Lolohea won't be replacing Thompson at FG...given ISP's predicament losing another half on the weekend..Lolohea may be better served coming back through there...

Was going well at 5/8 last year some more heat on Benji wouldn't hurt either..

Reynolds is quite a way off...
He should be a shoe-in for 6 in ISP.

If Tui is anywhere near ready put him straight in at 5/8.

Benji is like an overcooked turkey at the moment.
That's the problem at the moment, he's way down on match fitness.
It's a shame. The guy needs to get on the park
Its an opinion!

Yep Thompson is a set and forget winger.
I feel that last week against Warriors showed Thommo's limitations as a fullback. A good backup and a good kid, but he got fairly monstered and he just doesn't cause enough drama in attack from set pieces. He has great footwork but about half of his kick returns are dominant tackles, and although he supports offloads well, we haven't been much of an offload team of late. His positional play is excellent, but also he'll almost never be able to barge out of an in-goal or stop a try 1-1 at the line.

The premium FBs at this level offer another dimension in attack - tackle breaks, pass selection / extra 5/8th, pure speed to worry a backline. Thommo is more a winger, hunting around for opportunities, makes his tackles, solid positioning.

Again very good fullback 2nd option but as a first option, he's not going to add a lot of threat.

Not sure who knows what on this forum with team selections but from the different comments I’ve heard in the press this week I’m predicting Tui back as fullback, Thomson to wing and McQueen in the 17 with Lawrence out. Also expecting Liddle to play with Taylor as back up.

WE need to show some faith in Tui in the fullback role, give him a few weeks to settle in there, and he showed last year what his capabilities are , he has the X factor that we need. Have Thommo and Fonua as our wingers.

If he’s back before Reynolds put him on the bench. ET covers hooker, tui covers fb, centre via Fonua, and can give benji a rest when he needs it. Or, just start him at 5/8 and play benji like it was supposed to be. We know what he can do at 5/8

Cory will be targeted with kicks on the wing and I’m not sure we would be better off with him there. With Fonua on the other wing - all the kicks will go his way

No way tui comes in before Thompson.... are you kidding me....,haven’t you been watching games this year. He has been as safe as houses and one of our main attacking avenues....dear god. I have seen nothing from tui....you thinking Marshall is going ordinary and taking the wrong options....you multiply this with tui

This is my hope. Tui has been underwhelming but playing injured may have been the reason.

Maybe you missed the post on the previous page saying Cleary confirmed he came back too early from a knee injury.
