16 teams is too much and not enough talent to go around.

We can never complete with out of Sydney teams as they offer better 3rd party deals, a lifestyle and opportunities outside of NRL.

At least we had 2005 and Marshall at his prime.

I think the problem is our rich guy won't chuck in as much as their rich guys do. It doesn't matter how many teams are about the place. It's a money thing. If we splashed the cash, the coaches and players would come. Alas....he won't and neither will they.

I'm not commenting on who will pay additional cash but it's pretty easy to get a player. You just outbid everyone else.

Our club always leaves the fans in the lurch until around kick-off time. What's the use of going to all the trouble to attend the match at Olympic Park when our club carries on like that?

Disagree

If the 16 teams were more strategically positioned I think you could attract far more players and fans to the game

2 NZ teams

2 SE Qld teams

1 PNG team

1 Darwin side (I think kids would switch quite readily in the NT to league over AFL , especially seeing it would be their only sporting side at a national level

Melbourne

Cowboys

Canberra

Gold Coast

Newcastle

5 Sydney sides

Going to be another tough night at the office, we will get beaten by plenty, but with you two main props out all the effort in the world aint going to help.

Would have loved to see us at full strength against Souths especially with them down on form and with us seeking redemption after last weeks debacle, it would have been a real contest. No Woods and no Grant equals a crap night yet again

At a guess, we'll see Sue to prop, Sironen to lock and Lovett or Halatau to starting on the edge.
Griffin or Edwards onto the bench.
Grant out, MCK in. Source a current tiger. He also confirmed JT is hamstrung by 2nd tier cap due to mismanagement.

Agree. The Burgess brothers will probably be labelled immortals after tonight.

Interesting.
Weird that he'd get a run now when we could probably do with an extra middle forward. Gives us the following:

Ava
Farah
Sue
Sirro
Lawrence
Halatau

MCK
Aloiai
Lovett
Felise

Is is because MCK's dad went on a rant about how his son wasnt getting a Gig

My mind wonders

Griffo got picked for PNG, i personally would like to see him play in the FG team for us

I was told the cap was preventing Jordan Grant and Rod Griffin from getting a start. 5 players being paid by tigers are elsewhere.

Although he probably won't shine as much tonight getting 30 mins off the bench, he definitely deserves his spot. He is quality

Should've been in the team since Round 1
