Coaching Insider: NRL Round 10

Thu 11th May, 10:30AM

Wests Tigers Head Coach Ivan Cleary spoke to the media on Thursday ahead of his side’s big Round 10 clash against the South Sydney Rabbitohs on Friday night.

After a positive first month under the new Coach with four competitive performances, Cleary said his team was determined to continue their improved efforts this weekend.

“I’m really looking forward to the game tomorrow night,” Cleary enthused.

“We’re pretty confident that we can deliver a good performance.

“The biggest difference for this game is that we didn’t have a game last weekend, so every team’s preparation is a little bit different with players in various rep teams.

“But we’ve prepared well over a two-week period with a good percentage of the team with us, and we’re certainly looking forward to improving again this weekend.

“The best we can prepare is by playing the best we can,” he said.

“Our guys are very motivated for the game and looking forward to the challenge… we’ve got a pretty decent pack ourselves and we’ll certainly back our own players.”

I like Cleary's dead bat responses to reporters constant questions about retention and recruitment...

Focus on this weeks game...

I noticed that Ivan said Brooks was a big part of the team and he knew what was expected of him. As opposed to Taylor who used to say that the halves shouldn't have to much pressure put on them. I think Brooks needs to understand that he has a big job to do with leading the team around the park, his performances over the last 2 weeks have showed that he seems to be starting to understand that.

Me thinks it has to do with Moses's departure and probably a newfound enthusiasm post contract signing. Just hope it carries it forward knowing Reynolds will be playing first receiver next year.
