Grub is just the guy to bring Brooks out of his shell. Hopefully the chemistry works on the field.

I think there was an article on McQueen saying that he is building into contact work. Still its good to see him there on Day1
Ivan "Billy Beane from Moneyball" Cleary!
It's the Ivan of the tiger, It's the thrill of the fight...

You can add Marshall to that list as well. I believe he's on WC duties doing commentary.

3 Observations from Day One

Wests Tigers players formally resumed pre-season training today at Concord Oval, with testing on the field and in the gym kicking off the 2018 pre-season.

The day marked a new dawn at Wests Tigers with a number of new faces arriving at the club for the first time — players such as Josh Reynolds, Ben Matulino, Chris McQueen and Corey Thompson appearing in the doors at Concord on Thursday morning.

Life Member Benji Marshall will arrive in the next fortnight, while the Club’s World Cup players will begin their pre-season training after the competition of their rep duties.

For those that were present at Wests Tigers on the day, it was certainly an exciting and busy morning with a few key points coming out of the start to season 2018.


* * * * *


1. Josh Reynolds off to a flying start

One of the high-profile arrivals in season 2018, Josh Reynolds ended the 2017 season with an ankle injury that would seemingly hamper the start to his pre-season training. Or not. After arriving back from the United States on holidays, Reynolds was flying through the Club’s time trials on Day 1 (we’ll keep his time to ourselves), and was looking extremely sharp with the ball in hand. His combination with Luke Brooks too was going along perfectly; the pair had trained together a few times in the off-season and looked to be having a great time together at training on Day 1. Certainly good signs for Wests Tigers fans and the halves ahead of 2018!


2. Rookies arrive in great condition

A number of the 2017 rookies and players yet to debut actually kicked off their training earlier in the week and were today joined by the rest of the squad, but one thing was certain about the group — they’re in top condition. The development players all looked to be handling the transition to full-time training well, while 2017 Rookie of the Year Jacob Liddle was absolutely motoring through the beep-test. Esan Marsters also had some special news for us; he’s come back from the off-season lighter than he was at the end of last season and in better physical shape after a challenge from Coach Ivan Cleary. The 21-year-old handled himself well in the top grade after getting an opportunity midway through 2017 and it’ll be interesting to see if he can lock down a spot in Round 1 with plenty of competition for spots in the backs and edges.


3. Genuine excitement within the ranks

It might sound cliché, but there is no denying the genuine excitement within the ranks at Wests Tigers after the arrival of several new players. Chris McQueen had his first time running since next surgery and commented as to how exciting it was to see all the new faces on board; Josh Aloiai said it was the most buzz he’d seen in a little while as well! Even Coach Ivan Cleary was spotted with a smile on his face from time to time, with Ronnie Palmer running the boys through their pre-season tests. And with more players to arrive in the coming weeks, that excitement could be around for a little while longer!

Brooks in the photos looked about the fittest that I can recall seeing him and was interesting to read in Tacky's post that he and Reynolds had a few sessions together over the off season. Professionalism.

Oh yeah, don't forget to keep that iPad away from your daughter :roll:

Even though there was a lot to like over the last couple of months, I could not get myself motivated. Seeing these new guys in ours colours though gives my enthusiasm a booster shot.

I'm curious as to what Cleary's plans are for Masters. With the arrivals of Milne and Fonua I'd have thought Masters was desrined for the backrow. It seems like he'll be staying in the centres for now.

Either way, I think Esan was playing at around the 115kg mark this year, which is a lot of weight for his height. If he can keep it down and transform any further excess into muscle, he may well be able to improve enough to keep his spot in the face of increased competition.

Hey Luke...will your mum let you go to Northies?

Reynolds is going to be great for Brooksy. He'll build his confidence and be a good foil. Let's just hope his legs hold out.

Is that the injury that kept him out for the second half of the year? Unless he snapped it in half, idk why he'd still be hampered by it.

Yeah, it was reported as ankle syndemosis, but then I heard he had stress fractures as well and they were trying to see if it would heal on its own as opposed to surgery.

Pre season training for 2019 will start about 15 minutes after the Roosters result in Round 1

Benji: “I cried, not going to lie. I got very emotional about the thought of what it would be like to come back."
