Lachlan Galvin #277

Here he is again the forum disrupter!!
Just trying to get your eye of the ball onto himself.
Stop bagging the club champ, we all feel the pain. Don’t need someone ramming it down our throats! Give it a rest
So we know, but we can’t acknowledge it. Got it.
 
Anyone hear the rumours before about a player manager (unnamed) who had been caught making fake accounts on X agitating for the release of onE of their clients (also unnamed)?
Not hard to connect the dots.
That same account said TDS was looking to leave to the Dragons as well so most likely just a troll starting drama
 
Andrew Abdo has warned NRL clubs and agents anti tampering laws will be invoked if he finds approaches to Galvin have or are being made. Just on Ch9.
God on him.
We need help on this.
The only way low clubs like us can become competitive is through growing their own talent. When one is unearthed the administration should help them keep them.
I’d like to ask Buzz how he thinks our club can survive when good young talent are allowed to walk at 18. Why is he advocating for this to occur? I mean with the longevity of players these days, he could be active for 17 more years. The good clubs would love to have him…we need him.
His answer would be wholly resultant on how many teeth Id knock down his throat.

I think the NRL realise the competition will not be even if this is allowed to happen (even more so than it is now). We have young Jordan Miller in his debut this game. What happens if a "winning" club or two like his game?

There’s got to be some incentive, I.e. you bring a kid through your pathways and sign him to your top 30, then 5% of his salary doesn’t count on your cap.
 
I wanted to share something that moves away from the mainstream news coverage (of the situation) to a commentary piece. Can't find a link to last night's episode of The Matty Johns Podcast, but he basically echoed the same sentiment as described in the following article.

“THERE IS LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL”: JOHNS URGES GALVIN TO STAY PUT AT TIGERS​

Esteemed NRL pundit and former half Matty Johns has given his advice to Wests Tigers' young star Lachlan Galvin, days after he requested a release from the club.
Galvin, who emerged onto the scene at the start of this season, has been one of the most impressive rookies in recent memory and at just 18 years old, the Tigers faithful have had every reason to believe in the schoolboy star.

However, after a promising start to the season, the Tigers have spiraled out of control and are now on the back of nine straight losses, sitting at the bottom of the NRL ladder.

Reports emerged on Sunday morning that after his side’s embarrassing 56-14 defeat at the hands of the Dragons, Galvin requested an immediate release from his contract, which the Tigers denied just as quickly.

With his future now hanging in the balance and premiership heavyweights Penrith Panthers and Sydney Roosters circling him, Johns warned Galvin to not be “that player” who jumps ship.

“Firstly, I do feel sorry Galvin and his family, you just know what player managers are like, persuasive,” Johns told SEN 1170 The Run Home.

“I feel for him because as a young player, judging by his reputation going through schoolboy level he would’ve dominated and most of the sides he was apart of would’ve won, he finds himself at the moment at a team that’s getting close, if not rock bottom, they’re getting really close and it’s hard.

“My advice to Lachie would be, ‘Mate I understand what you’re going through but don’t be that player, certainly not at 18 years of age that jumps and leaves the club.”

The Panthers have a vacant spot in 2025 for the No.6 jersey and with a decent amount of cap space have become the favourites to poach the rookie sensation.

“I think at this point in his career, Lachie, what he has to understand, the most important is his learning curve, how he gets educated with his football, the things that he learns are the most important things, it’s not chasing that win,” Johns added.

“He will learn more, in my opinion, during these tough times than if he just strolled into a top four side and just basically swam in the wake of everything that was going on around him.

“I understand how tough it is, I really do, but the cavalry is coming, he’s got Jarome Luai coming, they’ve got a lot of injuries at the moment, they’ll get those guys back.

“I truly believe there is light at the end of the tunnel for the Tigers, he’s just got to hang in there.”

The Daily Telegraph’s David Riccio boldly declared on SEN 1170 Breakfast on Wednesday morning his view that Galvin would not be wearing a Tigers’ jersey come 2025.

Somebody flip Ricchio into a tree. Looks like it’s already happened a few times.
 
Was nice to see Hooper give Isaac Moses a serve
tonight on the daily tigers NRL360 segment. He
called Moses a hater lmao. If we had a fully fit Latu
as others have mentioned we wouldn't see this from
them. The general consensus from everyone on
the panel/in general is that he needs 2 pull his head in
