magpies won a scrum about 30 metres out on our left hand side. He ran around the scrum base to the blind side and cut through to score without having a hand placed on him. He was lightening fast in those days.
Great to see this champion back in the fold.

Blake Lazarus was earmarked to take Hodgson spot...in 2008..

i started a crazy thread saying we need an expert coach for the wing.... ( viewtopic.php?f=2&t=29740 _

Guys don't listen to me! I'm a punter and a crazy fan. I don't know what I am talking about. I may think that Liam Fulton or Gareth Ellis were the best forwards around in 2008. Payten sounds like a great idea for a head coach, just give him the ball and get him to run out when were a man down. Benji Marshall warps the speed of light a little... I see things through tiger eyes. Don't listen to me or take these ideas seriously, please....

Oh, you hired Hodgson for the role... Good Job Carry on.

Is this just a rumour and something the Mole "heard" on the grapevine or definitely going to happen?

This is quite possibly Ivan Cleary's most amazing signing! To have one of the greatest Weststigers players as part of our club again with all his knowledge, experience and credibility is sheer class from IC! Well done!
