    Rumours (signings, sackings & other stuff)

    Agree at the time WT and Sheens parted ways they needed to apart. Sheens had become somewhat complacent but I still recall some of the episodes where ti was so obvious that Sheens knew how to play the game with the club much better than the club knew how to. I recall his last contract extension...

    Rumours (signings, sackings & other stuff)

    My take of McDonnell coming was is wasnt he in charge of recruitment when the focus was on the south western sector of Sydney for the players coming through. I think he did well at that and maybe the club is making the conscious decision to go the locally developed south western connection and...

    Rumours (signings, sackings & other stuff)

    The other forum is saying Hartigan was one of the leakers. Also of note- apparently his brother who was a scout for WT for juniors in QLD resigned last night too. Something is/was up.

    Wouldn't there be some leeway for employment/professional sport application?

    I don't know one way or the other on this instance effecting player recruitment or not. However I do recall many instances of being told by others and seeing written that players when they look at a side that is seeking their signature look at how established and effective their spine is. WT...

    wouldn't that cause a ruckus...... stirrer. :)

    Rumours (signings, sackings & other stuff)

    You would hope so, but on field performance this season doesn't bear it out. Same with our defensive and attacking coaches, whatever they did in training sure didn't show when the game was on.

    Season 2022

    I think we will get some loyalty from these players but the degree of it remains in question. Yes, we have given them a chance but the question is have they bought into the WT story or just journeymen on the way to success. I reckon Stefano and Doueihi would be the most loyal to WT (not Maguire)...

    Season 2022

    I think that is a very good point / question- once our signings ''on potential'' actually show some good form and ability- when it comes to re-signing them on bigger $$$ and withstanding the allure of bigger / better club offers will be very difficult. Our last effort at building a team around...

    Rumours (signings, sackings & other stuff)

    I think we have 2 x high value, not great return players on our books for a few more years in Brooks and Nofoaluma. If we could/should/would tap one of them on the shoulder to move on for next season who should it be? If the rumours are true that Brooks doesn't like working with Maguire and as...

    Rumours (signings, sackings & other stuff)

    Have to say in my depressed state I strongly doubt we will get anybody that is valued by other clubs. As per usual end of season WT wait and wait and we end up with the bargain basement sale items / players no one else wants. Might be great in balancing the books but terrible in actually...

    Random Tigers articles from the media

    I've said it many times across different forums, juniors development and competitions up to Reserve grade should be managed by the NRL Why have some clubs with the cost of running this and other clubs with little or no development structure picking the eyes out if the development players in...

    Rumours (signings, sackings & other stuff)

    If we are keeping Roberts which apparently Maguire wants to do but held off whilst spotlight on, I think Peachey would be a good utility buy to cover and then try for a quality fledgling fullback to understudy Laurie. Then try all out to get SIms rather than Elliott but if Sims wants Roosters...

    Rumours (signings, sackings & other stuff)

    I suspect we will loose Garner in the off season to Manly- thigs just seem to be lining up that way. So we will have a backrow forward spot. Backs are required with extra requirement for wing / centre / fullback / utility. We ned to have some cover for Laurie at FB without having to shuffle...

    Season 2022

    Well, at least decision made. I hope they can recruit the experienced players needed to lead and foster the young'uns. Curious on the changes they mentioned.
  16. Magpies Forever

    Rumours (signings, sackings & other stuff)

    Im pretty sure Maguire is gone- only because of his demonstrated inability to communicate plans and tactics to the players and recruitment of seasoned players has stalled and even Maguire's own future plan requires that leavening of the squad with seasoned players which he cannot attract. I...

    Rumours (signings, sackings & other stuff)

    Id not be thrilled and the as far as I reckon it would only be palatable if Tamou was going in the off season- either retiring or to ESL. If Woods did come back he would be nowhere near any leadership role, just play football and no guarantee of a starting sport or even in the 17. Maybe if he...

    Rumours (signings, sackings & other stuff)

    I think the or if should be to Maguire, if he stays n he must get assistance as shown where there are deficiencies. No friends etc, the assistants are picked by the club and he has to go with it. His selection of assistants to date has shown no other way we can possibly continue with him unless...

    If not Madge, then who?

    Pretty spot on there I reckon- Madge has the right vision but not the right execution. The pathway he and club have set up can be continued, with new coach undertaking to continue the way, but unfortunately I just cant see Maguire surviving. For the plan of his and WT to mature their youngun's...

    Season 2021

    I reckon we should really be putting the thought into Tamou to either retire or have a go in ESL for his remaining time in professional football. The NRL is too fast for him now and the 20 to 30 minutes he averages in a game is not up to standard that WT require especially for a captain. They...
