2011 has started.

Post by king sirro » Sun 29 May, 2011 5:53 pm

The Wests Tigers have brought the 2011 season to life with their gutsy yet disapointing effort against Saints.

We proved today that with the right attitude, the right team selection, and rep players back from injury, we are the team to beat. Throw in the VERY IMPORTANT factor of getting over our usual mid season "rumours", and we will finish the season stronger than anyone.

I said it in early in the season that we will start slow but finish strong and after today, i think if the right decisions are made, we will deliver.

Fulton was totally dominated and must go unless he's the utility on the bench. And Mitch Brown must never ever play centre again, his defence was sad to watch. Lui actually covered for him thats how bad his defence was.

Cant wait for next week.

Agree mate, as long as we can stay around the bottom of the 8 until we get some stars back we should make a run in the finals.

Mate, im not rapping Moltzen. Its clear he has all the skills for fullback but not the head for it. But the simple fact is, Brown cost us 2 tries from terrible defence. And he never looked comfortable at all today. Im a fan of Mitch, i called for us to sign him 2 years before we actually did, but a centre he is not and he was made to look a fool today.

The Moltzen bashing has gotten ridiculous. Seriously guys go and have a cold shower and rewatch the game.

And Sirro your right - the game showed a couple of things:-

1. We have the ability especially with more troops on board.
2. Farah is a gun but he comes up with too many poor options and that has to stop if we are any chance.
3. Benji is a weapon.
4. Lui isn't offering much.
5. Our team played with heart and aggression. Heighno & Fifita really put in.

x 2 .. remember that was the top 17 for the dragons and granted they had players backing from soo 4 days ago, but its not as if they all played 80 mins either ! the dragons are definately beatable and are no certs for this competition. a similar injury list to the dragons that has plagued the tigers would see them go down the table in a hurry

Mate Farah set up most of our play today. Without him we wouldnt have got close. You claim that people bash Moltzen...you bash Robbie even though he has been one of our best over the past three weeks when most have been aweful.

Timmy has good speed and is starting to back up play well. However, a good fullback would have stopped the Merrin and Gasnier tries today. His positioning was spot on for both, he got there in time and ... didnt do enough.

I am really surprised that Soward didnt test him with his bombs.

I agree with AHX, next time we play them they will be 30% improved on todays effort.....will we? I'd like to think so but really they were ripe for the plucking today and did us in a canter.

I pretty much agree with that Sirro. When the troops are back and with that attitude we are still a big chance. Easy to focus on the negatives when all that effort is un-done by school boy errrors but Brown was ordinary today as was one of my favourites Fulton - the others played strong.

remember we had mckinnon, lawrence, tuqiri, galloway, ellis, payten all out injured. and we only lost by 6 against the team coming first at their home ground.

I'm knocking Farah because in the critical moments he is making big mistakes. That will kill us in the big games when it is tight.

As for Moltzen you seem to have actually watched his game today because your criticism is really clutching at straws. I doubt many fullbacks stop those tries. Merrin was missed via Fulton and Gasnier was missed by a lot more players than Moltzen. Mckinnon would have had no chance in stopping either try.

Moltzen has to in the run on team in a critical position because he is a gun. Lui is doing himself no favours but i'd like to see him get back into form because then we have a gun 1,6,7, & 9. What I would like to see happen though doesn't really matter - if Lui keeps his poor form up we need to put Moltzen at 7.

Yes and we had 6 of our best players out with injury. There is a huge difference between players backing up and players not being there altogether!

with Ellis and tiquiri back next week, we can lose schirnack and utai. utai was awful in defence today and schirnack is not first grade quality. Fulton to be put on notice as Murdoch is getting fitter and better with every match.

have said this in another thread, you beat the dragons with your defence. it was 4 poor reads in defence that cost us the game. we scored enough points.
