I think Hodgson is our next best option
Could probably still play better than most.

If Tui is to be a regular in our side he needs to make it at fullback, his kicking game isn't good enough to get him a gig in the halves. With his good footwork and turn of pace he should make a good fullback, not sure about his defence but all fullbacks in the modern game are pretty poor defenders (perhaps except for Kickin' Billy, he's not bad). Kev is a decent backup. As for Corey Thompson being an option.....he would get out-jumped by Gary Coleman. Whattya talkin' bout Willis?
Benji could've been an option a while ago but he wouldn't have the motor anymore.

Surprised Benji did not get a mention as an option. I think there would need to be a couple of injuries before he is considered, but surely would be as much a contender as Corey Thompson.

I agree, hopefully between Raynolds and Brooks our short/long kicking issues will be solved :pray:
Makes you wander how could anyone play Lawrence at 5/8??? Talking about Sheensians? :crazy
