Re: Wests Tigers sign Joey Leilua from Canberra Raiders

Unless you've got info you're not allowed to tell us; there's no reason we can't see someone with a little first grade experience searching for a deal come in on min wage. If we're only promoting from within then we've settled on 3 player depth. I guess we had that last year with Oldfield, Kris and ...

Doubt he'd see any first grade this year so I wouldn't count him.

Re: Wests Tigers consider signing Joey Leilua from Canberra Raiders

Depth is now:

Andre Niko
Harley Smith-Shields
Michael Oldfield
Sebastian Kris

Not as good as last years but not too bad either.

Re: Wests Tigers consider signing Joey Leilua from Canberra Raiders

Scott is likely playing somewhere else if we didn't pick him up this year. The storm were trying to free up cap.
That's why they've lost chambers and Scott and basically signed no one.

Re: Scottric emerges as new Canberra Raiders right edge

Yeah the right edge should be fine. It's the left edge with Simonsson that will be interesting to see. Great one on one but structurally he made a lot of wrong calls last year. Which is no surprise given his background and the year he had. Should be much better after a pre-season practicing and a sp...

Re: Wests Tigers consider signing Joey Leilua from Canberra Raiders

Even if BJ was a saint if he's not willing to take a huge paycut we wouldn't be able to fit him in.
The guys on the upgrade path are Cotric, Bateman and Wighton. If you were looking at the next 4 years (including this one) I think the decision makes itself.

Re: Mounties 2020

Just a bit of muscle really. Big motor. Good game awareness. Just lacks a bit of strength which he'll gain as he gets older.
TBH feels like he'll leave the game before having a chance to develop.

I'll be very dissapointed if BJL leaves Canberra. He's a weapon. I'm scratching my head as to why it's come to this really. I can understand in the grand scheme of things Stick and Don are planning 1-2 years in advance and settling our squad but BJ is ripe right now. Anyway..I'm more than happy wit...

Re: Wests Tigers consider signing Joey Leilua from Canberra Raiders

I mean the guy stood head and shoulders above their other players (bar Walker) in a semi while also playing out of his preferred position, moving about during the year and had injuries.
He's 21.
From the tigers perspective he's ticking all the boxes.

I know they said he was training with the rehab group last week but it’s possible he is just staying away until this is sorted.

Not sure what the big deal is here?!? Jack hasn't broken a contract. He didn't take the option in his favor. (Yes, that also benefits his new manager) Jack hasn't asked for more than what he is worth for a player in his position and with rep honours. Good on him for doing what all sportsmen do. Ear...
