Re: The Contenders: Lock

I know the modern trend is to have props interchangeable with locks, but if Taylor is a consideration for lock, why not Rowdy? He's got the ball skills (gone well at 5/8 for us in the past) and the footwork. Because Taylor is extremely good at defending in the middle and is a better ball player tha...

Re: Reynolds: "Nobody thinks they're better than anyone here"

I would like to see Brooks step up and demand to be captain of his team. Sorry Fibros but no way. I have never bagged Brooks on this forum but judging from interviews etc he simply doesn’t have the smarts to be captain Watching Brooks in his video profile, he seems to have a lisp which would stop h...

Re: The Contenders: Lock

All this talk of locks playing like an extra prop in the middle makes me yearn for the attacking and cover defending locks like the great Johnny Raper and Kevin Smythe at the Magpies. Well, I've never denied being a dinosaur!

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

I’m not sure about a round 1 team but my prediction is we will give the Roosters a toweling. Everyone involved at the club is saying there is a hunger and determination not seen before. Listen to Reynolds on the latest podcast - he says everything is a competition at the moment. I’m not sure how we...

Re: The Contenders: Hooker

When your 3rd string hooker (ET), becomes an extra backrower with a representative pedigree twenty minutes into the game, I'd say our forward stocks are looking better than I've seen for a long time. I think he's a shoo in to start at hooker with Liddle or McKiller on the bench.

Re: Pre Season Casualty Report

I wouldn't panic about Liddle at this stage. I've had the same operation and I'm 69yo against his 20yo. Recovery for me was about 4 months so I'd expect him to recover earlier than that.given that he is a pro sportsman with full time physio available to aid his rehab. I stand to be corrected but I d...

Re: The Bench

he can.....where would u put marshall then?? I would still have Marshall on the bench as he can play every position in the backs and 9 if the DH gets injured. So, that is covering 8 positions out of 13. the other three bench spots cover the remaining 5. Sure Benji can cover the positions. But I thi...

Re: Official - Josh Reynolds Signs Megathread

Who cares I have left the Casino in wild all ins because others start trouble and sometimes you have to finish it. Have a cup of tea and a lie down if you think this is a drama. This PC culture of offensive behaviour is a farce. We’ll lose Christmas and soon enough I’ll be jailed for calling my son...

Re: The Contenders: Winger

Thanks for the information. He must have one wing spot with Nofoaluma on the right wing. Fonua needs a good stint in ISP to drop kgs, improve his lateral movement, defence and pace. I'm basing my comments on the photos on wt website of training. But he looks like a different person from this year's...

Re: Nathan Cleary

I am seriously concerned that Roosters are already putting all their ducks in a row for a power play. They sign Cronk for two seasons, then sack Robinson and sign both Cleary's. Is Ivan leaving at the end of 2019..as he is contracted to Wests Tigers until the end of 2020 season... If this is just a...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Merrin is a useless fat overrated softy, never did anything for the dragons but was always talked up in the press, has had a couple of decent hit ups at panthers but not many - pass! I would chase Murdock Masilla - he was awesome in the World Cup (always had so much potential early on). I was calli...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I really couldn't give a rat's what we paid for Matulino. As long as I see him playing at his best in our jersey, that's all I need; the money is a matter for administrators, coaches and CEOs, although it does seem that we have plenty of those on our forum.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

We have a good fullback in Tui....I can't fathom why quite a number on this forum are consistently knocking him.... What I wonder is how many have actually seen Tui play at fullback. My recollection is that he was a very good fullback and often split the defence with pace and a great step. I think ...

Re: Mitchell Pearce

As far as I know we didn't go after Pearce but I do think Ivan is a pretty good judge of a footballer and comments that he made last season indicate that he rates Brooks pretty highly. For me that's enough to support his decision to go with Brooks and Reynolds in the halves in round 1. After a prope...
