The Wests Tigers have no one that kick goals. This may prove to be a major issue in 2018
Lolohea, Milne and Thompson all kick goals.
and.... Marshall! (though his goal kicking boots may be a little rusty).

Still can't get over Jason Taylor not training up a GOAL KICKER! You were one of the best goal kickers in your time and as head coach you just don't teach anyone! :brick:
Hopefully IC and BH can/have trained a few up over preseason. Can never hurt having more than one option.
The star of the team is the team.

If Smoking Gun is right
Will all those giving him a hard time stand up be a man and apologize
I bet not
This is a Rumours thread
The whole idea is if you believe you have heard something worth while posting then post it

I once heard a rumour the Cherry Evans had signed with the titans but it didn't happen
My point is players can change their mind very easily
I wouldn't name a player who might be thinking about signing with us
Other club's may just try and sneak in under our nose to get him
I like your posts Smoking Gun
I hope your right and we do land a big signing
Fairly sure DCE did sign with the Titans. But he backflip while the contract was in the cooling off period. Happy to be corrected if wrong.
Thats exactly how it went down, He signed for more money then manly dumped Watmough to eels and Ballin to us and next thing you know manly had enough coin to get there man.

By the way
We all support the same team
We are all on the same side
And all want the tigers to do well
When we do I am sure there will be a lot more positive talk going on
Indeed, Cant wait to string a few wins together and have a full season to cheer to boys on.

Moses did go up from 62% to 82% (Not that Taylor lasted long enough to enjoy.)

He goes in with no facts whatsoever comes in with tabloid bull dust to gee everyone up. The sad thing people want believe what they want to hear . He brings this forum down in my opinion.

Yes any inside info has reduced here and its been an uneventful off season. There are a couple guys here with some inside word the pom and the yoss but apart from that i would not come here if u want inside info.

The club should care what is said on here
We are it's supporters
Without it's supporters it won't exist
I would be surprised if someone in the Wests Tigers media department wasn't looking at this forum and gauging how we perceive their current performance
Its a good way of the club looking at what it's supporters are saying and what we want
That's why I think it's important to give support on this forum
A lot of changes have been made in the off-season with players
We have a whole new coaching staff with a full pre season of training and preparation
Let's hope all this equals better on field performances
Absolutely agree. The TigerTorch info of 2017 proves the club is aware, broadly-speaking, what catches fire on this forum.

You'd be daft not to keep an eye on it.

The best way to put it is you probably need to know the whole story

Far as I'm concerned it's got nothing to do with being right or wrong

Once you have the entire full story , make a judgement then

He's a good pickup, joining Magpies on an ISP contract. Good as in not bad. Not one of the top 30, but if we got desperate we could use him. It never hurts to have more backup.

Yeah, he was in our FG squad last year (2017). We released him to let him go after other opportunities, but I guess it didn't work out, and he's coming back to us on a ISP contract, playing ISP (which is what he mostly did last year anyway).
