If AD does sign with the tigers as FB, you all think CT could do the hooker role?
Has some pace, and could provide some much needed speed from dummy half, may not be a sizable figure but I believe he is a little bit taller than cook, so I don’t think his size will be an issue, passing game from dummy half isn’t that hard for a first grade footballer, may lack a bit defensively but he did take out some big guys last year at FB.
Just a thought.

Latrell has gone against everything he initially asked for, if he signs with the bunnies (which it looks like he will)
I hope his career goes south (Pun Intended)
Tigers offered him everything he wanted, with the addition of a true potential legacy.
Our boys may not have the accolades most brag about, but our boys Have heart, hopefully that’s enough to get the W against the bunnies when we meet them.
Our tigers forum may often dispute and critique heavily, but it shows we have heart.
Good riddance Latrell, be sure to wear that red nose proudly.

So Roosters waive 200k in fees if LM signs with us
That’s 500k-600k he’d lose in 2020 by signing with Souths
Still reckon we can get him, hopefully Madge and Pascoe are taking advantage of the situation

The next 7 days should be pretty interesting
We just really need that 1 marquee signing to get the ball rolling. If we can sign LM you’d think that would all but guarantee JAC as well who will be granted a release at the end of 2020 at the latest
Plus COE next year with a tonne of cap money to spend

With all that advantage to us it would be pretty poor result if he didn’t sign, but he seems to be doing everything but sign with us.

We have said we are not calling him again…

Modern players won’t do the begging…we should be on the phone and proactive.

Imagine if the Clippers sat there and said ‘Kawhi can call us if he wants to chat’?

All these agents follow the American model. I don’t necessarily subscribe to it, but it is reality.

Pick up the phone, be aggressive…sell the Tigers message…sell us as a place a player would want to come…

Don’t just say ‘well, they can call us if they want’.

This is the harsh reality, we should hit him up and offer the dollars (Again) with an added legacy.
If we make the top 8 or even win the finals within 1-3 years this will Potentially make LM look like an immortal.
It would be very interesting to see who would join the tigers after signing Latrell and possibly JAC.
Tigers need to go all in, and Latrell needs to see the potential.

We’ve gone from a “Latrell will be training with the bunny’s on Monday” to a “Latrell rejects bunny’s offer” within a 24 hour period.
Welcome to the circus bunny fans.

He was a fill in

And that is in your own words and I don’t recall anyone here saying that he doesn’t fill that role well, nor give his all to it. Surely all supporters don’t want a fill in playing at the back, unless of course he is doing just that, filling in.

Mbye was meant to be the fullback, Thomo filled in and then replaced Mbye at the role For the remainder of the season, how is someone saying he is an awful fullback NOT saying he didn’t fill the fullback role well?
Saying he is an awful fullback implies that he filled the role terribly.
IMO, he played well, added some X-Factor and showed his pure class as a footballer.
Yes I said he was a fill in, that is because he was, by all means, I’m not saying he should be our long term fullback, just saying that he filled the position when asked in a pretty decent fashion, now ppl want to compare him to other specialist fullbacks, and label him the worst fullback in the NRL, it’s Disrespectful, immature and just ridiculous.

Yes he is a fill in! Going into a season with 50% of your spine players being fill ins shows poor planning and is a recipe for a wooden spoon!

That’s irrelevant to what I initially said.

As you have said he is a fill in at fullback, that means he is not a good fullback, if he was a good fullback than he wouldn’t be a fill in he would just be a fullback!

Your logic is laughable.

It is terrible that we are heading into the season with Thompson as our fullback is all that I am saying! It was an area we needed to improve, we had the money and we still have Thompson playing there who will try is best but is at his ceiling in the position!

I’m not denying the fact that a specialist fullback or A high Potential talent is needed for the position, all I’m saying is that Corey Thompson wasn’t an awful fullback.
Your last comment sounded like you were saying that any out of position player (fill in) is destined to be awful.
Thompson is generally a winger, and a reliable one, in time he very well could be a reliable fullback.
A player like Latrell could add a lot more, but Thompson wasn’t bad at fullback, again, it’s just my opinion.
Moving on, Latrell rejects souths offer, what’s your thoughts on this?

I actually love having Thompson in our squad and he is a reliable and extremely hard working who has got the most out of his skills, I just think we needed to do better this off season with the money we have!

I agree with you there mate.

I like the guy, heaping praise on his application and have no major problem with his contract extension for his back up role if not too much above minimum. I don’t think he is an awful player, but that doesn’t change that the fact that some people on here are championing him to be our starting fullback and many others think that is an awful choice or option.

Anyone saying Corey Thompson is an awful fullback needs to watch more football, because one should know he isn’t a specialist fullback, therefore would admire his talent, and yes even as a fullback- I seriously loved watching him play in that position.
Then to compare him to other specialist fullback is just silly.
Should he be our long term fullback? No, we need a specialist fullback but in saying that I feel it’s unfair to Corey to have him judged against specialist fullbacks, I wouldn’t be upset if he was our fullback for the up coming season, I feel he would show improvement.
