Basically beneath the lines, the Tigers board have said if we make the 8 Potter will be resigned and if we don’t, he will be sacked at seasons end. With 6 games to go and given our horrendous for and against, we will need to win 4 out of the 6 to make the 8. Against Storm, Cowboys, Roosters, Bulldogs, Raiders and Sharks, this will be very difficult. However I feel if we actually do make the 8, not only will the boys be saving Potter’s job but I believe we can give it a real shake. Anything less then 4 wins from our next 6 games won’t be good enough. Its now firmly in the hands of the Wests Tigers players (and in recent times the men in pink, but that’s another story) as to whether or not they want it bad enough. I do think we need to make some tough calls. Possibly dumping Lulia and bringing in Hoeter/Taukafa to debut and possibly shifting Austin and Moses around too.
His hands are tied by a injury toll that is climbing by the week,the second tier cap and a club that is in turmoil. If Potter needs a top 8 finish to get a new contract, well he should start applying for jobs. They will really do well to win another game with the troops they have fit.
Potter should be judged on what he achieved with a fully fit squad and a happy club!!!
Personally SC I think he should be judged on the whole year, and to be in contention with the injury toll we have …. Well I’m astounded we are at a place that Mick is struggling.
He SHOULD have earns himself an extension.
But we all know minds were made up from day 1 in whichever quarters are gunning for him. What they think they know that we don’t who the hell knows
