    Certainly in the past that was one of his faults in his game in not running the ball back hard enough -but now he charges into the defence at full speed

      Toops has always been one of my favourites. Roosters legend and Rooster forever.

        Did Toops make his first grade debut with us? I think he only played reserves for Parramatta. If so he is on track to becoming a one club legend.

        I still don't understand his actions in the punchup though lol

          Pretty sure he did? My memory is that his debut was against the Faders in 2012 (a game I watched live). I remember seeing him named and being like 'aaaaaw man, the regular dude's out, we are gaaawn!!' then he went and played an awesome game.

          I consider him to be a 1 club player coz Parra released him, he was a nobody playing for the Jets and then he worked his way into our firsts. He's one of those hard workers who has turned himself into one of the world's best wingers through sticking to Robbo's plan, being open to learn (coulda kicked the bucket when dropped from Origin + taken $$$ elsewhere, blaming us) and always showing up with the right attitude.

          He used to have handling issues and size issues (got dominated and driven back easily). Now he's got neither of those + he runs down the middle like a front rower.

            His return to Origin (since 2015, wasn't it?) is such a great news story, and a mark of the man and how much he has improved. I have a lot of time for him. Becoming a great Rooster, no doubt.

            Some people believe supporting the Roosters
            is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed
            with that attitude. I can assure you it is
            much, much more important than that.

              Yes he did Larry as he only played NYC with Parramatta. I'm so happy he's doing so well in Origin. Speaking of Origin, I'm laughing so much at the guys I work with who hate the Roosters but have Teddy, Freddy and Toups as their digital backgrounds this week...It reminds me of this episode of Seinfeld...you are cheering for the clothes..not the people wearing the clothes:

                Above his work ethics, and tough runs one word sums up Toops more than any other: Loyalty.

                  The Blues would have struggled to get out of their own half if it wasn’t for Teddy and Toops who combined for a mind boggling 450+.
                  Toops made more meters then the rest of the backline combined minus Teddy. Look at Queensland’s back three they did nothing Cleary’s kicking game was a direct result of Teddy and Toops making 25-30 meters off the first two carries then Haas and Saifiti continued that roll on.

                  Toops vs JAC two polar opposites Toops strengths? Everything perhaps his weaknesses is a better question answer not many the occasional rare drop.
                  JAC 66 meters lol pure attacking threat his kick chase is what makes him lethal why Queensland continued to bomb to Toops defies logic yes they had Coates but he’s a rookie Toops is the best in business.

                  If I was a selector I would pick David Nofoaluma on the other wing simply because he makes plenty of meters busts a heap of tackles not as quick as JAC but offers so much more.
