Re: ISP Team Announcement: Round 12

Interesting to sit near Shane Flannagan on the Eastern side of the ground, he had some black and white on. Kyle was looking over towards his dad during stops in play and getting feedback from Shane with handsignals such as to speed up play or what type of kick to go for

Re: Fonua pumped up for clash with Bulldogs after week in reserve grade

It shows what good leadership and culture creates. Players with a team first attitude rather than the selfish the 'me first' attitudes of you know who.

Re: TAANE MILNE

Did the Tigers know of his first offence at the Dragons ? If not it is unfair that the Tigers signed him in good faith.

Re: What to do with Grubby?

Tough for a hooker to play the full 80 mins, Reynolds should improve with match time to give Liddle a rest and also cover the backs

Re: Rochow finds home at Tigers

After the game at ANZ against the Roosters he walked over to my son and I put out his hand and said thanks for being there supporting the team. Little gestures like that mean a lot.

Re: Brutal Reality - We lack talent

After watching both grades on Saturday. my main concerns are getting some attacking spark from fullback and dummy half. Hopefully, Liddle can sort one of those out. I thought Tui was good last year but left the ground on Saturday concerned. If we can't put teams under attacking pressure they gain co...

Re: Why Sydneysiders should support the Roosters

Remember if the Roosters do win this year, then trend means they won't go back to back or even win again for a number of years. No premiership for Tedesco.

Re: Official - Josh Reynolds Signs Megathread

My view on Reynolds is ,as disappointed he may be in leaving the dogs he will relish with a fresh start.His big points are that he brings a lot of 1 percenters and he is very good at getting the team down into the attacking zone Weak point is he is not good at putting the icing on the cake. That is ...

Re: Player fire sale just weeks away

I hope the Bulldogs struggle to off load players. Very few players that would be attractive to other clubs. Bulldogs fans are very mixed on whether they even want Woods as they see him as just another lumbering forward. Good times.

Re: An investigation of the Wests Tigers “big” signings

Rather than ad hoc, i think Cleary has signed each of these players to play a certain style of football as opposed to the ad hoc style which has been in place.

Re: Tedesco in doubt for knights clash

I couldn't care less if Tedesco doesn't play again this year. Don't really look upon him as a Tiger any more.Even watching Origin not worried whether he plays well or not.

Re: Just A Horrible Horrible Side

As tough a season as it is ,it is refreshing to read well considered and written posts as above. To just point the finger at individual players is shallow. The club has reached this point as a result of decisions and issues over a number of years. The squad will be restructured and a new style of pl...

Re: Hot off the press...

It will be important Brooks plays out the rest of the season without injury. A good off season under Ivan then 2018 with a forward pack that should deliver better field position. Brooks has all the qualities good 7s need. Have a look at where most of the top line 7s were at the same age as Brooks is...
