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.

Lawrence 12. Taylor 13. Eisenhuth 14. Twal 15. Sue 16. Aloiai 17. Marshall It still looks decent but the ad...

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 ?!

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

How long till someone tags it Clearyball? Next year will be that up the middle, kick long, mistake free footy. It's what we have to do but some fans won't like it if we arnt winning much. The problem is it's hard to win games playing that footy and we need to win games. I assume Cleary realises thi...

Re: Official - Josh Reynolds Signs Megathread

i reckon peeps are way too hard on Brooksie. he is a pretty good player,nice pass,good speed, there is only one area that he needs to work on and that's his 5th tackle kicking...once that gets sorted we are rocking. He has all the attributes to be a star but some poor options are holding him back. ...

Re: Josh Aloiai

Its funny, I like our front row stocks for next year but lament our back row options. If Aloiai, & Huth get going this year, they may be a revelation. I think our backrow will be fine. Taylor on one edge or even up the middle solves one spot. If Taylor plays at lock we may have a small backrow with...

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

MWZ is also a good player and he can catch the high ball well. He could easily take a wing spot. Chee-Kam is another guy missing out and he could easily slot into a back row position. Surely we are going to have a good reserve team. It'll be interesting to see how we perform next year because we do...
