Re: Few Quick thoughts from the Trial

On Tyson Gamble - I must say that I am a Tyson Gamble fan. I watched his development for Redcliffe last season and all up here in Queensland were impressed with his attitude, skill and temperament. He is a guinine 5/8 who takes the ball to the straight and challenges defenders and a good support pl...

Re: Wests Tigers v Cowboys trial match *LIVE,,

Foxsports headline saying that Reynolds starred for the Tigers...I hope he is just what we need in this team to take us towards finals footy....early days yet but there is plenty of promise being shown so early by many... Thats not how i saw it. I wasn't impressed with Reynolds at all. He did some ...

Re: Few Quick thoughts from the Trial

Milne took one and it was a shocker. Gamble would presumably be our 2nd or 3rd best kicker (including Marshall) but presumably didnt kick as he is not likely to play a lot of firsts, particularly at the start of the year. My thoughts generally. I was impressed by Felise and Mikalale (spelling). Reyn...

Re: The 'other' Watene-Zelezniak set to roar for Wests Tigers

I as hoping to hear that MWZ had dropped some weight. Felt he was playing too big last year and that it hindered his speed. Will be good to see how he goes playing lighter.

Re: Tigers interested in RTS

Brooks to hooker - Nooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!! Not a good enough defender. What is wrong with Liddle?????? I don't see the point of Brooks at hooker but this is an interesting one, re his defence. My view, possibly controversial, is that it is generally easier to defend in the guts as you big men on...

Re: Moses Suli

I am very disappointed. A young player having a bad attitude whilst injured is not entirely surprising. I wonder whether they could have waited until he had recovered and given him time to assess whether his attitude improved. Obviously we are not privy to all the details. So, in some ways, we just ...

Re: Lolohea

Only 100% physical fitness will get him to be where he wants to as a quality first grade fullback. He needs to be the fittest guy at the club. I really enjoyed his performances last year. However the extra baggage needs to go if he wants to make the most of his ability. He could be well on the way ...

Just saw Kyle Lovett on the new Lowes add with Paul Sironen

Things must be desperate for the young bloke :P
He has been in that advertisement for at least 6 months.

His real new job is playing in the UK. Not bad getting paid to live in UK and play a bit of footy.

Re: Wests Tigers strengthen position in Macarthur region..

For all you pro Balmain whingers - the original agreement when the joint venture started was that Wests and Balmain would maintain a team in the highest comp under NRL. Sheens destroyed that agreement when he convinced the board that all the Wests State Cup players should be included wit h BRET to ...

Re: Wests Tigers strengthen position in Macarthur region..

Can I ask our Macarthur friends if the actual mascot will give you more incentive to follow a team or not? I'm not originally from either of our founding regions so am somewhat impartial but I just can't see how having two different identities within the same club as being of any real benefit to an...

Re: Addo Carr signs with Storm...

The story I heard from multiple reliable sources is that in 2015 JAC was told by the Storm they wanted him but wouldnt play him in first grade in 2016. They suggested he get a 1 year contract elsewhere and they would seek to sign him in 2017. He never had any intention of staying with us for more th...

Re: Corey Thompson is #OnTheBus in 2018

It's the Tigers official twitter account. Unlikely to spread misinformation about themselves you'd think. I think this is a reference to the fact that the club already announced it. In response to Geo, my guess is the club is simply trying to keep fans excited in the off-season by talking up the ne...

Re: Player and Team stats from tonight

Twal has been getting around 40 minutes per game, a bit down tonight but Woods played plenty. Not sure if he needed to as Twal and Ava didn't get a lot. Tonight showed that Sue doesn't have the same impact on the edge as he does in the middle. The more I see of Marsters, the more I see him as one o...
