Probably could have won the comp in 2009 if Moltzen had been left in the halves were he belonged.

Re: Josh Addo Carr ...Petition To Stay

While it was dumb of the club to let him and MCK languish in NSW Cup when our right edge was so poor, it was smart of the club not to get into a bidding war to keep JAC when he signed with the Storm. He can't have wanted to stay too badly otherwise he would have taken our offer and taken advantage o...

Re: Woods V Hargraves

It's a bit much expecting Woods to do everything. Surely some of the other blokes could look to take the heads off the opposition and jam their elbows into people's throats.

Re: Ok, So Why Are We So Soft?

2. I am not usually a fan of comments such as this from disgruntled players/coaches (Braith Anasta anyone) but this is an interesting insight and goes to your initial point. Further more, Potter put together a forward pack with mongrel that was beating the crap of opposition packs. That prop rotati...

Re: Rumour-JAC To sign with Storm.

Very disappointing. We got lured into a bidding war in re-signing Kyle Lovett - but we draw the line for the only promising outside back we have on the books? Strange decision. A small thing in the grand scheme of things perhaps, but it's emblematic of the self inflicted troubles the club keeps fin...

Re: I've had enough

It's getting to the stage where I don't even see the point of getting a new coach. Next year is the last year before the off field salary cap comes into effect and there will be plenty of other changes for that year too, so the end of 2017 seems like the right time to make wholesale changes. What's ...

Hey you know who's really good at dribbling a kick into the in goal area to get a repeat set? Robbie Farah.

Re: Next 2 games are crucial for Jason Taylor

I agree. Our defence looks best when both Taylor and Farah are playing. It's still s*** at the edges, particularly the right side, but I'm starting to wonder if the coach is directing the players to defend so compressed around the middle.

Re: Moses - The next Benji

Brooks is the half I would be letting go. We have these guys for next season, but I would honestly let Brooks go. He's not a great organiser, his kicking game is more often than not, poor and his defence (Moses too) is crap. But at $550k, he's not worth it. Moses looks to be the more confident of t...

Re: Woods V Hargraves

That's right Robbie got injured. During that time, we had a narrow win against Parra and lost two on the trot before he came back. Then during the Origin period, we won every game he played and lost every game he didn't. Then injuries caught up with us, with Bodene Thompson playing in the centres be...

Re: 3 Over rated players on here

Spot on with Moses. As soon as Brooks took control from him in the match last week, we started to look the goods. I think he's overrated too, but the club has gone all in this bloke, Anasta, Austin, Sironen and Martin have all made way for him, when really he needs a full season in ISC to get his he...

Re: Sick of Teddy being targeted

If you're an opposition team why wouldn't you do it? Attack Tedesco's head on a kick return and Teddy goes off the field for a mandatory 15 minute concussion test. You give away a penalty and go on report, but the penalty is just a kick for touch early in the tackle count when the Tigers are deep in...

Re: Moses - The next Benji

On a wet day like today our small backline was just asking to be decimated by any NRL big forward pack. I don't whether the club has spent it's last two cents on the new Brooks'Moses contract but the club needs to recruit two big first grade level centres and a strong experienced half. Otherwise ou...

Re: Our Squad

Buchanan is already gone to t...
