I wouldn't pencil us in for bottom 5. Tigers are a very unpredictable side over 80 minutes, let alone over the stretch of a few months. Anyway there is one common denominator over all these years of Tigers rocks and diamonds, Tim Sheens. He always says he is angry, but the players probably take scarce notice given there are never any real shake up to the place, Our inability to close out games professionally has happened way to many times over the years to ignore.

We will probably still scrape into the finals and might even go on a run. However a change would do us good whilst we stil have a decent player roster. We should be more consistent.

Matt bell is the glue that is holding the ruck together.

He gets subbed off and we fall to bits
He is the new Gibbs in that regard.
More Gareth Ellis I think.

I think this was Sheens' bench rotation plan again. And I am not just bagging him because it is the in thing to do, but using one sub for the last 20 and another for the last 5-10 is pointless. The other guys get exhausted from the excessive game time they have to play to the point where we don't have enough fresh legs.

Then follow someone else if you can't take it.

Didn't Parra beat the reigning premiers just a few weeks ago and take the in form Cronulla to the wire ?
I reckon Parra might win a few from here on ... And I reckon we will end up closer to top five than bottom five.

I don't like my team being called rubbish

knuckles there is only one word to discribe that performance, and that is rubbish whether you like it or not. If anyone thinks we will be near the top five are dreaming. Our left edge has more holes than a sieve with lote at the helm, we have a 500,000 player who doesn't know where he fits in with our expansive style of play. I just don't see us getting any further than 9th come september.

Apart from switching off in the last 15 I was pretty happy. 65 minutes beats the usual 40 we play. Lawrence scored, looked like he was starting to hit some rhythm. I don't understand why everyone is so down on the performance.

Calling "our team" rubbish is harsh and uncalled for. If you want to label them that way, well thats up to you.
But I will look forward to reminding you come semi finals time.

Suck it up princess if you don't like it. What they showed in the last 20 was nothing but RUBBISH. Truth hurts for some.

They were rubbish. Any team who concedes 30 points in 13 mins deserves to be laballed as RUBBISH, PATHETIC, EMBARRESSING and any other surpearlatives you can get your tounge around. With a name like knuckles i'd have thought you'd have a thicker skin

we could go undefeated from here on out, but it doesn't change the fact that the last 15 minutes were rubbish. We did not complete a single set of 6 and let in 5 tries. That's a textbook definition of rubbish.

Never in my life have I seen a U13's side yet alone a 1st grade professional rugby league club leak 5 tries in 12 minutes.

You have to be very concerned and as fans, we are allowed to be rightfully disappointed.

Our defense last game against Penrith and then the first 65 minutes versus Parra was outstanding. We have to give the boys credit for at least bouncing back from the soft tag in the media. I'm also happy to see Lawrence running the ball strongly, Woods hit ups/off loads/defense, Farah running the ball a little more, BMM getting some points and overdue confidence, Bell getting some well earned credit for his defense and Reddy finally showcasing his ability to run, off load and defend strongly.

As for the final 13 minutes of the game - absolute rubbish! To allow the bottom of the table side to score 5 tries is just unbelievable. We just destroyed a perfect chance to improve our for and against.

Lote Tuquri just has to go. Sheens has protected him for long enough. I have no idea how Lote can be out of breath so often when he has no where near the same workload as the forwards or the rest of the team. He can't run, tackle or even stand in the correct position. Absolutely useless and a total waste of a man on the field. I have no idea what Sheens continues to see in him. Lote - you are the weakest link - GOOD BYE!

Thank you .... The last 15 mins was rubbish ..... Bit different to your initial post.
Oh and thanks for the name calling .... I'm probably writing to a 12 year old.

How is it different? That last 15 minutes of rubbish showed us a lot, which was my point.

A 12 year old would tell someone to follow someone else just because they are rightfully critical.

I hate people telling me my club is rubbish or my clubs a failure.

Yeah they let us down a lot and make us go grey and bald .... And there's probably more downs than ups.
But the Tigers are still my team and I'm sticking up for them. So you can like it or lump it !

Well they are rubbish when they let in five tries in 15 minutes. There is no other word to describe it.

Don't go and tell me to follow someone else when I call it as I see it. If you are happy with it, good for you.
