Iam one of the very few who thought he offers plenty and is worth persevering with. Okay he has a error in him and at times seems to be lazy, but the bottom line he has a football brain and can pull a play from nowhere. In horse racing terms, he will be better for the run

Tui back to reggies. Thompson to FB until Mbye gets here....
Tui has been a huge let down for me, he offered plenty, but delivered squat, he is lazy and out of position most times, ISP for him.

Thought he was ok and Thommo is a better winger.

I still prefer Tui in attack - stronger in the tackle and can ball-play.

I thought he did well today. He is a creative type but just needs to learn to take the right option. I have no doubt he will learn under Cleary like Brooks. I agree the run today will help him.

If he was a horse, he would be put down. Mbye can't come soon enough.

That is harsh, but he has had plenty of chances and failed to deliver.

On the particular one that Brooks saved him, watch the replay again. What exactly was he doing? He was walking.

It was actually very smart of him he trusted Brooks to get him and if he went to block off Montoya then he puts a kick in there was about 3 bulldogs in the middle screaming for the ball.

You'd think he would show a bit more ticker for someone that is basically on his last chance.

That is the thing that makes me mad, how does he have so many supporters here when he doesn't even try, he is lazy, and on form useless

Lawrence's heroics saved him, the kick was, the worst, about 0.0001% option. If it wasn't for Lawrence that would be change of momentum
Well the defence didn't expect the kick. Short of the fullback sweeping it up our guys should always have gotten to the ball first because the defenders had to turn and chase. If it'd gone through the hands they could have slid and shut it down or one of them could have made a lucky call jamming in. Doing unexpected things is what play makers should be doing from time to time...

Dropped the ball once, his support play lead to line breaks and got the assist for the game winning try.

I would like to see him kicking again.

Sadly no, how the hell he got a recall on the back of his ISP form is mind boggling

Because our attack has been stagnant and he creates opportunities like he did today with his involvement in the lead up to 2of our 3 tries (and his quick hands setting Fonua up for his disallowed try).

Jack Wighton runs the ball hard and is a good defender.

Besides a terrible drop, I thought he showed more than Mbye today.

I'm not sure he's a better player than Thommo (Thommo tries a lot harder), but I think we're a better side with them both in the side.
