    We're runaway favourites which never works in our favour. That Jerome kid played real well when he had his chance last year, just in time for him to have a break out game.

    What, they've all signed with the Roosters?

    That's a blow

    The new stadium??

    Fair point though. Another reason wouldve been players playing for contracts but lately it doesnt seem that way.

    We have to start well for once. If we allow the Panthers to roll up the middle we are inviting trouble.

    We need to smash their forwards early and often.

    I tipped the Panthers. If it one thing the battle of the west has in common its both teams are let downs.

    I hope our line speed in defense has been sorted, we are way to slow and never get in their faces. Or are we being coached like that to negate penalties?

    We brought a specialist coach in the preseason to work on our line speed and other things. I don’t think this Penry Herenara has done a good job

    Just saw the pre game chat to that match for the first time

    Commentators were saying Tigers (up to that point) had the third best defence in the league , coached by a strict disciplinarian . They were saying it was gonna be a close one , cause of those reasons , gonna be a great game

    That game was 0-0 first 10-12 min, then we just exploded

    Sure was a great game

    We exploded all right. They're still looking for the remainder of the wreckage.
