Wasn’t there a bit of talk we’d signed or we’re about to sign a really good young backrower named Joshua Schuster?
Just read an article online which said that T-Rex and Schuster were originally named in Manly’s top 30 for next year, but we’re removed around the same time as the Fainu incident. Not sure why and the article didn’t really clarify it.
He’s been touted as a really good prospect so looks like we’ve missed out on him.
Please stay on topic and get back to discussing domestic violence issues
Well we have MG backing us as a good landing spot for Latrell.
First time I have ever heard Geyer talk sense. And… our new chairman is going to be hands on!! I’m impressed!
I find it interesting as the Chairman’s role is not traditionally a hands on role!
I think we really have the beginnings of a Politis. I liked Go - she was real and honest and sensible. But Lee is passionate as well. He’s a Tiger. It’s in his blood. He wants success for the same reasons we want it. I’m sold on him and I’m excited.
I loved two comments from Madge:
- He said it’s not the buildings that make the difference but the people inside them. Whilst he agreed our COE is a great thing, his point was employing the right people is where it’s at.
- Build a team with juniors that are invested in the community, club and jersey - my words but his sentiment. Great attitude about building club culture.
Madge gets it. We need him here for 10 years plus
I tend to stay away from player debates in the forum as it’s rare to see someone change a perspective based on a forum debate but i must say every time I have seen Brooks this year (that’s every game) he has contributed something - not always his best, not always game changing, but always something. He does talk, he does lead, he kicks short and long, usually to good effect; he defends very well consistently and runs the ball to the line. I believe his passing game to edge runners is still developing- if I get frustrated with him, it’s usually here. I think he throws too hard in some instances and just rolls through a set sequence rather than trying to create a gap or an extra man overlap.
I wouldn’t trade him for many to be honest because above all he’s a Tiger - loves the club. And rugby league is played best when blokes want to bleed for their jersey
I would prefer signing someone like aj brimson for cheap then a mitchell whos on 1.1 mill a year and then use the rest of our money on other positions like the forward pack
Im hate the word cheap when we talk about signings. Why is it our go to word?
Everyone’s a salary cap expert. Not as annoying as ‘‘If Madge can get player x firing’’ mind you. Man, that grates on me.
If you’re that upset I reckon you should talk to Madge. He’ll fix you up and get you firing
How about we take Douhie on full wage if south’s give us Gagai for Packer in a straight swap
Nobody wants Gagai except Queensland - a club plodder.
Tigers want Packer though.
Righto, I’m gonna put it out there:
Packer to have a huge year for Tigers, leading a young pack with aggression and intimidation.
