Reports coming out of the magpies bunker is that they may still be alive but it looks like its in bundy cup. The wests tigers nsw cup team looks like it will be funded mostlly by wests campbelltown with Balmains former benefactor ryde eastwood leagues club coming on as a sponsor also. Wests ashfield argument was it could it afford to fund a wests tigers and wests magpies team hence why they pulled their funding for the magpies. Now with the wests tigers being funded by the clubs i mentioned it has alienated wests ashfield hence they have no excuse now not to fund a magpies side. Their is a bundy cup license available due to St Johns withdrawing.Unsure if wests will be in a feeder relationship with the wests tigers .

Heard from a reliable source that wests magpies are confirmed for bundy cup , has been approved by the board and even some funding from wests ashfield, Im sure new wests magpies chief steve reeves will be eager to get the ball rolling now there is some certainty.

Now time to find a ground with little overheads,coach and players.

Wests Tigers agree deal for NRL bail-out

The warring factions at Wests Tigers have declared peace after agreeing to a new independent board in exchange for NRL funding.

In a watershed moment that will be welcome news for concerned fans of the joint venture, Fairfax Media can reveal Balmain and Wests directors have agreed to a restructure in order to survive in the face of deep financial issues. The NRL has committed to loans during the restructure negotiations, based on the club meeting key targets.

It follows weeks of negotiations between the two parties after the NRL commissioned an independent report into the club's finances and governance in May.

While stressing the club was still under immense financial pressure, NRL chief executive Dave Smith is adamant the Tigers' future is now secure. ''There is now a deep commitment from all parties to make the joint venture a success and to give Wests Tigers fans and members the certainty they deserve,'' Smith said.

Balmain Tigers must raise $4m or suffer extinction from Wests Tigers joint venture

CASH-strapped Balmain have two years to raise $4 million — or suffer extinction from the Wests Tigers joint venture.

The Daily Telegraph can reveal the NRL’s multi-million rescue package is likely to carry a deadly ultimatum for both joint venture partners — Balmain and Western Suburbs — to re-pay their share of the money within two years.

While the Magpies faction are capable of complying thanks to the backing of Wests Ashfield Leagues Club, Balmain will need external support to maintain its stake in the NRL franchise. With their Rozelle Leagues Club development in deep freeze on Macquarie Street, Balmain officials concede there is little other option but to find a millionaire benefactor or petition diehard fans to donate money.

AFL namesakes, Richmond Tigers, ran a similar initiative in 2011 known as the ‘Fighting Tiger Fund’. It was able to raise $6 million from supporters within one year, and donations are still being sought to keep the club competitive in a crowded Melbourne market.

Billionaire Harry Triguboff expresses interest in buying Wests Tigers

Billionaire developer Harry Triguboff has revealed an interest in buying the Wests Tigers, believing his business nous could transform the joint-venture club into a winning outfit.

Triguboff has enjoyed a long association with Balmain and then Wests Tigers as a benefactor and sponsor. The club has found a new backer for 2016 but it won't necessarily spell the end of the relationship with Triguboff, who is rated by Forbes magazine as the 280th wealthiest individual on the planet. The 82-year-old feels a strong connection to Balmain after being introduced to rugby league through Dawn Fraser, but said any privatisation bid would be for the entire Wests Tigers entity.

The Tigers should sell up. Sugar Daddies = top 4 and premierships. No club without one gets close.

Game at Campbelltown tomorrow.

First afternoon game they have given the people of my area in probably 5 years (a guess, could be more honestly). Obviously Newcastle, considering their current position, isn't a big crowd puller, but I still want to see the people of Macarthur make an effort to get out to the ground and show that we deserve better treatment.

Balmain Tigers on the brink after more dramas at leagues club site

Foundation club Balmain could fold in five months after Leichhardt Council's attempt to rezone the dilapidated leagues club site on Victoria Road was formally refused.

The Balmain Tigers have a history spanning 107 years, it is one half of the Wests Tigers joint venture. And it was hoped the Rozelle Village site would provide the entity the financial lifeline required to survive. However, the Department of Planning and Environment has knocked back the proposal, meaning Balmain could disappear from the league landscape.
