The Logic behind Lawrence will we see it again

I’m still stunned at Lawrence playing at five eight When we came back from half time I was sure sanity would prevail

I was wrong Can anyone give me a good reason why Sheens did that for ?? Seriously ??


My only reasoning (and it was as a joke) that Sheens got lucky during the Brisbane game in Brisbane and thought seeing he was back in Qld he would try it again for old time sake 😮

If Sheens plays him there in two weeks time against the Warriors he is a madman

I don’t see why Humble was dropped in the first place. It wasn’t his fault that we leaked 30 points in 12 minutes. I think Sheens put Lawrence at 5/8 for shits and giggles.

Our halves should read 6. Marshall 7. Miller against the Warriors if we want a decent shot at winning this thing.

Lawrence will be a better 5/8 than Fittler Daley Lockyer and Lewis. Sheens is a genius Lawrence will be wearing the sky blue no 6 jersey for game 2.

Sheens is giving himself a pay on the back tonight thinking he pulled a masterstroke, we were pathetic, that win can go down to farah and farah only

Sheens is a fool and past it……everyones starting to see it.

Im guessing he wanted someone to straigten the backline attack - more direct - all it caused was farah running towards the sideline all night.

Have to agree with smoking gun, Robbie Farah what a captains knock. Did it all himself, also made benji look second rate. Deserves an origin spot but selfishly it would be good if he just played tigers games. Thought woods was fantastic and ayshford really stepped up looked really good against idris.

Not impressive but a wins a win and it was great to finally see a live win for us qld tiger fans.

Whatever the reasoning behind that selection, it was proved to be incorrect. Lawrence was, as predicted by people on this forum who are not professionals but nonetheless astute judges, completely ineffectual as 5/8. The whole team suffered as a result. Did we have more than 2 backline movements in the entire game? Crazy stuff.

The only thing Sheens has achieved by this woeful decision to play Lawrence at 5/8 is that we will probably still have Rowdy in the team come Origin time - selfish!

Humble is not fantastic yet effective as Halfback. Benji is a genuine 5/8 and should not be playing first receiver. Even give Miller a run if they have to, but Lawrence is not a 5/8.

in general I think Lawrence is far more suited to centre than 5/8, but thought he was pretty good tonight, he is starting to find some form.
Also best game that Ayshford has played all year.

My guess is he wanted to play Reddy, Lawrence and Blake, and this was the best way for him to do so.

with Marshall the only play makng half created issues, particuarly on 5th tackle, so cant see todays set up continuing

I hardly noticed lawrence out there tonight except for a few wobbly passes when the tiges were spreading the ball.
I dont get the logic with this experiment. If sheens persists with this combination, where does that leave anasta next year?
Or will anasta play 6 marshall 7 and lawrence will go.back to the centres after wasting this year at 5/8?

No cohesion in the backline with Lawrence @ 6. Not his fault, after 2 wins Humble should never have been benched. Sheenius strikes again.

Thought Lawrence played well at five eight to be honest especially in only his second game their (he did play five eight against penrith when we won 30 nil remember) . My problem with it is that benji hates playing halfback even if only asked to play the same game as at five eighth -let’s be honest humble has been ok but fairly ineffective in both attack and defence but not bad and if thats all we want Mose well have a big strong bloke like Lawrence and bring the sills of ayshford into the game l also I get the feeling humble was injured or I’ll and hence the late change especially given he didn’t play and we were away so desperate measures as we couldn’t bring anyone up from nsw cup

I thought it was Lawernces strongest game of the season & I also think he was put there to get more touches of the football in space.
Personally I would rather Rowdy in the centers & Humble at 1/2 but Lawence at second reciever is not as bad as what everyone is making out

I am usually pretty positive about Sheens and everything to do with the Tiges, try to see the bright side of every decision etc

but this was just madness
