RE: Corey Thompson
But we have a 6 ft 6 winger in reserve grade that could be anything. If Tommos manager wants to overprice him then unfortunately he has to go no matter how much you like him
Whats his 60 and 100m times?
It’s Kane Bradley and I’m not his sprint coach but he covers the ground well.
Do you know Corey’s 60 and 100m times?
Just think that if we’re going to let Thomo go, it better be for a tackle busting flyer who’s safe as safes.
And that’s the thing. Thompson has been a great buy for us but if we’re replacing him with someone better, then so be it.
There’s others I’d let go of first to make that big signing and still retain Thommo.
I agree mate but the problem is they aren’t off contract. If we had a choice, we would be keeping Thompson over Momorovski, Fonua, Mbye, Jennings, Nofolomu and maybe Masters. The problem is these guys are signed for another 1-2 years each.
If they were all off contract, it would be different. The positive thing is Maguire is really thinking carefully about who he signs, unlike Cleary who just threw a long contract to anyone. Imagine what the guys mentioned above are thinking if Corey just didn’t get a contract straight up. They must be thinking they have to lift big time or they’ll be shown the door next year.
I would offer Corey a basic contract, but if he wants to look elsewhere, then so be it, theres a lot that we lack and Thompson is good but he is replaceable.
I thought Fonua was off contract this year?
Wests Tigers players off contract 2019…
Josh Aloiai, Michael Chee-Kam, Robbie Farah, Mahe Fonua, Tyson Gamble, Chris Lawrence, Jacob Liddle, Benji Marshall, Thomas Mikaele, Robbie Rochow, Corey Thompson
Thompson, Rowdy and Aloiai should be extended…
RE: Nathan Cleary should be dropped by Penrith coach and dad Ivan, says Gorden Tallis

RE: Ryan Papenhuyzen
@Geo Well gee, he must really be a dud. The reality might start to slap some of our supporters in face when he becomes the next Storm fullback. Hughes is a fill in, one of those players who transitions between QLD Cup and NRL. We have lost another excellent player following on from Korobeite and JAC.
huh…don’t think anyone said he’s a dud…I think Hughes will end up in the halves…Papnhuyzen will get the FB spot…we should Target Drinkwater…who was tipped to be the FB before season ending injury.
