    Or for the opportunity which he was given immediately at The Tigpies. He would probably not have even made our 21 at this stage if he had stayed.

    That was not really an option though if Twal was after a longer term deal. Getting rid of blokes on 1 year contracts doesn't sort out the back end of things.

    Well, at least we beat the Manly supporters in their corresponding game day thread responses. 1400+ Vs 1, and still counting. Nobody f**ks with us!

    Itinerant Indians Ruin Curry?

    I’ll have you know I find that very offensive.

    I realy did but he sure got us going well didn't he? There was always calls that his old school tactics is what causes high injuries in the squad.

    BA is not keen on giving young blokes a run, 2 debutants in now his 5th season is testament to that.

    It's not the 2018 cap that is at issue. Wests offered him a 3 year deal, we didn't seem to want to offer him a long-term deal.

    Yes Pou we signed 2 big forwards who have played at reserve grade standard for the last few years. Overwhelming, but they came cheap, hopefully!

    They are 2 players I was hoping BA would go after. Matulino has been average for years but everyone appears to go backwards at the Warriors so wasn't particularly worried about his form. BA generally gets the players to perform better but lets see how W-T go this season with them. So far they have beaten 2 heavyweights while we've been flogged by a top 4 team (Panthers) and top 8. If we end up 0-5 what stats will you throw up then?

    They played NRL standard which is why they got picked in first grade.

    Why do you think anyone except Ivan Cleary was going to sign those 2 players when they came on the market? Cleary coached them both at the Warriors and they were always going to the Tigers.

    If Hayne hasn't fired by rnd 12 cut him loose. 500k and 400k from Scott.
    Mannah surely should go to UK next season. His contract must be up?
    We then can get rid of Matagi and Vave or sign them cheap.
    Boyd and Jnr should be looked at.
