    RCG has been horrendous tonight, Freddy is a visionary.

    :laugh: So true

    Luke Brooks writing the instruction manual on how to turn a 12-6 lead with 3 minutes left to go in the half into a 12-16 deficit.
  5. AVA T Delonge

    Actually brain dead. Too busy in his rivalry with Moses (has tried to work him over in every tackle he's made) to actually play for the team.

    Remarkable they're persisting with Brooks now Douihi is bac
  7. morgieb MC Burridge

    So Tim Sheens to coach Wests again in 2023.

    ayyyyyyy lmao
  8. Magic AJ Parker

    Makes you wonder if that was his plan all along…

    I see Hastings finds himself at lock this week to continue to accomodate Brooks.
  9. Sultan Pepper HG Emm

    Hahahaha fuck me
  10. AVA T Delonge

    In the post-game last week Benji said that his preference would be to move Hastings to lock and keep Brooks in the side, and Benji has now also been hired as part of the coaching staff. Seems like they were planning to trot out that line up sooner rather than later.

    It's amazing how Tigers keep finding ways to make the joint worse.

    I'm wondering if it's their way of trying to copy the set up with Yeo at Penrith. Make their forwards a little more effective around the middle while taking a bit of pressure off Brooks.

    Stupid though as I reckon

    Has potential to be a more than adequate spine once api arrives. Surely give them the rest of this year to get ready for Koroisau next year.
  13. AVA T Delonge

    Yeah I'd say that's the logic behind it. Definitely stupid though, especially with Koroisau coming. I have a suspicion that they are trying to get Brooks some game time hoping he'll look half decent to try and palm him off to a team if they come sniffing. That or they are just continuing the Brooks wankfest they have and surely he will come good on his own any day now

    Am I remembering right that Sheens kinda fucked the Tigers over for a while when they last booted him from coaching?
  15. Paddy P Orr

    Obstruction call against Taumalolo was bullshit.
  16. Magic AJ Parker

    Yeh it’s rubbish, if as a defender you have gone past the ball then you don’t have any right to claim obstruction as you’re trying to get back to the ball carrier. Especially not against a player who is running in support.

    Titans have baited me so many times this year on the punt but surely the betting markets are underestimating the players out for the Broncos to price the Titans @ $3.10
  18. Magic AJ Parker

    Yeh they are, when Hastings was originally signed there was a lot of talk that they had signed him as a lock forward. I'm guessing Sheens probably had a big say in that signing.

    I just think it's not even a chance of succeeding because his running game is almost non-existent. May have worked in the Vlandysball of yester year but small middles who are having some success this year like Walker and Watson are primarily doing it on the back of their running games, any ability to ball play comes second.
  19. Magic AJ Parker

    Speaking of small loose forwards with a bit of acceleration, I thought Erin Clark was brilliant tonight. Outside of him and Brimson there really isn't much to get excited about at the Titans.

    Penrith will probably be 8 points clear by round's end. Thats ridiculous with 7 rounds to go.
