maybe its just to get some basic fitness into him and he will do stints at FB anyway
Because let’s face it he’s played **** all footy in 2 years !!

I seriously worry about Tommy Tissue , you just know every time he runs out he’s a second away from another injury.

Must be frustrating for him , the club , the coaching staff because it certainly is for us fans.

Yes, I saw that mentioned somewhere.

The thinking was that there's less running to do at centre (so it'll ease him back in)
Manly still get the Tom 'assistance', and
He's played there for Aust. (I think it said that).

It's not like he would play legit centre anyway..
He played centre In origin and scored 3 trys. 1 contesting a kid and stealing the ball (like a fullback)
And 2 tries pushing up the middle as a support runner (like a fullback)

Maybe not letting him catch kicks and launch his body into the defensive line 10 times a game but still have him roaming around in attack isn't such a bad idea

Im alright to see him at centre with Dylan Walker and Koula at full back. Our backline suddenly had speed and skill again. Because we have Des and he will keep Walker at full back.. thats a no from me.

better play him outside foran though . play his outside dce and he has a huge chance of getting injured again by either cooling down from no use or hospital passes

Total workload at centre would be reduced but there will be a time where Tom is required to go at 100% no matter where we hide him. If he is not right, leave him out. If we must risk him to save our season then it should be at fullback only.

Hmmmm

A centre at fullback
A fullback at centre
A 5/8 at hooker with a 5/8 as his backup
A 5/8 in the second row
A front rower in the second row (potentially)

And we're dead last on the ladder. Who could have figured that out??

Not that he’s always right, but Wacko’s Whispers is predicting Turbo could return this week at centre where there is less running required.

It’s in the DT early mail.

I personally like the idea. We need him on the field and if playing centre let’s him ease into it and reduces the chance of re-injury then do it
What have I been saying wankers whispers my asse he hacked me
