Deep down I think Woods would be seething. You could tell he had established a very good relationship with Cleary. Sad in a way, he could been a one club man. Instead, he went through a period where he believed he was bigger than the club and made a decision he’ll always regret.
100% spot on.

Re: Mentality Shift

Footy is a game of metres. For too long our 5th tackle kick has occurred from our side of the 50m line meaning opposition teams start their set on their 20 and may get 10 to 20 yards past half way by the end of the set. They are always attacking, we are always running out of trouble. FINALLY we have...

Re: Tigers interested in RTS

I've heard some crazy things in my time..... Lolohea would be a good centre almost takes the cake. People just want o move players into the centre and think problem solved. It is a specialist position and needs someone with experience to play there. Not just you are a centre this week, be a Lyon or...

Re: Wests Tigers halfback Luke Brooks is in control and ready to rock

It’s all speculation till the season starts. I’m just over hearing about our players talking about aiming to finally reach their potential. It’s almost as boring as #OnTheBus. What would you prefer to hear from them at this time of year? Nothing tbh. Fair enough - just don’t read the twitter/websit...

Re: Wests Tigers halfback Luke Brooks is in control and ready to rock

I think that’s spot on King Sirro. Taylor setting up on the other side to Brooks and Reynolds gives us options. Also think Lawrence could play that roll if in the top 17

Re: Wests Tigers halfback Luke Brooks is in control and ready to rock

I for one am looking forward to the half and five-eighth playing both left and right. Sounds like good ol’ fashion footy coming back. Also....... at risk of being bashed with forum alternate opinions ....... I Thinking Brooks will come of age this year- he will have a stellar season

Packer has a uni degree, talks clearly with well thought out sentences and seems to be very aware of how his messages will be perceived by media and fans.

Woods didn’t have many (any) of these qualities.
I would not be at all surprised if Packer is named captain. He ticks a lot of boxes imo

Re: The Contenders: Lock

I know the modern trend is to have props interchangeable with locks, but if Taylor is a consideration for lock, why not Rowdy? He's got the ball skills (gone well at 5/8 for us in the past) and the footwork. Because Taylor is extremely good at defending in the middle and is a better ball player tha...

I would like to see Brooks step up and demand to be captain of his team.
Sorry Fibros but no way. I have never bagged Brooks on this forum but judging from interviews etc he simply doesn’t have the smarts to be captain

A stab in the dark on this one. I thought it may have meant something to do with Benji in the centres again. Back to when Brooks debuted?

Re: Reynolds: "Nobody thinks they're better than anyone here"

Why? I thought the podcast was really positive- and honest and raw which makes a change from ‘I just did it for the boys’ ‘were just playing one game at a time’ ‘it is what it is’.....
