Listened to Richo interview in SEN

And Benji coach presser

 

Very impressed with both of them

You can tell that Richo has been mentoring Benji 

 

Interestingly it's reported that Richo has said to Galvins parents that he'd get more support for Benji

Wests Tigers CEO lashes Fox Sports over coverage

A fired-up Shane Richardson has taken aim at the NRL's broadcast partner, Fox Sports, claiming the network's coverage of Wests Tigers is riddled with "lies and innuendo".

Speaking at a members' function prior to Saturday's 18-10 win over Gold Coast at Leichhardt Oval, the Tigers chief executive went on the offensive.

In a five-minute address, the Tigers boss hinted that teenaged five-eighth Lachlan Galvin was being manipulated to get out of the club by his manager.

But he saved his most pointed criticism for Fox Sports' flagship NRL360 program and its sister newspapers for their coverage of the Tigers.

"Nobody is going to knock us off course because of nine losses or because of b***t in the paper," Richardson said.

"Or the b***t on 360, nothing makes a difference to the way we think in planning for this club to be great again.

"When you get 360 deciding how to run your club, or 360 deciding how you recruit or 360 or the (Daily) Telegraph deciding how your club goes ... that's why we've won two wooden spoons (in a row)."

Richardson savaged NRL360 for criticising Danny Stapleton, a Tigers director who chairs the club's recruitment committee.

Tigers boss Richardson has spent the last few weeks attempting to reshape the club's roster by offloading players to rival NRL clubs and Super League sides.

 
 

"I've come from the bottom with South Sydney, Cronulla, Hull FC in England and here, but I've never seen the (level of) vitriol delivered to us through Fox," Richardson said.

"It's based on absolute lies and innuendo.

"What they did last week with Danny Stapleton was nothing short of disgraceful, a terrible way of painting somebody who is defenceless."

Richardson also reflected on the conjecture surrounding 18-year-old Galvin, who this week reaffirmed his commitment to the Tigers after his manager reportedly issued the club with multiple release requests.

The Tigers chief executive said he wanted the club's hard-line stance over the teen to be a line in the sand.

"This club, for too long, has been driven by the press and managers - they decide who your coach and who your recruiter is - and it stopped this week," Richardson said.

"Lachlan Galvin had no wish or want to leave this club, his parents are steeped in the culture of the Tigers.

"I can assure you once we got to the core of it all, there was no question mark about where Lachlan Galvin wants to play - and that's here."

Reading today about next years home ground allocations being 4 home grounds in Sydney has the petition and change in governance done anything to change the identity or rectify the clubs determination to continue dividing the supporter base ! There is obviously something happening at the COE as players come from other clubs with high expectations then turn into plodders now  a CEO comes to the club with high expectations and now giving the supporters 4 home grounds in the same city IMO he to is turning into a plodder ! 4 home grounds are you serious 😂😂😂 Then add the magic round that’s 5

He would be an outstanding buy. 

 

Duncan is tough, fast, mobile and skillful. A player that is going to be very good. However why 2026? Surely Souths haven't given him permission to negotiate early.

 

If we can't get Duncan then I'd live to secure Jack Williams. Quite similar player but already NRL hardened.

Thanks @TigerSteve

 

I was hoping Richo was going to provide an update on the club and where we are heading 

- where are we at appointing board members???

- update on roster for this year - do we need 29 signed by end of August?

- update on coaching staff - Richo said to Galvin he want going to get more support for Benji

- are we going to have a Football Manager?

- why are we playing Magic Round as a home game?

No we don't, you can include players who are no longer at the club.
