Lui

Post by steven_tiger » Fri 16 Sep, 2011 11:00 pm

Let me start by saying I rate the kid big time and I think he'll be a star. His attack is coming along beautifully and he is steering the ship along nicely.

He has been much maligned over the last two years for his average defence. Most of this critisism has been warranted.

Over the last weeks though he really put his body on the line and aimed up.

Tonight though, he was back to his old self.

Mateo's try was deadset embarrassing. I wouldn't be disappointed if he fronted up, put the shoulder in, took him front on and got run straight over. But tonight he stood to the side and literally pushed Mateo through the hole.

I know, usually, a good big man will always beat a good small man, but you need to go into a tackle thinking you're going to make it, not that you're going to get smashed.

Bad night to go missing in defence.

I know I am probably being picky, and he only missed two tackles all night, but this stodd out to me tonight.

... I am absolutely shattered.

I thought lui was good in defence tonight generally. Made a great tackle on Johnson when he made a break, and didn't miss too many. Mind you I was at the ground so I could've missed a few

Lui was so bad for most of the season that he probably should have been dropped long ago. But full credit to Sheens for sticking with him as it has proven effective. Lui should have a good season next year.
Extremely frustrated fan. Try not to let my negativity get to you.

that was a very poor miss. i know its one on one but even get some body contact and it slows mateo down a bit and hopefully someone else can get a play on him. to me it looked like lui seriously got out of his way, not first grade stuff

I actually thought he defended well tonight we didnt lose because of that one missed tackle.i thought we lost because they tried to defend a lead rather than improve it.Lui had a pretty good game imo

Haha cost us the game. Thanks kul you can't be serious. Only playmaker in our team that shows any composure. Defence has improved massively since middle of the year.

From what I saw of Moltzen tonight he would be better off concentrating on his own game rather than giving it to other players.

I think a good off season hitting the tackle bags with no accusations over his head *touch wood* like last season and I think he can turn into a really good defender. I think he has the right body shape to develop into a good tackling number 7.

He'll always get targeted but I think he'll be much better next season. He was found out this year and I think it'll be a big focus by Sheens to lift this part of his game

I remember how bad Lawrence's defence was and now I reckon he is the best defensive centre in the comp.
Gee its grouse at hardware house!

Lui was good last night. We lost it up the guts.

Hohaia (spelling), Johnson, Maloney running off the hittups of the big men is where they got us.

he needed to zero in on the arm carrying the ball. Meteo's carry is a joke.

what about Groat losing the ball, then in the next set missing the tackle on Kevin Locke leading to the Warriors first try

lui made a few bad tackles but i noticed that he was only made to make some of those tackles due to our forwards making poor attempts. Groats jersey grabs and flannos air swings were poor!

He'll be better for it. Still very young and a quality halfback is hard to find.
