I love his passion. In the coaches box, during the press conference. I’m a massive fan.
I’m even rating his team selections. Picking on performance.
We are a much better team than last season. Don’t want to jinx us, but I think we can make the eight.
Thanks for being an awesome coach Madge.
For those that suggest we get Lichaa, he may not cost much however ,it would mean that he takes up a spot in the 30, So if we do get AD and JL, that leaves us no room to pick up anyone else. So if Stefano does come available this year we could not take him.
100%. I can’t believe people are even mentioning his name. I’d upgrade Simpkin way before getting Lichaa
I can’t believe I’m reading this…
The Tigers are in danger of losing the man many regard as the NRL’s most underrated player: utility back Corey Thompson.
Thompson is coming off contract in a few months and the Tigers have yet to present him with a formal offer for 2020.
Rival clubs have been circling Thompson’s manager Mario Tartak, who now has some decisions to make with his client.
“Corey loves the Tigers but he needs to look after his future, wherever that lies,” Tartak told Wide World of Sports.
“The Tigers are in no rush to move on him.
“Several coaches have told me they see him as a very underrated and he appeals to them because he won’t cost the earth. And his ability to play several positions in the backline is a huge plus in his favour.”
Corey has been one of our better players over the last two seasons, on a moderate salary and loves the club.
It’s a no brainer. Give him a 2 year contract
The Roosters and Tigers will be laughing at the end of this season, the clown failed to buy insurance, one year deal, wait for the season ending injury and he’ll have plenty of time to look and question the man in the mirror when the knock at the door fails to materialise.
JAC should be our priority.
Contract still not signed off on yet & hasn’t been approved by NRL, but what a gronk if these reports are correct. Risking his families future tells me he’s just a selfish little boy. His purported upgrade next year (in Souths’ favour apparently) is dependent on who they can shift to accommodate his highness - teammates who have been shopped around while on holiday & without their knowledge. Easts have been home for him since he was 16, they wanted to pay him $800,000 this year - instead he rinses them for $116,000 while he goes fishing - then agrees to a contract with the enemy, for $200,000 less then what Easts originally offered him, zero guarantees - you can’t make this up. Latrell could have set his young family up for life and then moved to Souths later in his career. All it takes is 1 injury and he’s yesterday’s news, crazy.
And to think he went to market to make “more” money for his family…it doesn’t add up
The Brisbane Broncos are on the verge of continuing their roster clean out by asking long-term captain Darius Boyd to retire at season’s end.
The dual premiership and former Origin fullback has born the brunt of widespread criticism this season after a handful of shocking performances, including after last Friday’s loss to the South Sydney Rabbitohs.
Boyd is still contracted with the Broncos for another two season on a rich $800,000 deal, however with Anthony Seibold arriving at the start of the year, the club is looking to reinvigorate its young roster.
Surely Boyd won’t be forgoing $1.6m…
How do we do the same with Packer?
I really hope we have a red hot go at trying to land Arrow. He is quality
The race to sign Jai Arrow will intensify this week after the Gold Coast gave their star forward permission to negotiate with rival clubs immediately.
NRL.com can reveal the Titans have put forward a lucrative four-year deal, believed to be around the $3 million mark, to keep the Queensland Origin representative beyond 2020.
However Arrow has told the Titans he wants to wait until he hits the open market on November 1 before making a decision.
In a bid to fast-track negotiations, the Titans have granted Arrow’s management permission to receive offers before November 1 from rival clubs for 2021 in the hope of sorting out their future sooner than originally expected.
