He’s had his chance and failed to grab it.
We have no specialist fullback and goal kicker and he can’t make it.

Tui hasn’t been that bad just average and you can’t have average players in the 1, 7,9 jerseys in the NRL.
100% agree, can't believe some people thought he wasn't dropped, Thompson now has his chance, lets see how he goes,
Go hard or go home

Thompson is a weapon. We need to sign a specialist fullback next year as he is more effective on the wing. Great finisher and gets involved when he wants to. Need a bigger body with speed at fullback.

the problem with Lalohea is that (in the current form) he is not the answer to either FB or goal kicking:
- even in the ISP we have a better FB -> Haleta, in FG, Thompson > Lalohea
- Drinkwater is best goal kicker @ WT

And if we don't want to choose 2nd best option:

-FG FB -> Thompson

-our best answer to the goal kicker question (ATM) is Drinkwater

So discussion shall be: where we play Drinkwater, as he is the best goal kicker at WT, not 'where we play Lolohea?'

Drinkwater doesn't have an NRL contract so it's no problem at all...

He plays ISP..

That's a bit rich coming from you Lol.
There were quite a lot of people who gave you great reasons why JT was wrong for the club, holding the club back, me I hated him, I partied hard when he got sacked, 18 months too late though.
But everyone else was genuine in their disapproval of JT, you were a rusted on lover and couldn't or wouldn't see it, now you are doing the same with Tui.

Nailed it!
How do you know?
Youve only been here a couple of months

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

I posted earlier today that I was a fan of a Tui. I thought he showed enough last year to suggest he would have X-factor. But for whatever reason it’s not happening. Maybe he’s just not a fullback. If it’s halves he’s after - forget it. I reckon there are 5 in front of him.

Drinkwater never got a shot at first grade at the tigers. It was little john that got preference
I always thoght he was better. I think he is NRL level. If i was a coach with moses in my team i would sign drinkwater.

Tui could be a star if he played physical. He simply plays way too soft to be a genuine first grader. This guy would destroy teams if he played with the same physical attitude of Thompson, Nofo, MWZ, Naqaima etc. I fear he just hasn't gott hat mongrel in him though. I cant think of many current NRL players who can get away without playing tough. Even every halfback in the comp plays more physical than Tui. It's a shame, because he is such a talent.

Tui did himself a massive disservice with the game he had yesterday in my opinion. It's a shame because I really like the guy but he isn't putting in 100%.

We can only assume atm that things just arent right with Tui....he has shown that he has that x factor needed to compete at NRL level,wether he is unfit physically,is lazy or in my opinion he has a niggling injury that he cant overcome...it wont matter if he plays his way out of this space or sits on the sidelines,he has to work hard at getting back to his best or he has let a lot of us Tui supporters down....I think he may come good,when that happens we will have to wait and see....he definately has to get his confidence back...

I can’t see why some are surprised that he’s not up to first grade,
Tui is simply doing what he’s done ever since he came into the NRL.
Why do they think that the Warriors didn’t want him.

He just doesnt get it.

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.

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

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.
