I always liked how he played at the dogs, genuinely hard to tackle.

The fact they didnt want him for a few years clouded my thougts on signing him.

He is playing just as well as I remember. Great stuff.

Sheens picked him up for his defensive hit ups, his work off the line and in early defensive sets. Playing on the flanks with Benji throwing you diamonds is a bonus. I thought he was a dud, but Beau Ryan has Nevile no chance at present getting his gig back. Utai is getting better by the week

But WOW.

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

Great stuff!
He was strong tonight and defended better too which was pleasing to see. Proving to be a more than capable inclusion so far.

He is certainly shoving a lot of our words down our throats at the moment (Mine included )Has not been really tested in defense yet or under high balls yet but from what he has done he has been good Congrats Matt

My name is Luke, and my humble pie tastes sweet.

Good to see him stick it to the doubters, including me, so far. I don't think any other tigers player runs it back harder

good to see his workrate increase each game.
after round 1 i thought he needed to do more work and he has.

i still can't get over how little halves are challenging him though.

i'm hoping some younger wingers can really step up during the year and challenge him for a starting spot.
i think he is the perfect no.14 in the sheens bench system.

for now,he is certainly needed on the wing.

As bad as Fifita's ratty is, it looks 100 times better than Matty Utai's.

Utai has proven that he won't be another Fitzy for us to bag. Hits the line harder than most.

Lol, really?

Utai is a mini Tuiaki, love watching him running that ball back!
