There are rumours abound about the life of Jason Taylor as coach of the Tigers.
After his off season spat with Farah (presumably regarding schnitzel restaurants and their viability in the Leichhardt area), it seems Taylor has been on shaky ground. Taylor looked to flex his muscles of superiority over Farah during the off season only to be punched down the stairs by Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe who seemed to side with Robbie. Look for a coach switch mid season after Robbie refuses Jason Taylors direction to pass the ball to Mitchell Moses once in a while.
Speaking of Moses, the young backs are where the Tigers are placing all their hopes. Mitchell Moses and Luke Brooks have both shown they have potential, however, the fact they also could get jobs at the RTA drivers license testing area as speed humps means they lack the complete package. Tedesco rounds out the talented Tiger Cubs and could turn from an “Origin Bolter” into actual Origin player with some good performances at the beginning of the season.
The loss of Marty Taupau will take some starch from their forward pack. The strongest man in league was not strong enough to carry this club and left for a more relaxed tenure at Manly. This leaves Aaron Woods as the only notable forward to eat those meters in 2016. I would consider Aaron Woods’ dog better than the rest of the Tigers forward pack, such is the quality of the dog. Woods will need to put all dreams of his dog being the first canine to play NRL aside and focus on leading the Wests Tigers forward pack in 2016.
Cherrington will be one to watch this season, hopefully given more game time as Farah fields calls on the sidelines from Schntiz Franchisers (how many schnitzel restaurant jokes is too many?). Last year he showed he can add impact off the bench, so look forward to more impromptu carpark Haka’s performed by Cherrington’s family this season.
