If Packer is out, we are definitely one or 2 props short this year. Not good news IMO.

You thinking what I’m thinking?

What? That a tiara would work better with that outfit than the head band? Well the yes, we’re on the same page!

Mbye killed it at fullback for us when he first joined the club, he was one of the best for those 9 games. Don’t know why he struggled there last year but I rated him at centre, strong in defence, ran hard, good passing and hits holes.

I hope the Grant deal happens so he’s not stuck in another new position at hooker

I doubt he get stuck there now that Reynolds has a green light.

We are in big trouble if JR is our starting no nine, his D/H service is terrible

Is Reynolds the starting 9? Where did you hear that?

Apparently it’s where he’s been training.

Oh, ok, so josh is the replacement if Grant doesn’t make it

I don’t think Grant is a certain starter if he signs.

You would have to think he would be starting after settling in. Otherwise the whole swap deal is a waste of time. Can’t see WT going through that process to run him around with the magpies. He may as well stay in Melbourne and play with their reggies.

Mbye starts at hooker Talau and Leilua in centres and Grant coming off the bench

I wonder where Reynolds fits in.

I’d rather Reynolds and Benji share the hooking role, Mbye is a terrible hooker! I really can’t understand why people want him to play there.

Because Reynolds is way worse. Reynolds cant pass from dummy half. His service is so slow. That and he ALWAYS wants to run. That whole “high energy” enthusiasm thing that he has built his game around doesnt work at 9 where we need him to fit into the plan of the team.

When he passes from dummy half he looks like a brickie tossing bricks along a line. He sorts of bends down, stands up and tosses the ball in a looping fashion.looks really awkward and slow.

Reynolds and Benji sharing the role did really well at the back end of last season. Mbye’s games playing hooker were terrible!

I think Benji did well because of his touch footy background. He is quite used to getting DH and passing. We will have ta free to disagree regarding JRey. He only looked effective off the back of a quick play the ball where he could get out and run but in terms of bringing players on to the ball to meet the advantage line he was sadly lacking and I don’t think passes at all well left to right.

Mbye isn’t great but I feel he is better than JRey but I am hoping we get this player swap through and have a specialist in the position.

I don’t know about anyone else but this year just feels different as a fan. Normally I am expecting a 9-12 finish with a forlorn hope os sneaking into the eight. But just watching Madge, I am kind of thinking the finals drought may be over. Our signings have been really good, the JRey situation looks like it may work itself out and we have a really good balance of youth and experience.

I am thinking 6 - 8 is very achievable

Been playing with EOS over the years. Got down to 60c but recently went $10.70. Great little Aussie space company mixing with the big boys. Some very funky tech including satellite tracking, space communications amongst other things.

Gone pretty hard but hopefully this is just the start.

Why are so many experts here dirty on Mbye ? I think the bloke is a quality player and one that makes S O O , cant be too much of a waste if he can play at the elite level

I think because he came mid 2018 and was good. My feeling was that he was playing injured last year and offered little in attack and was sometimes suspect under the high ball.

I think with aid of time and a full off season, he can get back to his best. Not sure if centre is his best position though, the game now seems to want bigger bodies in that role. I think he’d be a very good 9 though.

Tigers believe JAC doesn’t have an interest in signing for 2021 and beyond as well. So can put that one to be for now

I loved the guy when he was here but I don’t see this as a good opportunity for us. He comes across as being Latrell like and we will just get dragged through the mud for no benefit.

I also think he is a winger and we will be right for wingers.

We have no pace on the wings. There needs to be a huge recruitment drive this year for wingers with genuine pace.

We’re building nicely I think Paws. Next year will allow us to target some decent strike wingers. Still may land one this year, who knows.

A pacey winger and top level forward completes the team. Main issue for next year is replacing Benji - either Doueihi goes to 5/8 and we sign a fullback, or we just sign another 5/8. Either way it’s a very important position to fill and if we don’t get it right it could cost us.

JAKE TRUEMAN

He’ll be at the Tigers next year. You heard it here first!

WOW!! Looks the goods …

Looks like a good player but some of that defence He beat was abysmal (Especially on the goal line).
Also in the last try, did he pass to Jordan Rankin who passed to the winger to score?

@cqtiger said in Who ARE The Tigers Back-room Staff?:

Yeah it’s funny how many changes to the people in the background happen over time.

I remember Cherrie Mescia had a physio role and we had a tiny little chinese club doctor.

Then Warren McDonnell was big in recruitment, then left. Heard he’s back but only for juniors?

It would be good to get to know more about the now.

I think Andrew “jumper” Leeds was the physio

Cherry Mescia had a role in strength and conditioning

The club physician was Dr. Donald Kuah ( he was around for about 10 years)

What’s The Buzz this morning

SHOOSH IIII: Which former Test star and Fox Sports commentator met with Tigers coach Michael Maguire recently to discuss a coaching role?

Any ideas?

Anyone but Blocker. He can’t even get half the names of the players right and hes STILL not ever the merger. Pretty sure he thinks it’s Balmain Tigers out there running around. The less involved he is the better

Loz maybe ??

Didnt he just join the knights coaching staff?
Like a month ago.

Its Gasnier for sure.

As long as he isn’t commentating …used to be a Lozza thread about his shocking commentating

Wasn’t Lozza blocked last year from working with us due to his employment with TAB via Sky Sports?

Yeah thought maybe the NRL may have changed their minds perhaps …Im thinking who I’d want helping the boys

Daley ,Johns or Cronk would be good …pass on the rest

Agreed - the other guy who could be good would be Scott Prince I reckon

Matty Johns and blocker

No thanks - especially Johns (he’s the wrong one)

Matt Johns is pretty respected as a halves coach. I remember he did a lot of work with Cronk.

He did…and i think he is the “right” brother to have
