Apart from Bateman, Wells and thompstone all other starting players are the ones we need to look at getting rid of. They offer nothing to the team and are no way near the standard we need.
People rate Thacker, Evans ect... they are no where near 1st team standard
Come on you tigers!

"Get off the line, get off the line" being shouted from the sideline tells you all you need to know....

Can't keep 14 out, never mind 15

I would like to see our stats in terms of red zone conversion this season - I would hazard a guess it’s the lowest in the AP.

First half in a word - shambolic.

Tigers are a shambles but this ref is another one from the box of clowns, missing knock ons, forwards passes, offsides!!!

Just enough time to butcher another one - heading towards the line and the back 3 of the maul sheer off - unbelievable.

Would be amazed if there was a sacking tomorrow, otherwise MOC would have picked the likes of Toomua.

Why is Geordie Murphy smiling every time he's picked up on camera? What the hell has anyone got to smile about?!

get rid of them all and why not bring back someone with the dynamism of Richard Cockerill who may infuse the team with the ability to think on their feet and improvise?
You mean like he got them doing the previous two seasons? /s
You really think we're no worse than we were two seasons back? Even in the depths of the injury disaster we could still push over tries from 5m. Even in the depths of the injury disaster we weren't giving up 30 or 40 points every week. Even in the depths of the injury crisis, given our territory this evening, we'd still be in this game. We'll never know what RC would have been able to do with this squad but I'm hard pushed to imagine him not doing a damn sight better than scraping a win at home to the Not Nots and getting flattened week in week out against established top flight opposition!
No, not that one!

Remember, whatever you do to the smallest of the backs you do to his prop, and you can't avoid the rucks and mauls forever...

Absolute :censored: shambles.

I am almost lost for the words to describe what many loyal Tigers fans are watching.

No longer interested in anything that O'Connor has to say. He should be sacked without delay so the whole season doesn't end up in the dunny.

where did i say that?
Cockers was hardly the leader of improvisation play or getting players to think on their feet, we just had players that could do that themselves.
