Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Roster now full for 2018 with Mybe and Farah signing on this week, Kelly will have to wait for next year if at all. I find this incredibly difficult to accept. Using Sironen in our squad this season when we're desperate for a centre just doesn't make any sense. Sign someone from another club. AN ex...

Re: Wests Tigers sign Robbie Farah for 2018 Official

Hopefully being a reserve grader for the past year has knocked his ego back into check.

I don't expect an apology to be forthcoming to the fans for the way he (and his agent) bad mouthed the club but it would be nice. Hopefully he can remain professional for the final few months of his career.

Re: Tim Simona

He should join our community programs seeing all the damage he did to our fans and our brand through his actions. Not the Panthers.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Salary cap is limited. We dont need a winger. Oates is a great player but we have other priorities. We need a centre, a top class one. Definitely, with the idea to eventually move Marsters to 2nd row where he could solve another problem for us. Did you watch Esan in lower grades very lazy in own 50...

Re: Jersey Flegg Round 15

Sometimes all you need is a good rev up!



Otherwise maybe the change in results is from a combination of the team starting to gel and playing a couple of the other weaker teams consecutively

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Pascoe had previously confirmed we would be using Curtis in our top 30, but with all our injuries hopefully this forces a rethink. We have one fit centre in our entire top 30 now.

Re: Fonua requires surgery

This should actually help us change our game plan and get more forwards involved in our sets instead of being so reliant on our backs

Re: NSW Residents Squad v QLD..

Felise has been our best prop all season and this is well deserved. Surprised by Bayley, he's been on our bench a fair bit.

Re: Fonua requires surgery

We'll be better off without a prop at centre, but we need to sign a centre before June 30. Robbie can wait.

Re: Tyson Gamble Debut

A lot of predictable over reactions on here. Sure he had a poor game. But our entire 17 had a shocker. That was our worst team performance in well over a year. Not a single good player out there. Yet some people seem to be disappointed a debutant wasn't our best player? I liked that he kept trying, ...

Re: Elijah Taylor

I think it'd be best if he moved on to NZ or to the UK next season. Can't find a spot for him in my 17. Not our best lock, not a second rower, and not a hooker.

Both he and Lawrence seem to get concussed every second week. Not good

Re: ISP Team List: Round 15

Team dug deep. With no real playmakers on the field and a limited backline they did well to beat a team that beat us earlier in the season when we had a much stronger side. Was an ugly match. Not many chances. We seemed to bomb a few. Tui was somewhat involved, but another rocks and diamonds perform...

Re: Working it out with our backs

Yeah i agree with the OP. Far too many ineffective hitups from our backs. Some sets there weren't a single hit up from the forwards and we were making 30m a set. Backs running teh ball should be limited to the first 2 or so hitups, unless there's a quick play the ball which suits another scoot. Our ...

Re: Jersey Flegg Round 15

2 in a row, and the team starting to look good.

Everyone did their job fairly well, especially the left side attack which ripped them apart time and again with some strong running.

Jersey Flegg Round 15

Boys absolutely carving North's up. 34-0 at halftime. Israel Seufale and Tautailefua with a few tries each m left side attack ripping them apart. Props playing very well, everyone doing well.

And that was running into a strong breeze
