I really don't care how good a bloke he is.

He is dead set finished as a footballer.

Embarrassing watching him trying to catch balls.

He is doing his best i don't doubt his effort. However he died as a footballer around 2012.

I gave him the benefit of the doubt with the kick off cos that was a mongrel of a ball to catch. Putting those passes down though on the attack were hard to forgive. Expect much more from a seasoned first grader than that.

Guys he does his best every week.

However he ether gets belted or drops balls.

And his defence is hardly great either.

He is just a dead weight on the roster we can't ged rid of.Harsh but true. Would not start in the back row anywhere else.

Like most of our players they play bog average in a terrible side and we see it as a great effort. Then when it is their turn to have a shocker we crucify them! Today he had a poor game but still better than Brooks last week!

Agree , it's coming up to 6 years since he busted his hip & he's offered nothing since .

People have defended Rowdy for years saying he was a world class centre. Pigs bum!
He was a fast winger and once that asset was lost (his speed) he should have been traded away.

Speed was his main asset, when he lost that to his terrible injury he should have retired with the club paying out his contract.He has no lateral movement and has the hands and dexterity of a sloth.He always will be big hearted but that isnt enough.

Full of heart but gets dominated both in attack & defence. We need size in our pack & on the bench. I'm happy to keep ET at lock but would like to see the following moving forward:

8. Woods
9. Ballin
10. Ava
11. Sue
12. Aloiai
13. ET

14. Grant
15. Felise
16. Tatola
17. Marsters/MM (if Ballin can't last 80)

Say what you like about our halves but you can't expect much when our pack get so poorly dominated each week. And that's also JT's fault for picking a weak bench 2 weeks in a row.

Now if you want to bag Lawrence that's fair enough in my opinion. But why is Lawrence under contract until 2019. Why isn't this point ever brought up???. If I remember correctly wasn't this one of the many problems that others caused for Jason Taylor, correct me If I'm wrong, but wasn't this one of the many stuff ups associated with the Tim Sheens era. Wasn't it a 5 year contract on absurd money, with a one year option in his favour, which he exercised. Hang on, I almost forgot about Andrew Fifita. That's right, he was let go for Adam Blair. Chris Heighington another. Truth is we got lucky in 2005, by the name of Scott Prince and Benji Marshall.

We just don't have the first graders to make up a good squad ...the raiders looked fat and unfit ,,but they still had more than we have

Was he concussed before the game started today?

If he wasn't I don't think he got concussed later just used it as excuse to come off and save further embarrassment

Dead set shocker today.

Aloiai offers more now, hell even Lovett is a better defender than Rowdy and doesn't drop the ball.

Lawrence was on a reported 750 for this year which would have been the last year of his contract.In hindsight we would probably have been better off paying this instead of paying a reported 400 a year including 2019.I like Chris but due to no fault of his own is not value for money that hip injury finished him

I have and always will respect what he has done for this team on and off the field but it's time to hang up the boots. Today was embarrassing. Maybe the club can find him a job on the coaching staff or working with the fans/community engagement instead because, unfortunately, he's no longer even ESL standard.
Tigers tragic since 1980.

Is he here until 2019?

Wow !!

What level is he going to b playing at then.I feel for him. Its sad watching him play. I said he should have retired back in 2012 and got killed by most. However you can't bale him for taking the cash and playing on. By all accounts he is a great bloke and he does his best.

However his performances are embarrassing.

His coordination is so low for a guy that was a fast winger back in the day. The ball looks like a grenade in his hands at times. He literally struggles with playing the ball properly. This might sound a bit wrong but he kind of looks a bit disabled the way me moves in games. Hard to describe.

From what i have seen so far our re-build needs to start now. We have invested in Marsters, Felise, liddle, Tatola so lets play them. Lovett, grant should not play again. Im pretty sure Lawrence still has 3 years to go, how is that even possible.

How is Lawrence going to play in 2019? On a motorised scooter?
