    Rumours (signings, sackings & other stuff)

    Interesting that Adrian Tripodina comes from a 'team of one'. http://www.pacificbluecapital.com.au/who-we-are/ Better than the team of 100's the Tigers have in their office, no doubt.

    Reminds me of Kerry Packer and Alan Bond - Packer said "You only get one Alan Bond in your lifetime, and I've had mine".

    Rumours (signings, sackings & other stuff)

    2 guys who have something to prove, more than likely on their last chance, why not go after them? I think what they would bring is something the Tiger players who let themselves down and lacked so often, a will to win, a need to win and a determination to keep playing for 80 minutes. A no...

    Rumours (signings, sackings & other stuff)

    The assistant coaches are typically responsible for defence and attack, not 100% at every club though. The guys we have, have been disappointing. Former 1st grade coaches love to still be involved and I think Pay would be outstanding with the defence role. Cartright, Furner, Henry, Price and...

    Rumours (signings, sackings & other stuff)

    Ron, the Canterbury-Bankstown JRLFC gets out to Moorebank & Milperra so may be better on the 'otherside' of Liverpool. Wasn't that new stadium going to be used by the Dogs?

    If not Madge, then who?

    Why not be innovators, introduce a new payment scheme, what about payments based on Win, Losses & Draws, nah there's no more draws, win by 20+ get a win bonus, keep opposition to 10 points or less get a bonus - they might start to give a shit if there's dollars involved. With tongue set firmly...

    WT’s Pathways

    As you are no doubt aware Vic, the junior aged teams are a very cut-throat environment, parents get excited and start pushing their boys with their club contacts in the Harold Matthews, some kids stand out after realising other kids from other leagues are sometime, better than them. Then they...

    Random Tigers articles from the media

    And another one: Is there a greater cop-out in rugby league than a club announcing it will launch an “exhausting review”? It’s the fluffy, corporate gibber-jabber management spits out when it’s run out of answers. The Wests Tigers are about to conduct a review that will arrive at a result we...

    Random Tigers articles from the media

    Another day, another media article: This one though is spot on in regards to who should be included in the review. The Wests Tigers have been taken to task for launching a “mickey mouse review” that will be run by the very people it should almost certainly be investigating. Immediately...

    Random Tigers articles from the media

    Another 'journalist' stating the blooming obvious, seeing who's unsigned and stating the blooming obvious again. The Wests Tigers reportedly have $1.6 million to spend in their salary cap and four spots remaining on their roster for 2022, but it remains to be seen which combination of...

    If not Madge, then who?

    And a good one at that, will have the support of management and the players, oh wait a minute, Then on to Widnes where,

    Random Tigers articles from the media

    Another random article from the media: Includes my questions in bold & brackets. Brad Fittler has come to the defence of coach Michael Maguire, insisting his players must also wear the blame for Wests Tigers' 2021 failures as noise continues to grow around his tenure in Concord. The final...

    Match Discussion: Round 25 vs Canterbury @ Moreton Daily Stadium

    The change of coach ? It was his job to get them up for the game, the fact that the Bulldogs were hungrier comes back to the players once they cross the white line. The effort on the field, the lack of leadership and game management from the 7 is simple on the team and the 7. Disgraceful effort.

    Match Discussion: Round 25 vs Canterbury @ Moreton Daily Stadium

    I think this is a good idea as well Vic, too slow for an outside back but having the skills of a back could see him develop into a good backrower. He has a good start as he seems to be a big build (for a back), does he have the desire or want though? Is it worth way way extra sprint work to...

    Random Tigers articles from the media

    Yes an interesting read, dribs and drabs equals lies and just rumours for fans as we really do not know who or what to believe. From the read, I can blame a few and feel sorry for a few but, someone else reading the story wouldn’t blame the few or feel sorry for anyone, that’s life. I do feel...

    Rumours (signings, sackings & other stuff)

    John Bateman is edging closer to an NRL return less than 12 months after walking out on the Raiders to go home. Bateman went to market last year but couldn’t get a sufficient offer and instead opted to return to England on a long-term contract...

    There was talk that Tyrone Peachey wanted to return to Sydney. Now there’s a utility player who would add value.

    100% - plain as day you could see him peel away - problem was Liddle thought he had the ball but.

    Rumours (signings, sackings & other stuff)

    In regards to Pearce, I wonder who the some at the Wests Tigers to provide the halfback with some food for thought? Is it just a journo getting paid for filling print space or is there someone talking to Pearce?
