If Mitchell Moses wants to leave the Wests Tigers to Parramatta, he needs to ask for a release himself - The Sydney Morning Herald

If Mitchell Moses wants a release from his final year at the Wests Tigers to join Parramatta this week, he needs to march into Ivan Cleary's office on Tuesday morning and demand it himself.

Not his manager. He has to do it himself.

Wests Tigers fail to learn the lessons of history - The Sydney Morning Herald

Wests Tigers should have learnt from history the folly of having their best four players come off contract at the same time. Nor should the drama of unresolved contract issues affecting team performance be new to the club, albeit a joint-venture one.

The problem is that too many people on club boards and at NRL headquarters itself believe that modern rugby league began in 1998, post the Super League war. They ignore the lessons of the past.

In 1979, Wests' semi-final campaign was derailed by whispers three of their best players – John Dorahy, Les Boyd and Ray Brown – would sign with rival clubs. As coach, I recall running laps of Lidcombe Oval before training with the players, only to notice the "big three" fall back behind the group and...

Wests Tigers Cooper Cronk: NRL club unlikely to wait on Storm star ... - Fox Sports

WESTS Tigers officials wouldn’t wait for the remaining members of their so-called ‘big four’ to re-sign and it seems they won’t be playing the long game for Cooper Cronk either.

Tigers football manager Kelly Egan on Sunday defended the club’s decision to withdraw contract offers for Aaron Woods and James Tedesco, saying they had waited long enough.

“The dialogue was always pretty positive. They’re local players and they were always keen to stay,” Egan said on Triple M NRL on Sunday.

“We knew they were good opportunities for the boys to take on a leadership and legacy role with this club. We couldn’t understand why nothing had happened.

Watene-Zelezniak to join Wests Tigers immediately - Sporting News

Ivan Cleary's number one job was to pull the Tigers out of trouble and his recent signing spree is putting them in good shape for the future.

The club recently announced the re-signings of Luke Brooks and David Nofoaluma, who will be joined by Warriors prop Ben Matulino and Bulldogs five-eighth Josh Reynolds next season.

Now Cleary has turned to his old club and brought over Malakai Watene-Zelezniak, Dallin's older brother, who has granted an early release from the Panthers, according to Fox Sports' James Hooper.

What planet are the Tigers board on? - dailytelegraph.com.au

IF I were an off-contract NRL player looking to choose between the Wests Tigers and Newcastle Knights I know where I’d be heading.

At least Nathan Brown and Matt Gidley run a club where fans turn up in droves to cheer their

players despite the lack of success the Knights have had on the field in recent years.

Poor Marina Go. The Tigers chair either lives on a different planet to the rest of us, or has no understanding of just how frustrated Tigers fans must be feeling right now.

Go put her foot in it again on Monday when issuing a statement in response to the angry reaction of fans who booed skipper Aaron Woods before Sunday’s game against the Bulldogs.

Will this be Radradra's last game? - dailytelegraph.com.au

SEMI Radradra could play for the Eels for the last time on Friday should he be found guilty of domestic violence-related charges in court next week

And if there is one player who knows exactly what emotions Radradra would be feeling after fulltime in Townsville, it’s his Parramatta teammate Kirisome Auva’a.

Like Radradra, Auva’a was charged with domestic violence in 2014 and was eventually handed a nine-month suspension by the NRL.

Radradra is looking at a similar punishment should be found guilty of attacking his former partner Perina Ting.

Radradra has pleaded not guilty to two charges.

Wests Tigers target Warriors utility Tuimoala Lolohea as James ... - The Sydney Morning Herald

Wests Tigers have targeted Tuimoala Lolohea as the man to replace James Tedesco in a potential mid-season move that would allow Mitchell Moses to immediately shift to Parramatta.

The Tigers have wasted little time in replacing the departing members of the "big four", signing Warriors prop Ben Matulino as a replacement for Belmore-bound Aaron Woods and Josh Reynolds to fill the void left by Moses from next year. The joint-venture outfit still has the salary cap space required to find a suitable replacement for Tedesco at fullback and is making enquiries about the availability of another out-of-favour Warrior, Lolohea.

Wests Tigers shouldn't be in the NRL - The Roar

Wests Tigers are enjoying some positive media coverage for the first time in years with the signing of quality Bulldog half Josh Reynolds, and teak-tough Warriors prop Ben Matulino.

But Wests Tigers shouldn’t even be there thanks to one of the more recent shocking decisions by rugby league administrators.

The fact only Eastern Suburbs, aka the Roosters, is the only club to have played all 109 seasons since the code kicked off in 1908 says it all.

The other eight:

OFF-CONTRACT Bulldogs favourite Josh Reynolds has agreed to join the Wests Tigers on a massive four-year deal.

The deal is believed to be worth up to $950,000 a year and includes a car.
