Re: Oliver Clarke

NYC team of the year is a pretty solid predictor of a future FG career, most of the kids do transition to firsts. E.g. that 2016 team, most of them have made the transition except funnily enough for Clarke and the halfback: Kalyn Ponga (Cowboys), Gideon Gela-Mosby (Cowboys), Robert Jennings (Panther...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Mann has the same problem as a guy like Tui - potentially a really good footballer but not a knock-out in any single position IMO. Yeah he's really strong for how skinny he is, but he's still skinny. Dragons obviously want to find a spot for him in the side, but struggle to work out exactly what tha...

Re: Rumour - Mahe to Debut

Fonua is pretty quick in my opinion? Maybe not long-distance speed but quick enough off the mark, quicker I think laterally than Nofo?

Re: Matt Eisenhuth

i feel Eiso has been a bit down the last couple of weeks but he's still in our best 17 I agree he's lost a little spring in his step. My only real concern with his game is the vigour if his hitups, I wish he'd run a bit harder into the line. He's a big unit and if didn't hit up as slowly, he'd be a...

Re: Eels side to take on Wests Tigers

Prob is T-Rex can only play 20 mins.

Parra have a team that can wins games but lets also not forget that they managed their first win against arguably the most disrupted club in the comp.

Re: Josh Mansour

I watched 100% Footy for the first time last week, can't stand that Neil Breen. I don't know if Gus looks at him with contempt every week, but I could understand why. What a peanut. He used to be the program manager for the TODAY show? Ruan Sims on the other hand, what a great ambassador for the gam...

Re: Jason Clark

Jason Clark is terrible and half the size of most props. Worst prop I’ve ever seen actually. Worse than Matt Parsons and as you all know, I refused to watch any game in which he played. Didn't know Matt Parsons even played league, I thought he was a cook on telly. Does he lose the scarf when he pla...

Where is the signing was coming that ink was telling us about
I believe it was entirely a sarcastic comment and not a real signing.

Re: Nofo Must Do His Time

So are you telling me you should trust the system, but if there is a breakdown in the system, you should still trust it? It he stays on his man they would have still scored. When you're Nofa, you're damned if you do and damned if you don't. You have a point, if the system is for everyone to come in...

Re: Jason Clark

I would say we've already bought enough workman-type forwards, the club depth is evident already. If you are to spend the remaining funds, you want to add some more quality IMO. A guy like Marty Taupau or RFM would be good. Jason Clark would honestly spend half his career at Tigers in reserve grade ...

Re: Nofo Must Do His Time

He could have made different choices, but it seemed, as all wingers are taught, that he was simply following his half and centre inside him. Wingers are taught to stay on their man and trust the man inside to cover the space. Pretty stupid to trust the inside man to cover the space when they have a...

Re: Nofo Must Do His Time

So I'd say in review: #1 Benji commits to the dummy, forces Marsters to come in on Ponga, Nofo burst out for Ross and Ponga picks it. Perhaps Nofo can stay out and let the cover take the centre. So I'd say Benji causes the main problem but Marsters and Nofo manage to take nobody, i.e. you need to b...

Re: Reynolds commentating

I'd rather a pro-Tigers person in the media commentating than some of the other idiots they've got going around. Reynolds is injured and so long as he does his rehab and trains, it is good for him to get this exposure, and as people have noted, quite possibly part of the TPAs involved in supplementi...

Re: Eliajah

Because he can make 50 tackles and stay on for 80 mins, HIAs notwithstanding. If we want to retain comp-leading defence which means multiple men into every tackle, good line speed and scramble for 80 mins, you need long-minutes backrowers who van mop up all game. That's why we started Rd1 with Taylo...
