Heard a rumour that the Cleary to Penrith saga cost us Curtis Rona. . . . . .
I think if Curtis was ever going to come it would have been if he was off the radar for the Wallabies and if Cleary was in charge. And not at an insignificant dollars as he is on good coin with the Waratahs. Bridge too far on that one and getting on in years.

I think the worrying thing for me is if we were in line to sign any player of decent worth there would be some sort of smoke, There always is. Even the Matterson signing was talked about a fair bit in the lead up. We have been linked to no one, which leads me to believe the mediocracy bus will roll on.
The laughing stock of Australian sport.
Now tell me how any of this is WT doing for them to be the the laughing stock.
Really?
Because we don't recruit well, both administratively or player wise (Pascoe aside), we have made 3 finals in 19yrs, we have 5 home grounds and we continue to get bullied around by more powerful clubs. This is all Wests Tigers doing unfortunately.

I thought with Ivan coming over that attractiveness to bring high profile players to the club may change. It is imperative we sign McGuire in my eyes otherwise we will continue to sign b grade players and keep treading water. When we start to recruit top line internationals i will ease off on our administration but until then history tells us we won't.

Curtis Rona will go overseas to play rugby for more money. Not ever worth mentioning again.

Ivan
You are either on the Bus or off it
No more hanging on to the hand rail while hanging out the door
Now make a choice
Pull youself back onto the bus an close the door
Or
Let go of the handrail and fall out the door for a face plant into Gusses lap

A signing announcement would be a good tension reliever!

It would, but I doubt we’ll get one whilever the coach speculation is going on. Needs to be put to bed fast, one way or another, or else there will be no one decent left to sign- player or coach!

You’d think there would be some urgency around locking down Luke Brooks for few more seasons before Uncle Nick starts sniffing around with his brown paper bags. Roosters will be looking for a half to replace Cronk for 2020, sounds like Munster is their number one target but if they miss out on him then Brooks may well be their number two option.
