Signing Suggestions & Rumours Discussion

💯

Seems to have a crack at least, unlike Peach.
Only 21, has genuine speed and for the most part held his own in a prelim final. If nothing else, he would be a good addition to push Laurie for the fullback spot. Still plenty to learn, but has some great attributes to make him become a regular 1st grader.

Without many available players off contract in 2023, I really do hope the reported swap happens.
 
Good Morning Any signings ? Of course not . Any serious rumours of likely signings ? Probably not .Suggestions as everyday Many !
Fact- Wests Tigers are a club that's got worse every year and now hit bottom
We are also considered a political hotbed with a troubled environment
and as such top class players are reluctant to come .
My problem is if I felt that these core issues were at least being admitted to and addressed I could sit back and wait for the fruits of "the new era " to take effect
Instead Everthing stays the same
Here's a little test for our " harmonious board" . How many hours have board members spent in last few years arguing about what our cup and junior sides should be called
You’re posts have to be some of the least thought out here…
We get it - you’re frustrated…

Stop pretending you know how it is - think - then type - then read it - think again - then press reply if you see fit.
 
Our forwards would wanna play like Penriths then
It’s a big job and obviously can take a lot of game time together to develop that strong communication link. Example. Last night Edwards returning the ball, did everything, but send a high priority email and text to check his in box, for Staines to understand that he was trying to give him a 2 on 1 with his winger who was hugging the sideline. Staines ignored the opportunity and kept coming in.

Noticed Staines positional play was ordinary. Too deep on a lot of backline shifts.
 
I'm convinced he is a very good player in a very good team. I'm also convinced it is hard to look a very good player in a poor team. Lets be honest he is not going to get the platform from our forwards to do his stuff.

We'll have to see if he performs for the next 3 seasons. It's a long time.

He is good. I don't think he was great last night. He made some mistakes - a poor pass and a dropped ball. It gets hidden when your team is that good.

He is definitely one of the top couple of players in the comp in his position right now though and he is a massive upgrade on what we've had for a long time.
 
I cannot remember which commentator made this comment but it should resonate - Staines' speed allowed him to cover in defence. He really gave it a good go last night and keeps on incrementally improving. That is the type of player we need at WTs.

I like his attitude. He runs it back hard. I hope we do get him. I'm not convinced he is a walk up starter in our team though.

How good is To'o ? He is like a better version of Nofo.
 
For anyone interested - Jack Welsby tore Leeds to shreds for St. Helens in the SL Grand Final at Old Trafford today. Even the great Jonathon Davies described him as “Outstanding”. And that’s now in three consecutive Grand Final victories where in the first (aged barely 19) he won the game single-handedly in the last two seconds against Wigan and in the second shifted the momentum against a huge Catalans side and sent Saints home champions. Seriously, if you guys are looking for a difference maker - tell your owners to pick up the phone.

If only we had owners that were accountable 😂
