Re: What is Brooks best position

We all want all of or players to succeed this year
But we need to be realistic some won't have the best year
I hope both Brooks and Tui have a great year
At the moment they are the future of our club and our hopes rest mainly with these two players

Re: Team Announcement – Trial Match v Cronulla Sharks

I posted this on Sunday in another thread Interesting to note that when Thompson was at the back Cowboys didn't score and Thompson was doing a lot of talk Saw a write up about this today saying how well the team had done with Thompson at the back Obviously Ivan has the same idea and just wants to co...

Re: Team Announcement – Trial Match v Cronulla Sharks

A little from column a, a little from column b. I'm not so sure if the objective is for Tui to develop better game awareness (in defence mostly) and improve his fitness than having him on the bench for firsts would be required. I'd say what's happened is exactly the most obvious thing to happen who...

Re: Team Announcement – Trial Match v Cronulla Sharks

Roosters have no idea who they will be lining up against round 1 That makes it that much harder for them to prepare against us Don't forget we smashed one off the competition favorites in the first trial We did that missing Packer Matalino Taylor Twal Liddle and Marshal That is almost our starting f...

Re: Team Announcement – Trial Match v Cronulla Sharks

Based on what I saw in Cairns I believe Cleary thinks Thompson may be a better fullback option
I also think Cleary liked what he saw of Gamble
With no Benji this weekend Gable is likely named on the bench round 1 if he plays well

This will put a cracker up their backside Its telling the players that no one is a certain starter in 1st grade This weekend's games is the last chance players get to perform and show Ivan they deserve a spot You can bet your bottom dollar that every player will lift That's what Ivan wants That's wh...

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

Not sure why plenty of people are pushing for Reynolds to be slotted in at DH from time to time- from the reports of the Cowboys game his passing from DH seemed to be quite poor? Also what is the go with Fonua's fitness with some suggesting he couldn't run out 80 minutes, not a great sign from a po...

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

At this point Thompson edges out MWZ If Thompson has another good game this weekend against the sharks he will be in the second wing position He may shift to fullback with Reynolds to Hooker and Tui to half as per the trial IMO Same goes for Gamble as a bolter for the bench utility He looked very Da...

Re: Few Quick thoughts from the Trial

Anyone who thinks that Brooks short kicking game was bad needs to realise that it was hindered by 6 metre ingoals. The commentator says it midway through the first half. Wait until there's actually reasonably sized ingoals before we truly have an indication on his kicking game. I'm shocked he was t...

Re: Wests Tigers v Cowboys trial match *LIVE,,
