Re: Season in Review: Benji Marshall

I'm curious as to why NRL teams insist on the same team each week. Certain individuals, Marshall included, noticeably lost quality when playing multiple games in a row. But after enforced stints on the sideline, they returned fresh. Wouldn't it be better to rest playmakers, maybe have Benji and Rey...

Re: Your Opinion on were Two New Teams Should Be Based In the NRL

Manly/Easts to merge (Change to Central Coast Chickenhawks)

Sharks to Perth.

2nd team in Brisbane/Ipswich (Maybe call it Greater Western Brisbane)

This keeps 16 teams, expands the NRL reach, breaks Broncos stranglehold. Kills all the birds with a few stones.

Solved. Thread closed. ;)

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

On face value, Cleary is staying for the next two years. If he leaves then, he probably leaves us in a better position. He is known as a rebuilder coach. He comes in, rebuilds clubs and leaves them in a better position than when he came. I have no issues with that. The brand new Centre of Excellence...

Re: Wests Tigers players have been involved in drug raids

So they just happened to be there and were found clean... That's not a story. Nothing to see here.

Re: Johns: $12m salary cap in a bid to reduce NRL to 12-teams

16 teams is the perfect number for the NRL. Any more it starts to get unwieldy. Any less, you isolate fans. Consensus is we need another Brisbane team. Thus something has to give. Solution: First, relocate Sharks to Perth. This reduces the Sydney teams, promotes the game nationally and reunites the ...

Re: Will the Wests Tigers make the 2018 finals?

To be any chance we need to win all remaining games which will get us to 30 points and ideally, Broncos, Dragons, Warriors and Sharks all lose their remaining games leaving them on 28 each... Stranger things have happened.

Re: Unfortunately Get Behind Souths

I'll definitely be barracking for the Rabbits and the Rorters the next two weeks. But I think it's going to come down to points differential. If we win 2 from 3 (which looks likely) we end up on 28 points but most likely still with a negative points differential. Current Tigers 24 points -34 differe...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

The way I see it, we are in the same boat as a month ago. Ie. Ivan is here at least until the end of his contract. If anything, we have more certainty with Ivan saying as much.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I was impressed with Mikaele in the ISP today. Coming off the bench he set-up one try in the first half, charging onto a quick play the ball he went through three defenders using footwork and power to then draw the Mounties fullback and find our own Dylan Smith in support to score under the posts. ...

Re: Improved Attack

Agreed. Looked sharp. But it sometimes seems to come at the cost of defence.

Seems like we either have a great defensive display OR a sharp attacking game.
Hoping next week we can have both!

Re: Bunker ruling on forward passes

Captains Challenge. If they think the ball was forward and missed by the refs the Captain can challenge.

Plus NRL to define forward pass, forward out of the hands, momentum drift OK.

Probably not going to happen though...

Why not say this Tuesday. Feel the anger and emotion from all parties has been a waste of time.

A possible explanation is that he had a decision to make, about an option he...
