    Thompson will spend time in reserve grade this year, Hayne won't.
    Why will Thompson? He has been deadset excellent this year playing both wing and fullback. He isnt going anywhere IMO
    The big difference between the two (besides their obvious talent levels), is Thompson actually looks like he wants to be there when he is on the field.

    So freakin annoying, could easily have and should have been the best ever. More naturally gifted than any player I've ever seen. Such a wasted talent.

    Personally, I dont think he made anyone better around him in their GF run. He did it on pure individual skill alone - off the back of Moi moi charges and mateo offloads

    In origin - yep he was NSW best player, but he was also put in the position to score that try - we had the morris boys busting themselves making tackles and so on. He might have been the difference, but he certainly didnt do it alone.

    He is all about individual glory - and that i reckon, is part of the reason he tried to get into the nfl. its a sport that relies so heavily on individual talent and americans are so much about their individual player stats its not funny.

    Its why someone like Gutherson - who is no where near as talented as hayne, but his work ethic and this team first attitude get him the spot. Hayne is just happy collecting his cash, and will prob fuck off to french rugby or some shit next year when no one here will pay him more than 300k or something

    I'd play for a bloke like Ennis who has little natural ability but busts his arse over a Hayne who is born talented and doesn't put in. Ask anyone who has played the game and the answer would be the same.

    1 year doesn't make a career.

    I just think he will. When the wheels start to fall of at the Tigers, which they will, a few will play Reggie's, and I feel Thompson is the type of guy that might. I could be wrong though.

    jeez I dont think so, I think his value is getting higher and higher.
    Nofo, MWZ, and prob Fonua & Kev prov all drop out of the side before Thompson if there is a form slump.

    That would mean bringing in Lolo and he seems to be on the nose with Cleary for some reason

    Hope so, I'm tired of seeing his defensive lapses but wasn't he rumoured to have signed in England last year? Its a contract year so maybe manager is trying to talk him up

    It was an off season release, so it seems to be back on the radar. Good luck to him if he gets extra coin as long as it's not from us. I doubt if we would even re-sign.

    Mbye rumoured to be on his way to us Tigers before June 30 and the best part is the Dogs are paying about 200K of it. I like this signing if true but as for the Brian Kelly signing I don't like, whose place will he take, I don't think he is that good anyway.

    Kelly Egan has said we're after a prop, edge backrower and utility for next season. Was fullback and centre as well but they looked to be signed now.

    Lolohea probably drops back to ressies, Mbye to fullback. Nofa and Thompson stay on wings.

    Masters and Fonua will most likely be centres but with Brian Kelly coming next year things might change
