Utai - Sensational as always

Feel free to stay on the sidelines as long as you want Lote. Or at least go to fullback.

As far as im concerned, Utai proved he shouldnt be in the team with the try he bombed.Any other winger in the club would have scored. Brown or Keroibete must come in. We need a finisher, not an extra forward

Totally agree... and the sharks targetted him in attack and it was lucky they bombed it on that occaision as Rowdy wasn't close enough to help out.

Deadset, utai along the sideline trying to stay in was like watching an elephant trying to corner at speed. The bloke is as agile as concrete and i think it moves faster as well

As a minimum Brown must be in the run on side either in the 1 or 5

He did what he always does well and ran the ball hard like a backrower.
Unfortunately all the stuff a winger should be doing, not so much.
On the bus or under it!
Your choice.

You are all too hard on him. At least he holds onto the ball. More than I can say for one L. Tuquiri. Anyway you will all get your way once our buy of the century is declared fit.

He was left stranded once when the Sharks put up s high ball but other than that he was ok.

Don't know how he had a great game. Cost the Tigers a try through lack of pace. He did play ok though overall.

You guys have picked the wrong game to attack Utai. He was strong in defence, positioned himself well most of the arvo and did a top job to almost score that try.

Crap call that anyone would have scored that try Sirro...he had millimeters to work in and just failed.

If you want to bag someone, Lawry and Aysh were our two worst. They were given a lesson on how to play the position today by two guys who everyone bagged out last week.

Made good "dirty metres" today....thought he played strong

He did everything he could to try and score that try....had no room to work in.

One of our best - especially in terms of effort.

Ayshford, Lawrence and Moltzen all go over the coals before him.

Stryker just on the bombed try, take another look at it mate. Utai hit the ball at pace with the line wide open and decided to run into the in goal 2 metres giving the opposition a chance to push him out. I have no doubt any other winger at the club scores that try easy by diving or just by being faster. I agree with the rest of your post.

That actually happened right in front of me and I am pretty sure he put a foot on the line before the tryline, he took the extra steps trying to stabilise himself. There was no room there and he almost pulled it off. I am not going to be critical of that.

For some reason today, the boys were standing dangerously close to the sideline. Remember the first half where Beau was over the line when he caught the ball? Certainly seemed a tactic. Flirting with the line is very risky and we stuffed up a number of times due to it.
