A lot of players dropped balls last night, so I won’t judge Thommo on this game alone. He’s been so good at FB in the past, so I’ll put it down to an off handling night.
Sorry I don’t think that’s right, he dropped too many last night and several last week too. As @WeHaveCheeKam said, it’s something like 5 bombs in 2 weeks and mostly they were uncontested. Add to last week failing to defuse the Raiders short kicks either.
He’s a good lad Thompson but frankly I expect the more consistent game time he gets at FB, the more the cracks in his game are shown up. He’s a good backup option but you want to bring in quality at FB.
Agree he had a bad game with his hands, but there were 12 errors last night by our guys…Thompson wasn’t the only one who dropped the ball. That’s all I was saying.
Would I like to see a quality fullback in the team. Absolutely!, but my point is, given this years squad, who else do you put there? We can only work with what we have. Mbye is just as bad under the high ball.
