I think our boys will keep the Kapow man well and truly covered,I'm sure he will know he is playing against his ex teammates,who are a very determined team on the rise...Go hard and often at the Silver tails and leave them in your tracks Tigers...
You may see me struggle...but you will never see me quit... :D

is it supposed to be a warm night at Leichhardt? Stormy muggy conditions on a muddy track will not suit their big pigs.

get on tigers head to head

manly is a new team who will eventually come good but when you have a five eigth who is a centre and was only signed 3 weeks before season start you;re going to struggle.

new hooker, new fullback (ish), new coach. It would take something significant for us to lose. The tigers as bad as we were last year we have remained relatively stable for the past 24 months and that will show in the first few weeks with other sides who have overturned their rosters,

Manly we can beat but sides like the storm, dogs and Sharks I can't say the same.

Taupau is a weapon. What a player. He basically kept Manly in that game.

Doubts about some of his tackling - In the 50th minute Jordan Rankin scored his first try as a Tiger – the home side handed good field position thanks to an ugly tackle by Martin Taupau on his former teammate Moses minutes earlier. This may have been the turning point of the game.

He was good.... but he seemed to pick the little guys all night and gloat about dominating them, not much of an enforcer, crab-walked to find one.

Maybe I didnt notice it when watching him one-eyed, but I dont miss him...

What is it with this love for the Storm -- they had a lucky 2point win over Saints who were flogged by Cronulla and couldn't put the Titans away until mid way through the 2nd half.

I bet you he has 700 thousand reasons why he doesn't.

Still haven't got over Marty leaving.

Add him Koro and and Austin and Farah in our 17 anytime.

I believe they have a great club culture (except the scandals) and they have a winning culture built on the big 3 over a decade. A stability, proffesionalism and a team cohesiveness that the tigers should aspire to.

If they're up against halves that can make a difference, part of his job is to smash them( just the same as Cordner did to them last year, also Pritchard, and others)
It's a fact of life, as Thurston would agree.
Taupau will get better as the season goes.

Hot and cold tonight, certainly caused us problems with the ball in hand although he came up with a couple of errors and we did swamp him several times which shut him up. A shame he's not with us still as I think he would thrive with the way the Tigers are playing at the moment but he took the cash and ran so good luck to him.

At times Taupau played great tonight, then at times he was gassed and let in tries. He was up and down all night
