Mate, so true! I'd pay a million bucks to get him as our fullback - he is simply brilliant!

The Tigers have their own junior Slater in the making with James Tedesco hopefully. At 17 he showed what he is capable of today with 4 tries against the Storm.

Rarely! And look at all the tries he saves with incredible one on one defence - not to mention his support play, speed and ability to break the line.

Golden I agree - his support play is brilliant, but under the bomb he is very suspect - put that little worm under pressure and rain bombs at him all game, and find a way to take out the chance to run into broken play and he's a nuffie.

and he's a filthy grub in tackles.

Golden, maybe you should ban yourself from posting for 24 hrs after a loss? Another stupid comment. Slater overrated?? Are you serious?

Here's another tidbit. Marshall isn't the worlds best player. Never has been. You want to talk about overrated players, I for one do not think he is as great as everyone thinks. I agree with the above comments about Slater. I would love love him as our number 1.

Sorry Billy is a grub of the highest order. A good player but hardly an immortal as he has too many brain explosions

Slater best player in the world for mine, although has always had the luxury of playing with high quality halves, but even still in the best 2 or 3.

come on he runs off Cooper Cronk cameron smith Thurston and Lockyer his entire life, look at the 09 grand final almost cost the storm the game with losing a bomb late in the game, he also dropped a couple against NSW which helped NSW score 1 try and go on the attack he is OVERrated

Needs to cut some of the crap out of his game.

Would have him at the Tigers in a heartbeat.


Anyone saying he's overrated needs to watch Moltzen play fullback.

no point putting a grubber behind the line when slater's at fullback. he is always there to clean it up. great positional play in defence, and we all know wat he can do in attack
