For me the best way to go is to let TJ go, let Miller go if he really wants to join our rivals and use that money to replace Miller with someone good and keep Fifita and Batch.



He's a very naughty boy :)

Not too sure about Fifita, i dont think he is the player of a few seasons back. I believe we have had the best of him. However Batch I would love to hang on to for many different reasons. Now I do not know for sure but there seems to be many rumblings on the various grape vines and gossip sites, we have lost him. Real shame if true.

Batch has definitely gone.

TJ and Miller more than likely to gone but still playing a bit of a dance with the club.

Batch though has gone and has informed the club of his decision. In truth it was a miracle he signed his last deal with us so we probably got a bit more time out of him than we should have.
Unofficially the most boring poster on Cherry and White.

The pimp is a classic example of someone who writes the narrative to suit himself. If it’s positive news then basically it’s all part of the clubs huge lie. If it’s negative it’s immediately credible no matter how dubious the source.

Hence when things go well he never posts or posts disparaging comments. If it’s negative he posts quicker than a whippet on heat.


I at least don’t keep stating an already disproven statement because I do make positive posts when we win, even if this goes against your pre perceived narrative.

I have read many negative posts you yourself write, not much positivity on your part.

I actually do write the posts myself without any guidance unlike someone I can mention. I note you now want a good clear out of the existing squad, I presume you want all the money saved to be used to replace these players. The problem is that the team has bounced along for several seasons we may not even survive in SL after this one so where do these replacements come from. I regret a redeveloped ground will not immediately overcome our perceived shortcomings to any players.
I would ask your contacts what is going on, you never know they may actually tell you if they have a master plan but I doubt it because they really do appear to not know how to get us out of our current mess. I wonder how the majority of supporters not represented on the forum will feel if Fifita, Batchelor, TJ and Miller announce they have signed elsewhere, I doubt it will be oh good time for a clear out. If Lino and Tanginoa leave then your friends will need to confirm why, one would presume it is to receive a transfer and reduce the salary budget.

Do know what you could clear just about the full team for me they've hardly set the league of fire and done nothing to get out of the bottom for years

Time we became a selling club

Think it is about time fans faced up to the fact that if we play like we have done in the last two matches all players will be going .Never seen a Wakefield team so far of the pace.Playing J C at hooker again is not hellping, no we got no choice through injury but shows were we are

We have every choice. Bowes is playing well in the reserves and has played well when called up to first team. We should be leaving JC at 13. It’s lads like JC, Bowes, Batch, Murphy etc who will give their right arm for trinity to get a win I suspect.
Top six 2005 - Trinity.

Jacob Miller says the Wakey club will always be close ro his heart no matter what happens. He goes on to say that his 2 young children have been born in Wakefield so it's not going to be eraised from his memory.
WP xays Jacob will make a decision based on what's best for him, but he hopes he stays.
WP also says a club like Wakefield must stay within its budget.
O do the club value Jacob and are prepared to push the boat out a little to keep him in the red white and blue,
I hope so because any replacement will not come cheap.

A replacement might not come cheap , but with his , Johnstone n tupou’s wages getting weighed in I’m sure we can temp some quality into the fold
