Re: Ryan Matterson

The word I have once removed from a former great at the Roosters is that Matterson, Napa and maybe JWH are being moved on to make way for Crichton who is already coming and there is a very big play to get TPJ away from the Broncs. The back up position for them is apparently Tapau So sounds like Mar...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

No offense, but great to great to Marty back however he needs to do more. I would say he is a very under whelming player considering what he can do. I will get shot down however he could outstanding if he set his mind to it. Under Ivan i think could however we could be paying overs. I am sitting on ...

Re: Marshall and Farah

Benji probably needs to call it. Despite how I felt about Farah when he left and came back I'm not too proud to give credit where it is due, he's been good since returning and he would be handy next year if not on stupid money. Agree 100%....Benji to retire and I am happy for Farah to continue on f...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Drinkwater should stay in Super League which suits his skill set down to the ground and he can crave out a nice solid career there. If he came back here, he would just be a back up half back. The club has signed some young talented half-backs by the sound it in young Talau from Bulldogs and young ha...

Re: 3,2,1

3- Matulino (he was awesome tonight. Big minutes and his defence was awesome) 2-Chee-Kam ( wasn’t sure if he could step up in the absence of Laurence but he was tough both in defence and attack) 1- Brooks - great control of the game not really over playing his hand. Great defence also. Masters and S...

Re: WESTS Tigers Team V St George Illawarra..

As controversial as it is, it’s good to see Ivan thinking about the shape of our pack. We can’t have both Twal and Eisenhuth on our bench. We need a ginuine backrower as well which Aloiai and Chee Kam are not. Aloiai might start but soon after he will go into the middle rotation alongside Sue, Chee...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Nathan Cleary would not come to this club unless we have the cattle in the pack to provide the go-forward he requires. If Ivan can bring his son here, then in his right mind he will also have the right players to support him to achieve success. Ivan has a plan and i look forward to seeing this come ...

Lets hope we can use this spot to get a center over the line which we desperately need.
Can Oliver Clark play centre...?
Geo - if we are giving this kid a spot in our top 30, then we are in trouble :) I was just hoping another nice present might pop up before June 30th.

Re: What are your thoughts on signing Robbie Farah back?

I have no problems if this comes to fruition however I still believe we need another decent hooker for 2019 and beyond. Still be convinced that Liddle can handle the rigors of week in, week out NRL.
Farah or Liccha, it would be Farah every day.

Re: Hooker position - Thread

I thought this position might come back and bite us. Throwing all your eggs into Liddle was not the answer until his body is NRL ready and can handle the weekly rigors or NRL. Therefore the below would be ideal: * Matt Parcels (Leeds) has had 2 great seasons with Leeds and playing week in footy with...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Here is my opinion - I like the Granville rumor. Good quality hooker to guide Liddle and provide competition. We lack quality in that department although I would try and get these 2 blokes if we could not get Granville - Adam Milner (Castleford - can play lock and hooker and is off contract) and Mat...

Re: Player and team stats from tonight

Rochow needs to start punching out some more metres and getting into good 1-1 position against smaller halfbacks etc....49m is not great. I actually dont mind him but our edge metres always seems to be a concern considering how many minutes they play.
Otherwise good spread of work across the team.
