Re: Huth

Would love to see this bloke learn to bend the line in attack. Once he does that he will be not only a better player but contibute more to the team. Are any of you stats Guru's into post contact metres for players for current season. I would be keen to see how Huth adds up compared to others. Whatev...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

All the chat about Moses and French. Leave them both where they are. In addition listened to Kelly Egan's chat on radio last night and he all but killed any interest in Barba if he were to return to Australia. Thank God for that. For what it's worth, give the mentioned three in this reply a big miss...

Re: Chee-Kam Fan

I think he is going well and fully deserves his run on spot. big improver this year and happy to see him pressing the other back rowers for positions.

Re: Sugarcoated win

Tigerdon makes a very good point that our defence against the cowboys was good. Here in Qld, article in Courier Mail on Friday (about page 20 because first 19 pages is full of Bronco's based crap)indicates that Cowboys lost game and Tigers did not win it. The first mistake in the match was a common ...

Andrew Johns or Wally Lewis. Cam Smith only gets a look in due to the refs in the current game that pamper to him.

Re: Coach or Cattle

Its about finding that balance and mixing a good coach with the appropriate players. Clearly Cleary (??) is a good coach and players like Thompson and Marshall prove that a good coach mixed with the right players can combine to form a winning combination. I personally think that this weekend is a wa...

Re: Tedesco in doubt for knights clash

Teddy Who ??. He is a brilliant player but heart not in it anymore for the tigers. As much as it goes against my grain, move Tui to Fullback and let Littlejohn or another into the pivot role for the rest of the season if Tedessco wants to sook it, otherwise play him thru to round 26. The thing these...

Re: Uncoached

It's quite simply the cattle that we have. Cleary has said from the beginning that he wasn't planning on making his mark on the team during this year, instead he would tweak a few of Taylor's tactics i.e Rushing Defence, positional changes etc. The cattle that Jason Taylor assembled were to suit hi...

Re: Lolohea: "I'm becoming a better player"

Sorry but I disagree with some of the comments. Lolohea is playing with a team that consists mostly of players who are going or unsigned and know that their time at the tigers is coming to an end. He is still settling into his temporary role this year with the view to his becoming familiar with the ...

Calm down, its yet again disappointing but this year is a write off. Only good for blooding our youngsters and we had a fair few of them in there today - Suli, Felise, Eisentuth, Marsters. The more game time they get, the better placed we will be for 2018.

Re: Realistic team list round 1 2018

Eisenhuth has probably forced his way into most people's teams after tonight. Add Marsters to that too. 1. Lolohea 2. Nofoaluma 3. Milne 4. Suli 5. Fonua 6. Reynolds 7. Brooks 8. Matulino 9. McIlwrick 10. Packer 11. McQueen 12. Lawrence 13. Taylor 14. Liddle 15. Eisenhuth 16. Marsters 17. Aloiai Go...

Re: Lolohea

I thought he was good and has settled in well to the club. He will be a good purchase and keen to see 2018 come around with Tui and others on the bus. It's just the pain between now and then that I don't enjoy.

Re: Mahe Founa and Corey Thompson (official)

Good Signings. both are at worst strong depth players. I wonder what Kevie is thinking. He might be starting to get a little nervous about being unsigned for 2018. Monau in particular is a player that might turn into a very good signing. Don't recall much about Thompson but some are saying he is so...

Re: Bennett drops Ben Hunt to Reserve grade

Typical Bennett. Full of arogrance and he knows it all. Just ask him. I don't agree with the instability this mid year movement thing is doing the game but Hunt (and being a Bronco I am not a fan of him at all) does not deserve this. The Dragons would not be happy.

Re: Who's our Captain for 2018 ?

Reynolds. An outsider who will embrace the leadership role. We (Ivan and the bus) are changing the culture of this club from a player perspective. Some might think this is weird having Reynolds as Captain but if you sit down, have a beer and give it some thought, you will find it makes sense.

Moses is in a world of hurt and you know what- I really don't care. He is old news and am keen to watch Tui develolp as an option for us in the halves this year and at Fullback in 2018. As Ivan indicates, Tui is now on the bus, we just need to give him time to find his seat. I think with some work h...
