Just had a chat with my brother, his neighbour is on the coaching staff at parra,we were talking about this Stefano bloke…the reason parra aren’t releasing him is they are doing everything to get him to get out of the deal with us…even using Moses and Matterson to badmouth this club
Of course they are, scum tactics for a scum club
They are not a club which endears itself to others. We lament about not making the semis but how long since Parra last won a premiership? Also how many wooden spoons have they won in the last few years?
I feel like there’s zero downside to Doueihi? Doesnt work out at fullback we got a 5/8 for Benji? Worst case scenario we finally get some size on the wings.
I do worry about succession planning. Who is the candidate to replace Benji?
I am still stunned Doueihi is on 500K. There is NO way Souths are cap compliant if he’s on something that insane when they have Gagai, AJ, Walker, Reynolds etc etc etc
Also forgot they brought back Bryson Goodwin. Just collecting backs…
Who said Douehi is on 500 k
Article posted a few pages back. True or not, I don’t know, but that’s where that came from.
OK …yeah I highly doubt anyone would be paying 500 k for a fringe player …well maybe us …but not a real club
Give it a rest. Why do you bother to support the club?
Because I have a heavy investment …43 years …1st year since the WT’s I didn’t re join as a member
Its about time this club repaid ALL of us for our investments
And lastly it’s simple …don’t like my posts , put me on foe or don’t read them , no one stuck a gun to your head
Will do. I’ve been following magpies since 1965 and WT since inception, I too have a big emotional investment in the club. Anyhow I haven’t made foes before on forums but I think I’ll have to here. Cheers.
Funny how some think they have some God given right to tell others how to support their club
Kinda like when you imply that people are idiots because they consider the club to be making the right moves by doing better in the front office and slagging people for “accepting mediocrity?”
No not at all , as I always say it just surprises me how intelligent people (like yourself ) openly put up with this club’s ineptitude but will hang players who leave us out to dry
Its just hypocritical in my opinion …it’s never the clubs fault …ever
Yeah Yeah I know we will turn it round next year …
But Wests Tigers management are not reading or listening to any of your comments on this forum so slagging people for accepting mediocrity is not productive at all. If anything it is negative.
If JAC ends up at the Rorters … once again the NRL closes it eyes and says well done … only shows the NRL encourages the stronger teams to get stronger by cheating while the NRL pisses on the lower weaker clubs … !!
And encourages the weaker team/s to go to Perth.
Latrell Mitchell’s South Sydney switch set to force young gun Adam Doueihi out of Redfen

Latrell Mitchell’s arrival at Redfern is reportedly set to force talented youngster Adam Doueihi out of the club. The Sydney Morning Herald reports coach Wayne Bennett told the 21-year-old on Wednesday that he was free to negotiate with rival clubs despite having two years to run on his contract.
It is understood Bennett thinks highly of Doueihi but will not stand in his way should he seek an early release. Doueihi finished the 2019 season as Souths’ starting fullback having claimed the No.1 jersey from Alex Johnston in Round 17. But with Mitchell almost certain to take over the fullback duties, Doueihi would be battling with James Roberts, Dane Gagai and Johnston, Campbell Graham and Braidon Burns for starting spots in a jam-packed Rabbitohs backline.
A move to the Wests Tigers could be on the cards with Michael Maguire flushed with up to a million dollar to spend.The Tigers missed out on Mitchell and are in the market for a new fullback. However, they have reportedly been put off by Doueihi’s $500,000 price tag.
Souths do not need to offload players to be salary-cap compliant and would be unwilling to absorb any of his wages for a rival club.The Tigers currently have 27 spots filled in their NRL top 30 and will need to sign or promote two more players by March 1.They will likely keep one spot open until the June 30 deadline, when the market traditionally balloons with agitated players.
The wait-and-see strategy highlights a reluctance from the club to repeat past mistakes of hastily signing players on long-term deals. They have also been linked to their former winger Josh Addo-Carr.
He would be a great halves partner for Brooks in the 6 Jumper and can fill an immediate need at fullback this season. Make it happen Madge !!!
He would be a more than very handy acquisition. Come on Pascoe and Madge, put the hard word on Bennet and sign him for a reasonable price. It’s about time the club signed a player like Doehi.
