I don't think Lawrence would make the starting side for any team other than us. He's ok, but no better than who everyone else has. He can't break the line other than occasionally 5m out from the line. No power in attack or defence.
Exactly!! In fact I think there are back rowers coming off the bench in some teams that are better footballers - and it hasn’t taken them 12 years of first grade to get there...

I might get crucified for this but I honestly think we should target Hayne. I think he is exactly what we need. His back end of the season was really good. We do need a centre and someone of his calibre and his valuable experience is too hard to turn down. Thoughts?? I also heard he is being targeted by the Dragons so maybe we can jag on of their centres If Hayne is to go there.

I dont know what all the fuss about Lawrence is about.

He is more than adequate at 2nd row, one of our better leaders and a true tiger - very loyal. He is an asset to the club and fans alike.

Lets start talking about Centre or something a little more relevant. That's where our issues lie currently.

Ok then. So we basically need someone better that Nofo or Thompson? both their forms this year had their ups and downs, at lest Thompson is flexible with positions

Would rather the one pushed out than Hayne and am happy enough with Lawrence on our left for the time being.

Dragons, lose Jason Nightingale (retired) and Nene MacDonald (Cowboys) .. but will have Euan Aitken, Tim Lafai and young Zac Lomax to play in the centres .. Jordan Pereira will take one wing and probably Kurt Mann the other .. If the Dragons to snare Hayne .. Hayne doesn't want to play on the wing, but the Dragons will want to keep young Zac Lomax - he's a future Kangaroo centre in the making - so I wonder if Tim Lafai is on the chopping block .. ?? Dragons also have a young centre playing ISP Cup named Reuben Garrick who is also a jet in the making .. go after him, or even Esan's brother Steven from the Dragons ;)

Other than Darius who did Bennett lure to St George and Newcastle who were in their prime and or up and coming?
His current missus? Not sure if she qualifies.

He was our best forward all year.
Ran hard, hit holes an held the ball well.
Stunned by the critics of him this year.

Lawrence = first man picked
Lawrence = leadership
Lawrence = great hole runner
Lawrence = solid defence
Lawrence = loyalty
Lawrence = Captain

Lomax will be the first centre picked next year dont be surprised if Aitken is moved on for 2019

Hopefully a big, fast outside back

No one wants him and he would be great for us. He would slot into our backline somewhere and he'd be a massive upgrade on Fonua.
