Im sold. 1:45 he actually has more toe than I thought.

There has never been any doubt in my mind about his ability,his attitude at times is a concern as he gives away many dumb penalties.Perhaps playing alongside his brother and under Madges guidance he could improve his control on the field.We need a man of his ability and i feel he would be worth the risk as he can certainly play.
To be honest i feel he would be more value to us than LM would have been as he is a “full on” player where LM is a far better player in patches but you dont seem to get them as often

I think AJ would be the best option , rate him on wing… where would thompson go

Penrith apparently

I’d be pretty surprised to see Thompson leave. He’s a very handy player who isn’t on a lot of money. If we get Doueihi or Johnston you’d think he’d get one of the wing spots.

I wouldn’t wanna see him tossed aside. What’re the chances of Madge taking a tiny winger/fullback and turning him into a 9? Didn’t he do it with Cook?

Thompson’s weakest part of his game is his passing, don’t think he’d work at 9 at all. He’s a winger through and through imo.

I feel he’s exposed a lil more on the wing because he’s constantly facing up against Tupou, Oates, Vunivalu, Ferguson, Maumalo and Fusitua type players.

Especially so with the new rule that now protects all all players in the air, instead of just the defensive ones. All shorter defenders will struggle with this change.

Yep Nofo is in a heap of trouble also with this rule change. I really don’t like it and expect to see a number of penalty tries awarded because of it!

I certainly agree with the penalty try scenario.It wont take long for the coaches to start abusing it

Some caller on 2sm reported this arvo Corey Thompson to Penrith…anyone heard anything about this
B
Most callers on 2SM are already six schooners deep by this point. I used to listen to Talkin’ Bulldogs for a laugh but it’s beyond that now.

Absolutely shocking show - gave up on them ages ago. I can’t stand listening to know all Tunks - he waffles on as though he is in the know and he hasn’t got a clue.

Tunks is a spanner. The golf day where Blocker and Tunks were both speakers, Blocker told funny stories and got laughs, Tunks bitched about how much money players make now and how soft they are.

Who remembers when Blocker played his first reserve grade game at Leichhardt? Tunks played for Souths and the first scrum that went down Tunks tried to put it on Blocker who stood and belted Tunks. After they were both sent off the Ground Announcer asks if Mr Roach could come to the dressing room (to cool Blocker down).

The best part of that for me was when they both going up the tunnel after being sent off i was sitting at halfway opposite the grandstand Blocker was still fuming and wanted to hammer him.Tunks literally couldnt get to the safety of the dressing room quick enough.
Some memories live with you forever

News is AJ wants to see out his contract with Souths and is determined to stay put. Let’s see how that works out for him. On the other hand Marwene Hiroti is very keen. He’s on a train and trial with the Sharks but his preference is the Tigers, most likely more opportunities.

Yes please to Hiroti he is young and keen and would work his way to the top 17

The longer the game went on the more annoyed Kohli got.By the end of the game he was spitting chips no doubt worried about what the Indian press would be saying.I honestly thought he was going to cry when his appeals failed

There was one appeal against Finch that he should be facing the ICC for …he carried on for at least a minute afterwards

I doubt very much if that will happen the Indian cricket board basically control the ICC because it is their main source of income

To me the Eels have got a hide not releasing him. Regardless of timeframes, they have taken our best player from 2019 who still had 2 years left on his contract. Now they want to stop this kid coming early to us, at the same time lessening what he can earn this year. Come on Eels - a bit of dignity please!

Mate they have none, you are appealing to absolutely the wrong club and wrong fanbase. Even Doggies fans have a little bit of dignity and self-awareness.

Parra club and fans are on their own disillusioned planet of self-righteousness and entitlement. Worst club in the NRL.

I put parra on a par with souffs the scum of the earth

Players have to be moved on before signing anyone that puts you over the Cap. Not even South’s can get away with that

On the Souths’ forum, a poster is suggesting the Titans want Amone in exchange for releasing Arrow. We need to make sure all our forwards are locked up tight, even our young prop who played for Fiji. Do not be surprised if they try to come calling for a replacement from us if this exchange occurs.

They are welcome to take McQueen and Packer off our hands

Tigers actively looking for a top line centre as a point of need now (that’s from with-in the organisation) Content with forward pack.

Don’t believe you. Most of your other supposed inside info hasn’t eventuated.

Momo was a revelation at centre last year, and if you can believe Benji, Talau is the most exciting player at the club. Mbye is also strong at centre, so why do we need a centre as a priority?

Again have it all in written form. Can post pics if mods allow it

I can’t believe you’re still here.

Should we go through it?

  1. LM will be at Tigers training come 6th Jan (think you claimed JAC too)
  2. LM will not be at Souths
  3. Souths can’t fit LM in without offloading one/both of Gagai and AJ

Just the recent ones I remember.

All his posts remind me of my sister in law. Don’t believe a word she says but every now and then you get caught and kick yourself in hindsight

In his defence it was later reported the Latrell had agreed to come to the Tigers but ended up getting talked out of it (by his ‘advisors’ letting him flush hundreds of thousands of dollars down the toilet).
Regards Souths fitting him in?
Plenty of smoke and mirrors going on there … I still think they’ll shed a few players.
Makes you wonder why blokes want to play under Bennett… all the horsecrap about being a ‘players coach’ and ‘caring about their welfare’ - as he punts them.

It happens. Tigers thought they had him. The SB medical retirement changed things though tigers still thought they were favs to land him

I think Bennett has actually lost it . It’s also not an uncommon theory in League circles.

Interesting to see what happens if their (Souths) 2020 replicates the previous season… it’s all feeling very Newcastle circa ‘13/14

Wayne is trying to buy a premiership. It’s day has past him. Still a Good coach. But he needs elite talent to be successful these days. If brad Arthur or say a flanagan had the Souths roster they would be a lot better served

Ahh that’s just sour grapes. Every team needs elite talent to be successful.

Sure I think Bennett’s coaching is old school, but for a guy that’s “lost it”, he just lured the most promising up and coming forward and the best centre in the game.
Wish our coach/management would lose it like that!!

Think you will fing rusty had more to with that in regards to Arrow(his partner a model) and LM s family support souffs
