For anyone who’s interested Bitcoin just broke it’s all time high, strap yourselves in ladies and gentlemen.

I guess that means it’s gonna drop like 50% in the coming weeks hahahah

Euphoria over rising assets never ends well in the short term. Learned this the hard way at various trading firms over the years.

2021 Jersey released tomorrow…

I think they will be well received…Main black strip with white and orange chevron…Alternate the reverse Orange strip with black and white chevrons…

No more white woot they suck…

I like white, it’s what the good guys always wear.

White sux

White jersey = jinx

Always wondered what the winning percentages were between the Black v White jerseys ?

I’m confident both are below 50%

Not one coach in our history has a winning record😂 💩

Best was Sheens at 49%, worst was Lamb at 32%

Manly Warringah Sea Eagles has added real backline speed for next season after securing two of the best young wingers in the NRL.

The Sea Eagles have signed Christian Tuipulotu on a four-year deal and have followed it up with the signature of Jason Saab for three years. Both players become part of Manly’s top 30 squad for the 2021 season.

After securing a release from the final year of his contract with the Sydney Roosters, Tuipulotu commenced pre-season training with the Sea Eagles this week.

Sad that Manly sign the two best young wingers on the market yet we’re struggling to find quality candidates. Both of these wingers are better than our current wing prospects.

I have a feeling BB Kepaoa is going to be a gem although he reminds me of a faster version of Craig Innes. I also believe we should not be blocking the pathways for Rizk and I also believe Scolari will be in the mix.

I think Rizk will be in the mix, scolari maybe, but tuipolutu is a dynamic and evasive player. Rizk is, scolari is a bit more pure pace and fight, but stepping, creativity and power isn’t his go.

Kepaoa while a highly talented kid with pace is again a less dynamic Tuipolutu. Sure the juniors rated the highest don’t always kick on, and Asu sure seems to have a good head on his shoulders so that will serve him well, but when playing in the same team CT got all the wraps and Asu was fairly anonymous.
A>
a One thing about Tuipolutu, it may be just me but he had size but appeared to lack zip.?

Who do you think’s better, between Kei and Josh R?

Kei is a Michael Jennings type player. Rizk like a Papenhuyzen style. Both have their place but Rizk needs to get his body right.

With or without the extra juice?

Russ and Avo need their own TV series. Quality banter.

Debates over the defensive prowess of a winger is worthwhile for sure

Let’s hope the big O lifts his game next year because he was dead set rubbish this year

he had Fifita and Haas getting most of the carries and his wife was also battling cancer so that’s one way he’s performance could have been effected.

Been carried by a very good pack …we wll find out the hard way …again

There pack was ordinary apart from Haas.
Offa on his day can outplay any forward. Big motor too…like the pick ip alot.

Look back since he has started …Thaiday …Gillett …Fifita …Jaydn Sua …Essesse…Arrow …ordinary …lol

It’s quality right. I don’t know. I’m not sold on this signing. I hope it works out for us.

People are going to expect his signing as a pack leader like Josh was in 2020 …he isn’t that man …sorry …If Aloiai was a qlder he would of got chosen ahead of Joe O in 2019

You don’t like Joe and over rate Aloiai, I totally disagree with all you have said

No I don’t RATE Jo and everyone is cranky at Aloiai now …funny how the love fest for Aloiai ended when he dissed the club …

Support the Jersey not the player.

JA achieves instant plodder status once he pulls on another clubs colours.

May his career trajectory rival that of Sharon Woods post WTs…

I do support the jersey …The Brisbane pack carried Jo O …simple as that …Even Blair looked good playing for Brisbane …check mate

check mate 😂 😂 😂

Only thing the broncs players were carrying this year was their tails between their legs. Every player was rubbish, including Joe.

Different kettle of fish next year. Fresh start, new environment and should have a point to prove.

I don’t mind signing these types when their stock is down. Potential for good value if they regain form. Defs more upside than paying big bucks for JA who’s only had 1/2 a good season his whole career

From Michael Carayannis at DT.

Wests Tigers player of the year David Nofoaluma may have to consider putting himself onto the open market after receiving a contract offer from the club this week.

Nofoaluma has made it clear his first preference is to remain at the Tigers but the 26-year-old concedes he will now open himself up to speak with rival clubs.

“I obviously love the Wests Tigers and the fans, you can tell by my passion.” Nofoaluma said. “But in reality, I am heading into what could potentially be my last contract.

“I am going to explore all my options and weigh up what’s the best decision for myself and more importantly my future. I know with whatever decision I make, I can say I’ve given one hundred per cent every time I have stepped foot on the field for this club.”

Nofoaluma is coming off the best season of his career. Most pundits thought he was unlucky to miss out on the NSW Origin squad and he was easily the Tigers most consistent player scoring 17 tries in 20 games. Nofoaluma is officially a free agent with his current deal expiring at the end of next year. The Tigers tabled a three year deal to him this week

The Campbelltown product has been a rare shining light for the Tigers and is one of the club’s favoured sons given the recent departures of Robbie Farah, Chris Lawrence and Benji Marshall.

“There is no rush but I have my manager (Sam Ayoub) taking care of everything.” Nofoaluma said. “It would be extremely tough to leave but at the moment I have one more year remaining on my current contract and I will respect that. I’m back at training next week. I’ve really missed it and so I’m looking forward to ripping back into it with the boys and doing what I love.

“My contract situation will look after itself.”

Barring injury Nofoaluma should become the greatest Wests Tigers tryscorer next year. He sits 10 short of Marshall and Lawrence having scored 74 tries from 139 matches.

The potential loss of Nofoaluma would be a cruel blow to the Tigers given the public fallout between the club and prop Josh Alolai who is still inching towards a move to Manly.

Surely we can’t lose Nofa. Probably just trying to bump his price up a little - which means we shouldn’t even bother with him according to some people on here 😂

I’m in the extreme minority here but I wouldn’t be too upset if he left.

This is a “Pandering to minorities” free environment thank you very much…
