its about winning the hearts and minds in the macarthur area and the wests tigers arent doing that because they are so focused on the inner west when the real battle is in the south west
Won’t they do that by focusing on the juniors and therefore families in the south west? rather than a state cup that nobody watches?
Get the kids playing in a Magpie Jersey with a Wests tigers emblem on the sleeve, give them free passes to the games, get the players into the schools and you watch the hearts and minds being won over.
The only hearts and minds that aren’t being won are a handful of selfish rusted on magpie supporters that can’t see a bigger picture or know what a sound business case is.
it really helps when the majority of games are played extremely close to the balmain supporter base.
disolve the wests tigers and see how long balmain last with out the magpies
word has it that penrith are sniffing around group 6
Is there a point to this? Clubs recruit players from all regions, it’s the way league operates these days.
the point is the magpies used to draw on group 6 to pick up players exclusively but now everyone but us is getting players from group 6
