When I saw the possibility that this “deal” was going ahead my first thought was who is going to be our goal kicker, as Momirovski was pretty good last season- who else could take on that very important role
Doueihi will kick I would think with Mbye back up.
Marshall has leg problems.
Ok thanks Russell, I wasn’t aware that Doueihi could take on that role. Other than that I am pretty happy with the recruitment and direction the club has taken- I have finally renewed my membership for 2020
A few people have made good points about our juniors coming through, and building from the bottom up instead of signing superstars.
The flipside of this: the one club that everyone points to as a club that can sign stars, the Roosters, is the one club that HAS to, due to having bugger all of their own juniors.
ALL CLUBS should do this, then at least we are on the same level…whats wrong with that idea
Channel Seven’s Sunrise in their sport report this morning said LM soon to be a Rabbit on a 3 year deal. Whilst I want him at the Tigers I will be glad when it ends. If it does happen it will only make me loath Souths more.
I honestly can’t see how they can fit him in under the cap without shedding at least 1 player! Arrow was practically a swap for Sam, bar an extra 100k and I know Sutton retired also but Mitchell wanted big bikkies. Unless he’s changed his mind about the money and will play for Souths for way less than what both we and the Roosters offered. Nothing would surprise me with this guy.
Souths are a professionally run organisation that apparently have planned what needs to be done in order to sign Mitchell, and then executed that plan successfully. Whether it’s by moving on players or not who knows but by all reports they’ve got their man.
They probably have got him but I fail to see what we can do. I reckon Latrell is exactly what we need - i.e. a big fast rep quality player in the outside backs. If he plays fullback and does it well he can have a massive impact on a team. It could also turn into a disaster. On massive money there is a lot of risk around him.
Is it possible for this thread to be deleted altogether, as it’s pointless even discussing this bloke- he never was and never will be interested in coming to Wests Tigers (in my opinion)
Thanks and thoughts go out to all the firies out there battling these blazes, particularly the three injured around Bargo whilst protecting us this afternoon.
Two airlifted to hospital with severe burns and another transported with lesser injury.
The firies do a fantastic job…thank you
