@hsvjones said in Packer & Reynolds:

Do we go down this path ?? Harsh but might work

Advise both of them that we will not be using them at all next year regardless of what happens and will blood young players instead. Advise them they will not get the opportunity to show case there skills at all so clubs would be unlikely to pick them up the year after unless it’s min wage… I know it’s harsh but they are giving us nothing so say to there manager if you can find a club for a longer term deal we will pay a fair share of the first year…

Don’t get me wrong as its not there fault we paid overs for them and they derserve the money but could be an incentive. 🤷‍♂️

I get the sentiment and wish both would leave sooner rather than later but I think this would harm the club more than it would benefit it.

Also Sends the wrong message to current players and the ones we are trying to sign.

Welcome to the club. Hope he plays his part in helping our young pack grow.

Good luck to him, was a part of our 05 team so I wish him all the best.

He is doing well with the warriors team however, it’s one thing to come in halfway through a season as an interim coach with no real pressure or expectations and another to be a head coach at a club with pressure to achieve.

Contract up at the end of the year anyway? Only 4 games left. Hardly worth an announcement…

Oh could you imagine the media smashing again if we didn’t thank him for the huge 10 games he played.

10 games
Wow
Getting paid $400,000 a season
That works out to $120,000 per actual game played
That’s equivalent to $3,120,000 a season for 26 games

Now that’s value for money
But wait there is more
Packer and Reynolds
I dont even want to do the figures on those two

Had to pay for those Tattoos somehow

And the Camaro!

@hodgo said in Lara Pitt:

not trying to toot my own horn but i mentioned this was coming. I had it mentioned that there are some disgruntled dudes at the top. Its created a division in the squad with alot of the younger players silently backing madge. Its our higher profile dudes that are causing the issues.

It’s the higher profile duds that need to pull their collective heads in and start performing on the park. Nothing annoys me more than players who undermine the coach. This is what happens when players are paid more than they deserve.

It’s also no coincidence that the the highest paid players are the ones recruited by IC.

I say good on Madge for ruffling the precious little darlings feathers.

Soft. The whole playing group needs to take a good hard look at them selves.

I’m a Brooks fan and I concede that this year his form is down. Brooks is best when running but I think his running game is even better in broken play or 2nd phase play which we haven’t had much of this year.

Our pack needs an experienced leader, our back line needs some pace, we a need a full back that follows the play and is there when we make a break. We also need an organising half partner not a flashy Benji.

So its not Lukes fault, its everyone elses?

Not at all. His form is down and it shows what’s lacking in his game.

He alone is not the problem though is what I’m saying. I doubt there are many halves in today’s game that would take this team to a finals.

Look at the team stats from the Penrith game and tell me for if you think we win if Cleary was our half?

Maybe ask yourself where the Panthers would be right now with Brooks as their half.

Of course we win more games if Cleary was our half. Thats the damn point.

Halves determine the teams fortunes.

Been that way since Dally Messenger.

Who knows however, with the squad they have they would still be pretty close to the top of the ladder with Brooks at half.

I also agree that this year we would possibly have won more games with Cleary at half mostly because of his goal kicking. But no one is saying that Brooks is better than Cleary.

Imagine how good our side would have been with both Cleary and Brooks but until we complete the rest of the squad, we still wouldn’t win a premiership with them two alone.

Yes we would make the 8.
