How good was it watching Lewis outpace Latrell, the latter is such an arrogant twit, so funny that he couldn't run Lewis down.

In fact when he did start to reel him in finally, Lewis kicked hard the last 10, and got in by about 2 lengths, Latrell trying to punch the ball out as he crossed.
It's hard to run too fast carrying a head that big and a giant chip on your shoulder.

No wonder he couldn't catch him.

Agree 100% but IO have anasta in mind whilst I type
Anasta was garbage years before he came to us.

Lewis is still on top of his game.

Not comparable IMO mate.
Dont get me wrong, I would love him here.

Just for the right $$$
He'll command good coin, won two premierships at two different clubs. Played every position except for front row and half back IIRC. I agree we shouldn't go into hock to pick him up but we're mad not to have a tilt at him either.
Lewis has played halfback, almost all of 2004 I think, he was playing halfback on the highlights on FOX from 2004 when Penrith came from behind to beat us, I know it was 2004 because I saw Sattler in the vision, Lewis is a true professional and we would be mad not to have a decent crack at getting him here.

Sorry, maybe it's hooker.

In any case, he's bloody versatile.

Lewis would be the "exception to my rule" of not buying players over 30 he would be ideal for our pack.Far better than anyone we have. however i cant see him coming to us

I would take him in the front row or second row.

Not as a center.

Why would we want him as a centre? He hasn't played there for a decade.

Rather Hoffman, as he's still playing 80 minutes every week and is a bit more under the radar so should be a bit cheaper.

Having said that, Lewis would be good for next year, not sure what he'd be like in 2019 though.

Players tend to go downhill pretty fast north of 30. I remembers Richards first season back with us, some were in awe. There were calls to extend his contract. Second year he was bog average.

We already have McQueen and Lawrence as experienced back-rowers.

I am not against this signing, it would be great, but I think money can be better spent elsewhere for dynamic game-breakers.
Lawrence is not an experienced backrower at all.
Nor should he be mentioned in the Same Breath as this guy.
Lewis played for his State, His Country, Dominated and won a premiership in the position....

I called for this some time back and was shouted down...
Roosters and Manly (And Sharks) aren't trying to get him next for no reason...
He's quality - And would sure up our garbage edges!!

Lewis would be a stand out, as we have a strong pack for 2018 he would be the last piece of the puzzle, as a bonus, has always been seen to be a decent bloke, treated the beauties on league life with respect as well

no. Still would need a agressive front rower to add with Lewis. Vete/paasi/Ofengauie

Would be a smart signing in my eyes. Stories about Luke's professionalism look to be something we could use to set a standard at the club.

Oh, and considering we dont have any 80min Backrowers at this stage, it makes the idea more appealing to me.

I think it's a massive risk especially on big dollars. He could be great but he could stuff our cap.

Ummm didn't Ivan punt him from Penruff?

Wouldn't this be like Taylor bringing Farah to the Roosters?

Neither of them are anywhere near the standard that Lewis still is.
And I hate saying that about Rowdy,
McQueen is either carrying a long time injury or is way out of form,
He's been ordinary for most of this season when he has played.

I get that, Lewis is far superior to Rowdy and Mcqueen.

My point is that we are paying Rowdy and McQueen big bucks and if they're not in the starting side, then it's a waste.

Depth is one thing, but you don't want to pay $$$ for an old player to play in reserve grade.

Everyone is complaining about how we are paying Sirro & Farah big dollars not to play for us, this is basically the same.

Like most here I like Lewis, but his stats this season (49 missed tackles, 13 errors, 80 metres a game) might show him already on the decline.
