I think it's unrealistic to put expectations on Laurie and even if we get him I think Mbye will get the nod at the fullback position.
The thing is if Mbye can't catch again we need to replace him with someone who can catch the footy and we really need a backup so I hope we get Laurie.
I don't think the expectations on Laurie are too high. All I want from a fullback in attack is someone with a bit of pace to run off the hip of the ball carrier in attack, just like Matt Dufty. I don't know what happened to Mbye in 2019, but he simply refused to do it.
