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

For some reason I feel better about Maguire then Bennett. I think Bennett never really wanted to come here and that's not what we need. If Maguire really wants to be here then I'm happy with that. His no nonsense attitude will make the playing group stronger and hopefully put the plodders on notice....

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

Cleary is smart enough not to walk. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ When I thought he had some integrity I would have said Cleary wouldn't do that but we know that bird has flown. If I was WT and he does decide to play hardball I would: a) appoint a coach for 2019 an...

Re: POLL - Maguire 2019/Bennett 2020

Bennett is definitely more accomplished, but my concern is whether Bennetts heart is really in it.

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

It's no different to our club/fans not wanting Ivan around now we know he has eyes for another team. I agree with most of what you said, except I don't think Wayne is so affected by signing a new contract w another club. Bennett has massive currency at Broncos and Broncos themselves have decided to...

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

It has to be 2019 for Bennett or move on to someone else. It doesn’t have to be anything. Eating 12 months for Bennett would work out fine. I just hate the idea of wasting another year waiting for the next year to come. Yes seems that we are catering to two coaches who both would rather be somewher...

Re: Just Jokes

Gus rings up Ivan and says "Mate. Are you interested in coming back to coach the Panthers?" Ivan says "I dunno. What's going on with Nathan?" Gus says "I'm having a bash at my place on Mad Monday. How about you come over and we'll have a talk about it." Ivan says "Righto. What time?" Gus says "Abou...

Re: Wests Tigers provide update on 2019 NRL squad

Other clubs will be shaking in their boots looking at our team. We are re-building (which is all we seem to do) but I'm guessing next season will be much like this year, a couple of wins in a row to keep us interested but no real threat to the premiership.

I believe that so much more will be revealed on the first day of pre-season training when Cleary finally returns from his self imposed incognito sabbatical to expose himself to the NRL public.
If Cleary returns for pre-season training.

Re: New coach.. Who should we target?

Madge is a noted overtrainer , you get results for 2 seasons and the players burn out ..... Dont you think a coach can improve? He was sacked for that flaw. If he can accept the blame and look to improve himself i dont see why he cant become a career coach. I agree and this was my thinking today. Y...

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

I hope the father / son combo destabilizes the team and club with Ivan is left to think about what could have been. By the way, Phil Goulds crocodile tears at the club presentation made me sick. He doesn't care about anyone except himself.

Re: New coach.. Who should we target?

Bennett might not be lying. He personally hasn't had contact with the tigers, but his management might have. I...

Just a thought Broncs players off contract: 2018: Pangai Jr, Oates, Lodge, Mago 2019: Ofehengaue 2020: Fifita, Staggs, Sua A total rebuild could be done by next offseason if Wayne still has the pull. 1.
