This is a real big test... But for newcastle and parra... we might put 50 on them.
Do you only bet in $50 or do you sometimes put more on them?
I find it funny that our own fans still think we are pretenders. What more do Wests have to do!

"This is the real big Test" for who. I believe that would be Newcastle and Parra.

Don't matter if I put $50, $100 or $1000, because I will be putting it on the team to beat, Wests Tigers.

so far I think every game this year we have been underdogs (maybe now the Parra game) and tigers teams of the past tend to lose the games that we SHOULD win. we have knights and eels the next few weeks.

After yesterday seeing we now have won in Brookie and Melbourne and Beating the roosters. usually every year that is 3 auto losses we have locked in without even thinking about it, that this team actually has me that we are for real. However.. we can't fall into the trap of the old tigers teams and lose to the teams we are suppose to beat.

This is the first game we should be favourites and people are starting to take us serious now. so this is a complete trap game
Agree with you mate. These are the games which will test how strong our mentality really is. It's easy to get up for games when you're the outsiders but harder when you're the favourites.

Like you said, over the years we have notoriously lost the games we were expected to win, so if we beat both the Knights and Eels then I will really start to believe we have changed for the better. I could see in that Eels game the old Tigers creep back in by not being able to close out the match efficiently and then we lost intensity in defence. Almost happened again in the Manly game. Those types of clock-offs is why I'm still not convinced on our mentality just yet. Not complaining overall on how we are going though... just wary of our history!

Lighten up Chief - it was a joke (you know what they are - don't you?)

A play on words - you know someone says put 50 points on them and someone turns it around to $50 as a bet.

Oh! forget it .... you wouldn't wake up if a tram hit you.

I knew what you meant. Not sure why you took offence at my post. It was barely relating to you or your comment. That is why I post the betting line last instead of posting 2 comments.

My point is... The team is confident, the coach is confident, I am confident and have been since the start of the season. Hardly being cocky as stated earlier.

And as for waking up to myself, I doubt I would wake up if the Newcastle or Parra pack hit me but I'll have $50 on waking up if Mats hits me.

Quietly confident we'll get the job done again here, other than Stinky they don't pose a threat.
If our D continues then Stinky gets limited opportunity to do his thing.

Yes that eels game had me thinking it was 2012 again with that 31-0 lead that turned into 31-30 and even at 32-0 against Manly I still didn't feel safe till about 5 mins to go.

we do however seem to play 80 mins against GOOD teams in close games. Benj really hasn't learned he still does the same thing with big leads. we were up against manly big and he starts going sideways again and gets excited then we start making mistakes. what was working was up the middle if we kept that up would have won by 50

the little things like that worry me

To be fair Newcastle played to a very high standard and feel the head bins disrupted us. A missed opportunity but not the end of the world.
