Utai

Post by steven_tiger » Sat 26 Mar, 2011 9:40 pm

Gotta admit, I wasn't a fan of his inclusion in round 1.

But WOW.

This guy is on fire. He runs with great gusto and hits the line hard!

Great stuff!

Been excellent in all 3 games, lets hope he keeps it up.

Won't join the fan club until he loses the stupid ratty though.

Apart from being short for kick retrievals I thought he showed some strength in attack tonight too. With Lote out he needs to keep it up!

Apart from trying a chip and a chase he to me was brilliant.

Hed be the second outside back id pick at full strength behind Lawrence, and ahead of Tuquiri.

My name is Chris and I'm a humble pie eater. I thought he was outstanding in attack tonight. I hope he can keep this up because there's still a long way to go in the season.

He has been a weapon. He really gets us going. I don't see him as a great finisher however he gets the job done.

I can't see Ryan walking back into a wing spot.

He is doing well. As he should. His looking to kick-start his career. His doing it the right way.

To be honest I like him over Tuquiri as well. He gets more involved, runs harder, runs straighter , and that finish tonight was brilliant.

If my memory serves me correct I think Ink should take a bow. I think he was the only one who wanted to keep Utai in the team after the foundation cap where many of us were prepared to label him with this year's fitzy award.

For the last 2 weeks he has been up there with our best and you can't fault him this season so far

Everyone deserves a chance....he's taken his with both hands.
It seemed to me way before we even played a trial, a lot of posts against him were personal for whatever reason Ive no idea....seemed quite unfair to me.
His metres have been impressive....his D could improve...but I spose every player has something they can improve on.

He has been brilliant no one can deny that.

But his weaknesses still remain. Turning back and chasing grubbers, bombs (general defense) and speed. I guess Ayshford takes the bombs, but the other stuff is still there.

He did show some decent pace, but a lot of wingers these days could easily run around him. He's faster than McKinnon that's for sure, he's really annoying me.

Matty Utai is a great addition to the side. He`s going well, but will get much better as the season progresses.
