    Yet he took the Warriors to only their second ever grand final in 2011 and this is a squad featuring Brett Seymour, Joel Moon in the centres, Bill Tupou on the wing and Aaron Heremaia as our starting hooker.

    He has the credentials over any other options out there. Would you rather Matt Elliot come back to the coaching merry-go-round?

    If Cleary does get the gig, it could be interesting to see if he brings in Lewi Brown to finish his career back at Wests.

    Thinking of putting my resume in actually. Will show my coaching performance over the last 3 years, even if fantasy.

    I've also never lost a game as a first grade coach.

    TBH i know sweet fuck all about the coaches and their pedigree. Just looking at stats

    Wallace out - Hess in (via McGuire)

    Is this trade worth it considering Hess will only be starting 1 more game in reality. Or will Hess continue to outscore Wallace even from the bench. I feel the cash gains of Hess due to his very low b/e of 9 will be greater than the cash gains of Wallace whose minutes have probably been inflated due to injuries.

    you get 64 trades a year i swear

    I think we should as a forum community put TBO forward to be the coach. I mean if the Tigers want to win. Trophy

    Any Canberra fans......what's the go with Bateman? 29 minutes, starting lock. Is that likely to be his future now with Whitehead back in the 2R?

    Having a coach out on the field physically shifting the goalposts every time the opposition is kicking for goal would certainly be a bold but no doubt effective strategy.

    I feel for ET owners. I sold him as I think he'll only get 60 mins & all he does is tackle but yesterdays game he would of definitely played 80 mins with Sue & Lawrence retiring with head knocks & alas ET doesn't play. Same goes for the Norman owners as we all know what a large score he would of got had it not been for injury although I do own him in sc.

    I wanted to get Bateman last week but I read on a Raiders forum that Croker would be back this week & figured he'd be struggling for minutes with Soliola moving back to the middle. Didn't he get a head knock or some injury after about 20 mins. I saw him getting treated on the field & then he struggled to get back into the defensive line. I saw him do a hit up after that & make a couple of tackles so I assumed he was sweet. So if he only played 29 mins he mustn't of come back on so maybe he either failed a head test or picked up some injury & couldn't return.

    He was on my hit list at the start of the year, dodged a bullet at this stage.

    So JT/tigers board force Farah out of the club and then JT gets sacked? 

    Makes no sense

    Cheers SI, I meant to check the stats archive, but my only real experience with Slater was back on Fox Sports fantasy during his prime when Slater and Hayne were gun of guns.

    Potentially starting this season with RTS, Slater and Hayne would've been quite the nostalgia trip.

    Any Surgess owners like me noticed that he starts at lock then goes off for a breather & then his second stint on the field he seems to be playing as a prop. The last couple of weeks when he has come back on he seems to be taking the first hit up of the sets quite a lot. I actually like this because to me fantasy wise he scores better in the prop role.

    Maybe Farah can bugger off back to the Tigers because he's phucking with the run metres of Surgess. Farah is so greedy that he just doesn't give the ball to anyone & goes for himself.

    Haha, yeah. He was an absolute gun DT wise back in the day, and obviously was great in 2014 as well. Posters saying he has never been that good Fantasy wise are either bluffing people from trading him or making assumptions when facts are available.

    Slater may well get injured 5 minutes into next game, or he may well go on to average 40 plus and play every game. No-one knows that, what is fact is he has been a gun previously and a little over 200k is a decent trade with the amount of nuffies in the position.
