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...

Re: WESTS TIGERS WANT ENGLISH CENTRE

I can also remember another bloke called Gary Schofield who also was a pom and played in the centres when he first went to the tigers. If this bloke is half as good as him I would take him in a heartbeat. I was thinking the same thing about his time at Wests. The black pearl got the headlines, but ...

Re: Nofo Must Do His Time

On this topic, surely Cleary will do his HW and make the right decision - he is obviously a good coach. If he keeps Nofo, we can understand he feels the D was a bigger-picture failure and will work on it with all players. If he drops Nofo, he would feel Nofo has failed at some key indicator. Being a...

Re: Worst performance this season

I was wondering what people thought about the defensive tactics last night? I noted in the Nofo thread that we seem to be sliding less than we were in the previous rounds? Certainly last night there was a lot of up-and-in defensive structure, perhaps purposefully against the Knights, but it wasn't w...

Let's have a look at these tries then, rather than trying to remember.

Re: Live game thread: Contains spoilers

Tough one to call. I thought the Knights were the better side, yet we did fight really well in second half to overcome the deficit quite rapidly and take the lead. We failed to hold onto the lead because our middle and RHS weren't tight enough. Really you won't win many games with 50 MTs and that wa...

Re: HIA

If you do any of that stuff you'd need an independent doctor for all head assessments and management.

I do agree it's becoming more and more of an issue, if you collect a bloke and force him off, you go on report perhaps but the ongoing match you are advantaged if he cannot return.

Re: Reading our own press

Honestly no I don't think the side are ahead of themselves. You just can't keep up the intensity we've had for every game in 24 rounds, just not possible. Winning 5/6 is terrific; dropping a game by 2 pts and not playing well is inevitable... the upside is we only lost by 2 and were in the game the ...

Re: Nofo Must Do His Time

Tough one. Certainly the RHS made some defensive errors tonight as a team, and Nofo was on the receiving end with his man crossing 3 times. I would say, regardless of decision making, if a guy like Ken Sio scores 3 tries on you, you've had a bad night. Thing about Nofo, he's the common thread in a t...

Re: Knights used HIA for Pearce Pec injury

Super obvious it's not an HIA. Pearce reels out of the Marsters tackle clutching his pec and goes straight to the sideline, no head collision at all.

Not a bad loss, if it's our worst, then the next goal is to keep it our worst loss for the rest of the season.

Re: Round 7 spoilers

I am not sure wasn’t this similar to the one we scored against Dragons in 2011 finals when Benji appeared to drop the ball but it came off his boot to deflect as a kick and was awarded but I could be wrong Yeah, from memory this one bounced up a bit and barely grazed his ankle or shin. I was surpri...
