You would think clubs would learn wouldn't you. Another 700k plus contract on a high risk proposition.

What gets me about the bloke is that the reason he wishes to break his contract with the club ( besides the big dollars that the Cowboys will pay him ) is that the Tigers purchased another forward - whom I don’t know - but poor old Luciano believes that he has been disrespected by the club because of the signing ?

Got me beat ? 🤔

From what I have observed Luche has a lot of talent and potential (there's that word again) but also a massive ego. I imagine he could be pretty hard work for a coach. Good luck to Todd I guess.

Pretty sure he is peeved over the departure of his brother. Not that he should be.

Looks like Gus is making a difference at the Bulldogs. Reed Mahoney now signed for 4 years.. Bulldogs looking to release up to 4 players including Luke Thompson

I cannot understand how they - or any club for that matter , can go out on a singing plurge willy nilly and then expect their current contracted players to look elsewhere ?

Am I missing something here , many of the players are still contracted to the club , just was is a contract worth nowadays ?

Perhaps they should just do away with them entirely ( could you imagine the perspiration running from their agents foreheads 😥 ) and merely press a rubber stamp on all players hands in the future - when the stamp wears off then they will be free to move on .

A bit of rugby league trivia for us all . . .

Was at that game. He could pot a goal Ken! They had our cash in close ones that year Newtown. Got us in the Willls Cup Final; beat us in this game at the SCG and beat us in the mid week replay after the semi- final draw. Jack Gibson coached them that year if I remember correctly…

I can recall the match also Inisai , I was shocked that we were beaten , but more so by the solidarity point . It must had been a long drive home for you . ☺️

I was in the Sheridan Stand
If not mistaken Wilson was a reserve that day and came on just to have the shot at a field goal which was a foregone conclusion.
I think maybe Warren Ryan was the blue bags coach but not sure.

I was at working that day , but managed to nick outside to the car to listen to the game for a couple of minutes . It was only at the end of my shift that I discovered that the Dragons were beaten .

The other reason is that the Bluebag (or was it Jet then ?) , whatever had the same name as my father - whom I blamed for losing a $5 bet with workmate .

You didn’t live in Kingsgrove did you as I knew a Ken Wilson as well?

Yes, I think your right about Wilson coming on OT, but pretty sure Jack Gibson was their coach; Ryan didn't go their till later. They played a similar style to us when Gibson coached us in 1970, 71, that’s why I think we were in so many ‘close ones’ that year.
