I totally agree Kev. Despite the scoreline, they continued to try hard and they will have more wins this season.

Realistically though, this game went predictably. Just look at the comparative rosters. While the Tigers have a salary cap problem, it’s one that the Roosters seem to be able to magically bypass, despite their superstar roster.

@cochise While I understand where you are coming regarding their high salaries, their sporting careers are short and they are still relatively young when they retire, with an uncertain future career path. They, have been dedicated to football at the expense of other qualifications and I would certainly not begrudge them testimonials.

Can’t agree with you on that. Lawrence is still a better player than Garner at this stage of their careers and is way in front of Eisenhuth, MCK and Aloiai. He can also still fill in as a centre if there is a game time injury in the backline.

I am very disappointed that we only get to see one game when attending matches over the last few weeks. I enjoy watching the lower grades play, with players pushing for promotion. Reducing the day to one match takes away from the value for members and non-members. Does anyone else feel the same way? Why would the NRL be doing this?

I could not agree less. Tedesco is the most likely player to give Tigers fans a few more thrills in what has been a disastrous season and will keep a few more rear ends on seats. Woods has been trying hard and may help with the learning curve of some of our younger forwards.

See post today under signings thread. Text copied below from MSN:

Western Force outside back Curtis Rona is keeping his sights on a Wallabies berth and has no plans to leave the vulnerable Super Rugby franchise for the NRL’s Wests Tigers, his manager says.

Rumours Rona was set to join the Tigers were sparked when an apparent social media post by the speedster with the words “on the bus” were circulated.

The bus reference could be interpreted as alluding to comments by the NRL club’s coach Ivan Cleary, who used it as a metaphor when discussing players’ commitment earlier this year.

But manager Steve Gillis denied Rona was looking to leave the Force as they await an Australian Rugby Union decision that could axe them from Super Rugby.

“There’s been absolutely no discussion whatsoever (about joining the Tigers),” Gillis told AAP.

"He’s under contract. So until we know anything different, nothing changes. He’s very happy in rugby and doing well.

"We anticipate he’ll play for the Wallabies this year. So there’s plenty of positives.

“We were hoping he’d get there (in the current Wallabies squad) but I think he accepts that well and is pushing forward and hopefully makes the next one.”

Rona, who has played some wing this season but spent most of his time at outside centre, has been one of the Force’s best players.

The 25-year-old joined the Perth-based side on a two-year deal after switching from NRL team Canterbury at the end of last year.

He has previously said he would be open to a rugby league return if his Super Rugby career failed, but hoped he could stay with the Force in his hometown.
