Re: Luke Brooks

I find that last paragraph very moving. Such loyalty ! It's interesting to speculate about what motivates players. When you consider Robbie, Benji, Rowdy and now Brooks (and others) - they love the club and want to achieve success for the club and with their mates. Woods and Tedesco on the other han...

Re: First profit for the club

Not sure I understand your point Kiwitiger. Pascoe was quoted saying: "We had about $2 million worth of commercial growth, but more than $1 million was invested back into the club." Pascoe is saying that they reinvested $1m, not that they are sitting on it. It would be interesting to know how they r...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

:deadhorse: Cooper Cronk shuts down retirement talk and won’t rule out playing on for the Roosters in 2020 Roosters would be stupid to sign him for another year. I honestly thought he was ordinary last year. Keary and latrells side is where the points come from. I hope they do sign him. Honest to g...

Re: Luke Brooks

He agreed to terms a long time ago as I mentioned awhile ago, just the final year was a sticking point & Issac Moses made it a bigger issue than it needed to be. He wanted it to be 4 years in total & not an option as the final year. Made his threats & tried to play games with the club but we didn’t...

Re: Where Do You See the Tigers Placing in 2019?

Last season we beat the Storm twice and Easts once and came 9th. If we can't jag three wins against the Storm and Easts next year, we will have to find them against other teams in order to come 9th again. So, (assuming we don't beat Easts or the Storm) to make the 8 next year we will have to win fo...

When will Brooks Be announced???
Should be soon. 100% confirmed for 4 years
Yoss, does the 4 years begin from 2020, or from next year (given he is already contracted for 2019)?

Re: Who Was the Best Player in Their Prime?

I voted for Slater simply because he is the best full back I have seen.

Johns was great but I'm not sure he is even the best half back over the last few decades, let alone the best ever player.

Re: Who is the Fastest Player in the NRL?

JAC. No contest. There wouldn’t be many players over the last 20 years who were quicker. I’d back him to beat any of them. Wonder how JAC would compare with the late Ken Irvine. Irvine ran 100 yards in 9.3 seconds in 1963 which became the world professional sprint record at the time. 100 yards is 9...

Re: Luke Brooks

Wishes and dreams - when you think of the quality players that have slipped through our fingers - it makes me weep. I dream of what might have been: Fafita and Woods in the front row; a mature Simon Dwyer in the backrow and Marty Tapau at lock; TMM at 5/8; Teddy out the back and JAC on the wing. Th...

Re: First profit for the club

I think its a big wrap for the club. You look at clubs like Manly and Cronulla and they seem to be in turmoil. Slowly if we can improve the roster the wheel could turn quickly. We are building some foundations. Just hope Pascoe is here for another 5-10 years. Couldnt agree more. This is my biggest ...

Re: Luke Brooks

TMM stats didn't measure up in 2018. His style could suit Brooks though. He could became a hand brake for Brooks if he doesn't make line brakes/ try assists/ repeat sets and defend well. Brooks running metres is equal or better than TMM as well. TMM could come cheap though. Brooks plays pretty dire...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I must say... Young Joey Manu - at present, is the best centre in the game. Looks SBW like in ability, size, strength, etc. Hard to get a start over him & Latrell - who is also a superstar. I would rate Manu as the better player and wish we could get Lomax from the dragons but unfortunately there i...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

We must be paying overs for some players in our team if we cant afford a player like Walker. I'd love to know how other teams e.g. Panthers, Roosters and Broncos manage their cap. Even Newcastle are starting to build a solid team and I cant help but feel we will be left behind yet again. Who said w...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Something is brewing. Once again i think we are caught in a complicated recruitment issue. Id say it revolves around Brooks as he is the key component. We could have asked Johnson to demand an answer from the Warriors today as they are weighing up the relative value of Brooks on big money or just g...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

We could afford him but it leaves nothing left over. He's on too much money for a centre.. Martterson,mono and Musgrove wouldn't be on heaps.. So how much do you think he is on? Just curious. $600k-$700k from a foxsprots article earlier in the year. Yeah I would've had him pegged at about that, he'...
