Well, with two good kickers when they played in Ivan and Hodgo.. would hope they'd be able to train one of the guys up during the offseason and preseason, if it's lolohea or someone else.
Jason Taylor....
Is Lawrence next??

I don't care what Tui's run in looks like as long as he kicks them. Plenty of fast bowlers have a stutter prior to the delivery point because that's how they naturally develop their style and it helps them with their balance and timing. It all just becomes part of the muscle memory and completely changing a bowling style or kicking style would just waste hundreds of hours of training. Tweaks to a style can be integrated but major changes are a waste of time.

Tui has his own particular technique and style..kicking goals is much like hitting golf balls straight...its called ALIGNMENT,once he gets that right he will have a much better success rate...trust me on this one...TT was pretty good at kicking goals himself..around about 85 % success rate.... 8-)
You may see me struggle...but you will never see me quit... :D

Lolohea strikes them ok but to miss goals from 20 in / 20 out is unacceptable at this level .
Can brooks kick goals ?
Brooks would find a way to kick under the crossbar and still clear the dead ball line on the full.
Ronaldo
We need mongrel ..
No more plodders !

I still don't get how JT could not train anyone to be a decent kicker.

Personally I think Lolohea has done enough at least to mean the Tigers shouldn't be trying to crowbar A.N. Other kicker into the side just because they kick goals. He probably won't ever be an 85% kicker but if he can improve to 75-80% - which seems distinctly possible - the difference is actually pretty minimal over a season.

The winger who used to play for the Dogs is coming back from England. I think that he was a very, very good kicker and still is. Top goal kicker ( or thereabouts ) in England.
Thing Is Col If Hes In Firsts Were In Trouble I Think
Who's that Col?
Corey Thompson, did he kick goals? maybe Inu?

Gordon has praised JT for refining his goal kicking in the last few months, how come he couldn't coach any of our kickers to get better

Maybe it was the players he was teaching who were the problem.

And yet he kept picking Rankin, who was suppose to be a kicker, a poor kicker and worse player
