Re: Recruitment and retention

[/quote]Appreciate the work Harry but you are a little late to the party on many of these? Tupou is at Roosters until end 2017, unless he asks for a release. I would not say he is in anything like good form, and for a team that struggles for fight and consistency, Tupou is not an answer - the guy is...

Re: Coach 2017????

We were tipped to be bottom 4. With a bit of luck we could have easily been entrenched in the 8. People are so quick to point to statistics with the defence yet totally ignore the ladder. We went from 15th to 9th. That is an improvement no matter how you try and twist it. He deserves one more yr. I...

Re: Naiqama and Simona

Dean Whare would be the perfect replacement for Naiqama. Excellent defensive centre with definite attacking ability. Panthers would be happy to have him off their books.

Re: Work needed but Tigers looking good for 2017

Even if you watched the Cowboys game though - we were pedestrian at best. There was hardly any penetration in to the Cowboys defensive 20 in the second half - which was driven primarily by poor decision making at dummy half. We were lucky that Thurston played the worst game of his career that day. T...

Re: Recruitment and retention

Meriton is no longer a sponsor of the club so that Harry can provide us with TPA's in compliance with the NRL's TPA stipulations. It's as good as having him fund our whole organisation - which he should be allowed to do anyway

It's true as true. Some players were still there drinking beers at 11pm.

Re: Work needed but Tigers looking good for 2017

Eddie Jones called Andrew Johns in to consult with the England union halves before the 3-0 series whitewash of Australia because he quote "sees things that no one else does". The proof was certainly in the pudding there wasn't it? Ecstasy or not he is still the best footballer to play rugby league? ...

Re: Work needed but Tigers looking good for 2017

Matt Ballin is not a first grader anymore. There is no speed in his delivery, he seldom runs and isn't physical enough to have an impact in defence. He was always lucky at Manly to play behind a good pack and be flanked by assertive halves. It's all well and good to believe in your own fitness but i...

Re: Recruitment and retention

Tim Simona is heinously underrated. He is a great centre and with a good winger and a solid defender next to him would look even better than he already does in our average side. Daniel Tupou would be a good target to play alongside him on the wing. Gordon will force him out of that Roosters side unl...
