Toovey for NRL CEO
Probably the best game I've seen him play so far
That was API's misread. Tom did everything possible to compensate for it. Thompson looked like he was on one leg tonight too. Lucky we have Lane Winterstein Brown and the JetSki as back up after sironens injury.He started badly in defence with the faders try under the posts ... but boy he has made up for it in attack
He's 21 FFS! How many players EVER have been finished products at 21? Elements of this thread include some of the worst rubbish I've read on Silvertails.
Can we all agree that Matt Dufty would never be able to do what Tom did tonight? Not in a million years...even after 10 years of first grade, I don't think we could ever see Dufty single handedly destroy an opposition like Tom did tonight?! He'd need to learn to pass first and maybe put on an extra 20kg and 16cm of height.
Have a close listen to Gus...I don't think he rates Dufty much...he mentions that he was a prolific try scorer in the NYC but that is about as far as he goes with the compliments. I have heard a number of veiled swipes at Dufty's lack of a passing game and his overly light frame.What's the bet tomorrow that if its Warren and Gould commentating down in Wollongong, every time Dufty makes a run they'll bang on like he's Churchill reborn.
The reality is that as a fullback he's like a winger. He doesn't set them up, he's on the end of it benefiting from the good work of others......kinda like Valentine Holmes as a fullback.
