Re: Cleary to guide Tigers to finals

@Russell - do you use an ad blocker. I disabled my ad blocker and the videos worked for me.

I liked that review. I wouldn't pick us for the 8 yet but I think we could surprise on the upside.

Another case of coming to conclusions from ridiculous statistics that don't take into account what is happening around those players.
It's a pretty meaningless article isn't it.

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 y...

Re: Who Improves in 2018

backline and halves. our backline is one of the weakest in the comps and our halves need to step up big time. every single person in the backline from 1-7 would need to have the best year of their lives for us to be a chance tbh. I think our outside backs are good to very good. Suli, Fonua, Nofo, M...

Re: The Contenders: Hooker

Wait up .....I was curious with this suggestion of Marshall at hooker so looked up his career only to discover Marshall has played a grand total of 0 games at hooker..has come off the bench 8 times for the Broncos and that infamous 1 time for the Wests Tigers never coming on as hooker I believe alw...

Re: The Contenders: Hooker

Not many hookers play 80 minutes and I can't see Liddle doing it. He is very very raw at this point.

Given the pre season injury update ...where are all the realistic Rd 1 team lists...? 1. Tui 2. Nofo 3. Masters 4. Milne 5. Fonua 6. Reynolds 7. Brooks 8. Packer 9. McIlwrick 10. Matulino 11.

Re: TAB NRL 2018 odds

Spartan - I hear what you are stating but I also think that we have players across the park and in reserves who can contribute. Chee-Kam for instance isn't being picked anywhere in the team and he has had a couple of solid performances. ET is a great player. He is the sort of player that will just d...

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: Second Row

I keep hearing Taylor at hooker but I don't think he is a good option there. Defensively he will be great but I'm not sure if he offers much offensively out of dummy half. I also don't think we can have our edge backrowers getting interchanged every game. The interchanges will have to be used for ou...

Re: Moses Suli

Our pack wasn't bad but we had some issues there. Woods is great but he often gets slow play the balls and Sue, Woods & Grant can all be lazy in defence. We often were done around the middle of the park and that caused issues out wide. Brooks does miss some plays that he has to make but plenty of pl...

Re: The Contenders: Second Row

I know everyone says our backrow is poor but look at the depth in that position. I still think you should view lock as a more mobile prop and to me Eisenhuth, Sue and Aloiai fill that role with Sue being the more likely to slot into prop out of those three. Cleary could though play Taylor at lock an...

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

I don't thihnk the HOOTH is a lock in pick,wouldn't surprise at all if he on the bench or maybe not in the 17. I completely agree. I think a likely backrow is Taylor at lock in the centre and Lawrence and McQueen as edge backrowers. Personally I think I'd play Taylor on the right edge and play 3 pr...

Re: Cleary's - "back to the future" prediction ?!

You will always get fans who demand "immediate success"personally i will be more than happy to see a continuation of what Cleary bought to the club after the disaster of JT.A sense of pride amongst the players and a will to win and never give up attitude goes a long way to make the majority of fans...
