Does anyone know what rounds Robbie played this year?
About 1/2. Playing reserve grade was below a legend of his status.
He has played 2 1st grade games and 6 reserve grade games

Prince couldn’t do any worse than he did on commentary.

Games against the sharks and the titans.
Full 80 min games,

I can’t find the offical list. He seems to be in limbo at the moment, out of Souths list and not yet in the Tigers.

geez some people miss the point, I for one keep saying he is a very good player... it is the way he treated the club, the way... ammm uummm never mind blah blah blah.

Good luck coach!!!
Treated the Club? He was bullied into Reserve Grade to force him out cause the Club didn't want to honour his Contract.
There's 15 other Clubs if you are that down about it hop along.
hop along where? geez, getting personal now are we? I am not down. Who told you I was? oh my, some people really? I was just expressing the concern I have for the club. The club has made the decision and I am ok with that... they know better than I do. So we will leave it at that. Good luck coach!!!

PS. they were honouring his contract - only that he was playing in Reserve Grade - there was no promise that he will play in FG all the time or did I miss something? was there a promise in the contract that he will be in FG all the time?

oh boy, some people... welcome RF and good luck coach!!!
Um he played Origin that year when they put him in Reserve Grade says more about the Coach he had at the time and where is he now? Back pedalled to the place where they would feel sorry for him and give him employment :lol:

He's here for half year you'll be right
Exactly FT, it was all about JT and his ego, he had the current origin hooker in reserve grade and Rankin at hooker in 1st grade, the board should have sacked the fool right then for such a stupid team selection, club first my backside JT, so glad you are no longer our problem.
Go hard or go home

Well this has saved our last remaining hope to make the 8 this. I have given this some thought and most on here would remember me saying weeks ago we should make 8 this year and I've given some thought into why it has unraveled.
Well imo the rot set in when we lost Benji and Reynolds was unable to step up and play 80 due to match fitness and when ET was shifted into 9 more or less permanently. The final manifestation was ET falling off tackles in the SH last week. I felt watching that ET had a look like he was fed up with footy.

Now I reckon this will fix it. Make no mistake these older rep players when they are focused and are playing almost a cameo can replicate the highest standards of form. We now have a good defensive No 9 who can play 80 and tot9solve our dummy half woes ET should get his mojo back and personally I feel Benji should get the 6 in front of Reynolds to help Brooks game with Reynolds off the bench.

Got my footy mojo back too with new hope.

Yeah the fact we did not get sufficient cover since he left and the players that were to lead the club left shows poor football operations.

The past can’t be changed but at the end of the day we all west’s tiger supporters and want our team to do well. Liddle is our future (hopefully) but he isn’t ready now and Farah will give us the experience we need. I think let’s judge him on what he does now rather than what happened previously. Hopefully he does well and more importantly we win games, as he is just another player wearing a tigers jersey nothing more nothing less.

It’s what we need and it has happened.
I think we will have a better team for it.
Welcome back champion!

He is under contract for next year. He needs a better manager who will leak stories to the media about being dumped to reserve grade and overlooked in favour of nufties like Godinet and how no-one is looking after his welfare etc. etc.
