Tbh, i'm sure this won't be a very popular opinion but i hate hearing the ''brothers for life'' crap. How many other teams take it to that extent after they win comps. Sure winning a comp must cement some kind of bond, but at the end of the day they are still professionals just doing a job

Agree with you GNR..who are these "brothers for life" ? They are our worst players.

How is Sue Sironen Tedesco Simona Spence etc etc part of this brothers thing..they have only been there two minutes.
Must be so annoying for new players trying to break into the team when they have under performing big salary players supposedly guiding them looking like they don't care and playing crap.

you shouldn't give large extensions past the age of 30.it's a critical evaluation time in a players career.just handing out contracts like this is irresponsible roster management.

as usual upper management are failing us with their process.

Well Benji might be worth every cent to someone, but it certainly isn't Wests Tigers. I dare say he is worth every cent to whoever our opposition is each week.

Lawrence wants to save money, but doesn't want the Tigers to.
