    Will be lucky to survive as a joint venture IMO. Balmain part are just about gone.

    Where will they end up? The return of the Magpies? Perth Tigers? Completely disappear?

    I think they have reached out to Ricky Stuart?

      The room full of mirrors is where they should be heading.

      Their future is safe while ever they are Rothfields Sharks feeder team.

      Seriously these two teams along with Eels need moving on.

      Send them to Perth. Send the sharks to Adelaide.

      I reckon the Magpies will take over. They might keep the Tigers logo, but the Balmain side of the JV is done.

      Where are these "death notices" suddenly coming from?

      Two heavy defeats yes, but significant injuries are a big factor there.

      Not long ago they were winning games, in the 8, and showcasing plenty of exciting young talent.

      Unless there's massive financial problems I've not seen or heard about, the only serious problem I see is the tenure of Mick Potter surviving, or not.

      That said (and with relocation a very remote possibility, in my opinion) "where they go from here" is a matter of their end-of-season trip...And whether Potter is still around to be invited.

      Oh that's a great solution. Not funny.

      Agree with @MadMarcus that Wests will survive as they've got the dough. They just need new management.

      The last two losses can be attributed to Robbie "I'm the Best" Farrar.

        Like most teams, the tv deal nearly pays everything for thge clubs. They have Harry T as a backer so he won't let them go.

          I don't know but we'll have Aaron Woods and Martin Taupau they'd be handy.

          Just saying, Woods said he was a Manly fan when he was a kid.

            So was Sterlo mate (didn't ultimately matter).

            Of the 2 I'd actually prefer Tapau as well.

            Under Tooves and Donny he could get back to his Bulldog-form, or even better!

            I know all of these things are just fantasy-footy talk...

            We're flat-out paying and keeping all the blokes we've got.

              I'd take Marty in a heartbeat. He started the year well and at a descent club, would kick on!

              He could be Skivi's off-sider mate...

              The corn-row kids, with their hair, I mean!

                Balmain are in massive financial trouble from all reports and have no money to bring to the JV table. NRL have stepped in with their own cash and putting 2of their own board members in.
                The Magpies have cash to take over but the NRL wont let Balmain disappear, for some reason....Its a sh1t fight in the boardroom and not looking a getting much better short term....
                Hey Slothfield heres another scoop, Wests Tigers in fighting, players not talking to each other, coach not talking to players.......you could run with that EVERY WEEK for the next 20 years

                  Thank you for some clarification here @Frogz

                  I don't often pay great attention to all non-Manly clubs and their issues.

                  I would imagine the NRL would prop the JV up (or face a big backlash) if they don't, or try to relocate the club.

                  I'd put him in a Capra's jersey. Hahaha! Oh man...I'm a bit pissed!

                  GO MANLY!!!!
