Can’t believe how much time the media gives Elias.

Sixteen years of travesty: Wests Tigers and the miracle premiership that solved nothing

It’s not Balmain though. It’s Wests Tigers (Wests Ashfield).

That’s the thing. The identity issue is always there. It just gets hidden away and always returns.

Will be as many Souths fans as Wests Tigers.

Most people would agree Wests Tigers is the brand moving forward. Where they play, work and who they represent is the issue.

Yeah. You don’t sit back in a gun fight and hope you don’t get shot. You pull the trigger and keep shooting.

Apparently it’s for a rest from what I keep hearing but if your side has been so bad for so long and you start finding some form? AND you beat the Storm? You keep playing.

It doesn’t matter what the numbers are. Never heard so many mathematical excuses for a potential top 4 side and “contender” for the title. If you beat the Storm after a shocking few months, you play again.

Imagine if they played their strongest team and beat the Panthers. What a roll that would be. Three in a row including the Storm and Panthers.

You can’t call an audible and run with the momentum?

And what if they lose week 1?

That’s how it works right? You’re here too 😊

What if it’s 60 or 70?

Thinking the same thing. I’m sure he’s fully aware of the ramifications of everything he does right now.

Question is, did the team need a break physically or mentally?

Turbo was asked post-match against Canterbury if he’d be playing R25 and he said on the spot he was playing. I think most players want to be playing this time of year.

It’s a dangerous path when we start talking about “parking momentum”.

Great to hear your club is doing well.

'Horrible' state of grassroots league means only one club makes sense for NRL expansion

Mate what year was that from? Sounds like a gee up, tongue-in-cheek thing?

Just get it done and watch everything fall in place. Everything takes time.

Won’t work. Future is NRL appreciating clubs developing their own juniors and giving them cap relief for the players they create.

Sydney Mania.

WA should be there. I think they should already have a team again. Just as many juniors/seniors playing in WA than VIC. Many sports, worse off internationally than RL have World Cups so not sure what that jab is about.

Great stuff Adam
