Matthew Head will join the West Tigers in 2008 and give the 2005 Premiers the halfback they have missed since Scott Prince left the club.
Head can be a handy player but he hasn’t really impressed even going back to his days at the Dragons….which to be honest feels like yesterday.
The Tigers have a few question marks hanging over them this coming season.
They have lost a few players to Super League, they are almost assured of losing a couple of more next year including Brett Hodgson, they have Benji Marshall needing to come back from yet another shoulder operation and after a disappointing 2007 season they can afford to slip backwards in 2008.
They have a good junior base at the Tigers and we’ll likely see a few young players get a run in 2008. I would also expect that we will see Benji Marshall tried out at fullback at some point.
Yes he is a brilliant five-eight, but if coach Tim Sheens can take some of the pressure away from him defensively that can only be a good thing for the shoulders or one of the most exciting players in the game.
