lol whilst i know it doesnt mean much it would be nice to at least pretend we care.

Didn’t know there was going to be a 2nd Grade comp this year.

I have heard that there is big wraps on Eisenhuth according to a current player and is expected to make his NRL debut this year… So will be watching him closely.

I care whenever a player pulls on a Wests Tigers jersey…

All in All after all the pro’s and cons of the tournament pretty happy with the squad…will be good to see how the young and fringe guys go…

There will be spots in the NRL 17 up for grabs…

@Sabre:

Lol, is that cos Rankin’s in the side?

I’m assuming Ryland Jacobs isn’t fully recovered from surgery? Or maybe we didn’t want to interfere with taking 11 forwards to a 9s tournament.

Fairly forward heavy, but so is our entire squad. I think this would have been a good opportunity to ease Idris back into rugby league. I will be interested to see how Heleta goes.

Rankin cops a poor wrap on here, I don’t mind him.
More the lack of our top players that’s disappointing.

Would have been good to see Idris named too.

If Idris is still working on his fitness the only thing a nines tournament would do is demoralise him…

These guys should all do pretty well at nines:

The squad needs more pace though. Would look better with Simona in it.

I guess we think the 9’s is a fowarfs game with a few halves. No outside backs required.

Brooks being the chief playmaker might be just what he needs.
Its a shame we dont take it seriously but there enough there to get me interested and mildly excited.

Get a good laugh when many bag this side considering 80% of these players are Regular first graders or have played 1st grade says a lot about the NRL side ! 😆
