    Yeah I know, but he is a damaging ball runner. I think he would be a solid partner for Hunt.
    Wont happen though so rest assured, itll be sharks

    Please let this be true. It may trigger Dugan and Packer to follow on.

    You've answered your own question.

    Not a fan of Reynolds- some chatter on Tigers forums that they may want him. Bottom line there is about to be a churn of players at some clubs. Stability in our squad is critical as most of the stable squads in last few years have been successful. I see a spike in memberships soon for the Red V!!!

    Doesn't Tony Adams (aka The Mole) have a worse success rate than the gibberers (Rothfield and Kent) on NRL 360?

    I wouldn't be holding my breath.

    As for Hooper, he's a narcissist who clearly rates himself, and not in an enduring way either.

    FMD there are some ludicrous posts and thoughts going on in this place
    People happy to see Dugan and Widdop go and be replaced by a host of
    Grubs
    Hayne, Josh Reynolds, Bird, Foran
    Or
    Journeymen or people likelywithout a club
    Gordon, Morris', Maloney
    Or
    Never was'
    Mybe
    Moses
    To come to our club and some would want more than what Dugan and Widdop are on or looking for
    Would be far happier to pay what is needed to keep what we have and not let any of the others anywhere near our club
    Can't believe the sluttish sell our soles behaviour of some people.

    Hooper has a solid strike rate. Better than Kent and Massoud who are suggesting he is going elsewhere.

    Mate relax is my suggestion none of us keyboard experts can help you out its all purely guess work, speculation and unfounded rumours and made up stories...noone knows whats going on .....and in some instances not even those players invoved know imo.....as I said add nauseum I think we will keep Dugan, Widdop & Packer...if we dont theres nothing you and I can do to prevent it.....in the meantime we're on top...enjoy it while it lasts

    Absolutely agree OT.
    Said it ages ago for Duges, pay him overs and offer him co captaincy.
    Same with the guy I was calling Widdiot last year, pay what it takes. Make it happen.

    We should be lapping up our success and looking forward to smashing the Roosters. If these marquee players were tied up early or let go early, we wouldn't be obsessed with the retention of Dugan and Widdop.

    Confident Packer will be staying, it's just Dugan that we have to worry about. But if Dugan does leave he'll only be going to French Rugby as no club will be willing to give him the coin he wants and every 'big' club already has a fullback.

    Only the Tigers are a threat but I don't see Cleary giving him the money and they're going to be spoon contenders for at least another 3 years.

    Packer will stay because we gave him a lifeline and helped him rehabilitate his life when no one would even let him go near there clubs.

    After that only Mann is a necessity to keep as he's someone that we'd need to take Nightingales wing spot.

    Now that if true it is extremely good news for several reasons
    1. All the doom and gloom sayers proved wrong
    2. No f**kwhit replacement coming
    3. Our marquis player who is in career best form is a Dragon of the very best kind
    4. Proved all the wanker predictions from the sports writers wrong
    And wait for it here is the absolute best part of the whole thing
    5. I expect to see a return from Vas & co with strong claims they have been proven 100% correct and in fact Widdop was definitely not wanted by any other club and him staying is conclusive proof
    Win win all round can't wait for a sign from the missing persons bureau.

    Hopefully we can keep both .. now that roosters claim to have signed Tedesco which other club other than the tigers would want a fullback ? Let alone pay that kind of coin ... that would atleast entice the player to want to leave in the first place .. the answer is 0 if Mary resigns Dugan plays fullback if he doesn't Dugan will still be fullback SO GIVE THE GUY WHAT HE BLOODY DESERVES !

    If the rumors are true that they're circling Gagai it shows that Lafai isn't a priority for the club at all. However if Lafai keep his form up for more than half this season i'm certain he'll be re-signed.

    No other clubs have shown interest in him either because everyone's weary on his knee issues and his form.
