This needs to be sorted ASAP for me as we are in the media again for the wrong reason and this has to be impacting our Brand…

Doing yourself a disservice Jonesey, believing everything you read in the paper. It could just as easily be a tactic from player managers to try and pressure the club into a rushed deal.

Stay strong

Mate I just hate all this negative press… Its not deserving considering we finished 9th last year with the team we had… Jees the Knights and Titans have been swapping to spoon for a few years and nothing is hardly said about them and swapping coaches etc…
I am looking forward to shutting these so called reporters down with a good season…

Titans fans don’t chase articles about their team. So doesn’t agitate the news cycle. Was on holidays up there and a local labeled their fans fickle.
The knights being a 1 team town get more positive press for advertising revenue in relation to the local team

Looks like he was set up to me
Did the camera set itself up and start recording by itself
Or did someone set the scene
Something also set Josh off
So what was it ?
No one knows but the two or 3 people in the room
I think 3 because someone filming and someone in bed
Anyway none of us should pass judgment just yet
Non of us know what actually happened

Regardless of a “set up” or “being recorded” do you think the behaviour is appropriate? Also you would think being recorded would of slowed him down a bit and just walk out of the room. But it didn’t.

If she didn’t voluntarily leave and he asked her at any point previous to the recording your point is null. He may be an NRL player but what she did would still be constituting provocation, please…

Apparently it was the house they shared. This incident was before the DV incident later on

Apparently - is that speculation

If you don’t put a name next to the numbers it makes for good reading too. Surprises a lot of people.

Do player agents have access to use during negotiations.
Who has been the biggest surprise in their numbers that you have done

Not via myself, can’t speak for everyone who does it. Clubs tend to keep the info close to their chests.

Biggest surprise? As in under value or over value?

Both. Just curious

Well if you **believe media numbers tigers hold 3 of the worst contracts ever (mbye,Reynolds,Packer) other clubs in recent times parker for manly is a undervalued player who rates highly Dylan Edwards is Hugh as a fullback as well If your going back a few years jordan rapana was always one who always out performed his value. Curtis rona another one. Actually If you didn’t have a name next to their numbers in 2015/16 you would of ranked them in the top 4 wingers in the game.

Has anyone ever done pilates.my wife wants me to go with her for a 10 week challenge. I’ve only been to local footy training. Tried weights when I was 20 but really didn’t like them

https://www.smh.com.au/sport/nrl/wests-tigers-meet-joey-leilua-prepare-to-offer-doueihi-a-deal-20200120-p53t3f.html

Wests Tigers have cranked up their recruitment drive by meeting Canberra giant Joey Leilua on Monday and completing the finer details on a contract they will offer Adam Doueihi in the next 48 hours.

Leilua met with club boss Justin Pascoe and coach Michael Maguire about swapping Canberra for Concord, despite having a year to run on his deal at the Green Machine.
Joey Leilua could be joining his younger brother Luciano at Wests Tigers this year.

The Tigers signed Joey’s younger brother Luciano for this season and are desperate to beef up their stocks in the outside backs.

Leilua, who stands to earn about $700,000 this season in his final year at Canberra, was already told he would not be offered a deal in 2021, and could do it tough to nail down his starting right-centre spot now Curtis Scott had arrived from Melbourne.

While the Tigers are yet to offer Leilua a deal, their pursuit of Doueihi is expected to get more serious in the coming days.

The Tigers have about $800,000 in their cap and can easily accommodate both this year.

South Sydney coach Wayne Bennett informed Doueihi last week he was free to pursue a starting fullback spot elsewhere, especially with Latrell Mitchell to be given first crack at No.1.

Doueihi was given his start in the NRL by former Souths coach Maguire and signed with the Rabbitohs at the time because of their lack of depth in the halves. The chance to be Benji Marshall’s long-term five-eighth understudy also has appeal.

Having the 190cm right-footed Doueihi and left-footed halfback Luke Brooks as the playmakers would seriously excite Tigers fans in future years.

Marshall, 35, next month, is held in such high regard at the club that Tigers officials are more than happy to entertain the idea of him playing on again should he feel physically and mentally fresh at the end of the season.

The Tigers have three spots to fill on their roster, and have not given up hope of luring teen prop Stefano Utoikamanu away from Parramatta a year early.

In Doueihi’s case, the big sticking point for any move will continue to be money, especially with the Lebanon international on a back-ended deal and collecting more than $500,000 this season, then over $600,000 next year.

Souths have already told Doueihi they are happy for him to see out the final two years, and they can accommodate him in their cap, but his best hope of playing could be off the bench.

Doueihi, a second cousin of dumped Wallabies coach Michael Cheika, had interest from the Waratahs before he signed his first NRL deal, but a return to the 15-man code was not on his radar.

"Rugby hasn’t been discussed as an option,’’ Doueihi’s agent Sam Ayoub said on Monday night.

In the space of a week or so, Joey has gone from 600k to 700k and WT from over 1M in cap to now 800k in cap 🧐

And yet, It also states that WT can afford both, so go figure.

Hedging their bets

If we are 6/2 after our first 8 games, would that validate our recruitment drive?

No, a finals spot would. Tigers have started well last couple years only to be found out later in the season.

Smoke, what does that say about the roster?

Depth. Essentially for 2 years tigers have had 2.5 mil sitting on the sidelines (reynolds,Packer,matulino,mcqueen) + Pascoe fine. Hard to compete when playing 3 mil disadvantage to other teams.

Matulino didn’t sit on the side line like the other 3

Been to 1 footy training session so far. Work and kids are hampering but keen to make it where I can as 112kg is heaviest I’ve been.
Was giving up footy but my son has signed up and want to play with me when he is old enough. He’s 14 atm. Figure it will be better to stay on the park until then.
