RE: Kidwell to split from Tigers
Our defence hasn’t worked consistently for some time. So the defensive coach has to go.
And it’s not much better now. We won yesterday by 12 but conceded 24. I don’t recall many games were we have held a team to one or two tries.
Is Webster the previous NYC coach? And is defence a big part of the nyc comp?
RE: Who really knows what is going on internally....
I think the issue maybe that the Tigers are wanting to change the terms of the contract? We all know there is a minimum that he must be registered for under the cap with the new club and the rest goes into our cap.
They may be putting pressure on RF to take a paycut in these transfer discussions? We all state he will get what he is owed but that’s not exactly the case if all parties agree including nrl, a contract can be regnotiated and replaced so the club maybe saying new club pay $300 we pay $300 and RF cop $300 Pay cut??
I would say all things being equal RF should be at least a $400 - 500k signing (putting opinions aside). And as others have said in the forums we haven’t presented him well and RF and his advisors haven’t help neither.
Interesting times ahead but something has to give!
RE: Who do you drop for Tedesco?
I think Teddy is second week of the finals?
Maybe Lovett/Siro (Siro only played a few minutes yesterday)
You can push Rankin into 9 and put DH into the pack rotation. JAC has the potential to score from anywhere (I agree he is not a match winner).
RE: Should/Will RF get his Leichhardt farewell given we are out of contention?
He hasn’t left the club yet so why a farewell. I like him as a player, i can’t comment on what he is like as a person, so i make no personal remark.
But don’t you have to be leaving to get a farewell?
Also i should say that I’m not for or against JT, can’t comment on him as a person neither, but he is in charge of our team so he should make the calls. Right or Wrong. (I do reserve the right to criticise and praise him - its my right as a fan)
My personal opinion is that RF is one of our top 17 and should be in the side.
However, if he was leaving then i would have liked for him to get his farewell! I have cheered for him over the years and while we had some lean years, we did have some good years and he along with the rest of the team have given us one hell of ride!
I am in my late 40’s and have supported the tigers since i was 6 and not living far from Leichhardt didn’t miss many games, over those years we have had some great players in our sides but never won a GF! RF and his team mates gave us that in 2005 and some will say it was a long time ago but, that is the only GF we have won so lets give him some respect.
If and when JT does that for us i would say the same about him (But i still reserve the right to criticise)
Either way I’m at Leichhardt on Sunday! Go the Tigers!!!
RE: Sticky Set To Rest Players In Tigers Clash
My first post, couldn’t find an intro page. Long time fan, first time forum post.
Regardless, the raiders have been strong even when they have had players out. We shouldn’t worry about about who Sticky plays and who he doesn’t, just focus on playing whats in front of us.
Im having a Thiaday moment “wasn’t the best post but i got the job done”!
