Re: Wests Tigers announce 2014 Coaching structure

The Tigers attack which used to be potent, though injuries and other issues the last two seasons has seen it stifled and the defence which was never a strong point, but when the attack was good was never under pressure, this got shown up big style more so this season than last! I'm sure Mick will be...

Re: Statement from Tigers

[quote="Fade To BlackAgree with you that if the players aren't happy with Potter and his methods we will be in for another long season of underperformance and club bickering next season. Then again the option is Trent Barrett FFS, I would prefer to stick with Potter. The players are running the club...

Re: *Live game thread*

Poor discipline by the Players due to a lack of confidence is the main problem for the Tigers, and no Coach is going sort that out during a game, its up to the Senior Players to get a grip then the good plays will follow!!

Re: Pat Richards is back!

[quote="innsaneink"]Hodges & Lyon havent been taking it easy in the ESL for 8 years though Now thats disrespectful not only to Pat Richards but Mick Potter as well.

Re: Another Week Another Dirty Tactic by the Storm

As Mick Potter said pre match you have to play for 80 mins, Tigers managed 60, the Game plan to start at a high tempo in attack and then slow the ptb in defence worked up to a point! You saw the difference between a side who have been at the top for a while now, who have a pretty good game plan and ...

Re: Mistakes by Rookie Coach cost us!

The main point is the Tigers didn't score when they had all the possession and yes they suffered the same handling errors as Manly did cause of the rain! You just know its going to come back and hurt you later in the match, when things are not going right the Officials wrong calls are magnified anot...

Re: Why did we get held to nil???

Some good points made by previous posters! The first 25mins when Tigers were camped in the Manly half they were spilling the ball like Manly were. Also when they did have a chance wrong calls by the Ref intervened! The main difference between the teams is that Manly have a settled side and now know ...

Re: Woods enjoying life under new coach Potter

The pratts in the press really need to stop calling Mick introverted, thats the public face he puts on for them and it works, away from the media he is very approachable with a good sense of humour but is strict when its needed! The Players have obviously had to take time to get to know him as a per...

Re: Defence Concerns

When the Tigers attack gets a bit more potent and the errors and some of the silly penalties are reduced (you never get rid of them) this will ease the pressure on the defence till they get up to speed and an instinctive understanding of where the cover needs to be (Storm have one of the best to asp...

Re: Tigers V Panthers live thread (spoilers)

Congrats to Mick & the Tigers on getting that first win, still plenty of work to do, to many errors in defence and attack, the better Teams will roll Tigers over on that performance, Storm are good enough to get away with them as last night showed, Coaching Tip for Mick!

Re: Phil Goulds Comments about the Tigers

Looking at Mick on the post match interviews you could see he was not happy to put it politely and neither was Robbie who was one of the few who kept trying! Phil Gould usually pees me off big style but on the Sharks situation and about the Tigers he's actually been speaking sensibly, which makes me...

Re: Mick Potter's Biggest Challenge

With Senior Players a new Coach doesn't necessarily remotivate them, it's sometimes when they get jaded and being in the same Team for a long time creates a same old same old, so the need to move on becomes paramount, likewise some Players happily stay with one Team throughout their Playing Life.

Re: What would Potter be thinking now ??

It was patentley obvious from last nights game the NRL All Stars were not up for it compared to the Inds side, who had a lot of motivation to come out at a high tempo, None of the All Stars really stepped up apart from one or two in parts of the game. It meant nothing to some and hell of a lot to ot...
