Laurie has been nothing but a liability to Penrith...was that his first or second FG game for them? still lacks discipline and still is the most confused lookin guy in the game without football in hand....very glad he is not here.

Cue the puff piece in the Terrorgraph today with Laurie blaming Sheens for sabotaging his performance for allegedly "talking" behind his back in the media.

It's all good though. With Luke O'Donnell leaving for ESL, we could use another bitter ex-player to hand us a couple of games a year.

Dane looked unfit and also lacked match practice. Elliot only put him in the side to try and intimidate the Tigers and it failed.

If Matt Elliot has his time over again, i don't think he would have even dared to have signed the ambiguous Daine Laurie. You can have all the ability and poten tiual in the world as an athlete in any sport or code, but if you lack the focus, attitude and drive to knuckle down and apply yourself to the trade, you become exactly that, a liability. Not only in the short term, but long term as well. Laurie's attitude is one that a Rugby League club and team can ill afford not to have. It's like he perceives he is owed something, when really he is owed nothing.

Fifita, week after week has shown and continues to show that one Daine Laurie has not and will not be missed by Wests Tigers.

Laurie showed he hasn't learnt a thing at Penrith, or changed his attitude. He's still lazy, unfit and a liability in defence. I'm glad we got rid of him.

I think Elliot was the only person in the world who thought naming Daine - and starting him!? - would be a good thing for Penrith.

Daine still has problems with ball control.
carrying it high over his head when tackled, and appears to be a bit erratic at times.

It was great seeing Fifita brush him aside on that kick return in the lead up to Lawrie's try.

Teo is better than any backrower we have bar Ellis. He was 18th man for QLD.

Certainly don't miss Laurie. Teo is a differrent matter. He's going to be a very very good player and we let him slip.

Teo dogged too many games for us to worry about it.

I was very surprised the Panfers coach played Daine as his form did not warrant selection.

It was a grave mistake but handy for us :sign:

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Te'o is a complete and utter dud. The only time he breaks the line is when the game is wrapped up and he's bludging in the centres. His defense is weak, his discipline is poor and his attitude is crap.

No way would I have him over Ellis. Heighno, Fulton or even Dwyer.

Played pathetic. Every time he touched the ball, the fans booed him. Pathetic, no shame about that one.
