:lol: hmm yeah actually Penrith's are arguably slightly better than ours too.
People fall for Gus' spin. Wow we signed 4 players. We lost our 2 best. We need about 10 into our current squad certainly need the SOO 3. Gus bitches about how we need Local juniors. He's 1. Who has won a comp. 2nd picked for SOO and Australia. The fans love. Off the field a great bloke. Doesn't drink and is a clean skin. It's a disgrace.
Billy Slater, Cam Smith, Cooper Cronk, Brett Stewart, Glenn Stewart, Matt Ballin, Anthony Watmough, Jason King, Steve Matai and Darren Lockyer all disagree.
Exactly. Next year about 1/3 of our squad is off contract. So it's not for Thurston.
Agreed, Reynold should be looking for a new club once his contract is up.
Cleary clearing the decks.
Good on him i say. There hasn't been much success as of late and the rot is deep.
I'll trust the opinion of a coach that made the Warriors club a serious contender (rather than a DUMB football team, which they are now), as well as turning them into a success across all grades over some bogan Penrith supporters who wouldn't know success if it bit them on the arse.
Man Lewis will be an epic pickup for another club.
Parra Lukey. C'mon mate
Lewis definitely looks like being the highest profile player on the market now. Lol at the notion that Canterbury are in the market for him. Does their salary cap have no limit?
IF Luke Lewis leaves, the back row at penrith still looks good
11. Lewis Brown
12. Sika Manu
13. Blake Austin
14. Vaipuna TiaKillifi
I reckon he will stay and the meeting will just be Lewis and Gus putting the water on the fire. Gus cried wolf over salary cap and signed 4 decent players. It's another rouse by Gus but I don't know why they would just say this about their top players. Probs more speculation from media more than anything. But if he leaves whoever gets him are very bloody lucky
You are a idiot. The Warriors are in the exact same position right now as they were this round last year.
Its actually the Toyota Cup that has turned around the Warriors development system not Cleary.
Please let it be a UK club if he is going. It will kill me to see him play against us
His form for us hasn't been great compared his SOO form, so maybe he is unhappy. Shame, am a huge fan of Lewis.
Come to the Sharks Luke, join the dark side.
thats rich coming from a roosters fan :lol:
canterbury have a lot of players off contract at the end of the year will they just dump them near the end of the season when all the other clubs have spent their cap for next year already and nobody can buy them?
Gould has had Panthers fans in a daze since he was first announced he was coming back to the club. Nothing he does is wrong (apparently). Even the most ardent fans who were anti-management previously have crossed the line to join Gus. And now it continues to unravel.
Gus and Cleary won't accept blame for this. It will be the player, the salary cap pressures, hell, it could even be blamed on the Carbon Tax before Gould will acknowledge he has lost all control of the club and its players.
Lewis is a player who wants to play for Penrith. He's shown that previously when he backed out of the Souths deal. For him to know realise that he can't continue as a Penrith Panther player must be gut wrenching.
nope, not unless he was already registered with that club before the deadline
maybe penriff want $bw
I agree, I think at best the jury was still out after Cleary's career at the Warriors, yes they went well last year, but Cleary was allowed to keep his position for a very long time when you compare him to other young coaches who hadn't produced a team which performs year in and year out.
Looking at the Warriors performance this and year and the progressive deterioration of the Panthers' form- which while partially due to a number of injured players, appears to also in part due to the failures of their coaching staff.
