Pascoe legal team is hoping to have the ban lifted to three months only the Tigers believe they are being made a example of due to all the bad press with players and salary cap rorting.
It really does suck when one club in particular that constantly gets the best draw, has a smorgasbord of third party agreements and is always rorting the cap , this is how they do it the sponsors take the players to play golf on each hole they have bets of around 20 to 50k the players never loose the hole being played with sponsors coughing up the cash to the players.
From time to time I get some solid mail on the tigers so here it is.
The deal with Penrith regarding Cleary is just about a done deal , he will not be at the Tigers for 2019.
The Tigers playing group want Bennet but the Broncos will not release him unless they get Seibold make no mistake the Broncos want Seibold and will release Bennet on the proviso Seilbold is at the Broncos for 2019.
If this does not happen Madge will be coach of the Tigers for 2019 so either way it will be an upgrade on Cleary and a win for the Tigers.
I have heard this rumour by one person that is involved with the rorters and one that is involved with another leading NRL club.
Ivan Cleary and son are being heavily pursued by the Roosters this will be Uncle Nics parting gift to the Rorters before he steps aside what worries me is what Uncle Nic wants he gets and the offer is too good to refuse.
Taylor was on the phone straight away to the board members and put O’Neill in , JT hated the fact O’Neill was employed to look over him and was watching him like a hawk regardless what ever O’ Neill did was a sackable offence , he did seek legal advice but was told you don’t have leg to stand on and it’s in your best interests to resign.
The five Wests board members love Taylor and want to extend his contract now , but the other side of the board want to see how he goes next year and make a decision half way through the season.
As for Idris he has not signed yet , should he sign this will leave no money for ET but the club is hoping to move Rankin on which will hopefully leave enough money to sign ET.
Remember a week is long time in League and things change by the day……
Will be interesting considering a fair few players in the team are worried he will over play his hand and try and control everything.
Also the players are pissed off with Sironen,they are labelling him as being soft I personally think it’s a make or break year for Siro Jnr…
If Taylor sticks to his word and let’s Moses and Brooks play what’s in front of them and we start winning games I’m pretty confident they will stay.
It’s not all about the money they want to play for a successful club and play semi final football.
Hopefully Robbie moves on next year to ESL and that will free up fair bit of cap space.
