@Rparto:

Has today re signed for another 2 years.

Where did you get this info ? Nothing on the Wests Tigers Official Site .
i think we signed him for 2 years from the Panthers didn’t we ? So another 2 years would mean till the end of 2018 , or have i got this wrong?

Unfortunately can’t give away where it comes from FT, only that it’s from within the club. An announcement is expected shortly.
Was signed on a 1 year deal initially.
Also working on a deal for Simona

Any word on any signings outside the club??

I thing we have been pretty patient.

Nothing I know of as yet, although keeping my ear on it LT
I’m as keen anyone to know what’s happening for next year.

We’re also in a situation where we’re paying back a loan to the NRL so I can see why the club is taking the guaranteed dollars from ANZ rather than potentially spending money and making a loss by playing at Leichardt to have it paid back.
Also with the club looking at taking their facilities away from Concord I have no problem with them making the most of their money to use to improve and upgrade their next facility and training bases to bring it up to NRL Standard and if that results in improved on field performance then so be it, hopefully improved on field success generates more income the club can use to cover costs of playing out of LO and CS.
I love going to both LO and CS and hopefully in the future the club finds a way to play out of both as much as possible, until then there’s no room for sentiment in business and your P + L.

@white:

I was at training today and firstly was astounded in how friendly and hospitable the players were. They spoke politely to my little boy. Marty taupau took time out especially to engage with myself. Just want to thank the tigers in recognising supporters. I honestly believe there is aspecial bond with this team

Nice post white.
I was also at Concord recently and Marty Taupau had just bought a jersey out of his own pocket for a fan who’d asked for a signed jersey from the players. Said he didn’t want to take money from the club and was going to deliver it to the fan in person. Champion

Hodgson will be a loss for Canberra, he’s been good for them but don’t see him playing after last week.

Hopefully our boys won’t fall into the same trap as Parra last weekend by assuming being at a home ground will be enough, still have to play good footy to win and hopefully the home crowd and atmosphere will help us get the 2 points.

Some well put and thought out answers so far in this thread.

I’ve been impressed with the number of players who seem to have improved for various reasons, Sironen, Galloway, Lawrence, Simona, Sue are all performing to a higher level that previous years and Lovett, Santi have improved with still having a long way to go.

I’d like to see Ava playing longer minutes than he does, is a better player and offers lot more than Buchanan or the 15-20 minutes he’s being playing lately.

Great to see our injuries ( touch wood ) down and hopefully this continues well into the season, our defence has improved and with experience and maturity, looking forward to JT giving the 6,7 more freedom to play to what’s in front of them football within the structures in place.

Keithy has been consistent week in week out this season, stats are there to back it up and he sets a good platform for us early, aside from 1 mistake against the dogs he’s been playing very well.
Goes to show how much injuries affected his performances that last few years, looking forward to seeing his good form continue and he has an injury free run. Can definitely see him playing in the City side at least.

I’d like to see the" conventional or traditional round the legs, aim for ball type " tackles rewarded as a way of removing the wrestle. Reward defenders who make these types by giving them more time to release from the tackle and get to marker.
Video referee can only be used via captains challenge, max 2 per game per side. Put more emphasis on referees and touch judges to do what they’re meant to do.

Souths annoy me for the fact they’ve flogged the whole Glory Glory thing from Manchester United, no originality there yet the way they’ve taken the GG notion and the song they sing to it as if its their own, makes me hate them more. I respect the fans who were marching through Sydney when they were being kicked out and were there when they were getting towelled each week, not the ones who have come out lately since they’ve had something to cheer about and claim their Souths through and through, probably is the same at each club but just seems to be more prevalent with Souths.
