    good win from newie.
    turning point was the call where skds caught it in the ingoal and the refs said play on
    that yates hit too was a pearler and they called it high.
    few calls both ways tho for sure

    tigers really struggle scoring from close range hey?

    Tigers really struggle to score points unless it's length of field or broken play.

    The turning point was Godinet being penalised for holding his ground when the kreepy krawly was moving off it's mark.
    And how did the refs let Pearce be subbed ? Since when is a bicep a HIA ? Knights were out of interchanges and cheated the system.

    But the reffing was bad both ways.

    Knights played well, we will learn from that....

    Also Nofo might need a long stint in reserves, his defence was woeful

    Big game this week. Touched Eels up last time they met so if they are serious Top 8 contenders should win this one again.

    Can only hope the Eels big form reversal wasn't a flash in the pan.

    Couple of ways looking at it, have the eels turned the corner? Or were Manly that fkn woeful with all that's been going on.

    Should be a good game

    Manly were made woeful by a team that played a little closer to their best but still are some way off it. When you are O and six youve got a lot more mental baggage than a team that just dropped a guy for being a dick and had a Few players go to a strip club.

    Will be a good game and a good measure of where both are at. If we get closer than last game it's a positive sign.

    2 pt loss to a 19 man Eels side was extremely disappointing yesterday.

    Eels must of kissed the dicks of the footy gods before the game and I see nothing to suggest they will make the finals without further help from the 2 supposedly neutral guys in the middle. That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it

    Gold, or maybe Tigers are just March/April legends. We were way off our best yesterday, still plenty of improvement in us and heading the right way, can the same be said about the Tigers?

    I think once we get Packer, ET and Twal back, we will be back on track

    Also Reynolds off the bench will add more value than Godinet

    Ouch! Not looking good Tigers, we are going backwards fast and the first 5 weeks are starting to look like a fluke. No excuses after last night as we were just terrible in every aspect. Only our scramble defense saved us from getting an absolute hammering. Good luck sorting this out Ivan.

    Back at Leichhardt and should be pumped for this, packer returns and will add the mongrel to the forward pack.

    Cowboys played good against a depleted Penrith side but the Cows have had a few off field dramas to deal with.

    Packer is a big in, we've missed him more than I thought we would.

    LOL. It sounds stupid but "kinda". The whole in the bag was a bit OTT, but Leichhardt, Packer back, a different culture, I think they would be hurting more than in the past. As long as old Benji shows up not Benji of old, it wouldn't surprise me if we get up.

    I'm not sure Thurston has ever won at Leichhardt.

    Tigers have been poor last few weeks. Hopefully Packer's return helps things get back to the first few weeks

    Despite chalking up over 300 games in his 17-year-career at first the Bulldogs then Cowboys, the 35-year-old has never beaten Wests Tigers when the game has been played in Sydney.

    Not at ANZ Stadium, where he is winless in three matches (including the 2005 Grand Final).

    Not at Campbelltown Sports Stadium, where he is also winless in three attempts, having missed the Cowboys hard-fought win at the venue last year in Round 25 with injury.

    Not even at Sydney Showground, when Thurston's 2003 Bulldogs surrendered a half-time lead to lose 20-14.

    And not at Leichhardt Oval, either, having been defeated in all six of his games at the venue.

    tigers were paying $8 to win that game in 2003, if live betting was a thing back then, it would be like $15 at half time


    i was at that game with a tiger fan, who is a pretty lippy type of guy, that was during a period where we were having a fair bit of crowd issues. i was pretty concerned with how much he was giving it to some of Lebanese supporters, but happy to report, he is still alive.
