So far the buy of the season, imo. He is really impressive in both defence and attack, reads the game well and has a lot of spark. Definitely would've had 5 tries on the board if not for a couple of ugly bounces last week.

I thought we would really miss not having Tedesco in the team, such was his class, but I honestly think that Thompson will end up being much better for us in the long run, no matter where he plays. Couldn't be happier!
I was talking to a mate and he said the same thing about losing Tedesco. Guess what? The teams that have made the finals had no Teddy - Marsters is stepping up as the X-Factor player...always looks likely to bust a tackle or get an offload away.

Thompson has been awesome...he's in everything.

Not sure about MWZ...he hasn't been bad, but he doesn't make metres...Noffa was awesome last week and deserves a spot on the other wing IMHO

He’s going great. All heart, a smart footballer & elusive too!

For mine, he is outplaying Tui. I think Tui needs more match fitness but his goal kicking is coming along nicely & probably keeping him in the #1 for now.

Good to have competition.

not bad for 90k a year, I checked out the Kennel when we signed him and most of them were laughing at us (not all of them but most)

Has been one of our best every game so far.
Thee best, with Packer! (And Coach)!! Ok just all the team and management. :D an me #1 fan!

He's surprised the hell out of me, I love watching him play. I get the feeling he could make something happen every time he touches the ball. Got to find a spot for him in the team, Noffa's only way back in is through injury or if MWZ form dips.

Makes up for what he lacks in size (and subsequently defense) by being brilliant in attack. Would move him to FB next week and bring Nofa up to wing at Tui’s expense.
Lol

Seriously, what does this guy need to do. Christ.
lol needed to stop Keith Lulia bagging 4 tries against him in 2014. Yeah, I know, I need to let that go. Seems you’re quite a fan?

Reminds me a lot of Brett Hodgson, not the biggest or the strongest, but makes up for it with determination, putting his body on the line and knowing where he needs to be at all times. If he's half the player Hodgo was for us he will do just fine.
Agreed. If some players had half his heart and toughness they’d go a long way.

Tui was brilliant today... Who would be goalkicking anyways ??? Leave Thompson on the wing, he did fine there
Was Tui great?

He was a step of the pace all game if you ask me. Poor positioning and effort in the Eels first try. His ball playing consisted of long sideways runs often running out of room and support players.

You definitely can't leave him out due to his outstanding goal kicking, however the team would more than likely be better served with Corey at the back further down the track.
Tui was coming back after a couple of weeks off injured, in a position that he hasn’t held for the majority of his career and having not completed a full off season due to the World Cup.

I’m happy to give Tui time at the back with Corey on the wing as I think we need both players in the team and long term Tui’s best position is fullback.

lol I agree...he went well this afternoon and I advocate for him to move up in the pecking order to play FB. He epitomises everything good about our side at the moment.

I think it was on here I read he’s on $95k for this year. What a bargain we got but now I hope when the time comes we repay the faith.
