Something I discovered yesterday, Telstra has added a new reward, ‘Binge’ free for 3 months for Telstra customers. Binge is Foxtel’s attempt at Netflix. Also, the higher reward tier you’re on, the longer you get it for free, I.e Gold rewards member get it free for 12 months.

Don’t forget you can trial Kayo free for a fortnight too if you want to test your internet connection to see if it freezes/lags during games

As you are (currently) with Telstra, Kayo is great value for $15pm (lock it in at that price before you leave them). It’s similar to Netflix/Prime, very rarely does it freeze. It has become more robust over the past 12 months.
I actually find myself watching quite a bit of Kayo content on demand when the baby is keeping me up, E.g. NRL 360, the Fan, Matty John’s Podcast, Thur/Sun night footy show.

didnt Harry T try to do something a few years back with Meriton in relation to third party deals and the nrl ruled he couldnt be a tpa as he was too close or attached to the WT’s i think this was just after brydens took over sponsorship

Harry’s support of the tigers is weak. I’ll give him credit for providing sponsorship to the club when they couldn’t get any, but I don’t think the deals were ever big money and he’s let Balmain get merged, the leagues club fold and then Balmain die. Maybe he does stuff behind the scenes for us but it seems more that he likes to attract a lot of public attention for meagre offerings and doesn’t mind seeing his supposedly beloved club die. I’m not blaming him for Balmain’s death but he didn’t help when surely they were desperate and asking.

Mate you are shooting your mouth off, and do not know the story.

How many millions did you want him to tip in? He was the major sponsor
for Wests Tigers for many years.

He wanted to help out with the Leagues Club Upgrade,but Balmain did not
want him to be part of it. They instead chose to go with “Backdoor Benny”
and his associates and get totally rorted.

He was always really a “Balmain side of it” sponsor, they snubbed their
nose at him.

Personally I don’t blame him for snubbing them back.

However you go on casting black net on the Harry’s name.

Just on this subject… I thought there was some talk around last year that the Tigers were is some talks with a massive car company / dealer guy that was looking to join us or we were trying to sell us like Rooster did with Money bags… It was big news at the time & I think Pasco even mentioned this or had meetings. Maybe Backdoor Benny mentioned it as well on fox… Sorry just made me think about it with this talk.

Yep. Neville Crichton

Am I the only one not getting carried away with Blore? No doubt he has potential to be a star, however he’s still only played one NRL game. Calls for him to be made a future captain and locking him up for a further few years seem a bit premature, especially after he has come off 18 months of injuries.

Everything in moderation.

I recall Luke Brooks having a standout debut and now a faction of fans want to get rid of him.

Exactly. A strong debut is one thing, consistency is another. Let’s give him time to settle in. He could go down the same path of Woods, Aloiai or Twal or become another Lovett, Groat, or Buchanan.

@Roar_Power said in Signing Suggestions & Rumours:

According to POM, there are offers in front of three players. From memory they were a winger, centre and 2nd rower. Could be wrong but he provided an update a few days ago. August 3 cutoff not far away now either…

Correct, and they are all currently under contract, no point looking at the off-contract list. The second-rower in question can also play centre, so that should narrow the field.

Centre AND second row…?

No doubt today’s article is just the start of what’s to come. Whichever player takes Matterson out on Thur should be giving immortal status on this forum.

Maybe they were bowled over by their designs

Some of their stuff

Are these designs meant to look retro?

Why is there no countdown after the whistle has blown for a captain’s challenge like there is for a scrum packing or dropout?
It would make it more exciting and give teams less opportunity to replay the call internally
