Re: Wests Tigers consider signing Joey Leilua from Canberra Raiders

The crucial part of info that we are missing here as a fan base is BJs recovery from a very serious injury last year. No one knows that better than our S+C team - that could be playing a big part in this. Knees in the back in the in-goal and not passing to Raps in the GF were a bigger part i'm tipp...

Yeah I agree - unless George Williams really fires.

Re: Wests Tigers consider signing Joey Leilua from Canberra Raiders

I know they said he was training with the rehab group last week but it’s possible he is just staying away until this is sorted.

Not a fan of this but what can you do :(

Sticky is RUTHLESS. Eddy Lee drops a pass, costs them a spot in a GF....Gooooone
BJ doesn’t pass in a GF *maybe* costing them a premiership......Goooooone.

Re: Ex Raiders... where are they now?

FWIW, I think he'll absolutely thrive with the captaincy and goal kicking. I think his biggest struggle at the Raiders was fitting in with Hodgson and relinquishing his goal kicking to Toots. Amongst other things but yes I agree. People underestimate the Hodgson factor. As a halfback who usually ha...

Re: Expectations for George Williams

I think he definitely gives us the attacking spark we need.

With GWilly he is instinctive from what I’...

Re: NRL announces rule changes for scrums, trainers, 20/40 kick, endorses challenge system

I think the 20/40 rule could work in our favour. Hodgo isn't too bad with kicking them. No changes to the 1:1 strip rule, which is good to see I suspect they will be quite difficult to kick. Usually if you are pinned you're coming off your line. 40/20's as they stand tend to come off the back of qu...

Re: Curtis Scott signs with Canberra Raiders to end 2023

Scott's not being signed to play 14 and in his last game against the roosters Melbourne pushed Chambers to the wing for him so he's not playing badly. For 2020 I think i...

Can Scott play on the right wing for a season? Either way, the odds of Leilua still being with us by the end of next season are rapidly diminishing. The club clearly won't stand in his way if his manager finds a multi-year deal elsewhere. At his current dollar value yes, I agree. But if reality bit...

Williams needs to be re-signed. He’s the best back up half in the NRL. Surely if Sezer gets an offer from the Broncos or Bulldogs, he takes it even if it is a little less money. His value will drop dramatically if he spends the whole season at Mounties. He’s signed for Huddersfield as above apparen...
