  • Tigers in cap trouble - time to rescue Matto?

    So the Tigers will be deducted about 600k from the salary cap next year (due to some Farah deal). Could we make a play and bring Matterson back to Bondi? He's a great second rower who will continue to improve (especially around Robbo's coaching) and has great utility value

        He went to the Tigers for the opportunity to play regular first grade, not for the money. And the fact is the Chooks cannot offer him the regular first grade spot. Just can't fit them all in. I mean Crighton and Radley deserve a spot, and then there's Cords, Maubs, Liu ...

                I'd take Packer before Matto.

                  I'd take JWH, SST, Cords, Crichton, Radley, Liu, Tetevano, Maubs and Collins before both. Oh wait, that's why we couldn't afford to keep Matto and Napa?

                    Matto is no chance.

                    I'm hoping Sitili Tupounuia can do good things this year. From what I've seen of him in the lower grades (admittedly not much), he has a bit of skill about him. With Cords and Crichton both 80 minute players, he mightn't get much of a chance until Origin. He's behind Butcher at this stage and isn't getting any younger, but he reminds you of Tawera Nikau.

                      It was a shame to lose him because I thought he was the next Maubs. But like you said, he didnít want to play off the bench. Same as Connor Watson last year. Oh well, they canít all be like Maubs and be happy to play anywhere just to be in the team. Shame that.

                        I don't think so. Despite the whining from clueless supporters of other clubs (I wonder if my Tigers supporting colleague will stop calling us 'The Rorters' now) and the blatant rorting that's gone on from many other clubs over the years) the Roosters actually let players go to manage the salary cap responsibly.

                          No. Josh Curran will be better.

                          Packer for me too.
