The rest of them played horribly!

Solid debut by Taylor, it was very rare for the tigers to make a tackle and he wasn't there helping out, the bloke made 50 tackles, he ran up with his forwards and did all the 1% like he said he would.
Bottom line was he tried.. Which is more than can be said for most of his pals

Good game ET. Great defence. Kidwell hasn't had a chance to ruin him yet.

Take your one eyed glasses off, he was just as bad as the rest of the team.
Sometimes I wonder milky if you even actually watch the games
I was at the game

Honestly saw nothing special, at one point i forgot he was playing.

Could be the fact that i was watching live, ill have a look at the replay on tv later

That's the thing milky a lot of what ET does goes unnoticed, he was one of our best out there, tackling his ring off and was even involved in the only try we scored. You'll notice once you watch the replay...

Noticed him playing second receiver a fair bit. Good to have another playmaking option

We did not sign ET to take loads of hitups; he did defend well and got involved in plenty of ball movement. I like what I saw from just a few days with the team.

I thought he was good too. Without his quality defense the margin would have been far greater. Sound debut.

A very good performance. Set up our only try, made 50 tackles... 4 runs for 43 meters showed the runs he made were good, but a couple more would be handy. But it's not his primary role.

Thought he had a stellar game
Went to the line, passed well, tackled all day, got up and ran back into the defensive ling again.

So much of him reminded me of Gareth Ellis

I hope he was wasnt thinking why the hell he signed with the tigers after some of the effort from the boys around him

Someone should warn him to stay right away from Kidwell

Really felt sorry for ET watching this Interview today on the WT site
http://www.weststigers.com.au/news/2016 ... to_jo.html

He said he hung in there for as long as he could to get game time but he couldn't wait anymore.
Guess that's how some of our NSW Cup side boys would feel too.

Best bit about ET is Panthers loss our gain
That is the best signing we have had in years.

Congrats on your debut

He leads the line speed but isn't a dominant defender , we need players like Sue , Grant to finish blokes off and then get the attackers into positions where they can't get quick play the balls

Will be interesting to see if they can work out how to get him to work for our benefit ??

He appears to be playing the role of third halve, a role which could solve the mystery behind why Brooks and Moses haven't been firing as a combination. We saw a glimpse of that with Elijah's great pass to Brooks which resulted in a try.

I've been screaming myself hoarse wanting Brooks to hit the ball at speed and attack the opposition at speed

And look what happens when he does :D

Taylor could be the best signing we have had in a a long time. It is sad how bad he makes some of our players look
