there is a article in todays daily telegraph saying he wants to play in the nrl after his current contract finishes.
were we linked to him a year or so ago, does anyone know when he is off contract? also does anyone know if the club is still interested in him?

Yep, if Carney fires he ****s all over Tomkins!

while i agree, the comparison is a bit flawed

carney is a play maker, tomkins is an opportunist

carney makes the play, tomkins finishes it, which is why they moved him to fullback at wigan and brought paul deacon/brett finch

If Gards was playing in that inferior competition he'd be the god damn messiah.

Surly Rusty could do it with a Super back-end deal and a house purchased over in England for his retirement fund.

He signed a new 5 year deal last year. I was a fan of signing him last year, but now not so much.

I based my opinion of him when he was playing in the halves. He's now transitioned to fullback and plays there full-time. No way would I pay 500K+ for a fullback not named Billy Slater.

Tomkins would only come over here for a pay day. Doesn't seem like the type of guy that would really want to prove his worth and make a name for himself.

It also said he is only 78kgs. We think kelly is too small to play centre? He is too small to play anywhere on the field.

didnt he sign a 5 year contract like last year?

I would love him to play for us. He reminds me a lot of Boyd
