I am just gunna dance around for a minute......love them dudes.
That naked player would give the mrs a mongrel....!
Scuba guys at shark park in a down pour was cool, you know it.
2020 team, starts with the half, hooker maybe an issue.
We signed a kid named Mavoni Tuifa ( spelling ?)
He is a wrecking ball.
A big, angry mother fxxxer.
I think he's only on a lower grade contract, but look him up. He's a freakin beast.
don't know how long he's signed for, but extend him, and if possible, give him a run in firsts after we extend him.
And the best thing ? . . . pretty sure we signed him from Parra.
Good advice, footage of him on the net.
A young agile Uber-giant, hes smashing into and making yardage against 3 or 4 huge opponents. Offload and passing. He’d be ideal at the back end of a game taking out tired front rowers.

Wests Tigers can provide the following injury update as the start of the 2020 season approaches, with less than a month until the first games of the year with the NRL Perth Nines.
With two full weeks of training completed following the New Year break, Wests Tigers have been boosted by the successful returns of Alex Twal (groin), Matt Eisenhuth (groin) and Josh Aloiai (hand) to full-team training.
The likes of Elijah Taylor (knee), Michael Chee Kam (shoulder) and David Nofoaluma (shoulder) are also in full team training after minor injuries or surgeries completed during the off-season break.
Russell Packer (foot) is also progressing well as he increases his running load and responds well on-field as a result.
Young hooker Jacob Liddle (knee) continues to make very positive progress with his strength training and movement drills. The 23-year-old is on track to begin the running phase of his rehabilitation process around Round 1.
Currently training with the extended NRL squad, train-and-trialist Brad Abbey (knee) is approaching the final stages of his rehabilitation from an ACL injury suffered last season with another club. Abbey is expected to return to skills training on-field in the next few weeks before the regular season commences.
Wests Tigers players will continue to ramp up preparations in the next few weeks before entering the start of competitive games. The 2020 NRL Perth Nines is first up on the calendar with games on February 14-15, before Wests Tigers take on the Penrith Panthers (February 22) and New Zealand Warriors (March 1) in NRL trials.
The club's first NRL game of the season will then take place two weeks later with a clash against the St. George-Illawarra Dragons in Wollongong on March 15.
With the current squad (new players not mentioned) who do we lose next year, through end of contract? It should free up some cash if needed.
I have placed who I thought they were in RED are there others.
Wouldn't be surprised if Reynolds, Mbye or Packer end up leaving for whatever reason.
Are these 3 all here next year as well ? I reckon Mbye can play so I'm not really worried about him. The other two don't appear to be first grade level at this point.
I think that all three have at least 2 years left?
Both Reynolds and Packer had a horror run of injuries, plus some other issues to deal with, so I am holding back until they are able to contribute, to see what they have got.
However, it's possible Reynolds may not play anyway.
It'd be great if they both came good but we really need those inflated contracts off our books. You'd think over the next couple of years we will have to upgrade some juniors.
Reynolds is surplus to needs. Packer is not currently first grade standard. Mbye is a good player but he is being massively overpaid.
If Packer gets his 2018 form then fantastic. If Mbye's salary isn't f**king up the salary cap then great. I honestly don't see where Reynolds fits in our plans, even when fully fit.
If he comes good, then he maybe required to cover Benji, this season and next?

That is my team at the moment. It looks a lot better than last year to me. I reckon our prop rotation is going to be beast mode when we get Stefano.
Personally not 100% sold on Doueihi as a fullback but will see how he goes.
Think your team is fairly spot on however I’m gunna make a prediction that fan fav Corey Thompson will start the year in nsw Cup. All reports are that Jennings is an absolute stand out at pre season and I don’t maguire will have 2 short wingers.
Considering how strong our middle third options are I’ll be fairly surprised if Eisnhuth gets a spot, think Packer will play a pretty big part this year.
We’re looking good though, that’s a top 8 side for mine.
They've actually done it, they have got us excited with expectations of grandeur, so here we go again.
I'm thinking top 6 as we were close last year and we seemed to have improved across the park.
