No goal kicker for three years = farcical



  • How can we have spent 9 million and not prioritised a goal kicker? That is 3 games lost. Simple maths tells you that you will lose games like this.

    Whoever has overseen signings, Pascoe, needs to be fired.

    Someone had to say ‘hey, maybe kicking 10-15% lower than every other team might cost us’.

    Amateur hour stuff.



  • Think Chook Herron & Eoin Crossan are free next year


  • Banned

    Absolute disgrace.



  • Yep, we would have made the finals last year and this year if we had a goal kicker. Simple thought process for anyone with an IQ over 70 but its the Tigers so there arent many of those at this club. Dumbest team in history.



  • Should be bloody first priority with whatever cap we have left this offseason.



  • If only we were astute enough to grab Ethan Lowe…



  • I am furious about it to be honest.

    Why pay for someone like Huth or Taylor when you could have got similar talent for same money who can kick goals???

    Martin from the Dogs is no worse than those two and kicks 80 plus. We have so many average players that another average one who kicks / one average one out would be easy. It is not like we would have had to drop a star player to accommodate a kicker.

    It HAD to be a priority.

    Absolute basic roster management 101.

    It is why we are a joke of a club.

    Can you imagine the Storm or Rorters going three years without a kicker?

    Hell, no other team does not have one. None.

    Three years!!!



  • @ElleryHanley
    That was a terrible kick from Paul…no word of a lie !!!
    Was never going over



  • @maxxn99 you could sense it from when we scored the try. He was rushing to kick it and he looked extremely nervous and hesitant, didn’t hit through the ball, just made contact with it (Mbye has been very good at striking through the ball).



  • Surely we have a goal kicker somewhere… I cannot blame the Kid for missing that as he is not the full time kicker…
    It’s like we are jinxed… He hits the post from the sideline the try before and with all the bad calls and injuries we just always fall short… Now 9 years without finals…

    Couldnt agree more. Good teams of yesteryear could carry a bog average winger like Halligan for his 90% kicking. However the Tigers are rubbish across the park, you could throw in a gun goal kicker on a wing or centre and wouldnt look out of place with this teams current second grade ability.



  • Imagine if Benji took it and missed it. It would have been worth us losing to see the meltdowns.

    That is the killer thing mate, we would have made it last and probably this.

    It is such a basic thing…every team has one.

    Ethan Lowe is on leas money than ET, kicks 80%.

    Reece Martin was available…kicked almost 90 % when a full time kicker.

    How was it NOT a priority???



  • @Madge
    Iy was like he was kicking off back at half way… didn’t take his time 🤦‍♂️The shot of Hodgos face said it all, he wasn’t confident
    Had a fair game he did but we were jinxed from the time we lost the garlic sauce imo



  • @ElleryHanley The fact Rhys Martin was ignored by 15 other clubs speaks volumes.
