Re: Taane Milne (official)

My money is on Nofo, Fonua with Suli and Milne as starters. I'm guessing Marsters will be moving to the second row, looks much more ready than Suli.

Re: Who Improves in 2018

Lolohea for sure. Easily the backline player with the most potential in our squad. His games at 6 are helping him work on his passing game, and his running game is already starting to come together. He can only get better with more space and less pressure. Think his speed will improve too. The only ...

Re: Our immediate future

Even though our forward pack hasn't been the best in recent years, the losses can't fall on them. I think we've all noticed a lot of missed opportunities due to not being able to build pressure i.e. the short kicking game of Brooks has been left wanting. Our forward pack has overall gotten better so...

Re: Our immediate future

Never liked the signing of Reynolds, and still gutted we blew our chance of getting TMM back. Otherwise our recruitment has been pretty solid. No-one could've predicted this kind of player movement in the off season. Although I do expect one more signing before the start of the season. The main thin...

Re: James Tedesco Signs with Roosters [Official]

Reynolds is on $800k p.a., although less on the salary cap obviously. Teddy though is worth the $1.2 million. Moses and Woods, not so much.

Re: James Tedesco Signs with Roosters [Official]

For what it's worth, I think the thread should stay open for a little while longer. Surely there are a few more articles coming. I've gotta say, this whole contract saga has really been disappointing. Tedesco is (was?) my favourite player but he really hasn't carried himself well through this. I ful...

Re: Woods - Contract Thread..

Meh, honestly not too cut up about it. Glad we're not paying him 800k to stay.

Hope he goes well at the Bulldogs. But I honestly reckon the Bulldogs are gonna stay an average team and he won't be winning any comps any time soon.

Teddy though...

Would love to see the Roosters miss the finals after snagging Teddy. That would honestly be hilarious.

He's gone. Holding on to hope that he might stay is setting yourself up for disappointment.

Re: Josh Reynolds

Hmmm not sure how to feel. Strongly prefer TMM, particularly considering the money Reynolds might be on. I guess the hope is that his competitive streak rubs off on the rest of the team and he helps them lift. I'll reserve judgment until next year. Certainly won't be happy if we're paying him more t...

Re: Te Maire Martin

Yes! Would love him to come back. Was absolutely filthy when we let him go.

He shouldn't be very expensive, and he's played a bit of first grade now so he won't be so green. If we get him and Brooks behind a bolstered forward pack we'll be in good stead.

I'm liking the look of Idris. Needs time to get his speed back up to a passable level but he could be great for us.

Re: Tigers $3.5m Roster Plan

I'm thinking the breakdown is something like...

Teddy - $1.2 million
Moses - $800k
Woods - $800k
Brooks - $700k

Hoping Brooks plays for what he's worth this season.

Re: Is Tedesco The Best Fullback In The Last Decade

^ Strongly agree. He was targeted like crazy, and was given bad ball by the playmakers in the team. Took some poor options in attack close to the line, but otherwise, had a solid debut, running for 200+ metres. Give him a few more games and he'll start to really show what he can do. Is he the best f...

Re: Josh Aloiai peformance

He was quite poor in that Raiders game, particularly with his slide defence. His form has definitely slowed down towards the back-end of the year. But that's to be expected of a 20 year old forward playing his first full season of first grade. He'll be better for the experience and come back stronge...

Don't get me started on TMM. He's gonna be the five-eighth for NZ in a few years.

Re: Brooks

He's got the skills, I just think he's been down on confidence for so long and doesn't know how to balance his involvement with Moses. But I do agree that he doesn't seem to have a go sometimes. Even if Moses makes mistakes, he's always competing. Can't say the same for Brooks. Doesn't seem as hungr...
