Cleary is smart enough not to walk. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ When I thought he had some integrity I would have said Cleary wouldn't do that but we know that bird has flown.

Re: POLL - Maguire 2019/Bennett 2020

I don’t know what the ‘real’ situation is BUT of the choice out of the two options available I went with Bennett. I would like to see what he could actually do to our team. I have said many times that I think the supercoach is a myth ... based on the playing roster he has had at the Broncos. Even th...

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

Just to murky the waters, Brent Read just commented that Wayne Bennett’s people were in talks with Wests Tigers. They have outlined Bennett’s terms. Brent Read says that timing is the big issue and that Bennett may want to come in 2020 so he thinks Cleary will be with us in 2019. Make of it what you...

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

I still cannot understand the hysteria on here because Ivan is leaving when his contract is finished in 2 years time.. That is all that we have to go on at the moment,nothing more nothing less,the rest is speculation and emotions running high.. So what if Ivan coaches the Panthers in 2021,as long a...

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

Geez, some of you think that Ivan is going to a weaker club and will struggle? He’s not going to Penrith in 2 years time or earlier just to coach his son. He’s going to coach a powerhouse club. He wants a premiership just as much as his son and he knows he has a better chance at Penrith. I'm really...

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

I wish someone would just muzzle Elias permenatly. He is an embarrassment to himself, friends, and the Wests Tigers community. Never has anything constructive to say and he is so old hat he should have stayed in the last century. A dope who talks a lot. I don’t think he says anything less silly tha...

Re: New coach.. Who should we target?

I'm afraid for Wayne Bennett.
He turns 69 in January ... coaching the Tigers could be the death of him.

Re: Nathan Cleary

Pawsandclaws wants action taken in regards to us losing players and coaches to stronger clubs. It sounds like hes suggesting there is inaction by the NRL that is hurting us. I did write that the WTs are of significant benefit to the NRL and its bottom line. We are improving both on and off the fiel...

Well if you have had two usernames it’s likely you may have had three or four.

I have seen so many new names on this forum when a touchie topic pops up I am convinced that people open multiple accounts to push agendas.

He is definitely waiting for 1 November.

Wouldn’t surprise me if he ends up with Tedesco.

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

I must be the only one who doesn’t care about what the Cleary’s do. Ivan has confirmed he’ll see out his contract - that’s good enough for me. The suggestion that it is wreaking havoc on our recruitment is laughable. Some suggest we lost CHN because of it but we got Ryan Matterson who some say is a ...

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

All I will say is that a Central Queensland team will NOT work. I live in Rockhampton where the CQ Capras are based and Rocky is a little country town compared to Townsville.

My question is, how do you get a 20 team competition to work fairly? The current 16 team draw is ridiculous.

Re: REPORTS: Manly prop considering exit

A short history lesson. Easts had a couple of seasons in the 1960s (???) where they just bought players so that other teams could not get them. Then they would just play them in reserve grade. I ***think ** d*** Thornett (League and Union international) was one of them, who they bought from Parrama...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Whether or not you hold that his intentions were honourable, it was meeting with Penrith on the sly that was so un-cool. Come on! If he cared about the club, the fans and his legacy here, surely he would have tried desperately to endear himself back to the fans - especially in the aftermath of the ...
