Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

The club isn't going to make any announcements either way until they have all their ducks in a line If it is Madge perhaps they are waiting until his NZ commitments are sorted If it is Bennett maybe a three way financial deal has to be sorted including Bennett's successor at the Broncos Either way ...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

But why wouldn't Ivan want to build a solid last year? Again, the Panthers are "still in limbo", their current coach has been publicly told he'll be coaching first grade next year, why is it that "they'll be alright" yet we won't be? The Bronco's, no coach after next year and now this could happen ...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

So, the Panthers have stated that Ciraldo is the coach for next year, but will be replaced, the Bronco's have stated the same for Bennett.......everyone appears to be ok with that, but if Cleary is only here for next year as well, somehow that's a problem and we'll go backwards? Think it'll all wor...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

Apparently Maguire knocked back the Manly job.......it could suggest he's either coming here or going to the Bronco's and Bennett will be coming here.

Disappointed with IC to say the least, can't see it working out at the Panthers......he, his son and the board there will be under a lot of pressure.

Re: Luke Brooks

Well done Brooks, very good year and with a pack that certainly wasn't firing on all cylinders in every game as well. Hope the club is talking about a contract extension.

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Some of the comments on this thread, comparing the whole situation to stuff we've had to deal with in the past? I don't know, I think the whole thing is being blown well and truly out of proportion. There's no way IC should be offered an extension, it hasn't really been earned at this point. Yes we ...

Re: Nathan Cleary

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?

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Certain Tigers officials believe two years is ample time to come up with a succession plan given there are several NRL clubs with coaches coming off contract at the end of 2019. Of course there's plenty of time, can't see a huge problem with that. Ivan has no extension currently and there's no guar...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Not sure why there would be a need to release him early, it's not like a coach can "tank it" in games nor would they want to leave with a bad win/loss record. If he goes in 2021, he goes, it gives us a couple of years to find a good fit and there's a few out there who would be looking for a coaching...

Re: Your Opinion on were Two New Teams Should Be Based In the NRL

I quite liked the idea someone had of splitting the comp into two conferences. You play your own conference twice and the other one once and do something like giving the top three in each conference finals berths plus two wild cards - could be one each, could be two from the same conference if they...

Re: Johns: $12m salary cap in a bid to reduce NRL to 12-teams

So, even if magically they reduced Sydney teams down to 2, that's 9 teams still with 3 spots to fill...........not a huge amount of room for expansion. A 2nd Brissie side, Central Queensland, Central Coast NSW, Adelaide, Perth, PNG a 2nd Kiwi side have all been talked about at various stages, that's...
