To follow up on my previous comments on Laurie

Souths : Latrell is better
Manly : Turbo is better
Titans : Brimson is better
Parra :Gutherson is better
Storm :papenhuyzen is better
Cowboys :Drinkwater is better
Newcastle : Ponga is better
Penrith :Edwards is better
Brisbane :Walsh is better
Roosters : Tedesco is better
Sharks :Kennedy is better
Saints :Ramsay is probably equal
Warriors : CNK is probably equal
Raiders : Savage/ Rapana is probably equal
Bulldogs : Laurie is probably better than Kiraz
Redcliffe how crap is this ..they don't have an official site yet lol

Best case 12/13 out of 17 ......
That's right daine Laurie is one of the worst fullbacks in the NRL. I'd give Staines the fullback spot.

Notice that neither our halves nor our fullback have been signed past next season. Obviously there’s a reason for that. We’ll play 2023 with the incumbents and if they don’t earn an extension they will be replaced. Sheens is making the changes that are needed.

They’ll have to make some calls. The distraction that these contracts will create could harm our chances.

...ahead of you....
Seen it all too often over the decades. Natural talent can only get you so far, scoot through the juniors with talent to burn, easy isnt it? Then when you have to lift to the next level, the heart just isnt there.
Maybe ....as you said...his natural talent has gotten him as far as he can go.
Its pretty pissweak really to claim he has no heart when you have no idea thats the case
They all cant be Slater or Teddy

I like it. Think it says have a dig or your gone
If they show value we have the cash to pay but opens us up to upgrade if someone better comes along

I actually think he’s got heart, and when he’s in a game he plays above his weight. What he seems to lack is the desire to be in the game more, and for the full 80 mins. He is still learning to play at the back and has a way to go truthfully, but it may be that the physical requirement needed to play hard for 80 minutes week in week out is too much for him. It may simply be his genes letting him down, his size and weight. If he puts on too much bulk he’ll likely lose agility and speed.
On the other hand Hodgo wasn’t any bigger!!

I don't think he'll ever be elite, but Laurie is underrated here. He's very consistent under the high ball, he's good defensively and he has good passing skill and instinct.

He needs to work on his support play and he's not super fast or big physically, which is why I'd say he'll never be elite, but he's had periods taking hitups and looking active around the ruck where it looks like he's stepped up a gear.

If he gets behind a good forward pack I'd say he could become very good.

Fullbacks often pick up big metres gained when they have a bit of space on kick returns, where the tigers back three usually catch the ball under pressure due to forward packs getting rolled, so Laurie's stats don't often look great.

Again though, I don't see any particular weakness in his play and it would take a very good player to unseat him.

Last time our 1,6 and 7 were unsigned, they were Teddy, Moses and Brooks. We chose wrong.

💯 his strengths are his running, ball playing, and one-on-one tackling. Weaknesses...reading the opposition offensive patterns. 5/8 is his best position. Played it for Penrith reserves. Wonder how his body will hold up having to make 30 tackles a game.
