Assuming no Bennett in 2019 I would lock up Maguire ASAP.
He is at least the equal of Cleary without the baggage or B.S.
Bennett is too unpredictable to count on going forward.

2011 v Warriors “highlights”.
Not much fun.

Scott Prince would have been handy in 2010/2011.

From memory in 2010 v the Roosters a Benji Marshall punch/scuffle with Mitchell Pearce in lead up reversed a Tigers try.
In 2011 v N.Z Farah & Marshall blew a slim lead with a poor last tackle option at end of the game. N.Z gained possession & mopped up a spilt bomb by Moltzen with Inu scoring the easiest match winning try in finals history!
Happy for Forum members to correct or expand on my recollection.
Bottom line the Tigers had a team good enough to make &/or win the G.F in 2010 & 2011.
Bit strange Benji & Robbie were still a key part of the Tigers roster in 2018 & are now contracted for next season.

Phil Gould has probably effectively scuttled the Tigers/Cleary era.

Coach Cleary contracted to Tigers 19/20…so can’t be in charge of Tigers player roster planning espec in 2020.

Gould has lost a lot of respect from many with his tactics.

Best for Tigers to squeeze Penrith for compensation & use money to sign ex Souths coach Michael Maguire.

Balmain leagues club gone in to liquidation today, can’t pay the 1.5 million they owe, so that ends that story

Any source re: liquidation news?

How about this question to Ivan “next season, would you like to coach the Tigers or the Panthers?”.
We all know what his answer would be.
Hard to keep the faith until Penrith name their next coach.
If he stays hope Ivan keeps clearing more deadwood.
Great farewell to Robbie & Benji in R26 v Souths would be great for all parties.

What a user name… Lol 😂

Yeah Magic Moltzen debuted five years after Benji & Robbie n 2008.
Go Robbie, Go Benji after R26 :slight_smile:

Ivan wants out ASAP. Nice knowing you, have a nice life.
Blood is thicker etc
We deserve better.
As long as snake Gould compensates set Ivan free & get a “hard edge” coach who will take no prisoners.
Also let’s clear even more deadwood starting with Benji & Robbie. They were champions, would be great to farewell them v Souths in last game.
