I think this is the closest yet to the team that Cleary has wanted all year

Yep Tui sucked tbh. Moses Mbye here we come.

Tui is lost out there.
Just isn't good enough.

Ok I'll start

Thought he made a couple of terrible errors, the drop and the kick. I can live with the rest because a lot of his work leads to points, even when his options aren't the best. If Mbye or someone else comes, so be it, but with the current squad that is our best back 5 with Kev next cab off the rank in any position.

Flame away.

There were times when you can see what he brings and it's good. However, too many wrong options and too many lazy plays. The 2 kicks (even the one that we scored off)were poor plays. His soft running is lazy and his effort in not trying to keep Morris wide for the first try typifies why he hasn't been in the side.

Yet he can throw a clever ball at times that created some space for our outside men.

He must be a hard guy to coach.

Yeah I tend to agree

I don't think we will see many changes to this 17 baring injury for a while..

Very lucky that kick came off for Rowdy to score when we had a 4 on 3 and he should've let the ball sing.

Will keep his spot next week, but really needs to keep his eyes up.

He was the player who kicked for Lawrence's try. Don't knock him. I like his team attitude and on field talk which is a bit similar to Reynolds.

Did my Lolo thread get deleted? Apologies if there was something wrong with it?

The only good thing he did the whole game.
Definitely not a first grader.

I thought he added some good touches, including a few useful chimes into the back line. However, he still doesn't look as though he's back to full fitness to me. Either that or he doesn't have full confidence in his running game. I want to see his pace return to that of his 2016 Warriors days.....

His kick for Lawrence try was luck, they had an easier option quick passes for the overlap. Kick isn't worth raving about :) Good effort by Lawrence

Okay I think this is too harsh on Lolohea, he’s a very instinctive player. I’m certain that if we had Thompson at fullback we wouldn’t have scored any tries. The try for nofo, if we had Thompson at the back wouldn’t not have passed would have run inside. The try for Lawrence same thing go don’t think Thompson would have kicked for him.

Yes he dropped a ball yes he let the ball role dead But he’s made up for it by setting up two of our three tries.

No disrespect to Thompson he’s a great player and a great winger imo but I don’t think he’s the player we need at fullback and I think tui deserves another crack next week.
