Get a penalty in that last set of 6…

Markers were not square and from my seat the Rorters on 3 tackles never got back to their line…

Can someone explain…will watch the replay…

The refs know they can’t allow a Sunday arvo game to go into extra time. The channel 9 execs can’t afford for the news and 60 minutes to run late…

Liddle off with HIA

Hopefully can come back into the game.
I don’t see what godinet offers, too many flat passes, service not hitting the chest so slowing the momentum of the receiver, doesn’t run with any purpose and has a poor kicking game

Good insight into the club’s preseason.
Could have done without the segment with the lounge tho…

Looked like he was carrying an injury for most of the season too…
Good effort from a player that shows plenty of passion for the club.

NRL integrity unit probably paid off as well…

Poor Fergo won’t be paid anything by the time everyone gets their payoff…

All I’m hoping is Reynolds has a short kicking game and a better option than put a bomb up no matter where we are on the field.

The jury is out for mine whether the MacArthur region is really the rugby league powerhouse we are led to believe it is and also whether it is has the financial backing to sustain a club.

Agreed

I’m sure the club has done the sums and determined the current strategy based on a business case (albeit Wests Ashfield would be a big factor in wanting to remain inner west).

I would think that there would be a big commercial benefit to being in the more affluent areas.

Other inner city benefits include a more centralised training facility and that could be a benefit when negotiating with players.

I’m from the Balmain side and I’m not against a move to MacArthur but it would need to be based on sound evidence rather than just a gut feel.

Chicken or the egg scenario I know, but Campbelltown has not really got behind the Tigers to the point where the club had no choice but to move there.

And agreed, particularly on the part in bold.

I disagree. The area, in particularly Council have tried to embrace the club from the very begining. Offering facilities to set up HQ accross the road from the stadium where those apartments now are.
Council have contacted the club first to help run clinics but Wests want to get paid to turn up… the Clinics were then offered to Souths who came and did it for free sending coaches and players.
From memory Council also tried to get the club involved with the submission for the Centre of excellence in Campbelltown but the club completely ignored them and has since focused on their own submission.

Admittedly most of the above happend under Grant Mayer except the offering of facilities which happened back when the club was founded.
