    Looks like the Bronco's talent scouts have dropped the ball again.

    Wests Tigers have today announced the additions of forwards Rod Griffin and William McConnachie, as well as the re-signing of Jack Buchanan, as the Club continues to strengthen its playing roster for the 2016 season.

    REALLY like the Griffin signing with the 2 less interchanges. Didn't Brisbane give him a crack a few years ago? I know he never played First Grade though.

    ^think he was training with the Broncs in the pre-season but he didn't seem to get mentioned once the season kicked off. He'll be interesting to watch

    played against rod as a junior a few moons ago when he was in the penisula schoolboys side. His dad or uncle worked as a guard at a prison and as a early teen started working out with the inmates after school. Used to make animal noises while trying to break free of tacklers, was disturbing

    What position did you play Rhino and where did you grow up?  I'm a Townsville boy originally but moved to Perth 20 years ago.

    Even if Woods plays every game and wins the Dally M in a canter we are proper fucked.

    Assuming Taupau goes he is our only experienced quality forward. He can't win games by himself.

    Wests Tigers have today confirmed the Club’s coaching staff for the 2016 season.

    Following the 2015 season Wests Tigers conducted a thorough review of the Football Department with a number of new staff to join the Club.

    The Club will again be led by Head Coach Jason Taylor who joined Wests Tigers ahead of the 2015 season.

    Taylor will be joined by NRL Assistant Coaches David Kidwell and Craig Sandercock.

    Kidwell has been a part of the Wests Tigers coaching staff since the beginning of the 2014. Sandercock joins Wests Tigers from the Newcastle Knights, where he was an NRL Assistant Coach. Between 2012 and 2014 Sandercock was Head Coach of Hull KR in the Super League and for the two years before heading to England was on the coaching staff of Newcastle.

    Wests Tigers’ Physical Performance Department will be headed up by Marcus Kain who is entering his second season at the Club. Kain will be joined by new Strength and Conditioning Coach Chris Dorman who has spent the last five years as the Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach at the Fremantle Dockers.

    Also joining the Club is Alex Kertesz who will take on the role of Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach, Kertesz joins Wests Tigers having been a part of the NSW Waratahs staff since 2012.

    Blake McLean will continue to head up the Club’s Sports Science program.

    Joining Wests Tigers as new Holden Cup Head Coach is Willie Peters.

    Most recently Peters has been SG Ball Coach for the South Sydney Rabbitohs and has a professional playing career of over 140 games.

    Paul Stringer will take on the Head Coaching role of Wests Tigers’ NSW Cup side, having been Holden Cup Assistant Coach in 2014.

    Before embarking on a coaching career Stringer player over 140 NRL games.


    Wait wait wait.

    So the only coach to avoid the chop (other than JT), is the one who goes on an end of season trip to Bali with the one player JT wants to get rid of. JT hasn't heard the Walker brothers rumour yet Excited

    I'd love to see the Walker's get an NRL gig. They'd suit our team as well I think, but theres gotta be a point where we stop sacking coaches.

    So does that mean Moussa got the chop or is his position just not listed?  Hopefully not, after that horriffic injury run between 2012-2104, at least this year we pretty much kept the team on the park.

    We have to stop paying players to play against us before we can resume our practice of paying coaches not to coach us

    That picture involves natural light, toilet paper and a fucking bench. Not to mention an actual physical toilet - as opposed to just a slight indent in the ground against the wall.


    Absolute luxury compared to the North end toilets at Leichhardt

    Yeah with so many short guys in your side the Tigers would excel at short kick offs.

    Farah would still have to go though because he is old and slow as fuck and never runs the ball unlike Parcell.

    He might actually be allowed to run the ball with a decent coach.
