Right from the out set of this season I thought we were in for a rough ride based on the fact we fell in a heap when it counted in 2016 and we had some drawn out contract negotiations dominating our pre season.

Who would have guessed 3 of our big names would do a runner and the coach getting sacked. As it turned out it was the catalyst for a massive turn around. Okay we did not win that many but we were in the hunt in basically every match since Cleary took control and this was with a team punching miles above their weight.

So next year for me brings guarded optimism, second year syndrome and so many new faces to introduce into a new club are my big reservations, but with Cleary I have a lot of faith, so bottom of the 8 is a real chance.

2017----low point..Mitchel Moses tanking games to force the club to release him, probably the lowest act I have seen in over 50 years

High point...The arrival of Cleary, He is quite, calm and calculating.

Anyway now time to sit back enjoy the ashes and big bash and dream of whats to come in 2018

HOW MANY DEBUTANTS THIS YEAR
Although we finished 15 th this year the blooding of so many new fresh faces can only hold us in good stead next year mixed with the expierenced players that are coming and a full preseason under Coach IVAN it is going to be something to look forward to.
The following players I would consider as debutants this year
Suli Marsters MWZ The Huth Twal Liddle Sironen and JMK thats 8 I can think of is there anyone I have overlooked.
The official ladder for the end of round 26 is as follows:

14 Wests Tigers 24 7 0 17 2 413 571 -158 18

Note final finishing place is 14

Excited about 2018 except our no7 is keeping me from being overly excited.
I'll give him 5 rounds before I start laying the boot in, hopefully I won't have to and he makes me look stupid.
