Wests Tigers Spine

Post by Dst6._ » Thu 21 Jun, 2018 9:25 am

Hoping the Wests Tigers Spine for this game will be
1. Mbye
6.Reynolds
7.Brooks
9.Farah

Titans won't be able to deal with that

Farah has been in good for & is a must buy for Supercoach

Can't expect miracles on their first run together with not much time to get combinations going.
In saying that.... anything will be an improvement on the last outing.

He is not a "must buy", he is a risky PoD given most of the top ranked people will have the Smith/Cook combo. He also doesn't play round 17 (unlike Smith).

That spine has to be better than anything so far. Brooks has been good considering, farah is experienced and will kill it straight away, moses has been playing good behind a flogged side and hopefully josh is ready to step up. Ive already got my tickets and cant wait for this game, only wish marshall was on the bench aswell for this one.

Combo #146 for the season...

Must be nice for a half to have the same 9 and 6 at least for a couple of games in a row...I believe the Dragoons have had the same spine all season..?

I don't think many people will swap the Cook/Smith combo for Farah.

yeah the constant change in the spine certainly hasn't helped, but hopefully, bodies can stay uninjured and in decent enough for the rest of the year.

Yeah, the bar is pretty low.

Better than what we rolled out Rd 1.

In fairness to Brooks he's had a pretty good season despite the up and down form of his team-mates. You've got blokes like DCE, Cronk, Milford, Morgan, Thurston running around and not doing any better than Brooks; possibly worse depending on your POV.

I think you left off Moses and Norman and a few others but Brooks has had close to 100 games in the NRL..

Brooks has had dummy-half service from Liddle, Killa, Godinet, Reynolds and Taylor. Inconsistent service at best.
He’s had halves partners of Marshall, Reynolds and Gamble. Also hard to gel here.
All things considered he’s having a pretty solid year I reckon

Well I don't rate Moses or Norman, I was trying to provide examples of theoretically or demonstrably good halves not playing well in 2018.

Yeah but he was playing for Souths who have forwards that actually run hard and props that make more than 37m. Let's see how he goes behind Ben Plodulino.

Thats the way I see it to, okay the no9 directs the troops, but you need plenty of troops who have the ability to power onto the ball. but he has to be better than what we have had
