@gallagher said in Does this club need the spoon:

I’ve already lived through Wests getting spoons, lots of times. It doesn’t change things though. I think the club needs to face the fact it doesn’t belong at the elite level.

NO! That is not right, imo.
It’s not where you are on the ladder, it’s always how you fight!
History tells me that Easts were spooners lots of times, as were Parra etc etc.
Footy is cyclical.
Players are really the same as you and me - nobody likes losing.
We have to stay strong and earn the good times.

Would the Huth march into any other NRL team’s first 13?

I think the refs will be awake to Gutherson now.

Er, champion @twentyforty - this is a soccer thread. Should this Gutherson post be in another thread?

The summer transfer window will run for 10 weeks from July 27 and close at 11pm on October 5.
Lots of speculation, expectation and exasperation to come!

@JoshColeman99 said in Indigenous round logo:

Indigenous round is great and our jerseys always look the best because of the colour palette we have.

We must be the only team without any indigenous players though, Corey Thompson was our only one I think

Thought mbye was indigenous, could be wrong though

I’m pretty sure he’s African but not 100%.

Extract from Wikipedia:

Mbye was born in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, and is of Gambian descent through his father, making him one of the few players in the NRL to be of African descent

I went to see an acupuncturist.
When I got home my voodoo doll was dead.

@JD-Tiger said in Indigenous round logo:

Seriously, I hope they don’t use Latrell Dogshot Mitchell to be the leading representation of this Indigenous week again. Unless they want it to be associated with arrogance, unfair play, self-entitlement, poor sportsmanship, and a complete disregard for the well-being of anyone who doesn’t fit in with his notion of family.

Personally, I feel they can do better.

Funny that Trell’s judiciary penalty was only 2 weeks - back just in time for Indigenous round.

Is it just me that thinks something is fishy in this Suaali kid is going to knock back a million a year from Rugby to accept half a million a year to play with the Rabbits

Who on this forum would accept a half million pay cut to play for the Rabbits

Not me

Russell Crowe flew the family for a meet and greet, the rest they say is history, he is souths uncle Nick, and the NRL will even go as far as to bend the rules for both clubs, level playing field they say

They NEVER return from Nana Glen without a contract significantly less than what the market is offering…the Gladiator must have some real charm!!

Rustys Nana Glen compound sounds like the Neverland Ranch to me.

30 Odd Foot of Grunts meets Thriller.

@walter said in Wests Tigers sign Asu Kepaoa till 2023:

That’s true but has anyone seen him play or we going off highlights cause everyone’s putting him in the side without seeing him play

We had him lined up on a 3 year deal from next year so you would have to assume the club has taken a good hard look at him to offer him 3 years.

This has been posted before but read the section on how the Roosters recruit to fit the team. It is reassuring in terms of Kepaoa’s future.

Thanks champion @pawsandclaws1 - I also loved the article.
Our club is certainly aiming higher.
Previous recruitment processes have failed - but club expectations and professionalism appears to be coming together.
