They look better than this one I was told would be it …

You do realise that is the same jersey that got released today, only a kids/infant size…?

I think that’s the womens one, the V neck.

Do women’s jerseys have a v neck to help putting the jersey on? honest question, not trying to be weird. I thought the only difference was a more tapererd fit? Never paid much attention to the jerseys though

They need some specifications on this though. If a player is a regular first grader then yes these rules should apply. If there’s a youngster who isn’t getting a look in, like Blore for example, why shouldn’t they be allowed to leave their club by mutual consent and get a slight payrise in the process?

Ultimately this will see a lot more 2 year deals being signed.

A transfer system like the NBA or NHL might be better. You can trade players (who can also have non trade clauses in their contracts) but the salary remains the same. But you can bundle a package of players to trade for one higher value asset. Players know that an acceptable trade needs to be agreed before they can move, otherwise they see out their contract and then move in free agency, and their club gets no compensation.

@JC99 said in David Nofoaluma:

$450k is pretty reasonable… I thought he was on around that already

The 450k number comes from a clueless idiot who works for the telecrap, largely referencing an article from 4 years ago. What a Muppet

People seem to forget that Nof only agreed to stay last time because we paid him overs. Yes he’s passionate about the club but he’s also led by money, like most players. If he’d have stayed for less money than Parra offered then yes we could say his passion is bigger than his wallet…

Not just isn’t worth much. People talk as if other clubs don’t have players who make metres and take dirty hit ups. All those clubs in the finals Just wished they had Nof to improve them.

He’s trying to cash in on the guest good year if his career. Fair enough, bit in also glad we’re not taking the bait. He’ll be taking a pay cut if he stays. Someone else can become the heart and soul of the club

Interesting there’s some juniors here, mostly sg ball players yet seemingly none of our flegg boys are there. At least not pictured, other than Mavoni. Rizk, Dillon, Scolari, Lui etc… Are Flegg training separately or maybe just not training with the big boys on that day? Matheson Johns still around?
Only seen him play twice and he doesn’t quite look big enough but could the unnamed player be Lui?

@facepalmer said in New Faces at Training:

I’d say the middle one is Kelma Tuilagi.

Tuilagi hasn’t joined us yet due to Storm’s late finish.

O’Kane captained Balmain last year i believe? Funny how he looks much bigger playing for Joeys than he does in the Balmain jersey. Could be old footage vs new footage though.

Who’s the ranga??

We wouldn’t have released Josh if we didn’t have Joe or someone of a similar stature lined up. The way it worked out this time was very convenient for us and stopped things getting nasty. It usually doesn’t happen that conveniently.
If Joffa had a;ready signed elsewhere and there was a real gap in the market for decent props then a simple transfer fee wouldn’t have been enough to get a release as our squad as a whole would have been worse off. I have no doubt we would have forced Aloiai to be present yesterday if no replacement had yet been provided or sourced.

@cochise said in Balmain saved from brink of extinction with new leagues club to come:

I drove past the site today and there is signage up all over the place saying Balmain Leagues is returning and this Web address plastered everywhere.

https://www.balmainleagues.com/

Seems it will be Balmain branded and not Wests Tigers which I find a little disappointing.

Seems you’re a sensationalist looking for a gig with the telecrap.

Not a single mention of the Tigers yet you want to cause drama. It’s nothing but an ad for real estate.
