Let's assume Tui gets stuck in reggies

Because Thompson is the better option at fullback.

Would you be prepared to swap Tui for Alex Johnston?

I'm not prepared to write off Tui just yet, I think he is playing injured. Just thinking ahead here.

Good point. Are there any goal kicking wingers?

Clint Gutherson..

Lolohea probably ask for a release now..I believe that's how it rolls if you get dropped..

Am I missing something with Johnston's contract status? Didn't he resign on a lengthy deal with Souths last year?

Dunno about that. Let's see if a 20 page Gutho thread changes their mind.
Just because it didn't work with Rona, Barba, etc . . . it's gotta come up trumps soon !

Yeah I think so. But we all know contracts mean nothing these days.

Gutherson probably has enough to deal with after a second knee reconstruction, pressure to get back and perform I'd say his interest in switching clubs would be zero and the Eels could afford to more than match our offer :D

No joke, thats the exact thread that popped up on the kennel today.

But seriously, Lolohea really didn't do enough to cement his spot in the team. Not surprised he was dropped. He should do what Noff did and work his way back in.

I think we are a better team with a fully fit lolohea in it. Hopefully works his ass off in Reggie’s and training and comes back to where he belongs.

I liked him up in the line in defence last year. When he took Moses spot our defence suddenly got a whole lot better. I’m not sure how he go at centre but I’d try him there in ISP .

We should get Mitch Moses back.

He will be real cheap by round 10.

He sort of kicks

Gutho after the injury ??
Johnston - No

Tui is an enigma, for reasons unknown i don't think we'll ever get to see the best of him.
