Tough game at Wollongong but if we can hold their edge back rowers in Sims and Frizelle and get over the top of Paul Vaughan we will win this game. On paper they have 4 origin players and we have none. Tigers have the better side and better coach but the game is away from home .

I like our pack Mikalele, Musgrove, Twal, Aloai and our edge forwards Garner and Luch look strong. I think we are badly underrated this year.

Didn’t we beat them convincingly at WIN last year?

I read somewhere that we haven’t played there for ten years which surprises me. So I guess not. McGregor will be sweating bullets.

The players knew. Let’s not kid ourselves. God some players are stupid.

Bj and Luci
Because they want to be here

This is the only acceptable reason. Madness to ask this question before we’ve even played a game.

If the question was along the lines of “who is the best WestsTigers backrow/centre ?” I could understand your point. But it’s not.
Recruitment has to work this stuff out before they sign players

The club had no choice but to release Matterson. He backed them into a corner. It wasn’t a choice for them to have the Luilea’s over Matterson.

The WTs did have a choice. Matterson was only in his first year of a three year contract.
This happens to clubs on occasions, take Cronulla for example.

You’re wrong. It was either hold him to the contract and run the risk of him poisoning the minds of teammates, or cut their losses and move on.

LOL. You’ve just described a choice.

Only if you want to split hairs. Anyone with a brain knows there was only one choice and the club made it.

I have a brain and I believe the club handled this very very poorly. Your right there was one choice , you stay contracted to the tigers unless the eels give us a player we want.

They did. They gave us Luciano. It’s just you can’t see that.

Did Luciano play for the eels?? That’s a Donald trump special. Or you saying we only got Luciano because we released matterson? Which again is incorrect because we still have money to spend.

I’m saying, the club and Matterson, wrightly or wrongly decided that it was beneficial for both parties to move on. Once that was acheived, we were able to move with genuine intentions to attract a player that we figured was a a good match and offered him a good deal. Parramatta are a-holes. Everyone knows that. But would we have gone for Lucy if we still had Matterson? Maybe yes, maybe no. When it was clear that he wasn’t a good fit for the team it was time to move on and we did. We don’t need people like Matterson. Parramatta did us a favour. Getting bogged down in that crap serves no purpose.

No that’s not what you were saying. And what I’m saying is that we shouldn’t have rolled over for nothing. We should have said you want matto we want the parra forward that’s signed to us next year. We release matto you release him. We rolled over and they didn’t , so they now have both.

Lucy has nothing to do with this, because we had no salary cap issues at the time and he plays for the dragons , so the two are unrelated.

Thanks for informing me of what it was I was saying.

RUOK

Fine thanks. I don’t get into online arguments with arrogant blow ins. I feel sorry for you.

I so hope this isn’t gonna be another case of high hopes being decimated in the first half of a game. What a downer that would be. Carn you boys! Would love to be there.

Yep, and leather hats oddly enough.

Mikaele, Twal and Garner will all build off the back of great seasons last year. Aloiai will take a while to settle into playing 13 but will be one of our best come the end of the season. Musgrove and Leilua are decent additions and will prove to be excellent buys.

the tools are there. once we get Grant to get them properly rolling forward I think a lot of people are going to sit up and take notice of our pack, they may be inexperienced but they’ve got plenty to prove and a truckload of youthful exuberance.

The jury is out on Garner. I remember Eisenhuth had a great backend 2017 and we thought he was going to kill it.

Agree. His hole running and combination with Brooks is good on the left. However I am still suspect of Garner’s defence. I think he was dropped because of his defence (Or injury) last season then came back better in the last third of season. Hopefully he continues to improve

No he wasn’t.

Where did he go? . I know his dad pasted away and he needed time away at one point. Maybe he wasn’t dropped but missed a lot of games and came back onto the bench for two games then made the starting side again.

The coach wanted him back but he was so affected, he simply needed time.
