Paint me as a hater of Chris Lawrence the centre over the last few years, but never a hater of the man.

I dont think his most ardent fanboy could be as happy as I am that he is ripping undies in the backrow.

Well done Chris Lawrence!

It really improved our team last year when he shifted into the backrow. With an off season and a few games under his belt he is really starting to grow in confidence. Well done champ.

I thought he was a standout tonight did everything right and little wrong.He has made a good move to the forwards will be more than happy to see him on an extended contact of 300-350.Wonderful club man and seems a great person as well

Wow, the last 3 games are certainly the best in his carrier so far, what is even more important he improves every game :) Today he was again looking for the ball, and on number of runs he threatened to break the line, our best 2nd rower, 106 m from 13 runs, 21 tackles, 0 MT :D

Wow Wee he was bloody awesome tonight.

Ran hard and straight and bent the line every single time.

Well done Chris.

I have been a big critic, but if he keeps this up he is a must to keep.

He was great tonight and took some tough carries as well (early in the count and stuff)

On form he is going as well as any forward in the comp.

I feel that is deficiencies in the Centres were overstated in the first place, but his move to the forwards has been a very good one.

Good winger
Just above average Centre
Potentially very good back rower.

Played awesome.

Very Luke Lewis… simular progression.
Lewis had his best years at the Panthers when he switch to the back row in about 2009, after starting for them on the wing in 2001. that's some 1st grade career.

Yes very similar and if he can have the impacts Lewis did we will be looking very good.

He was fantastic.

Runs hard and straight but not too straight - seems tovhave a nice little step in him that gets him in between the defenders, and hence some very quick play the balls. Very good.

When it was centre on centre, he was no match for speed. But he is so much quicker than the other forwards he's able to poke his head through the line and get us on the front foot. He runs the ball so hard and solid in D.
Extremely frustrated fan. Try not to let my negativity get to you.

I agree, it was the intelligence of his runs as much as the vigour with which he ran. Lawrence and Grant both made good metres by selectively attacking holes left by a retreating Manly defence.

And then to much admiration, Lawrence starts not just attacking holes but punching through tackles for quick PTB. I did not keep count, but I am sure several of our penalties and down-field marches came off select Lawrence runs with quick PTB.

Very happy with the forwards. Agreed, Lawrence had a blinder. As did Woods and Grant. ...What a bargain Grant is turning out to be.
