Interesting to read that Littlejohn is 95kgs. I wonder if he's ever been encouraged to move to hooker.
I like the side. Hopefully rankin stays on the wing.

Agree with your comments, however If Thurston plays this week we lose by 30.If he doesn't I still think we lose by 12.That forward pack will eat us alive.Hope I'm wrong but I doubt it.After losing last week the Cowboys will be primed.
That team is more than just Thurston... they can strike all over the park.


Agreed.However it was evident the other night against the storm that with JT the cowboys win.Their options close to the line were poor to say the least.

And a good showing will be a win in itself.As it will be a continuing sign that next year looks rosy.Providing we can keep ET.

I'm looking forward to see JLJ in action again. This is winable in front of a big LO crowd.

Haha ... I hope you're right .... But I never "expect" when it comes to Wests Tigers ... Just sets you up to be disappointed. The rain and the Leichhardt factor might even it up a bit plus no Thurston. But I still think they will be too strong.

Being serious we can win this game. If we fire and play positive footy we can win every game we play. This will be tough for us though. I think us losing Robbie and Brooks is worse than the Cowboys losing Thurston.

We will need a lot going our way to win .... Ball control is an absolute necessity and the kicking game needs to be spot on. Goal kicking is a worry ... We really need to land those easy ones from in front. Last passes will also need to stick, a fair go from the man in the middle and a bit of luck never goes astray. If all that goes our way, we could make it interesting !

As bad as our goal kicking is supposed to be, we're yet to lose game because of it.

I bet we get Badger.
Paul Green had a fair bit to say about the refs last week....I hope they dont try to square the ledger with them against us.

Yes, this is a good test on so many levels. Not the end of the season if they lose.

The hooker thing is a farce, and Rankin :bash , JT sure is pig headed.

In your humble opinion!!!

Surely if there was "one cook too many in the kitchen" when Brooks was in we are short a cook now with Brooks out.
