I don’t think there has ever been one Pommy outside back that has ever made an impact in the NRL.

Never been a big fan of the guy. Lazy in defence...lazy attacker....average footballer (so shoot me).
If you want a FB, get Jonny Lomax from St Helens who would fit in perfectly to our side.
Otherwise, there is very few FB out there that you can go an grab although I do like the look of Tom Opacic or Jamayne Isaako....however I would pump for Jonny tbh.
What's his contract status Chip? We are looking to the UK atm apparently to fill a final spot or 2. Not sure the aim is as high as a Lomax, but it may be.
Contract finishes end of 2019....the guy can is great at FB and can fill in at halves. I am just struggling to see who else you could get at FB. Even the young blokes there is nothing outstanding that i can see.

Am very wary of the superleague. I remember superstars like Sam Tompkins, Joe Burgess and Jordan Rankin doing pretty average impressions of an NRL player.
Sam Tomkins fair enough....Joe Burgess is a decent winger and Jordan Rankin was a bog average reserve grader in Oz and is still bog average. Liam Farrell from Wigan would be great in our team as would Liam Watkins from Leeds.
Most pommy forwards go pretty good back home.
Jack Walker from leeds is a young guy who looks okay also.

I don't think we have to assume he will be stuck in reggies.

Watched the ISP game today and he was hopeless.

Still can't see the so-called x factor he has.

Looks overweight and lazy. Time to hand in his bus ticket
Unfortunately, I agree. I am disappointed in Tui. He just doesn't look anything like he did when he had that break out year for the Warriors in 2016. No speed, no power, no confidence. He is clearly overweight, and that knee might still be troubling him, but, to be honest, I'm starting to wonder if he will ever get in shape or get back to his earlier form. He's only 22 but how long do the Tigers wait?

Can only see him making his was back as an outside back now.

He just doesnt get it.
Outside backs are meant to be quick.

He's a 5/8

Here is a video of Tui at his peak with the Warriors in 2016 .... at the 16 sec mark there is a frontal of him and what he looks like when in shape. There is little comparison to the one we saw yesterday in the ISP.



Interestingly enough he has obviously put in some really hard work in changing his kicking style now he must apply himself to get into shape.

The good thing is that he still has age on his side, at 23 you couldn’t write someone completely off, so let’s hope in a few months if the opportunity comes back he will be fitter, faster and ready to rumble.
Tigers for 2022!

None of those names are modern. In the last 20 years there's been no one.

Apart from Sam Tomkins no top Pommy backs have come out recently

Wardle is primarily a back rower isn't he

And the Penrith bloke who now has been done for drugs in the ESL

Hardaker. Add Joe Burgess. They are among the best players in England and regularly picked for the test team, but were fringe NRL 1st graders.
