    Great news about Thompson.

    No doubt the bondi rorters will b attempting to entice Esan to the dark side offering a truckload of cash.

    Geez I hope we retain this kid on a long term deal.

    Whilst I take what he says with a grain of salt, Matty Johns was asked to name his 3 best players from the first 4 rounds yesterday. Thompson was one of them. I genuinely wonder if he is a Smokey for a QLD spot?

    Thompson is quickly become a fan favourite, but where is his best position?

    Matty 90% of the time is an idiot but canโ€™t argue with that right there

    I reckon on the wing but I think he is our best fullback atm as well. Could you play him in the centres ? That would suit us because we could move Kev on.

    I am being harsh on Kev though. He has been really good. Running over Moses deserves extra points.

    Yes I think wing, (wished he had another couple of feet in height though:)), but he seems to be the back up for the backline (with Marshal), so he will always be in the 17.

    I like him better at fullback. I think he's a touch too short to play on the wing. If he comes up against a tall winger he will be exposed

    I like him better at FB to.

    Hes a conundrum. He wants to play FB and plays better with a number 1 on his back. He gets more open field ball that way.

    BUT is he a premiership winning FB? Probably not.

    Would love him to make 2 or 5 his.
