Had last nights game been played at Leichhardt Oval you would have seen Home Ground Fortress advantage . Last night’s decision to play at SCG and not Leichhardt forfeited any advantage and the scoreboard showed that . Why Campbelltown didn’t swap a home game with Leichhardt only comes down to pig headed board members… anyway they hot their wish and gave up on regaining the energy left in the sheds at Leichhardt after the Boncos game …Warriors would have been giggling at the choice of ground last night …

Leichhardt was already booked by Rugby when the decision was made due to covid to move the game from Campbelltown as was Bankwest for soccer…ANZ was also unavailable…

Maybe they should have given Woolongong a go…66% winning record there…

What Rugby game?
They should of got on the front foot.
When I was at the Broncos game I was already thinking mentioning that the Warriors game will probably be have to played at Leichhardt.
They should of acted then. Not waited till the final hour.
And why should we not have the rights to play at our home ground for a ground that is for a league team over a rugby team.
The rugby could have gone to SCG, that was available.

The Western Force played at Leichhardt last night, nothing we could do about it. All our homegrounds were being used by someone else.

Obviously we don’t have enough home grounds then!

Snake?

Geez Cummings can ruin a game. Hope he never gets a chance to ruin a grand final…

Oh!

With rumours Foran may go to Newcastle

Kurt Mann has really turned into a quality 6, I would be trying to acquire his services if that occurs

If he is so great, why the need for Foran? We don’t need more average. Be patient and wait for our next half from the juniors.

After 9 years of no finals Paws I think patience from many fans has run out. I know I’ve just about had enough.

Yeah I’m sorry teddy23, but BE PATIENT or WE NEED TO HAVE PATIENCE are not a phrases that should be used in this forum anymore, ever!

There’s a young kid playing for Leichhardt Wanderers we’ve got our eye on. Good step. Nice pass. Under 9’s I think.

Good kicker too.

He doesn’t miss from in front apparently

Kyle Flanagan just did…

I could be hammered by stats because I haven’t checked but I’d say Flanagan would be a better kicking option than Mbye. Missing the odd easy one is human; missing a season’s worth is not acceptable really

Everybody take a breath and look at what we are for what we are!

We are a team crippled by terrible contracts.
We are team with minimal speed.
We are a team without a consistent spine.
We are team with minimal talent.
We are a team with alot of youth and some inconsistent experienced players.
We are a team with minimal impact players.
We are a team that lacks consistency.

While it hurts we DO NOT have the team to compete every week.

What we do have is a coach trying to install hard work grit and determination. And we are seeing that in quite a few players.

What we have is a super positive recruitment process which is unearthing alot of talent.

what we have is positive for and against which is something I can’t remember having for a long time.

What we have seen is some of the best performances a tigers team has shown in the last ten years in terms of grit, defence and determination.

Lets all be honest we are the average toiler at the moment and we are fighting for consistency.

Lets keep things i perspective we are fighting for an 8th spot but more importantly we are trying to build and identity let it happen there will be speed bumps.

I agree with much of this
I think the problem lays with the performance of a number of the players
Not the coaching staff or recent recruitment
We are signing some exciting young players
Its the older more experienced players that have been letting us down
Lets move them on
They have had years to prove themselves and they are just not capable

For starters we need two new halves that can create more
At least one speedy winger
More aggression in the front row
And more depth
Add to that a hooker that can last the distance after harry leaves
And maybe a fullback with pace

With you till the last line.

That’s why I said Maybe
I think Doueihi is safe under the high ball but doesn’t have that burst of speed we need
Maybe he is injured

Trouble is everyone is looking for a new Teddy, Turbo etc.

There once in a lifetime players - this guy we have imo will be good. Everyone that
plays FB doesn’t have to be Eusan Bolt.

gotta agree, i dont get all the slow comments. Yes he’s not as fast as tedesco but i remember teddy getting run down everytime.

I dont think your number 1 criteria for fullback is can he run 100m and score on his own

Not sure a preferred attribute of your fullback is being run around by a prop though

@tigerap said in Assistant Coaches:

We have Hodgo, a club legend, as an assistant coach…is he any good?, can he coach or has he got the job because of his WT reputation?, why can’t he teach Mbye or AD how to kick goals?, would he be an assistant for any other club?( doubt it)…I think we need to look at out assistant coaches…they should be hired based on their skill level not on their WT past reputations

I doubt we have the financial capacity to lure additional outstanding coaching staff to the club
