    Ive seen a recent pic of him on social media and to me, he looked much slimmer in the face.

    This kid rocked up to Manly at +120kg. Trimmed down to +110kg.
    To me, he looks slimmer than that so hopefully he is back to the weight that saw him burst onto the scene at the Tigers.

      Same here, i played A grade for Narrabeen at 17 and later on first grade cricket on the central coast.
      My reluctance to go to training prevented me from going any farther in either sport

        Last year Tom had the 2nd highest number of run metres for the club .... and the 3rd highest number of runs/hit-ups ...... he is one very fit player ..... but even the fitest will have moments of the game when they push themselves to the limit ..... and Tom does that weekly ...

        PSS .. Incidently Kapow lead both those stats. Jake was 2nd highest for the number of runs .... however unlike Kapow, Tom doesn't get a rest ...

          I'm with you here. Having a real preseason under his belt in reasonable shape under Donny, Des n co will have him in the best shape of his life. The kid is still growing. I think he will finally show what the hype is about.

            I really hope so. The hype on him must have been based on talent and athleticism that can be regained. If Des and Donny can help him to become the legitimate starting centre everyone thought he was going to be, that will really bolster our backline.

              Whilst Tom has those stats it does not mean he doesn't blow his pop off valve before full time. Far too often he will get in and do a 1 dummy half run on the 3rd or 4th tackle that is not needed when he should be back in position for his attacking skills. His personal 80 minute management needs improvement.

                That's exactly my point .... it is his trying to do everything that is the problem ... not his fitness ..... he could be 20% fitter, and under his current game management he would still push himself to the limit and run himself into the ground ....

                            Aaaah.... the old I was drunk in Bali excuse hey. That’s a line which has served me well over the years... It’s very flexible too... you can pretty much insert any location on the end of the sentence and it will still hold up. However, the more exotic locations do have a tendency to be Better received. The I was pissed at the Bankstown RSL line won’t earn you as much grace as Bali or Bangkok, that’s for sure.
