If Tui is not a better FB than this bloke - we are in big trouble...

Tui has a mortgage on the FB spot - believe me KS.
No one should have a mortgage on any spot really..
That’s been one of our biggest problem for years, form is what counts; (or should be).
Talk about tangents.

I am not saying he has a mortgage without good form. I am saying he has the form, the defence, the playmaking ability, the linking with the back line and the x-factor to make the No. 1 jumper his.

Yes, we will see, but for mine he will out perform any full back pretenders in 2018.
He doesn’t have any form at all at fullback so far, if he’s the best when he gets the chance, fine.
But at the moment it’s no ones spot.
It’s a whole new season
I hope Whoever gets it is pushed by others for the whole year.
That hasn’t happened here for a long while

He is a winger at this level, a pure finisher who needs to play outside a good centre.

I would assume he is behind that Malake bloke and Kev before we may see him.

I thought Malakai Watene Zelezniak and Kev did ok in the back half of last year on the wing. Kev also went pretty good at fullback in the WC and when he filled in for Tedesco last year. Both good depth players. Although I haven’t Corey Thompson’s form in the last two years or so to comment on where he is placed in the depth picking order. However both Kev and Malakai Watene Zelezniak got a wing pass mark at NRL level last season.
Out of the three Kev (due to WC form) would have the inside running over MWZ and CP.

1. Lolohea (Kev as back up)
2. Nofo
3. Marsters
4. Milne
5. Fonua/ Kev/ Malakai Watene Zelezniak/ C.T
in Ivan we distrust

Maybe so>

Ben Barba, Brett Hodgson, Robbie Odavis, Lachlan Coote, Even Tim Brasher was no giant.
You dont have to be 6'6 and made of stone all of these blokes above proved that.
I remember watching him on the wing a few years back in 2014 the year the dogs went all the way to GF.
hes got 87 games for 52 4 pointers.......thats better finishing then any other player in our current sqaud.
great signing in my book.
Reminds me of Mighty Mouse in some ways - fairly reliable and respectable, but if you are small you need to have something very special in another category to take that next step. A good big player will beat an equally good small player over time.

Barba, Hodgo... yeah special talents on small frames. Clive Churchill! But you need special talent to make a career without the average size/strength. I don't think Thompson has this special talent, but I'm quite pleased with his capacity as a backup.

And if I am proven wrong - all the better.

As long as Kev doesn't play center, I think we'll be fine.

Agree, was very safe, quick feet and made good meters....he might not start the year in 1st grade but i reckon he will be a starter by end of the year.
Always was a high performer for Widnes and was pretty decent for the Dog's despite his size. I reckon he is pretty good buy and exactly the type of payer who will go under the radar but will always perform when called upon.

I find it interesting that Nofo has one wing spot sealed up by many ... he is not a bad winger but there are now players at the club that certainly will put pressure on him to perform and keep his spot . Thomson can kick goals well that means he is half way there .

Have we cancelled the Tuesday afternoon team announcement in 2018?

Seems that way with all this rubbish about a trial side being the finished and final product.

Ivan dropping tui to NSW cup and playing Corey Thompson at fullback shows that tui’s fullback spot is not locked in at all.

David Nofoaluma came off the bench last week. And we signed Chris McQueen to play reserve grade.

All makes sense yeah.

Trails are the be all and end all. :lol:
