You guys are all whingers.

I couldn't care less where the Tigers play, as long as they are playing.

If you are unhappy about having one less 'home' game then make the trip to Aukland to watch them - SImple.

We should support the Tigers through thick or thin, it doesn't matter where they play - We will still support them.
Ticket prices are high enough for the average punter, as is, so buying a plane ticket to NZ and accomodation is probably well beyond most.

A game against the premiers wouldn't have been my choice but if I was taking the premiers somewhere what better place than the bush so the people can see a team like Melbourne get smashed by us.

I find it disappointing because I was under the impression our two home-away-from-home games would be played in areas that don't regularly see rugby league. It's funny, there's always complainers for every decision the club makes. And then there's also some that would defend every decision the club makes, even if they decided to relocate to shanghai. Diversity of opinion at it's best.

2016 - Raiders, Bulldogs, Titans
2015 - Rabbitohs, Dragons
2013 - Knights
2011 - Tigers, Warriors

Was on board with the two regional game idea, but am peeved that one is in NZ for a start. Will be really pissed off if the second game is similarly staged.

Difference is I suppose we already have 3 home grounds.
Speaking of having 3 home grounds, so do the Dragons, and they took a game to a 4th home ground this season (SCG). Again, i don't see their supporters complaining about their nomadic existence.

We need to aspire to be the best club in Sydney, not just be happy to be like saints. They're not exactly flushed with cash so how about we aim a bit higher.

Dragons are playing 5 games each at Kogarah & Wollongong next year. No wonder their fans are not complaining.

Id say every club should aspire to be the best club in Sydney. Don't think there is anything too profound in that statement.

As I said before, if your worried about the bank balance, the best fix is a winning football team and to give away your home ground advantage to play the best team in the comp, tells me they don't share the same view as me.

Sure take one game a year to the bush, interstate at a pinch and take the game on a rotation basics from our three home grounds over three years.

As a long term member I am far from happy

Dragons have put 5 on qt both Suburban grounds in 2018 to help please members and win more games.

Meanwhile we play at 5 different "home" grounds.

They're trying to please everyone but are pleasing very few.
Very weak from the top.

Wests Tigers to take home game to Tamworth

Thu 12th October, 06:45PM

Wests Tigers have confirmed that the club will be playing a home game in regional New South Wales in 2018.

Wests Tigers have partnered with the NRL on this initiative, with the club set to take a 2018 home game to Tamworth for the first time.

The club is no stranger to the New England region having spent time in the area as a part of the NRL’s Community Carnival at the start of the year. Wests Tigers visited more than 8,000 students at 20 schools and held a number of junior clinics. Tamworth also hosted the 2016 City Country game with the City team featuring Chris Lawrence and David Nofoaluma. Lawrence Captained City to a 44-30 win.

Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe said that the club was excited to be a part of this NRL initiative next season.

“Rugby League has a long history in Australia’s regional communities and we’re proud to be playing a role in continuing this by taking a game to Tamworth,” said Pascoe.

“We take our role in growing the game seriously and this initiative provides a great way to be able to allow fans to see an NRL premiership game played locally for the very first time.”

Tamworth Region Mayor Col Murray is looking forward to welcoming Wests Tigers to Tamworth in 2018.

“This is a great opportunity for our community and rugby league fans from across the region to share in the excitement of an NRL round,” said Cr Murray. “It also kicks another goal for Tamworth in showcasing we are a strong regional centre with high quality sporting facilities and an enviable way of life.”

Liking the game to Tamworth, a good thing for country footy. Hopefully we can build a fan base over the years up there

Much much better idea than the NZ game at Mt Smart.

I guess we have to wait until ANZ choose our games before we find out who the opponents in Tamworth will be
