Re: Cleary v sheens

15,000's about right for a Sunday at Leichardt. Wasn't a sellout. Interesting seeing the Tigers side from 10 years ago. Ben Te'o, Ryan Tandy and Dane Laurie at the same time.

Re: Opposition tries just before half time

That's the point where the starting middle forwards have usually been taken off, so you've got your bench players defending. That's when a team's depth is properly tested.

Re: Home Crowd Sizes

Lol at the CSS crowd. Really not encouraging the club to move more games out there ay. So much is said about local grounds being important to the game but, they really don't show it. 11,000 on a Friday night against Brisbane's pretty good. Most Sydney clubs would struggle to get over 10,000 on a we...

Re: HOW WOULD YOU LIKE 2018 END

Since we're onto a good thing I'd like to beat the Storm twice more this season.

Seems like a lot of the teams have adapted to Benji's spiral bombs
Bit of that, and also defences are working out how to limit our halves time and space. Penrith's speed off the line to shut out Brooks and Marshall was excellent, they'd clearly done their homework.

Re: NRL Scheduling

The last couple of years I thought the schedule was alright, this year's been ridiculous. A home game in Auckland, a home game in Tamworth, having to wait til rd10 to get a Leichhardt game, then plauing that Thursday night with the short turnaround coming from New Zealand, with another Thursday nigh...

Re: Benji needs back up

Brooks is running the show, so Benji shouldn't feel he's under pressure to carry the team at first reciever for 80 minutes. We've got other playmaker options in Elijiah Taylor and Jacob Liddle to take some slack as well. We don't need a half on the bench. We've already got a bench hooker and a utili...

Re: Benji and Brooks Not Targeting our Wings

Those often blow up in your face. Nice to have in the kit if you spot the opposing winger's been forced in, but they're usually pretty low percentage as a last tackle option. For what's becoming a signature move, I love the way Brooks will run across the line on the last and try and draw the defence...

Do we offer plod based contracts ?
That's pretty much the Cleary strategy. Hire plods, have them plod harder than anyone else, plod for 80 minutes and plod in numbers.

Re: If Ivan moves on at the end of his contract

If Cleary's getting results, I'd like to think he'd stick around. If the Tigers make the 8 this year and the next the Tigers will certainly up the offer. Having said that I'd like to see this period of management set up a strong enough system and culture that the success of Wests Tigers does not dep...

Re: Should Brooks be NSW 7?

Not this year, although Brooks is a shot at a Daly M if he keeps this up.

Watching at Brookvale yesterday though, I realised DCE is a much better origin chance than Brooks, and seeing them head to head that seemed ridiculous.

Re: What did you expect after 5 rounds

I thought top 4 or last place. We were either going to be properly sorted coming out of pre season, or we weren't, so it was kind of an all or nothing deal considering the draw we had.

Re: 1 Teddy or 10 Thompson's...

Origin pays $30K per game and right now Thompson looks better than Inglis or Boyd.

There are Queenslanders already making noises about selecting him.

Re: Why Can't Brooks Kick?

Here's the numbers for repeat set ingoal kicks for the NRL last season. Brooks' numbers aren't that bad, bearing in mind he was sharing kicking duties with Moses half the season. 60% more likely to come up with a repeat set than give away a 7 tackle restart.

Re: ISP Team Announcement: Round 1

I'm looking at 1-13 and most have played or are expected to play first grade. We should have a good ISP side this year if nothing else.
