2016 compare to leading clubs



  • If u told me start of year we would be 2-3 wins behind Broncos and Bulldogs I would of laughed

    For all the obvious positive those clubs have over tigers.
    Finances facilities cap issues etc
    We have succeeded we have also resigned leading players and hopefully can add to depth
    Then there is no excuse to aim at top 7 next year


    Every team has there issues and comparing to a few clubs we have minor issues

    I’m not surprised at all. I think all those other positives are overrated. We have the most important thing going for us and that is a good squad.

    The big difference is that the clubs behind us that are usually in the Eight will probably be back up there next season .



  • Yeh agree but as said if we can gain 2 players or juniors improve we will compete

    Remember pre season we joked would we have enough players left. But the few that were released I don’t think have kicked on.
    Funaki?? Broncos
    2x Bulldogs. Fine and Lamar
    Mcconachie ?


    Plus brooks Moses defence have improved out of sight

    Maybe. I think though that 2 things matter the most - how good the players are and how lucky you get when it comes to injuries.

    There is no reason we can’t be a top 8 team for a number of years if we get luck with injuries.



  • True but they have the money to buy the players they want, and they have no problem in attracting the top level players. Something we struggle with.



  • Let’s not forget we are also ahead of Souths, Manly, and the Roosters. I wish that I had taken bets with my mates that support those teams about who would finish higher on the ladder



  • We didnt improve our position re Brisbane
    They regressed theirs which makes us look closer to them
    We cant claim we are going good based on others failures

    Real test for us is the remaining 6 games
    Will really tell where we are at end



  • We are competing in clearly a much tighter Comp
    So have the other teams gotten worse or have the comp improved
    Manly showed they can compete. Roosters compete not constant winning but compete
    I remember 10+ teams use to be a walkover

    I get sick of people saying that when we lose and others win we’re crap. But when we win and they lose, we’re still crap and they’ve gone backwards. Ever heard of credit where it’s due?

    you seriously cant be having a dig at me
    All i said was i dont like to get carried away

    Have you have heard this one ?
    you might have won the battle but the war isnt over yet.

    So no need to get cocky over a few win
    I never discredit my team when they win or when they have put in an effort and lost.

    To me it looks like we are arguing 2 different points here
