Re: What are your thoughts on signing Robbie Farah back?

I have no problems if this comes to fruition however I still believe we need another decent hooker for 2019 and beyond. Still be convinced that Liddle can handle the rigors of week in, week out NRL.
Farah or Liccha, it would be Farah every day.

Re: Hooker position - Thread

I thought this position might come back and bite us. Throwing all your eggs into Liddle was not the answer until his body is NRL ready and can handle the weekly rigors or NRL. Therefore the below would be ideal: * Matt Parcels (Leeds) has had 2 great seasons with Leeds and playing week in footy with...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Here is my opinion - I like the Granville rumor. Good quality hooker to guide Liddle and provide competition. We lack quality in that department although I would try and get these 2 blokes if we could not get Granville - Adam Milner (Castleford - can play lock and hooker and is off contract) and Mat...

Re: Player and team stats from tonight

Rochow needs to start punching out some more metres and getting into good 1-1 position against smaller halfbacks etc....49m is not great. I actually dont mind him but our edge metres always seems to be a concern considering how many minutes they play.
Otherwise good spread of work across the team.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Tigers go cold on English recruit The outstanding form of youngster Esan Marsters has made Wests Tigers pull out of their bid to sign crack English centre Oliver Gildart. The current Young England Player of the Year, Wigan star Gildart was keen to come to the Tigers next season. Tigers recruitment ...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

You would have to say yes to Rona considering all the tries we are letting in through wingers from kicks. Rona is a big body type of winger which we dont really have. Adam Milner is just a workhorse type of player, actually a decent hooker and i think in a position we are lacking. I would happily sw...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Anthony Don and Anthony Gelling would do me out of the off contract players. I would also look at the possiblity of Jai field and Kurt Mann getting early releases. Both under utilised. Kurt Mann would be a massive signing. So strong, can play anywhere. Would be a great fullback given time and right...

Re: NRL Team Announcement: Round 8

Personally, I would drop Eisenhuth back to the bench (drop Sue) and promote Grant to starting side for the 1st 15-20min and tell him to go hell for leather. Eisenhuth can then do the job of Twal. I though Eisenhuth was ineffective last week even though he played big minutes. He is more effective on ...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Gildart is very good young center who would improve out of sight in the NRL. He is deceptively strong and very quick....would not take him much on salary to come over as he would only be on about £50k max in the Super League.

Re: What to do with Grubby?

5/8 for Benji. Benji has done a great job, but his last 3 games have been poor. Yesterday he at least mixed in some really good stuff with his bad, but there is still too much bad play from him. Reynolds at 6 for me. I agree mate once Reynolds fitness come along however we know Benji is rocks and d...

Re: Let's assume Tui gets stuck in reggies

Am very wary of the superleague. I remember superstars like Sam Tompkins, Joe Burgess and Jordan Rankin doing pretty average impressions of an NRL player. Sam Tomkins fair enough....Joe Burgess is a decent winger and Jordan Rankin was a bog average reserve grader in Oz and is still bog average. Lia...

Re: Let's assume Tui gets stuck in reggies

Never been a big fan of the guy. Lazy in defence...lazy attacker....average footballer (so shoot me). If you want a FB, get Jonny Lomax from St Helens who would fit in perfectly to our side. Otherwise, there is very few FB out there that you can go an grab although I do like the look of Tom Opacic ...

Re: Injuries

Grant and Sue have been playing well in reggies as has JJ. We are covered in that area that is why you have depth. Those 3 blokes will play out of their skins this week to get a start in the 17 if Packer is out.

Re: Referees and commentators

It is up to the players and coaches to adhere to the rules which have been around for ages. The 5 min sin bin needs to come into play esp defending your line. Good on the refs for the crack down as it will be better in the long run.
