Main Card

Kamaru Usman vs. Jorge Masvidal
A. Volkanovski vs. Max Holloway
Petr Yan vs. José Aldo
Jéssica Andrade vs. Rose Namajunas
Paige VanZant vs. Amanda Ribas

Great card

Usman by decision
Volk decision
Petr Yan by Tko

Not sure about the rose fight
Ribas by submission

I’m usually wrong but 😂

Hopefully the BMF gets BMF’d!
Go Usman🤟
Volk to prove his decisive win over Max the first time round was no fluke. Would be great if he could knock him out though. Do it in style!
Rose to win easily via unanimous decision.
Yan by decision. Would prefer Aldo to win though.

I think he might
Usman has insane cardio and improved striking.
I love to see Aldo win also

I hope Rose wins,that was hard to watch last time she got dropped on her head

I think Rose wins easily.

@Kazoo-Kid said in Our forward pack, notable weaknesses.:

Garner is still developing. He has only played 28 games and is 24 years of age. He has shown enough glimpses in every department to suggest he could be a top quality player. Maybe one level below a rep player. If we persist with him he will turn good. Otherwise, I could quite easily see him ripping it up at another club. He’s the exact type of player the Roosters would turn into a gun - a player another club couldn’t be bothered properly developing.

Curious to which other players you are crediting the Roosters for “properly developing when another club couldn’t be bothered”? Pretty sure all their good players from other clubs were good players before the Roosters pilfered them.

All of this makes me so angry. Because of Latrell’s pin up boy profile and perceived ‘vulnerable emotional state’ which has led to the League’s fear of racism accusations, all semblance of fairness and consistency is waived. I know this is dangerous territory, but the situation really does stink of something above the normal run of the game. Good point about Koroisau’s accidental head shot v Reynolds accidental kick. Both victims of the hits went for HIAs yet only one perpetrator gets a suspension. Then there’s the actual officiating of the game. Clearly, Cummins was out to cane the Tigers at every opportunity. He did and we were pinned in our half for the first 60 minutes of the game. What the NRL don’t realise is that most supporters, not just the Tigers fans, actually don’t like seeing obvious unfairness. It turns them off the game because the majority of Aussies believe in seeing people get a fair go. At the moment, half the teams in the League are not getting a fair go.

I think it is far worse that some clubs get a “leg up” each week from the officials both on and off the field Souff,Donkeys,Melboring Pamfers and Slimey worms mainly.The legacy of Turdberg still has to be removed

wasn’t Cummins the one that pinned us against the sharks last year for playing the ball when they hadn’t called held? For the first time on modern nrl history

Yep…

game turned on that decision

Maybe Nofo could learn to just play the ball after he’s tackled and play it properly. It seems to be a
hard ask for him.

It seems a hard ask for plenty in the NRL. Some get away with it though. That’s the really galling part.

@jirskyr said in Cummins and the Nrl are a joke.:

The real problem is, as Geo said in another thread, Tigers need to be good enough where these ref decisions don’t make such an impact.

I totally agree with all the complaints and I cannot for the life of me see how Reynolds might be suspended for accidental head contact attempting to toe through what was actually a dead ball, and it only became an issue because Graham dived from an offside position. Graham doesn’t infringe and he doesn’t get kicked in the head.

It’s like breaking your arm after falling whilst trying to illegally enter a property. Yeah it’s a shame you got hurt but you should not have put yourself in that position in the first place.

Nevertheless, for whilst ever Tigers are a 50/50 prospect, those decisions and unfavourable bounces are going to hurt more than for good sides. Tigers need to be a team where the refs decisions on a particular day don’t cripple our game management or whittle down our defence. We need to respect possession when we get it and nullify the bad calls.

Tigers absolutely failed to respond to the unfortunate decisions. Teams win comps when they overcome bad decisions, overwhelm unlucky bounces and a lack of 50/50s. We lost against Souths, not because of some bad reffing, because we continually dropped the ball when trying to wrestle our way back into the match.

Bit hard to just roll with the punches when you are getting stitched up by pathetic refereeing every week. We are a very average team who do ourselves no favours with boneheaded actions and hopeless errors, the last thing we need is a ref absolutely caning us out of the contest. I’d much rather get a huge leg-up in the first half, like Rabbits got on Friday, control possession and put a match-winning score on the board early before the ref throws a few token penalties the opposition’s way to make the penalty count look respectable.
Cannot remember the last time our supporter’s could of said “wow, the refs really gave us a helping hand in that game”. It just doesn’t happen.

@GNR4LIFE said in We need a new captain:

It’s a minor issue. You don’t have to be a captain to lead by example and inspire teammates.

Conversely, it’s no use being captain if you don’t lead by example and don’t inspire teammates. That’s Mbye.

@Furious1 said in We need a new captain:

Thought i’d bump this. Anybody who saw the Raiders v Storm game last night saw the influence a decent captain can have. Nice play by Smith just before halftime with the line dropout. As a supporter, extremely frustrating, but got the desired result.

Frustrating that the refs don’t grow some figs and put the germ in his place. They just pander to the flog.
Hated Harrigan as a ref but he wouldn’t have let himself get walked over by Smith, he would’ve whacked his ego and let him know who was in charge out there.

@OzLuke said in We need a new captain:

just look at our squad, and have a look at who plays their guts out every week and leads by example…take out the mistakes that players make, but who is honestly a true leader???

I would suggest Nofa…I think he has the personality to do it on the field and off the field.

I really like Nofa but i dont think a winger is close enough to the action to make judgement.MBye is not the right choice as he seems to be a mute on the field.

If you have a centre as captain not that far removed from a winger.

I just think Nofa’s personality lends itself to being a bit more captain material.

Noffa would be a great captain. He is the bloke who busts his guts every week, no-one can accuse him of not having a dig. Leads by example, that is what a good captain does.
Mbye is just a grinning cardboard cutout with seemingly no passion or fire in his belly. Too easy for blokes underneath him to see that and think it’s acceptable to just go through the motions, be mediocre year after year. I’m hazarding a guess Mbye wouldn’t be a standout in setting the standard at training.
