I think LMs choice of words weren’t great when describing the WTs offer and I don’t think he meant it the way we all took it.

Hi Dad clarified the situation, check out the nrl.com article - it’s been quoted earlier in this thread (by me).

He said he’d regretted having taken just the first big offer and wanted to explore his options, as he had many thoughts on his next contract beyond just the money.

As others have said, he went on to note that he has high respect for Madge and the process dealing with Tigers.

It is just that some media outlets like Fox ran with “snubbed” and put their own spin on his original statement.

I have no dramas with the clarification. Anyway it’s all talk, just smash Souths when you meet them next, no need for the posturing beforehand, this isn’t a boxing match.

Yep, he said it all in his original press conference. That one part of the quote was taken out of context and used as a headline, generating its own false story. People needed to read/listen to the whole presser instead of reading the headline and blowing up. He might as well have said I would have regretted joining the Tigers because they suck, judging by some of the reactions.

This is a massive loss for us and I believe will have a roll on affect re recruitment… People can put any spin on it they like but this is highly embarrassing for WTs

I thought they handled it for the most part as best they could - tried everything to nab a superstar, nothing wrong with that. And did it very diplomatically, pulling the offer once things started looking shaky too. The only slightly embarrassing part was Hagipantelis coming out with statements that gave an impression that we thought we had him. Lesson learned I’m sure, and he’ll likely be more conservative in his responses next time.

No way you’d turn down a contract double the size. We’re either the worst destination imaginable, or they’re making up the rest of the contract somehow. Thinking it’s the latter. The difference was too great for that not to be happening in the background somewhere. Next minute Rusty sets him up with a Ferrari as a welcome gift.

I’m thinking it’s the former.

Lol, it could very well be.

Mole saying latrell camp keep changing its mind. This was posted an hour ago.

Just followed up with this…

OK… for those who keep asking…
Latrell WILL be at @SSFCRABBITOHS in 2020… just fine details of release from @sydneyroosters to be finalised.
Kid has had a tough time of it through all this and just wants to get out and play footy for his new club. https://t.co/sHxqwEpMYI

I don’t think this guy has any idea… Just throwing darts. You could just about say anything about the situation and there would be some probability of it happening.

@Tiger77 said in Tigers training and meet in brissy:

He’s in a home and can do the 100m in approximately 25 minutes.

At one point they were doing a drill in groups which involved stop start running clockwise through 4 different stops… Leilua was being lapped by the group behind. By far slowest/most unfit.

Well he can only get better, right? 😬

Is there a way to scroll down to the last post Ina thread on mobile yet? Without having to do it manually.

Was about to mention this @Kul Is this available now or does something need to be adjusted on the back end?

Soo New Smoking Gun what’s happened to your Lm Inside info!

Have I said Mitchell won’t sign? Souths would need to move gagai still to accomodate it. JAC if released WILL be at tigers.

I don’t understand the hate for AJ but it is a massive letdown after thinking for a while we were well within a shot for LM. If true LM is almost 100% not happening though, no?

I don’t see how we aren’t the only real option. He could stay at the Roosters for 2020 on half the amount of money, and possibly play reserve grade, then find another team for 2021. Or get an early release to us on double the money he is on now. You’d think it would only be a matter of time.
