Re: BREAKING: Panthers re-sign Cleary on long-term extension

Good. We should have no worries keeping Brooks now.

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.

Re: 60's and 70 Rock

I can never decide who I like best. Depends on your mood at the time of listening and what you have consumed ;). I think the ones that continually produced hit after hit were: 1. The Beatles 2.

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...

Re: El Packer

Not the guy to build your pack around. Ivan should be looking to use him off the bench next year as an impact forward.

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...

Chee-Kam Fan

Sorry if there has been a topic about him recently, but I have been really impressed with him this year. He is seeming to get better each game. Cleary has done wonders with him and at times he looks to be the only one who can make good metres after contact. Warriors and Penrith games especially, whe...

Re: Don't love the change at fullback

Didn't see that change coming. Not filled with confidence either, apart from improved goal kicking. Thompson did drop one bomb. I think Broncos game, but yep he is safe as a bank. If it were about wingers I would have thought MWZ would suffice. Although average he does try hard and has been safe cle...

Coach or Cattle

This topic pops up from time to time, but I've gotta say my opinion has changed this year. I was of the strong belief after watching footy for 30+ years that coaches need the cattle and that the cattle is more important. In other words most coaches will struggle with an average squad of players. Wou...

All Time Top Try Scorer

Benji got 2 and Lawrence 1 yesterday. Does that make them level again?
The way they are both playing expect more see-sawing this season I suppose.

Re: Tigers Make Good Players & Good Teams Look Awful

Yeah true. I've seen our fans give a standing ovation for the boys at halftime several times over the years at home games, but cant ever recall the opposition home side being booed off. Priceless!

Re: Should Brooks be NSW 7?

Not yet, but if it was a sure thing that he'd play like he did against Manly then he'd be first picked. That game is just what NSW needs from their halfback. Not sure he would have the self confidence around some of the big names in Origin. He still seems uncomfortable getting interviewed by ex play...

Re: What to do with Grubby?

I can't see Reynolds doing any better than Benji is at 6. Benji is going great and the balance with Brooks is getting better each game. You can't change a winning team, even if Reynolds is on big bucks (McQueen still in reggies). Bench hooker for the next few weeks. Liddle could play 80 but Josh giv...

Re: Tigers Make Good Players & Good Teams Look Awful

Already had a fair dose of crying in recent years with the Tigers. Hopefully just balancing the scales now.
