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

Wayne in 2020 for me too. We're not in a gf winning position next year, so I would wait for someone who will bring the $s and the players and provide a better long term result for the Tigers. Get rid of Cleary and bring in hodgo. Would be an amazing story if benji, Robbie and hodgo can get us to a ...

Re: New coach.. Who should we target?

If we end up with Wayne for 2019 I would be shell shocked with excitement. Corporate dollars plus young talent pool !!! Both we need to make the club more attractive . I couldnt give a stuff if he is near 70 - he commands respect and attention

Re: New coach.. Who should we target?

Just a personal opinion but Wayne Bennett all day long over Michael Maguire. We need a coach that can potentially attract a nursery of talent. Plus lets remember Maguire had the same Souths side going like a busted you know what in 2016 and 2017. With all the talent coming through at Brisbane that w...

Re: New coach.. Who should we target?

If Cleary goes I do everything in my power to chase Wayne Bennett. He has a huge stature in the game. The talent pool in Brisbane is endless and his connection to that alone would be terrific for a club that struggles to attract players. I dont think he would be attractive to the Tigers but the mone...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

LMAO.... "reputable rumours" That's gotta challenge "my source is my TV" Eddie-esque "I don't care about logic, this is football!" At least get the quote right. Its was "I don't care about logic this is Rugby League" !! Im still not convinced Cleary will be our coach in 2019. I would hold him to hi...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

This was always going to happen. Plain and simple - Cleary was evasive and sheepish the final 6 weeks when asked on the subject. It's clear for me he wants to be at Penrith sooner rather then later. Part of me says bugger Penrith lets tell them to come back and get him in 2 years. Just to see Gould ...

Re: Luke Brooks

Imo - Farah has cost him the Dally-M. Lol. If it wasnt for Farah, we'd still be playing Elijah Taylor at hooker and running dead last with Parramatta And our crowds would be down to zero and zero tv ratings etc etc In all honestly we'd have probably kept Killa, and be playing against the Dragons th...

Re: Luke Brooks

Pretty sure that I stated it at the time, that amongst others, the worst thing about Farah coming back was always going to be bringing BBF back from the burrow with him. I can cop the other stuff and find some interesting, but his worship of Farah is way beyond ridiculous. Like a good amount of oth...

Ivan Cleary in a nutshell.

Has done amazing to get a very weak squad to compete every week.

Unfortunately he is the one who assembles this very weak squad.
Agree to an extent.

Thought we did really well this year.

Future looks bleak though.

Re: **Live game thread**

I disagree In the year we had good forwards packs (Gareth Ellis) we made the Top 4 in 2010 and 2011. You are dreaming if you think we had good forward packs under Sheens ? Do you really think that ? You must not remember guys like Danny Galea playing in the front row under Sheens. Guys like Skando ...

Re: **Live game thread**

They have been good this year. As has Benji and many of our squad players. Brooks and Lawrence they have been around like Benji and Farah (players who have taken us to 3 finals in 15 years) Brooks is 0 for 6 as our chief halfback. Duck egg. Lawrence joined in 2006. The year after we won the competi...

Tonight was always going to get ugly....one team season was dead and the other side still had life. So you are wasting your time getting emotional about getting a touch up tonight.
