Re: Why can't NSW stop momentum when they tackle?

Qld made an effort to be more dominant in defense, which is why NSW struggled to get out of there own half. But then this caused the Qlders to run out of gas quicker, resulting in more missed tackles, and line breaks for NSW. This tactic will likely work better for Qld at ANZ, as they'll be playing...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

For a year or so if he wanted to id take Luke. Would consider 2 max, definitely no more. He is still one of the premier hookers and offers pace around the ruck. I doubt he would come to us though and id say parra will throw the kitchen sink at him, but the roosters/sharks will somehow have the $$$ ...

Re: What are your thoughts on signing Robbie Farah back?

100% bring Farah back. Hookers are a premium now. No one else would be up for a 6 month contract. Taylor isn't working. Reynolds needs prep in the position. Liddle seems to be out injured. Hope the guy can perform, but he has had 2x shoulder reconstructions..... I honestly don't know, he needs time ...

Re: Michael Lichaa

Lets see, Lichaa: Below average hooker. Punted to the dogs on big money. Dogs go from top 4 side to lucky to be in the top 8. (I think they squeezed in once) Lichaa and Mbye were the two key changes bringing them out of the top 4. Lichaa and Mbye fail as a halves combo. Yes, utterly fail. I am not s...

Re: Fullback problem

Lolo has talent but no heart. I don't think he should be every considered for a NRL spot again. I would put Kevin at full back for the rest of the year as Thompson will stay on the wing once Moses joins us. Love to see what Garner and Hobson could offer us in the NRL for the reminder of the year. W...

Re: Aaron Woods - Signs with Bulldogs [Official]..

In the last Bulldogs vs Wests game, a commentator said:
It will be the first opportunity for Bulldogs fans to boo Josh Reynolds.

It will also be the first time for Wests Tigers and Bulldogs fans to boo Aaron Woods.

Re: "NEVER WAS"

Terry Hill. I never really thought he was a part of us. He dinnit do anything particularly bad here, he probably got a bit too much money as a center and he did not do anything particularly good. I don't hold much of a Grudge. But always thought he wasn't a tiger. I never really felt like he was rea...

Re: Hooker position - Thread

I think Ivan is looking at it with Liddle out there is room for one of the below. Reynolds v Killer v Pita None have shown they can give quality service for 80 minutes which is not surprising. And Reynolds wins because he offers more in attack and ENERGY . Hopefully we get 60 minutes from Reynols t...

Why can't NSW stop momentum when they tackle?

It was good to see Game 1 and good to see the Blues get a win. But one thing I noticed. Nearly every time I saw NSW get tackled, they made contact and they player virtually stopped. Only Jake Trebvovovic seemed to make a little dent. While when Queensland hit the NSW defensive line. Once the players...

Re: Explanation needed for hooker situation

I believe we only have two contract spots left. Oh, mbye. So one left to fill. (or have we gone down again as Kevie left).

It's a biggish call to get a hooker in. But I would totally make it now looking at where our team is at.

Re: Nofoaluma's vile taunts from Roosters fans

Wow, the Roosters had fans at one of their games? Look Nofo shouldn't have to cop it. It's bad form on their fans to just berate an injured player. If I was there, I would have given it straight back to them with language not allowed on this forum. Soccer has this thick skinned approach. We don't an...

Re: Adam Doueihi

Adam Doueihi, like the guy.

But we can 100% forget about him right now.

Farah will have been in his ear and telling him about the Tigers. They played together in Lebanon and for Souths. We have Zero chance unless were signing Farah, even then I doubt it.
