Thanks for posting Sb - a very interesting read. There must be concern at the conflicting medical diagnoses for him and Figallo, particularly since the French thinking is so serious when compared to their attitude towards concussion,

I watched Tolofua during the warm up. He arrived very early, played at drop goals for a few minutes, then the cross bar practice routine. Very unimpressed! He neither took it seriously nor achieved much success, throwing from the same spot each time, same velocity/trajectory, usually missing by some distance, His touchline practice throw routine later with Spurling was equally poor - distance, direction and trajectory. We benefitted from numerous decisions regarding straight throws during the match (Budgies did with a few as well) perhaps understandable given the wind. But I see no sign that his throwing is improving and too little of him seeking to master this weakness.

He was very good around the park, particularly in defence where he looked more mobile than earlier in the season and won many collisions. I'd like to see both him and Skelton running onto the ball from deeper at times. But if he can improve the accuracy and variety of his throwing he'll be a very useful but different replacement for Brits.
