Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

One of my biggest concerns is who kicks next year? Lolohea can't kick and none of our signings are goal kickers. Could we kill two birds with one stone and try and get a backrower who can kick like Ethan Lowe or Taukeiaho from the Roosters? The Cowboys wouldn't want to let Lowe go, but the emergence...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Luciano Leilua come off contract at the end of 2018. Was a weapon for the Dragons at the end of 2016 in the back row and hasn't been used at all this season. 6'1 and 112kg with a great offload. Would slot straight into our 17. If you speak with Illawarra supporters there is a reason why he hasn't b...

Re: Tyson Gamble

Is there any chance now that Moses has left the building and no
real standout replacement at this stage whether they may consider bringing Tyson in this season to learn the structures and maybe earn a shot?

Re: Israel Folau? (No rumours yet)

Don't need another million dollar + player. Buy three good players for one Folau. He wouldn't cost a million plus on the cap. The NRL would chip in with concessions to bring him back and arrange a number of guaranteed TPA's outside the cap limit to help it happen. You could probably get him for $70...

Re: Russell Packer - OFFICIAL..

Great signing! For too long now the Tigers have been known as a small or soft pack. It's nice to know that come next year we'll have a mix of size and skill in the forward pack. One thing I'm actually really excited about and it's probably a bit of an underrated point on our two new props is they're...

Re: Mitchell Moses released [Official]

If we gave him up to get nothing in return, then i'm sorry to say that is weak. Should have let him languish in mediocrity for the rest of the year if that is the case. I'm with you on this. I think letting him go without any financial compensation or player swap makes us look spineless. I'm on thi...

ESL/Rugby/State Cup Options?

Hi all, Just wondering if there's any players out there who people have a strong opinion of and believe could make the transition to the NRL and be solid pick ups for the Tigers from either state cup/under 20's comps, ESL or Rugby? These could include players like Fonua/Thompson (rumoured already) w...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Tell you what Will Hopoate is having a great game tonight... his positional play is excellent... if we can get him for $450-$500 k and he plays Sunday's he'd be a good pickup Cleary needs to make him No1 priority Really? Personally I just don't see it with Hoppa. For me your fullback needs that rea...

I posted today about a friend who's linked with the Roosters had sent me a message today and said that he was sorry about what would happen in about the next 10 minutes.

Re: Marquee Player in Salary Cap

Yeah the idea of the unlimited TPA thing is to allow the likes of Billy Slater to earn $$ for his Powerade ad campaigns, without punishing the Storm. In reality, the system is heavily abused by pretty much everyone. That's where Broncos have a big advantage being the only NRL team in a city as big ...

No hoppa... not interested. Agree, we shouldn't even be pointing a finger in his direction IMO (pun intended) Plays one good game and his name is coming from the hills. Has been average at best for a number of years. He's a talent, but I really think there's better options. We need speed. Get Gideo...

Re: Marquee Player in Salary Cap

Now that Harry T is no longer 'associated' with the club this is where I had imagined a few 'private meetings' may have occurred in regards to how he could still 'help' the club. With that association not being there in regards to sponsorship I'd imagine Harry may have come in with a few 'donations'...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Mahe Fonua done deal at WT according to Brent Read on twitter. He's usually pretty accurate. If this is ligit I can't remember any rumblings about him as a potential signing, which is good. Good to see us looking a bit left field too through the ESL. There's some quality over there without the heft...

Re: Ava - Sharks (Yet to be confirmed)

Sad news if Ava leaves. Nothing fancy but played his role in the team. Has really become a consistent prop over the last couple of years and earned a starting spot in the team. Didn't give away many penalties and took the tough runs unlike Woods. I was lucky enough to play with Ava when he moved ove...
