Axe looms as Wests Tigers sign Test captain

Axe looms as Wests Tigers sign Test captain Wests Tigers have reportedly beaten Parramatta to Dallin Watene-Zelezniak, and big names are on the chopping block.

The Trump administration intensified its focus on Iran Sunday as the likely culprit behind attacks on important Saudi Arabian oil facilities over the weekend, with officials citing intelligence assessments to support the accusation and President Trump warning that he was prepared to take military action.

An irreparable rift with prop Russell Packer is reportedly a major reason why Wests Tigers coach Michael Maguire is poised to immediately sign Parramatta stalwart Tim Mannah.

Packer is carrying a hip complaint and has not been sighted in first grade since round six amid strong suggestions that he and Maguire don't see eye-to-eye.

The tough front-rower was understood to be extremely bitter about Ivan Cleary's departure from the Tigers and clashed with Maguire when he took the reins.

Until, suddenly, in 1895 the sport of rugby found itself in turmoil . The public schools were losing control as the working men of the north prepared to break away and form a new code. A month before the great split, a committee of Old Rugbeians finally decided to get to the bottom of just whose game this was.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blamed Iran at the weekend, prompting Tehran to accuse the US of deceit. Tweeting on Sunday, President Donald Trump stopped short of directly accusing Iran, but suggested possible military action once the perpetrator is known.

Maguire is renowned for conducting unrelenting pre-season training sessions and Packer is said to have challenged the hardened mentor's methods over the summer.

The pair's relationship has apparently only deteriorated since, with The Daily Telegraph journalist Dean Ritchie revealing they are no longer on speaking terms.

According to Ritchie, Mannah's expected arrival only confirms that Packer and fellow New Zealand international forward Ben Matulino are not in Maguire's plans.

"What it does clearly show to me is that Ben Matulino and Russell Packer are on the nose big time at Concord," Ritchie told the Big Sports Breakfast.

"For the fact Michael Maguire has brought in a 31-year-old veteran [Mannah] and virtually told him that he's above the other two, who are languishing with injury and in reserve grade.

Reynolds' blunt answer to exit rumours

Reynolds' blunt answer to exit rumours Josh Reynolds has given a blunt, honest response to reports that his name is high on the list of players the Wests Tigers are keen to get rid of.

1. Michael Perham, a teenage boy from the south of England, became the only person to sail across the Atlantic alone. 2. Michael started his voyage across the Atlantic when he was seven. 3. The Cheeky Monkey is a 9-metre yacht which was designed for the cross-Atlantic.

Speaking to the Mail on Sunday, Mr. Johnson said that he would ignore Parliament and refuse to seek an extension if there is no agreement. Mr. Johnson will meet with Prime Minister Xavier Bettel of Luxembourg after lunch with Mr. Juncker and then speak to the press later on Monday.

"Packer and Maguire have fallen out ... They virtually, as I understand, don't talk.

"Both [are] very strong-willed personalities."

And Ritchie believes there is little hope of Packer and Maguire reconciling.

"As we know, if you're off with Madge, you're off with Madge and there's not a whole lot you can do to come back into the good books," he said.

Packer is reportedly on close to $700,000 a season with a contract that runs until the end of 2021.

But while Maguire might be keen to offload the 29-year-old early, Ritchie believes Packer will dig his heels in – even if he has to play reserve grade.

"A bloke close to Packer yesterday told me he's not going anywhere. He said, 'This bloke's been in jail – he won't be intimidated by Madge Maguire'," Ritchie said, referencing Packer's 12-month stint in prison for assault.

"If he's on 700 [thousand], he'll just sit there and cop his 700."

Rumours abound that Maguire is set to put the broom through Concord, having inherited a team largely assembled by Cleary.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo directly blamed Iran for what he said was “an unprecedented attack on the world’s energy supply.” The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.

When the Green Bay Packers needed a big offensive play after stalling out on their first three drives Week 1 against the Chicago Bears, Aaron Rodgers tossed the ball to someone the star quarterback he trusted. No, not Davante Adams — though he is still very much the Packers ’ receiving star.

Packer, Matulino, Josh Reynolds and captain Moses Mbye are among the names claimed to be on the outer.

"[Maguire's] got about $3 million of players who aren't performing," Ritchie said.

"It's a mess at the moment, their roster and salary cap."

Maguire attempted to cool chatter about a cleanout at the club when he spoke to media on Wednesday.

"You'll always have discussions around your list but those boys have contracts, so at the end of the day they are contracted with this club," Maguire said.

"There are others off contract, so there'll be chatter around that too. It's part of the arena we live in.

"For me, if we apply ourselves and the players put themselves and the team in a good position then all this chatter goes away.

"I don't see it [unrest in the squad]. If you come to our training sessions, you'll see this team evolve and grow.

"I've been around for a while and if they keep up some of these high standards on the training field, it'll transfer to the park."
