Maybe Packer can take on the role of pathways coach.

Or of maintaining the pathways around our new Centre Of Excellence. Stop people writing their initials in the freshly poured cement etc.

Challenge coins would be a good idea…

You’ll be suggesting a WT’s board game next

Wouldn’t that be laugh "Squad walking on eggshells …take 4 steps back "

That’d be a great idea…“you signed Braith Anasta, go back to start”.

Doesn’t get much harder than that, hopefully our tradition of early-season upsets rears its head again.

it’s his life and isn’t contracted to us. Cudos on him for giving it his all. I still think that he can add to a struggling team short on halves.

A struggling team short on halves?..that’s us!
Did the right thing by letting him go though. Onwards and upwards into the future.

I understand we have to move on,and i encompass the amalgamation,but their is no reason to diminish the past of two great clubs and the brilliant players who seem to be forgotten.Saintgeorge/Illawarrarra still talk of Gasnier,Raper and Langlands with pride ,why can,t we. Lets grow up and enjoy our history,two of the great clubs and joining as one.

St George Illawarra still hark back to the glory days of St George because they’d know in their heart of hearts that the “merged” …ahem takeover… teams’ one premiership in 2010 was a virtual gift from the NRL. The leg-ups they received en route to the title were immense and embarrassing.

AJ has all the qualities for a good 1 , if the Penrith kids not here AJ is my selection …Mbye offers nothing in that role he will be the 14 for the entire season.

Is catching bombs a good fullback quality…?

Of course so why is Mbye the preferred ?

Outstanding passing game, the best of all the FB options.

He’s pretty fast too. His weakness was under the high ball but there’s no reason that can’t be improved over the off-season.

Exactly, get him under Happys Fig Tree all off season. In the absence of DL, Mbye is clearly our best option at FB IMO.

No doubt about it. Mbye was great for us at fullback in 2018. If he can get back to anything like that form he’ll be an asset. He’s a good player, just overpaid (not his fault)

Somebody down repped this post as well. There is a Mbye hater out there. Maybe TT is on the forum?

People seem to think Mbye is a bludger and the worst player in the world and never tries on the field. If he was in $400k no one would bat an eyelid about his performances.

No i think that i would still question his performances if he was half the coin. Although not to the same intensity.

Problem is also with Mybe/Reynolds/Packer there just too difficult to off load even if we subsidize a couple if $100k.

He wants out i have heard it directly from his Manager and Titans was an option but that’s all gone quiet now.

At least we’ve only got one more season of Reynolds and Packer. Mbye has another two heard right? Hopefully he can find an early release, cause by 2022 I don’t see him in our top 13

In reality i really don’t rate Mybe but in the few games he played at fullback last season (2 if i recall) i thought these were his best games all season.

Like any player that plays fir the WT and represents us i would like them all to be playing at there best and representing us members with the same passion we have for the club.

JA - Very disappointing how publicly played out but with Marshall showing these other guys to use the press to there advantage what does one expect - does not always work???

His issue at fullback was his catching. Did good at everything else.

Apart from captaining. We need a new captain. One who leads and inspires.

@Russell said in Balmain Tigers best ever?:

Whoever picked that team has no idea, absolutely no idea.

Keith Barnes on the wing - has to be the joke of the century and how would Kerry Hemsley make the team and not Arthur Beetson?

Had a lot of good players in their list obviously and just shoved them anywhere to fit them in.

Not sure anybody will agree with me but FB would have to be Keith Barnes GK and captain. Unfortunately Gary Jack does not make my team.

Don’t think you can go past the Balmain team of the century to be honest (Below).

  1. Keith Barnes © 2. Larry Corowa 3. Charles “Chook” Fraser 4. Jim Craig 5. Arthur Patton 6. Pat Devery 7. Arthur Halloway 8. Steve Roach 9. Ben Elias 10. Arthur Beetson 11. Paul Sironen 12. Harry Bath 13. Wayne Pearce.
  2. Tom Burke 15. Tim Brasher 16. Peter Provan 17. Bob Boland

Garry Jack didn’t make the TOTC? He was a far better player than Brasher IMO.

@Harvey said in Joe Ofahengaue Next ??:

No need to force him to stay, but keep him until we get something we want in return from the party that enticed him to break his contract. Joe O is appreciated, but we could sign him regardless of Josh.

Make Manly pay otherwise it just keeps happening.

Not really…we get Joe O ‘and’ still would be stuck with another forward mowing lawns.

We release him, sign Joe O and thus still have money for other positions of need. That money may end up getting us someone better than a player Manly will discard.

Why not just keep him until we identify a player, otherwise there’s the risk we let him go and sign no one. We have salary cap left and he’s not on huge money.

He doesn’t want to be here though. Not good to have a flog like that moping around the club.
