Sometimes those boofhead mates stumble onto something
Or sometimes a Dad of a player thanks you for showing so much support to their son
Sometimes boofheads get lucky
I think the issue is more that some of the posts are not qualifying the quality of the information at all, just making proclamations that things will happen. If I said, “Joe Slob who holds up one end of the bar at the local pub told me that Latrell Mitchell was going to stay with the Roosters because he scried the dregs of his 27th schooner of the day and they told him so” then it would be a little different to me just saying, “Latrell Mitchell is going to stay with the Roosters”.
would it be possible for the tigers to chase Val Holmes?
Although i reckon LM is better.
could we chase both?
I don’t really rate Holmes. He’s a decent winger but that’s pretty much it. $1m for him is obscene.
He went ballistic at the back end of 2018 at fullback. In 12 games he scored 13 tries, had 9 try assists and 52 tackle breaks. He was one of the form players in the game for that (admittedly brief) period. Query whether he’ll be able to go close to replicating that after his time out of the game and different training regime…
Roosters have re-signed JWH. Guessing they know they have some cash freed up for next year. Also maybe trying to give their fans some good news ahead of some less good.
JWH? But he’s over the hill and crap and the Roosters know when to keep them and when to let them go and he’d be a typical Tigers signing and we’d be played for patsies again…and so on.
It hard as a Wests Tigers fan, especially this year. We thought we had DWZ, couldn’t free up the money, we couldn’t get Mannah over the line but who cares. I am impatient. The club i am worried about most is Souths, if they get a salary cap concession for S. Burgess, they have the money and fullback spot. I know Rooster said they wouldn’t release him to Souths but he could still sign there for 2021. Souths could maybe offer a player as compensation and an Adam Douhi
Mannah decided that the risk of loosing his ambasidorial role with the Eels wasn’t worth a short stint with the Tigers.
Nothing to.do.with us…
Mannah would’ve been handy. He finished the season in beast mode in State Cup, averaging 31 tackles and 162 metres per game while offloading, breaking tackles and scoring a few tries. He wasn’t a spent force at all.
Good news, though I think Momorovski is a better option to fill the other centre than Mbye
Depending on how they go in pre season I’d have Mbye and Momirovski both ahead of Talau. He’s only had one game, see how he goes in reggies where hopefully his form demands selection.
As for the narritive that our forwards are lacking. Yes we could use a couple of players but i dont think its as bad as some are making out.
We have these guys who will be in the 17 somewhere -
Michael Chee Kam
Thats the start of a very solid pack right there!
And we have these guys who are in the mix depending on form -
Go ahead and spend the million on Mitchell, we will be ok!
Absolutely. You don’t pass up on 22 year old dual premiership winning try scoring machines who have also represented country and state, ESPECIALLY when you’re in deficit in both positions they are extremely capable of filling.
We have a bunch of coin available at the end of next year, spend it on the quality forwards that come onto the market.
Well you will be happy then …late last night I got a message from an ex sponsor of the Cows …they have decided they want Holmes
About 50 posters too late…thanks scoop
Well this scoop will be close to the mark …if this bloke doesn’t know something going on in Townsville it isn’t worth knowing
Yes well in this case the big “scoop” could have come from reading numerous articles published yesterday to the same effect…
