Re: The best and worst defensive centres in the NRL

The centres were often left isolated because of the edge back rowers needing to cover bad reads/missed tackles from Moses or Brooks.

Re: Team-first attitude driving Packer

I think Twal is more like Woods. Big motor, big minutes, big stats. Neither is dynamic or explosive, Twal would miss less tackles.

Development players

Can anyone tell me how these signings work? I know that they need an exemption to play NRL, but what about the contracts?

I just read the McIntyre or Gibbs thread, and it mentioned that he was signed for 3 year, but zero tackle lists all 4 of our development players as off contract in 2018.

Alright, I've had just about enough of the meaningless dribble in this thread. As the title says, it's politics - Discuss politics and discuss it rationally (a hard concept for some on here) or this thread closes. Not sure if this is classed as meaningless dribble , but what has happened in NZ with...

Re: The best and worst defensive centres in the NRL

When you read the rest of the article, it talks about how centre is one of the hardest defensive positions, with a lot of decision making required. While the inside defence often leaves the centres with limited options, some of them just seem to have terrible judgement. I think Chee-Kam was one of t...

Re: Brisbane player charged with assault

Why can't the Brisbane player be named for legal reasons, yet SKD and others have had their name mentioned from the time the allegations were made, through to the end of the court process

Re: The Contenders: Hooker

i want our points to come off the back of defence. i've had ET starting at 9 since the start of off season and even though he's not mentioned here i'd say cleary is thinking the same way. then ET can replace Eiso at lock. That may be a chance. Was surprised to read that our attack last year was 2nd...

Re: The Contenders: Hooker

I think that this is an area we need to look to recruit in. McIllwrick offers little in attack, has average DH service, and can even be shaky in defence when fatigued. Liddle has more of an upside, but may not be durable enough to handle the full load at this point. ET will defend the middle of the ...

Remember who we have for the first 5 weeks. next year
Bad move. Once we have won 3 or 4 of those games, we will be less than 12/1

Re: The Contenders: Five-Eighth

They struggle to talk up any reason that Pita Godinet should be picked other than, "will certainly provide great cover at fullback, hooker and either position in the halves". In other words if the bus crashes and 20 players are unavailable, he might get picked somewhere. I still cannot understand wa...

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

It might just be laziness in terms of the club providing a realistic update, but there is an article on NRL.com around pre-season injuries (https://www.nrl.com/news/2017/12/12/2018-nrl-pre-season-casualty-ward/). For the tigers it lists both Suli & Liddle's recovery time as indefinite, which is conc...

Re: MERRY CHRISTMAS

Merry Christmas to all. Wait until he gets a bit older CB. My 5 year old was up by 4:30 wanting to rip into the pressies.

She was passed out by 6:00 in the evening & I had to carry her up to bed.

Re: Tigers legend backtracks to welcome Benji home

Surprised he didn't mention about how much his nephew loved the club and would have re-signed for what benji is on & wonk, wonk, wonk.

I wish he would just disappear. Doesn't he have a mining company to send bankrupt, or shareholders to rip off?
