Re: Mitchell Pearce

Going to be a few years before we have a marquee player signing on the dotted line, said it a million times, the so called top players are lured to a club for more than money. So how did Newcastle manage to land his signature? Sure they've recruited well, but so have we. Our coach is more competent...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Why can't it work????? Have no idea of numbers but suppose each club can have an NRL team of 150 points and they must fit 30 players into that 150. Say Cronk is rated a 10, Tedesco 10, Keary 7 etc. etc. It doesn't matter whether you pay Cronk $10 or $1,000,000 he is still going to count as 10 points...

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

I honestly think that we can roll the Chooks come Rd 1, our pack has the potential to steam roll the Chooks and have us come up trumps: 8> Matulino 9> McIlwrick or Liddle 10> Packer 11> McQueen 12> Lawrence 13> Taylor 14> Eisenhuth 15> Aloiai 16> Twal 17> Sue or Rochow or Grant Can we play Thomas M...

I'd like to see him play 40 min at halfback against Cronulla this saturday
I wouldn't - Brooks needs an 80 minute stint with Reynolds in the halves are my thoughts.

Brooks also needs 80 minutes of trying to get repeat sets.

Come on Geo - and you said you thought I was in love with Tui.

What I have said is nothing compared to above.

I think FreddyK must be Tyson Gamble or at least his brother.

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

Why is everyone prepared to play people out of their best positions to accommodate players that probably are not as good as them in t he first place. E.g. Lolo to centre (which he isn't) so Gamble can play Full back? Reynolds to DH (which he isn't) so Gamble can play 5/8. Brooks to DH (which he isn'...

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

Brooks had a poor game. Not sure how anyone could say he was anything but poor. Yeah he ran a little bit, never threatened though. Gave away 3 7 tackle sets, regularly only found 10m from penalties, and there was that god awful pass 10m behind everyone which led to the Cowboys try with 5 seconds to...

Is Mikaele on a development contract therefore unable to play first grade this year?
Unless they upgrade - that is correct.

Teo is a good player but a poor human being.No way would i want him here I saw him display a lack of commitment on the field. Not the sort of player we should go near. I won't ever forget the day we got belted by Parra @ Homebush, significant injuries in the front row meaning we had to shift Danny ...

Re: Few Quick thoughts from the Trial

Any chance of fullback Freddy K. I went into the pre season thinking that might be his best chance to find an early spot. Do you think he could handle it. We'd look a while other animal with a quality fullback and Tui in the centres. Yes, he could play full-back but let me ask why? We have a genuin...

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

Will wait until after next week's trial to name a team, but on last night and in the presumed early season absence of Liddle, I would much rather have Godinet in the nine than MM in the meantime I agree on Godinet until Liddle is ready. He was a real good late pick up. MM is too one dimensional and...

Re: Few Quick thoughts from the Trial

- Cows were pretty ordinary, but i don't think they really took it too serious, probably just happy for JT and Scott to have a bit of a trot and no injuries. - Reynolds looked way sharper than late last year. - Brooks still can't kick, this is the number 1 thing i want to see improve. It's crucial ...

Reynolds & Lawrence on the bench. Who is the 6th captain? You're having yourself on Harv. Rowdy was good tonight, and Reynolds was not bought to play Hooker. Hope you realise this was a Trial after nearly 5 months off or did you think was a semi? They were on the bench together at one stage in the ...
