Second howler in 2 weeks. Will probably get the chop for the game Lote returns, then get his spot back when Lote gets injured again.

I have supported him all year,but he has had 2 very ordinary outings in a row,he needs to be dropped.

Thanks Wade Mckinnon, but unless theres another key injury (unlikely!) youre dropping off the bench so Utai can play # 14 (battering ram from the 71st to the 80th minutes). The premiership is ours..

Hes go to go. Watch the bombs come his way. He's to slow who looks like a ship trying to turn around when they kick his way. Brown to the stat with Utai and McKinnon to go. We all know that man Mr sheens will drop brown. Please Utai will cost us in a big game soon.

Agree with the comment that he is part of the spirit that is the team at the moment. If he played with a broken hand then all power to him as that is relective of that spirit. He provides good hit ups, when Lote returns he is back to the bench as Gurry said. Brown should not be dropped he had a good game last night IMO.

Yes, he runs the ball back like a wild bull........but that is ALL he does. Surely one of the forwards can take that role?

When Lote and Chris are back, I don't see how Utai will get a game.

One skill = great.

Other areas = massive liability.
Wingers do this to give the forwards much needed rest.
Yeh tonite wasnt his best nite but lets not forget he played with a broken hand

Is that true? I thought that was found to be not true and it was only bruised. If it is true then he shouldnt have played, we all know our wingers can be put under pressure by freakish passes, the last thing they need is a broken hand. Id say even if it was just bruised, it would have affected him a bit as well.

I doubt he'll drop that much ball again, and if we didnt have players coming back id be happy to keep him on the wing......but i think any poor game by a winger now puts him behind the 8 ball. Lote has one spot down, and the right wing has Ryan, Utai and Brown fighting it out. I think its a tough decision. Put Beau and Utai's attitude on Brown and he walks it in.......but the fract is, Brown does good work when he's involved, but he doesnt get involved enough. He's quite a big strong guy, just not hungry enough.

I'd say Ryan on the right with Utai on the bench would be ok. Shame we didnt get to see how Brown would have gone at fullback this year. Its amazing that the fullback we had in the semi finals last year didnt get one single game there this year. :crazy

Yeah that sounds alright with Utai on the bench. As for Brown I don't know if anyone can do the math as to why we have barely seen the guy this year, ran over someone's dog?

Watched a couple of angles of the no try and much less control has been awarded by the video reff. Hell he denied Heighnos try and gave the terrible try decision to Dugan in Canberra without going upstairs.

A couple of off weeks for Utai. Be interesting to see where he sits at full fitness

Gurry don't let your emotions get in the way of making a carefully thought out comment!
Whilst I think you might be seriously getting ahead of yourself I definitely agree that Utai will best serve the team from the bench! If he had a better passing game he would be great from dummy-half in the last 20 minutes of each game (particularly with his darting runs) and allow Farah to move back to lock.

I have been watching him for weeks, do you think it will be different next week?? the only difference, he will be a bigger target with bigger rewards
Agreed SC,deadset liability.Utai had two opportunies and blew both.You could see the frustration in Benji.
Plus he let in a try.

Utai had a shocker!! everyone has bad games at least it didn't cost us, I think on form Ryan will definately keep the wing spot when Lote returns
