    I don't think Seyfarth. If we have a couple of injuries in the back row we have next to no replacements so we really need him.

    Problem is now every cap has cash. Before this there were only a few. Now every club has an extra 1-2 mill depending on how they have aligned their contracts. And again, if other clubs are in the mix we are far less desirable.

    Moses will stay at Parra. The cap rise has done nothing to help this situation. I am expecting Bateman to be announced tomorrow afternoon.

    I think the Tigers are trying to do an XMAS present/announcement. I think you will see Bateman sign late in next week.

    OFFICIAL 2023 Ins and Outs

    Thanks King. I still think the back row (11-13) is still incredibly light. We are only an injury away from exposing some guys not up to it. We have Papali, Blore and Bateman (maybe). If one of them go down we are looking at: Saukuru and Tuki (couldn't get a run in 2022 when everyone did)...

    "IF" the article is correct, AD has a very over inflated opinion of himself.

    I expect the Klemmer announcement to be done by Monday.

    Woods is not good and worse than when he left with the new rules. However, I feel we are short a prop (depth wise), even if we do sign Klemmer. Woods on a baseline contract would be okay, but not much more than that.

    It won't be a trial year though if they sign with other clubs before the season starts. We don't have the luxury of giving these guys 10 rounds and then choosing the 1-2 we want to persist with, as they will sign elsewhere. Knights, Bulldogs, Dolphins are heavily in the market for halves, and a...

    Dragons fans seem to have inside mail seem "that Spencer has signed with them".

    You can put a line through him. Thats him saying he wants to stay at Melbourne, but he doesn't want to sound too keen as he needs to get the best offer he can etc, and keep Tigers/Dolphins in too increase the offer.

    I have heard the Simpkin one about the loan as I believe its been indicated Korisau will be 9 with a plan to use Nu Brown for a short interval as the backup, leaving Simpkin in reserve grade. But I can not get the Leniu one. He knocked back Melbourne and said he wanted to be a panther for life...

    Spotted: David Hollis having lunch with Tigers officials

    The Hollis rumour has been doing the rounds for a couple of weeks. I asked a Parra mate about him and he said he was in their flegg team for half of the year but went MIA after that (probably dropped). Also said he is a good player but just not physical enough.

    Need to offer overs for both Leniu and Martin. Staines I am neither here nor there. If Penrith are baulking at 550k for Martin, we need to come in 20-25% more at about $750-800k for him to consider us. (He is not coming for slightly more people) Lenui Korisau Stefano Papaali Blore Martin...

    Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow

    Thoughts on trying to bring HTF down to the Tigers? He has been playing the whole year off the bench. Most weeks has been getting maximum 20 minutes and some weeks barely anything. Surely he can not be keen to stay if they play on keeping Tuilagi and Feldt? Has lightning speed as a winger or...

    Which Players Survive This Disastrous Year?

    How many of these guys will play a part in next years side? We know that Garner, Madden, Tamou and Tuilagi are gone. That leaves the following for me: Should be in first grade 1) Daine Laurie (Far and away best 1 we have. has pace) 5) Brent Naden (Probably) 6) Adam Doueihi (Meant to be...

    Laurie has had a poor start but he is far and away the best fullback option we have. Unfortunately though, his playing style will never 'dominate' in a team like ours. Small bodied fullbacks like him really only dominate behind a really good pack. Our pack can't offload or put him through gaps...

    Kelma Tuilagi Signs With Manly

    How can they possibly outbid us? They have Turbo and DCE on million dollar contracts. They also have a few forwards who are probably better than anyone on our roster (Schuster, Olakatau, Taupau, Paseka, Jurbo). We are also 600k under the cap? How on earth was it a financial thing? I think more...

    Kelma Tuilagi Signs With Manly

    Tuilagi could only play after Round 11 or 16 or something. He was put in when he could and played a few games before doing his shoulder. Was going well. Where Maguire can not excuse him self is the fact that he sees this guy every day at training, and didn't have him locked up on a good...
