We pinned our hopes on juniors 5 years ago in Brooks Moses Tedesco and Sironen and Simona. When you put juniors into a struggling team their progress is stunted. We have Cap space now, we need to buy quality so when this new batch of kids comes
through, they’re joining a solid side. Or well lose them like we did the last bunch.

Great call your spot on

That because our cap was shot, it’s not now.

We got rid of Matterson before November 1st so he didn’t count in the 2020 cap.

Even now it’s not as bad it was, there was a period of back ending deals killed us, could afford didley squat apart from our big name juniors, it was not intentional they had such a poor team around them, no mon no fun

Mole saying latrell camp keep changing its mind. This was posted an hour ago.

Just followed up with this…

OK… for those who keep asking…
Latrell WILL be at @SSFCRABBITOHS in 2020… just fine details of release from @sydneyroosters to be finalised.
Kid has had a tough time of it through all this and just wants to get out and play footy for his new club. https://t.co/sHxqwEpMYI

tough time??? bahahahahaha unless he’s fighting fires in Taree it seems all he’s done is mess people around and use the roosters money to have an extended holiday…wouldn’t know the meaning of the word

Had a chuckle at that too.

100 percent he is very immature and out of touch.

I think a meeting was set up but latrell didn’t turn up

That’s correct, but LM drove all the way to Coffs for dinner with Rusty… clearly LM had no interest in the WT…

Wow and people still want him here

Latrell deal was done today with Souths. Very reliable source 650k this year and 800k next year.

Pretty crap deal after all he went through.

This is true, but LM’s bad days are better than CT’s best days.

What nonsense ! I recall a one off test at the end of 2018 against the Kiwis in which LM opposed Joey Manu. It was a tight game. The Kiwis scored three tries and won the match.

For the first try Manu beat LM pointless and scored. For the second try LM couldn’t close down Manu and he put the winger over. For the third try LM, under no pressure dropped the ball on the half way line and the Kiwis went six tackles and scored.

After the match I was trying to remember when I last saw an Australian player singlehandedly lose a test for Australia.

LM has been underwhelming in representative matches. The difference between his best and worst performances is substantial. He is no Messiah !

Your opinion and its facts.

Latrell is a flop in the big games.

As we saw in origin and when he played for Oz.

He set up the winning try in this year gf.

@Newtown said in Alex Johnson set to join tigers:

Our current fullback is much better winger and fullback than Johnson. What a terrible waste of West Tigers of CAP money and Cap space. WEsts tigers have a huge bag of CAP money available and If Wests Tigers sign either or both Johnson and Gagai they will again be certainly seen as the fools’ of NRL.

He’s a good winger better than what tigers have.

Wasted a bit on wing I’d aim fullback or centre

As I have stated before , we pulled the offer off the table some time ago. Fans deserve to have players playing for the club that they love and want to Play for and will do anything for and we have 27 signed in the top 30 of them at the club at the moment with 3 more to go

He said as much in the Q&A with Webster. Some on here thought he was speaking in riddles, but to me, he was pretty clear…there is no offer for LM, unless he gets in touch with us…

We gave the bloke 2 offers and he tried to stall us so he could use our offer to go everywhere else except the Tigers…we were the anchor contract that he could bargain with. As others have already stated, he got his money and he didn’t sign…that’s quite telling in and of itself.

Pascoe and the others involved have been around the game long enough to know when they are being played. Make no mistake, this wasn’t a one man decision…it would have been discussed at length before making the decision to pull the offer.

Now…I’m very interested in how things will play out if Souths can’t stump up the cash he wants.

He’s literally knocked about $400k - $500k off his contract for 2020 by pursuing Souths, and it looks like a similar amount for 2021. $800k to $1 mill over 2 years is a big amount to leave on the table over a short career.

Perhaps we’re not done yet?

It appears he has been tempted by the carrot we dangled in front of him, then removed.
