Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Mbye would be a good fit at fullback - better than Holmes tbh. We lack creativity. Reynolds & Brooks project as our halves pairing for the next 2 years, they're ball runners & good in support play, not very creative. Mbye would give us a creative option at 2nd receiver that we lack (and tbh would be...

Re: Cleary - One Home Ground..

I actually think if we don't get the CoE at Concord, next step would be to redevelop the stadium itself, upgrade the stands and have it ready for NRL level. The Tigers are the inner west's team, and Concord is smack bang in the Inner West and a middle ground for both Balmain and Wests. Wests Ashfiel...

Re: Your Team v Gus's Riff..

I think we go unchanged. If anything, then as most have said Aloiai for Rochow just because he offers a lot more at his best. I really like Taylor starting the first 25-30 mins and Liddle taking the rest of the game. Liddle will be fresher than the middle third guys and will avoid a lot of the harde...

Re: Has anyone ever noticed Twals game face

Twal's important to us because every carry of his he gets us momentum or over the advantage line. I can't think of a game where he's averaged less than 8m a run, which is essentially the advantage once you get past it. You can't underestimate the value of a guy that can turn a set which is looking y...

NRL Scheduling

Just wanted to make a comment on this, but does anyone think we often cop the rough end of the stick when it comes to scheduling? Next week we're playing the Warriors in NZ. They played last night, we don't play until Sunday. They're at home and have a 10 day turnaround vs our 6 day turnaround. It's...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I wouldn't - it wouldn't be good for team morale. I mean it's one thing for a guy like Nofoaluma to bust his way into first grade at the expense of Lolohea - Nofa busted his ass off all off-season, showed he was a class above ISP and has been around the club for years. Plus Lolohea hasn't been good ...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I think they would compliment each other actually. Cleary's got pretty good organisational skills and is growing into a quality first receiver who can direct a team from first receiver and is an exceptional kicker and goal-kicker (which we badly need) while being an effective runner and passer too. ...

Re: Fullback Recruit

Lolohea's too unfit and frankly off the pace. He's no threat as a kick returner, no threat looming in support play and even though he's a good ball player at fullback, he can't do anything if he's not able to get outside his man and create overlaps. Until he can get his pace and fitness back, he'll ...

Re: Liddle

Liddle's coming off shoulder surgery for both shoulders. I can forgive him for missing some tackles. He reads the game amazingly well. What impresses me is that he knows 2-3 tackles in advance what he's going to be doing, especially when it comes to running the ball. He identifies good opportunities...

Re: Godinet.......

I don't know what McIlwrick really did wrong either? He's no world beater, but he's a solid defender with good line speed and even if not as effective as Liddle as a runner, can still do some damage.

Not a great player or person. Don't think he'd even be an upgrade over Tui to be perfectly honest.

Re: How do you fit Cleary in??

Brooks is a 5/8th. He plays his best football at 2nd receiver running and acting as a secondary kicking option. Cleary is a 7. It works.

I think McIlwrick starting with Liddle off the bench gives us more than Godinet --> Liddle.

McIlwrick is passable. I'd rather Liddle replace Godinet asap however.

Re: Eisenhuth and Twal. The new old school rotation.

Both have been exceptional finds. My only critique, and it's a minor one, is that Eisenhuth can at times be guilty of stunting our attack. His work as a ball playing prop is very good, but I find the ball often ends up in his hand and dies at inopportune times. That's about it though - both great de...

Re: Brilliant Brooks silences Storm

I would stop short of calling him brilliant, but defensively he's improved ten-fold and he's getting gradually better in attack. He's starting to get a lot better with his pass selection since there's been barely any of those hospital balls to Lawrence and he's starting to realise more and more that...

Re: Rowdy

A few of Lawrence's hit-ups really helped us out of our own end and that's what stood up to me. I think the timing with he and Brooks is finally starting to come together which is huge. The number of flat balls which Lawrence would knock on at the defensive line was frustrating. Now Brooks is giving...
