    Some tigers fans think they’ve got Nathan Brown I’m replace of Matterson. Don’t think we would let him go

    Yeah but at least now I get it. I was actually thinking about when Peats called Norman skinny fat.

    Only way that happens is if we have replacement for Nrown

    They started that rumour about 2 weeks ago. It began 'I don't have any contacts but.....'


    Wests released Matterson. You don't get players in return when you release someone from their deal before he's worked out where he's going.

    Or if signing RCG + Matterson + big upgrades to Drown and Mahoney puts us over the cap.

    I remember Anderson described that practice as "horrendous" during the salary cap investigation but I dunno. It has its drawbacks but also its benefits. I do wonder though if the new regime would be doing that again just yet though. In a way I kinda hope they are.

    Well if that’s the case, someone forgot to mention it to Tiger’s Chairman Barry O’Farrell as he was quoted in an article yesterday saying:

    “I wish Matto all the best at the Eels but there’s something seriously wrong when, halfway through a contract, he can walk away and the Wests Tigers get no benefit at all.”

    https://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/s...s/news-story/07742b2545eebb2b763373babd505d76

    It’s behind a paywall but if you’re desperate enough you can access it directly from Buzz’s twitter account.

    That mushroom cloud looks similar to something Hiney produces after half a bottle of Kraken.

    Signing players you need and releasing the ones you don't is something every club does, including the good ones. The Roosters are supposedly happy for one of their best players to leave with a year to run on his contract, now they know they won't be keeping him.

    All of them so that I can burn them and send the ashes down the river.

    Not much talk on here about our 2020 draw. Everyone must be fine with it.

    It doesn't need to be a swap. The Tigers got the benefit of cap space. Now if anyone needs to release players the Tigers are in a great position to sign them. That includes players we let go.
