Here's more players in trouble .. EX-NRL players Dave Taylor and Fuifui Moimoi have been reportedly sacked from Canadian rugby league club, the Toronto Wolfpack.

Re: BENJI IMPRESSES TIGERS

Give Benji the #6 jumper and put the grub at #9 Let's stick with the plan for the moment. We can make changes as needed when the season starts. Agreed, but Brooks has till round 6. Then we give the Number 7 to Marshall (or maybe Reynolds if he really wants it and remembers to pass!). Hope you have ...

Re: Why pressure won't get to Luke Brooks in 2018

I don't think Brooks has been that bad. I'm serious as well. I watch other teams and they also have halves that struggle. I'm just as concerned about Reynolds, Tui & Liddle. I think every player in our spine has the potential to be good or a dud. I think we just need the whole team to perform next ...

Re: Politics Super Thread - keep it all in here

no one stops at Gladstone... I think they still have the old Co-Op for a local shopping centre. 14 pubs, a 70's strip club, but nothing else. It all stems from the locals voting in some independant years ago. They failed to realise it only results in the state & federal government spending elsewher...

Re: Who Improves in 2018

If Brooks doesn't improve 100% we're no hope. If Brooks does not improve, Benji returns to the NR7 and Marsters or Kevie take the Bench reserve spot. Likewise if Reynolds does not fit at 5-8, Marshall plays with Brooks. If we loose both Brooks and Reynolds.... :cry: The only player I am worried abo...

Re: Pre Season Casualty Report

This is bad. I think we can cover for McQueen fairly easily. Moses is one player who could be a weapon for us and we will miss that but I think we have depth to cover the loss of an outside back. The big loss though is Liddle. I reckon we need him to turn into a gun player if we are going to have a...

Re: The Contenders: Hooker

I have our order of preference for hooker as: 1. Liddle, 2. Mcilwrick, 3. Taylor, 4. Marshall, 5. Godinet. Looking above though, it seems that Liddle was only playing for an average of about 40 minutes. I can only imaging Taylor going 80 minutes. Mcilwrick maybe if he really really trains hard, but...

Re: Reynolds: "Nobody thinks they're better than anyone here"

Any prospect of Reynold becoming captain of WT just disappeared with these pretty average comments. He wld offer the same level of " leadership" as what weve had last coupla years...and WT deserves better..and needs better if we wish to move forward ET now odds on to have the c next to his name..wh...

Re: The Contenders: Hooker

Weve invested in Liddle and shld give him every opportunity to show what hes got.He cant play 80 mins atm as we all agree,but between ET in the backrow and Benji on the bench we have two really good backups to plug the gaps. Were not a big team by any stretch,and personally I just don't wanna squan...

No, i seem to have a problem with idiot left wingers. Are you one of them? Hilary Clinton is not an 'idiot left winger', she is an accomplished, assertive & intelligent woman, but people apparently can't handle those qualities in a female, judging by the way she (& others like her) is always being ...

If you are going to say someone is "unreasonable" or "bonkers" say why! All I see is childish name calling. So I will let you know what one decent republican actually thinks of her: Sen.

Rabid leftist is not a compatible term in the US. The Democrats sit farther to the right than the Libs. 100% agreed.

Re: Politics Super Thread - keep it all in here

I reckon Warren has a great chance at being the Democrat candidate, she will probably get Bernie's endorsement and move in from the left. You see, unlike donald, liar in Chief. Warren actually enacts the laws and campaigns on the issues to clean up the swamp. http://fortune.com/2016/09/16/elizabeth...
