Yeah I would have thought that even with a dip in form, Laurie is first choice and he's stuck in Cup (obviously with him injured if he was to move now he could get some game time). Laurie off contract next year, so maybe they're looking for a back up in case he goes somewhere else? Or someone to pressure him to lift his game?Time for Dykes to decide if he wants to debut sooner, or better.
In the list of options for this weekend there would have been a fair gap between 1 Hynes and 1 Dykes but I think that gap gets a lot shorter by 12 months from now.
WK a fair path blocker though
Could see himself a good pathway to first grade by signing with Tigers and subtly dropping a few comments in ear shot of Laurie (yeah just excited to be here, management seemed very keen to get me here and hopeful I can fix up their fullback problem)
Laurie’s form dropped after he got scolded in media for playing pokies at 9pm so I reckon you could whiteant him.
And become the under pressure fullback of a **** team.
To complicate his path here we have Taukamo coming into our top 30 next year too.
At one stage this season we had amongst the best NRL*, Cup, Flegg and HM fullbacks
*Kennedy was amongst the best on form, still a few others with much higher ceilings
Not sure I can see it ending with Dykes getting NRL games anytime soon.
