Lawrence

Post by happy tiger » Tue 19 Mar, 2013 7:01 am

Did anyone at the game notice Lawrence limping off ??

They picked it up on ABC Grandstand and mentioned later about his right hamstring

You can see him for a brief second with the trainer during the Ch 9 coverage walking off

Has anyone heard anything ,as when I saw all the teams mentioned in this week v Parra thread everyone has named him

Ink , you usually pick most things up did you see anything at the game ,happened in the last 10 minutes

Probably would be a bleg in disguise if he were to be injured, considering he is playing pretty poorly

If you had my say, I would put Reddy in his place, or even Utai

I'm glad we don't have your say. Lawrence at 50% is > Reddy or Utai at 100%. I remember last time Reddy got a run in the centres and it was an abject display.

Reddy actually played well on Sunday. Far better than Utai.

Played pretty well on the wing on Sunday.

IMO Lawrence's problem is that he has very poor lateral movement. This would perhaps explain why he misses lots of tackles. For me, he needs to shift into the second row and model his game off Gareth Ellis. He certainly can hit hard enough but only when in the right position. I will never forget his hit on Fui Fui last year. We also all know that he can hit a hole.

The one thing that has always frustrated me about Lawrence is that he seems to be a very "timid" player. As much as I would love to see him bring more "hustle" to his game, I just don't think you can teach someone to be more aggressive.

Would love to see him develop a brutal "fend" to his game particularly if he stays in the centres.

Many on here call for him to play on the wing. I disagree. The guy fair dinkum would struggle to outleap Utai.

Hopefully Potter makes the tough call on Lawrence this year particularly if he keeps underperforming. I am a Lawrence fan but he has been disappointing lately. Perhaps a victim of complacency under the Sheens regime.

Chris Lawrence quite simply looks like he has not fully recovered from the dislocation injury.It could be either physically or mentally but he certainly has not looked the same player since.

Not talking about playing on the wing, talking about Reddy or Utai playing centre instead of Lawrence. Reddy was bug ordinary in centres any time during 2012.
