    I hope all of you all are little bit more humble now. Tigers fans came in here 100% Madge would be dramatically better than Ivan's was at the Tigers. And look what he did. He took the Tiger from 9th under Ivan to 9th this year!!!! What an incredible improvement. Truly he deserves the title of Super Coach.

    And Ivan took a team that had made week 2 of the finals for the past 3 years to 10th.
    Neither side has much to cheer about this year.

    Media seems to toot their horn for them too, "how good is Bankwest, the Eels are basically unstoppable there", well i was at the game that they lost, it was marvelous, i agree, thursday night terrible scheduling, but fans showed up and we watched a wet, gritty panthers side who everyone wrote off, win their first of seven straight matches, bankwest IS good. but the eels traditional choke is coming, followed by a 2020 wodden spoon. Its inevitable!

    Well a loss today tells me that none of that side will make first grade on a regular basis in the next two years .

    Burto's running game was very strong, also put in a couple of tough kicks. Will just need to grow as a game manager as our last-tackle options left a lot to be desired at times. Still will be fighting Luai for the six jersey at this point.

    J'maine Hopgood was strong too, great chopping tackles in defence.

    We were there regularly in all grades under Gus. All grades suffer the moment he lost his power.

    I think he was poor at managing our cap with overs to everyone. But i think he could do better at offloading guys and not picking up any of their contracts.

    10 of the 17 that played can still play 20's next year. Staines, Burton etc have been in NSW Cup but plenty of talent in this side

    Neither Laurie or Burton are organisers it showed. Still will push for FG.

    Hopgood, Gaut etc will make the jump up next year and will keep developing

    I'm not saying we do but there were guys in here who acting as if Madge was Bellamy and going on about him. I remember one even calling him a super coach.

    It was that smugness that I referring to when both coaches should be disappointed in their decisions this season.

    Egan was allegedly spotted touring the Warriors set up last week.
    The rumour on Hetherington is that he has changed his mind and for the moment is staying.
    I would like to keep both too.

    I can understand the early releases of DWZ, Waqa Blake and even RCG but I don’t see any benefit whatsoever in allowing Wade Egan to leave.

    Wade Egan is not likely to be on any more than 300K, if that, so surely given we have nurtured him thru the juniors what benefit is there to releasing him. I don’t get it!!!

    Same with Jack Hetherington, a huge talent, yes he has had a bad 2019 but still he is a talent none the less.

    The way this rebuild is looking I can;t help but feel Russell Packer will be in Panthers colours in 2020 albeit only to play CC.

    Honestly, I have no faith in the three wise men leading our club at present.

    I wonder if it was like folks saying they saw Peach at training this week ? Time will give us the answer I suppose.
