Gotta say, Been checking out the training pics the club has been posting the last few weeks, and the boys are looking super fit. Every year we get the usual "The boys are training the house down" Spiel. But this is the first time for me that the team are looking sharp athletically and it has stood out.
Gotta felling Ivan has set the bar high and we finally got the coach & trainers to implement the results.
Every year the heart rules the head and I feel optimistic, but this year I really think we can be anything.
I think 2018 might take away the pain :D
I heard the Storm have horrendous preseasons, designed to really test the physical and mental capacity of players. New players to their system are watched very closely. Didn’t put too much credence on it until I saw a photo big Sam Kasiano - wow, he’s pretty much half the size he was, lol.

The Tigers all seem to be singing from the same songsheet so far. All I want to see is some real attitude in defense, you know, different to the last half dozen years I’ve witnessed.
Well Cleary seem have them mentally better towards the end of last season. So if we can combine that with Bodies ready to roll for the full 80 mins we stand a chance of competing. Sounds good in theory.

The media department did a photoshop course in the off season.
Nothing would surprise me with this team anymore. But please don't let it be so!

Our mental fitness will play the biggest part in the 2018 season

Being mentally strong will win us more games , 2017 Cowboys were the perfect example of this

When Cleary and Palmer were last together the Pamfers had the worst injury toll...they did get within a game of the GF tho..
Would it be fair to say the depth they had at Windsor helped them through?
Nigel Plum...

not really a mixture of youth and experienced NRL players

Link to the team that played that Prelim... http://www.rugbyleagueproject.org/seaso ... mmary.html
Nigel Plum. That’s the least Alpha name to give a man. No wonder he made it to NRL level. Like a boy named Sue.

I Just got back from Waterpolo which is a physically demanding sport. Everyone is fit. But The ones that are mentally strong and can give that extra 5% are the ones that shine
Ivan "Billy Beane from Moneyball" Cleary!
It's the Ivan of the tiger, It's the thrill of the fight...

It feels like this is going to be the fittest and toughest mentally we've been since Steve Folkes was here. The only time we've ever been a defensively tough side was under him.
As others have mentioned injuries under Ivan have been a problem in the past. Hopefully that's not the case this season.

We had a pretty good side remember forwards wise when Folkes was here

In no particular order

8 Galloway
9 Farah
10 Payten
11 Ellis
12 Rhino
13 Fulton

14 Gibbs
15 Fifita
16 Woods
17 Dwyer

The scary thing is we have had some ordinary forwards come through , but the amount that have come and gone is scary , when checking the players DOB you forget some of the players

Bodene Thompson
Taupau
Gavet
Matt Bell
Lodge
Corey Paterson
Adam Blair
Nathan Brown
David Gower
Corey Payne
BMM
Eddy Pettybourne
Ben Teo
Danny Galea
Ryan O'Hara
Scott Sattler
Jeff Lima
Ryan Tandy
Bronson Harrison
Luke O'Donnell
Anthony Laffranchi

Not all superstars granted , but a few were very handy

Couple of SOO players , NZers , definitely keepers

We had fairly similar squads in 2011 and 2012. But they didn't have that same steel or edge that they had in 2010 when Folkes was there. We were one scrum away from the big dance...

We were a sprinkler head and a defused bomb away from a GF qualifier in 2011

Minute we lost Gibbs ....... :(

It's scary , a couple of plays go right and we could of gone back to back

Guess every club have the couldas ,shouldas or woulda's in a season but imagine were we might be now

Then again , Sheenius would be a lifetime coach and we'd have probably all gone like Ink by now
