Latu

One positive from the night and what a shame he got injured.

How this guy has ever been behind Daniel Fitzhenry and Beau Ryan and to a lesser extent Brown and Daniella is beyond me.

If he was fit and any man in this world could justify Beau Ryan over him next week if Mckinnon was back id give it away.

He was good but I wouldn't call him god-sent. Unlucky the bloke got injured,

A very good debut I think.

I was at the game and he just sort of fell over in golden point. Was limping pretty badly - hopefully cramp but he was grabbing at his foot

Hes not a god sent but he made better metres than any of our back 5. And when you get a guy his size and his leg speed making good metres it means the next hitup can be good and the one after that..etc.

He is better than Beau Ryan and Mitch Brown. Hopefully the administration agree.

Latu was like a breath of fresh air - ran at line with pace and enthusiasm, unlike most of the team!

Solid debut tonight. Not a speedster but hit the line hard and fights hard in the tackle which makes him an effective tackle breaker. Hope the injury isn't serious as I'd keep him in FG ahead of Ryan based on tonight's performance.

Souths.

He was down for what looked like about 2 tackles, the play and I guess all trainers eyes were on the other side of the field

It should only take a couple of weeks before the hitting the line hard and straight part is coached out of him.

He was great tonight.

Thought that he was very good on debut and was, along with Lawrence the best of our backline. Although I love Beau I think that this kid has alot more potential then him. Doubt we'll see him again this year though as it seemed like the injury he picked up will put him out for at least a couple of weeks.

Not really sure how much talent he has,& same goes for Mitch Brown,but at least they run hard & straight & dont just capitulate at the feet of the first tackler in the interest of self preservation like Ryan & Fitzhenry.
I cant believe the latter two have 1st grade contracts..no other non Sheens coached club wld employ them

Latu is far too slow to be a good first grade winger. Has a bit of size which he uses well to his advantage, but not a first grader for mine.
When Beau Ryan gifted Souths that try after saving a 40/20, Latu showed no urgency whatsoever to get back and help. He was well in front of the Souths players, but decided to take a casual jog, hopefully a valuable lesson for the future.
