Finally get rid of that ridiculous home game against Parra at bankwest. Prefer if it was at one of our other home grounds but will take this.
Question - With Paul Vaughn looking like joining the Dogs on the cheap side do we look at entering the party??
He would come cheap and it would not be long term but he would come into the 13 straight up. If we don’t get him at least it will make dogs pay more
I would have no problems getting him for 400-450k for 2 years and not for his leadership but more for his work he does on the field.
panga and Vaughan sounds like a culture disaster. just sign Norman and the dogs are set
Look up BJ’s stats if you want. We are MAD if we don’t give him the ball.
Only 14 games for these numbers.
Top in offloads
3 in tackle busts
6 in line breaks
9th for runs
8 for try assists
9 for tries
13 in missed tackles
11 in errors
Don’t let’s figures get in the way of a good winge though. Thats the weststigersforum way
Of course he was overpaid for what he brought to the club, similar to a handful of other players who are skewing our salary cap.
But McQueen is the one player in that bunch who I have no hard feelings towards for his performances. It takes a lot of courage to have come back at all after his neck surgery. I would be terrified of every single tackle if it was me. Good luck for England Chris, hopefully you can find some form over there and win some silverware.
McQueen had every right to negotiate the deal he got from the club. If we paid too much, that’s entirely on us. Hope he goes well in his next club and that he stays healthy.
He was playing ok when we signed him before he broke his neck. After that he was not the same.
He hasn’t shafted us, haven’t spoken bad of us. No winging publicly about playing reggies and seemed a positive kind of guy. That, plus his dislike for Matterson, makes him ok for me.
Good luck to him.
“Wests tigers fans tell players they are tired of not playing finals”
Anything said about who our coach will be.
Keen to know myself… Fingers crossed we know this week
The Pom has indicated that Madge would hold his coaching position.
All this Review is achieving is wasting valuable time in recruiting decent capable players… What a wierd and wasteful mob the Wests tigers organisation is.
Madge isn’t safe yet.
Wish the same for the board pascoe and hartigan. All time low for the club
With Hartigan and assistance from Sheens, our club is well placed to recruit new talent. IMO acquiring good young players on the cusp of the NRL is an excellent outcome. You only have to revisit the Laurie and Utoikamanu signings to realise the value they bring to our team. My fingers are crossed a new coach will bring an incremental improvement to our play generally but specifically our defence.
Yeah, I don’t know how people don’t see this.
its amazing that agents and players dont understand this
It feels like people think we only need 2 props in our squad. You need 6 or 7 props in a 30 man squad. The question especislly at 200k a year isnt whether your rather Woods over Mikelle or Twal or Stefano but would you rather Woods over what we git out of Packer or Amone this year or would get next year out of Amone or another NSW cup level prop next year.
My 2c is that when we had props out injured or suspended which you usally do that Woods would be great depth. He is also passionate, experienced and is known for being the first guy at training in the morning doing the extras - I remember John Morris saying he would arrive in the darkness and Woodsy would often be their already when no one else was. That is what a team like ours without enough leaders and without enough expeirence needs as a 6th prop. If he out performs the others and makes our nrl team then they need to work harder
that’s the best argument for woods have seen so far. 6th prop
A few nervous breakdowns will be had if Hastings isn’t 7 methinks.
Always thought of him as filling a ball playing lock role if not the 14 to take over from Mbye, though will be surprised if he isn’t playing in the halves to open the season due to Doueihi’s ACL. With Adam not meeting the expectations of many when playing there, I would now be unsurprised if Jackson remains there with Doueihi at centre.
This ideal of him playing lock is fantasy…
He can’t tackle and is slower than Twal.
Brooks fan by any chance?
Can you read by any chance (Or you just choose not to)? Let me break it down for you…
Hastings hasn’t been bought to the club to play a position he’s never played!!
- Hastings won’t be a 13 at this club next year - Or any other club anytime soon.
I hope that’s cleared my statement up for you…
Now, Now… Back to your halfback bashing, But keep a keen eye out,
There’ll be other posts from time to time outside that narrative…
Lol - you’re bagging a bloke before he has even played a game.
Can I break it down … he can’t tackle?
Never been known to be a poor tackler.
Slower than Twal?
Back to your Hastings bashing …
Played 90 odd First Grade games…
NEVER played in the middle…
We’ll put him there just for your argument
- See what you like about his tackling then…
I guess the hooker defends on the wing?
Really a downvote?
What part of that question was debatable. And not the sarcasm part.
WTF are you talking about…
This whole text has been about Hastings being bought to the club to play lock (Jersey 13)
I stated simply, more than once (so I thought) That Hastings isn’t a lock, hasn’t ever played lock, and hasn’t been bought to the club to play lock…
It seems everyone is actually arguing my exact point with me…
I’m confused, on one hand your saying he won’t play lock, then further in the conversation your asking if he’d make a good ball playing lock.
Either way, you said he has never played in the middle well half of his ‘47’ fg games he has played as a backup dummy half. He has played in the middle.
You’re certainly not on your own, That seems to be happening to everyone…
I got tired of repeating that Hastings isn’t coming to the club to play lock…
The latter is sarcasm - If you can’t beat them, Join them.
Hastings is coming to the club to become the highest paid KOE Cup player in the comp
Matterson would have to be up there
