Re: Chris Lawrence...time to move him on ?

Showing him the door would be the biggest show of disrespect after he downgraded his contract to stay at the club, and it shows how much he loves WT. Wests Tigers have never had a one club player, let's try and have one at least... I agree plus he is costing bugger all on the cap, we have shown too...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

They are describing Andre Savilio as another Sonny Bill. At 110kgs in the 2nd row, with the current forward signings, we would be building a monster forward pack. Something not associated with the tigers before. Under the FOX news story on twitter, there are roughly a dozen comments from people say...

Re: We need an experienced half back

All I'm hoping is Reynolds has a short kicking game and a better option than put a bomb up no matter where we are on the field. As long as he's not another Ballin and doesn't go around trying to trip people we will be OK,i hope. The big question is why Des is letting him go,he offered to stay for l...

Re: Aloiai and Lawrence injuries

Not sure why there is so much hate for Lawrence. Yes he's injury prone, but he's probably our most professional player along with ET. Tackles well and plays tough unlike most of our team. I'd still have him as starting second rower next year when fit. Agree 100% Not the same player he was but still...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Man what a good Buy Lolohea is. Sure he is rough around the edges but is already having an impact in our attack. forget ET on a edge we need a big human on a edge, some one who can destroy a defense and hurt in defense. still believe greg bird is what we need, runs hard hits harder and is a top clas...

Re: Halves coach?

Cleary should be on the phone to Cooper Cronk. If he retires this year we should offer him the job asap Cronk would be the best choice. He has that tactical mind to his halfback role. Honestly I would buy him for 1 year as a player then just leave him as Coach. I know we tried Kimmorley and his hea...

Re: Braith Anasta spills the beans on Tigers

Braith was not a bad player at the dogs or the Chooks. He sucked here. He would have sucked at Souths before the rebuild. He seemed to fit the Chooks precious Pedal stereotype. But we should look at what he says. We should not be a poor or understaffed or underresourced club. WERE THE WEST TIGERS, ...

Hey get Robbie & Hino back too , every home game can be a tribute to 2005 .
haha, if that included Fifita I would do it and write off 2017.

That being said, Benji would be an awesome depth signing in the centers. IMHO Robbie and Hino would be doing better then most of our forwards.

Re: Queensland team 2017

end of an era for QLD me thinks i don't think it is the end of the ERA, but it will be the test. To me the end of the era will be when Smith, Thurston and Slater retire. But that neglects some very important Queenslanders. Front row: Steve Price, Sam Thaiday, Petro, Corey Parker, etc. One Monster f...

Re: Tedesco, incapable of passing

Pretty sure I'm not the only one who was praying someone would pass it to Tedesco when we were anywhere near the Roosters goal line. Seriously, he's the only attack we have at the moment. Can't agree cktiger. Lolohea looked always likely but drifted out of the game perhaps because of fitness but al...

Re: Rankin hot news

We're clearly in the midst of a losing streak with some of the pining and selective memory going on in here. Tapau wanted 600k, which not long ago was big money for a forward, and much more than the club could afford. Not to mention he was suspended every 3rd week. To boot, he was crap last year at...

Haha without Cleary that team today loses by 50 (not 22). Not bad against a team likely to be in the last 2 weeks of the finals this year. Our attitude is pretty good (from what I saw). Agreed. I think we were hurting, but more composed then during our earlier games. Does anyone else remember us lo...

Game plan was poo today but far out, was JLJ even listening? Those 5th tackle o...

Re: Suli

When we get a scrum near the opposition line I'd like to see him slip onto the blind side wing and take on the opposite winger one on one, Tuiski style. That's a great idea. Also, if we are taking a penalty goal - why not purposely miss and kick it to Suli where the opposition is standing in a hudd...

Re: Naiqama, McIlwrick hoping to stay on the bus

Happy for Kev to stay on a reduced wage. Not bad depth and likely better than anything we've got in reserve grade at the moment. Definitely keep McIlwrick. Not a big fan of the two hooker policy but with Ballin going I think he's earned first crack next year. Liddle is good but he's got time on his...

Re: Are Wests Tigers recruiting the right players?

On our recruitment... I don't exactly get the idea at the moment. I think zerotackle has a point. If all our new players play to their potential we will have an awesome back line, they wont. You have to count to 6 to find someone with experience (they are wrong Reynolds is awesome and can't carry hi...
