@avocadoontoast Agree but then if you got Capewell for the money Matterson is on and then spent the money you would have had to spend on upgrading Matterson - say another 200k or 300k on finding a better fullback

RE: Packer and Rochow feature in NRL Academic Team of the Year
Congratulations to Russell Packer - he has really shown how someone can turn their lif around and despite a hard year in footy he has continued to set himself up for the future
We need to start looking at signing this kid up for longer. He has shown that he has class and that he can bounce back from adversity. Just look at the Newcastle and Canterbury games and how he has moved forward in a short space of time. He may not turn out to be a superstar but he is the type of player you want around the club.
I actually think he mght turn out to be a superstar. He looked like he was class even in a much better side last night. Thier is a lack of centres at rep level in general and he kicks goals better and better. Think we might have a suprise star on our hands
RE: Signing Suggestions & Rumours
How do people feel about Jackson Hastings? A good aggressive player with some mongrel ( which we need) has just won Super Leagues Man of Steele…Could be just the mix we need in the halves with Brooksie.
Worth a look but just signed a big $$$ deal with Wigan. Then again, contracts really don’t mean much in the RL world these days.
His wigan contract has a get out clause at the end of 2020 would be a gr8 replacement for Benji imo
RE: Pascoe and madge pull an ivan
@Madge The Tigers had a ‘hot-line’ installed at the start of 2019 so that players etc could raise concerns independently with the club (I think).
Surprised they dont all have it - fairly standard in the corporate world
RE: Tiger troubles with player safety
Souths senior players did complain - but then look at them since he has left.
George Burgess from best prop in the game in 2014 to a NSW Cup player on hsi way out
Sam Burgess isnt the same player - filling his game with dirty plays just to survive
Greg retired drunk - perhaps it was him not the coaches
Madge works them hard - prob hard then most but it also wins comps with clubs that otherwise wouldn’t - some people don’t want to work that hard (me included) so no critcism but find another job
