    Martin Taupau reportedly about to leave. Rabbitohs and Titans interested.

    Rabbitohs will probably be his likely destination. Unless he has family on the Gold Coast.

    Wests Tigers have today announced the additions of forwards Rod Griffin and Billy McConnachie, as well as the re-signing of Jack Buchanan, as the Club continues to strengthen its playing roster for the 2016 season.

    Griffin and McConnachie will join the Club on one-year deals, while Buchanan has also re-signed on a one-year deal that will secure him at Wests Tigers until the end of 2016.

    Always liked Jack - but can't keep them all.

    Robbie Farah has been struck another blow in his bid to see out his contract at the Wests Tigers after Matt Ballin signed a two year deal with the club.

    Manly’s two-time premiership winning hooker has been on the outer since it first became clear Trent Barrett was taking over in 2016, with two young hookers Apisai Koroisau and Matt Parcell joining the club in recent months.

    Farrah now on the sights of a few Clubs - if Tigers are going to pay 50%. Dogs interested - can't see how re Cap.

    What is going on at this place. Now both of the young halves are being allowed to look around.

    Was watching a game on Fox yesterday - Wests winning - and the players they had then - now gone - is astonishing !

    Manager ploy?

    Don't rate Moses at all.

    Robbie Farah and Matt Ballin to miss the first month or more of the season due to injury.

    Matt Ballin still recovering from an ACL - unlikely to make his return before Round 10.

    Good signing, but wonder why he was on the outer at the Panthers. Poor attitude at training???

    Taylor (and I think Lewis Browne) followed Ivan Cleary from the Warriors to the Pennies.

    With Cleary no longer present as head coach at Penrith, you'd find yourself busting a gut just for that bloated dickhead Phil Gould, so why stay around that?

    Think of the way Darius Boyd jumps from one team to another. Is he following Wayne Bennett or not putting in at training (spoiler alert: It's definitely the former).

    Since Taylor got over his Benchy habit of throwing no-look passes into open space, he has been asset for each team he's played with especially for his high tackle count.

    Luke Brooks and Mitchell Moses have both signed contracts to remain at the Club in 2017.

    Be interesting how they juggle the books to pay out his humongously back ended contract. That is the trouble with back ended contracts like that they only move the fiscal problems further down the line but they are still there.
    His financials will at least be easier to sort out than Government debt:bag:

    Not a big fan of ditching coaches mid-season.

    It doesn't give the coach or the club a decent chance of quickly finding the next opportunity with the other clubs having settled for the season.

    Jason Taylor would have burnt a few bridges with the ousting of Robbie Farah - who is fitting in nicely at Souths - so immediate progress would have been needed to save Taylor's job.

    The Tigpies still have class players with Tedesco, Woods and Brooks etc, so their season isn't over just yet.
