Dear Scott,

Aloha!

So far, it doesn’t seem like “thoughts and prayers” are working.

Do you have a Plan B to get us out of this Engadine Macca’s situation?

Maybe Packer was injured (extent unknown) but it was downplayed to try to move him on and free up some $$? That having failed, they’re being more upfront about season 2019 and giving some hope for a better year from Packer as a Tiger in 2020? …taken the time to get his body right etc?

IMO a fit, healthy, happy and consistent Russell Packer could be a big determinant in a better year for WT in 2020. Could be a good mentor and leader for our young and developing forwards.

Who cares if he doesn’t come to WT? In all seriousness, if the so-called marquee signing turned out to be JAC, then we are totally and utterly a basket case.

having a current blues and kangaroo winger coming to us would be a marquee signing. And he appears to have a personality that would ignite a dressing room I personally would rate that move highly.

But what I think a lot of people are more concerned about, and me personally being a Dad, is the welfare of his kids. That personally takes the emphasis off where the guy plays

I don’t care about his dressing room lighting personality. And, I don’t doubt his achievements since leaving the Tigers to join the Storm but, unless he can play fullback (and I don’t think his handling or defence are up to standard for it) then it is a watse of cash, IMO. I serously don’t think we become a top-four club by signing a fast winger with an infectious laugh. No, thanks.

Who’s Jonesy people are mentioning on here?

Is it Alan?? Most famous for his work at toilets on London tube stations?

Please let me know so I can sever all ties with the club and rugby league immediately.

Yeah true about Thurston I guess. Most things I say are wrong.

I was actually talking about off field skeletons in his closet…

Ah, I getcha.

How about Cody Walker at fullback? He has kicked 10/12 goals and played 17 games at fullback for the Rabbits. He seems to be down on confidence since SOO and the change of team and roll might suit him. I am not sure about his 1 on 1 defence but offers a lot in attack.

We need to recruit a specialist fullback. His defence is ordinary and fullback is no position for someone short of confidence.

His defence is atrocious - and if people think LM has an attitude problem!

This guy wrote the book.

I couldn’t agree more. Cody Walker is a prima donna. Not a team man at all. Please keep him away from WT.

Latrell would be a great addition to any roster. But most clubs cant operate like the Roosters- and fitting in a player like Latrell who wants big dollars limits where he can go. Its just not feasible for them to think that multiple clubs will be able to come up with million dollar contracts all at the same time just because Latrell is available. Players starting to out price themselves compared to what’s available in the cap. At some point something had to give.

Why can’t most clubs operate like the Roosters? What are you saying?

If Latrell is/was serious about accepting the offer from WT, he needs to boot his manager. How do we know that any additional contract requests were instigated by Latrell and not, for pure self interest, by his manager?

Wasn’t pascoe unfortunately. It was the new chair that had us splashed all over the media.

Hopefully he takes this as a lesson.

Yes, a good point for new chair to think about.
