    Shouldnt be hard, all Mary has to do is have no input, just tell Leilua to do his thing on the field.

    Manly were looking at him, but i think its all on hold until the Pearce saga is finalised as Manly are looking to sign him up. Haven’t heard any other clubs who are after him.

    Have always had a wrap on Thommo.Even thought he was Captain material but once they or their managers thoughts are ;looking at long term monies else where , they are not wholly focused on the Club they are playing and signed for another twelve months. Now he is being mucked around by Manly as they chase the elite signing of Pearce or Moylan.. Regrettably best to gently advise him to move on ,,perhaps the Knights ..

    I agree, for the sake of a player who does everything for his club and community the game needs to look after him and I really hope he is able to either get his future settled with the Dragons or find a new club and long term contract elsewhere quickly!

    I believe that Thompson scored 8 tries
    this year so I would suggest that we let him see out his contract if he does not get a contract from another club.

    I agree 100 percent.
    With everything the clib does wrong, and I cant believe In saying this, they may (and I mean just may) be correct on this issue.

    I speaking to our rep and he has tols me that Leila has been doing extra sessions in the off season witj his own private trainer....good signs that he is ready to step up.

    Between him and Host, my bet is Host is the next big thing, but I wouldn't mind being wrong!

    Hope both fill their potential with us. Also both will show us in the next two years if they can. My moneys on Host , he has a big body but now it should be a mans body and he has the smarts to go with it.

    Joel Thompson was at Dragons training today so that’s a good sign he will be staying. I saw a photo on Twitter of him at training.
