We have a lot of talent. It seems we lack willing workers though

Yeah , he could give the same motivational speeches he gave the Magpies when he coached them to about half a dozen wins in two years. :crazy
To be fair Tommy's sides never lacked heart, just talent
Maybe that's our problem too Smeg - but we just haven't realised it yet.
The team in 2011 had a heartbeat We all saw that

Get Tommy, Les Boyd and Roy Masters in the dressing room before the game.
Speak to each player individually and encourage them to go and rip the bunnies apart.

its a heritage game, so wind the years back and have the traditional softening up period/play brutual.

Yeah Boydie could get someone to go out and hit a bloke with an elbow and while he's down he could eye gouge him

A couple of questions on that 1/ how the bloody hell would they grade that :lol: Grade 25 bringing the game into disrepute charge

2/ How many years would you spend out of the game

Seriously though , to you younger fellas who never saw Les Boyd play when he focussed totally on football he was easily the best 2nd rower running around with Rod Reddy

from age of 12, (1976) I watched Les Boyd play with west magpies, and come up thru the ranks, attended many games at Lidcombe Oval.
tend to agree, when he focussed he was very damaging to opposition.

point I'm trying to get across have him there so he will encourage players to bring out their inner aggression.

Wayne Bennett couldn't have done any better with that side. Tommy went ok, won an Origin series and got the Maggies into the finals in 96

I like what Tommy had to say and at the end of the day, for me, he is reinforcing the message to the team of playing with pride, guts and determiination (attitude). We need a champion team at the moment not a team of people who think they are champions.

Wouldn't it be great to be at the SFS this sunday arvo and watch our forwards totally put in and take the bunnies completely by surprise, restore pride in the jersey, confidence in the fans and uplift the club. See Lawrence dominate Inglis when he tries to break through.

Come on Wests Tigers LIFT no better way to do it than to beat the bunnies in a HERITAGE game.

Yeah but Lincoln played in the back-row. Anyway i think their problems stemmed deeper then Lincoln getting picked. Super League killed them, and left them with a group of guys, who a lot would struggle to get a game in group 6

interestingly though, Shane Perry who played a bit of FG, but was mainly a reserve grader, went on to play halfback in Brisbane's 2006 premiership side

Yeah this is exactly what we need damo,

A coach who's inspirational talks involve him telling the lads about the time he did the sneaky dirty with his missus between the goalposts on a moonlit orana park night.... oh gawd... MY EYES.... :bawling

He's a class act all the way!

I can understand his frustration towards the current squad, no doubt about it, however lets not get too carried away though.... :mrgreen:

Well said Tommy! about time someone came out and gave the club some home truths! Hope he is in the dressing room before the game ripping into them also!

By the way, is Benny Elias no longer the go to man for a comment to the media?
