Re: Zane Musgrove

You all realize that Zane Musgrave is Michael Maguire's step son I question the reasons he is coming on board then - because he is a good player fitting our squad or to keep family employed.... Maguire has talked up a big game re what he wants for this club and where he thinks we should be. Given t...

Re: Wests Tigers head to Western Sydney Stadium

Can I ask how long you have been a member for? 11th season in 2019. It's my 20th in 2019 and we got 2.30pm. I shouldn't be surprised though as they stuff up my season tickets most years. Into our 9th year of WT membership....had ANZ membership was seated adjacent to players tunnel in other words gr...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Agree. Probably worth 750k to 800k. No more at this stage. In your 80 years or so of supporting Balmain/ Wests/Wests Tigers have we ever had a great, and I emphasise great 1/2 back? Tommy R and G Freeman were good...... tough as nails, but Brooks has the ability to top them both by a long stretch. ...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Imo he is only worth about 700k. He has no Origin experience. He has no finals experience. Basically he hasnt performed under pressure at the top level. Until he does he doesnt warrant that kind of money and id be happy for the club to draw a line around that mark and let him go if he wants more. A...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I remember Luke on the news 3 months ago saying he wanted to extend his contract with us. Ivan said he explained to Luke why he could not sign him yet, (So he could pump up Nathan's & his own contract) Now Luke is worth a lot more. Nice one Ivan he still screw's us even after he is gone. Yeah that’...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Not sure if there is a topic elsewhere, if there is i apologise. Has anyone thought about how much his stock will go up if Ivan goes? It would mean no Cleary Jnr and Brooks holding all the cards as our chief playmaker. IF Isaac Moses is still his manager then this could get very ugly in the next few...

I wonder if Robbie is having second thoughts now with Cleary gone? I'm sure there were some mutterings about him only signing on for next year if Cleary was coach ?

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

Happy to be proven wrong but i'm sure when Go was interviewed on League Life she said when Ivan was interviewed for the job it was NEVER part of the package for him to bring Nathan. She also stated that Ivan had complete control of the salary cap and that if he wanted to sign Nathan up that was ent...

What is there to destroy? We are rock bottom already. Lost our best juniors, a coach sacked and one who jumped in quick succession & haven’t played finals for yonks.

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

Disappointed about Bennett, but that was really only ever going to be a short term arrangement if it had come to fruition. Madge hopefully coaches us for a decade. Good pick up. Credit to Pascoe. This is a very disappointing outcome. I have to say I expected more from our Board. Really? What did yo...

As frustrating as it is to have it drawing it out so long, i can't blame Pascoe for taking his time with this. His job is probably on the line. Agree. If it means we come away with Madge or Bennett, I'll be happy. We'd all be furious if the club shot its load and ran out and signed another sub par ...

They can’t just roll over to release him. Think how weak that will look to the rest of the competition. We already look weak enough under regular circumstances. If Penrith want him, pay up. I don’t think Penrith want him at all. They got rid of him not that long ago. It was all for leverage and sho...
