    You've got to see the irony....Trent Barrett was the man behind the Panthers success (as an Assistant) and carried the 'Can't Miss' tag. Gus was he's biggest supporter. Then it was the job has overwhelmed Trent, but we've appointed Cameron Ciraldo (with essentially the same experience as Trent...

    I mentioned this last week. A mate of mine is a Journo in NZ. He said that Benji will open doors for the Tigers that they haven't had access to before. As regards Caleb Clarke, he doesn't like to toe the line and that's not the way the All Blacks roll. As far as Caleb is concerned its very...

    Benji being appointed coach has been meant the Tigers get a look in where they previously wouldn't with the elite Rugby Players in NZ. You won't see it in this recruiting cycle but wait until after the Rugby World Cup next year.

    A mate who is a Journo in NZ suggested this was very much on cards back in June. I did post, but those "in the know" on the forum shot it down. Just to appreciate the situation (and what we might be getting), Caleb very much marches to his own beat. NZ Rugby tolerate Caleb and Caleb tolerates...

    I mentioned on the forum a while ago that the Tigers had been sounding out fringe All Blacks (outside backs) who weren't going to make the World Cup side, sorry I wasn't told who. That was from a mate who is a Journo in NZ. Apparently Benji as a coach is a big drawcard.

    Cloudy I heard some very intriguing information on the weekend (from a mate who's a journo in NZ), he told me that the Tigers are having a crack at a couple of fringe All-Blacks (outside backs) who are unlikely to make the 2023 World Cup side. I was also told that Benji is incredibly popular...

    So by that reasoning, every time there is a change at a club (be it the coach changes or a player changes) all contracts become null and void? What if a player you wanted to play with decides to move on after a year, does your contract become null and void because he was the only reason you came...

    The way things are going at Manly at the moment, I'd be inclined to start asking some polite questions around certain player's futures.

    I'd be happier with trading Nofo to Melbourne permanently. If Craig Bellamy can stop Nofo defending like Stevie Wonder than Craig Bellamy is a genius.

    The Bulldogs must have a very flexible salary cap. I mean its not as though they've been down this track before!

    Sheens was the one who signed Braith to the Tigers. Braith was a very unhappy camper when Tim wasn't the coach when he arrived. Braith was apparently a very big Tim fan.

    From an optics point of view, its genius. Benji is a feel good story. It takes the Tigers from a team who can't get a coach to one where they anointed one of their favourite sons to instill the Tiger DNA (whatever that might be!) to the team going forward. All under the watchful eye of the...

    Luke I always thought you got blamed for more than you should have. But I have to admit you had me fooled. You really don't have it do you!

    No finger pointing/ excuses - Joe O knows exactly what we need. Didn't Tonga get lapped by a NZ side coached by Michael Maguire?
