If you think Miller is a better option right now than Lui, then you are mistaken. Miller has no combinations with the side, he would be as useful as Ray Thompson. A passenger watching the proceedings. Miller is a skillful player, fantastic talent, but Lui is going to be far more effective than Miller for us this year...
nope. moltzen
Moltzen just showed that he can be a dangerous fullback. Why would you move Moltzen back to halfback after he just played well at fullback and Lui played well at halfback? Especially against the Roosters, when both of them have a real chance to grow some form against a side whose season is over.

Ah the old lui thread. What would we do without it after every game? Almost getting to the fitzy or Morris stage

lui and moltzen had average games. moltzen hasnt shown much this year because he has been out of position most of the year. lui hasnt shown much this year because he hasnt been up to firstgrade standard

When has Moltzen shown that he is a better option at halfback than Lui, except for 2 years ago?

Lui played well. He is our best option.

His kicking game was great tonight, in fact it was probably our best kicking game of the year due to him. He is our best option.

When Moltzen has been given the halfback role alongside Benji this season, he has been poor. Lui has been slightly less poor. Lui was very good in our great season last year. Moltzen was excellent the season before. Lui is still ahead imo.

But, you are absolutely entitled to your opinion, and at times I have lost faith in Lui too. This game redeemed him for now in my eyes.

I watched his game closely and he had one good kick tonight. ONE.
The other good kicks came from Benji and Robbie.

IMO if you are pleased with Lui at half then what you are saying is either:
1 - "he's our best option" - That's sad. Firstly, he is not. Secondly, we shouldn't settle.
2 - "he's a good halfback" - He is not. Evidenced by our cheering if he gets through 20 minutes mistake-free.
3 - "he's got potential" - Maybe. But we've waited long enough and he's still below par.

Regarding potential, I support giving the young guns a go, but once they've had their chance and failed then....to borrow a quote - “Waiting is a trap. There will always be reasons to wait. The truth is, there are only two things in life, reasons and results, and reasons simply don't count.”

Disagree all you like, but don't call me disloyal or a Rabbitohs fan just because I refuse to settle for mediocrity.

I've said it before, I'd rather have no halfback at all than Lui. Worst case, put another centre or winger in, at least they will run off Benj/Robbie effectively and won't trick the rest of the team into thinking there is another genuine playmaker out there!

Sad thing for me (and all that agree) is, that it doesn't matter how much we may rant and rave on these forums, Lui will keep getting picked. forum/posting.php?mode=quote&f=68&p=205 ... 1310828101#

Honestly, what the coach sees in him is beyond me (and has been for months!)
It's just Fitzhenry with a makeover :D

what about after the Warriors game when they were stranded in Auckland,and they come out and said that being stranded was a 'blessing in disguise' and it brought them 'closer together',and will have a positive affect? pfft all talk and no action






Yeah really positive

He is improving with each game. Those people bagging on him after tonight probably didn't watch the entire game. I'm sure Tim Sheens knows a little more about coaching than 90% of us do. Its common knowledge that if you mess someone around, their performance will be messed around. Shuffling Miller and Lui about would not do any good.
Extremely frustrated fan. Try not to let my negativity get to you.
