A strange couple of weeks…people couldn’t wait for Huth to pack his bags for another club quick enough, now you want to relegate Twal from lock for him!

Lee handled it perfectly

No he didn’t, he should have just shut up and said nothing.

I disagree. It’s good to see someone from the club come out and condone Cleary’s actions, especially when the majority of the media have painted Cleary’s gesture as ‘Theatre’ or in response to one fan who was giving it to him when we all know every WT supporter was his intended recipient.
Cleary took advantage of a vulnerable supporter base who for years had faced disappointment after disappointment. He was our great white hope whose vision many of us bought into before he spat us out.
His departure cut deep and I and many others, perhaps yourselves will never forgive him for what he did to our club hence why something needed to be said.

I can’t stand Cleary, but what did the comments from Lee do that was beneficial?

It’s an acknowledgement from the club to the supporter base they too disprove of Cleary’s actions. It also provides a different perspective on his actions rather than the ‘entertaining’ angle the media are running.

Has anyone else read this article, what game was this hack watching!

https://www.news.com.au/sport/nrl/joey-leilua-savaged-after-horrific-dog-shot-on-panthers-dylan-edwards/news-story/a68be97b630d0779c148d4158f78b3c4

Some gems from the article:

"The disgusting act came after his brother copped a high tackle from Panthers hooker Api Koroisau — there were initial concerns Luciano Leilua suffered a fractured jaw, and a penalty try was awarded.

But Joey was unable to control his emotions, giving away several penalties in the second half before his eventual sin-binning."

Besides the penalty try, nothing you have quoted him as saying is incorrect.

So he gave away several penalties did he?

At least one. Seems you want to nitpick the article. The overall message was he carried on like a grub all game, which he did

Hardly nit picking. I’m not pointing out typos or grammatical errors, I’m calling out the journalist’s (and editor’s) reporting of facts which: incorrectly reported on a penalty try in one paragraph and exaggerated the number of penalties given away by a player on the very next paragraph.
The irony of being called a nit picker by the biggest one on this forum…

@GNR4LIFE said in Doueihi enjoying sharpened focus:

Do they actually pay people to make different headlines each week and come at things from different angles? What a gig

They clearly don’t pay someone to edit their articles.

This:

"Madge and us as a playing group are sick of us, as a club, losing every second match and winning every now and then. It’s time for change for us now — we’ve built a good squad and there’s a good squad here.

Should have been this:

“Madge and the playing group are sick of losing every second match and winning every now and then. It’s time for us to change — we’ve built a good squad here”.

@Furious1 said in Signing Suggestions & Rumours:

Ive said it before and will again. If Cam Smith plays another year, there is no reason Grants loan couldn’t be extended another season. I know Simpkin is unproven at this stage, but when we signed him, there was a lot of noise about the potential and how good he could be. Personally i’d like to find out.

We wouldn’t have to extend it if he activates his get out clause.
Simpkin does look like a great fall back option however if we could only move forward with one, I’d choose Grant. Too many promising prospects never eventuate, and a bird in the hand…

It’s a pretty low act considering the circumstances this season.
Isn’t Nathan Brown an assistant (saw him in the coaches box during the trial). He has form in turning clubs around
