Re: Ivan Cleary effect takes hold at Wests Tigers

IC does seem like a great coach and exactly what we required. JT was the complete opposite.

Mikaele was so impressive on the weekend, was charging like a bull.
He looked really good.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

The one player we need is an impact forward - preferably a backrower but a prop could work too. One that can get up a head of steam and burst through the line and make a break/half break, and get away the odd offload to put the support player away. We have workhorses. Sue is our only impact forward...

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

Cleary will link Milne and Nofoaluma on one side then on the other play Marsters and Fonua together. Just need to see Fonua get his fitness up and that will be our backline id say. The combinations looked right in the first trial. Suited each other. This is what I think should happen and I think it...

Anyone leaving Aloiai out of the side is doing a huge injustice to the team. He is our best forward. Beast.
I'd have him starting on the right edge for sure.
I'm not sure where to play Aloiai but he has to be one of the first forwards picked.

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

Don't mind your team except for MWZ at 5, I doubt he'll make Cleary's team we have potentially 4 first grade wingers, he'll play that beast who got sent off..it took 4 cowgirls to pull him down when he ran the ball and he plays the ball quicker than a heart beat..a very,very important attribute to ...

Re: Honest assessment on 2018

our backline will struggle all year. if we are thereabouts around round 7/8, i hope cleary makes a mid season play for a good centre- it could be the missing piece. I'm not worried about out outside backs. Fonua, Milne, Nofo, Masters, MWZ, Kev and Tui will go well. Our halves and hooker are where w...

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

I'd have a backline like this. Our big concern is the halves. Brooks is inconsistent throughout the game and puts in too many bad options. Reynolds isn't much better. They both have some ability but they need to improve massively. I'd have Nofo and Milne on the right and Masters and Fonua on the lef...

Who did we sign...?
Or who are we going to sign. I have no inside information at all however I heard Ben Simmons was thinking of becoming a rangy ball playing second row forward for us.

It could work. Get him on the juice and we might have a 6 foot 10 150 kg ball playing skillful backrower.

I have signed a letter of intent with the tiger (I wrote it myself). Now if they just sign it and return it to me, there is the game changing signing to be announced this week.

I hope Suli fails. That is the best way for him to learn a lesson. Go and get a job paying 50k per year. Doubt he has any skills fitting a job that pays that much.
