Re: Your side to take on the Eagles

With WT regular early finish to a season fast approaching, I'd be having a look at a few, so Liddle, Garner and Gamble running out for kickoff, whilst also trying Twal out again as a starter.

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Technically, he didn't go to meet Penrith. He met his good mate Dave O'Neill, who is the Penrith Chairman. My understanding is that Ivan and his wife attend every Penrith home game that they can (subject to his availability). Given that, there must be many opportunities for Ivan and O'Neill to catc...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Reports Cameron Munster is looking around for a Sydney club. A class player like that. An ambitious under performing club. A highly ambitious coach yeah. If there is no Nathan Cleary the money should be just sitting there for a player like Munster. Surely Ivan would have a crack at him if he was tr...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Back to Clearygate... I really want to believe that the whole thing was blown out of proportion and he is an honourable guy who was just painted badly. His interview and the subsequent comments by Penrith that he isn't going there kinda poured water on the whole thing. But, I can't help but wonder ...

Re: Packerlino

When Packer and Matulino both played we conceded an average of 14.76 points per game when one of them was absent we conceded 27.6 points per game That isn't a fluke If we had the same points conceded in those 5 games they didn't both play we would have the best defence in the NRL instead of 3rd bes...

Re: Packerlino

Our problem is when they’re on the bench, not when they’re on the field. We need more big bodies to support them. Glad someone else sees it. When they are on we are strong... When they are off, we go through the motions and rely on nofolomu to make our metres. ET is more a defensive forward for us....

Maloney is one of my most dislkiked players. Seems like a real jerk.
Yeah, and often can't handle his nonchalant approach, but take that jerk out of a team and they often struggle, including Penrith. On the other hand, they generally go okay without Nathan.

Re: Marshall and Farah

It all comes down to who they can recruit. At present they are the best we have for the positions they play. So if they can not recruit anyone better we have no choice. If the injury god is kind to us both maybe able to share their role in 2019 with Liddle and Reynolds and be more effective. It’s a...

Re: **Live Game Thread**

I'm pretty sure I saw McInnes drop the ball after he was tackled. Nope, play on though... Yeah, he was carrying it on the right when tackled and grabbed it with his left off the ground. Still, I was more concerned with Sims in the line next to the ref and taking off before the ball cleared the ruck...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Oh dear! There’s a fluff piece on the Tigers web site about Matalino. It goes to some length to reassure us that if Ivan was to go to Penrith, matalino would see out his contract. As I said in an earlier post, I am hanging on to the belief Ivan is a man of his word but everything else is pointing t...

Re: Politics Super Thread - keep it all in here

The more logical conclusion is to have solar feed the rest of you home and leave the air con on the grid. Same result, removing base load off the grid. It is not feasible to have air conditioning fed off solar without it becoming fiercely more expensive. Also a thing to remember is that old more po...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

The problem with your interpretation is that when people in the public eye make categorical, unambiguous statements such as: (a) “I have not received any offer from the Panthers, nor have I asked the Wests Tigers for a release”; and “…. I intend to honour this contract”, I’m inclined to believe the...

Re: WESTS Tigers Team V St George

So does Liddle come in for Garner on match day? Perhaps. It wouldn't surprise me, not that Garner is playing poorly, but Liddle is finally match fit and it changes the dynamic of our ruck if we're winning the middle. I feel for Garner but he seems the odd man out on the bench. Would be odd to not u...

Unfortunately I agree with you on this as it would of been put to bed properly by actually talking to the media. My main concern is that this happens after season and we miss out on a good coach and have to start all over again.. My Choice would be Michael M or Wayne Bennett (Only if Ivan leaves ) ...

I'm living in Hong Kong at the moment and you can visibly see what pollution does to an environment and people's health, let alone global warming. It's something we have to stop, but one that should be done incrementally. Restructuring assets and retraining people doesn't happen overnight. You can'...
