Re: Ivan Cleary effect takes hold at Wests Tigers

Lol, front row is where we have the most depth Twal Grant Felise Hooth Sue There would be other clubs far thinner. I agree on Twal,and Hooth, but I’d hate to have to rely on Grant or Sue On a regular basis, mostly very ordinary, Don’t know about Felise ; I haven’t seen him play, or if I have I didn...

Re: Ivan Cleary effect takes hold at Wests Tigers

That team is no where near the best 17. Its not the first ive seen that these experts has left out Marsters, Eisenheuth and Aloia. In my mind they are 3 of our best and why a few of us have some confidence in this squad. If they havent looked at those 3 then they have just dismissed us before a bal...

Re: Few Quick thoughts from the Trial

this just me thinking out loud, i wish we had not signed Reynolds, thought tui was playing well at 5/8 last year and we have a few who can slot into fullback. so if tui fails at fullback does Ivan drop josh and play tui or does he just get pumped from spot to spot. his running game at 5/8 is so muc...

Re: Kids Footy

Not good news from the RL this week. Nothing in the wind about the inequity of size and experience in the lower ages. Rugby is already addressing the problem so is the Afl , or so I’m told. But nothing from the ostriches wlth their heads in the sand the GOod Ole RL. Our club on the GC (one of the bi...

Re: Reintroducing Jersey Flegg..

I think you will find that the Flegg Cup was a lot older than has been said here I’m 69 and I played Flegg with Parra, and I think it was an under 15 comp back then I know Flegg and President Cup were junior rep teams then and there was a 13 rep then too, Can’t remember what the name was may have be...

Re: This years key to our success......

I actually think the spine is our biggest challenge tbh... A full back who has very little experience in that position at NRL level...suspect we'll be exposed defensively in 2018. Both halves are neither renowned playmakers and both lacking a short kicking game..were gonna struggle to score tries I...

Re: Tigers interested in RTS

Brooks would have to go I can’t see him being a 9.... Unless you put Reynolds at 9, and play Brooks at 6 as like a running 5/8 who takes the line on and allow Cleary to steer the ship. 1. RTS 6. Brooks 7. Cleary 9. Reynolds/Liddle Simple ; put Reynolds on the bench. He can’t have brain farts if he’...

Re: Nathan Cleary

I’m on the Theory that Ivan is using the opportunity to beef up Nathan’s asking price. I don’t believe he is a shoe in target for us and even believe that if Brooks or any other Halfback we recruit shows value for money as a Half that that would be a better option for the unity / balance of the clu...

Re: Nathan Cleary

Would people see it as a conflict of interest if Cleary Snr lured Cleary Jr on a massive contract to WT? After Cleary Snr has been signing no superstars, has no big name players on big money, then signs only one and it's his own son... Personally I think it would be good for the club, but am worrie...

could this be fitters way of firing bich Moses up?
It seems like it’s the exact opposite to Loz. Rather than tell players they will be picked. Freddy is telling them that there’s pressure for all spots,
A better way to do it imo.

Re: Blues Could Use Reynolds’ Energy: Fittler

I had a cateract taken off each eye about a year ago. And , about half an hour ago , when I read Fittlers words about Reynolds, I thought the buggers had returned. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. Either Freddys back on the booze, or it’s A rev up to some of the possible NSw players to get the...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Not sure if it has been touched upon, but the Panthers releasing Cartwright gives them more cash to throw at Cleary, possible front loading. What a delicate position Ivan has the potential to be in soon if we do show interest. From a coaches perspective, he would love him. As a father though, you w...
