Arrow is a solidi forward. We have enough of those but LL is a genuine gamebreaker and the type of strike forward we require. Arrow is not worth the money being suggested.

I think his value to Souths is different than to us. I would say that Uncle Wayne sees a real void in reliable forwards for Souths . Murray is amazing at the quick play the ball , but is a little lite , and with the Burgess bros gone , that pack could go from a strength to a weakness, especially if teams figure out how to limit Murray.
We on the other hand , have for a long time had reliable , honest forwards . A few will get you 100m most games , but not much else.
To us he’s just a very good front rower .
We needed , a wrecking ball or 2 . So the value for an unfit , leilua type , is much higher to us .
Because it’s seen as a deficiency in our system.
I believe this is why Arrow was considered a luxury to our management

Agree on the Grubbitohs pack. To add to that, it’s hard to think that Cook will be as effective playing off the weakened pack they presently have. I can’t see them having the consistent punch and quick play the balls (with the exception of Murray) that he is accustomed to. As you say, Luciano provides our pack with a different dimension in attack compared to the honest toilers we have. Our pack would also greatly benefit from either one of our young blokes (Mikaele/Stefano) or a yet to be purchased prop that can play in the style of a JWH enforcer type.

I don’t know why Arrow would trust Bennett

Bennett himself keeps who he wants to keep and lets go who he wants to let go

Bennett didn’t rate Arrow at Brisbane high enough for him to keep him …but now he does …

What happens when David Fifita arrives …oops sorry Jai …WT’s are interested

The reason Arrow is going to Souths is because of Crowe …his partner is a model and wants to live-in Sydney and Crowe is the draw not Bennett …Arrow just whipped and doing what will make his life uncomplicated off the field …obviously Bennett does not rate him .Read between the lines!

My only advice to you is the decision you have to make and that is a life style change , this is the most important thing for you moving forward . Booze / junk food / food that your now eating is not sustaining your energy levels though out the day . Excersise is good but no need to kill yourself doing it , stretching is a huge benefit Keeping the body supple as we age is an imperative .
Life style change is not easy , but I can assure you a new life of energy and vitality awaits , the one down side to a healthy diet is its expensive but so is booze and junk food a choice has to be made .
Good luck the end game will be a new man …,I know I did it !!

@Blocker1963 said in Wests Tigers keen to take Matt Moylan off Cronulla’s books:

Sydney Telegraph (Matt Moylan turns down Tigers to stay with Sharks) Post no longer required

Application and hard work should not be used for Moylan in the same sentence hence staying at the Sharks for the easy money …there goes my blow up punchable face !

Why would any Young and aspiring union player even bother trying to move to the elite level …the people running that code have destroyed it .

@Tiger78 said in Signing Suggestions & Rumours:

Hence why I said Happy that I would rather see us send the money elsewhere. Dylan Brown would be my pick for 5/8.+

In all seriousness the team needs a 5/8 in 2020 regardless of hamstring Reynolds … I would go very very hard for this kid ! Parra want him desperately so let it be our turn to set the price Parra will have to
Pay …

@Curaeus said in Signing Suggestions & Rumours:

What sort of coin would Moylan be on at the Sharks and are they likely to contribute if he goes to another club?

900k a year. Has two seasons remaining

The club could Re coup a large portion of this with the blow up Moylan punchable head ! The off-season got to love it the best off season for years …

@balmain-boy said in Signing Suggestions & Rumours:

So we’re meeting with Dylan Brown this week. Would be a handy signing for 2021 or maybe we can get parra to release him early! 🤣

Now this would make my Xmas a kid that can play and ready to fill Benjis shoes … but could you imagine the upheaval at Parra if the Tigers snared this young guy …
PRICELESS. Let it happen Santa !

From our friend The Mole this morning
TIGERS HUNGRY FOR SHARK
Now that the Tigers have pulled out of the race to sign Latrell Mitchell, they have ramped up their bid to sign Cronulla utility Matt

Moylan.
The Sharks are reportedly happy to let Moylan go after an injury-plagued season that saw him play just 11 games in 2019.
The Tigers have money to spend following Ryan Matterson’s departure and see Moylan as a valuable player given his ability to play almost anywhere in the backline

I could handle that if he was heavily subsidised.

I agree totally if he is heavily subsidised why not , no matter what you think the guy can play if he wants to ! But there’s the issue …

posted in Contracts read more

It is going to be interesting to see how the Storm handle this one … the well being of the individual is paramount especially when it is also impacting on extended family and children . Not an easy one for them .

If the club sign Moylan they should use him in there merchandise material … a blow up head of him as my misses would purchase one immediately as he has the most punchable head in league according to her!

Anyone have any news on whether the slimey grubs will release  Stefano Utoikamanu for 2020??

No news but if the young fellow has the potential to lose significant $ because he is on a development contract at the Eels, you would believe there would be etiquette to release him unless our offer can be matched for a year.

@pawsandclaws1 he is on about $70k atm right??

I read $60k which is a huge difference. I can’t fathom how the Eels can retain him unless our offer can be matched for a year.

I can. He has a contract and they are holding him to it. Any club can do it when someone under contract starts whinging about mental health issues, coaching their son, or not liking their current role.

Making an example of one person sends a message to others under contract that may be looking elsewhere, much the same as releasing the first whinging player makes others realise that they are free to look around.

The difference is he’s on an amateur contract. He can’t play nrl until 3/4 of the season is done. So they’re cutting his earning ability by 2/3 and denying him the chance to play first grade, something they can’t offer. That’s not how you treat young players.

If he were on an nrl contract or would be a bit different, as he could still offer the nrl side something. But he can’t. And they have no incentive to push him to be the best when they have other young junior rep props they can focus on instead.

This is why the Tigers have signed so many of there juniors … the way they are being treated by that grub of a club …

@teddy23 said in Josh Addo Carr wants out at Melbourne:

Melbourne are too smooth of operators to let JAC walk with no compensation, especially after releasing both Chambers and Scott with them already being short in the backline.

I’d happily offer them Momo, they may see the potential in him and he probably won’t get any game time if we do get JAC

Wouldn’t be so sure, Momo is a 6 who can handle centre, we could give them Jennings

And then watch Jennings score 54 tries in 13 games…Cheyse Blair syndrome…nuffie turned into grand final winning superstar

Just a slight exaggeration there, though he is certainly looking a d**n sight fitter than he was this past season. JAC would be a bonus and a big step up, but let’s hope that Jennings form will lift in line with his fitness.

Here’s the photo, i’m hoping he has a good year too.

I am sure that photo has photo shop all over it !
