Re: Western Suburbs District Junior Rugby League Ltd has gone into liquidation

I thought Wests Campbelltown looked after the juniors, surely they arnt short of a quid. This is a good question. A few years ago they broadened their mission to fund sport rather than just rugby league and ditched their support for Wests Tigers (citing they get better value as a sponsor rather tha...

Myself and the missus were iPhone fans for years.

We both recently got S9 Galaxys and reckon they blow Apple out of the water.

Re: Who do we offload?

When Wests Tigers pay the CAP fine I wonder how much, if any, will still be left to buy players for 2019? A fine AND including the $639k deal under the 2019 cap. The reports say that we have not spent the entire cap. So it looks like we're going to need to offload one of our better players to fit u...

Re: NRL Announcement

It's great to stick by your club, but I can't help but feel a lot of us are looking at this through rose coloured glasses. The fact that Pascoe never reported the proposed deal to the NRL, nor thought he needed to is a blunder of epic proportions . Your average punter knows full well that these kind...

Re: NRL Announcement

There appears to be some degree of poor governance here.

Surely the club knew that an offer of post-career employment would be looked at closely by the NRL?

Re: Wests Tigers considering forming a partnership with South West Sydney A-League franchise

What a terrible bit of journalism.

Upon reading it closer, the writer phoned up Pascoe, asked a few questions and, boom, we're considering a partnership:

Asked would he be happy to work with the football franchise, Pascoe: “Yeah, why not.

Jackson Lupina kaufusi.Scored two sensational tries on debut then went nowhere. My friends and I might have supplied the only banner Jackson Kaufusi ever had. 7 foot high. "Kaufusi.

Re: TPA’s

If clubs are willing to systematically 'encourage' players to use performance enhancing drugs, it's pretty safe to say money and benefits are changing hands outside of what's being reported.

Re: Player punishment for indiscretions

Our sport has people like Wayne Bennett, signing Matt Lodge on the cheap in a pathetic attempt to win a premiership and keep his job. And that sums it up. If a club is pressured to sack a player, it's a safe bet that someone will sign them up if the player is half decent, once the dust has settled. ...

Re: Forget about damage to rugby league – what about damage to women?

If thr NRL were fair dinkum, they wouldn't allow some of these grubs to keep playing our game. Yet they do, again, again and again. Matt Lodge is a great case. The NRL's own gender adviser labelled it: 'one of the most disturbing cases I've ever reviewed' - https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-03-05/mat...

I don’t think Momorovski things the position was always his. He believes he has to earn it - which is good. Mahe is rocks and diamonds but still has something to offer in 1st grade I believe. Very damaging attacking player when focussed. But that’s the issue hey - focus mahes form downfall last sea...

Re: Why Nathan Cleary was never heading to the WT's

For those going on about 'loyalty' - get off your high horse. Coaches and players have no loyalty. It's a job. They go to the highest bidder. They aren't fans like us. For those that look at life that way, yes, but certainly not that way for all. Not everyone is self centered and greedy. I hear wha...

I hope he comes good, but if not, some arrangement should be made for McQueen to move on and free up a spot in the roster.
