    Rumoured Targets 3

    Tigers can have a $50 mil budget and it won't make much difference if the culture and front office are rubbish. They essentially have the same problem we had a few years back in that no one wants to go there.

    Penrith were ordinary, MOTM close call between Klein and Ray Stone

    2021 SF 2 Sat - Penrith 8-6 Parramatta @ BB Print

    Well thing is they've got Capewell who is a pure edge and a pretty decent one and Kikau who is too lazy and soft to play in the middle

    The fact Ashley Klein and Sutton are considered 2 of the supposed top refs in the NRL show it's clearly not a meritocracy

    Klein managed to find a high shot there but somehow managed to miss Latrell almost killing Joey Manu

    Is 2021 a Pass?

    To be honest I think if you watch our game film as a whole finishing 7th was pretty flattering. It definitely wasn't a great year in terms of the actual quality of football we produced but the plus side is we won all the games we really needed to win at the back end, the downside is we showed we...

    The “Unpopular Opinion” Thread

    Centre of excellence will be located right next to the stadium so an absolutely ideal spot and was scheduled for completion by the start of the 2022 season, I'd imagine that might be delayed due to lockdowns and covid. I mean the club has come a long way from the mid to late 2000s when the 1st...

    The “Unpopular Opinion” Thread

    Absolutely, the coaches are obviously doing whatever they can to win, it's entirely results driven, which is the issue, further to that coaches are looking for kids who can execute their own game plan rather than kids who are perhaps abit raw but might have more upside. It's an issue that has...

    The “Unpopular Opinion” Thread

    I think to be fair we never really had the financial resources to do it before. I think it's not just the pathways that need to be improved but the entire approach of scouting. I think for too long we've judged the success of our junior system on the results of the Mats and Ball teams rather...

    The “Unpopular Opinion” Thread

    We can be though that's the frustrating thing, massive supporter base, massive junior catchment area, one of the most financially secure teams in the NRL (wests is the biggest leagues club group in the country) and with a state of the art centre of excellence on the way. The only thing stopping...

    Rumoured Targets 3

    Hosking is a poor man's Brodie Jones. Plenty of effort but doesn't have that physical potential to really make a big impact in the top grade. If he were 19 or 20 you could probably factor in potential growth and offer him a deal based on that but he'll be 25 by kick off next year.
