    Just another reason to hate the Rorters Roosters. Couldn't even be competitive last night and give us hope, (not that we deserve to be there).

    We've apparently signed Ryan Matterson, which is great news if true

    He'll play the other edge forward Pieman, replacing Chee Cam.

    Good signing if true, but it worries me how much he costs. If he's coming to the Tigers then no doubt we paid overs for him, but at least its for only 2 years.

    In other news Ivan Cleary confirms he will be at Tigers next year by telling Farah as much, which is why he re-signed and didn't retire.

    He has played many positions for the Roosters, but Tigers have signed him as a forward. He can play middle or edge, not sure where Tigers will play him.

    Lawrence's spot is probably safe though, its the other edge where he is more likely to get a run  - Rochow, Chee-Kam, Aloiai and probably others all rotated through that spot this season.

    The Tigers have finally got their shit together off the field and now its been undermined by another club.

    Ivan Cleary is set to sign a 3 year deal at Panthers from 2021. Yes it may look legit but the offer has the potential to disable the Tigers campaign. It should not be allowed, you cannot approach a contracted player more then 12 months out from their contract expiring, then it should be the same for coaches and staff. This could have a distablising effect on the Tigers not knowing whether Ivan will be committed for the next 2 years or not.

    It also looks like his son Nathan will sign a long term contract to stay at the Panthers further enticing Ivan to jump back onto the ship that had him walk the plank once before.

    Maybe we should let Ivan walk now and get some form of compensation from the Panthers. I don't know what, maybe an unknown player like Kikau and Merrin, and maybe some youngens coming through.

    Imagine if Ciraldo and the Panthers win the next 2 premierships then he's sacked for Cleary.
