You're right there Ron, but lets consider when we've had Moltz or Lui in at #7 we've won (including the last 9 games of last year,) 14 out of 19 games. We win 75% of our games with either of them in the #7.

The real issue here is the lack of a halfback to direct the side.
Just because it's soap doesn't mean it's clean.

Return Lawrence to the left edge where he belongs. If Lui isn't fit, then make a decision to either bring in Nichols or Waters and use them as a shifter, a link man to Marshall allowing him to play his customary running 5/8th role. How hard is it to seriously replace a specialist with a specialist? A 7's role does not change at any level of the game. Wests need a first receiver. It's as simple as that. Farah orchestrates the attack from the ruck, which results in less pressure off a halfback's role in the Wests Tigers structure. Stop messing with the dynamics

Lui is a far better half than Moltz will ever be - better running game, better passing game, better kicking game, and better defensive game. he should be back in the next week or two and things will be hunky dory.

lawrence was there to fill a hole and did OK. 2 from 2 with him at 6. i'm not complaining.
The team is better off with Moltz at 7, the record speaks for itself ;)

Yep, that.

And on Moltzen v Lui - it was relevant when the two were in the team. Moltz is unfortunately gone for the season. The argument is pointless.

exactly...why move lawry and have him pretty much play an irrelevent catch pass game?.....nicholls lazo or waters could of done that...all lawry did was drift and drop pass all night

Bad decision to play him at 6 especially with Marshall at 7. With a dominant halfback he might (MIGHT) work at 6, but not with a player like Marshall there. It would be like the Dragons playing Soward at halfback and Gasnier in the 6.

I am with Gobbs! If you have a half missing, then you have to give your lower grade half a shot. If he is not good enough then why have him there? I was of the understanding that having a lower grade was to have players we could bring up and blood them.

They may not look like much in reserves, but it is amazing what can happen if you just give them a shot! Where are our Michael Browns and Matt Parishes from reserve grade?? (sorry, I know I have gone back a fair way!!). Our Michael Moss, our Steve Benkic..........

I tend to agree with swapping a half for a half but the reality is that few clubs do this in the modern game. We are hardly an exception.
