I wouldn't be surprised if that is the case (getting a lot of their info off fan forums). It just reads better to say "sources indicate" or "my sources have told me" rather than CompletionRate saw Cleary in New Zealand at the popular holiday destination Mt Maunganui and had a few beers with him while teasing him about his future.That's my thinking as well, hell every signing we have had since Big Jim arrived has been completely off the radar and the announcement has been the first mention. I'll stick with my belief that half these guys get their info from fan forums.
**No offence intended CompletionRate you are just the most recent example.
Our club is isolated from the Sydney media and now that Elliott has gone the Mole isn't getting anything leaked and we have a CEO who either shoots down rumours or keeps his hand hidden until a signing is formalised. At the moment our best bet is to wait until Doyle has moved his chess pieces into place or what guys on here get from people they now or the horses mouth.
The media is still pushing the Cleary signing as a coaching change. Like others have mentioned chances are it is for another role and most likely another case of the media being wrong with rumours about our club or sticking to their guns with previous statements.
On the Gavet rumour. How good is it to read our recruitment being stunning. Previous years would most likely be described as disappointing, mixed, reasonable etc.
The competition up front is going to be great. Hopefully an end to seeing our pack bullied; or if they do get bashed we make some changes and the replacements take their opportunity.
