Blame the coach. Imagine the crap Taylor would have copped persisting with him lol. Cleary gets a free pass. They'll bag Tui, but stop short of giving the man who picks him a serve.
Do you always have to find a way to stick up for Taylor ?
Must be related ?!
We need mongrel ..
No more plodders !

The effort on the Gallen try did it for me, that should be his last NRL game for the Tigers imo.
Really disappointing because when we signed him I had high hopes he'd reach his potential.
If you watch his early highlights he's not even 40% of the player he was, his speed and step and agility and ability is light years away from where it was.
Agree. You can see why the Warriors did'nt want & refused to play in NRL even tho they were getting smacked. We need him gone to ISP or right out and take MCK with him.

Just not first grade standard. I have a hunch Cleary is audtioning him for other teams atm.
Defies logic being selected in front of Corey.
We have good enough wingers MWZ, Kev even Fonua could move out wide.

But at what what cost. We can't afford to carry this first grade imposter.

If Mbye doesn't get here this season.

Kevie needs to go to 1
At least we know he'll bring the ball back with some gusto and put his body in a position to stop a try.
If I was Ivan I would have hooked Lolo immediately in that game and at the video session I would have paused and rewound his effort on Gallens try and made it clear to the rest of the team that if anyone else wants to put in halfassed efforts like that, they can join lolo playing against Blacktown for the rest of the season.

when brookes kicked the ball tui was standing on lukes blind side.- and of course holmes just ran through.
tui didnt even try to chase.
but later in the half he perked up to a degree.
certainly a selection dilemma for the coach.

Gotta admit I'm starting to feel complexed about some of the selections. There must be more method to the madness than we realise, in other words, there's more going on than the ordinary fan is privvy to.
On the face of it, Felise and Garner should both be promoted in the forwards and Tui should be replaced by MWZ with Thommo going back to fullback.
But, of course, WE KNOW these changes will not eventuate for reasons that we DON'T KNOW.....

is it really any different to when tim sheens selected the side.
forumers wanted change but sheens stuck by what he thought was the best balance.
same goes with ivan cleary apparently.

The one thing that I can’t understand that some are surprised.

Can’t be picked this week. Is not up to grade in talent or effort. Looks lost in both attack and defence. I assumed he was getting picked to add some playmaking and kicking options for attqcking plays. But he doesn’t get involved at all so I can’t work out why he is there. Kev offers more as a ball playing fullback and Thompson has 10x the heart. Needs to go back to playing 5/8 in ISP. He is no fullback.

Watching Mbye today, highly involved, not scared to take the line on, opposite of our current fullbacks attitude

Put him in reserve grade. Let him work out that he either has a go, or is free to go.

A few of us perked up well before that.

Rewatching the game tui showed improvement he ran the ball from the kick better and some good and bad things.


It was brooks and lesser extent reynolds kicking game in the secomd half which put us under massive pressure and which led to most our tries.

The gal try was inexcusable for tui needed more urgency to rap the ball.

Problem is , it wasn't just the Gal try. I know it was disallowed due to a knock on but his effort early in the game with the Luke Lewis no try was also poor. He just doesn't show the desperation that this side is supposed to be built on, you know the inch by inch stuff. Seriously, look at the effort Thompson has put in when he is at the back, they are so far apart it isn't funny, and i think thats what is so frustrating about Tui. Its not ability but effort.

To be fair to Tui did a couple of good things in the game-it wasnt all bad. Positioned himself well for the try (as a fullback should) and the ball he picked up from the grubber kick on the line under immense pressure was brave.
But he just does not play with any level of intensity and he is not good enough to get away with it. Could be wrong but he plays like he thinks he is better than he actually is.
