Re: Honest assessment on 2018

Well the right conditions seem to have been created they seem a happy bunch in the moment lots of depth. Ivan seems to have recruited to give Brooks a chance witb plenty of go forward and mentoring and he may play McQueen to cover him and I feel that we will be competing every game something that ha...

Re: Moses Suli

Won't be missed imo. Thought he would break the line more often but slow off the mark and seemed to be easily tackled for a big guy. Didn't seem to be a good reader of the play.
For what we paid him Jac then is worth 1.5m a season.

Re: Who Improves in 2018

Agree with most of what's said, and thinking the way Cleary has structured team it's all about giving Brooks as much space and defensive back up as possible. Also really like Milne,watched him closely through WC and he looks a classy player with little subtle changes in pace and direction which will...

Re: Cleary's - "back to the future" prediction ?!

Think it means many things on many levels. A blending of our history and a team wanting to be part of tbat culture. Probably a really tough side teams don't want to play against. Benji s return and the occasional off the cuff moment. Hearing everone speak I'm excited. They all seem reset on one leve...

Re: Our immediate future

I'm excited.
We are a happy club happy with our connection to the past and all the players seem rooted in the present with open expectations.
Plenty of depth and should have plenty of go forward.

That a really good start.

Re: What it means to be Wests Tigers..

I'm really excited actually. Wirh Cleary bring team and club together a good finish to last year against top 8 sides and the new signings but more than anything impressed by what I saw during WC from Twal, Lolohea,Kev and especially Milne and also from Eisenhuth thrpugh year. Plenty of depth and cla...

Re: What it means to be Wests Tigers..

I still find it kind of surprising that new players might not know or buy into the Wests and Balmain history, but I suppose it hearkens back to something I said the other day, that the kids being signed to the team now as juniors weren't even born before the JV. I agree with you. The combined histo...

Re: Daily telegraph at it again

Geez that woman in the article wasn't shy when it came to details, saying that her son was conceived with Bodene while another bloke was watching on..............I just hope he was onside and stayed outside the 10. A late flop over the top would be a definite sinbinning in that instance. True. But ...

Re: Daily telegraph at it again

Just read the Chris smith And Mel mcglaughlans comments, to say that Rugby League has a problem, is either to suit an agenda, or they are very Nieve. It's also a society thing, as the same thing is happen ing ( group sex) most nights at nightclubs, or after a night out. When my son was playing in t...

Re: John Dallas Donnelly 1955-1986

Dallas was the ultimate team man, loved by all but hated by Manly. I was at Lidcombe Oval in 1986 for the first home game of the year against Penrith and they had his jersey on a chair near the sideline. I think the whole crowd was crying when the Magpies ran past his jersey and touched it. Still l...

Twal

This guy really looks like a pro. Seems to always make 10m minimum saw himm make many good tackles on Hess near the line and hard to get down.
Reckon he and Eisenhuth will love running after Packer and Matulino next year and so will we.

Re: Um.. How did we lose that?

Truth is no point in risking Brooks and JT if semi fit as the Cowboys done with many of their players tonight with our position. However reckon if either played we win. Just can't have an inexperienced team missing key positional players and somehow going forward the club and players must learn to p...
