Re: Luke Brooks

Big bucks for Brooks The Wests Tigers have tabled halfback Luke Brooks a $2.7 million three-year offer as the club looks to out-bid rival suitors poaching the local junior. Via foxsports Imo $900,000 a year is a bit high for Brooks. Whats he on now $550,00 you would think he would be happy with $75...

Why can't we do this, why can't we just do that. I'm sure the club has good reasons.
Absolutely! Throwing stones and/or getting frustrated when you're on the outside making assumptions achieves nothing.

The club doesn't want it's every move played out in the media - good on them!

Poor Woodsy can't catch a break can he. The guy is cursed. If flanagan gets sacked, the new coach will be his 6th since the start of 2017. No stability.
It is what it is Aaron!

Re: Tyson Gamble

From what I saw in reserve grade, he looked a good young player. Very good kicking game. Very good in attack when he had an older head (Drinkwater) next to him. Defence needs work and overplayed his hand when asked to run the side. By that point our ISP side was threadbare and had no go forward and...

Re: Wests Tigers 2018 season in a nutshell

Lawrence scored seven meat pies. Been a while since he's scored that many in a season. Well done Rowdy. He is really one of the best backrowers I've seen at isolating smaller defenders with the lines he runs. Another big plus for him was the way he chased kicks for tries this year. I hope he doesn'...

Re: Wests Tigers 2018 season in a nutshell

Attaining and defending post contact metres is where I'd like to see us improve the most Exactly my thoughts. The article above about by the numbers clearly shows the areas that must be improved and this is a major. Unfortunately one of our only forwards able to bend the line after contact is going...

I would rather have the three players (McIntyre, Smith and Mikaele)elevated to the full squad than an average plodder from somewhere else. Sure , they may all not work out but look at the players from say Easts, St George and Penrith that emerged when given the opportunity.Mikaele in particular loo...
