I like Cleary however it’s mind boggling to bring back Lolihea after how well Thompson was playing. Flies in the face of what he stands for which is rewarding perfoemance.
This has me confused as well, Tui is poor, was poor in ISP yet got promoted :x
Go hard or go home

You would be in the minority on this forum believing Cleary is immune from any kind of criticism despite how good of a job he’s done.
Still haven’t answered the question mate.
If he gets dropped, he gets dropped. No complaints from me.
You still haven’t answered the question lol. So predictable. You’d make a living being a politician.

You want accountability, but you still can’t bring yourself to say that Tui should be dropped, yet you expect it from the coach
Dude, now its just becoming tiresome.

Here are my thoughts on Tui that i posted in the team thread against the Raiders an hour ago.

I’m a big Tui fan, but this would be the first week I wouldn’t complain about him being dropped. I have defended him because I know he has the talent, but it’s not happening atm, he’s not mentally tough enough. I’d run with Kev, the guy is in career best form.

You specifically asked “ what happened to accountability” yet up until one hour ago you were happy to have Tui in the team. You were happy for Tui to be choosen against the sharks. So make up your mind please or do you have a set of rules for yourself and a set of rules for the coach. Your quote to defend yourself is about next week and your finally happy to have Tui dropped. So then why are you criticising the coach for having him their in the first place . You make no sense.

Especially the back 5.. Robson in ISP deserves a call up. Forwards Garner, felise
You do realise there is difference between an NRL and an ISP contract - don't you?

I mentioned something similar in another thread about a clean out. You release a lot of “deadwood” on minimum contracts and you have to replace them with others on minimum contracts. Pretty basic understanding of how the cap works.

Im proud of our forward pack. They aim up most weeks. Proud to call myself a Wests supporter.

We were spoon favourites at the start of the year. Not June 30 yet and this year definitely not over.
We will smash em 50+ get on.

If asked if middle of the pack would have been possible at this point at the beginning of the season, most of us would have been happy to go with it.

I don't think they try to throw the season away.

Hopefully they can turn this thing around.

Sure, not all performed to a high standard today and just like last week, WT let a game get away, but the boys were in the game up to their necks until the final minutes of each and against good opposition at that.

As many here had stated that they expected our team to be low on the ladder, maybe the throwing is simply toys from cots.

and let's not forget, we've without a doubt had some games absolutely stolen from us due to disgusting refereeing decisions.

I’m not sure everyone is living on Earth at the moment. We are well behind the Panthers, Roosters and Sharks who are the last 3 teams to beat us. We should have won two of those games. I’m a happy camper atm the effort from the boys is first rate.

We need to accept until we get another 3-4 top liners we will only win games against top teams with high completions, solid defence and opposition teams being frustrated.

Healthy Liddle, Mbye will make a big difference but we need more troops can’t play with 25 top tier players and 1m left in the cap and expect to be a finals side.

Decision is Cleary’s whether he adds them now or takes a longer term view and waits. I hope he waits I’ve grown very patient as a Magpies and now Tigers fan over the years.

People saying that we are where we should be on the ladder and we’ve already exceeded expectations is a cop out!
This mob is more than capable of what’s been on show in the last 2 months !

There either slow learners or just dumb !

I'm not so patient as tyga. we need to continue to perform at our best this year if are going to attract good players. Unless we are in top 8 or close, good players will not come to WT unless we pay over the odds as we have with reynolds,packer & matalino.They are not elite players in any event. Very expierenced and proven but not match winners. we need a clean out of deadwood and chase a couple of big front rowers with punch and couple of fast backs.
