Yeah I know deano. I was scratching my head initially see the other team get the penalty in the Toyota Cup. Teams will learn to play the ball properly quickly or suffer the consequences as long as the refs are consistent with it.

I didn't like them when I saw the photos, but last night on the field, I thought they looked good. Idid wonderif they'd been spelled with a dirt repellant though, since no-one looked dirty :lol:

Seems like a rusty old first hit out by three of the four sides last night.

Oh well it's not like our trial form against NRL teams has ever been spectacular. Missing three of our best ruck defenders it didn't suprise to see the inroads made by Parra at the fringe of the ruck

Our gear needs to look Sharp, modern and represent our club, a club thats 10 years old BTW, with an appeal towards younger generation. Forget dead clubs with dated Vs, Hoops and collars. I do not want to see some design which harks back to a era 50 years ago, of which I have no connection, nor care about. We have the retro designs and heritage round. That is enough. It's all about the kids. And kids don't like or want what some old Maggie or balmain supporter thinks a 'rugby league' jersey should like.

... plus Matt Ryan, Jarred Farlow, Al & Jase Schirnack, Sam Latu, Eloni Vunakece, Matt Davidson, Matt Hyland, Junior Roqica, Rhys Curran, Mitch Achurch etc etc etc.

Aside from Pearn, Akeripa, Davis & Mullaney the BRET team is primarily made-up of Balmain stalwarts!

Dumb post MM!

Stick to the topic people. This thread is about last night's trial, not about having a go at one another.

Agreed. Why couldn't the ground announcer have informed us of who the additional bench players were?

really?
which part?
it looks like the worst jersey ever. Since when are we all white???
Yeah AD i agree... i love the new alternate kit....
and kul... then what are we ?? all orange ?? or all black ??... whites the colour that seperates Balmain to Wests...
... they loko better thean the jersey we've had the past 3 years... its about time we tried something new....
Cant wait to see the home Kit...


:sign:
I agree i love the new strip. They look modern and uniquely Wests Tigers, not some Balmain v Wests battle again.

I also think the boys look more dominating in these jerseys.

Good crowd too - great to beat the ping pong crowd.

As for on-field, well its a trial, no injuries and a chance to blow out some4 cobwebs. I am sure we will turn in a better performance next week.

No programs there.....maybe he printed one off the night before, but oh yeh, they were incomplete.
He's a wanker anyhow
