Too small?

Corey Thompson @ 179 cm
Bill Slater @ 179 cm
Matty Bowen @ 175 cm
Shannon Gallant 100cm.
Come-on Bogan you jest .... I'm quickly learning who the stirrers are on the forum .... so far I've got Cultured Bogan and Geo. I am sure there are many more but I'll wait until they pop up.

Have we cancelled the Tuesday afternoon team announcement in 2018?

Seems that way with all this rubbish about a trial side being the finished and final product.
Ivan dropping tui to NSW cup and playing Corey Thompson at fullback shows that tui’s fullback spot is not locked in at all.
David Nofoaluma came off the bench last week. And we signed Chris McQueen to play reserve grade.

All makes sense yeah.

Trails are the be all and end all. :lol:
Especially happy trails.

It's up to Corey on Saturday night to prove to Ivan he should be our fullback in Round 1

I would like Tyson Gamble have a run at full back. Has the attributes plus is our best goal kicking choice

Im sure Gamble wouldn't like that idea at all.

He is a winger who can play fullback and is a very good goal kicker.
Why didn't he kick goals against Cowboys then :brick: But I hope he is our secret weapon, as we are a little short of decent goal kickers at this club :deadhorse:

I got confused too, why sign so many edge first graders. Now I kind of get it, because it forces the guys to work and work hard.

I had wondered if Nofo might be a causality of whats going on. He seemed to be a decent winger, but clearly with Corey, MWZ, Kevie, Founa and others snapping at that those two spots he has to perform or loose the position. Personally I hope Tui Pushes Corey out to the wing, but happy too see us roll with the best scorers on the day.

Tough competition for a back spot with the tigers. Hope this does not muck up us finding good combinations as we seem to be chopping and changing a lot. Either way should give us a strong starting 17.

Big difference mate.....

Coming off the bench and playing reserve grade is different to playing another postition.

If you saw Nofo get switched position wise it obviously shows that Ivan is experimenting other positions.

Same goes with Thompson it shows that Ivan is considering that he could play fullback, and wants to see how he goes.....

So yeah it does make a lot of sense lol

They are trials most teams are not playing to their usual shapes or combinations. Place NO value in trials. The squads selected have zero bearing on the round 1 team.

Zero bearing? Disagree completely.

You simply do not play a member of the spine in a reserve grade trial when your attempting to form combinations. There is no logical reason to do that. The fact is, if round one was picked today, Thompson would be fullback. May change after saturday, but i doubt it.

It will be a battle between the 2 games for the number 1 spot. With Thompson slightly infront right now.

People seem to forget that before he went to the Dogs he starred in the QLD Cup at fullback and had never played on the wing but the dogs had Barba but he was playing so well they needed to find somewhere for him because he was playing so well so he played wing.

So fullback is his natural position and I have a feeling we might get a surprise at just how well he goes at FB

Agree 100% with KS on this, particularly given the number of personnel changes the Tigers have had during the off-season. We have a new spine which is going to take time to gel and a number of outside back and forward options to consider. Smashing it on the training paddock and during a game are two different things.

It’s the same every year with all teams.
I’m not saying the coach is set on his team either way all I am saying is the lineups will have zero bearing on our team for the regular season. What is happening in training is more important as coaches don’t show their hand in the offseason. You won’t see a single attaching setup this week or last used in round 1.

I just wouldn’t read into the starting lineups this week as meaning it’s the favoured team to take the field.
