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.
