Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

A points system is no more a restraint of trade or income limiting than what a dollar figure cap is. What happens if you sign a player worth 2 points for 3 years and all of a sudden he has a breakout year, becomes a rep star and is worth 7 points the next year. Will clubs have to get rid of high poi...

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

I honestly would not select anyone for round 1 who has not played at least some of a trial. They would likely only be able to play limited minutes and if there are injuries, we would be left carrying tired players.

Re: Tyson Gamble

Ivan picked up Tyson from under Bennett's nose. Let's not forget that Redcliffe is a Bronco feeder club so I can tell you that they were monitoring him. Tyson only played about two/three games in the Queensland Cup before Ivan picked him up. Bennett won't pick a player after three games so Ivan too...

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

HUSH, HUSH Which half and his coach are at loggerheads over team selections? This player wants to swap a member of their spine with a rookie as they’ve struck up quite the combination at training but the coach won’t budge. https://www.foxsports.com.au/nrl/nrl-premiership/private-ryan-titans-sharp-s...

Re: Few Quick thoughts from the Trial

Gamble was good last night, but keep in mind that he was basically against a Qld cup/U20's side. All the cowboys big guns had been taken off when he came on. At that point, it was basically an ISP trial.

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

Will wait until after next week's trial to name a team, but on last night and in the presumed early season absence of Liddle, I would much rather have Godinet in the nine than MM in the meantime I am not sure that Godinet can cope with the defensive workload in the middle of the field over big minu...

Re: Few Quick thoughts from the Trial

Oh and we DESPERATELY need a decent goal kicker......... I thought Tui kicked ok. He kicked the first two conversions, the first from the sideline that was still going up at the goalposts and the touchies didn’t move much so it didn’t miss by a lot. The second was from right in front. He also succe...

Re: Few Quick thoughts from the Trial

Felise, Rochow, Gamble and Thompson were much better than expected. Some of the lesser light new players really highlighted how bad some of our depth players have been in recent years. Were a bit rusty in other departments with some average kicks & passes and the ball holder taking runners lines etc...

Re: Wests Tigers v Cowboys trial match *LIVE,,

Reynolds & Lawrence on the bench. Who is the 6th captain? You're having yourself on Harv. Rowdy was good tonight, and Reynolds was not bought to play Hooker. Hope you realise this was a Trial after nearly 5 months off or did you think was a semi? They were on the bench together at one stage in the ...

Re: Wests Tigers v Cowboys trial match *LIVE,,

Aloiai has been strong. Plenty of round 1 selection dilemmas.
