Just a few things from tonights game

1. Would it have made more sense to play galea and ellis in the centres when both our wingers went down

2. Moltzen has to play halfback for the remainder of the year, lui is nothing more then a passer at the moment he non threatening.

3. Refereeing was disgraceful, the 2 forward passes they called on us were pathetic and to make it come full circle they miss a blatant parra forward pass that led to a try

4. Marsahall was outstanding tonight

5. Beau ryan played well and with great courage, i was calling for his head after the raiders game but since then he has been great.

6. Gibbs has to be benched he gives away to many penalties, especially the 8 point try but i will say he was great in covering hayne on that break.

In response:

1. Tough call to make on the run - not often both wingers go down in a game

2. Agree - He is a half thru and thru - because 1) no kick return; 2) he is awesome in the front line pairing Benji

3. Maybe so but sh!t happens - should have been good enough to ovecome that

4. What a player - what a STAR!! They can have Hayne - I will have Benji (although both would be nice 😛 )

5. Had a real crack tonight - made a great chase and tackle on someone?? after a bust down the middle - I am just assuming it was Hayne

6. Gibbs will be the death of me - but what do you do?? He gives a away a penalty but he wasn’t there to give that penalty away Hayne would of scored?? He is that type of player.

As crazy as this seems mate! i think the Weststigers were playing against the NRL tonight! I think they need a new Fairytail team like Parramatta to WOO the people
its good for the NRL especially after all the girl bashing going on ETC
Its pretty eazy to tap a Ref on the shoulder and say[ pull up a few forward pass’s from the tigers ok buddy!!]
it sure looked like that tonight…

with point 3, im not saying we would of scored both times but effectively it is an 18 point swing we were denied the chance of from bad refereeing.

Im of the exact same opinion

IMO Lui is crap,Put Moltzen back to seven and pick Collis or whoever at 1.

Lui isnt crap, it’s just that theyre too cautious in fist grade to give him a go. In the U20s he controls everything, but in firsts theyre reluctant to give him the ball and let him weave his magic.

Give him some time in the State Cup or an off season with the team and the partnerships will gel, just like Moltzen has developed over the last 18months.

We cant expect Lui to set the world on fire straight away when he’s coming into a new team.

  • Refereeing was pathetic
  • Ryan was definitely playing for a 2010 spot tonight and I think his courage proved he’s determined to get it
  • Ayshford MUST stay in the centres and be groomed to fit that mould, not at lock
  • Gibbs is a pillow and an undisciplined player who looks like he should be in the Bundy Cup
  • Heighno is having minimal impact this year. He hits the line and falls to the ground. Spend a week with KG and learn the art of leg drive
  • Gareth Ellis again showed why he deserves every dollar he’s being paid. Absolutely man-handled the Eels
  • Farah doesnt look right. He’s had three quiet/poor games in a row
  • Benji needs to practice kicking for touch
  • The team needs to organise their 5th tackle options. Such a joke
  • Skando once again was Mr. Consistent and put the other forwards (bar KG and Ellis) to shame
  • John Morris once again gave 110%. Sometimes his effort results in a good performance, other times it lacks the shine we’re used to with Farah, Benji and Moltzen etc. but he was thrown into an unusual position tonight and gave his all. It’s times like these when he’s used correctly (as a utility!!!) that makes his decision to go to Cronulla a disappointment

benji was outstanding.
one thing i think let us down was our kicks on last.
i thought it was the wind against us or something, but parra were able to drill the ball down-field n into the corners.

yeah I thought Morris was good and it’s a shame that we’re losing a very handy utility player because he has been positioned poorly since he came to us.

We did have poor 5th tackle options, but I think the main reason for the loss overall was the referring, just can’t believe how bad it was.

And agree with Alex, Lui isn’t crap it’s going to take time for him to find his feet…. as many said before the Sharks game, wrong time to put him in and mess with the halves that were working well previously. Moltzen should be back at half and throw Hanbury or someone at fullback.

1. Deffinately. I thought Lawrence would have gone straight to the wing and instead they move a lock/centre/5-8th in Ayshford out than a hooker/lock in Morris.

2. Lui will improve and Moltzen is at least the clubs 2nd best fullback if not the best.

6. Give Gibbs a break. He works hard and the penalty try call was wrong as were a couple of the penalties.

Who would have been the backrowers then……What a dumb thing to say…

Gibbs doesnt deserve a break. He does it game in game out.

He is just a meathead who will not learn.

You listen to Goose Gould too much 😉

LOL, yep, that’s why they awarded 2 tries which weren’t really tries to the Tigers.

Morris at lock, Heighington, Payne and Payten in the back-row with Gibbs, Skandalis and Galloway up front.
