Nofo will be back at some stage.

Whats great about this is genuine competition for positions and rewards for good play. Thompsons trial form got him in.

Im sure he has been told whats required. If you believe he wasnt told anything because it wasnt mentioned in some two-bit article in the paper, then open your brain.

Genuine competition for positions? Well not Naiqama's apparently. He never was a good player and there he was.

Well the final episode of this day forward cleary addressed the players and named the round 1 team. Noted that a lot of good players did not make the list and its a hard decision said the decision is his and left it open by saying if anyone would like to speak to me why the did not make it to come see me.

As per this article sounds like nofo did not speak to the coach about why he didn't make it.

I was surprised by Nofo's sacking, but I don't reckon those 2 will ever be dropped, no matter how bad they might play!

Nofo hasn't necessarily done anything wrong IMO, Thompson is just playing that position better right now.
I hope we see a hard hitting performance from Rocky Nofoaluma

Naiqama is a mistake prone and goes missing in the heat of battle because he cant cope, get rid of asap

If Nof has a massive game and Thompson carries on with his form, Tui might be the one stuck having to fight his way back into the side.

I don’t dislike Nofo or Kev but their continual bad reads in defence over a long period of time doesn’t put a lot of faith in me,both again had issues last week leaving their opposing player unmarked by rushing in.

First need to use depth that Ivan has created and the side still looks strong looking at other teams with a high priced 17 there depth is shallow where as the tigers depth is strong with all positions being able to be covered by 2 to 3 players

All he really needs to do is fix his defence
