Re: Players who never reached their potential

Dean Collis - burst on to the scene but never kicked on.
Chris Lawrence - Injuries have cruelled him but could have been an origin lock for 10+ years
Bronson Harrison - amazing talent although he never reached his full potential
Matt Groat - Huge Wraps on him but could never reach the level

Re: Liddle to Bulldogs? - SMH article

I agree with Liddle (and Farah) jumping out of box 1 but what about if Luke from box 7 is screaming for the ball? Liddel should continue running as the stats prove that Luke scores more if he gets the ball a bit less which sounds sensible as the defence are not so confident where the attack is comi...

Re: Luke Brooks

I am kind of using the re-signing of Luke as a bit of a gauge to the health of the club. 12 months earlier we basically lost Teddy and Woodsy who, let’s face it, couldn’t wait to get out of the club.

If Brooksy stays then I think we may have turned the corner.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Nothing new to add, I think he is the worst fullback in the NRL or close to it. As a centre I'd take him. If we buy him to play centre, does anyone know which side he plays? If it is the left side then I say take him. He runs good lines and the threat he and Rowdy will pose will be great. We will h...

Don't mind this. I'm happy with Brooks.
Are we guaranteed to get him? Cupboard starts to look at bit bare if Brooksy moves on.

Re: New coach.. Who should we target?

Wow - when you look at the field, it is really pretty slim pickings.

I think our best outcome would be to extend Cleary for a year or two and see who is available after that. It would set us back years if we were forced to take a second or third tier coach.

Re: Nathan Cleary

I’m so over this s***. We have an awesome halfback - re-sign him to a long deal. Fix the roster and get some decent bloody players. Extend Ivan or piss him off. One or the other. Oh and Justin, don’t go on holidays until this is all done! I dont get this mindset...I know all the talk and theories a...

Re: Nathan Cleary

I can’t see it yet in Cleary. He looks to have adequate passing, kicking game with good defence but in the big games (Origin and semi-finals) I haven’t got any sense he is worth 1M+. I said it before, I have seen many next big things that kind of plateau and just can’t go that extra gear. I do get a...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I’m happy to be told I’m wrong but I’m a little disappointed in Esan. He relies too much on delicate footwork to break the line. I never see him hit the line at speed or try to beat his man on the outside. Now he’s done some good things this year, but is not the attacking force I thought he’d be. J...

Re: Luke Brooks

I think that if we had a couple of Burgess boys who provided a decent roll on and space for the DH and the halves to play, this would be a moot conversation. Brooks played as well as he was allowed to and Robbie was good when he came on board.

Re: Farah and Marshall to play on in 2019

The signing of Marshall as back up 6 puts to bed any hopes that N Cleary will be released to play for tigers in 2019 Steve, I never thought for one minute that N Cleary would be released next year to anyone. As for Farah and Marshall re-signing for one more year, it does not fill me with excitement...
