Re: Could Have Been Killed By the Refs Again...

We got away with a million forward passes during that game, but the only one that mattered was pulled up. Apart from that, it was probably the most fairly refereed game I've seen all year, especially with us involved and playing a top side! Saints got their fair share of dodgy calls also. One of ou...

Re: El Packer

I noticed it too he looks unfit... Reminded me of Reynolds. Question though - are people saying this because they catch him catching his breath in dead-ball moments, or because he's missing tackles, not being able to cover inside passes, dropping his head in chasing etc? I am noticing Packer blowin...

Re: Has this year been a success?

8 rounds to go, and we play Saints and Souths twice each. I wouldn't even bet we'll win 4 based on the last couple of months.

I fear it's going to look very much a fail by season end.

One thing I've found strange with all of this is that he's already mentioned England if it doesn't work out with us.
Yeah he was saying that he sees it as a great opportunity these days, not a retirement gig.

Could it be possible that he is looking at NC coming here?

Re: Official - Josh Reynolds Signs Megathread

A couple of things following Josh's appearance on Fox last night. Firstly, openly said that he would be quite happy to go and play in the UK. When pressed, he clarified that while he is still contracted to the Tigers, if things didn't go well he'd happily head off early... And then followed up about...

Re: Lolohea off the bus - Official

Do we really know the actual longer term plans on how we were going to use Tui? Of course not. Early signs were that he was going well at 5/8 and it seemed like a very good move. Perhaps he felt he was going so well that this confidence morphed into him wanting to play fullback and perhaps based on ...

Re: Luke's NRL dream garnering momentum..

Goes well and has a rangy frame that makes him look a bit light and will handle a few extra kegs. I reckon he'll need them for NRL.

If Ritchie's reports are accurate and Ivan Cleary will abandon the bus in 2020 to link with his son at the Broncos he may well as go now as far as I'm concerned.. If its anywhere near accurate Pascoe needs to drag him into his office and sort this mess out. We have record membership and a swell of ...

Re: Brooks

Yesterday's game would have been completely different if there was someone there calling the shots and keeping everyone CALM and focussed. Packed didn't do it. Brooks didn't do it. Fatah didn't do it. Reynolds didn't do it. All for different reasons, and each played good, bad or indifferent. We are...

Re: New forwards needed for 2019

The sad part is these boys were holding their own against the best sides late last season and early this season its sad seeing it go bad again. We need to find out what the Bugess brothers (Tom and George) did to turn it around. Probably best front row going around this year. Identified that they n...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

The trouble is the balance of the team. Watching it live on Sunday it's clear to me Taylor just gets in the way on the attacking set ups. We have Mybe, Brooks, Reynolds and Farah who are all ball playing then along comes Elijah who wants to ball play as well. The balance is a mess and his role need...

Re: The Al Packer made 31 metres

Do people really not realise that this is team tactics? Right or wrong our backs are taking 3-4 hit ups per set which leaves only 1-2 for the rest of the team. Realistically, depending on the context (markers, speed of play the ball, set defensive line etc) we should have no more than 2 hitups by b...

Re: Justin Olam ?

Well it doesn't hurt to dream I guess... we could certainly do with someone like him. In a lot of those try highlights his team was behind or in a real arm wrestle when he scored those tries. We could do with a player that can change the game for us in such situations, we severely lack it atm.

Re: WESTS Tigers Team V Gold Coast..

If our pack chuck in the towel as in the last game against the Raiders, we are no chance. Unfortunately neither Moses Mbye nor Robbie Farah can perform miracles. All in all though, I'm expecting one of our best performances. Agree, Unfortunately none of them is even near to Marshall in 2005-10 form...
