It's good to see positive vibes on the forum. All the Rugby league Facebook posts have brought out all the negative nancies predicting us to get rolled and grab the wooden spoon this year. It is a possibility, but I think every other NRL fan doubts the Tigers too much. ;)

Agree with the OP... This is a good time of the season to play the best teams.

Errors will be the deciding factor, and if we can be on the right side of that coin we are every chance to see a Tiger victory.

Fire Up Tigers!!!
you keep saying this so for the peanut gallery ..is it really true...The Roosters may struggle with combinations early in the year...mkay

Here is the Wests Tigers Team that last played a game of genuine footy rd 26

WESTS TIGERS

1. James Tedesco
2. David Nofoaluma
3. Esan Marsters
4. Kevin Naiqama
5. Malakai Watene-Zelezniak
6. Tuimoala Lolohea
7. Luke Brooks
8. Aaron Woods (capt.)
17. Jack Littlejohn
10. Tim Grant
11. Joel Edwards
12. Josh Aloiai
13. Matt Eisenhuth

Interchange:
14. Alex Twal
15. Sauaso Sue
16. Bayley Sironen
19. Jeremy Marshall-King

So only 7 players out of 17 take the field for Rd 1 2018..

From the Rorters side that played the GF qualifier the only changes are....Gordon Pearce Watson Guerra OUT Tedesco Cronk Manu Radley IN..oh and if Keary doesn't play add Cornish...

I think I may know who's combinations may need more than 1 and a half trial games to settle...

In saying all that I do :pray: :pray: we pummel them like we did to Souff's round 1 last year just to shut the young fella up..
blah blah blah... Did you miss the bus?

Hey guys (and girls)! First post here.
I’m a regular on the Wests Tigers Facebook pages and used to post a fair bit on the NRLTalk forums years ago.

This is a winnable game - absolutely. Best time to face a favourite is very early in the season, before any side has truly clicked into gear.

I think the key for us is to move the big Roosters pack around. Long kicking game and kick chase have to be on song from the opening minute to the 80th. As always, no silly penalties and errors.

If we try and ‘out-muscle’ he Roosters, we will lose. Similarly, if we try and run around them all game, we will lose. Match their forwards, keep the scoreboard tight - make the Roosters nervous.

I posted previously, WT have quite strong early-season form esp at home games (not surprisingly). It's after about 6 rounds each season that we tend to fall away badly.
Did you back us?
I had a crack on Thurs I think it was, we'd blown from $3.50 to $4.00...that was the icing on the cake after Teddys cock ups and the 2 points.
Dont think I'll go again next week tho

Won't rule out another bet on us next week especially with start.
Only have to listen to Robinson and Napa to realise they thought their intensity and defensive games were good this is a wrap for us. Wasn't super impressed with storm against dogs.
If our forwards play this way we are a real deal.

Yeah $10 @ $3.70. Didn't have the guts to put more on but still a decent pickup.
