Don’t know if this is possible but a live call-in show after games would be awesome.

Obviously the dummy half is important to get right in the forward pack and for most of 2017/18 we didn't get that right. However this coming season it will be easier for the coach with a fit Farah and Liddle.
I see lock as a hardest position for us to get right in 2019. Whoever gets choosen in the Lock position will have a big impact on the rest of the pack.
The most conservative choice is probably Eisenhuth. On stats he can make the meters and do the defensive job. But isn't the most creative or explosive player.
E.T is a small lock that has gone out of fashion but can still do some ball playing and clean up, scrabble defence. If you play ET at lock it will bring the size of the pack down and you will need to make up for that with three or four big guys on the bench.
Twal could go well there. I'm not sure if he has played much lock before but it would make the pack much bigger. Then you could have a utility on the bench.
I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts.

A live call would be great. Who ex players did it on TigerCast, Was it Liam Fulton and John Skandalis?
I couldn't do it. The beeper would be in overdrive and you might need a couple of back up tellies if Ashley Klein is ref again.

Worst moment in Tigers history was definitely the Taylor - Farah saga and the publicity surrounding it suggesting we were a basket case. Was a pretty awful time for all involved with WestsTigers

Best - winning 05 of course.

Best moment? Beating the Dragons in 05. The grand final was great don't get me wrong, but we were written off for all money against a team that enjoyed a lot of success against as and we ambushed them.

Worst moment? The back to back 50 point hidings from Easts and St. George in '04 without scoring a single point in reply was a pretty low point.

Worst moment that stuck with me for years, something i thought about daily for a very long time. Lote, why! why drop in into Inu's arms! Not many things effect outside of friends/family but that really stuck with me. What was worst is that I was super confident going into that game. This was a warm up game to the real dance. I mean they had beaten them twice that year already.

Best memory. Everything other than ^^^^^^

Agree

BTW The other alleged NRL progam on radio is also a farce.

Stupid songs and non footy banter

Just caught the second one, in which you guys naturally and clearly gelled better, so a big thumbs up.

Worst moment was Simon Dwyer carrying a limp arm off the field. Not so much at the time, but in the aftermath.

Whilst another close worst moment is THAT scrum and THAT Anasta field goal coming on the back off and because of a best moment, which was seeing Simon serving it right up to JWH that preceded the horror to come. What a hit on one of the true enforcers of the modern game.

Also note your relative comments when talking on the front row position. Some extra meters would be nice, but as discussed, despite Twal looking the goods at most times, WT problem was almost always when Packerlino were not on the field and more so when Ben was off. Should be better this coming season with the replacement players looking an upgrade over a few good contract performances from Sue and a past it Grant.

Hi everyone,

Really appreciate the feedback heaps. Also don't be afraid to be critical or gives us suggestions (too long,too short, diff segments, etc) We are only just starting out (Or I am anyway!) - Its good fun and hope keep doing these weekly if interest is there.

Will be great once the season kicks off.

Just a reminder we are recording another one this weekend so if you have any questions or suggestions we can address it on Podcast 3. Sneak Peak we will be talking about Luke Brooks Re-Signing, Off Field Profit, plus a countdown Greatest/Worst Moments in our history plus more.

Cheers

Thanks Geo,

Glad people disagree with some stuff! What positional rating in vernal do you reckon might have been off the mark?

Interested in everyones views.
Not a great deal I rate Nofoaluma higher than you guys seem to ..I think he brings a hell of a lot and we missed him in that middle slump during a string of losses..

I also think the back row whilst we have too many the starters of Rowdy and Matterson offer a lot more than we've had preciously..that right edge has been a weak spot with the use of a number of just average 1st graders in Rochow MCK in recent times..

Lock is the interesting one and we do need more from our starting props..I would have Twal starting at Prop and either Packer or Matulino coming off the bench..which leaves going with Eisenhuth and/or Taylor at lock with Musgrove a smokey..

Oh and Hodgo is the No 1 Wests Tiger for me with an unsung mention to Ben Galea I would have in my Top 5...a few tackles he made in that GF were crucial that never seemed mentioned..
I probably in hindsight under rated our wingers at 5/10. NoFa has some strong attributes.

Plus I think Rowdy probably deserved more of a wrap from me for the way he attacked last year. He found a year doff pace and was very dangerous off short balls.

Ben Galea was a gun. Weapon in defence. Sort of thought of other guys like Halatau, Buckets and co but I admit i didn't think of Benny G at the time !!

Hi guys managed to listen to your player ratings but both times tried to listen beyond that got nowhere , enjoyed it

Joel seems on the mark but as usual Eddie has no idea (jokes Eddie ) , you made some good points and whether we agree or disagree it was good to hear others insights

As for venues , one has to be in Qld at some stage

Maybe Concord ....speak to a few players .....few officials ....assistant coaches ...few Forum nuffies , skies the limit lads

Subjects ....obviously our juniors coming through would be nice at some stage ....., perhaps our draw for 2019 .........retention possibly also

Very professional gents , well done
Cheers Happy, feel free to give me a serve I deserve it sometime with my rants on the forum !!

We are going to talk about some of the positives and negatives for the 2019 draw on the next podcast.

future Podcasts I'm sure we might look in depth at the juniors coming thought as we need to be across this given the squad looks a bit light for talent and strike power right now.
