Re: Class is class

Good players demand the ball. I wish Brooks would do more of it. If Farah is pushing him around it says more about him for mine and where he is at after 100 games in the NRL. I thought the mix was fine today.We have had no threat out of 9 for 2 years - today our nine set up 3 tries and Brooks had h...

Re: **Live game thread**

The snipers are out for Robbie during the game if he does one dummy half run or stands at five eight for the odd play. However there pretty quiet post the victory against a Top 2 team on the road.

Crap, slow service from dummy half with questionable line ball passes, and our 5/8 throwing the ball behind and into players.


Honestly its like its 2012/2013 when we had Farah and Marshall all over again!

....oh wait. 🙄🙄🙄
yeah, nah.

Re: Farah, Marshall reunion not just a feel-good story

Can we really be relying on the Grub and Liddle to get fit in 2019? Would be a real gamble based on their last 2 years of football. Suppose it depends what the club/Ivan can do firstly salary cap wise and then the players themselves want to do. I know Benji and Robbie are old blokes now but there pr...

Re: Class is class

Nice half volley outside the off stump ....... watch it carefully through to the keeper I didn't want Farah back either but he's clearly our dominant player in the spine. Brooks has had his time to prove he's our go to man but he just isn't. He's been way better this year but still not our No 1 pla...

Re: Class is class

Even at 34 Robbie is still a class player. So good to see him not with the handbrake on taking opportunities when they bob up. Despite the commentators talking garbage about overplaying his hand - he set up all 3 Tries against a good defence .Not many hookers can go 80 minutes especially given hi l...

Yeah he was pretty good today , as long as he keeps putting the team first , remembers his role and remembers who the No 1 play maker is in this side he will perform an important role in our end of season run 2019 .......lets just see how 2018 goes 1st OK But Farah IS our No 1 play maker.

Re: Class is class

After the garbage we have running out of dummy half in most of 2018 and 2017I’m so pleased Cleary just used his common sense - which really should not be a surprise given his stature in the game.

Re: Lolohea off the bus

He was in reserve grade at the Warriors for a reason when we signed him. Did ok as a fat bloke with no pressure or expectation in a bad side last year throwing the ball around and looking good at times. Saw shots of him in March and wasn't excited one bit. Couldn't hack it this year with more compet...

Re: Tiger Talk Podcast - My 5 Biggest Positives and Negatives from Season 2018 so far

Appreciate the effort you put in for the podcast and your opinions on the year so far. I disagree with at least 50% of what you said as it is very easy in hindsight to come out with reasons why this guy is no good and why did we sign this crok, we should have been looking at xyz etc. etc. Who at th...

Re: Father and son broncos or roosters

Think about it from Cleary's perspective. He signed some slow plodders here for the next 3 years, we have poor facilities and have not made finals in 7 years. If the Roosters and Broncos come in and offer him good money with his son then I doubt he will stick around. Knows those rosters will be stro...

Re: Official - Josh Reynolds Signs Megathread

Harsh reality is it is a dud signing. He is busted and was never a difference maker in the halves for mine. Gutsy player but played his best footy when he was younger. Game has not evolved. OK can we save this comment and generally speaking this thread, and in a few years if Reynolds only plays 10 ...

Re: We Must Do this.

I admit during pre season I was optimistic about Matulino, Packer, Reynolds, lolo and Milne and keen to see what comes of Liddle but I had massive doubts. I was looking forward to no more plodder Woods and thought Packerlino could really change our middle. To be honest I didn't even know who Rochow...

Re: cleary

No one is suggesting Cleary should be sacked. Not that i have read anyway. Constructive criticism does not translate to wanting a coach sacked. The reality is he's the one whose accountable for our new guys who are struggling. McQueen and Matulino have been non factors, Packer has declined, and gru...
