His support play was also exceptional every time there was a break he was the first one there, when Lawrence made the break he was next to him but chose not to pass would of been a try next to the posts

If we sign Mbye i would have Tui as our bench option next year could slot anywhere in the backline with ease and at a pinch play a bit of dummy half or swap around with grub if need be. That is of course is if Benji hangs em up and we dont swap Tui for Mbye.

P.S. I think Benji should hang up the boots and move into a mentoring/ambassador role next year.

I hope not! I like Tui, besides what do we get out of swapping him for Moses? Still paying close to 700k for Moses. Doesn't make sense
Where does this come from? Moses asked for a release, and was granted one, the only money on our salary cap was what we had already paid him last year.
I may be wrong but that’s just my understanding of it...

Think you'll find he is talking about Moses Mbye.

We would be crazy to let Tui go, he is still transitioning to the fullback role - that doesn’t happen overnight but he was one of the shining lights against the bulldogs with his speed and footwork.
But if Mbye comes....
I think it would depend on Benji, if he hangs up the boots Tui could be 14 next year.

I have never seen Tui play Hooker except for 1 set yesterday but when Liddle needs a rest either Reynolds or Mbye can defiantly fill in at hooker.

There was talk Mose Mbye was going to be a swap for Lolohere. Nothing to do with the worm Moses

What are peoples thoughts on looking to use Lohohea as a hooker. I know he's having trouble with his knee currently however this will improve and he showed lasted that he's a football talent. As he's maturing his body is turning into more of a typical forward.

A spine of:-

9 Tui
7 Brooks
6 JR
1 Mbye

14 Marshal

might just be enough to push us deeper into the back end of the season. It also means we could play ET at lock or second row which is preferable.

Thoughts!

I don't think he could handle it.
Lazy and sloppy defender.

Think we should just admit he's a dud and that we need Mbye now and a reliable hooker. Outsourcing needed.

Not sure he could handle the defensive load in the middle.

Tui to hooker?? He looks gassed after 2 sets, never mind having to do 40 tackles a game.

Lets face it. Hes not up to it and Cleary got this one wrong.

Bad injuries can do that to some of the most talented in the NRL....Tui is no diferent, but jut keep bad mouthing him like many other key board warriors have over the last few weeks....its human nature until you walk a mile in their shoes...I hope he does come good if not Ivan will know what to do with him.....If he seriously wants to shine in the NRL then its up to him ,Im sure he and Ivan have had many long discussions regarding his form....dont make out you know more than the man qualified for the job,we are after all just fans with no inside info,rather personal opinion wich means SFA to the ones who are the main concern...

Did I hit a Nerve ??

How did i bad mouth him ?

Everyone on this forum has an opinion so stop acting like his mother and being over protective

And BTW, using SFA also violates rules of the Forum

You of all people should know that !

And on the topic of Bad injuries, do you see Chris Lawrence running slow ??
Still goes hard for as long as he can

Didnt hit a nerve at all...I have played the game and know exactly how some players deal with injuries and the step up to another grade...Tui had wraps on him for quite awhile ,Ivan coached him for a fair period and wanted him at the Tigers...he is the man in charge and if Tui cant deliver for whatever reason then Ivan will find a solution...if you cant handle being told something from someone who has had experience in the same situation,then its best if you say nothing at all and listen to an honest perspective,not a negative jibe....

As far as Lawrence goes many wanted him out as soon as possible,Ivan has turned his game around and we are now seeing a much better player than 2 years ago...he also gives 300 per cent in being a better player and works on it ,not like some...

He needs to find his form, enthusiasm, hunger or what ever it is in reserve grade, we do not have the talent to carry a non interested bludger in our 1st grade team.

Now go back and read my initial Post

Urgency has nothing to do with injuries.
I didnt say he was slow, i said he didnt look busy

Compare him to CT at fullback
One waits for the ball to bounce and come to a rest whilst the other attacks it and runs back as soon as he can

Once again, i say Tui doesnt show the urgency.
No mention of his form, ability, skill or the lack off.
That would be a personal attack and bad mouthing

And for the record i can claim expertise in my own field too. This post has nothing to do with you, Its about Tui
