Craigie was an immense talent the main problem was he had an appetite to match.I always liked him as a player and he could have been one of the best players of his generation if he training regime matched his ability.
There is no comparison to Tui imo

Owen Craig was rated a better junior than Andrew Johns when they both came through the junior Knights which shows you how much talent he had.


Unless Tui shows he is willing to put in the hard work his time at WT and the NRL will be over.

Talent can only get you so far in life. Players like Paul Gallen and Wayne Pearce lacked talent but always play to their best of their abilities and showed a lot of heart and commitment.

If I was IC I would give Tui a timeframe and KPI's to work on and if not achieved he will be moved on. Ball is in his court.

Owen Craigie wasn't as good as Fitzhenry and you know what stick he cops.

Yet he played first grade for 10 years.... Helluva lot more than Tui will achieve

Tui isn't in the same suburb let alone the same path
I don’t think Cragie had as good a career as you do. He had 3 good years at Newcastle and did not exactly set the world on fire here.

Craigie was more talented than Tui, but Tui showed a heap of talent early days in NZ too.

My point is that both have failed to live up to potential because of unprofessional behaviour.

Tui is an immense talent that has no drive or desire to be great. I hope he turns it around but coming to a new club clearly not in great shape is a red flag. If you aren’t doing everything to impress your new club and coach is hardly likely to get better next year.
He’s not in huge coin and is a capable ISP player so it’s not a huge issue with Mbye signed.

How good is tui at 6.

football operations failed again.......

tui to full back.......... disastrous.

Reynolds 4 year deal....... disastrous.

Not replacing farah........ fail

Playing Gamble last week......... fail


Maybe front office needs a review to compete with the big boys.

Lolohea is lazy and disintersted and does not want to put in the hard yards no one has made a bad decision about him but him himself!

Its not easy just slotting into full back think your being harsh.

Bad decision by coach to put him at 1.

Tui and marshall are our top 6's.

Tui playing well to-night, looks quicker as well & is def a 6. I also see he has no strapping on his knee.

He played 6 for us last year and was average at nrl level.

I do think he’s a better 6 than at 1 but he’s behind Marshall and Reynolds and long term probably Gamble.
