Should wait till next years’ free agency imo. Lakers would have to give up either Ball or Ingram and future first round picks to secure Kawhi. Not worth it when there’s the possibility that he’ll only stay for the one season.

It’s time to pull the trigger on Kawhi, Los Angeles

Thanks for the reply, Totally agree that the Sydney sides with a suburban ground should play majority of their home games there. No atmosphere when teams play at Homebush or SFS with a crowd of 10,000. 10,000 at the suburban grounds generates a great atmosphere and for me personally love watching the Tigers play at Leichhardt Oval. The new Parramatta stadium should be used for the bigger clashes in Sydney when they anticipate that they will have a crowd of 20,000+.

The return of a Tigers legend

Changed it up now, but I was just automatically giving the side the two points from this weeks bye week so they’re technically two wins behind the broncos but Broncos have a game in hand, confusing thing about allocating points for a bye

Yea, I wrote it before last nights game and Crichton is a monster. Have been reaping the rewards of picking him up in NRL fantasy earlier in the season. Only problem with Nofoaluma is that his defence is an issue, not necessarily his tackling ability but his positioning. Tigers concede too many tries down that right edge defensively. Centre’s was tough as I don’t believe there are any centres that consistently perform, I guess that’s just the nature of the position. Gutho would be the perfect bench utility player. Bring him in after 20 mins and he’ll cause havoc.

Walker was selected a five-eighth so his performances in any other position were irrelevant, same with Moylan. If you include matches they played in other positions it doesn’t truely reflect how they placed in a specific position.

Cheers, appreciate it 🙂

I was in awe when I heard that the Tigers had reportedly offered him $1 million a year contract. Thankfully, they pulled that offer of the table. I believe that the Eels have certainly paid overs for him and I think that his defence partly comes down to his technique but in this day and age with these big (100kg+) mobile forwards, he is just too small to be able to defend these guys. I do know that defence is about technique but it does help to have some size behind you. So if I was Brad Arthur I wouldn’t worry about developing his attacking skills over the pre season but getting him in the gym to put on a few kilograms and to make him partake in countless defensive drills.

The Parramatta Eels' halves dilemma

Agree with the fact that he won’t be playing for Wenty, but apparently Norman and Moses in the halves and Gutherson will move into the centres for Auva’a and French will stay at fullback

The Parramatta Eels' halves dilemma

In the current form he’s in he isn’t a first grade half. However, if he can fix his defence and play more consistently then I believe that he can be a good first grade half.

The Parramatta Eels' halves dilemma

As a Tigers supporter, I guess I’m just hoping that this season he can consistently perform like he did at the back end of last season. But since his form has been more down than up this season and his defence being a consistent problem for us, I was glad to see him leave the club. Would love to see him turn into the player he can be at the Eels though.

That seems to be the direction that they are going to go in
