    I have taken every Tigers win this year as a great result. All the éxperts' said we had the hardest first 6 rounds and yet the team played very well and had some remarkable wins.

    Last night we played one of the premiership favourites, big, mobile and talented pack of forwards.
    Credit to Penrith, they have turned Penrith Park into a graveyard once again for visiting teams.

    As for IC, well the Liddle play was dumb. Surely the 9 should start and if he can't get close to 80 minutes then go to plan B.
    IMO, Chee Kam should replace Lawrence,
    IMO, Aloiai should start,
    IMO, Benji needs a break but gee, I'd rather see 'grub'come back via the reserves.
    IMO, Nofa must go now,

    It was a frustrating game as we never looked likely, but we didn't lose our effort and were disciplined in defence.

    Thompson is good at fullback, but I would ger him on the wing to replace Nofo. He is such a reliable player, which is what we need there to sure up the defence.

    Fonua should also come back in the centres.

    I think we either promote Heleta to fullback or bring Kevvy back there. He was good for Fiji in that position.

    I'd bring Reynolds in at the 6. Have Marshall on the bench to cover both Reynolds and Liddle.

    I would also start Twal, Chee Kam and Liddle and put Eisenhuth and Matulino on the bench and drop Rochow. My bench would be Aloai, Eisenhuth, Matulino and Marshall. Taylor would shift out to the edge when needed due to the bench rotation.

    I’d honestly just put lolohea at fullback for the rest of the year and tell him to make it his or he won’t be needed beyond this year. Thompson can go wing

    Starting to get sick of nofo. Too rocks and diamonds, needs a serious kick up the ass

    The forgotten fullback, he's been moved to wing in the ISP to cater for Tui at fullback though. I wonder what IC is thinking regards to the pecking order of fullbacks.
    New
    And there's this as well.
    If Kev N is released to St Helens sooner rather than later that means I'd assume Fonua in or is Kelly from Manly coming soon?
    Nofa must go but does he come into the mix as a fullback?

    It’s nothing against Thompson...I just feel Lolo will offer some spark in attack and goal kicking of course

    Thompson can take nofos wing spot

    I’m hearing Rona is as good as a done deal coming here next week, not sure if Ivan would use him as a fullback or wing option?

    Chee Kam struggled in the centres last night defensively. I lost count how many times he was beaten. Though with Kev a late scratching we were limited to our options in that regard.

    My take was that we were too slow last night. Everything that Penrith did was at speed. Their players pushed up fast in attack and defence where our guys were happy to sit and wait. Even when Brooks took on the line there weren’t any support players pushing up hence he was going one out. But that is only one example.

    I think Eisenhuth is lazy, he is one who probably needs a stint in reserves especially with McQueen now ready for firsts and we really need another quality forward to help Packer and Matulino. Once these two guys come off the field it tends to fall apart a bit. Twal is young and learning but I don’t know about Sue. To me he really hasn’t come on in the way he should have by now.

    Matulino used to come off the bench for the Warriors. He always seemed to be better doing so. I tend to think this would help us.

    So then it is a matter of who do you start Twal? Aloai? Grant? Sue? Felise?

    I’d take barba or Holmes. I don’t reckon Cronulla will take back barba, and at the same I don’t think they wanna release Holmes

    The thing that did my head in was that he was missing tackles where they were running straight at him. I understand him getting skinned on a backline play but I can't see how you can forget basic technique just because you are standing on a different part of the field.

    Their strong forward pack really exposed the weaknesses in ours, particularly Rochow. Him getting driven back a few metres every hit up, coupled by a slow play the ball and their rushing defence just gave no one anytime to move and all of a sudden its the sixth tackle and we've gone 20 metres (if by some miracle we hadn't dropped the ball by then), and Brooks or Benji are putting a rushed kick from inside the 40 straight down someones throat.

    I can't blame our halves because they had nothing at all to work with.

    We need some pace...

    I have been saying this all year.. we must have the slowest backs in the comp unfortunately...

    I would be desperate enough to have Barba this year but think that he comes with some risk of off field dramas...

    Lol nah dui and during the season are obviously no-gos, but if he wasn’t hurting anyone then I doubt he’d bring off-field dramas like most people think. Bloke would be hungry for nrl again too
