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

I'm predicting Madge. To be honest, his disciplinarian-ness might be exactly what we need. He is a proven winner and has a fantastic record. I'd be chuffed with him. Won a premiership then ran his team into the ground the next year Players weren’t happy with the over kill, and that , plus Souths pe...

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

The Poms post this afternoon. Said Maguire was the front runner. That was from article somewhere This morning, just the same source as most things that we’ve read for the last couple of months, a “journo”. No offence Pom, but unless it comes from someone involved it’s just another rumour Oh dear......

Michael Maguire is in the box seat for 2019 only thing that will change that is if In the next 24-36hrs Bennett changed his mind & quits Brisbane.
Also Luke Brooks will re-sign for a further 3 years.
Thanks for the info - sounds good.

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

That almost perfectly describes my position. Once I was the most one-eyed vocal Wests magpies supporter you could be. That passion has eroded to a point where I don't watch all WT games but I still follow them. If that makes me a fair weather fan then so be it. They're just words and don't reflect ...

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

I canned my auto renewal. Wanted to have a think about it. Always be a red hot Tigers man , but I am not sure I have the energy to commit for a full season especially if we have a coach who wants out and a sqaud of mainly plodders and penioners Nah, sorry, no you're not.

Re: POLL - Maguire 2019/Bennett 2020

All the so called league experts in the Sydney papers have Madge coming to us after the series of international matches are over. Considering he is currently coaching NZ, he'd be getting an inside view to the club through Marsters. As much as I'd prefer Bennett, we might end up with Madge .. so the...

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

A supercomputer somewhere in the world just burst into flames trying to calculate the odds of that happening. He’s already said that, to the players, So you're saying that Cleary will be here in 2019 and 2020 then? How would I know.? All I’ve heard is that he’s told the players that he is going to ...

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

I don’t see how there is an advantage in taking Madge over Bennett because we can get him a year earlier. 2019 is going to be a struggle regardless of whose coaching. We need to be big movers in the player market going into 2020. Waiting for Bennett would not affect recruitment for 2020. If Cleary ...

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

Seems an odd move my Maguire unless he has the Broncos gig lined up for 2020. So we help the Broncos by ensuring Maguire is signed for 2019. I can see some player trading happening of that is the case. I believe what he meant is that Maguire can start in 2019 but Bennett can only start in 2020. So ...

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

You can hammer me later if I’m wrong but I’m very reliably informed both Maguire 2019 and Bennett 2020 have verballly agreed to terms with the Tigers. It’s the clubs choice what suits them. Cleary is gone. Seems an odd move my Maguire unless he has the Broncos gig lined up for 2020. So we help the ...

So if we sign Bennett what do we do for 2019? Forfeit?

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Leilua would definitely be the player Canberra are trying to offload. They've been trying to get rid of him for ages with no success. We already have Marsters who's similar and got a much better temperament. Our other centre needs to be fast or at the very least, reliable. To be fair we're not real...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Joey Leilua is my guess. They've been trying to offload him for a while now if memory serves me correctly. Not sure Joey fits our culture but great player. What is " our culture " exactly? :?: No d*ck head policy Col. Didn't think I would need to spell that out to you. If that's our policy then why...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Heard there is a board meeting next week, so all should become clearer then. Canberra have been seeing if there is any interest in 2 outside backs(they don’t want to chip in anything for them),not for the first time. Also Latu was a done deal until the GC were no longer granting a release due to th...
