  1. Im a Tigers man – but jeez its a tough ask facing Melbourne in Melbourne for the first game.
    Im hearing the melbourne player Israel Falou is going to be a boom rookie. Interested to see how Benji goes this year.

  2. i am quietly confident graham. im a wests supporter as well. i really think with benji back the tigers will be sharp and creative. he lifts the players around him well. the other thing is – as the article says – no pressure on us this year!

  3. does anyone know which referee is controlling the Wests / Melbourne Match? God I hope it aint Steve Clark, he always hammers the tigers.

  4. interested to see fitness levels tonight – if one team is better at the back end. spose thats only good if its a close game tho. those tigers better aim up
