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

I have always supported the coach who my club appoints because I support the club first and foremost. The same applies to players; I won't stop supporting my club because it signs or gets rid of any individual player. Hence, I always allow my membership to roll over at season's end. On the matter of...

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

This might be a silly thing to say but what about we sign Wayne Bennett for 2020 for three years and let him appoint a caretaker coach for 2019. You never know we might get Demetriou for a year.Not sold on Maguire. Excellent idea Hmm, what if Cleary decides to get nasty and insists on staying for 2...

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

Penrith did announce that their board have approved Cameron Ciraldo as head coach for 2019. It was some weeks ago. I'm not sure about that (happy to be corrected) I did hear Gus say off the cuff Ciraldo would be instated as coach for next year .. At the time it hadn't occurred This is what I was go...

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

Every day that passes its becoming more and more likely that Ivan will be here in 2019. Maybe that is why the club has stayed silent. There's nothing to say. I actually don't believe the silence predicts either direction for Ivan. I would expect that the consistent and widespread media noise about ...

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

The point here is that no club can just gift a player to another club unless that player wants to go. I agree that we just need to sort out a good coach for ourselves at no extra cost.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Showed more talent in one game(semi final) than Fonua showed in the whole season. Ain't that the truth. I'd say more than he has shown in his whole life. LOL settle down. He's got potential to be a better all round player than Fonua, but Fonua had games where he made over 200 metres. From my memory...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

At the moment I'm sure the club is looking at this issue from all angles, including the legal situation of the various scenarios. Having sacked a coach 18 months ago and having to pay him out, to sack another coach would be a heavy financial burden if they had to pay him out plus pay another senior...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

by The fact that it is effecting our recruitment is a real issue b ecause at the end of the day it’s the quality of your roster that wins you matches more than who coaches your team. Our team will go backwards in 2019 without at least two more quality signings. You would also have to assume if CHN ...

Yep, Jason Taylor if memory serves me correctly. And we still got to top up his contract for three years running forum myth Not a myth he sign a contract with the Tigers and Taylor did not want him The Tigers made up the rest of the money He was signed before Taylor got here but the signing would h...

QLD Cowboys needed a clean out. None of them are worth a look at for WT. Unfortunately I can see the Tigers ending up with players like Linnet and Fensom .. :( X1 -3 Well, looks like the signing of Ryan Matterson has been forgotten already. OK everybody, lose those happy faces and get back down in ...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Are you at all surprised with the lack of values? Strong get stronger. I am still trying to think of another example of a club losing three above average Australian Schoolboy juniors in one off season. West’s lost 3 internationals to Manly, another international and a player who would play origin t...

[Wests Tigers Head Coach Ivan Cleary said he looked forward to working with Matterson.

Re: Ryan Matterson

He was given permission to talk to other clubs. The Roosters pulled the pin! Im saying Taupau or TPJ is the reason the Roosters have let him go. That and the concussion risk. Good player unwanted by his current club = perfect signing. Let's be honest, we can second guess any signing. If they're you...

Re: What a mismatch

No effort tonight. Disgraceful. Rubbish! Plenty of effort. Just not good enough! You're kidding if you think we had a go tonight. I think we had a go but we played dumb football against a pack of monsters. We needed to run those big forwards around with short passing around the ruck but instead we ...

Re: Thanks Tigers!

Yes, we do need to turn the corner but we all knew that, when Cleary was appointed, we would be setting out on yet another rebuild. As far as rebuilds go, this one hasn't been too bad; we have been inconsistent but that's to be expected and we have managed to take some highly prized scalps this year...
