Saints need another outside back with dickfingerz. Make it happen!
Anyone swimming in the deep end knew Dallin was a front rower and Bellyache always said he was more Bea Arthur than Anne Frank.
Turns out Ivan needs more time in the mens shed and less battering Nathans sav.
Addendum: Too easy.
Farg. Beat me to it mate!
Brett Lobb is turning in his grave....
No fan of News journos but the press conference on 360 tonight from Ivan was embarrassing.
I actually agreed with Kent. Then went and vomited, shat myself and showered to cleanse my soul.
DWZ can captain Poland because of the Zelesniak lineage. With DWZ at fullback, brother Malakai on the wing, and Leeds Rhinos Mikolaj Oledzki at prop, Poland would have the basis of a strong team in the 2021 World Cup.
I feel for Nathan. If the whole thing goes completely tits up over a longer period, that puts him in a very awkward position. I'd imagine it already is - and his form would show that (although hard to play well in a shit side like Penrith). The whole Nathan and me thing was bogus from the start, Ivan always struck me as less flighty and silly than that.
Just always remember, karma is a thing, people. Shit always finds a way of tracking back towards you.
The qualifying is almost complete so no idea what you’re talking about.
The big question is has he any French heritage?
Ate a croissant once
Ahhh Jacques Cousteau! Viva la France!
Ivan used to have a reputation as a really good, stand up guy - but he's massively eroded that over the last 12 months.
His 'sulky little bitch' attitude in the press conferences stinks. The Penrith fans deserve a better explanation that the BS he's dishing up at the moment. Nobody expects fine details, but you at least want a bit of substance around what sort of things they're doing to patch things up, or even a denial along the lines of 'when you're in a losing patch, there will always be rumours of disharmony, the only way forward is to work hard together as a team and start winning some games, and then those types of rumours will disappear'.... but no, he plays the whole 'no comment, I'm not gonna talk about selections, blah blah blah'...
He was even asked a question about Mansour and RCG being recalled, and he still gave 'no comment'. If I were a Panthers fan, I'd be seriously pissed at his lack of respect.
I notice he'd got no problem talking about NSW selection and talking up why Nathan should be there.
He's not coming across well at all, and I'd suggest his attitude is a reflection of some of the goings on behind closed doors at Penrith. It seems a toxic culture at the moment.
They might win a battle but I doubt they'd win the Warsaw
What could it have been about then?
Job security? Cash? He had both at the Tigers and he still had his word.
If not for Nathan, then why cause the massive drama that he did last year?
Just goes from bad to worse at Penriff
I've always given DWZ shit for the fake tough guy attitude but he is a quality player and clearly gives a shit, more than you can say for the rest of them.
No no no no no
Who wants a premiership?
Sign a representative player turfed out at Penrith as an apparent problem and they help you win.
Roosters and Sharks know this to be true.
Bulldogs Broncos Cowboys could all use a class FB
Would love to see him go to Wests but they have way too much tied up in Mbye
For the record, that was the only effective tackle this year
it was 'cleary' to most that once Ivan upped and left Wests to go to Penrith that anything he ever had to say about attitude, commitment, loyalty, etc from then on in public or among the panthers playing group, were hollow and meaningless. The decision he made was professional suicide.
Actions speak louder than words, and DWZ is merely following his leader's illustrious example.
His current attitude and demeanour is EXACTLY as it was at the Tigers when the cat was out of the bag about the back door shenanigans at Penrith. His demeanour IMMEDIATELY switched from his previous calm all business composed demeanour to the sulky little bitch attitude where it was all media misinformation. It seems to me that THIS is the real Ivan, particularly when under pressure. The cool calm composed Ivan, man of integrity persona that he traded on for years is clearly just a show and what we see now is the real man.
