Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Well the NRL can't do whatever they want, not if it conflicts with the law. I agree they hold a lot of power against clubs, but I'm not really talking about clubs, I'm talking about players. If you put a system in place that infringes on a players' legal rights, they can and will fight it. The RLPA...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

The problem with both the comparisons of TPA's is it only factors in the NRL approved ones. The RLPA is zero chance of agreeing to access to players financials. The only way to develop system is a points system... While money is involved, there will ALWAYS be corruption! 100% agreed.....There are a...

Re: Wests Tigers v Cowboys trial match *LIVE,,

Brooks did get a repeat set...must of been a blackout at that stage...gave up 2 7 tackles as did Reynolds... I guess Thurston and Martin are crap cause the didn't get any and gave up 3 also.. U just compared brooks to Thurston so that makes your opinion irrelevant. This has been brooks since he cam...

Re: World Club Challenge

Typical Melbourne love fest - Cameron gets heavily tackled in a fair tackle and of course its a penalty.All the BS of cleaning up the ruck and the wrestle has just been thrown out the window with Melbourne usual lying all over the man, turning players over who are already on the ground.

Coote goes great on a good day but man he has some errors in him - and he would get absolutely horse-whipped on here for that!!

Anyway I'd rather Tui/RTS too.

Re: Honest assessment on 2018

Just want the forums thoughts on how they think we’ll go with the season under 3 weeks away now..... I’m usually really optimistic about our chances each pre season, but this season I just don’t think our squad has what it takes to make the finals. I think our spine is quite weak, we just lack that...

I don't have a problem with it. To hell with tradition - it's never gotten us anywhere!

Don't worry about it, someone will emerge as more worthy than the others.

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

If your going to go with that. You would have grant to start alongside Packer and bring Twal on with Matolino. Lawrence is soo beaten on this website it ain’t funny. I watched the Rabbitohs tigers game round 1 last year the other night. Lawrence took his first hit up and made 6 - 8 meters pretty mu...

What did Ivan say about Benji? In the Benji Impresses Tigers thread... in part, this; But Cleary insists even with Brooks and Josh Reynolds as the club's chief playmakers, Marshall's biggest value will be on the field in the NRL. "We wouldn't have signed him if we didn't think he could still play,"...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Thats funny... All 3 are better than every player in our backline & Edwards is better than our backrowers. Maybe ego is the price you pay to play Finals? Wonder what the wash-up will be once Gutherson is ready to come back? He could be a handy addition to our squad? Gutherson always looks to be pla...

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

The bit that I thought you guys would be up in arms about is when he conceded he would not make a good captain because his too much of a hothead on the field and as such would have a tough time getting the respect from the referees. Finally it was mentioned that Chris Lawrence will most likely be c...

Re: The Contenders: Lock

Because Taylor is extremely good at defending in the middle and is a better ball player than Lawrence. Lawrence has also just spent the last few seasons reinventing himself as an edge forward, would seem harsh to ask him to start again as a middle forward where his hole running would go unutilised....
