Some are a bit ignorant of his talents.

Could be the best forward signing we've made in a while.
They can get a good look on Saturday.
Coming off the bench (No. 17) in a 1st grade final so can't be too bad.

I agree. No secret that Gould and Ivan aren't exactly best buddies.
Besides, I see Ivan as a rarity in League - a man of honour.

Re: The 3 moments that changed the game

For so many weeks now we have seen very basic, stupid errors.
Does Cleary address these at training?
I'd say he would so why the hell are we still seeing all this crap?
Teams aren't beating us because of more ability. They are just taking advantage of our stuff-ups!

Re: Sharks v Wests Tigers: Val named, Mal comes in

After this week we have 2 very winnable games (raiders and titans) then the bye. A big effort this week to cause an upset could set us up for a good 4 weeks. At the risk of being ridiculed ......... I think this week is a clutch game. We lose - we lose touch with top 8. We win- could go on a run an...

Re: Cleary: "We let them off"

The difference Grub has made both weeks tells me he has to be in the starting 13.
So obvious how we've lifted with him.
Who he replaces, where he plays are secondary problems. Just get him out there!
Worry about replacing him if he gets stuffed.

Re: Your Team v Gus's Riff..

Don't think Benji would be kicking on early tackles without Cleary's okay and it's happened for a few games now. Has never been a part of his game (to this extent) so must be a reason - controling where the opposition defence plays or something.

Re: Packer

When we signed Packer I was thinking "Oh no, another Hopoate or something. Dumb move!" But boy, has he proved me wrong! Not just a huge asset on the field but his studies, social work, family life - everything about him is a credit. Saw on TV the other night that his little girl was a changing poin...

Some are knocking him but I thought Benji played well tonight. Sure he made some mistakes but the good out-weighed them. Still think he's a huge asset to this team.

Re: Your side to take on the Warriors

Whoever Ivan goes with will do me. He knows what needs fixing and is a top notch coach. Can't see Beji being dropped or benched as some suggest, especially with Reynolds out. Sure he makes some mistakes but look at the great things he has done this year - plus his experience. And let's not panic. 3 ...

Re: One game only

They should have turned the under 20s into a under 24s comp. would have got a good mix of players and given an extend time for players to develop with some players with first grade experience having to opportunity to provide experience their peers. Quality would be okay imo. I guess money talks the...

Re: Field goal option

I still think of the Wests Tigers very first game at Campbelltown. We had that won IMHO. Took a shot too early, missed it, Broncos came away with a draw.
Save FGs til right near the death if 6 clear or if half time is seconds away.

Re: One game only

Used to love getting out to Lidcombe, Pratten Park etc and watching all 3 grades. Gave us a really good look at the up-and-comers. Even before that, I remember seeing some great future players (especially Souths) in the 1963 grand finals. Still have the water soaked program here with all the names.

Re: Cursed alternate jersey

Black jerseys boys and girls Said it a few times , they did a study in the NFL and teams in black jerseys are more heavily penalized That's funny. Always thought the magpies were rorted and there is the proof. Darn! That explains all those wooden spoon seasons I followed them through! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
