Interesting that Matthew Lodge is there.
So lets get this straight, if you Royally stuff up but are still talented. You get to walk from your contract and be picked by a top 4 team for peanuts after serving 6 months or so in purgatory?

Funny how "brooks" and "moses" are still developing, while Nathan Cleary is in the squad.
Ouch :shock:

Im really happy for moses, he really gave it his all at the eels last season and he deserves a blues jersey :roll: :roll
Would be very interesting to know the stats for a halfback being selected in any sort of rep team (even a train on squad) just after they won a wooden spoon.

This may be a first.
Terry Lamb won the Dally M player of the year at five eighth for Wests, who come last.

Fittler is just grooming Brooks before the poach.
Trust me.
This is buttering him up with origin talk and Roosters will swoop in once Fittler gives him a taste.
Happened with Teddy and it will happen here.

Once they get into origin camp, it begins.
It's away from clubs eyes and all sorts of forces will be in his ear.
Teddy will be saying "it's awesome here mate" and Brooks will think the grass is greener on the other side.
It would be hard to resist. Success and money.

Cronk has one season left and Brooks is off contract same time.
I hope it doesn't happen but who knows.

Ill never forget a direct quote that Gould mentioned from Politis.

He said about Tedesco "ill just leave him on the tree another year and let him mature"

We might all love rugby league but rugby league sure doesnt love us. its a corrupt sport and nothing has improved in the last 5 years.

How very true... Unfortunately there is no one out there with balls to really make a noise about it to make it change.

I think that Tedesco would have been pounced on anytime he was available - they would not have waited a year and take the risk of being out-pounced.

Ahhh yes you are right, it was what was said about Mitchell Moses sorry.

I dont remember Isaac saying anything, Gould was on one these footy shows telling the story of what Politis was doing.

Yeah, my young blokes first year playing league and soon found that Wyong is the powerhouse club on the Central Coast. The group also own Budgewoi soccer club for whom he played last year and another poker machine palace elsewhere. Their pairing with the chooks seemed like a good match.

It was in Gus's infamous tweet to Unca Nick when Mitchell was linked to the Rorters which caused him to shut down his twitter for a short time..

I thought it was significant at the time as it showed Isaac was merely using Wests Tigers as a stepping stone to further one of his clients career..In the end though if stories are to be believed Mitchell agreed to go to the Rorters the following year then backflipped on the deal leading to Unca Nick saying they will never deal with Isaac Moses or his clients yet signed Teddy the following year...shonky so and so's...

Terry Lamb was a great player. Moses is not.

Moses was arguably the worst player for Parra last season.
