Balmain Leagues Club

Interesting article by Roy Masters. Haven’t put this up to start the ususal us vs them argument. What is interesting is that members of both Balmain Leagues and Wests Ashfield will be voting on Wests Ashfield proposal to take over all Balmains assets and debt with the possibility of redeveloping Balmain Leagues as Wests Tigers Leagues Club. Balmain juniors will be funded for at least the next 5 years and Flemington premises will be maintained. The other interesting point in Roy’s article is that Wests Ashfield will increase their ownership of Wests Tigers to 90%.

Vote no.

Why? It is only advancing the inevitable and would be a good outcome for Balmain Juniors and the development of a standalone Wests Tigers Leagues Club.

You’re dead a long time … plus I don’t trust Darcy Byrnes involvement.

Balmain is dead without this so I don’t see your point!

I wouldn’t trust Darcy Byrnes either however he has been imploring Wests Ashfield to get on board and doing something with the Rozelle site. Guess we will see his true colours if this goes ahead.

Byrne has been telling everyone it’s all going to be hunky dory for years on end.
A WestsTigers Leagues Club is not a Balmain Leagues Club.

So what are Balmain’s options without this, they are in administration?

Exactly

And it’s sure to give Balmains juniors a future with Wests Tigers rather than seeing it die off and the locals going to other junior leagues

Balmain is better off with 10% of something, than 100% of nothing.

Vote yes, and formally become one club.

Good news. Stand alone WT club would be a great outcome.

It’s guaranteed for 5 years.
Have you seen how big clubs work?
After the initial promise it’s see ya later.

As a member of Balmain Leagues Club I will be supporting this proposal.

The Balmain junior nursery is fairly strong

They would be mad to give up something that’s in their district just for the sake of it

It would have the potential to become stronger with Wests Ashfield behind it and a new COE down the road at Concord
