currently it has to be Castro, hes such a bright fun chap who actually scares you rigid!
Big Dave lougheed for his awesome tackles but overall watching Jaco was astonishing the things he could do.....many will only dream of.

ohh so many greats have had the tigers jersey on! for me its the teams that i grew up with.

The A,B,C club, Steve Hackney, Underwoods, Deano, John Liley and Stuart Potter etc

But Adel Kardooni was a big fav of mine! he was awesome.
I have 'MIJ' and '9' on the back of my Jersey. I am normaly the one who is drunk by half time.

Mine-Backs-John Lilley
Forwards Martin Corry.

My wife's-Tim Stimpson-she's had a cuddle and squeeze of his thighs, and he is the definative Mr February in her eyes. :smt049

My daughter-Castro, Number one fan, has picture on wall and he has ruffled her hair when they met before the Sale game, she wants me to move out and him to move in :smt036

My son-Sam Vesty, saw him with the Belgrave Under 8's at Leicester Forest East in November and clapped when he scored after beating them, son very proud and shook hands :smt023
And on the 7th day, god rested, he stood patiently and awaited the green light to start the game from SKY!

Les Cusworth for all his improvisation in games. That under legs pass, ball on floor for Dodge to pick up, drop goals etc.

Brilliant in the ama era.

Also mention Kenney (Quality SH) with his beard!!

As mentioned before we have been lucky to see so many great players in the Tigers shirt. My memories go back to the late 70's to now.

Still remember the Dusty drop for the Midlands, youngster on terrace with my old man...what a night!!
A TIGER TILL I DIE!!
Supporting since 1977 and proud of it!!

I thought the Dusty drop goal was against the Australians not NZ ?


Fav player: Deano.

Best player in my time (since late 70s) Johnson
