Unfortunately we are not going to see many changes this year it really is a poor roster we have.Cleary is building a stronger team for next year but we are going to have to live with the fact we have little until then.Cleary has managed to get 2 players to the club this year, one is starting and the other is named in the squad we are just going to deal with it.
Our depth this year is inexcusable

Good to see Lovett retain his spot. Despite what the pitch forkers say, he was good last week.
There's nothing wrong with calling out a dud player. Yes he made a lot of tackles, but he still offered little in attack and made a crucial error that led directly to a try
Year of last finals appearance:
2017 - Storm, Roosters, Broncos, Eels, Sharks, Sea Eagles, Panthers, Cowboys
2016 - Raiders, Bulldogs, Titans
2015 - Rabbitohs, Dragons
2013 - Knights
2011 - Tigers, Warriors

We are going to get an absolute thundercocking.

If we show up and have a go for 80 mins that's as good as a win for me.

Might sneak a bluey on us at 13+ for a laugh.
And the sky is filled with light, can you see it?
And the black is really white, if you believe it.
And the longing that you feel, you know none of this is real;
You will find a better place, in this twilight...

Keeping MCK in the starting side and having MWZ in the reserves is a fairly common practice if he's coming back from injury and they're not 100% sure he'll be right to go.

Wouldn't take it as Cleary preferring MCK to MWZ in the centres.

That's what everyone said before the Cowboys match 8-)
I will support Wests Tigers through thick or thin
I will be cheering when they win
I will love the Tigers Till I Die
With loyal supporters we will fly
I love the Tigers with my heart and soul
I just love the club as a whole
If the Wests Tigers believe
We will Unite, Commit and Achieve

It's called "pick and stick". You don't get anywhere making wholesale changes after every loss. You think people would figure this out after Sheens, Potter, Taylor, Cleary all do the same thing, it wasn't just a Tim Sheens obsession.

I'm fine to criticise the coach when there are fan-rated better options available in reserves, but when there's little depth, what do we expect? Rankin in for JLJ? MWZ in for MCK? Backrower X in for Lovett? That would just be shuffling deck chairs on the Titanic.

People ask in the Signings & Rumours thread why would we potentially be in the market for all of Milne, Fonua, Thompson, Rona, Watson. The answer is so when you need to or are forced to make changes, you can pick someone who is of FG quality. That's also the strength of our roster adjustment next year, the money is spread out over a more even squad, not soaked up by 5 or 6 top players.
Pick and stick only makes sense when you are winning
You beat me to it Larry. Some people are happy with mediocrity

Being able to see that replacing one dud with another is a pointless exercise doesnt mean ones happy with mediocrity

Who would you bring in who would do a better job?

This should be good.

Rankin. He's the best of a bad bunch at least until Brooks returns. As much as I have bagged him in the past I think after JLJs performance last week Rankin deserves a shot. If he proves a better fit then we stick with him.

Lol you're scraping the bottom of the barrel of complaints when you complain that Rankin isn't in the team. What's that you're having a go at others for accepting mediocrity? :lol:

This whole argument comes down to if JLJ should be in the team this week or Rankin. You say JLJ, I say Rankin. We each have our opinions.

Think about this for a second. You're one of Rankin's biggest bashers on here. And now you are calling to bring him in. So while you are accusing others for accepting mediocrity, you are doing just that by wanting one of the worst first graders on the planet in your eyes brought in

I admit I've criticised the heck out of Rankin in the past. I just think he's slightly better then JLJ. In all honesty I'd rather neither! Oh well hopefully I'm wrong and JLJ has a blinder but can't see it happening unfortunately.

Mind blown. Haha

I say neither. Neither will do a better job than the other, that's my opinion. No use complaining about what the team is for the rest of the year, it's a write off.
