Squad 2022

From the Sydney Morning Herald article on papali'i last night:

Wests Tigers are still in the market for an “experienced centre or back-rower who can play centre” for 2022.

Lol.

Aka a “shock troop” utility.

Not the easiest of assignments.

I was reading that Doogie is the fourth best 5/8th in the comp. He must be close.

Seems to me “attitude and application” is becoming an essential criterion for r&r.

Talent and performance are other measures.

So jtj is said to have the 3 of the 4. Depressing for him. Do all that work and fail at the business end.

He’d be on his way if we didn’t like him.

Reviewing the Scott matter, it seems Tim rang him and my bet is that he disclosed his stalking charge to the supreme commander and that was it.

So there’s an alleged issue there in application to task to being a player with no current baggage.

There was a rumour he has a good defence but we will see. I hope so anyway.

Seeing as we're talking to the Raiders so much, maybe we could ask them if Jack Wighton wants to give up his player options and head up the Hume at play in the centres for us.

Hope your right Jim.

After a shite start that would make this offseason buying mission close to a success.

The same thing happened last year. I'm a bit concerned by Thompson and Cotric but they'd improve us. I just worry about cost vs output.

I think they have decided to bypass that rule coz the small number refusing is a “minimal risk” according to Pete v
Fair enough, just don’t want to get lumbered with him and have Qld or Vic tell us they can’t enter the state. If they bypass the rule he adds something to our pack, that’s for sure.

If our team turn it around and make the 8 that would be some kind of achievement, the gutless, inept display of football shown from the WT this season was embarrassing,I would go as far as saying that the 2021 squad were the most woeful,under performing team In our history and thats saying something considering some of our past teams.
