Holy cowpad lightning may strike 2 years running with no hooker available....JLJ and McIlwrick isn't the winning option IMO. We are just jinxed I reckon.
Well its nearly time to have a 'CRACK'....Go you :sign:

I'm not sure why any of that is funny. Possibly for supporters of other teams then it becomes almost hilarious

Overall it's not a bad situation for the club. I'd suggest starting either Rankin or JLJ at 9 if Liddle and Ballin are both unavailable in round 1.

Surely if both Ballin and Liddle are unavailable then McIllwrick would get a start? Otherwise IMO it was a complete waste of money and a roster spot signing him. He is the 3rd string hooker and yet he wouldn't even get a run if choice number 1 or 2 aren't available? Sounds like classic Wests Tigers!

Is Mcillwick even in the top 25?

Here we go JLJ and ET to share.

Not sure if McIllwrick is in the top 25. But even still, not sure of the logic behind signing a specialist hooker if he is never gonna get a go even when the 2 best hookers in the club are unavailable, what is the point of signing him? JLJ did a mediocre job of filling in at the start of last season but I think some people are reading a bit much into the fact that we won while he was filling in. Probably just coincidence.

I'm sure you've spent a lot of time watching McIlwrick play and are in a great position to judge his quality and capacity to play 80 minutes...

I do like watching the lower grades, but only if they involve WTS!

Reckon we'll play Mckilwrick

Then next day's headline 'weststigers 4m over the cap due to clause in Kyle Lovett contract that says if Mckilwrick plays 80mins then Robbie Farah gets 66% of Wests Ashfield monthly pokie turnover'

Ahhhh tigers <3

Is scary about Ballin. Was due back early last season, ended up missing the 1st 10 weeks or so, and then when he did play he could hardly stay on the field. I hope there are not setbacks this year.

Ballin - VC after 40 mins of footy for the club - everything about his signing does not sit well with me - and yet he seems to have fan support for offering next to nothing.
He may be great off the field but he takes up part of the cap and he is paid to play in our top 25.
If he has brilliant year all good but already it seems pretty clear there will be limitations on what he can offer.
