Re: Being realistic

Yesterdays effort by Dragons was extremely poor. The most amazing thing is that we could not find a way to effectively exploit their deficiencies and we also found a way to make Soward look good. From where I was sitting he was very ordinary. Why did we persist with kicking on the last out to Morris...

Re: Sironen set to come into Tigers side in place of Marshal

Good choice. I think Anasta showed enough against the Storm for him to stay at half. Looking forward to seeing how Sironen takes his chance. A genuine future star.

Re: Mixing Footy and Gambling

Horrible. I am not a punter however would not begrudge anyone else having a go, but to be completely over whelmed with all this gambling promotion and advertisements during a game that I love is actually turning me off from the game. I listen to Talkin Sport in the afternoons on my way home from wor...

Re: What Needs to Happen

I think what needs to happen is to show some faith. It's one game against a pumped and bulked up Newcastle side in front of 20k of there fans at their new you beaut stadium. The first 2-3 games of the season are always riddled with one if not both teams continually making errors, etc. Yes, Utai need...

Re: Halfback options?

Miller, and stick with him. Throw a bit more cash at him, lock him in for another 2 years and give him the opportunity to make it his own. Marshall to 5/8, Sironen to lock and Anasta in the back row.

Re: Halfback options?

D'oh. Of course I meant Marshall to 6. However there were times 2012 where I would have liked to put him in the front row.

Re: Ayshford quashes rumours he is to be traded for Jennings

Just shows what media hype can do. Club in crisis, we're going broke, off loading players left right and centre. In the end we lost an out of form lock and an average 27 year winger who just happened to have his best season ever and thus wanted more than the club was prepared to pay. Personally I th...

Re: Mick Potter Confirmed

Sensational. Very excited. Check out the online article in the Telegraph about Parish withdrawing. Gee if you were Parish you'd want to hope the board are'nt picking the new coach on those images. One looks like a visionary the other a potential applicant straight from the grounds of Rozelle Hospita...

Are there still rumours around that Tigers are looking speaking with Jennings ? I would prefer Jennings any day over Ayshford.

Re: Sheens Quits WT

Well there you go. What have we achieved: we lose the coach who has run out of ideas, a 27 year old winger (average fill in full back and centre) and a lock who has seen better days. Is that such a bad thing ? I think not. All this hoopla about 2 players who, just because they are popular with other...
