Not in front of Thompson as a fullback he isn’t.

Lets hope it happens, Thompson either at wing OR fullback is still the same player...we need to improve our roster, outside backs is a weakness...crazy to knock it back imo

Im not totally convinced he is a fullback
Im happy for thompson to stay our fullback
But if we do happen to sign him il be happy to have him at our club, for the right reasons and not paying overs for him

I'm surprised by this Innsaneink as i thought you would be one of the people saying he isn't a fullback.

It will be interesting to see if this deal does go ahead. How likely are we to snare him?

Hopefully Sue or Grant for Holmes will get it done.

I got told on Tuesday night when posted we were in serious talks and very likely to get him for this year. Then the smh article posts the same the following morning. Im thinking either im bang on with the mail or his camp is leaking stories to ensure flanno plays him at Fb.

I wouldve said Thompson wasnt a fullback either earlier on in the season.
TBH I havent paid much attention to the sharks or VH, lets see how he goes in the one jumper the next few games while Dugans out

Bottom line...Holmes is a yard in front of anything we have now
He will not be at the club anytime soon or at all IMO ....we as supporters can only wish this caliber of player were coming on board he is a real athlete.

Firstly thanks for passing on what you hear mate. I occasionally get passed some info as well but never pass it on as with all this stuff, it changes in a heart beat and alot on this forum basically call you a liar from moment one.


The good about this is we are considered a place to go. I also think homes has a bit of x factor, pace and size. I think it would be a great get

I agree, I say it’s all pie in the sky talk myself, but you never know one day one of these rumours might actually come true although pigs might fly. I just think the player agents use us as a tool to get their message out there
