We are the 8th club in history to win 5 of the first 6 games and miss the finals. This season has been a plane crash
Is that from 1908 harvey? Dropping from that start to 6th is one thing, dropping from that start to 9th (at best) is terrible.
We must have done something to win those 5 games and I don't think it was taking steroids. I think that it was stretching talent and enthusiasm to the limit in those first games. It is not something that a team can sustain for the full season if it hasn't the talent. Like many are saying, "two class second rowers and two class centres" will do the trick. Let's hope Wests Tigers open up the purse strings and purchase these player to play season 2019. Waiting until season following 2019 is just too late as we would more than likely miss the bus competing for players..

It was looking like being a success, but right now it's not looking too flash.

I think it was we were ready to go, while other sides were looking at a long season.

As the season progressed other sides improved, while we went backwards

With teams like Parra and the Dogs looking better over the last couple weeks, we’re a realistic chance of a bottom 4 finish if we don’t stop the rot.

You ask these questions at the end of the season
Are you still holding out hope for the top 8?
Its an opinion!

Quick flick through the Juro curve will show it’s buisness as usual

We are a mile behind Souths, so this year is a fail.

I’m losing a carton - that’s my win/fail estimator.

If we came second last and souths were wooden spooners then, to me, that’s a win.

Ok so I’m different.

Yes
tigers have possibly worst roster in the comp as evidenced by two of the top 5 paid being props and a injury prone 5/8 (who has arguable benefits anyway)
Forget the start.., Tigers were just fitter than other teams that preferred to build during the season.,,
Tigers have a wooden spoon roster and Cleary has done a great job ensuring they are off the bottom

That being said ... Bulldogs maybe have a worst roster and are playing better

I’ll make my judgement at the end of the season, we still have 8 games to play.

I was slammed by a few for having the opinion we would finish the season strongly with some saying we wouldn’t win another game. Stay positive Tigers are building Farah and Mbye will make a huge difference for the rest of the season.

Lawrence hamstring is huge he is our best forward this year by a long way.
