Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Only two ways it can end from here.. 1)Ciraldo gets the Panthers deep into the finals and triggers the Panthers Board(ie Gus)to reconsider his viability as an ongoing coach.This WONT happen 2)Cleary,currently on around $600k pa(after being picked up off the scrapheap btw),will contemplate a substant...

Re: Aaron Woods - Signs with Bulldogs 2018 - Sharks 2018 [Official]..

According to SMH ,Woods dropped $175k of his own to join Sharks(and we wld have matched Dogs offer for sure) Throw in lost 3 x $30k SOO appearances plus 2 X$20k Kangaroos...and that's just for this year.Expensive. Add in there loss of form so hes now warming the bench and more importantly loss of re...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Our needs are the same as they were 12 months ago... We still need a quality hooker that can play 80 mins..thats what Liddle was supposed to be.Farah/Liddle is an expensive compromise both financially plus wasting a bench spot.IMO Segyaro preferable to both We still need a big hard running back rowe...

Re: Coaching circus

IC is pretty much the only coach with the experience and most importantly the results that can actually work with Gould a very rare and valuable breed indeed.. Gould will probably get him sooner rather than later with a little cash splashed our way. McGuire is technically at least as good an option ...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Think all coaches who are nemployed carry a little baggage tbh..as do most of the current coaches excepting Bellamy and Siebold
Need someone proven at this level,and McGuire with a premiership under his belt is THE standout.
Just hope he has learnt from the issues which caused his downfall

Re: R.I.P Jarrod Lyle

Gotta give credit to Bryson de Chambleau(spelling?)who donated his entire $25k purse from yesterdays PGA long driving comp to the Lyle family.Hes only a young man himself,but IMO hes welcome anytime downunder.

Re: Sue to dogs

Hope we keep Sue, we need big guys and were just getting run over. IMHO, as much as it hurts this forum we should have considered taking Woods back. He is better then a fair few current forwards. Are you kidding? He was falling off tackles left, right and centre Thursday night. He looked so slow. I...

Re: Wests Tigers sign Robbie Farah for 2018 Official

I hope Ivan has a sharp instrument proof vest...cause it will always be someone elses fault.I sure hope Robbie has learnt something from the "experience"..three coaches careers ended
That's what $800k gets you I guess
As for Ivan...a drowning man clutching serpents comes to mind.

Reynolds and McQueen just happened to be in the right place at the right time...and we paid a significant premium to regain some cred that the "little 3" significantly diminished in the space of a few weeks.

Re: Tui never fullback again

First loss with Tui at fullback and by 2 points. Lets hang him. Dumb play by other forum favourites, its OK. Wake up, this loss today was in no way Tui's fault. Nothing tops Fonua tapping the ball forward from his own in goal, but somehow that doesn't rate a mention. And there is a reason that Fonu...
