Re: Good News?

Yep we were favourites with a rookie fullback and a halfback that played fullback for most of last year, Makes sense to me. NOT

Re: Where does Sheens rank Brown ??

Brown is a good solid player, He does everything asked of him in the positions he plays, He doesn;t do anything wrong he just doesn;t do enough to warrant consideration in any one position, Sorry to say but Imo he is only a depth player nothing more nothing less, though I do like him as player.

Re: Wests Tigers plan to play Tim Moltzen at halfback

Let,s not forget Moltz was our first choice HB way back in 09, and most were fairly happy about it then, untill injury took it,s toll on his career, which then opened the door for Lui. I would be pleased to see him get first crack at the @7, thus making it his own. Let,s see what happens?.

Re: How do you see Sheens using Bell

Bell is a great no nonsence defender, The games I have seen, He seems to be everywhere hunting down someone to tackle, Nice old school prop, Even down to the black boots and unkept hair, Sorta like Skando except the hair bit.

Re: Knee reconstructions

My father had a knee recon in the sixties and still cant bend his knee, although he tells me very little pain in it now,Though some of his mates from back then who had the op and can bend their knee are still in pain, I know this is along time ago but just thought I would let you know out of interest.

Re: Books on Wests Tigers...???

Forever brothers is a great read plus a great momento of that classic year, also take it to the home games and possibly get the signatures of the five players that are still with us from that year, but hurry cause Gibbsys movin on.
