Re: 3, 2, 1

OK I'm now convinced that nobody watches the game, or notices anything other than the obvious. I'm stunned nobody noticed Chee. He was pretty good with the ball but had some poor misses in defence (though being inside Benji doesn’t help). I don’t think he was a net negative, but I didn’t have him i...

Re: Sue to dogs

Great cover tackle at the end on Rapana too. As said above his goal line defence is a worry, but we've got a couple of other props that stake their claim on defence, I'd happily give Sue another contract and trust Ivan to keep him performing when he doesn't need a new deal.

Re: WESTS Tigers Team V Canberra....

ET definitely looks the odd man out in the future, but that team is a few years away at best (if ever). A lot of his tackles come as third man in taking out the legs and getting the guy to the floor. He and Packer are the only reason we ever stand a chance through the middle of the field because bar...

Re: Lolohea

I hope not! I like Tui, besides what do we get out of swapping him for Moses? Still paying close to 700k for Moses. Doesn't make sense Where does this come from? Moses asked for a release, and was granted one, the only money on our salary cap was what we had already paid him last year. I may be wro...

Re: Naiqama > St Helens Rumour

See this is what I don’t get when people pick at our team. We’ve got a fair chunk of our squad in the 1, 6 and 9, the quality just isn’t there. 1. Lolohea, Thompson, throw in Naiqama 6. Reynolds, Marshall, Gamble 9. Liddle, McIlwrick, Godinet Benji has regressed to the mean, Tui never really got go...

Re: Naiqama > St Helens Rumour

Reading through a thread like this it becomes apparent that most people have given up on our club ever signing a high profile player. I refuse to have that mentality, we are every chance with every good player off contract. This is Ivan Cleary not the last bloke. Is this the same Ivan Cleary that h...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I can see Danny Levi having a similar career trajectory as Cam McInness if he finds the right team, but I don’t think that’s us, especially if he’s upset about being outperformed by a new recruit.

Re: What's the go

Wasn’t ideal, but we have to keep in mind that Feldt is one of the best in the business at it. One mongrel bounce could have easily been two, but for the most part they were reasonably covered.

Re: Is there any ex WT's players you would take back

I went with Paseka. Hard to vote for some of the bigger names that left on bad terms, and everyone knew the kid was going to be something. Left for an opportunity more than anything, but I’d love to see how Ivan could develop him with Packer, Matulino, Benji and ET around. Definitely fills a hole in...

Re: Missed E T

Talking Elijah. So am I , Elijah came off after HT v Knights last week Think he means Pearce wouldn’t have scored if Rowdy was there last week Hap. But I agree with the sentiment, really missed his control of the ruck, Parra just went straight at the A defenders and got a roll on all game. One thin...

Re: Nofoaluma

I get what you mean, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Ivan did sit him down and tell him about it. He said it was a shock that he wasn’t picked round 1, but all the noise made throughout pre-season was effort and performance would be rewarded. If he wasn’t seen as one of the top two performing wingers...

That article pretty much puts the thread to bed, right?

We’ve definitely missed some of his carries, so here’s to a long and successful first grade...

Re: Congrats Rowdy..

I’m an unabashed lover of the bloke, and he was one of our best tonight. He’s been denting the line all year and was all over Croft, though fell off a few soft tackles. Seems to have re-discovered a bit of late footwork (or confidence in it, at least) and that’s made him all the more dangerous. Look...

Re: Jeremy Marshall King named at 5/8

I was hoping we’d see him in the 9 to start the season for us, but can’t begrudge a bloke betting on himself to prove his worth. All the best to one of the few bright lights from last year’s ISP team!

Transport to Campbelltown?

Hey forumers,
In Sydney for a holiday and hoping to catch the trial game, can anyone help me out with how’s best to get there?
Staying in Darlinghurst, not opposed to Uber but just wanted to check if public transport was easier.

Thanks!

Re: Mason Cerruto & Brenden Santi

I seem to remember Cerruto having big raps on him, but from memory it was always of the Mullaney/Gallant sort. Is that a fair description of his talent? Not a big surprise to see Santi still kicking around either, clubs will always have a spot for a player like him, especially with reduced interchan...
