Yeah nah.
Offers nothing.

I feel that is very negative..

his work in the lead up to Nofoaluma's TRY was good..
Negative comment for a negative performance.

Mbye is way better

Since the thread is gone, I'll repeat myself here.

Even some of his bad plays lead to points, unless we replace him with another fullback who an play as a second 5/8 like Mbye then this is our best lineup 1-5

I'd have JR at 6 as Tui and Benji can both overplay, although Benji played much better today.

I agree with that too...regarding Mbye over Lolohea..

But to say Lolohea offers nothing is negative..I think he is more a 5/8th than a Fullback but we have a few more of them ATM

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
I look at it another way. It was a very good effort for Lolahea to chime in from fullback and create the extra man. When he kicked towards the line the defence was concentrating on the overlap and the kick surprised them. Anyway it was the kick and Lawrence's great effort that won Tigers the game.

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

Looks like he thinks he's a 5/8 too...
Hes been mismanaged his whole career.
Just doesn't seem to fit into the team.

MAHE was right next to him and worse case senario we get a repeat set. We scored a try I don’t get the complaints

I actually thought he was ok. Obviously had that howler, but felt he ran it back strong and was a constant threat on overlaps. He finally seemed to show a bit of that burst in his first step he had in his Warriors days and at stages last year. Can easily get on the outside of his man and set-up the centre/winger when he does that. Perfect example was Nofoaluma's try.

Also don't forget we're 4 from 4 with Lolohea. I don't think it's exactly a coincidence, he is very vocal at the back and tends to have our line set well. The only linebreaks I can think of are from poor 1 on 1 misses and the try they scored was on Chee-Kam or Marsters (One of them overcommitted but can't remember). Either that or we just happen to get very lucky with him at the back, I don't know.

There's enough positives we can take out of that to think he can grow into the role and make an impact as the season goes on. At his best he definitely offers more than Thompson and I feel that if he really is getting back into match shape and over the knee niggle, he should be an asset.

Got a lot more involved in the second half and paid dividends as he had direct hand in two tries.

I'm not upset at his output in the second half, injected himself well.

Thought he was pretty poor besides the work he did for Nofa’s try and thanks to Lawrence his kick into the line

But in reality with the list we have now him playing fullback and Thompson playing wing is our best way to approach it.... until mbye comes of course

What a wank this whole nonsense is that we've won 4 from 4 with him this year like it's all his doing. Load of garbage.

Again I remind everyone there was never once a play we've run this year where Thompson was in a position like Lolohea was for Nofo's try.

Irrespective of all this, the reasons why he isn't a first grade standard fullback still showed tonight. His positioning at the back is sub-par and his effort is disgraceful. It's fortunate that the Bulldogs didn't make more linebreaks because he wasn't stopping anyone. He got saved by Brooks and then saved by Masters.

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

I didn’t see the first half but seemed to work into the game throughout the second half
