Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

Post by mario chalmers » Thu 18 Oct, 2018 3:06 pm

Oates and Pangai have both "agreed to terms" but have not signed.

Their manager George Mimis has told both players to sign their deals in November but the coaching landscape will have changed by then.

https://www.smh.com.au/sport/nrl/after- ... 509ze.html

As others have stated, Seibold is priority 1 for Brisbane. He is from Rockhampton as is Paul White Broncos CEO.

If the article is right and Seibold has to decide this week, the other dominos will fall quickly thereafter. The wildcard for WT is the likelihood that Souths chase Bennett if Seibold jumps ship.

That would leave Maguire to the Tigers.

I think POMs mail was pretty accurate. We're hoping for some movement on Bennett but have Maguire as a backup if Bennett is retained by Brisbane for 2019.

I just hope we don't sign Maguire first, before Brisbane make their decision. That would be beyond crazy.

We need every advantage to attract good players to WTs and improve performance.

Bennett can deliver this as well as his impressive communication skills, ability to deal with the media in a positive fashion and the admiration players have for him.

This is a pivotal moment in WTs’ future.

Let’s see if WTs’ management has the fortitude to go with the best.
Lol...What pivotal moment are we up to now...?
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..

the longer it drags on, it only makes me doubt that Justin & Marina have any control at all.

Slightly conflicting there Lauren.

I think Justin and Marina are taking their time to ensure they explore all possible options and go through the due process. Our problem before was that we didn't do that.

The one where the club chooses to go with a coach who has a long history of success,, of attracting players, of nurturing young players,, sponsors and being able to communicated effectively with a playing group.

Yeah now we're awaiting on how things unveil at the Broncos and it makes me feel they haven't really got a handle on things.
Rash might be the wrong word. But I don't want the club to set forth a plan totally based on another club's decision. This sends the wrong message to me.

Meanwhile Gus Gould only has to sit back while everything plays into his hands. This is what is most frustrating to me.

I want super coach Bennett, either next year or 2020.

I think he is a myth, the teams he has had success with have been brimming with talent.

So if he comes he and doesn’t do any good he is a myth. If he comes he and gets us into the semis every year, then I’ll gladly admit to being wrong.

So you want a coach for spite purposes?

And ...
If we have to wait until 2020 to get the super coach let’s keep Cleary - even if it is to coach against his son a few more times next year.

We’ve waited this long for success, one more season doesn’t matter. I’m hearing the playing group want Bennett, too.

Maybe we've made our decision

And maybe our future coach knows he has the job

But we are delaying an announcement to make pus gus sweat it out a bit

One thing Madge might be able to bring with him is a couple of big scary Islanders to fill out the side and give us some strength up front. The Kiwis love him, and the Tigers would be like a second home with the ones we have already. Not enough for a Haka but we are getting there....
Please. If Maguire is signed this is a disaster.
A tad over the top imo. How is it a disaster? Sinking Boats full of fleeing refugees is a disaster. Maguire signing with us is just something you disagree with. Me, on the other hand, thinks it would be a huge upgrade and would bring discipline to our club. He might also redesign our forward pack - he likes a strong middle game.
Maguire 'might' bring players and he "might" be better than Ivan.

Scour the internet and I guarantee you won't find evidence of any player holding off from re-signing with his current club because he wants to know where Madge is coaching in 2019.

Bennett meantime has at least 3 players in a position to come with him if he joins WT. Pangai Jr, Oates and Lodge. All have held out of re-committing to the broncos because they want to know where Wayne is going.

https://www.news.com.au/sport/nrl/bronc ... 3879f49dcc

Why can anyone say they'd have Maguire over Bennett in that context?

If we get it will be a game changer.
Oates has been pretty emphatic that he’s wants to stay at the Broncos and wants to be a One Club Butter fingers( sorry , couldn’t resist that)
The same thing that he’s been saying for weeks, he’s not coming here, or by the sound of it anywhere .
And didn’t Tevita, or whatever his name is, sign with the Broncos about a month or so ago,
Not sure on that one but I think he did.
Anyway why would they want to leave a team like they should have next year?
Most players would kill to be in a forward pack like theirs should be.

Why would Gus sweat it out
They’ve got choices , and aren’t hanging out for a coach that can theoretically bring players with him
It seems that Penrith are still in the box seat whatever happens
After playing ducks and Drakes for this long , our guys have to come up with something soon, or risk looking like Amateurs.

Yes and yes.
As I said, if he is the super coach and gets us firing then I’ll be the first to admit that I’m wrong. If he doesn’t improve us then he is no super coach.

Because they have ciraldo but want IC

Anyway you need to get a life

You comment negatively on every post written like it personally affects you

My post was just a light hearted thought on what might be happening

It might not be though

I don’t really care

But you obviously do
