Though I'm sure he will still harbor childhood dreams of being an All-Black, DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE.
Tell that to Cappy, sure RTS will make an impact and continue to be amazing BUT one injury and Cappy will be exposed again.Anyone thinking he's going to catalyst us to better things are kidding themselves.
Agreed. Fact is he's already won his Premiership Ring. He's 1 World cup away from the set. His Golden Boot is in the mail for this year already.This is what erks me about RTS. He's not coming here with a goal in mind to help the Warriors change. He's coming to earn a paycheck and find this way into the AB's.

on attack - it'd be great. on defence - the opposition would run at him all day every day... nullifying his attack when he's making 30 tackles a game...IMO Sam Tomkins playing fullback was the worst positional decision ever... Maybe in super league he goes alright out the back, but in the NRL, he's too small...
We should have had two full seasons with him at half back... Would have been awesome...
Hey, no sports player moves to any club (whichever club, whichever tournament, whichever sport) for any other reason than because it suits them. The PR spin will make you think Messi stays at Barcelona because of the coach/setup/whatever but it's because it suits him at this point in time. The minute he wants a change, it's goodbye Barca!!So Luke's coming home to be close to family....RTS coming home to be an All Black...Anyone who wants to play for the warriors?
SJ always talks about how he grew up wanting to play for the Warriors. Now he's in a position where his absence has caused the team to collapse into a stinking heap... Not only is he playing for us, but he's our best player... There's one dream come true right there...So Luke's coming home to be close to family....RTS coming home to be an All Black...Anyone who wants to play for the warriors?
He's an energizer bunny...you cant teach that, it's something you're born with, so he'll keep running his guts out because thats how he plays.Should we be worried about rts turning to mud? He talks about the nutritionist and conditioning staff altering his workout and eating plan everyday. Do we have people in place like that at the club that can devote that much energy into a player.
Love the enthusiasm and agree on most points you make however I believe the coach will determine how well the team performs, a team of champs or a champion team?SJ always talks about how he grew up wanting to play for the Warriors. Now he's in a position where his absence has caused the team to collapse into a stinking heap... Not only is he playing for us, but he's our best player... There's one dream come true right there...
Lets not forget that RTS, Luke, SJ and TL are 4/5ths of the first choice Kiwi's spine, and the kiwi's are currently No.1... If that had nothing to do with their decision to move here then I'm a blind goat eating old 90's clothes out of a recycling bin...
I personally think Luke is going to make a huge difference to our squad... How much? Too much! How meke? Tumeke!
I have a mate in Wigan and he cannot understand why we didn't play him in the halves, he reckons its his natural position.It would have been good to have seen Tomkins in the halves during his stint here. The appeal would have been with him paired up with Johnson and having that speed on both sides of the ruck.
We don't have the posters from Wigan on here as often as we did when we first signed Tomkins. They'd be able to confirm why Maguire moved him too fullback. Was his defence too weak for the front like or was it just to get the best use out of him on attack? It's probably a combination but the Wigan posters would be able to confirm his defence in the front line; at fullback it seems to be get his body in front of the ball carrier anyway he can.
Having Tomkins at fullback has given us the tip on plays to free up our outside backs, It's hard to remember now that we have fallen apart since Johnson's injury and Tomkins is playing with a gamee knee.
