Re: Cleary: "That's not what we're about"

He hasn’t helped the situation by opting on a rotation system. Was only a couple weeks ago he said he still didn’t know what his best 17 was. How is that possible halfway into the season. and that is EXACTLY what makes him probably the best coach we have had. It is also what everyone was praising e...

Re: To those who are blaming Cleary

Just wait a minute guys....... In every interview I have seen with Cleary (and there has been plenty of them), when asked about how well the team have started or lately "whether the wheels fallen off" etc, Ivan has been very clear to dampen down expectations and explain that they are trying to re-bu...

Re: What are your thoughts on signing Robbie Farah back?

Last week I posted that I thought he was playing well enough - especially in his recent NRL games for Souths - but as much as he could probably improve us, I didn't think he was the right fit for "Ivan's WTs 2018," nor for the fans of the club (just too divisive a character). However, after this wee...

Re: Tyson Gamble Debut

Didn't understand the hype from watching him all season. Obviously the step up to NRL made him look even worse -especially behind a team so outclassed. A few points I noted were: -The difference a quality D/H makes to a team - we were extremely poor in this area and more so once MM went off. -Lawren...

Re: Aaron Woods - Signs with Bulldogs [Official]..

On current form I rate him behind Packer, Mats and Twal. He mightn't even get a start with us! Seriously, we need a more mobile, tough, aggressive prop who can bend the line and get up for a quick ptb - not a bloke who runs half his metres backwards and looks like a Xmas beetle trying to get up off ...

Just wish Brooks could show any sort of consistency like Nathan
It's hardly a fair comparison - Brooks isn't playing behind the Panthers pack or alongside Maloney and Cleary might look a damn sight different running around each week in our squad!

Re: Isaac Luke

The Hooker/DH position is so important and I remember posting before the season even started, that we potentially had a looming issue in our squad. I supposed I hoped MM (or even JR) would do the job while Liddle prepared, but that just hasn't worked out. It's a big decision and we should be ready t...

Re: Explanation needed for hooker situation

As much as I thought Farrah played really strongly this week when he got his chance, and also think he is probably a far better proposition than what we currently have - I still don't think we want him back at the Tigers. Just like Woods, I see it as a step backwards and potentially disruptive to th...

Re: Dear Ivan!

I am not willing to blame our performance on Ivan's selections. Really there aren't that many options in our current squad. I questioned the promotion of Tui before last week and I have made my views on him clear. Apart from that perhaps a little rejigging around MCK, Aloiai, Grant, Huth, but none o...

the undefeated with Lolohea in the team is funny.. Keep picking him Ivan I'm sure we will go the rest of the season undefeated.. Unless circumstances have changed Mbye is for 2019..so lucky we have Lolohea..the lucky charm.. Undefeated with Reynolds playing as well, 2/2. Undefeated when I wear my l...

Re: Aaron Woods

I for one hope Ivan is not considering Aaron Woods at all. We have moved on now and we are trying to put the past behind us with a new culture and a fresh attitude. In my mind Woods rejoining the Tigers would be a step back and not be the right message. I actually think he could end up being disrupt...

Re: Hooker position

This is no surprise - dummy half was always going to be a problem for us, especially when you compare the impact a great d/h can have on a game. Having a guy who just throws a decent pass isn't good enough - it just puts too much defensive focus on your halves. We have been fortunate in a way, that ...

Re: Report: Wests Tigers sign Moses Mbye from Bulldogs, announcement imminent

I think he's a solid buy and if all reports are true the Dogs paying $250K of his salary is even better. In the games I have seen so far he has been one of the Dogs better players and his character seems to fit into Ivan's long term culture regeneration. All in all, a great choice and I wish he was ...

Re: Don't love the change at fullback

Tui seems to bring out quite a bit of divisiveness and heated opinion. Firstly let me say we are all tigers fans so I am sure everyone wants him to excel. I certainly do. The fact is he simply hasn’t been playing well. I am basing my opinion on what I have seen with my own two eyes over the course o...

Re: Bevan French exploring opportunities elsewhere

Ìt seems French is disgruntled about not getting a go at fullback. To me that means if he was to go to a new club he would want to play in that position and not on the wing. In my view I'd prefer Thomson (or a performing Tui) than bringing in French - Í'd rather spend the money elsewhere than on him...
