think give taumata a try first see how it works, if not bring lui in.

Did rarely anything wrong, and starting coming out of his shell a bit in Gold Coast game.

Lui has fantastic poise for a player his age. Some people on this forum expect the world from him after three matches but given some NRL experience he can be an extremely effective half for us - a very good foil for Marshall and the smart short kicking game that Benji struggles with at times.

I cant believe peoples expectations, young Lui gets thrown in at the deep end in a key position, goes okay without setting the world on fire and people want to write him off, This kids got class, put him on the open market and their would be heaps of interest. We seem to accept average performances from some established fgraders week in and week out but expect star like qualities from our rookies. Give the kid a break he will be good, cast your mind back to Moltzen first few games in the top grade, hardly memorable, and now he is a quality fgrader.

I think the problem is we are losing the usual suspects when it comes to scapgoats....

Lui is a 5/8 much the same as Marshall yet he was pitched into first grade in the 7,,,,I don't really know what people expected from him....Andrew Johns like performaces from the get go I spose...He was solid in the first grade games he played more than happy with his development....I thought he would really struggle defensively but he held his own....He will only get better the more experience he gains...

supercoach...Moltzen's start was pretty memorable to me .....thrown in after 4 mins against the Dragons then solid performances against the Cows, Dogs Panthers and Raiders before Marshall came back.....

He's a natural 5/8, it's just a question of whether he plays with the number 6 or 7 jersey on his back. He's bound to feature in first grade next season, but with Taumata joining the club, competition in the halves will be fierce, especially considering Moltzen went well at 7 late this season. We'll obviously get a better idea in the trials next year but pre-season training should make for some good competition between the players.

I would like to see him direct a side in the State Cup a little bit first.

He is a real talent but I think guiding a team away from the pressure against well organised defensive structures would be of great benefit in the long term

I'm gobsmacked at the level of criticism in Lui in his limited first grade experience. Seems some want him to set the world on fire from day one. Never was going to happen. Halves like props are long term investments. I like what i've seen from him so far....to quote sheens, it's rocks and diamonds with players like Lui, Benji was similar for so long early on his career, consistency is still an issue of his.

Should he be viewed as our 7 next season, absolutely! That should be our intention. Will that be how it plays out? Who knows, but with Taumata and Moltzen there is depth and a battle for one of them to gain the 7. Thats what we want too, keeps the boys on their toes and hopefully at the top of their game.

I was speaking to the father of one of the Canterbury NYC players at golf the other day. I mentioned the scoreline by which Weststigers won. I said that Lui scored 2 tries. He said that yes he did but he also set up about 3 more!

His words "what a player"

We need to keep him. Where he plays I do not know. He is a natural 5/8. Has played all his football there. Maybe Tamatau to half, Lui to 5/8, Benji to centre with Lawrence?

We have bought some really fast guys from other clubs who could play on the wings. Mr T to the forwards if, as reported, his injury will restrict his pace from now on. Moltzen seems to be Sheen's favourite for the fullback spot.

That backline will be very fast and very good.

Good idea. We've had some real success when Benji's been moved from 5/8...

Do you think he will stay with us? I think he is from Nth Queensland so will probably end up there playing with Thurston. Give the kid time he needs to have another year in 20's or State cup against the bigger boys. He is a great find but I don't think he will stay with us. :(

move benji from 5/8 is worst idea ever.
He kills it having the room to move dummy decoying or putting centre's in holes.

Watch whenever a team doesnt have good line speed he will carve them up.

Lui is only young, but im sure we will be seeing him more.. Whether he should be our #1 choice for 7 is another question with taumata coming

Do you ever watch the game for God's sake?

Benji plays half, dummy half, 5/8, centre and wing sometimes in defence. I saw Collis pack into the scrum the other night! Sheens has players playing all over the place in different positions. Wise up.

I'd be backing the 51-60 & 61-70 points scored in a game every weekend (and coming out in front i reckon) if that was the combo.
Points a plenty (FOR BOTH TEAMS) ;)
