I can see us really finishing in the top 4 next year.
A lot of you might think this is rubbish but with the addition of Taumata and the emergence of Lui we have some exciting prospects.
We need to bolster the pack though-this can be done within the club, but i think it is paramount it is also done outside the club ie recruitment.
Payne (Rumour in RLW)
Galea (See above)
Trimmarchi (See above)
Taumata (Rehab centre)
I have excluded the players that have been re-signed…
Although many of you have been calling for the Wests Tigers to sign Galea i think that with the return of Fulton, there is no need for Galea unfortunately. Payne has played well in patches, but his lack of physicality and grunt sees him being released as well.
IMO the emergence of Lui, Gower and Dwyer were good for the Tigers.
Ayshford and Moltzen have adapted ridiculously well to first grade and will be features of the '010 team.
It might sound very cliche but i really believe next year will be OUR year.
Too many times has Sheens had Morris at his disposal and with Morris gone i think our attack will be even better, without him stalling it.
I am very worried about the signings though… Surely we have quality outside backs playing for BRET or WS that good do a better job. It must be noted that the guys we purchased are merely first graders themselves and guys like Brown and Daniella may do a ‘Nick Youngquest.’
My team next year is as follows:
