If I get another Father’s Day mug with a golf ball inside I’m kicking them out lol

If you have little ones enjoy them …

Remember the days when you’d get home and the kids would run to the door …”daddy’s home “
Now they just look at you and think …
“ I wonder if the old bastard has a spare fifty in his pocket “

…Happy Father’s Day !!

The players have a fair dinkum go, the problem goes away, they put in half arsed efforts like the other day the noise will be deafening

I hope Madge puts a broom through the whole club …enough is enough !

Pascoe rates AJ. If latrell decides on Souths and AJ is made available Pascoe will sign him

Surely it should be who Madge rates not Pascoe

Be surprised how little the HC is involved in those decisions with new signings and cap management

That’s not even remotely close to the truth. Madge is directly involved & very selective on both new signings & re-signings. Gets advice on up & coming talent from scouts which he’s also closely involved with.

Every club differs. Madge doesn’t decide the numbers and terms.

He is consulted on value/worth & term of the deal. He’s hands on with roster management.

He literally has no say on value and worth. If he likes a player the club will attempt to get them.

How can a HEAD COACH not have not have any input on what a player is worth to his team & $$ on the cap.
1st you said he had next to nothing to do with recruitment.

We appreciate your input here Pom.

Just ignore Wokespoke and whatever ‘personality’ smoking gun is today. It is rather obvious he makes it up, contradicts himself literally every third post…you don’t need to waste time explaining yourself to him mate.

How many rugby league club clubs have any of you worked directly for. I’m at 4. I might know a thing or 2 about internal structure

Do you hand out flyers on game day ?

Well if the halves don’t perform this week surely Brooks will be dropped 🤬

Lawrence over Garner is a deadset stitch up

Good to see Reynolds Talau and cheeks get a run …packer as well !

Hopefully Jennings has applied for a gig at Bunnings…good riddance !

@Tiger_Steve said in Best post match I’ve seen from Michael McGuire:

Great press conference but this generation of players will complain he is too hard, he’s hurting their feelings, they’re doing their best etc etc. just look at titans. I hope our inept club back Maguire to the hilt and piss off any pee hearted player who is not going to rise to his standards.
PS - Farah’s arrogance tonight was disgraceful. I hope he never sees 1sts again.

Finish him on 299

It’s clear as day that Marsters is a bludger and isn’t on board in regards to Madge’s work ethic…
Bye bye Nuffie!

We have all the money but no one wants to come here.

I think we should temper this summation. There were very few off contract players this off season, the majority of players prefer to stay with their current club plus the Tigers need to be selective about their signings, not just grab anyone. Ever the optimist, I think our opportunities will come. We just need to be patient.

Fair, and it’s 100% frustration from my end.

But after Matterson (and letting go of Esan) we really needed a win, and so far it’s been disappointing. Luciano is a good signing don’t get me wrong, but we lack a game breaker and I was hoping we’d get one this off-season.

Still plenty of time to go.

My Biggest Frustration is the fact we released Matterson & Marsters without getting anything back or having replacements in place. I think if we played hardball we would of got something or held off until we had replacements but also understand why we did this.
I think we will regret the Marsters one as he was injured last year and him been fully fit will be back to his best…

We did not get nothing. We received full value of his contract plus 3-4 months of this yers salary which the club would be up for while negotiating a suitable release deal.
So on my maths that’s around +$500k.
Hardly nothing.

i think what he meant is that we released two of our starting first grade players and have been unable to use the money to strengthen our lineup. Leilua is a fine signing but he is not top line. Not meaning to be critical of the club but this offseason’s recruitment (to date) has been a failure.

Yes but the fat lady did not do her performance yet!

Can she play fullback or hooker

Hmmm…can’t seem To recall if I have ever seen a fat fullback but on the other hand…perhaps best left unsaid really.

I raise you 1x Tui Lolohea

I see your Tui and raise with

Sloppy.

Anyway Luke Brooks isnt our problem.

Fullback is.
Hooker too in 2020…

I think 2021 we’re looking good if we can sign a good fullback and some one to take over from Benji.

Meanwhile …

Hard to argue, these blokes have had way to many chances, and invariably go back to not putting in

It starts with NOT giving Marshall another year .
