Re: Cowboys interested in Mcqueen

This has to go down on Par with Nick Graham as the worst Wests Tigers signing ever especially when you consider a 3 year deal . Who approved this JT or Cleary ? Ryan o’hara Anyone? But in all honesty, based on field time cayless an ballin are in the mix, but only through injury. All reports were th...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I like Paul Kent's notion. TPA's to go....no need for them now as Salary Cap has increased so much over last 5 years or so. TPA's were originally bought in before the game could "afford" million dollar contracts and to deter players going to UK in times when they had the $$$ to splash around and Ru...

Re: Questions for Pascoe

Good work Ben, only piece of advice i can give is to be cautious in your meeting about how you approach your questions. No one likes to be ambushed, and may result in not getting many answered questions. Good luck with it all, I hope you get some great results. A few I would consider: - what has bee...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Forgetting the supposed 'fire sale' for a moment, I think most here agree that we could still use one more NRL standard prop for next season. The available prop stocks are a tad low now, but there are still a couple of current first graders off contract, namely Sam Tagatese & Jeremy Latimore both f...

I'd also pass on Morris cheap or no. Beyond his 'best before'.
Think it all comes down to $$$. His experience is something that can not be matched by anyone in our backline.

Would be a great mentor can fill wing of FB. But at the right price.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Sorry to interrupt the Farah talk, Tigers have made enquiries to Bulldogs about Brett Morris. Sorry about the misleading post a week or so back about the 2 signings thought they were 1 FG one depth turns out was both depth. Great to see you back again mate. Happy for any info, things change and no ...

Re: Connor Watson

Classic 5th tackle.

I just read 2 links under the article, it was brooks to dogs and teddy to backflip on roosters. Lol.

Hopefully they have a higher success rate with Watson.

Re: Tuimoala Lolohea - This Season....

Nothing official, why the doom and gloom? Wait for official confirmation before ho humming. Yeah, no concern yet. I just checked Cowboys forum, they still have him coming here. We will just have to let this play out. If he wants to play regular 80min football, in a spine position. I believe we are ...

Should be some official announcements released over the next 7 days. Lolohea is done but don't expect to see him within the next fortnight. Hooper is spot on with fonua but not sure where the Corey Thompson news is coming from. Haven't heard anything there with him. Haven't had any confirmation wit...

Re: Woods - Contract Thread..

We still have to replace all of these players that are leaving. Who do we replace them with? I was thinking the same. Woods and Ava is our front row gone. Matulino is a good addition but we'll need another 2 front rowers signed. And you'd think we are longshots to get Packer now that Dugan looks li...

Re: Canterbury Bulldogs table four-year deals to lure James Tedesco and Aaron Woods from Wests Tigers

Yeah. I was quite disappointed when I heard. And was hoping he may change his mind. But I'm now past that, and trying to look at the positives. Cleary could have almost 2 mil he was going to use on 2 players at one stage, not including anything extra that was still available. It's a great place for ...

If teddy and woods are on the bus I'm happy but if there not, well under the bus is the the best place for both.
From what I'm hearing from a reliable source. Teddy isn't on the bus.

I hope he is wrong. But doesn't look positive.

No idea about woods.
