Aye there's hardly a player that I single out for compliments more during a game. He's like Ben Galea was, always at the bottom of that great cover tackle or scything hit.

May be wrong here but it could be a matter of horses for courses. The Dragons team looked decidedly light on from memory, so it may be a strategic move to start Fulton and Thompson, get in to the grind against a mediocre pack, then blow the game open with sheer size off the bench.
Also have to say, this is the first time in a very long time, if ever, that I've looked at a Tigers bench and smiled. 4 forwards, and four BIG ones at that. The times they are a'changing.

With Fulton starting I would have thought a larger back rower should partner him. Thompson can still come on and rip in during the match. Otherwise the squad looks nice and big.

Too early to tell, but from all reports, the new rules will see the game become much quicker this season. Appears mobility and speed will be key this season.

Would just be Wests' luck......finally get some size and the laws go back to 2005.

[quote="TigerBrent94"]One of the best interchange benches i've seen for a Tigers team in a long while. 4 forwards! Good stuff.


4 Good ones too.Longtime since weve seen that.Hopefully we see BMM and Galloway soon too.

I have been thinking the same thing and hoping that is not the case.

Maybe Ricky Stuart and Steve Price are onto something.

I suspect we will see Patterson starting and Bodene on the bench

I didn't realise a boil was contagious. Im still recovering from looking it up in google then clicking on images.


They should be fine by Sunday.

Size. Intimidate them early and then bring on the more nimble Bodene.

Makes more sense in terms of balance of the team.
