Do we have any updates of Packer and whether or not he will be playing for us in 2020 or will he be offloaded ?

@avocadoontoast Ha! I haven’t been on in a while, listen I understand the cynicism after all you are a Tiges fan, lets hope we can be a consistent top 8 side. Hope will never leave your side !

@tig_prmz I think we are in a better position with everything to do with the Tigers. We have had our rock bottom with Teddy, Woodsy, Ivan & co leaving now with Madge locked in he is building our club with jnrs and the senior team. To be higher on the table than the Cows, Knights, Dragons and 1 point from 8th was a great season. I have faith that the next two/three years will see the top 8 duck finish up, we are starting to play like a top 4 side for 60% of the year

@avocadoontoast Wow big change of tune from you, didn’t you say with words to the effect of “he would never ever think about coming to the Tigers” hmmm Avo on toast, more like Humble Pie.

@Toolie_24 said in Lure Latrell....as a Fullback:

If we don’t land Moylan for next season, would it be a good ploy to chase Latrell with an offer to play fullback for 2021 ? he did play a few games for the Chooks there and it would only get him involved more and become more dangerous, I truly believe he wants to play in that position…and he’s a good goal kicker something we lack

There is no chance in the world, ever, that Latrell Mitchell would consider playing for us. Ever. Never Ever.

Looks like its not Avocado On Toast but Humble Pie for this forum member now

Its like drinking Coke No Sugar…its the equivalent to U14 A footy for the North Ryde Hawks its all a PC stunt and a way to build player numbers…and having Alana Fergerson and Simms as commentators pees me off as they have never played NRL or close too it just a PC stitch up by Ch9 whos once great telecast to RL is a shambles now

Hence why I said as a fullback, something he would never get to do at the Roosters

There is no chance he would come to us as fullback, CEO, or any other position. Players like Latrell Mitchell don’t come to the Wests Tigers. Sorry, but that’s a fact.

Wow talk about doom and gloom…If the Tiges keep improving as a team, then you never know money talks BS walks (Matterson, Cleary) Weren’t Souths in a worse position than us a few years back, lured Asatasi from the Dogs and Inglis from the Storm ?

I attended the game at Leichhardt and had tickets bought for me we decided to get seated tickets to which i didnt know the price, our tickets were on the grandstand terrace inbetween the 10m and tryline…they cost $50 each…no wonder crowds are down at these prices ridiculous

Try buying a premium seating ticket to any American sporting event and you will change your view… I attended a Basketball game in San Francisco in March tickets cost $us330 each

Why would i change my view ? This isnt America with 10 x our population. Comparing US sports to us is ridiculous, for starters the demand for Golden State Warriors games is massive you have the bay area with a huge population wanting to go to a 20k seat arena, there were 10k at the game at Leichhardt not much demand there.

The difference is Sydney doesn’t have the right to charge exorbitant prices, because we can’t fill our stadiums, Brisbane does. There’s no demand and yet they think they can charge ridiculous ticket prices, not to mention the price of food and drinks when you’re there (even at suburban grounds).

There just isn’t enough value in making the effort to go… TV coverage is too good, and when the atmosphere and lack of “event” at NRL games is all it competes with then the lounge chair wins every time lol. I hope they find a solution fast.

Agree Sco77y, it is a game started by blue collar Rugby players and was successful based on its working class traits, NRL and clubs have gotten greedy if you charge $35 grandstand $25 Terrace and $15 general admiss you’d get bigger crowds
