You’re talking about a player whose won a premiership and played both SOO and for Australia. Talk of “potential” has long since passed.
Since coming back from injury Tupou has been really good, surprisingly good, making good yardage out of his own half, he would waltz in to our backline
Absolutely. And he’s tall and fast, two things we’re lacking at the moment. Tupou would be a really good pickup for us.
So that means he would replace Nofo or Thompson?. Not sure they are the players who need to be replaced.
Nofo and Thompson have earned a lot of loyalty due to their effort, which can't be questioned. But I think if we have an opportunity to upgrade a position, we should do it - regardless of who it is. All the good clubs seem to do that.

Surely we could get one of the roosters 2nd rowers, Matterson would be my target. Only has 1 year left and Roosters have plenty of 2nd rowers on long contracts.

Matterson was one of the best edge forwards in the first 2 months this year until he got injured now he might be slightly out of favour with the roosters.

Not sure he is an upgrade. Has got the height advantage, but have never thought he was that reliable when the going gets tough. Just my opinion.

Tupou actually has potential and unfortunately potential signings is all we can aim for. It was no different to what Sheens did back in 03 to 04, signed a head of guys on potential or who were on the outer.

I think everyone knows what Tupou can do and even with issues he has, he would still outright be the best winger we have.

Is he even off contract? I'm pretty sure the Roosters re-signed him for another 4 years at the end of last season.

Similar scenario to Mitch Pearce . He was signed then the Roosters signed Cronk so they released Pearce .

If the Roosters have 2 wingers coming they won’t be paying Tupou to play for Wyong .

Morris for Tupou isn't really an upgrade at his age and Tupou has been playing really well since he re-signed and come back from injury. If makes no sense they would just turf him out now.

Tupou haaaa, he's OK.
Could be a Tui like signing or could be a surprise packet.

Idk.

Matterson is a good target. Crichton is a myth. Roosters can have him, won’t play another origin.

Check out Luke Garner’s performance today against the bunnies .. this will make us attractive to a lot of young talent from other clubs - we have given opportunity to a lot of young guys since Ivan took over the reins, most clubs are too busy poaching to look at their own nursery.
I agree that Matterson is very good and the roosters have nailed a dud in Crichton.
