Re: Moses Suli

so many posters talk about people like suli 'needing to learn a lesson', 'make him lay bricks for a year...'. a lot of people have absolutely zero understanding of what are obviously some serious mental health issues. this seems to me to be something that is being dilated because it seems every sec...

Re: "NEVER WAS"

as good as he was, i have to agree with Gareth Ellis. it was only ever going to be a few years to see if he could make it in the nrl. the tigers were just lucky they got him because he definitely showed his class in the nrl... no knock on his loyalty, but ellis fits the bill. anasta is a definite. o...

Reynolds was signed to play 5/8 and long term that’s where he will play.

Re: Reynolds to Hooker - Permanently

so far from what i have seen of him at dh it looks like his passes are just too slow. most dhs will zip the ball out from the ptb and with him there he still seems to pass like a 6. i'd like a quicker transition of him into 6 and not yet buying into him being dh much at all. i guess this can be fixe...

Re: Chee kam

Manly reserve grade? Only made grade there five times. Didn't know that. I must have caught one or two of his games and he did well in them and made an impression on me that had me glad he was coming to the tigers. Whatever the case, the point is up until this week my (misguided?!) expectations of ...

Ummm happy tiger and Geo, you think little ole MCK still cant Handle more then a good 15 or 20 mins? He is without doubt our best l...

Re: Why so much hate for Benji ?!- Our forwards are getting smashed

only half way through this thread, but has anyone posted that maybe the reason the forward pack lacked any punch is because they were buggered by having to defend so much because of the attack turning over so much possession with mistakes and chipping on the first tackle 15m out? as for the thread t...

Re: Val Holmes

id love them to sign Holmes! i think the way our team is set up these days he would be just what the team needs. its a pity Tui just hasnt seemed to take his chance, as i really thought he would be great. thompson has been really good, but i would still love Holmes at fullback and Thompson on the wi...

Re: Wests Tigers release ANOTHER jersey

I'm okay with special one-off jerseys, especially if it supports a cause. We used to do a special one once a year, and that's all cool. But each week now we are wearing some new fan-dangled jersey. Now our actual home-and-away jerseys seem to be our special jerseys! It's too much. :lol: pun intende...

Re: Tyson Gamble

i think Gamble is a great player. from what i have seen (few foxtel ISP games) he is a real stand out and a class above that grade. its a testament to the depth the club has that he isnt the starting 6 and also to how well Benji has been playing. Reynolds' cameo at dummy half also indicates to me th...

Now I can see what IC means when he talks about the team. Although some of our players were off, others lifted to carry them home. Best game I have seen Rowdy and Brooks play for a long time. Unbelievable.
So UC IC?! 😆

Re: Not giant killers... GIANTS.

I texted this exact same thing to my dad just before the game Friday night: "I'm so sick of hearing everyone calling the tigers giant killers." This is a new season. If a team has been poor the previous year/s is irrelevant. Sure, it's a reputation earned over a sustained period and human nature to ...
