    He was great. Benji has been the dominant playmaker/game manager but Brooks has done everything right. His kicking game has been great, his defence has been great and he won us the game with a great run that showed determination and heart.

    I'm so proud of him. He has always been likable. We need him to play to his potential which really means getting rid of the crap plays and he has done that so far.

    One of the things I loved about 2005 was how so many other teams supporters got on board with our run. It was a genuine feel good Premiership. Obviously not saying 2005 is going to happen this year, however seeing threads like this by opposition supporters and the game thread for the storm make the wins even more satisfying.

    After the shit you guys went through last year its nice to see some light at the end of the tunnel. Apart from Fudge you have a pretty likeable team. Ivan is quality, I will always be grateful for what he did at Penrith. He made mistakes with us, but I can see already in the time he has been at the Tigers he has learned from them. I think by the end of the year Brooks will finally look like the player everyone hoped he would be, then you wont need Nathan. :)

    And how good is it to see the big 3 derping it up elsewhere.

    Ivan is the only coach to get the Warriors performing consistently as well.

    There's something there, which makes his exit from Penrith all the more baffling. I'd wager Gus tried to impose himself on the coaching team and Ivan told him to go get f**ked.

    Id say that is not too far from the mark.

    Great to see you guys playing well, but as a dragons supporter I have to admit I wasn't onboard with the 2005 run until the GF.

    Always wish you guys well, but not against us :)

    Wish I could congratulate another win this week. Horrible way to lose.

    Instead I'll congratulate the tigers' effort and attitude. If they maintain this, the execution will follow.

    Ivan could coach a churchgoer to successfully knock over a bank.

    Shits me to have to bump this thread today, but congrats anyway.

    Hope this kickstarts a run for you blokes where you take the broncos' place in the eight.

    I love your civil support for our team and the way we are trying to play.
    I don't, however, know why you would pretend to be a saints fan.
    Saints fans are the WORST. One-eyed, obnoxious arrogant, pompous asses.
    You mate, are not one of those.

    Way too much love between saints and tigers fans lately. Between 2005-2012 we hated each other mercilessly.

    Ha. I'm a proud dragon for better or worse. And I'm pretty sure I've been called every name on your list.

    But I have a loose family connection to your club, and I've always had a soft spot for you guys.

    So a very sincere good luck to your team. From a very one eyed dragon.

    Dragons are our true arch-nemisis.

    We got one on them in 2005 to end up winning the GF, they did the same to us in 2010.

    Seeing a Dragons v Tigers grand final within the next 5 years would be a dream come true
