Thanks for the heads up rooster man but i think we've got him more for his decision making. If he provides a vlid alternative to trying to run on the last tackle when we really need to put the ball in the back corner and it win's us the game i'll be happy.

I don't expect a heighno like work rate, i don't expect the Ellis like ability to dominate the side of the field, i just want some sensible decisions when we need them.

You probably would have agreed with everything he said 12 months ago. How funny people's views towards players change when they end up in their side

Agree 100% not much logic getting spoken on this thread at the moment.Just cause his names Roosterman and not Lilyfield tigerman.Some of you guys need to get your 1989 Balmain tigers undies loosened.

There are some poor stats there for sure, but a change is as good as a holiday so they say. New team, new culture, new attitude and playing under a new coach with no captaincy responsibilities - perhaps this is all that Anasta needs to lift back up and play at the level we all know he can. The past is past and the future is unknown, now is the only time that matters, so we can only hope that Braith will make the most of the opportunities he gets playing with WT this season.

This team desperately needed to purchase someone with leadership qualities and a cool head in the heat of the battle - that's what Anasta brings to us. Even if his presence on the field only enables Benji and Robbie more time and freedom to play their natural games than he will be a great signing, imo.

So cheers Roosterman, I hope for you and your team's sake that SBW turns out to be an equally astute purchase, providing he stays on the field longer than a few games!

The truth about Braith is that he has signed with the Wests Tigers & he has followers that follow the great man to the other teams forum. Roosterman i think is hurt by Braith leaving. Stay with us Roosterman - we can go through the ups and downs together.

I'd be disgusted if anyone from this forum did the same for someone who left Tigers.
Agreed. I'm not Braith's biggest fan and I thought he was ordinary in his last couple of years at the Cocks, but I'm prepared to give him a shot to give his career a new lease on life at a new club.

Signing up to a WT forum just to hang crap on him is poor form.

Very fair call.....

I personally can't wait for WTs to play sharks , storm and Penrith because I sincerely hope to see Hieghno , beau , Humble and moors killing it .... And will be cheering them if they do .

Forget Everything i said about Braith, The guy was an absolute beast tonight. Made me wonder why we got James Maloney.

Jokes.. Was a good game, i was expecting 12+ win, I was very impressed with the Defensive effort from us, top 4 this year i think.

No its a trial... My point is Braith did exactly what i knew he would do, Lousy runs for 2-3m a carry, Slipping over when your building to something, then dogging it the second half, Now i know your thinking "Its only 1 trial game" but i watched braith for years...that ALL he has, His a waste of a Second Rower... And dont even DREAM of putting 6 on his back, cos that will be your dooms day

Has nothing to do with the win for us, id have been on here telling you again, what you saw from braith tonight is what you will get all year long....did anyone even notice him out there? I didnt even know he was off in the second half.

we didnt purchase braith to be a workhorse or make 15m runs at a time.
he offers leadership and direction. something i think the roosters are going to lack come the back end of the season. the reason you guys picked up odonnell was to bring experience into the pack - unfortunately for the roosters he is a grub and nothing near close to the leader braith is.
i was happy with what i saw from him, even if it was mininal.
your loss is our gain. your club doesnt deserve a good bloke like him.

My post was actually referring to your 'top 4' comment, mate. Nothing to do with Braith, but you're right he was pretty non-existent tonight. Unlike you though I think he will improve.

Fox Sports did say that the team that generally won the Foundation Cup finished below the losers in the real comp, so lets not get too worked up about the loss as long they take same lessons from the match.

lol, Mate trust me, coming from a man that watched Bwaith play week in and week out....that is all your gonna get from him...

As for the guy that said "We didnt buy braith to be a workhorse" :roll Mate thats EXACTLY what you need!, Farah and Benji do enough leading you dont need Bwaith running around near the wing pretending to be a secondrow, What you lacked tonight was power. And you have a huge handicap with Bwaith there in number 11.. you will learn in time tho trust me.
