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

Where are the attacking lines Luke Garner used to run on the edge?
Where is the cocky half-back with great pace off the mark and an ability to find holes for supporting runners.
Where is our goal-kicker?
Where is the support play, or the offloads?
Where is the menace?
Where is our confidence?
Where is Ronny Palmer?

And where is our captain, and that one is solely on Madge for appointing Mbye the fake in the first place.

Benji was captain too… all he did was yell at the ref and get in trouble all game. Last night there was no leader at all.

Still on Madge, he appointed them.

To be honest I’m not convinced captains do that much at NRL level. Only thing you want your captain to do is be good at talking to the ref, everyone out on the field should be striving to lead the team and set an example.

For example packer is a great leader out there but no way you’d want him chatting to the refs all game. Captains aren’t gonna change a game like that I think personally

Captains not only need to be good talkers, they need to lead by example…Mbye just doesn’t do that

@TigersBusDriver said in If Madge fails.....:

It’s clearly a team and mental problem. Against both the Titans and Warriors we take an early lead only to then sit back and get out-enthused by weaker teams and allow them back in. Madge was clearly not trying to be complacent, he was giving it to them in the dressing room at half time when we were up! So how can he be blamed for the complacency and lack of effort we saw last night

Saw the half time speech and blowup…first thing I noticed was the players couldn’t give a rats…instead of looking at Madge in the eyes, they were Looking down, around and basically tuned out

@Chainlink said in Signing Suggestions & Rumours:

We need a halfback. Brooks a running 5/8. Don’t think there are many options in NRL off contract. Maybe Cade Cust.

Are there any organising halves in the UK worth a shot? Sezer, Jake Trueman? Raiders found a good one.

Cust re-signed with Manly

Jock Madden is an organising half who, as a bonus, can kick goals… 2 for 1

If Madge fails to turn the WT into a successful team, and by this I mean semi finals footy in 2021 and beyond if he stays…I see the club throwing in the towel…

I have no idea where you play Doueihi especially if (as suggested) we are paying him 650k per year.

As a fullback he is safe under the high ball and can hit a gap, but is slow and his positioning has been ordinary all year.

From what I have seen his defence is terrible and I have concerns around him defending on an edge in the frontline. I am not sold on him as a 5/8 as while he can throw a good pass, from what I have seen the ball is so slow through his hands.

They say that the good players always seem to have time, he always seems rushed or unable to make the play. Again tonight there were a couple of times where he seemed to have time and space & numbers outside him, but was caught and died with the ball.

from what I have seen I think his best position is centre, and again we are paying big money for a centre. I would also like to see what he can do as a 5/8.

My initial impression is that again we have paid overs for someone who is a pretty good footballer, but a bit of a jack of all trades who can adequately cover a number of positions, but will not tsand out in any of them.

He certainly isn’t inspiring the confidence he did when first signed. Is he really that slow, or injured? What’s the consensus there? Feel like I’m missing something… At the moment he’s slower than a wet week, and if this is as quick as he is then he’ll only ever contribute as much as Mbye does to our attack. I don’t think there’s much upside there. Seems fairly evasive considering his lack of pace though, and good under the high ball.

He is playing inured…

Dylan Smith…have you ever watched him play?..he is rubbish…

The reality is Madge doesn’t have much to chose from

By all reports McIntyre didn’t stand out before he took his chance

Have a look at photos of McIntyre when he joined us and today…very different body, clearly has put in a lot of work to improve

Looked like he’s aged 10 years
😆 😆
