Re: Thanks Tigers!

This was coming I have to admit I backed the Rabbits by 20+ at 4.00. This was always going to happen. Season was better than I thought and we are setup we’ll cap wise for the future. It’s a start let’s see who we sign as the roster is not good enough. Key holes Prop, Edge Backrower, Centre and a br...

Re: What a mismatch

I thought they had a go. Some loose handling and a million fifth tackle penalties and the wash up being we had less than 30% possession for the last 60 minutes of the game!! And this against a monster pack - our worst opposition scenario.

But as to the future........sigh.

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

My first post in this 130 page monster.
I wont pretend to know what has gone on in this saga. However I found IC's statement pretty disappointing. As another poster noted, seemed to leave more unsaid than what actually was. I wonder if Ivan and Justin will be as tight going forward.

Re: Round 6 spoilers

Most of the Sin bins this year seem to have been for players trying to stop the quick tap. And they are mostly all 'dives'. But even when they are not, what genius decided that the penalty for sticking an arm out or whatever from a quick tap (10 in the bin) should be so much more draconian than any...

Kev was woeful. But I have seen him bounce back really well after a shocker, so I will be surprised if he is not there next week.

Re: Noffa and McQueen to start in ISP

Trouble is, anyone who watched him last season knows he needs to defend better. Presumably that would have been the focus for him for the off-season. Can only assume that not much improvement has been noted, and that raises the question as to whether improvement will ever come??

Re: AN EMOTIONAL Benji Marshall has opened up on his rollercoaster rugby league career & the return “home” to Wests Tig

I was pretty happy when he left us; last year or two with the Tigers his form seemed way down. However, I thought he went really well for the Broncos in their semi loss to the Rorters and in one or two games I saw him play earlier this year. If he can bring that form to the Tigers there is no questi...

Directed the team well tonight. Ran often enough. Two try assists and a line break. I'd settle for that every week.
This is endemic as a tigers fan. We settle.
Wow what a ridiculous comment. why wouldnt we settle for those stats leading to a convincing win??

Re: James Tedesco...Contract Thread..

How many months did they need? The club couldn't wait any longer as the window of getting replacements for them was closing everyday. By the sound of it they had better than fair deals tabled to them by us and they know who the coach is now. If you love the club and your teammates you put pen to pa...

Nah don't boo him. just say nothing, don't cheer. Silence can be deafening Absolutely correct. Ive always wondered why when the opposition run out, why do we boo.

Did any of you guys join the "Dancers Club"? I recall that was supposed to be some sort of JV which would inject funds into the Magpies. I remember queing up to join and pay my $10 but that was it; never went to the club again and it obviously didnt help the Maggies financially. As far as Im concern...

Re: Ivan Cleary's Message

Some good lines from Cleary, and I think he will ultimately be successful here. But its going to be a long haul and the next season or two are not likely to be very successful. We are looking at 2 years minimum to turn this ship around.

Re: Split the Big 4?

Do you guys think Parra and Canberra have been attractive options for players in recent years? Canberra is a hole and were a struggling team, and Parra have been a bigger basket case than us. Both teams have been able to attract very good players. No reason why we cant do the same. Canberra didn't ...

Re: New chairperson?

The fact that our CEO used the phrase "the big 4" is alarming as well IMO. Deluded club from the top down it seems. Was thinking the same thing. No room for JT on that pedestal it would appear. I cringed when he said that. The original big 4 were Smith, Cronk, Inglis and Slater. Thats an accolade e...
