How quick do people change their opinions on a player? Just the other week people we're talking up about how good Fonua was then he has one bad game and people turn on him. Same as Tui, I thought he was very solid last week and I thought he did fairly well today apart from that 1 mistake he made where the ball bounced off his head. I don't think there's any reason for Thompson to be picked at fullback instead of Tui, Thompson made some mistakes when he played at fullback, like how he let the ball bounce a fair bit. Tui is solid right now and he will come good, he's not lazy he's still injured. His knee is still heavily strapped and you could see him limping off his injured knee. I saw him attempt to do a step off his injured knee and I could tell by his reaction of how much pain he was in.

If Tui has to be booted for a poor performance,then Benji must also go with him because he is holding Brooks back atm and watch him kick in goal and run sideways not to get tackled and hurt...Benj has had his day in the sun...on the bench and let Grub have ago at 5/8...

He was average, no denying that. The sad part is he’s capable of a lot more. I think it’s a mental thing. Not sure where his head is at.
He’s not fit that gives you a fair idea of where his head is at. It’s like turning up for work drunk....you are no chance.
Larry that is the trouble with our club, it is never anyone's fault, no accountability, always an excuse, well not me he has had plenty of chances, see you mate, ISP for a very long stretch :x

He's no fullback, of that I am convinced. 6 is his position, whether he's doing enough to displace Benji is another matter.

Was that Tui?? I thought it was Elvis. They are probably in the changerooms deep frying peanut butter and jelly sandwiches right now...

The fact we've signed Mbye is an indication Ivan's made a determination about the future of Tui as a fullback.
Unfortunately the couple of mistakes he's made in the past couple of weeks have been costly. It seems increasingly likely that Mbye will be here sooner rather than later so the calls for Tui to be demoted will be satisfied. I'd hate to hear the criticism if he didn't make that chase and ankle tap.

I'll wait for Russell to have his say..

However Brooks created a lot of opportunities in the 1st half and the Fullback was no where to been seen..

Put Corey back there and MWZ on the wing..Kevin on the other..
Agree and get rid of MCK from squad completely..
