While time will tell regarding recruitment, credit where credit is due: Ivan has been successful at getting players to leave our club.

Does anyone really want our club paying 300-350k for him to play somewhere else? I thought we weren’t going to do that anymore.

He’s supposedly on 400k so I doubt we’d be paying any more than 50-100k for him if we let him go.

Not ideal but gives us some more room in the salary cap.

We don't have to pay anything if McQueen asks for a release..
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..

Wow, if true, IC has his finger on the pulse like no coach ever before at the WT.

Doubt it personally is true though, McQueen signed for another two years at WT I believe (or was it three) and I don't think Titans would take him back for another 2 years considering his injuries/form have kept him to Reserve Grade all year.
A one eyed supporter, mostly :crazy, always :sign:

We don’t know his personal situation. Thought he wanted to move back to Sydney.
Maybe he has family back in the GC?
What was his junior club in QLD?

Hearing player swap for Leilani Latu who Cleary signed for Penrith in 2014 currently playing Q Cup and can’t get into the pack rotation at the Titans.

If he can get back to his Penrith days it can be a decent signing.
I have family in Balmain and the Western suburbs so i guess that makes me a Balmain Westie

Re signed with Penrith till 2020 in 2017.
Moved to Gold Coast for a deal of the same term.
Chances are even moving to another club (us) panthers will still be partly paying for him for another 2 years.

Listen up, it's not brain surgery.

If a player requests a release from his contract, a club can refuse his request and continue to pay said player.

If the club grants his request the players contract is null and void ie there is no longer a contract.

Therefore as there is no contract between the club and the player there is no obligation to pay said player any money.

Get it?

There is risk. It doesn’t sound like his able to do enough to get back into the squad.
The question is with both players yet to again play to their potential.
What does the squad need more for next year?
A worker backrower, impact not their strongest suit, defends and can run lines well
Or
A very skilful ball playing prop whom probably isn’t the fittest or toughest going around.
We are not getting a line busting impact player from either.
