Sironen will come off the bench in his return from injury as the only change to last week’s team.

    Jack Wheelhouse and Junior Tatola will again co-captain the side this weekend as Wests Tigers look to build on their last-start win when they kick off at 4:45pm AEDT.

    Good to see Bayley back…It’s a strong squad…



  • Very strong looking forward pack. I like the way Marsters is developing also, could be a backrow smokey for next year in FG. Manly got pummelled by the Dogs last week so fingers crossed our boys aim up and run holes through them.



  • The two props, Tatola & Felise, are the ones who lead the way. I really like the way they go about their work in the middle. Mapesone does a great job of getting the team around the park too. What do people think of Ryland Jacobs? I think he could push on after this year but will keep an eye on his progression anyway.

    The weakness of both Mapesone and Jacobs (especially Jacobs) is they can’t/won’t pass the ball to their team mates. They both have a strong running game so back themselves more often than not.

    Last week, our leading try scorer from 2015 didn’t get passed the ball once all game. This was due to Jacobs, and an inexperienced half who couldn’t throw a cutout ball to him (but Bartley was on NYC debut to be fair). He probably could have scored a try or two had Jacobs gone the team first option rather than the individual option.

    But i certainly agree on the props. Clear to see they’re the leaders of this team and a cut above this level.



  • Manly up 18-12 at halftime after our boys led 12-0.

    Wests Tigers Holden Cup side have continued their winning start to 2016 with a strong victory over the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles today at Leichhardt Oval.

    Wests Tigers got off to a great start to open the scoring in the 15th minute when Luke Sharpe pounced on a neatly placed grubber from under the posts.

    Veiru Mapesone converted to give the home side a 6-0 lead.

    The home side were in again just five minutes later when Junior Tatola ran onto an inside ball from Jack Wheelhouse to crash over under the posts for a 12-0 lead.

    Manly turned the momentum around and dominated the final 15 minutes of the first half with three tries. Billy Bainbridge was put into a hole close to the line from half Nicholas Hynes, and soon after Brad Parker found space to cross in the corner.

    Hutana Coffin converted both tries and the game was back level at 12-12.

    With halftime looming, Manly were the beneficiaries of a nicely placed kick chase that saw the ball batted back into play with Hynes the player in the right place at the right time to get the ball down. Coffin kicked the conversion from the sideline for Manly to take a 18-12 lead into the break.

    Wests Tigers responded early in the second half when winger Obed Karwhin showed brut strength to fend off his opposite number O’Toole to score in the corner.

    Mapesone nailed the conversion from the sideline and the game was back level at 18-18.

    Karwhin was in for a double ten minutes later when he received early ball to show some speed and cross in the corner. Mapesone nailed the conversion again from the sideline for Wests Tigers to take a 24-18 lead.

    An error from the restart handed Manly possession and the visitors took advantage with Lucas Price crossing on the right edge.

    Coffin converted and for the third time in the match, the score was level at 24-24.

    In a common trend to the match, Wests Tigers returned serve in the 67th minute when late inclusion Toa Mata’afa crossed over out wide. Mapesone missed his first conversion for the day, but the home side had a lead at 28-24.

    A strong set after points resulted in a Manly error with ten minutes remaining and second-rower Bayley Sironen crashed over next to the posts to hand Wests Tigers their biggest lead since of the game, before a late consolation try to Price reduced the final score to 34-30.

    Wests Tigers will look to continue their strong start to season 2016 next week when they take on the Gold Coast Titans at Cbus Super Stadium on Saturday afternoon.


    FINAL — Wests Tigers 34 (Karwhin 2, Sharpe, Sironen, Mata’afa, Tatola tries; Mapesone 5/6 goals) def. Sea Eagles 30 (Price 2, Hynes, Bainbridge, Parkers tries; Coffin 5/5 goals).



  • Was a good effort by the boys. Only watched the second half but we were totally dominant for the majority. You can see the intensity lift when Tatola and Felise come back on after their break at halftime. We tend to score when they’re on and concede when they’re not.

    Karwhin got passed the ball twice today which was nice. He scored 2 tries. Get him the ball more in attack, as so much goes down the right.

    Good to see Sirro back too, he’ll be better off for the run. Stone looked solid too.

    I still think we need to see more from our halves, not enough ball playing there. Hopefully young Bartley finds his feet soon

    The only player for Manly who looked remotely dangerous was their 6.



  • I take it Kharwin’s “brut strength” was the smell of his deodorant rather than the brute strength of his muscles?

    Those teenage boys and their deodorant…! )

    Brings back memories of filling up the school bus with Lynx and Dufour after school sport on tuesdays.
