Re: Marshall and Farah

Biggest problem I've seen with these two recently is that Farah keeps giving the ball to Benji rather than Brooks. Fair enough for long kicking but when we need to make an attacking play we need the ball in Brooks' hands. Other than that, I think they've been good and we can't blame them for losing ...

Same old Tigers

Seems like nothing's changed. Season on the line and we revert back to the Tigers of old, not trying to build pressure but trying to score off every play. And when we weren't trying to score, we couldn't even hold the damn ball.

Very sour end to what was a promising year.

3 Masters 2 Matulino 1 Nofaluma Honourable to Mbye How you gave CheeKam 2 points - you miss 9 tackles you don't get points ever Made the most metres out of all the forwards, including most post-contact metres. Scored a try. Didn't realize he missed so many tackles, maybe should've given him a 1 but...

3 2 1

3 Mbye
2 Chee Kam
1 Farah

Brooks, Matulino, Nofo also deserve a mention.

Definitely lucky to get away with that one though, some poor defence on the edges almost lost it for us. Had Tapine as MOTM.

Re: Ivan Cleary

Yeah if he was just doing what was best for his son he could just let him stay at Penrith.

Sounds like he's already asked for a release and has been denied.

And all leading up to our semi-annual Raiders flogging. I dare say we'll get 60 put on us.

Re: Luke Brooks

So, you have looked at the ladder, considered each team and halfback and you think Brooks is better only than Reynolds Cleary and Hunt?? Really? Not Cronk? Really? Not Shaun Johnson? Not Cherry Evans? Not even Thurston (on one leg)? Really? And you say WE have no idea. This is precisely the kind of...

Re: Luke Brooks

Brooks has been our best player this year by quite a stretch. Anybody thinking we should get rid of him just as he's starting to come good has no idea. Can somebody name me these halfbacks that are in abundance that are so much better than Brooks? Looking at the ladder I can only see arguments for R...

Re: The team that started the season

I knew we couldn't keep up our start to the season but I feel like we should've managed at least another win or two over these last 10 games. 2 from 10 is absolutely abysmal.

Re: Brooks

Played a bit hot today and forgot to go for the repeat set a number of times. Poor form but doesn't deserve the boot just for that, he's been great this year.

Poor debut but can't write him off after 1 bad game. He is our third choice five-eighth after all.

Re: Elijah Taylor

Probably the worst game I've seen him play for Wests Tigers.

He'll bounce back in a few weeks, as long as he doesn't play 9. Need him as an edge second rower and linking up with the halves. Ironically Jason Taylor used him better.

Re: **Live game thread**

Worst loss of the year. Absolutely shameful. Somehow, despite Canberra being much weaker than years past, and us being 'stronger', we're still getting 30 points put on us and being beat 13+.

This season is gone.

Re: Wests Tigers Team v Cronulla

Fair enough on most of the forwards, but I feel like it's fairly obvious that not having a genuine hooker is killing our play.

ET cannot play 9. It has to be either Liddle or McIlwrick with Reynolds off the bench.

Re: Reynolds to Hooker - Permanently

Yeah I can't quite see it unfortunately. His energy is great but his service is slow, think he would look much better at 6. Liddle had one bad game and we're tossing him out? He's still first choice for mine. Reynolds to play 9 when Liddle comes off though if Benji is on the bench. We just need some...
