Most wingers will have some sort of issue - that's why they're playing on the wing. Most of the best ones make their way to fullback or centre once they've made their name in first grade - not many specialist long term wingers these days.
The vast majority of rep team wingers play their week to week football in another position.

That is true, but Nightingale has played his career on the wing, and Blacklock did also, but you are right a winger these days is not what it use to be.

That was brilliant. Never seen anyone chase Koro down before let alone run around him. Teddy is a very special player.

Settle down, Koro had hold of Teddy.. He only really got around him for 10 meters or so as he was in full motion and Koro had to turn around and chase. Rounded him up pretty quickly too. Was a great try but he didn't really burn Koro at all.

Would rather have Koro than Nofo,
Austin than Moses,
Blair than Sirro.
They are less injury prone and I"m sure we would be doing better full stop.
Certainly glad you are not doing the recruiting for the Wests Tigers.

Why would you keep 3 players that do not want to play for us?

Why would you keep 3 players that are not as good as those you want to sack?

An astute recruitment manager - wouldn't.

Spilled milk brigade, bring back Koro, bring back Austin, bring back Fifita, bring back Benji, I saw Elvis at the Mall last week bring him back to sing at the GF.

Lets not bring Koro up again he is a gun. We chose signing Richards ahead of retaining him.

K is super fast and Strong.

When Nofo is back on song, His Awareness, defense and skills will again remind us why this young guys is a keeper.

Both He and and Simona will be back.

He was put on show and found wanting....
I wonder how many people pining for him to come back actually watch a full Melbourne Storm game?
- Or do you just see his 2 tries on the highlight reel?

Again he was exposed for poor hands and bad reads in defence.
At least one of his tries was fortunate, Kevy rushed him and missed him and it opened up - Even then, he still only just made it.
I loved Koro, His strength and speed were fantastic to watch, And the Tigers will always be the team that discovered him. But if that's as good as he gets in a team like the storm with THE BEST kicker in the game - They can keep him.
How many of our tries were on him - And we're terrible ATM.
Halatau, Nof, Teddy... All scored off him...
Good teams will tear him to pieces.
