What difference has Potter made to our players

Post by Boonboon2 » Fri 18 Jul, 2014 8:04 pm

Tedesco - Was a youngster with potential but had just come back from a year off from injury after 2 years under Potter he has been offered 800k a year and yet turned it down to stay

Nofoaluma - Under 20s player with behavioural issues has turned into a star young winger with origin potential in the future

SImona - From reserve grader to a fantastic centre who was named in NZ train on squad last year

Lawrence - Injury plagued and crappy to injury plagued and crappy but making 100m a game at least

Richards - Came back to play under Potter and almost made Origin at 32 and not having played NRL in 10 years

Austin - Reserve grader at Penrith to one of the most improved players in the game

Brooks - Young star in the 20s who under Potter will win rookie of the year

Blair - From most overrated player in the game and most over paid to be being back to NZ test squad and one of our best players in 2014

Thompson - Reserve grader to one of our best players

Sironen- Young bloke to still being young with plenty of potential but has been injured

Woods- First grader with potential to NSW and soon Australian prop

Farah - NSW origin player just to NSW vice captain and star who has been one of the comps best

Galloway - One of the few who have struggled under Potter

Taupau - Reserve grader bulldogs to star at the tigers

Sue - Under 20s player to genuine first grader

Gavet - Reserve grader to strike weapon

Seumanufagai -From reserve grader to possible starting prop

Our coach has improved 16 of 17 players since taking over - What more do they want at a club with a ridiculous board situation, bugger all money to support and for the lowest payed coach in the game - especially given we are equal 7th despite a horrible run with injuries.

Out if those players, 7 of them are juniors and sheens was the one who groomed them to be what they are. Not potter. Others have been purchased.

As much as people bag sheens for his coaching what he did behind the scenes with the up and comers was amazing.

Potter has helped. He hasn't turned any of them into superstars. However practically every player in our current squad has improved under Potter, including Robby.
in Ivan we distrust

Do we know that anyone's involved at the Tigers has leaked anything? All I've heard is tabloid speculation, forum gossip and TripleM Twitter trolling.

So, Galloway must be the source of the gossip.

Could you shed some light in regards to Nofo's behavioural issues? I didn't know anything about this and it comes quite shocking since he seems like a really good genuine bloke.

I've been thinking about this as well. Players have been working hard under potter. There is no one in that squad who id say isn't putting in 100%.

That said- potter has struggled to make us function as a team. Players have improved but the structures around the players haven't improved much. As someone said, better to have a champion team than a team of champions. This is where i lack belief in potter. Hope he can show us something in the last few rounds.

Potter has made them all give 100% and that is what everyone asks for in a team that finished second last.

Shame there is 33 players in the squad.

SImona - Fantastic Centre ? His only scored 3 tries the whole year and two of those were in round 3.
Lawrence - So he takes a lot of hit ups Big deal. His defence is abysmal and has not improved.
Austin - Still plays like a reserve grader and hasn't been able to cement a spot in the team.
Blair - Can't stand the guy his only here for the money so he is never going to improve no matter what.
Anasta - Has he improved ?
Sironen - What has improved about him ?
Farah - Yeah that was a master stroke by Potter taking him off against Manly last year.


What about

Eddy Pettybourne Joel Reddy Lote Tuqiri Benji Marshall Ben Murdoch- Maslia
Jack Buchanan Shaun Spence Matt Bell Nathan Brown Blake Ayshford
Marika Koroibete Jacob Miller and Matt Groat

He really improved those guys

He may have improved but he still sucks. Can't wait for him to get released.
Tigers tragic since 1980.

They tackle more, hit harder, handle adversity better and play with more tenacity, run harder and straighter and make fewer dumbs plays

Well he 'improved' most of that last lot you mentioned out of the club.
You can see them starring for other clubs every week...wait a minute... they're not.
The only two mentioned that are left are still kids with better players in front of them.
