Comon JT you know its the only logical option…woodsy is 23 he dosent need any more spotlight. Give it to chrissy, no nonesense and it will really give him incentive to perform. He will be the corner stone of our backrow this year.

RE: Wests Tigers Captaincy Statement...
JT has a game plan that can be executed by players of experience and has to be done a certain way.
Potter had a game plan that was more tailored to the players abilities,
If potter had of been givin an entrance ala JT, money from the nrl, new board etc his game plan would of shone through as the right one for a young team learning football. They’ll be good for JT’s style in a few season, atm they need to just play to there abilities.
For all potter didnt do well most of our youngesters kept up there talent and skill increased in his two years.
on another note JT lost blair, thompson, fulton, austin who all played vital roles in the previous two years.
Tigers really need a man with some football personality and create something from what we have and I hope JT turns into that person.
RE: Brooks Moses Tedesco....
I think Moses is the most interesting TBH he’s got that spark and it makes him hungrier, but still has the level head to call it the way it is. But never will back down in the mean time. Yeah Brooks is important but that will be through his calmness which has a proven track record…moses has to prove himself as a live wire…tedesco basically already has.
Whats promising about tedesco is his personality, saying you’ve been weak in an emotional situation is a huge endorsement of level headed person. That attitude lets the bigger things take effect because its not your way or the high way…which can be problematic and weve seen before ie benji and farah in the past. The personalities of your superstars are so important!! Think Barba, Ferguson, Carney or Lockyer, Smith, Slater
Can Wests still buy balmain?
If push comes to shove do wests have the option to buy balmain out?
I think that could be in all honesty the best possible outcome. Wests gain a whole leg of junior development, imagine what they could do with rep teams/weekend comps. They also have the possibility to gain another revenue stream if done right. It would also give Balmain the chance to stay alive, albiet under control by the wests group. They would be silly to abondain the Balmain name and it some cases supporters. The best players go to one place any way. Wests and Balmain are family, and as a Supporter if anything is going to happen I would rather them stick together, its our biggest asset.
I would like to hear, what would be the problem if the Balmain Club was given to Wests Group? Wests with dignity, then have full control of a NRL team and just gained a chunk of juniors. This all while keeping the Wests Tigers owned by its foundation and bringing us all together.
What will we see next weekend?
It will be very interesting to gauge how some of our players perform next week. They have to turn around and go out against the premiers without there captain and speeed man again. More importantly wil potter fix our horrible attack - brooks is good at what he does but its not creating anything at the moment, yeah anasta has experience but he has no actions on the field! Austin must be five eigth this weekend…but i reckon potter will wait for farah.

RE: Benji return
What if benji returns and he buys into potters style! With the foward pack we have now benji could be back to par what he can be, especially with a good halfback. He should go straight to super league for the remainder of the season to make some of his dollhairs and maybe get a bit of his mojo back. Then sign back with the tigers for 2015!! It would be a great thing for the club in my opinion.
RE: Martin Tapau
I like how fast he has become an important part of our go forward structure.
Patterson will take longer to find his feet in our team as his role is diffrent, but i Still would prefer too see Patterson at lock, Tapau in the Backrow and Put Blair back to prop. Get Tapau sitting right next to brooks and running them hard angles on the edge!!
There is just so much potential around the park if this team dosen’t take a backwards step they will be a wave in this years finals.
