Re: Few Quick thoughts from the Trial

Anyone who thinks that Brooks short kicking game was bad needs to realise that it was hindered by 6 metre ingoals. The commentator says it midway through the first half. Wait until there's actually reasonably sized ingoals before we truly have an indication on his kicking game. I'm shocked he was t...

Re: Brooks given keys to Tigers' NRL kingdom

Finally Cleary delivers something that makes sense in relation to team application. Blake Austin; Braith Anasta; Robbie Farah & Mitchell Moses where the type of players that would never work for a player like Luke. They were all too dominating and it has always been obvious Luke would go back into ...

Re: Family driving Fonua in his NRL return

Biggest thing I took from that is that Marsters is in a battle for the left side with Fonua and MWZ.

Also great to see this idea of family drive and loyalty amongst the playing group this season, they all seem very grounded.

Re: Wests Tigers name squad for Cairns trial match

I don't think we'll name a very strong side. I see IC rotating our best players through different lineups to try and find who is willing to stand up in an individual performance. The next trial will be more telling than this one.

Re: The Contenders: Centre

With the talk of MWZ turning heads, I'm starting to think Fonua may play in the centres with Milne. Marsters playing in the centres last year was good when we had no depth. We have too much talent this year for him to play there imo. 1. Tui 2. Noffa 3. Milne 4. Fonua 5. MWZ I think you have a point...

The way I read the clues, I think we are talking about an ex-fullback who is now a half. Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think Barba has lined up in the 6 or 7 anywhere.
He did for Brisbane at one stage, but nothing major to really call him a half. Quade Cooper?

Re: BIG signing coming soon

Barba would completely go against everything Pascoe and IC have set out to do in terms of a culture change. Wife beater and on the sniff, and has done nothing to show that he's turned his attitude around, unlike a Russell Packer.

BENJI IMPRESSES TIGERS

Tigers officials have been stunned by the approach of former glamour boy Benji Marshall at pre-season training. Benji may be turning 33 next month but he is running around like an 18-year-old in the blistering Sydney summer heat. Back at Concord after a four year absence, Marshall has a point to pro...

Re: Nathan Cleary

Nathan and Ivan spotted at Camden Lakeside (Wests Group) a couple of weeks ago. Sounds pretty normal, apart from the fact that Nathan's manager and a certain Justin Pascoe was there ;)

It's coming along beautifully, but the COE is still the major hurdle!
