Re: Who Improves in 2018

Given we had one of the weakest attacks in the competetion the last few years and the 3 blokes contributing to most of it are now gone,I think scoring points will be a very real issue for WT.Sure weve got replacements,but not quite at the same level in attack Throw in the fact we have a weak spine,a...

Re: Reynolds: "Nobody thinks they're better than anyone here"

Maybe we shld recruit Caitlain Jenner...?A real all rounder who can play most positions...?

Re: Reynolds: "Nobody thinks they're better than anyone here"

Having just invested in McQueen,a similiar sort of player to Lawrence but better,I think Lawrence wont make the 17.
Hes gotta leapfrog ET/McQueen/Else and Aloise...and IF theyre all fit cant I see it happening tbh
Just my opinion....

Re: Reynolds: "Nobody thinks they're better than anyone here"

Any prospect of Reynold becoming captain of WT just disappeared with these pretty average comments. He wld offer the same level of " leadership" as what weve had last coupla years...and WT deserves better..and needs better if we wish to move forward ET now odds on to have the c next to his name..whi...

Re: The Contenders: Hooker

Weve invested in Liddle and shld give him every opportunity to show what hes got.He cant play 80 mins atm as we all agree,but between ET in the backrow and Benji on the bench we have two really good backups to plug the gaps. Were not a big team by any stretch,and personally I just don't wanna squand...

Re: Pre Season Casualty Report

As I actually wrote the contentious comment re" accomplished",Ill have my say.. I think all 3 of Marsters/Milne and Suli are ..ahem.."accomplished",and all will be solid NRL players at worst. We cld choose any pair and I'm sure they'll do well,and most importantly will develop further under Clearys ...

Re: Pre Season Casualty Report

I'm not quite sure why we bought McQueen in the first place as we seem to have similar types in Lawrence and Taylor...who need to be complemented by one or more larger backrowers. Guess the deal was done before Clearys arrival...and before we knew of McQueens injury issues As for Suli,we have severa...

Re: What Car do you Drive..?

Had a laugh over the Alfa GT v6 and the Citroen...had the Alfa for a short period and it cost a bomb to run,,was almost Jaguar -like in that you had to have 2 of "em cause they were so unreliable.But when the Alfa was going,an absolute cracker with a beautiful exhaust note. Never had a Citroen,but a...

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

If either of our hookers cant do 80 minutes,lets not choose BOTH in the 17...Benji/Reynolds/ET are a better solution is my point

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

The LAST thing we need on the bench is ANOTHER hooker.....weve disadvantaged ourselves so often against the bigger teams with this strategy to our detriment and got rolled in last 20 minutest.That aint gonna change the game...just give someone a rest. But we can carry Benji at no 14 ..he can still c...

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

Cant leave Milne out of the starting 13 based on his RLWC performances...hes our most proven(vs" having potential") centre against quality opposition at this stage.

Re: Rank the Coaches

Cronks marriage last week suggests bellamys succession plan wasn't really "planned" at all...he just got lucky that one of his big 3 wanted out this year
Having said that,Bellamy gets "lucky"an awful lot more than most coaches!

Re: The Contenders: Five-Eighth

They struggle to talk up any reason that Pita Godinet should be picked other than, "will certainly provide great cover at fullback, hooker and either position in the halves". In other words if the bus crashes and 20 players are unavailable, he might get picked somewhere. I still cannot understand w...

Re: Teddy plans to end career at WT

Think the Taylor /Farah fiasco laid the platform for instability,the always doomed Broses combination fuelled the fire in not achieving team expectations,and a vindictive player manager who steered the naïve but opportunistic big 3 out of the club sealed the deal. As for him returning someday....a t...

Re: The class difference....

When yr at the game u can see the physical size difference..MW are a big team ,and are very physical 14-17 compared to us..when they stepped up the intensity around the 60 min mark by running harder,we had little left in the tank. Bozo has bought pretty well apart from the odd dud(who is now in Melb...

Re: Chris Lawrence...time to move him on ?

Lewis is outstanding..and much older than Lawrence.Freak
sadly Chris rarely breaks tackles these days,and the size of forwards coming thru in other clubs means hes a liability unfortunately..great guy and all.
We'll never do well with a sub 100kg back row(ET CLand McQueen)..just get smashed(as usual)
