Lote becoming a 'liability'

Post by citizen cub » Sat 05 May, 2012 9:49 pm

Well, he's had a terrific career, achieving the highest in both League and Union, but I think we have seen the best of Lote. Unfortunately, injuries have gotten the better of him, his pace and agility have been badly impacted upon by that freak ankle injury he sustained again the Knights last year. I hope he regains it, if someone could defy the odds, it's him, but I just don't know.

So sad, he had a great season in 2010, proved he was worth EVERY cent, scored a bag of tries (one of the leaders in the competition), great marketing tool for the club and popular with the fans, it was a 'preview' of what was to come over the next two seasons, unfortunately, they've been hampered by injuries.

Still plenty of time to improve as the season proceeds, but at this point in time, I'd have to say I wouldn't re-sign Lote.
With Wests in the finals, ANYTHING'S POSSIBLE

Was awful, its like a boxer having a few too many fights, he should retire now and let us remeber his brilliance.

Simple game plan against us, Coach Mr Magoo and his assistant Stevie Wonder even know all you gotta do is get 30 or 40 out from our line and hoik it up.

Off you go Lotto...take Sheens and his cronies with you.

He was 'becoming' a liability in 2011. He IS a liability in 2012.

He must be dropped. Just is not up to it.

Couldn't help think the same unfortunately. everything he touches turns to crap. He has achieved amazing things and had a fantastic career in both codes and has been among the elite in both. But now he just isnt up to it anymore, age is getting to the poor guy and it's probably time to hang up the boots

He's a great guy, but he is just past it. He wasn't very good last year albeit plagued by injuries, and he's just carried that bad form this year. It's hard to see him getting back into form.

I think we need to start looking at promoting a junior and deciding what we can do with the money he will free up.

Lote going nowhere but as we all know should of been dropped last week unfortunatly third party agreements will keep Lote on the paddock thats how it works.

Lote should become the 5th wiggle

Add mathematics to his homework. Sick of him drifting infield in defense and leaving 2 or 3 blokes on his outside. It can't be that hard to count the numbers and mark your own man.

At times tonight, he resembled a bloke who has never played on the wing before. He is constantly caught out of position. He has hands like feet and is far too slow. Watch him live. ...he is miles behind our blokes who are not renowned speedsters.

Agree 100%. He should be at full match fitness by now, but his reads in defence and attack are poor and he looks more likely to make a mistake and than anyone else in the side at the moment.

Time to blood Koroibete.

Again with the backline going as well as a second hand lawnmower lets blame Lote

I must admit he needs some massive improvements with his hands in a hurry

Too slow, his defensive reads are getting worse and his hands are terrible
