Hats off to coach Sheens again the team is certainly taking shape other than a bit of poor play regarding tries and a few defence lapses helped in part by the REFS we certainly are getting it together credit today for that.Can we win the minor premiership?

How crucial is that loss now to Souths? I hate the "if we won" lines but geez, if we were up there with the Dragons now they'd really get the hippy hippy shakes.

The loss to Souths is still painful, I recall the souths fans going crazy as I left ANZ however as strange as it may sound Wests Tigers seem to need those sort of loses to refocus although we supporters don't need it and I'm sure Sheens doesn't either.

Weren't we ready to sack Sheens like 4 weeks ago?

I find it hard to keep up on here.

Sheens is a real good coach but he is a terrible selector.

As for the team the last 2 weeks we have been good. If Lawrence passed the ball better today we would have put a good score on. Our defence was real good.

Lets hope Lui doesn't get a couple off weeks on the sideline and that when Gibbs comes back Sheens picks the right team - i.e. Fifita over Skando.

Totaly agree,we should have put Parra away early today,hope they learned from that,Fafita was Ok today,he is miles in front of Skando.

When the Tigers played Souths they were not prepared mentally for that clash by the Coach hence the barrage of Sack the Coach I was one... because that night it was NOT good enough to be beaten in that fashion.

My only concern how many years will Sheens contract be extended by if say, we make the preliminaries this year? I reckon to earn himself a new contract he should be made to get us to the finals next year just the assure this year wasn't a one off. But keeping him this year has definitely proved to be a success, I think after a promising season last year with many positives to come out of the last 10 weeks, coach deserved to be given one final chance to prove himself and I'm glad he was given it.

Really, the games against Souths this year have given us a big jolt and we've responded by winning games immediately after them. After that game at the SCG and the game two weeks ago, I just could see us as a top 4 team. It is funny how things work out.
