Wasn't it nice to see Chris get back and tear onto the ball like he did when he scored

Take note Sirro , get back further and run onto the ball , I reckon the quicker you are moving the better your footwork responds to what you see at the line

Im really p!ssed off we got beaten but im very happy for Rowdy and extremely proud of how he played.
Hope he performs in 2d row on a consistent basis. He has NEVER been afraid to put his body on the line and fits right in.

Can turn out to be a player like Luke Lewis or Gareth Ellis (i hope)

I was so happy to see him perform like that. Great guy and I think he now has a spot.

Lets hope he is never used as a centre again, its been obvious to anyone with eyes that he needed to be moved to the backrow for a long time now.

Change happens slowly at this club.
Spot on. He went well in the backrow, the move was long overdue.

Well, maybe, just maybe, he's the second rower we've been looking for. Certainly now makes centre our number one recruitment requirement, followed by a mongrel prop!

It's easy to find a prop with mongrel: we just released one to go to Souths. The ones that are good players also? They don't come cheap.

Now that you mention it, YES
Why did he fall off the bench ?
It would have been handy to have him last night.

I say its a 3 way race between Shanti, Lovett and Lodge for a spot.

Santi and Lovett are liabilities.

Found this bit interesting on NRL.com

In his two games in the forwards Lawrence has averaged 124 metres and 31 tackles with Taylor adding the 165-game Tiger was someone his teammates "could look up to".

"Chris is such a professional. I've never seen many guys in my career that are as professional as he is about preparing themselves every week for a game of footy," Taylor said.

"He's an absolute credit to himself and we're lucky to have him at the club leading the way in that regard."

Love the guy - admit I was wrong about the transition to back row.

Hope he continues along the same lines as his two back row games. Think that will solve the missing back rower problem.

Lovett is not the answer at the moment.

Sironen will be the answer for the other spot but he needs more time - he also needs some quick men outside for him to offload to, because that is his game. We also missed his defense last night - he reads the game very well.

Santi will be good for us - never gonna be a superstar but a good fill in when needed.

So good on you Rowdy - so pleased for you that I can't stop smiling.

Wow. Amazing what real hard running will do.

Well done Chris.

I was so impressed with him last night. At center he isn't quick enough to beat his man one on one, but in the backrow he can run that hard line back in between the half and backrower, which he did for his try.

He was also sound in defence and made some good hit ups in our end. If he keeps producing that the 11 is his for the next 18 months.
