Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I agree with others that this thread is particularly frustrating and, at times, tedious while at the same time strangely adictive.... To be honest, I would much rather a separate thread for each rumoured player, not this 1100 page marathon. Why do we have one gigantic thread and does anyone agree wi...

I have another signing suggestion, what about Tommy Makinson? Golden boot winner, good finisher, good defender, and has more pace than Nofoaluma and Thompson.
Yes, why not? Apparently, he wants to test himself in the NRL and we have a tradition of successful Englishmen.

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

Not sure where you have been during all of this, but if you don’t believe that there was a continuos barrage of different theories by all the so-called journalists , commentators, and the public. You must have been off the Planet, Brent Read has ran so many guesses that he must have had trouble in ...

Re: First look at Concord Oval revamp

Excuse my ignorance everyone but I am a little confused. The Canada Bay Council and State government are combining to build a new centre of excellence on the old Concord Oval site. This will be a multi-purpose facility with provision for football, club Rugby and the Wests Tigers training facilities....

Re: Slater Decision Another Weak One

Role model and ornament to the game imo he is not. Maybe the best full back in the past ten years, maybe not - I won't go into that. I was referring to his recent work ethic, professionalism and affability when talking with the media. Earlier in his career he was a total pain in the butt with his m...

Re: Slater Decision Another Weak One

I think hero is a strong term for a player that holds themselves above the rules and has no respect for his opponents. Milks penalties, dives to get blokes sent to the bin, uses his boots (and studs) to kick out at players while taking a kick or trying to prevent them scoring. I can think of a few ...

Re: Slater Decision Another Weak One

Do you know what? This decision reminds me of the Serena Williams fiasco. No, Slater hasn't behaved like a complete tosser or thrown a racket. However, in both instances public opinion won and in both instances the people governing the game were howled down in favour of propping up a hero.

The NRL dropped the ball a long long time a go.

Its nothing to do with Slater its to do with making knee jerk reactions and changing the rules on the run.

They got caught out again.
Exactly.

Slater Decision Another Weak One

I'll probably get howled down here but, to my way of thinking, the NRL has dropped the ball regarding the Slater shoulder charge decision. Firstly, I believe Slater to be an outstanding fullback, possibly the best the game has seen. I also think he has become a real role model and ornament to the ga...

Re: Ryan Matterson

I must admit I couldn't recall anything spectacular about him but the highlight package shows that he definitely has a good skill set. We just hope that he comes with his A game and doesn't become another disappointment.

Re: What a mismatch

I thought it was a bit of both. We didn't get up in their faces in defense and dropped the ball which presented them with 70% possession which they used to smash us. In the latter stages we gave up.

Re: Twal's a Beast

I'm of the older generation and still don't understand why when someone does something OK, and not even special, that they are suddenly a BEAST. Really? Firstly, that run to set up the Mbye try was special. Secondly, he's the best metre eater in the Tigers team. Thirdly he appears to be made of gra...

3, 2, 1

In a game where I thought the opposition provided the best two players on the field (Tom T and DCE), I reckon our best three were;
3 points - Alex Twal
2 points - Chris Lawrence
1 point - David Nofualuma
Honourable mentions to Sue, Chee-Kam and Fonua

Twal's a Beast

I really think Twal was a beast tonight and the Tigers' best player. I like the way he runs hard and straight, rarely taking a backward step, while his barnstorming run, that set up the Mybe try, revealed the amount of potential he has. Also, does anyone notice the number of times he snuffs out the ...
