Just announce the team..You know who's going and who's not.
Why do we always have to be last in announcing our teams.

In regards to Tuesday team announcements, the NRL mandates, and also incentivises, clubs to have a certain amount of digital content - both video and photo - on their websites. The way the Tigers do it, they integrate player sponsors in the announcement video, the same way the team is read out on game day. For sponsors, this is extra exposure for which the club gains extra revenue from.

Basically, the Tigers digital team spend Tuesday afternoon putting together the announcement video to not only ensure the club meets their requirements from the NRL, but to please sponsors as well. If you want to point a finger, point it to the video editors, not at the coach.

To be fair only Newcastle, Cronulla, New Zealand and Canberra have named their squads. I'm happy with Potter waiting til after the first hit out to name his squad.

Fair enough Alex.. thanks for that. I guess we can wait if it means extra money for the club.
Blocker on 2GB already thinks the nines team has been made official saying Moses Austin and Woods are part of the team.

I never understand the grief over slow team announcements? It makes no difference come game-day.

Yep. I think it says more about the people complaining.

So people care about this tournament enough to rage over a squad not being announced yet?

Clubs should be taking it seriously. The prize money on offer is huge.

Austin said on twitter he is playing. Potter had previously been quoted saying koro and T would be great inclusions and that farah wanted to play. I'm guessing that's 4 of our squad, the rest we'll find out soon.

The tournament has gone from exciting concept to utter joke.

Storm resting all their big 3. Fitler and now Menzies supposedly playing.

i think farah might have been rested in the trial to make sure he is 100% for 9s. He's been promoting it for ages and i reckon he'll play around 10-15 minutes on day 1. Maybe more if we progress further.
