I'm not quick to judge he played most of last year injured and came back from 3 years on injury... So I hope he shines... Maybe the coach sees something we haven't yet?

The 9s for us was very much a game of individual players running around not too sure what they were supposed to be doing.
We have been training all off-season for the 13 a side game and hopefully with solid structure and strategy we will see the best from the boys.

Come Rd1, I'd like to see:
Galloway - Buchanen
Fulton - Austin (but Thomson pushed to bench)

I'd rather not rush Sue or Simona as they haven't had full contact training for a while. Give them a bit of time then put them in the team where needed.

Maybe Potter has become so used to seeing Tigers arm grab that it is now the norm

Thompson has underperformed so far. He had a standout game against the Storm down in Melbourne last year where we really pushed them. He showed some real venom that night with plenty of big hits on the left edge. If he played like that every week, he'd be good. He's got aggression but like our backrow last year, lacks involvement. I think we'll get good value out of Patterson, he has a good motor, and is a good defender. I think Sirro will also go from strength to strength when he's fit. It's up to guys like Thompson, BMM and Blair to pick their game up.

Otherwise, it's a strong side allowing for Galloway, Simona and Fulton who are yet to return.

Like Willow says the game vs Storm last year he was in everything , but apart from that haven't seen anything more to suggest he has cemented a back row position.
Hope he proves me wrong .

Nah but seriously give the bloke a chance he was playing centre most of last year.

Adam Blair made a great move to prop, was having his best games....SO WHY MOVE HIM BACK TO LOCK?

Not in Fitzy's class.

I dont think Thompson has had a decent run of games without injury to show his wares. Was highly rated as a junior and has shown the odd glimpse - in more than just the Storm game last year. As the racing guys might say - look for a bold showing.

why so angry? it's a reasonable question...

The only immediate changes I would make to that side would be Thompson for Fulton, and Galloway for either Austin or Buchanan. I'd be leaning towards starting Taupau and easing Galloway in to starting from the bench. IMO we could make some powerful combinations between Woods and Taupau and Galloway and Gavet.

I'm prepared to give him another shot Spartan , but if he pulls out another involved for first 15 minutes and then go missing performance he shouldn't be there come Round 1
