Maybe the "what's next for me" attitude rather than a team focus is why he is in state cup. Reynolds was great on 360 about potentially playing for his spot. Different attitude.

My opinion, we can move on from Tim. He seems like a good bloke but 'stop gap' at best now. Happy to have him kicking around the ISP on a lower wage but any more than that - see ya buddy, appreciate your service!

I can honestly see him back at the panthers fairly quickly because of McKendrys(spelling) injury,hopefully get a reasonable back with pace in exchange.

Would be good to get the WZ brothers back together in an exchange!
I think Penrith will come calling. I can’t see McKendry coming back anytime soon from a third ACL injury.

Part of a bigger picture at this stage of his career. good back up and i am afraid he needs to understand this, as far as the tigers are concerned

I like Grant,but i can see him @ the Penny Panthers, If he does i hope we get a good player in return from them.

Thought I'd read that before some time ago
He ponders a lot
:lol:

They call him the ponderer, yeah the pon der er, he roams around and round and round......

Grant will get a decent crack in 1st grade throughout the season when inevitable injuries hit.
I bet he goes from town to town

Grant is a good Prop to have playing ISP... When he is required to come up, he wont let you down.

His comments sound like he wants to keep playing NRL in the future, but is concerned with playing reggies his contract value might be significantly lower [not sure how low it is now] for his next contract.

Its a tough scenario, but one that is in the tigers court to control. I sense we will need to make a decision of letting one go after this year between Grant, Sue or Felise. All 3 can play NRL and will want that opportunity elsewhere if it doesnt come at Concord.

We have all been harping on about how good it is to have quality depth. At present our frontrow is the cornerstone to our recent sucess, sadly injuries are always around the corner, so thats why we need to keep Grant and like all the others running around in reserve grade, keep them motivated and happy
