The issue the club has with Laurie is his immaturity and hi ability to read the defence….they want to see him “grow up”… and take his footy more seriously…
The elite fullbacks do extras after training and keep a solid gym routine during off season … Laurie keeps his tik tok active and spends hours on Instagram live (if you follow him on social media you’d know what I’m talking about)

I’m guessing that’s what you mean by immaturity

💯 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.
If our 5/8 is making 30 tackles a game we will run last again.

That all makes sense. Hopefully he doesn’t rock up to the COE in a Panthers jersey.

I would like to see how Laurie goes behind a decent forward pack as IMO he will kill it.
Considering what was in front of him this year he did ok.. Even Teddy would of struggled behind what we had.

Even Tedesco, Marshall, Farah and Simona struggled behind our girls, forward pack is a too strong word for them.

Yeah teddy was just about the best player in the world when he was on our team. Only issue he had was overplaying a little bit. But you can't blame him with very limited outside back
Also everyone marked up on him, as he was pretty much our only weapon! Shits me to death when they wax lyrically about how the roosters made him into the player he is now. Only difference to him now at the cocks is he has better team mates that take the heat of him!

What about Koroibete?
There was games where it looked like our game plan was just to pass it to him every time and hope he does something. 😂

I just can't understand why people and maybe the coach don't rate Laurie as a potential attacking fullback.
From what I've seen so far he's a brave fella, has a bit of toe and he and AD looked like our only attacking success before they both got injured.
When he appears lazy I think it's more of lacking confidence and inexperience..... confidence will come with more game time and good coaching.
Then he comes back from that injury and plays in a dreadful side.
Now we want to strip him from fullback and throw him into a position that requires quick decision making and is one of the linchpins to most plays....let him learn his trade at the back and with an improved forward pack I'm confident he'll be a goodin.
Lets not completely bleed what's left of our talent in this rebuild.
Staines will be fast on the wing to replace Ken or backup fullback.
Just my gut feelings. 🤔

round 1 backline
1. Staines
2. Nofo
3. Naden
4. Douhie
5. Ken M
6. Laurie
7. Brooks
Staines FB. Didn't think of that. Wondered where he would fit given Nofo and Ken are class wingers these days.

Now that would be Sheensiuses.

But we need to rake risks like that.

There has been some light weight champion fullbacks over time brother,
Ryan Papenhuyzen, Brett Hodgson, Matt Bowen, come to mind.
He is still developing and judging by a recent pic sporting an athletic bod, he would eventually resemble someone like Darius Boyd type of player imo.
