Re: Spare a thought for TT

Just reading this reminds me to keep things in perspective. We all get worked up over the smallest things at times, including our footy club. Family is the most important thing we have and so, so precious. Wish you guys all the best and hope for a full recovery. Thank you for sharing in such a diffi...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

He had a run in with James Graham late in the season. Can't remember what is was about, but I'd imagine Graham had good reason. No to Dufty for me.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I want Jack Whighton at the Tigers, so was reluctant to watch the footage, but did so. I'll say this, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but still a dog act on all counts. Young man with with too much grog under his belt and his swagger suggests he was on an ego trip. One of those ones where...

Re: Wests Tigers 2018 season in a nutshell

Not knowing how to get over the try line.
Defense improved but attack went backwards.

Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

I hate to think we are a fallback option for all these coaches. Great that Furners name has been thrown in the mix and smart by Souths, showing they have options and aren't desperate like we are starting to look. I'd like to hear that we are conducting interviews with Demetriou, Walters, Bennet, Sie...

Re: Benji Marshall re-watched all his 2018 games before deciding his future with Tigers

I agree that he isn't the same player he was 10 years ago, but I still think he has something to offer, on the field and especially off. Its the posts suggesting he is only going around again to get to 300 games, that I find disrespectful and ignorant. Cleary and the club didn't re-sign him for a mi...

Re: Benji Marshall re-watched all his 2018 games before deciding his future with Tigers

What happened to this forum over recent years?

Short memories and dead set lack of respect, let alone some very simple minds when it comes to understanding footy and team rosters.

Each to their own opinions but fair dinkum, " they only want the 300 games milestone".

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

It concerns me, but doesn't surprise that the Tigers have no real leverage. I mean even with Ivan, yes we can refuse a release, but what if he decides to see out his contract with us even though signing on with Penrith for 2021. We can't sack him without a big payout. Left waiting to see what other ...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Maybe Justin Pascoe should be talking to Cameron Ciraldo and get a possible deal sorted with him as a fall back plan if Ivan doesn't extend. Don't forget Gould's somewhat stringing him along too. I think Penrith fans and some players would be dissapointed to lose him just so that father and son can ...

Re: Season in Review: David Nofoaluma

This time last year, half the fans on this forum didn't have him locked in as a winger. I think 90% of us have him as the first winger picked for 2019. He's not the complete package as a winger. Lack of blistering speed separates him from the rep wingers and the defensive concerns I still believe we...

Re: Wests Tigers players have been involved in drug raids

Hopefully nothing in it, but i'm putting it out there anyway.........

any wrong doing could free up a heap of salary cap space for Nathan Cleary.

Just for clarity - I'd prefer to keep Luke over paying a squillion bucks for Cleary and really hope there is nothing in this story.

More Balanced Side but changes needed

Much better balanced side with Farah and Mbye in the spine. I'm happy with either Benji or Reynolds in the 6 at this stage. Brooks is still on the improve. Throw in Nofoluma with his dirty metres and Taylor playing his best position of lock. I'm happy with Nofo and Thompson on the wings Fonua probab...

Mybe

So far, so much better. He is such a busy player and always around the ball. Brave and really good ball runner. Thompson was safe and put in the effort but wasn't around the ball much in attack. Moses has touched the ball more times in 2 games than Lolohea did in his 6 or so games. What about that p...

Benji's Kicking Game

What happened to it? Spiral Bombs, touch finders and repeat sets. This is where Benji excelled earlier this year. He was putting those spiral bombs sky high and giving fullbacks and wingers nightmares. It was a really effective tactic causing some spillages, but it also allowed more time for the cha...

Re: Bevan French exploring opportunities elsewhere

Not keen on French. I know what happened to Parra. Mitch Moses! Whilst he can be exciting with the ball in hand against a retreating defence, his rushing up in defence on his own line costs them a try a game. He also has never been that great inside the opposition 20 where the defence isn't on the b...
