How's that working for the Cowgirls..?
Thurston hung around for one year too many ...he’s baked !

2017 they were awesome .

Wait on weren't you saying Cleary having Maloney helps..can he come too..?
What I’m saying is we need a marquee signing then the rest will come .
Wether it be a half , forwards or whatever.
Remember when Souffs were a basket case and they lured Inglis ?
Could not agree more Hobbo, Souths actually started to look a better proposition when they went all in on Asotasi, you need the first big signing, then the rest will come.
Players will come to play with an origin winning halfback, at the moment we don't have any good lures to attract quality, Mbye was a mid season right time right spot signing, he is our lure at the moment I think.

Being a bottom feeder club it's near impossible to be able to recruit top tier players. Mbye, Reynolds, Packer and Mats I believe are just a tad below top tier but are still pretty damn good signings for where we were as a club. We aren't going to sign players like Cronk, Tedesco, Crichton like the Rorters did in a 12 month period but hopefully in the near future with a few top 8 finishes players will want to come to us
And yet somehow bottom placed Parramatta snared Blake Ferguson! I hear this being said about us all the time, yet so often the teams that are consistently below us on the ladder don't seem to have any trouble attracting the top players. Newcastle won the spoon 3 years in a row, but still managed to sign Mitchell Pearce & Kaylyn Ponga!
Because our recruitment strategy sux. Plain and simple. We are never, I repeat, never in the market for top line players.
Moses Mbye..?
Granted - I wrote in another thread this was the exception to the rule.

Question: are you satisfied our recruitment is all it should be?

Imagine having a first class roster and having to only turnover 1-2 players a year ....

We have not shown any purchases yet , but are we in negotiation with multiple players , nobody knows what we are doing or who we may be trying to get , time will tell and it will be based on Nathen Cleary coming to the Tigers I think , we could be holding out for 12 months and then bring in 5 or 6 solid player purchase ,,Clearly and others

I hope you’re right Andrew but please don’t think me negative when I think that Cleary will resign with Penrith and we’ll end up signing a whole bunch of ISP hopefuls or rejects

I just read that note on another forum about the Knights being told not to waste time and money chasing TPJ because he'd already signed with the Broncos but it wouldn't be announced because the club needed to move players on.

Our issue is we haven't been able to rely on juniors coming through like we have done in the past. I am not having a go at Campbelltown but the lack of quality juniors coming out of that region must be a huge concern. The location of the COE at Concord really does highlight where the club believes its future operations will be from.

........and everybody pull up stumps for a move to Perth. Except we'd probably stuff that up and end up on Rottnest Id.

Speaking with a former international who is employed with an NRL club, he believes the Tigers are very active in the market but cut off discussions when they exceed market value, he said he can't believe the difference in the club in 2 years & said if all clubs operated this way players wouldn't be paid overs & there would be less shopping around of contracted players.

Take it easy.

Ivan is doing wonders.

Lets not forget what he walked into. Before he came into the club got rid of marshall and farah. Got balin in who played 1 game and banked on mith moses.

Tedesco, mitch moses and woods all left the club others also jumping ship. Club loosing its culture.

In 1 season he is getting our culture back on track a muture farah and marshall are back at the club and brett hodgson back coaching. We are winning games this year.

I agree past operations and no clue but ivan knows what it takes.

You build the culture first and make the club a respectable place again and the players will follow.

Will we become the roosters i hope not I'd rather follow a club thats built on more than money.

Id rather watch a esan masters develop than buy the best player on the market. This is a possability again under ivan he just needs time and patience.


Fans can help buy not wanting to throw him under the bus when we are losing.
