still hearing from my contact ewan aitkin is coming from st george, another centre i know but solid and not a too much of a hefty price tag. He will be here before june 30
not thrilled about it but madge must have a plan

Highly questionable plan if Aitken is part of it

" Today I have made a decision for what’s best for myself and my little family ,
I would like to thank the raiders organisation for the last 3 years and a half, you’ve given a young man a chance to showcase his talent onto the paddock an for that i am so grateful for. To all the raiders fans thank you for the support an love throughout those years. I’m definitely going miss the Viking clap and running out to that 😢
To brothers that I have made since my time there , We’ve had some ups and downs but always stuck strong and got through it together. The memories I’ve made and the bond that I have with yous will never be forgotten. 😘
To west tigers , I can’t wait to get up there and start training, meet my new teammates and being apart of a team that has so much history behind it. For me , it’s a blessing in disguise that I get to play along side my lil brother and to make more memories up there.
Thank you again , Raider #330 is out n
The eye of the tiger is coming 🐅

I for one am not that impressed with BJ’s statement. Kind of sees us as just a means to end to helping his family out imo.

Hope Maguire sharpens up his attitude and he really buys in. Otherwise its another over paid signing.

I doubt the words ‘Loyalty’ & ‘Buying into the culture’ were inked on the employment contract. His 1st priority should be to his family and then himself. The club comes after that. He’s here to do a job, nothing more…

ET would be 180cm max and about 95kg. He also gives away more penalties than any other player. His time is up, I’m afraid.

Gosh so lazy, it would take you 2 minutes to do the proper research - 190 cm and 101 kg. ET is far bigger than you might think, that means he’s almost 6’3".

If ET was wearing 4 inch heels he’d be close to 6’3.

That’s a typo on the Tigers website

Souths version of Pom reporting AD, AJ and Gagai all staying at Souths. Confident they’ll also be getting JAC.

Uncle Wayne with the latest innovation, playing backs as forwards…

Dude on Twitter (I know) said something has happened and the Joey thing may be in trouble.

Twitter is pure trash. The landfill of society.

Everything you see is secondhand, like a dodgy used car yard

What he’s really saying is ‘Announcement in 48hrs’

Going with 72hrs

72 is blasphemy… always 48

Some stats from last season. I’ve given the averages over all games played rather than total amounts because the NRL included stats for finals games (weird) which have inflated the top 8 teams figures.

Included is the required stat for a top 4 ranking in each metric. And I’m surprised how little improvement is needed to achieve this. We’re really not far off. 1 OR 2 CLASSY SIGNINGS WITH FINISHING ABILITY COULD MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE!..

The glaringly obvious outlier is the conversion %. Absolute tragedy was the goal kicking last year. Didn’t realise it was this bad until seeing the stats. If we converted just 1 more kick per game on average it would have put us in the top 4 for points scored.

Looking at this it seems the Tigers 9th place finish is pretty accurate if you go off stats alone.

TOP 4 TARGET

Post Contact Metres – 1st (Avg - 486.8) | Top 4 – 473.3

Possession – 5th (Avg – 50.5%) | Top 4 – 50.8%

All run metres – 5th (Avg – 1604.5) | Top 4 – 1614.2

Tries – 7th (AVG – 3.5) | Top 4 – 3.8

Tackle breaks – 8th (Avg – 31.4) | Top 4 – 33.5

Offloads – 8th (Avg – 9.8) | Top 4 – 11.9

Points – 9th (Avg – 19.8) | Top 4 – 21.2

Linebreaks – 12th (Avg – 3.3) | Top 4 – 4.2

Conversion % - 16th (Avg – 69.6%) | Top 4 – 80.9%

BOTTOM 4 TARGET 13-16

Missed Tackles – 14th (Avg - 25.9) | Target – 28.4

Penalties Conceded – 12th (Avg – 5.8) | Target – 5.8

Handling Errors – 9th (Avg – 8.9) | Target – 8.3

I have a feeling we will be hearing from AD and his management some time very soon. We are not coming across as desperate as we were for LM and we learnt a big lesson with how the media can portray us. I like how Madge is playing this, we’ve thrown him an offer and if he wants it or if souths pitch in then let’s table it up. AD definitely has talent, but the world won’t come to an end if we miss out on him. He needs us more than we need him atm.

This is the type of realistic assessment of our club that I like. We are the ones in the box seat. We have great opportunities available for quality players who are prepared to accept hard work and a fair wage. If you want to be overpaid or you don’t want to work hard than go to another club.

Sweet deal… where do I sign?!

Tigers backline without any rumored signings:

  1. Thompson
  2. Nofoaluma
  3. Momirovski
  4. Talau
  5. Jennings
  6. Marshall
  7. Brooks
    No pace, no fear factor. Only hope is they’re fitter & more familiar with combinations etc.

Now, compared to a few other squads backlines:

Slimey’s

  1. Gutherson
  2. Sivo
  3. Jennings
  4. Blake
  5. Ferguson
  6. Brown
  7. Princess Moses

Cowgirls:

  1. Holmes
  2. Feldt
  3. Fatty Marsters
  4. Opacic
  5. O’Neill
  6. Drinkwater (great advice)
  7. Morgan

Sea Birds:

  1. Trbojevic
  2. Taufua
  3. Parker
  4. Suli
  5. Garrick
  6. Walker
  7. Cherry-Ripe

Could go on but my point is that every team has a strike player in their backs bar the Tigers. Picking up BJ & AD would IMO give us that extra needed punch. I’m hoping management can strike a deal soon because otherwise I’m finding it hard to see where the points are gonna come from.
