Hey all, This year has been my 1st year of following NRL properly and i can say i have throughly enjoyed it, and now i am hooked for life for better or worse. In previous years i would just watch SOO with out knowing jack all . I stumbled across this great community thru a friend and i am enjoying being able to keep up with the latest banter.
I wish everyone the best over the Christmas Break :supporter: :sign:
Nice one TDB. You choose the right team to support! We’ll come good this year!
Enjoying your input.
I wrote this Nov 2017 Just sayin!
Date: November 2018
2018 NRL Table Completion:
Wests Tigers: Scrap into the 8, knocked out first play off.
Penrith Panthers: Finish 13th. (Nathan played his best year yet, in-spite of the ladder position)
Gus: G’day Ivan, mate I would like to catch up for a coffee you available anytime this week?
Ivan: Hi Gus, long time no talk. Yeah, I could make a coffee, what’s the occasion?
Gus: Just wanted to go over a few things you might be interested in.
Ivan: ok mate, let’s do it.
Ivan: Hey mate what’s happening?
Gus: Look, I’m gunna lay it all out there, getting rid of you was the biggest mistake of my career. As you know your boy is a super star and I have realised that without YOU we aren’t going to keep him regardless of the money offered. So, I thought I would explore other avenues to get Nathan to stay a Panther, we have built the team around him and need him with us going into the future.
Ivan: I assume you are referring to the write up in the press about me and Nathan being in the same team moving forward?
Ivan: So, what exactly have you brought me here for?
Gus: Well, As Nathans contract expires next year and yours the year after, I would like to offer you an opportunity to come back to the Panthers on a 4 year contract with the proviso that Nathan signs for the same amount of time. The current coach is taking us backwards and I have seen what you have done at the Tigers and it has shown me just how big a mistake getting rid of you was. I know you must have been peed off with how things ended but this is me making things right and giving you an opportunity to coach Nathan in a winning team. See out your contract at the Tigers and You have a gentleman’s agreement with Nathans Signature you will be running the Panthers in 2021.
