Re: Rankin or JAC moving forward

Play either Rankin or Chee Kam in the centres, play Kev on the wing.

Re: ET - priority

It would be a wise move for the Tigers to keep him. Hopefully they can find a mutual ground to make this happen as his professionalism seems like a much needed asset to the younger guys coming through.

Re: Brooks & Moses always wanted to stay

Halves need to 'own' the team before they start looking like they should. It could be they are just immature. Or they might feel that there are certain other members of the squad who 'own' the team, and are not able to take control of the side while this is the case. To me, both look a little like t...

Re: Tamou Leaving the Cowboys

It seems we want him to be M Fix-It, but Elijah Taylor might be the best edge running option we actually have. Lovett has proven much more effective running in the middle. Same with Sue. Aloiai is an interesting one, but looks more a middle guy. Sironen could play that role if he ever gets it all to...

Re: Why will we improve next year?

The only times we have been successful (2004-2005, 2010-11) was when we went out and bought proven quality and big names. 04 - Hodgson, Prince, Whaturia, Payten 09-10 - Ellis, Tuqiri We cant keep going to the recycle bun and hoping to buy gold.

Re: Why will we improve next year?

Look, maybe I’m seeing life as a WT member through my gold and black eye, but I think we have a lot to look forward to in 2017/18. The halves look like they want to stay long term and if we can keep Teddy long term with Woods and the others our future is bright. We just need a gun centre and a gun ...

Re: Naiqama Defending

For mine, he's a winger who CAN play center. But it's not his best spot. With JAC moving on, I'd be looking at moving him back to the wing & shifting Rankin inside or playing Chee Kam. Both read the attack better, and won't expose the winger as often. Yes, Kevin isn't great under the high ball. But ...

Re: Naiqama Defending

i think moses is honestly one of the worst culprits, old mate on the breakdown (matt elliot) analysises defence and something he criticises and looks at all the time is forming a line. so important, and we teach it to under 8s. MARK UP AND STAY IN FORMATION. obviously this is harder to do in the nr...

Re: Halatau starting hooker?

I don't want to throw any extra fuel on the fire, but this talk of Farah giving the Tigers the best service out of hooker is starting to sound like a belief rather than fact. I've watched every game this year for the Tigers & am yet to think the team is better served with him in the side. Halatau ma...

Re: Addo Carr signs with Storm...

Oh well. Move on. People getting twisted up over this kid- geez. Yes, he seems like there is some talent there. And maybe at Melbourne he will realise it. Maybe not. But I can tell you this- the Tigers will not fall because he left to join Melbourne. I think the Tigers best replacement for JAC is a...

Re: Curtis Sironen commits to Wests Tigers

This was unexpected given the rumours floating about in here. That said, rumours. Kind of says it all really. Sironen needs to work on his effectiveness in both attack & defence. And stop giving away penalties. But the talent is there. And I'm seeing the core group of this team wanting to stick arou...

Re: Taylor no longer sole selector

Couple of things- Gould has commitments to Channel 9, might be why he is rarely in the coaches box. O'Neill in the coaches box does not automatically mean he is standing over Taylor. Could be they are using the week to week grind & game day to assess who stays/goes from the playing roster. Having O...

23 & hasn't been able to get a real crack in 1sts yet. Must be something missing. Can't see this as a huge loss.

Re: Wests Tigers secure JJ Felise...

Tigers appear to systematically have reviewed the roster & are now deciding on who to keep on & who to move on.

Very excited by the direction of the club right now.

Re: 5th Tackle

Taylor tactics. Bomb everytime to the corner. Usually uncontested. Its stupid and ineffective and takes the pressure off every time That's just about the most unfounded remark about the coaching as I have seen in here. The "bomb to the corner" tactic is rarely over used by the Tigers. Too often it'...
