    Trying to get out of here but Pou keeps asking me questions and you guys keep talking about the Tigers. There is more Tigers discussion here than anywhere else.

    Not rubbishing Peats at all. I just reckon if BA really wanted him he would have resigned him earlier or found a way to keep him. Peats wasnt the only option at his disposal to move on.

    Imo, no - I know that Arthur rated Twal, but he thought Alex needed to bulk up;but the decision was between Twal and Alvaro - and I wouldn't swap Alvaro for anyone tbh.

    Should have kept Twal and dumped Matagi or Vae.

    Well I'd take Alvaro over either Packer or Matulino tbh.

    Mannah is tougher to call at the end of his career. I'd probably take him purely because of the three he's got the best attitude (Muts is lazy as f**k when he wants to be) and shouldn't be in Long Bay

    Twal's stats this year have been impressive (I know they don't show everything).

    I rated Twal very highly, but I completely understand why we let him go and I was surprised by how quickly he became a genuine first grader.

    Really he's a smaller, less fit version of Alvaro. We didn't have a first grade spot for him an probably wouldn't have this year either, where the Tigers did.

    Packer has been form prop...
    Graheme has been not far behind

    Well I wouldn't agree he's been THE form prop...But he should be in jail and I do not want him at Parramatta, I don't care how f**king good he plays tbh.

    Same with Matt Lodge. I feel conflicted having to support Auvaa, these two scum are far worse

    I didn't hear any price, but we obviously rated him enough to have him in the squad in the first place. If he left it would've been for the money, which we refused to match.

    Interestingly, he and Eisenhuth are putting up much better attacking numbers than Packer and Matulino, including being given more carries.

    He always was a hard worker. That's why I liked him. Hard to teach that kind of attitude.

    Not questioning BA as they know a lot more then us, but gee I would prefer Twal rather Matagi even Peni.

    I say they probably didn't expected him to progress so quickly as you mentioned.

    You can't keep them all.

    Tigers might have smarter recruiters. Also stole the cougar.

    I'm sure the club knew how good Twal was. They had been observing him for years.
