I think Rod is ahead of Billy, and I'm attempting to use his big minutes & mobility until we see how the new Interchange evolves.

I have also split my 6/7 to playing either side of the ruck on the back of Ballin taking Aaron, Jessie, Ava & Graham down the park. This should open up the edges for speed, and I feel Lawrence & Edwards are better defenders than Siro at this stage.

I see no relevance in picking the same structure as 2015, as we saw how that went. Taylor must try something new, and I feel this is a better option (or worth trying). Doing the same thing over and over is simply madness.

I think Ballin over Robbie is madness. Robbie is the SOO hooker and has been one of the best hookers in the game for a long time. You'd have to give him first shot and see how Ballin goes off the bench or in reserves.

Nofoaluma is the most under pressure player in the team.

Apart from Robbie who has Ballin breathing down his neck and Cherrington in the wings and a coach who is waiting for him to stuff up and drop him.
Ivan "Billy Beane from Moneyball" Cleary!
It's the Ivan of the tiger, It's the thrill of the fight...

Based on training and fitness tests being completed this week the current top 17 in opposed teams training is:
Team #1
Tedesco
Addo-Carr
Naquima / was replaced by Rankin when he corked his thigh
Noffa
Moses
Brooks
Woods
Farah ( fittest in 5 seasons, both in skin fold and general speed/stamina)
Sue
Sironen
Lawrence
Edwards starts at 13, then considered part of prop rotation , when replaced by Halatau, Sironen moving from 2nd row to lock
Int:
Ava
Chee Kam
Halatau
Cherrington

Team #2
Hunt
Kharwin
Seve
Heleta
Peni
Rankin
Littlejohn
Griffin
Ballin (still in rehab Cherrington has been filling in)
Buchanan
Tyler Cassell
Kyle Lovett
Jesse Parahi
Int:
Dalla Graham
Liolelave
Josh Aloiai / Asipeli Fine (hamstring strain)
Billy McConnachie ( being considered as part of prop rotation, struggling a little with fitness - all props have to play a minimum of 50 minutes, Woods likely to play min 60 minutes)

The two first grade positions up for grabs in round 1 are 1 wing and 1 centre. Taylor not keen on returning Naquima to wing, Addo Carr much better under the high ball.
Chee Kam would be next in line for centre position at this stage even though he prefers to play 2nd row.
Rankin considered a play maker, will put genuine pressure on Brooks / Moses. Brooks fitness is way behind Moses at this stage.
The biggest bolters for first grade / top 25 are Tyler Cassell & Addo Carr whose sprint times match Korobete.
Woods and Lawrence to be appointed joint captains.
Taylor will start the season with 2 hookers, but ideally only wants to play 1.
Ballin unlikely to be fit to be considered for 1st grade until round 3-4, will likely start off in State Cup.
Only informal discussions with Ivan Cleary at this stage, he wants $500k and a 3 yr deal.
Taylor will be given to round 12 then a contract performance trigger would allow for his termination / however if Tigers don't win at least 50% of games prior to round 12 then negotiations could start as early as round 6.
Harry is already active in TPSs for Woods; Teddy; Brooks ; Moses. He stands ready for Klemmer
Tigers will go all out for Klemmer in 2017. They are prepared to pay both Woods & him $750k per season rising to $900k in 3rd year of contract + attractive TPAs . I'm still not confident we will get him, but whoever does they will have to pay top dollar.
We remain active in player market albeit our offers for Brenton Lawrence; Tim Grant; Tim Lafai were way below what other clubs were able to offer. I'm not worried, provided we can snare someone like Klemmer.
Lawrence will be offered $400k per season to remain with club in 2017-2018.
Final scoop - Farah will 90% leave the club at the end of 2016 for ESL. This will be a definite if NSW wins origin. Tigers will give him a golden handshake of approx $750k! Likely to return down the track as club ambassador / marketing role. He has made no secret that with his economics degree he believes he could handle CEO role down the track either at the Tigers or NRL.

Thanks TT. Very informative and good to see a couple of young players putting pressure on for NRL spots. We have an outstanding and youthful backline in team 2 which augers well for the future.

Thanks Harry T for his ongoing support for the club. We have some trash on this forum who continue to denigrate his efforts to support the club. I don't understand it but suggest it has something to do with his love of the Balmain Tigers.

Sorry guys typo - omitted Simona from Team #1. He's training really well and has regained his pace and acceleration.
