Re: Sin bins

It is killing the game massively. I have loved rugby league for over 20 years and this is an absolute joke which really turns me off watching it. Even though we defended fine with 12 players on the weekend, that 10 minutes defensively took all the energy and momentum completely away from us. We lost...

Re: Your team vs Eels

A lot of people who were on the Nofa bandwagon look to have quickly jumped off it by the looks of many teams. I would give Nofa another chance even though his defence was abysmal on that wing. Coaches always said to me as a winger - "If the try is scored inside you then its the centres fault. When i...

Re: WESTS Tigers Team V Manly

Cleary has to fit Nof in there somehow and I think this is the best way he can do that. Can't see I agree if that is what he's done (because of Tui's goal kicking and X-factor in attack) but I could be wrong. He could fit Nof by dropping MWZ???? Right side winger compared to a left side winger. In ...

Re: Who has been our best signing ??

I picked Marshall just because his control and game management so far has been something we have missed for years. In saying that, without the fantastic go forward lead by Packer and Matulino, it would be very hard for our halves and backs to perform how they are. When we signed Thompson, I thought ...

Re: Nofoaluma

I wouldn't swap Thompson to the left. Rochow, Marshall, Marsters and Thompson look to be communicating and working really well for each other on that right side so I wouldn't change anything. I'm a massive fan of Nofa (as most people on here) but unfortunately he is stuck in reserve grade, the same ...

Re: Your Team v Storm Round 5

Anyone at the game would've seen Tui absolutely struggling with that knee for the last 10 minutes. Hope he is right for this Saturday because we definitely need him in our team. I watched ISP against Wenty and I really feel for Nofa. Unfortunately Thompson on that right wing is playing absolutely ph...

Re: Alex Twal - Official

Averaging 40 tackles a game in unheard of for a Front-Rower so I really hope he can transition this onto the big stage.
I know NSW Cup is a completely different level compared to NRL, but those are some amazing stats.

Re: Are Wests Tigers recruiting the right players?

I saw the same post on facebook and thought it was laughable. I'm really looking forward to our 2018 season, we've recruited a team and Cleary is not wanting to depend on a couple of individuals week in week out like this year. Matulino - Getting back to the form from a few years ago which saw him i...

Re: Alex Twal - Official

Really like the sound of this guy already.
Those are big stats for a young prop so let's hope he can make the transition into the NRL team next season.

Re: The Cleary effect

Nobody expects miracles, but the change has been quicker than I expected. 1)The move towards a slide defence sees our outside back less panicky. 2)The simplification of some roles in the team. 3)Swapping Suli & Kev 4)Getting Sue out of the 2nd row. 5)Getting Ted to lurk around the ruck rather than ...

Re: Tuimoala Lolohea - This Season....


He will be great in attack and if he can bring this then we would suit perfectly.
Tui is a right side player so will slot in this season for Moses if needed.
The best is yet to come and a change of screnario would improve him I believe.
