What we really need..



  • a winning culture.

    This might be the stupidest thread you’ve ever seen but I reckon we need to form a winning culture. You can either do that by importing ruthless characters who would go out and give it all on the field or you can form that culture yourself. Everyone agrees that we lack experience but I don’t want to form a spine which has a <50% success rate.

    Doing the hard yards now, doing the right things at training etc is all very important but none of it means anything if we don’t bring that to the paddock. Train as hard as you like throughout the week but focus on your strength on the field, on the field you’re there for one thing and one thing only… that is to win. Doesn’t matter how you do it, either individually, listening to the coach or doing the little things like kick n chase.

    We need to form this win at all costs attitude.

    Winning will achieve that…



  • Yes but first we must stay patient and complete sets or we will just be pissing into the wind again.



  • The teams to find or develop a Beau Scott type player.

    An aggressor, that people hate running at.

    Hard as nails, aggressive, a bloke that everyone loves playing alongside.

    Look what happened when we had Gareth Ellis for a few years.

    Sadly these types of players don’t grow on trees.

    Joel Edwards has this wrap.

    I’m guessing Joel may debut for us in our must win game against the Knights probably at the expense of Alioli.



  • And yes it is a must win game even in Rd 6….long long year if we get beaten by them again.



  • one person isn’t gonna change much. if anything, we would turn beau scott or JWH into a little baby.
    gareth ellis simply played the way he always did, he didn’t change our culture. our defense was still like a wet paper bag during our “glory days” of '11/'12.

    we just need a ruthless mentality. i dont think we understand the importance of a win. training is for learning, games are there to win.

    We need Daniel Fitzhenry.

    If he’s not on JTs Christmas card list, we’ll probably never see him in first grade. 😒

    Why would he sign him then?



  • Is Joel Edwards injured? When is his expected return?



  • What we really need is a combination of things;
    1. A strong and consistent board who have a plan, are patient and who understand what effective management is.
    2. Sensible and effective recruiting.
    3. Constructive, unbiased and merit based selection policies.
    4. A firm, calm and knowledgeable coach who is able get the best from his charges and make the tough decisions.
    5. The development of a resilient, disciplined and ‘team first’, club culture.
    Its simple really!



  • a les boyd type player would be handy.

    over the past 12 months nathan brown has been suggested as a possible coaching option but his newcastle are really struggling.they havent looked liked winning a game.

    with our 2 state of origin incumbents and a possible third in tedesco, wests tigers would be considered to have a stronger roster than newcastle and are performing better.

    the team has had two wins.we have two more wins than newcastle.

    considering last years performances,we could only have expected a possible win against the gold coast
    after four rounds.we have two wins against sides we were expected to lose to.

    following wests tigers can be a frustrating thing but to be realistic,the teams going okay.

    elijah taylor is no les boyd,but he could be a valuable pickup.
