But has this forum over rated him? He was a handy work horse at the Knights and didn't cut it (mainly due to injury) at the Raiders. He's a one dimensional tackling machine who didn't even tackle last night. I think we pinned too higher hopes on him. If he's persevered with, he will, again, become a serviceable, tradesman-like first grader but nothing more, a bit like Lawrence.

Waste Anasta was far worse!
Today we saw a true champion in Winx, and a true bludger in Cleary!

I didn't watch the game but sounds disappointing. None the less, everyone deserves at least a couple of games in the top grade. Perhaps a combination of trying too hard and 'rusty' with his timing out - it's a long while since he's played the game. Give him another shot. There's a lot of upside if he does play to his potential.

There is probably a good reason for him being a fringe first grader at the Knights and the Raiders. Not sure why people thought he would be anything other than that when he came here. Based on that performance he clearly needs to improve his game to consistently play first grade at any club. Certainly it would be a waste of time in bringing him to the club without giving him the opportunity. Its up to him now to really make the most of it if he gets another crack.

Deserves a 2nd chance and time to build some combinations

As I said in a thread the other day , I could see this coming a mile away , they expected Bradley Clyde or Bob Lindner reborn
Seriously? Nah mate i just expect a seasoned first grader to not drop off easy tackles. Its this acceptance of mediocrity that holds us back. You and Geo are in lala land mate. Edwards was s***
Same for me Happy, in happy to see how he goes in another game or two, mine was more a comment on the fact that it's hard to get dropped in this club

Dropped the first ball he got (an easy one) and went downhill from there..Also looked slightly overweight..

Yes give him 5-10 games.

Everyone suddenly an expert on his long-term after one performance. There's a call to put him in, finally he gets a run, then another group comes out and says "told you so".

Let's just see how he develops given some time.

Could people actually be preferring Lovett to a different backrow option? Do I dare believe my ears/eyes?

I was lower on him than most on here, and defo agree that we can't judge him on a single game, especially given he's obviously short of a run in general.
