Re: What one player from any club would improve the team instantly?

One no one has mentioned yet. Matt Scott. Strong, experienced and I think that the cowgirls will be wanting to punt him. No disrespect to Aaron Woods, in fact Woodsy you rock. But you don't have a very long time forward leading the pack through. Looking at Cronulla you saw a lot of old time forwards...

Re: WESTS TIGERS - NEW COACH Thread...

Man I am glad to hear good things about Ivan.. But I want to know what kind of a coach he is. He seemed to get Penrith out of a rutt. But he turned them upsidedown with Gus Gould... Contract negotiations happened and many people walked. Is he defensive? The Warriors did make the final, but it took A...

Re: Should Pascoe stand down if the players walk?

I agree on Tedesco. I think he's the type of player you keep at any cost. The other 3 can chase the money. Who in their right mind is going to offer our halves more than they are already on now. I actually disagree on Tedesco. He definitely performs as a fullback and is rather outstanding at that s...

Re: Should Pascoe stand down if the players walk?

People quite rightly complain that the players are wielding too much power, that there's a boys club, etc. Pascoe is not being rushed into signing a coach just to appease these players - and nor should he. Let the players leave if they are too impatient to let this process unfold. If they do, to me...

Re: TIGERS TO TAKE THEIR TIME IN FINDING NEW COACH

"But he's never looked likely. Not someone you should be throwing a lot of coin at." Well except the Bulldogs roster is a little better then ours but their players are actually outperforming their contract value. We seem to be up for a very big bill for the big 4, without a good coach it will be was...

Re: Wests Tigers Sack Jason Taylor - OFFICIAL..

WOW!! The players have sent the last 3 coaches packing. Have they? Not these same players. Tim Sheens: Packed by entire team for letting Chris H and Beau R go (and considering Chris H's performance at the Sharks I have to agree. Beau was hitting form as a winger). Mick Potter: Gordon Tallis is the ...

Re: Agenda against the WT........

For what it is worth.

The DT is the most Nonsense Newspaper ever. They just hype up crap, pick who they support and who they don't.

I reckon they had it in for us. But the Tim Simona issue was always going to be min 4 pages. IMHO buy the Herald instead, more brains, less crap.

Re: McIllwrick vs Ballin

Look please. If Ballin or any footballer is past it, just let them retire quietly. Yes they are paid to do a job, a job they love. Yes if they can't do that job they get the AXE. But no gloating, any player can have a bad tackle (perhaps at training from their own teammate from behind,,, ha) and nev...

Re: Which player would you prefer?

Great original post and agree with most of your picks. Loving the fact that this has turned into a hodgo v teddy debate (or a favourite wests/tigers fullback debate). Teddy might go down amongst the great FB's but for now my favourite is easily Garry Jack. Brasher wasn't half bad either. Hodgo insp...

Re: Chris McQueen

A million over three seasons is probably the going rate. I'd have him for two years, 300-350 mil per season. He's not a game breaker but he's a solid, hard working first grader who will make the strong hit ups and defend solidly. He will lift the overall quality of our pack and our team work ethic ...

I love Hodgo... He is my favorite NSW Player of all time. What a BEAUTIFUL pass to Lockyer in 2006! Did you not wonder why I wrote "*why Hodgo why* " ? A shame a player that good gets remembered for a mistake that bad. Honestly I loved watching him play, he was an incredible entertainer and I think...

Re: Sounds outrageous

We would have made the play offs last year if we'd had a half decent goal kicker. What do we know about who's taking the goal kicks this year? I wouldn't put money on a team with less than 75% success in goals. Does anyone remember a guy called Jason Taylor? He played for Wests for a short time and...

Re: The Big 4

Does Isaac Moses really have all 4 under his contract management? I don't know why this isn't the main talking point. Think about it, why would all 4 join under the one manager. Could go the other way. Mitch asks for too much money, we say, "sure, but you know we can't afford Brooksy then." True, b...

I couldnt stop laughing when I read Patten :roll Patten was awesome for the Dogs. He just filled that position like a glove. Not trying to dis Slater. I just don't see him as the "classic" fullback. But maybe I remember his failures a little more, like being targeted with the high ball during Origi...

Re: Wests Tigers v Cowboys trial Fri 17th

Raiders got done 44 blot tonight by Newcastle. Trials mean nothing at all. Totally agree. Coaches in the trials experiment and don't play their normal roster. Even if all 17 start they know it's not a first grade game. Don't know if I am happy with the trials but 16-18 vs Cowboys is a lot better th...
