The Trial Form...



  • Hey fellow forumers,I have read many of the threads and posts regarding our team,the new recruits and the lack of talent within the team…Trials are predominately just that,Ivan has his thoughts and plans for the upcoming season,however he needs a guidline on the players and their positions,fitness and capabilities…
    Although many think we will not be all that competitive this year,we may also be surprised at how well we may be going once the team gels and Ivan puts his plans to work…I honestly don’t think that there is a need to overeact on a couple of trial games…granted each and everyone of us has an opinion regarding our team,the negativity from some is quite justified,our track record isn’t that good in the last few seasons and the criticism is justified…

    Lets all wait and see how we emerge as a team in the opening 5/6 games before we become to critical of our team,you know the one we love and support…let Ivan do his job and if things arent going to well then lets unleash fury…but give him the chance first…

    Just my opinion and if you think Im out of place with my summation then please feel free to post your criticism … 😉



  • From memory our first five rounds in the draw are horrible,if we win one or two during this period it will be great and more than expected,however if we drop the first five the doom and gloom scribes will be feasting on our team.Time will tell but I hope this side remains focused and builds momentum as the season progresses.

    You are right Chevy,but,if the team does get beaten in the first 5 games and have performed ammicably and look to improve every game,then that has to be positive signs that we are heading in the right direction…

    we havent got a team of “world beaters"but we have had a” world of beatings"in the past,lets hope Ivan can develope his team to become better than we have had or expected to be……



  • Lets all wait and see….

    I dont think anyones bailing after a poor trial game…most of us will still be here this year, next etc etc touch wood…regardless of how good or crap we are

    Yes we will all be here. I myself normally like to be kissed first, but with the Wests Tigers I have learned just to assume the position.

    You’re right ink - we all blow up occasionally but that’s because we crave success. I, like you and most others, will always be a supporter.

    BUT, where I get frustrated is the increasingly large gap between the ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’. It’s so frustrating to see the Rorters pick up whoever they like while we are always in the hunt and them miss out at the final hour! Sadly, for now, the elite do not want to be associated with us.

    I think and I hope the club is aware and are determined to turn this around.

    I think your right Ink,but I will be excited at kick off for the first game to start the season…My main reason for the excitement is that even after trials,teams gel better and know that when the comp starts,it time to work and earn the dollars….we dont have that poor a team in reality,they just have to improve their game basics and fitness,the rest will come…

    So less of this you reckon…get behind the whole Team…I like it…

    @:

    Brooks needs to stop playing in his high heels….it makes kicking so much harder…might even run better…who knows…

    :roll

    Exactly GEO we have given him heaps and now is his chance to be a real NRL playmaker….he has been given plenty of chances and now he has a reasonable pack to play behind, and an excellent coach…

    No more slipping in the boot…which I thought this thread was about…

    Everyone getting behind the team…Yes…?



  • A win up in North Queensland against the team that came second last year and a loss to the Sharks who look like a top four side on the face of it is pretty good.

    Although after seeing us play out at Cambo on Saturday night I worry if we have the firepower or the class to score enough points to worry most teams.

    Sure there is going to be heaps of improvement, but with so many new faces it will take time, but I still come back to three major areas we are lacking in…speed,class and a kicking game…and I am not sure we have the troops who can cover these things.



  • I’m still not expecting much from the team this year. We’ll need a new halfback and fullback before we start going anywhere. 12th or 13th.
