Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Anyone know if Fonua-Blake has moved on from Manly - may be with Hasler now less players are likely to want out.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

If only I had a dollar for every time someone used the term “hard running back rower” or “hard running centre”. What absolute garbage descriptions. Aren’t all players supposed to run hard? You'd think so, but they all don't really do they. Fairly obvious that we've got some back rowers that we want...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

IMO the 2 spots left need to be filled by: 1) a fast, hard running outside back and 2) a tough impact front rower who can break the line. If we could somehow move on Rochow or McQueen the next choice should be a big mobile back rower. I have been hoping patiently that we would hear some announcemen...

Re: oh BTW Tedesco is about to win the Golden Boot

What a joke the Golden Boot has become in Rugby League. In other sports the World's best player is celebrated with great reverence - Makinson who??

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

On Wighton - he obviously has some baggage, but if he gets through the sentencing OK then I'm inclined to think that Madge will be the right guy to get him focused on his footy and not playing up off the field. He has certainly got some attacking ability and strong front on defence. Centre looks lik...

On another point - Robert Jennings. Any update on him - if he is available why wouldn't we have a go at him?

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

This latest development on Brooks has me concerned. Man, just when I was getting over the whole disappointment of the Cleary saga - now this. I really hope we can secure Luke, but really if the Rorters are after him its not going to be an easy negotiation. It would have to be incredibly tempting for...

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

I can't believe fans here are still complaining about the signing of our new coach, Madge. I for one am glad the debacle is over and we can get on with the preseason and 2019 onwards. Yes, it was crap that Ivan betrayed the trust of many, but I'm not blaming management for that - in fact I think tha...

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

Thanks for that TYGA. Sounds fine to me - just glad to get on with it. Have got to say Madge seems to have grown in stature over the last month or so - certainly hasn't done his reputation any harm, so let's hope he brings all the good characteristics players are talking about, to us. In my view, as...

Re: Benji Marshall re-watched all his 2018 games before deciding his future with Tigers

As I have already expressed in response to previous posts bagging Farah and Benji's initial recruitment for 2018 and subsequent 2019 re-signing.... my thoughts are: 1) Taken in the context of where we were as a squad and as a club - both signings were appropriate and made for reasons that suited the...

Re: POLL - Maguire 2019/Bennett 2020

As this saga has gone on, my feelings that we absolutely must not have Cleary as coach in 2019 have strengthened. Any solution but Cleary again, is my view. A lot of fans on here are talking about how Bennett will bring players with him and how if he stays at the Broncs next season he might even hav...

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

Geo's got a point. Wouldn't the Broncs be concerned that Bennett stays for a year then comes to us possibly taking certain players with him (TPJ for example) - and what about their issues of recruitment for 2020?? By signing Bennett for 2020 aren't we sort of doing to the Broncos just what the Panth...

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

Like many, I was a big fan of Ivan until this whole mess started to pan out. I even gave him the benefit of the doubt for a while there, but now I feel that the only way forward for us is to cut ties asap, I don't think we can go another season with Ivan. If that means that Bennett can't start as co...

Re: For all the people moaning about signings

I don't mind discussing potential signings. I just think it's ludicrous to suggest that anything short of signing basically every first-grade-standard player on the market by early October dooms the club to the wooden spoon next year. The list you've come up with would have chewed up every bit of c...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

It's hard to go past the talk about Bennett staying at the Broncos for 2019 - so that leaves us the options of either keeping Cleary for next season, getting a fill in coach for 2019 or looking at Maguire for a longer term. Of the above I think Maguire is probably the best scenario. On Fonua-Blake, ...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Just on Fonua..... one of the differences between great NRL players and average ones is consistency. If Fonua could consistently play like he did the game back from being dropped (I think that was the one game he ran over 200 metres and absolutely smashed it), then yes he'd be a beast and you could ...
