Forever remembered for the day when JT used him as a stop gap centre despite keeping Lawrence (who played centre for Australia) in the 2nd row - hilarity ensued.
You found that funny?
The bloke was embarrassed beyond words, the team soundly beaten because of the positional change and he has been vilified on here ever since. He was not useless, merely adequate.

Agree with the posters that have a put a more positive slant on Lovett's time at the Tigers. The guy did try his best and he should be congratulated for playing as many NRL games as he has. There have been many who have pulled on our colours who have played worse than him. I wish him well into the future. Thanks Kyle for all your efforts!!

Anyone who runs out on the field at NRL level needs plenty of ticker and Lovett sort of became the forum voodoo doll. Last year when we were on our mid season charge he went okay.

The players do not pick the team so if a player gets picked and is not up to standard its not his fault. I say thanks Lovett for your efforts and I hope you can get a gig in ESL where you might go okay

I've always thought that Lovett was a very good defender and every time he played he tightened the defence on his side. No, he wouldn't have made firsts next year but he always tackled his bum off and those who are taking such pleasure at putting the boot in at his misfortune need to take a good long look at themselves.

He had a red hot go, but didn't have the size to be a standout NRL forward.

He also kept his mouth shut and took the hit when socialising with some of his more illustrious young teammates.

I remember when he hopelessly outplayed the golden son Sirro in a city v country game. He will fill a hole somewhere.

Would be hilarious to see him sign for a good team on nothing and watch some of those bagging him turn on the incompetent club for letting him go

I think he really put in. Hopefully he does well in life.

The hate is funny..Lovett was no world beater sure but he put in every time he took the field and left everything out there..
I agree Geo. Was never a world beater but tried hard with the ability he had.
My lingering memory of him will be the day at Leichhardt that he was moved to the centres when someone got injured. That was the day Whare (sp?) ran rings around him and we lost on the back of it. He got left at halfway once and he dropped his head and smashed the ground with his fist. I genuinely felt sorry for the bloke - he was busting his balls but was like a lamb to the slaughter.
I don't think you could ever accuse him of not having a go - he just lacked that bit of class to be a regular first grader. JT playing him in the centres did him no favours.
Totally agree the guy did put the effort in but was just not good enough. Unlike others who dogged it in the past (Ben Teo, Braith Anasta) to name a few

I wish him all the best in the future, just keep away from bad influences.

Good riddance. I used to be one of his few supporters because he did have a go, but im not a fan of druggies. Thats a personal decision. Seeya champ.

Based on this SMH article he deserved another chance and presumably he has been responsible since. Good luck he got off the crim record plus and hopefully stays clean so won't end up a lost case.

Ms Wahlquist said she took into account Lovett's youth, his clean criminal history, his remorse, and his early guilty plea.

She did not record a conviction, and handed down a six-month good behaviour bond.

My number one memory of Lovett was at a fan day, where he brushed my son to flirt with a couple of young lady fans. Can't blame him though...
I'd do the same haha


Goodluck Sarge

Thanks Kyle... always put in Kyle.... tried hard, just wasn't talented enough... nice fella that young Kyle... etc. etc.

Anyway, I for one am glad he is not with us next year. See ya Kyle!

Yup the Penrith game at leichhardt....after two tries down his side where they ran right past him they swapped him and lawrence, then two tackles later lawrence got concussed and carted off.....

I just dont see the point in laying the slipper into him one last time. He did his job until we found better and is now moving on. Good luck to him.

More likely the Gulargambone Jets - if they are feeling benevolent - then again they might want to win their comp.
Hey don't bring down a good country NSW town team by adding a dud like Lovett !!! Go the Gilgandra Panthers !!!

Widely considered by the players as one of the best blokes in the NRL, he gave his all. Wish him all the best.
