We don't have one!
Just another reason we'll struggle to sneak into 13th at seasons end.
Just another important factor we lack.
It won't be a problem because i can't see us scoring many tries anyway, we struggled last year with Teddy as our only hope so i can't see things getting better in that department unfortunately.

Add no goal kicker to the list of no's.
Class
Speed
A halfback
A decent kicker
A strike weapon

Sorry for not being Mr positive, just calling it the way i see it.
If you are calling it like you see it - how come you are talking up Tedesco from last year.

In actual fact for 80-85% of the year he was a liability.

I'm not talking up Tedesco, I just stated the fact that he was our go to guy and we we're still pretty ordinary so how are we going to be without him.
I agree with you that he wasn't great last year.
Yes, we agree he wasn't great last year for the Tigers.

So, what I am saying is that he may have been "the go to guy" but he basically did nothing - he may have taken the heat off some other players but that was not taken advantage of.

So if our FB this year is Thompson, Lolohea, Kev or someone else we are not any worse off than last year and may well be a lot better off.

That is a positive thought isn't it?
Only if you consider any of those guys better fullbacks than Tedesco.
I'm no huge Teddy fanboy but none of these 3 get even close imo.
Lets be real here, we're comparing fringe first graders who have little to no Nrl time at fullback with the NSW and possibly the Kangaroos no 1.

Tiger, I am not talking about what he was, or what he will be in the future.

We are talking about what he was in 2017 for the tigers - basically a reserve grader himself. So replacing him with a fringe first grader as you call them (I don't) is not really a minus situation.

Anyway lets drop it as you are missing my point and we are getting off topic.

Look it has to be Lolohea.....Don't get me wrong Thompson done nothing wrong. In my eyes Tui can be our match winner and he has to be selected for Rd 1. It's not as if we have anyone better to kick goals.
Tedesco was useless at kicking goals!!!!
Well its nearly time to have a 'CRACK'....Go you :sign:

Just want to shout out to Esan Marsters who has kicked 20/23 this Year ..roughly kicking at 87%...

Well done Hodgo for working with the young guy...seems to be striking them OK..

While he's kicking better then expected, he has had it very lucky. Not many hard kicks in there at all, and some easy misses. Another example how stats can be deceiving.

I saw Cherry-Evans and Foran put them under the cross-bar and wide from in front...

Yeah Esan has surprised me as well .. !! Still can't understand as to why Taylor (who was a good goal kicker in his time) never trained up a good goal kicker with us, so well done to Hodgo for taking his time with our kickers

As King Sirro said not a lot of hard kicks .. ie: out wide ..!! Well that means two things, either we've had some good line breaks and score next to or under the posts ... or our outside backs haven't been / can't make line breaks out wide to score out wide .. !!

Because as his time with us proved, he isn't very good at coaching.
He probably tried but it didn't work.

Yeah..I accept full responsibility... :oops:

Still at 22/28...

Watching the replay now 2 of the 3 misses were shockers ..1 not by much...

As long as he keeps working hard and keeps improving I'll be happy...
