Re: Maguire: "Wests Tigers are a sleeping giant"

Or we can go with Wake up Madge by the Squiggles. Wake up Madge - It’s time to go to battle Wake up Ben - it’s time to smash somebody. Wake up Et - we need you to run more than tackle. Wake up Russ it’s time to get off the treadmill. Wake up Aioli the balls coming your way don’t drop it. Wake up Ch...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Nothing new to add, I think he is the worst fullback in the NRL or close to it.
As a centre I'd take him.

Re: Maguire: "Wests Tigers are a sleeping giant"

Aren't these quotes from the interview Spartan posted? Aren't there any NRL players with white noses to report on.

Re: How Much Interest Do You Have In The NRL?

I think the only way you can convince the NRL to change is to hit the bottom line.

Not sure how we do this? Maybe listen to ABC radio instead of watching channel 9? Encourage supporters to not renew membership? Don't attend games?

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

So he should have dumped the Kiwis mid series? Ivan says hi by the way. And so dose Mal and we know he was not much of an NRL coach. At that level, the captain should be able to run the team. If we'd signed Bennett I doubt he would have left England Because he wouldn't be available until 2020, whic...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

He had a prior commitment, are you saying he should just drop that because he has a better offer? We're professional and there are important matters to be dealt with at the Club. SImple, you allow things to drift or you get back and get on top of them. So he should have dumped the Kiwis mid series?...

Re: Luke Brooks

Luke should ask himself "is this my window to cash in?" IMO no. I think he will develop further over the next 2 or 3 years and will still be young enough to reassess his options. Last season was the first time he convinced many observers. Would be a shame to not build on that after the club and he b...

Re: Most Hated Teams

I'm with Geo. Have tried to hate some more than others, but it never lasts.

TBH I dislike the NRL immensely as an organisation. I will renew membership to not disadvantage WT, but encourage all fans of other scumbag teams to vote with their wallets and withhold their$$$

2 yr extension for 1.7 - 1.8 is fair for Brooks imo. He is developing nicely and we forumites tend to think ppl are worth less than what they can get elsewhere. I assume that we didn’t have any cap space left in 2018, else for mine he should have had an upgrade 🥕from that, as well as another for th...

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

A few of Iv's boys better rip in with a bit more gusto next season. Madge is not about the feels and the process and the wives all being friends. He is a workaholic who likes to win and expects the same.

Re: Hayne plane

Dudes once you're talking 750-1 mil for Jayne, that's serious dosh. Why not offer it to a player who isn't an egomaniacal bludger?

Don't ask me who...Take your pick. That would buy over half of the players in the current origin squads.

Re: Which was WS Best and Worst games of the 2018 season?

Rds 1 and 2 were special. The most pleasing fortnight of footy since 2005 for me. Second storm game probably the biggest achievement. They were ready for us, we gave up home ground advantage, another maggot's milestone. Bang. First manly game and south's game. Also great. Even rd 3, very proud of th...

Matt Dufty being shopped around.

I guess interest would come down to how Maguire wants to play and if he looks at Mybe as a 5/8 or fullback
Dufty is one of my favorite young players to watch.

Would love him here

What was the outcome? Much of the same Went through the process of exiting one guy and finding another. This was challenging. Didn't find Ivan's request too confronting, focused on the best outcome for the club rather than personal relationships. Club was in high demand from coaches who liked our s...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Thanks Pom

I think our players are better off with a bit of spite. We have lacked consistent intensity in the forwards forever, so hopefully they realise they have a point to prove. Thanks, Iv.
