    Wouldn't fucking surprise me, not like our first 8 rounds after that are hard or anything. I hope the Board at least protested the trial in NQ, out draw is ridiculous.

    Suli released to play for Canterbury. After signing a kid on massive overs as the next best thing he is released. Looks like the begining of a wider deck chair shuffle. Anyone else heard the RTS rumour ?

    Suli sounds like another hopeful that never applied himself to work hard. If that's the case then good riddance to the over paid bloke. I hope its true the Tigers aren't paying a cent of his Bulldogs move, which baffles me because the dogs were already close to their salary cap and have now paid big bickies for Suli without releasing anyone....yet. (unless Brenko Lee's money was used?)

    Yeah a few weeks ago they were over the cap etc getting rid of players, now they go spend money on him. Makes no sense.

    Yep, cap problems one week then pay 400k for an unproven winger the next.

    Sounds like the old the Bulldog ate our paperwork so we don't know how far over the cap we have gone excuse.

    Well the 20kgs overweight was allegedly from the start of pre-season training. Preumably he has lost some of the weight since then (or maybe not given his apparent poor attitude was what caused the Tigers to ditch him)

    In fairness, history would suggest that the Tigers are probably still paying a fair chunk of that.

    There's been some interesting chat on the Weststigers forum overnight. An insider is claiming the Tigers will announce a big signing next week but its for 2019.

    Lots of speculation happening but no names yet, just this clue:
    "Needs an NRL clearance. Just saying. If it gets the OK Big chance will be here this year"

    Players like Barba, Carney and Israel Falou are being favoured.

    Also Brooks might have been given keys to the bus but he is on his last legs and needs to get off his "L's" or he will be demoted or released.

    Barba is the one in today's paper that they are speculating may be coming back but no club mentioned

    2019 is a Rugby World Cup year. Folau won't give up his mortgage on the Wallabies #15 jersey.
