Wests Tigers are certainly short on the intimidation factor and all of our oppositions thrive on it. The last intimidator we had was Gareth Ellis. This year we thought we struck the jackpot with Packer but now we know the unpalatable outcome of that purchase. We desperately need a genuine intimidator. Even someone like Dylan Napa would be accepted with open arms

How is the best Half arguably ever going at controlling the game this year behind a pack of plodders...?
The plodder forward pack had nothing to do with Brooks being caught twice with the ball on the 5 th go figure

No but the coach might. Its happening way way too often to be poor play. More like instruction to run it on the last if within 10 of the tryline

Roosters and Storm do it a lot... other teams though not as much as well...rather than the risk of giving up a 2nd tackle set..but what would they know..better to turn the ball over and have the opposition tough it out ...

Once it was an obvious play..the second time it was the wrong option as he tried to use his speed to get on the outside of the centre.. but a kick would have been better

No intimidation. Rubbish teams are s*** scared of Taylor.

They are afraid they are going to send him to the HIA again.

Poor guys is struggling this year. Makes plenty of tackles but no go forward, looks lost out there sometimes too. If we keep him I think it should be for depth.

Packer needs come off the bench, we need a starting prop.

There was a third in the game, wasnt Brooks but another player. All seem to result in the opposition being pinned in a corner on the first.

Not a fan of it myself if its a tactic.

Having watched the last two debacles, it seems that our confidence is shot to bits. Firstly we need to hold the ball and not kick on the 3rd and 4th tackles; we need to keep the ball in hand and just can't afford to give the opposition free tackles. Secondly, it would help a great deal if our forwards played with a bit of depth instead of trying to get some momentum going over 3 or 4 metres. Run on to the ball boys!

It's very much like watching schoolboys when they are being beaten; they all seem to huddle together. As Frank Hyde used to say, :Ahhhh, you could throw a blanket over them!"

Hipgrave is staying with the Titans. Terapo averages 104 meters from a average of 10 hit ups a game and has a tackle efficiency of 93%.

It would be negligent to say to your half dont worry about kicking for repeat set just run it and get tackled

Klemmer is a goer but does he make enough impact.? He would be on top dollar whereas if we score an active up and coming youngster like I have mentioned in earlier post we can save some money to compensate for some paying overs.

Klemmer is a current SOO player and far better than anyone we can field. If there was any chance of getting him here, which I strongly doubt, I'd say go for it.
