Toovey wary

Aap
Thursday, April 17, 2014

SYDNEY - Manly coach Geoff Toovey admits Johnathan Thurston's lack of form is a concern to his side, with the North Queensland superstar still waiting to fire in 2014.

The 2013 Golden Boot winner, who was named as the Rugby League World Cup's player of the tournament, has only tasted victory twice this season and struggled in last Saturday's loss to the Wests Tigers where even his usually flawless goalkicking was off radar.

However, Toovey knows the Queensland five-eighth is rarely out of touch for long and said tomorrow's clash with the Cowboys in Gosford could be where he finds rediscovers his form.

"It does worry me a little bit, great players always bounce back from quiet performances when the team isn't going great," Toovey said.
