Re: Vale Pat Devery

Just missed seeing Devery play, but my Uncle Vic was always saying how good he was.

Thoughts are with his family at this time.

Re: BENJI IMPRESSES TIGERS

Give Benji the #6 jumper and put the grub at #9 Let's stick with the plan for the moment. We can make changes as needed when the season starts. Agreed, but Brooks has till round 6. Then we give the Number 7 to Marshall (or maybe Reynolds if he really wants it and remembers to pass!). Hope you have ...

Re: Why pressure won't get to Luke Brooks in 2018

If anyone seriously believes this kid has not taken everything from the club and given back next to zero, then they have not been paying attention. It could be argued the only reason he is still here is because no one else wanted him. He better get with the programme fast as the pressure is certain...

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....

Re: The Contenders: Lock

What hole running? The only holes I've seen Lawrence running into are the dressing shed tunnels at half time. Lawrence is a great hole runner - hits at tremendous speed but can have a loose carry when taking the ball at the line Come on Tacky! I think Lawrence runs great lines and often isolates a ...

Re: The Contenders: Lock

I know the modern trend is to have props interchangeable with locks, but if Taylor is a consideration for lock, why not Rowdy? He's got the ball skills (gone well at 5/8 for us in the past) and the footwork. Because Taylor is extremely good at defending in the middle and is a better ball player tha...

Whether or not Reynolds is the best option at hooker (I vote no, not even close), most coaches like to keep their spine intact.
What has he played 1 or 2 games at hooker. Taylor would eat him as a hooker.

I vote no as well.

Re: The Contenders: Hooker

I don't think we need two recognised DH's in the 17, it wastes a good bench spot.

Especially as " clontarfkid" says "we have Taylor and Marshall" to switch around whichever way Cleary wants to go.

Re: Pre Season Casualty Report

As I actually wrote the contentious comment re" accomplished",Ill have my say.. I think all 3 of Marsters/Milne and Suli are ..ahem.."accomplished",and all will be solid NRL players at worst. We cld choose any pair and I'm sure they'll do well,and most importantly will develop further under Clearys...

Re: The Contenders: Hooker

Probably our weakest position. A few players could do a job but no stand-outs at hooker . No one is terrible at DH but no one is a possible rep player either. Disagree TD - I think a number of positions are weaker than DH. Liddle is definitely a future rep player and was already named in the Emergi...

Re: Pre Season Casualty Report

I'm not quite sure why we bought McQueen in the first place as we seem to have similar types in Lawrence and Taylor...who need to be complemented by one or more larger backrowers. Guess the deal was done before Clearys arrival...and before we knew of McQueens injury issues As for Suli,we have sever...

Re: Cleary's - "back to the future" prediction ?!

Could "back to the future" mean an encore for Farah to play his final season alongside Marshall? Liddle has an ongoing injury, Robbie looks like playing second fiddle to Cook if he stays at Souths, and contracts don't mean much these days. Probably not, just thinking out loud.... Heaven forbid - le...
