Re: Rochow finds home at Tigers

Good? He has amassed a lot of missed tackles. He has an effective tackle completion rate of 77.9% which is way below the other forwards, the majority of which are >90% (lowest is 87%). Hit ups are ineffective. He has 1 off-load in 3 games. Post contact meters are atrocious. Meanwhile Aloiai is on th...

Re: The club deserves the Spoon

At least we are a chance of winning something.

I'd even take winning the toss at this moment in time.

Roosters, Bulldogs, Dragons....

...all candidates for Tedesco and Woods. The boys are looking for a stable club with the chance of playing finals? Mmmm. Let me think?

Re: Does size matter?

It's not a matter of who's better or worse in size comparatively. For instance is Inglis, Kasiano, Oates, Bromwich better than the shorter Mansour, Tamolo, Jennings, Scott? They're all good players regardless of stature. Its about having a point of difference to enable variation in both attack and d...

Does size matter?

Hope not. Out of all the teams we only have 3 players in our top 25 that are 190cm and above. The least of all the clubs. The majority of clubs have at least 7/25 players. Notable teams are Souths 12/25, Melbourne 11/25, Dogs 10/25 and Cowboys 11/25. Hope Taylor knows what he's doing with recruitmen...

Re: Jason Taylor: "Disappointed..."

ITs Taylor that picks the team and the bench and the rotation of such. Hand on heart and say that Taylor picked the best 17 team available or was he playing favourites. Unfortunately, its hard to argue. He got the playing personnel wrong and we missed the 8 again. Playing Ranking at fullback was not...

Re: If the NRL is a business...

Ballin wont be good to go til mid-way through 2017 at best. Mental demons my friend particularly after a 2nd reconstruction and that's assuming there are no complications. There will be no Halatau either. That's Liddle and on-one at the start of the year. Sorry, there's Rankin. I forgot. 2017 will b...

Swordy, Using your analogy, Its more akin to the manager being envious of the garbage collector, who is on more coin than him. The manager gets rid of the expensive guy, buys another garbage collector, at the same price cause he still paying for the guy he just let go, and the new garbage collector ...

Re: If the NRL is a business...

What irks me is what Taylor said: "The team performs better without Robbie in it..." The last time Robbie played was against the Panthers and we towled them up. Robbie was one of our better players on the field that night. If we believe what's been written in the media, our young guns were holding o...

If the NRL is a business...

...then from that perspective, it will cost the WT Club $950k to get ride of Farah or I assume, $500K to get ride of Taylor. The pros and cons are: - Taylor said we are looking for a No.9 and yet we have a SOO player on our books signed for 2017 that we don't have to spent a cent on. - Who better to...

Disappointed.... - We have $1.5million dollars of talent wasted in reserves (Sironen, Cherrington, Farah) - The players Taylor selects on the bench offer no impact (Edwards, Lovett) - Our tactics seem to be to score points at the start and at the end of the game when the best team is on and hang on ...

Re: Robbie Farah and rest of the year prediction

"Being the best individual doesn't mean you are the best for the team."

Keep repeating that after we miss the 8 again.

Don't forget, we are the only team to have lost to the Knights.

Re: A pretty good loss

The better team won. We did well to get back into the game considering the loss of Teddy. There is too much pressure on Moses to produce. The defence stacks his side and miracle plays are needed to get through and it cost us twice with 2 intercepts from the pressure in defence. We need a plan B in t...

Re: Tigers Players Praise Taylor Over Farah Feud

Chewbacca is the nickname given to Tallis. Shame that there are people on this forum giving it to Robbie for no apparent reason other than what they have read/heard in the media. Pathetic given that everytime he has worn the jersey for 247 games, he has given 100%. The experts that think Farah shoul...

Re: Tigers Players Praise Taylor Over Farah Feud

The media has been running a campaign over a feud between the ex-captain and coach for far too long. A bit like the Marshall and Farah feud years ago that was obviously bollocks. A friend of mine is a media manager for another club and let it be known, that at every media function/event, Chewbacca e...

Re: Your side to take on the Titans

...Im just saying if Tedesco or Moses cop a head knock similar to Et's on the weekend, we will be left in a mess. Littlejohn, God love him, is not in the same class as Moses, Tedesco or Brooks for creativity. We need to move on from the Rankin experiment at dummy half. You pick the best 17 players a...

Re: Tedesco v Hayne

...it happened just before he signed the contract. He had to ask for special permission from the NRL. There was no way Hayne was going to compete with the athletes in the US without being on a level playing field. Hence why he is bigger, stronger and faster than ever. He left as equal with JT as the...
