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 b...

Re: What is Brooks best position

In my opinion it's too late to try something else for him, At least at WT. He has to sink or swim as a halfback for us. If he cant do it within the early few rounds he's out. I'd put Marshall in and promote Gamble to the interchange as a signal to G that next season it's his. WT have endured too lo...

Re: What is Brooks best position

Well said Russ.. This thread just seems to be an opportunity to further slip the boot in by the usual suspects before a ball has been kicked in real anger... I'd have Rowdy ahead of Tui though... Couldn't help yourself eh! Chief. - should've known there would be a sting. I don’t think that there’d ...

Re: What is Brooks best position

Gee Wizz, Let's hang him and be done with it. Brooks - Whipping Boy No. 1 for 2018. Tui - Whipping Boy No. 2 for 2018. ? - Whipping Boy No. 3 for 2018. Will it be Rowdy or Kev again or one of the new recruits - stay tuned. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Well said Russ.. This t...

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: 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’...
