Definitely a better pick up than Tamou - only made bang on 100m last three games combined, and still under 200 if you add the game before that in too (which was a win against his old side)
I thought he was a good deal at the price he signed for and probably isn't helped by overall garbage team but hard to believe of the two 32 year olds he is the one with 12 tests to his name

Took the early plea and will miss this week. I guess we might see the return of Royce Hunt.

He was 19th man last week so you'd assume he's fit. Match fitness is prob an issue but he's not going to get any time for the Jets anytime soon.

Issue is that Tolman plays big minutes, so others will need to take on more. Williams I feel could easily play more minutes, same with Uele. Rudolf doing enough already.

Tolman was statistically our best defender on the weekend (had an average game) but I have noticed a habit of swinging the arm a bit high. maybe a consequence of being a stocky bloke that plays long minutes and isn't agile on his feet

a player like Tolman you really need to be near perfect when it comes to discipline and errors cause he isn't gunna get you a big line break or points (I get that's not what he is there for)

Charged and looks like he will miss a week
Dangerous contact 69th minute v Daniel Siafiti, looking at 172 with early guilty 220 without

He's played like 10yrs with ****all charges & has copped what 3-4 in 2021 alone? The game is broken & the entire season needs a big * by it. Breaking all these winning records, points, tries, TAs, etc. isn't worthy.

good point - something the NRL needs to acknowledge. Either the rules now over reach or dirty players have been getting away with it for a decade +

Tolman isn't a dirty player
