Re: Favourite Sayings

As my old gran dad used to say "You've got more front than Grace Bothers"
and when he would play a practicle joke on me he'd say, "You're about as hard to get as a salad sandwhich".
I still use them today.

Re: Robbie Farah dismisses suggestions he might leave the We

Even if it is true, so what. Farrah upset about missing a career highlight by getting some game time at a Wembly international. I can't blame him. But I think he's man enough to get over it. I think it just goes to show how professional Sheens is. A coach that is prepared to drop his own club's capt...

Re: Wests Tigers release Rob Lui

I think with Lui moving up to Nth QLD, it won't take long and he'll be in more trouble than Ned Kelly. sadly, I think he'll end up going from club to club and eventually be a talent wasted.

Re: would you take Todd Carney at the Tigers?

100%. Lui is as good as gone, no moltzen, and an old hard head father figure like Sheens to pull him into line. I think he would make a great addition. Move him in with Marshall so he can learn how to carry himself in public better and I think you would see him come of age at the Tigers.

Re: One thing I never understand

One thing I have taught the young bloke (10) from day one is to respect the other team and their supporters. They want their team to win just as much as we want to. Even when the crowd boo as the opposition run out, he claps as they run on. Then when our team run out its raptuous standing ovation. L...

Re: Will the tigers be stronger in 2012 than in 2011

I write this responsse trying to not let the dissappointment from Friday night have any effect but I don't think we will be a better team next season. I think we will see very much what we have seen the past 2 years. Large periods of the season where there will be a lack of patience, inability to cl...

Re: Seriously shattered

That 2nd half was very very ordinary indeed. The little bloke sobbed all the way home. Tiges reverted back to their old selves with dumb decisions on the 5th or woeful kick. Who thinks Marshall was injured early on and then carried it for the rest of the game ?

Re: DO NOT take this game lightly

warrior offloads will be our downfall. Tigers don't react well when the man they're tackling gets a ball away to a speedy smaller man.

Re: luke burt

I just can't see why we would want Burt. So far we have signed backs in Grant and Reddy. We already have two of the NRL's best centres in Lawrence and Ayshford a dual international in Tiquiri on one wing and a fast improving finisher in Ryan on the other. A waste of dollars in my opinion. (or as the...

Re: DO NOT take this game lightly

To faulter now is just not good enough and I think that is exactly what the players will be thinking. To have gone through all that mid season garbage of rumour and innuendo and then to ban together as a playing unit and win these games to get this close, they will see failure as not being an option...

Re: Is Stosur any chance against Williams

Just watched the match. Sensational. I loved listening to whoever the female commentator was prior to the match getting under way. She was asked how Stsur could match it with Williams and she basically said, she couldn't. How weak was some of the crowd and Williams entourage. Poor form for tennis wi...

Sorry, but I just have to say it again, HOW GOOD WAS LAST NIGHT. That second half was electric. Everytime I saw the news tonight I was still jumping around the place.

Re: A good headache for Sheens to have

I don't think Payten should be picked. Great player but no where near the level he needs to be to run with the rest of the team at this time. I would love to see Fifita back in the mix but you have to ask why he hasn't been getting a look in the past few months ???? Lawrence in, Utai out. Otherwise ...
