Cudos on Robbie for taking the blame with Anasta for last week.

Not saying Robbie is egoistic but potter seems to have tamed the senior players' ego this week.

It's amazing how one win can make you see so many positives. Now comes our real test- something tigers haven't done since 2000- consistency.

I really like Mick Potter. I really feel like we need to stick with him. It was always likely that we were going to take a couple of years at least to get back to competing regularly with the team at this age so just shuffling him out for some other chump is a bad call. Let him grow with these kids. Everyone raves about Trent Robinson and Michael McGuire but those guys had rosters bought for them. It's chalk and cheese. If Potter can raise a team of talented youngsters into a competitive unit, that'd be an achievement. I could have coached the Roosters to the comp last year.

He is not the best talker in front of a microphone but if he can get the best out of the players that is all that matters. The jury for me on him is still out.

Mate I think it's a good thing to be honest. We generally show up in big games and the confidence from today will still be fresh. Some players may still be a bit sore, but I prefer us have a short turn around and be on the back of a win, than have 6-7 days when the excitement and enthusiasm can wear off.

As they have had two games in the stifling heat, a night game should be a welcome change. You would think that there fitness levels will be right up there after those very trying conditions. Let's hope they control the ball and keep repeat sets for the bunnies to a minimum.

Yeh he comes across terribly in press conferences. However, if (a big if after one win) the team starts performing consistently I can look past his inability to articulate.

Gary while potter didn't mention what they were doing on Wednesday they will definitely be training that day...
Tuesday will be video plus a light session to get moving as a team again, Wednesday will be a full day training for them and Thursday just a short captains run..
It's standard considering times and venues for r1-2

Wayne Bennet comes off terribly in front of a microphone.

As do some of the best coaches in the game.

Listen to what he is saying at these press conferences, it is everything we have wanted to hear and improve on for the last five years.
