Penalty Machine

Poor Ball Handling

Sh1thouse in most tackles leading to penalties galore

No Impact

Poor example to the fantastic young players we have

Anyone point out the benefits of Joel being re-signed

A pathway to coaching..the last player on earth you would want coaching the kids.

Is this a wind up?

Joel has been one of our most consistent performers all season. He's played prop, 2nd row, loose forward, centre and stand off, all to a good standard. He plays with passion and pride week in and week out and if he makes a mistake he makes up for it in other ways. I'm no happy clapper but Joel Tomkins is a hell of an athlete and a hell of a rugby player. I'm delighted we have kept him!!

He's Garbage, cost us 14 points today, we would have won without him in the team.

Don't talk daft pal. He worked his nuts off as usual. A few lads were off their game today, Sutton had a shocker! The simple truth is, with the personnel on show, we had no right to be in with a shout today and a draw isn't a bad result when everything is taken into consideration.

Soz Joel, but the young lads got us the draw along with Lockers the Ledge, You as usual pegged us back due to bad discipline, inabilty to catch and general shitness..

Sutton dropped two but made up with strong drives and defense and he's a young un so catches a break, you were poop as usual.

Some people can't see the wood for the trees but each to their own. He'd be in my squad every week without question. Sutton did drive it hard yes, Joel was bone shaking in defence. The ball he dropped off Lockers was understandable, it was like a rocket at full pelt!

I would suggest you don't start drinking so early. Sleep it off pal.

Joel Is Pants and i am raging that i have to put up with him for another 2 seasons, i must have shouted at the tv 10 or 11 times "why the f*** are you passing to Tomkins" then low and behold a crap pass or a dropped balled, very poor and only at the club because of 2 reasons, 1, his name is Tomkins and 2, it's a case of jobs for the boys, fans seem to forget how he p1ssed us off to go and play union for big money, then came back with his tail between his legs due to the fact he was crap and failed, we should have let KR sign him seeing as no other SL club where interested
All the good music has already been written by people with wigs and stuff.

His worst game of the season without doubt for me but he's having a good season overall and we're lucky to have him signed up.

Both he and Lockers were guilty tonight of poor concentration at points. I thought Lockers provided some great moments of skill in between that whereas Joel just couldn't get going.

Fair summary this. Lockers is like a fine wine and just keeps getting better but he was guilty of a few errors tonight. Joel wasn't up to his usual consistent standard but we're a far better side when they both play. If anything I'd say they were trying too hard to set the standard for the young lads.
