Huth, absolute rubbish defence. Came out of the line sideways.
Poor drop ball from MBye, bad last kick by Benji.

Feel another drubbing coming along here.

Gives away a 7 tackle set, shocking kick

It’s going to be interesting if BJ and Tommy fire in the centers this week, what do you do with Mbye?
Liddle or Simpkins at 9 Mbye at 14.

Even if they don’t fire at centre, I say leave them there for a month, give them some time, bring in Liddle when fit, slowly moving MBye out. It’s what we envisage our future is, may as well continue working towards it now.

Triple M’s Brent Read has revealed Josh Reynolds will have an option to leave the Wests Tigers at season’s end.

Despite being contracted to the club in 2021, Reynolds has since come on the radar of several other clubs. (Basically ESL clubs are interested. )

Wow, I won’t get my hopes up. But a cynic would say that’s the best possible news at the best possible time.
Fingers and toes crossed, I’ll even cross my eyes for that one.

I hope we win, but from here on out it’s about seeing what this playing roster can offer. Keen to see young AJ have a crack, looking forward to seeing a repentant but fired up BJ, and intrigued as to how Brooks will go at 6. Hoping MBye can have a dig at 9, at least not be terrible, and interested to see who in the pack will stand up without Twal there. Aloiai looking at you.

I respect everyone’s view on Benji but with limited funds i can’t see we are in a position to sign a big name 6 or 7. In the absence of a signing, assuming we went with a Douehi, Mbye, Talau with Brooks, he’s not exactly a bad backup on a pretty low salary, which gives us better spending options for the remaining 3 spots after only $200k for Benji
If we could pick a young half, say like Chanel Harris Tevita from the Warriors, I would feel differently about hanging on to Benji. Maybe I just answered my own question, perhaps we need to take a punt on an up and comer that doesn’t cost the world

We will have our $337k cap fine to spend next year as well, Benji is part of the problem not part of the solution, we have to move on, keep him around the club in some capacity but not as a player

Yeah I had factored it in, regarding Benji, he is basically free with the veteran player allowance, pretty sure he’s the only option for that

The thing with Benji is that he is low cost and therefore not the problem or anywhere near it. If he isn’t the best option he won’t be picked so he isn’t holding anyone back.

We need to sign some quality players but it appears we have to get juniors and let them develop. An aging cheap half can slot into the team.

Anyway if Madge has a better option he will take it.

But that’s just it. Benji being on a low cost salary is not the issue, us having no one better in that role is the issue.

What a shame they are only paying them $27.50, a $50 Bunnings voucher and a pie and a coke under the Cap a week…

Wow 3 million
I can’t get those players under 3million.
According to the rich list.
Boyd $780
Crichton $750
Radley $500
J Moz $300
Hargreaves $700
$3,030 alone.
Not included is D Tupou and S Verrills and
B Moz…

Interesting.
If only the NRL could be a bit better at putting 2 and 2 together.

Some of those knobheads’ wages would be massively topped up with 3rd party deals yet the NRL released not that long ago that the Roosters TPA’s were a measly total of 100k or thereabouts from memory.
Something most definitely smells around the Roosters version of the salary cap.

I remember when Angus Crichton left Souths for Roosters, he was being lauded as a million dollar a year player. Now it’s $750k? I’m sure when he leaves it’ll be more like $400k, then opening up the million space again for a new recruit.

Anyone reckon the warriors players have any questions to be answered @ the judiciary? the Hiku crusher tackle was ugly. Didn’t even get put on report. Of course if it was a tigers player they’d be facing a murder charge

He was charged and received zero weeks.

I only saw it once, but it looked similar to me to the one they pinged Packer for. And Packer got less than a week for his, it was his carry-overs that worked against him.

I’ve given up on the judiciary ever since that Penriff game where they knocked out three of us and nothing was said.

They weren’t at all similar. Hiku did his very best to destroy the neck on two occasions in one tackle. Packers arm brushed and may have messed up the part in his opponents hair.

And the actions of the two players got the same sentencing put on them? Sounds typical.

Rumours are Sharks are looking at Tamou from Penrith. He would certainly do a job for us in adding some experience to our forwards, surely we have a red hot crack at him, offering a bit more than Sharks. There isn’t many others out there that fit that description.
