I thought there was a lot to like about his game tonight. He no longer has the acceleration or light feet to manufacture a break when theres nothing on, but when our offensive structures are going well he benefits because he's still one of the best hole running centres and runs great lines when in form.

I'm not sure he'll ever get them right as the hammies stem from his hip. He'll have issues with them for the rest of his career. In saying all that though, if he can build on tonights effort he'll be on the right track,

True mate, Hodges has had issues with his for years. Lawrence is one of the most professional guys I've ever met, he's got a business in fitness, so I'm sure he does everything to look after his body. I'm not to worried about him getting back to form and have backed him for a long time when others have said to move him on so I hope he doesn't make me look like a fool haha.

he looked way better tonight, in attack and defence

he's taken a step back towards a starting centre spot, and away from a 2nd row position or an axing

Best game in a while. He's looking more dynamic and confident.

I thought he was great last week and solid last night. He did rush up in defence that contributed to the Bukuya try though. Didn't seem confident to pivot and try to tackle him....would have been unlikely to have stopped him anyway I suppose. But, he's sure looking better than he was pre-injury this year.

If Lewis wasn't his opposite number I think he/we would have ripped it up last night

The difference between Benji and him is Rowdy shuts his mouth and let his football does his talking for him. He leaves it to others to judge. What I like about him is his back is up, his head is down. He takes criticism in his strike and try his best, thus he has been improving in each game. Unfortunately some others think tha mouths win games.

I've believed for a long time that he's the next captain of this club. You nailed it, no ego whatsoever, great spokesperson for the club, and doesn't put himself before the club like some others.

Lawrence had a great game last night in both halves and looked like he is back to his dangerous old self. Made a clean break, should have had a try and the pass for Simonas try was awesome. He looked strong in defence and was more agile and looked quicker and his injury worries are hopefully behind him

You should stay off the Kool-Aid during the game.

Lawrence was very good last night.
