Obviously Curtis is going to be the new Whipping Boy now Blair has gone.

I would suggest there are a lot more that need whipping before you get to Siro.

Sironen has been a myth this year! Was expecting big things from this kid, should be starting from the bench.

I will definitely be excited if Curtis is excited after the game about his match winning exciting performance.

Who do you suggest to be whipped before Sirro, Russell?

He is part of the run on side and he should justify his position like every other player. He was our Rookie of the year in 2012. He is no longer a rookie. This is his 4th year in the NRL. He is an injury prone player having played just 46 out of a possible 72 games. He has missed more then an entire season through injury. Its time for him to sh@t or get off the pot. His last name will only carry him so far.

For those of us around long enough to remember when Sirro senior played he used to cop plenty as well in the early days of his career - along similar lines. Fortunately for him he was less exposed to the criticism - before the days of social media. Often wonder how it affects the players mentally, being exposed constantly to negative comments from fans, Not only does the modern player need to be more physically fit and tough these days, they also have to be made of teflon.

Total BS. Pure fabrication telltails. I do remember Sir. Paul in his early Uni days was a gridiron player that converted to league. He was selected for Australia in his first season of NSWRL at age 20. An Aussie rep in his first year of footy! At the same stage of both careers (4 years of League) Paul had won Dally M Rookie of the year, played in 2 grandfinals, played 10 matches for Australia, 2 SOO series and about 80 first grade games. Curtis has been lucky to limp through 40ish games. Paul "the Beast" Sironen was a gun from his first game. To say he coped it in his first few years for being soft like his son is just laughable. What his son has produced thus far is not even close to Pauls shadow.

For those of us that actually remember history correctly David Klemmer reminds me of Paul. Burst onto the seen as a big aggressive no nonsense unit, no flash type of player and has made a space for himself on the rep footy scene for the next decade.

Gridiron player that converted to league my arse. He picked up a scholarship (Hawaii I recall?) on the back of the coat tails of another Aussie (Colin something?) and his schoolboy exploits. He was only ever a gridiron experiment.

Whilst he did get selected for Australia early in his career (second year in grade from memory), it was as part of a Kangaroo tour squad of twenty six? players. And yes, he was thought of as soft for such a big bloke by many peers and fans alike, from the juniors and through his first few years of grade, despite having already played SOO. Telltails memory is fine.

I reckon there is some reverse psychology being played here,Curtis is talking the team up and trying to get to the Cowboys heads...

The entire team can get to the Cowboys ...by playing a very good hard standard of football....Iam eagerly awaiting for Saturday...
You may see me struggle...but you will never see me quit... :D

The club has to get all the media exposure they can to try and promote a game that has not got much going for it. So they do all the usual's, a Galloway story, a Brooks story, a Teddy story and now a Siro story. Its all fluff and I doubt if the players had much or any input into the stories.

Like others I think Siro has been very disappointing this year, but really he should be a impact player at this stage of his career starting off the bench but he is being forced to play big minutes because our club decided or could not recruit any backrowers. I am willing to give him at least another 12 months before I put him on the scrap heap

Speaking of fluff pieces.....ive really enjoyed the 05 stuff lately.

Hearing how the boys felt has been hair on the back of the kneck stuff.

Just knocked over the saints semi and the one where Pattacake tells the team he is playing.

AMAZING!!

LOL Telltails.. I only wonder about us poor WT supporters, having to endure poor perfomances year after year and a hell of a lot of losses.
Unfortunately we don't get paid the big money and are not made of teflon either 8-)
