Gamble looks a fantastic prospect. Not sure why some people are jumping up and down at his supporters. Hopefully he gets a chance in first grade because he won’t let Ivan down.
He might need a few chances if he keeps on dishing up those performances
Dare I say Tui will get picked before him if Reynolds and Marshall aren’t ready to go for next game.

Was not as bad as some people are saying. Played better than half the team. Chalk it up to experience. I hope he gets another chance at some stage.

Maybe they should send to Matthew Johns for private lessons

What about trying Gamble in the centres ?? He's got speed, a good step and he's big lad, 6'3" nearly 100 kgs (so they kept on saying during the fox coverage)

Will it stop him kicking on the 3rd?

I think that is every chance of happening now Fonua is out for an extended period..
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..

I just can't work out some of you people.
Even if he was Alfie, Johns, Fittler and Smith all rolled into one . . . do you reckon it would have been hard to shine in that crap team performance we dished up ?
One of the reasons we were travelling so well in the first half is that we had a D Half, and MORE THAN ONE ATTACKING OPTION. Gamble's runs at the line, kicking and passing options always put the defence in 2 minds.
The kid can tackle, too.
He kicked on the 3rd tackle !!!!!!!! is that the first time this season for us ?
Yeah nah. Yeah nah my left one.

Seen enough yesterday to suggest that Tyson is worth persevering with terrible game to debut in promising signs early but tge game changed remarkably when Hodgson came on Canberra for some reason have the wood on us at present probably payback for the times we knocked them out of semi finals I would give him another run with Reynolds starting at nine his experience would be of great assistance to Tyson
I said last week that it wasn’t time to experiment- found out later Reynolds was injured so Gamble had to move up. But as long as we are in semis race he should not be used unless absolutely necessary. Reynolds fit - he plays 6. Benji fit - he’s there to spell Reynolds. Both better options than Gamble at this stage.
If we fall out of contention- sure, see what he’s got. (Which I still think is not much).

That's a shame. Gamble looks hopeless regardless of position.

Look we shouldn't give up on this kid, especially after Sundays debacle - I still think he was used too early, but not many alternatives. Give him the rest of the season in ISP and another off season and give him another go then.

His defence needs to be worked on - playing him in the centre with his defence at the moment where the opposition has more room to move would be a disaster in my opinion.

Think he could still be good though with time and proper tuition - liked the way he had a go in attack, not always the right option but at least he didn't die wondering in a well beaten side.

Looks like Reynolds won’t get Anywhere near the 9 jumper at all, Thank God!,!

Poor start. Should get more than one chance to prove himself. Lolo got numerous chances to show something so I don't see why Gamble shouldn't.
True, Tui played way worse in better team games and held his spot for way to long, give the kid a crack when the team has a fair dinkum dig, I would still rate him to come good if the players around him were trying.

Fairdinkum some of you blokes just don't get it.....Gambles debut was ordinary in a very ordinary team performance,noone said he was going to win the game for us because he is absolutely brilliant..did they...give the kid a chance to prove himself...everybody praised Moses,Brooks for such a long time as being the FUTURE of our club...Moses is playing like crap and Brooks has taken an infinity to prove he is NRL standard...

I cant stand it when someone isn't given the chances that others have had because of being overhyped in a much lower level of football.....GIVE THE KID A CHANCE IN A MUCH BETTER PERFORMING TEAM...

Disappointing to see but this guy has gone off the rails.

He has the finals coming up to build some form and show the club something for 2019, but what im seeing is a complete lack of confidence.

One thing thing that has bothered me about him is that if you look at his Q Cup highlight videos all the breaks, all the great plays are him playing left edge. He hasnt really been able to do that for us, Seems camped on the right trying to fit into our system

Im not willing to give up on him but if he cant produce as a playmaker in the State Cup finals id like to see him trial as a left centre or left edge forward. Failing that id say he will be moved on and pick up a back up role offer from another club.

Tui is mentally lazy and ‘vacant’ ... Gamble is a real prospect that is able to scheme, run, organise on the fly - I think he deserved more credit, not judge on a game where he was thrown into 1st grade against a team (Raiders) that normally put plenty of points on us at full strength.
