If he’s a muso - I’m an astanaught… dunno if you saw it mate, but it was absolute garbage… sounded like a bag of wet cats.
knowing who he was, and his position at within the club it was emabarrasing - can’t believe he put himself in that position.

Yes and he had the people inside him creating twice as many opportunities….

Thats the issue.

Not much different to Darius Boyd in Origin.

Doesnt make him a bad player just makes him about the same as what we already have.

Finally… Somone tell me how many of them tries Corey Thompson would have scored…
ALL of them!!, And probably a few more.

We need someone who can create and get us out of trouble…
There’s better out there than Jennings - Especially for the money

Yesterday’s hero. 2014 was 4 years ago. Marshall outplayed him this year which says a lot.

No he didn’t… Hayne was injured a good chunk of the year

I don’t think Lawrence would make the starting side for any team other than us. He’s ok, but no better than who everyone else has. He can’t break the line other than occasionally 5m out from the line. No power in attack or defence.

Exactly!! In fact I think there are back rowers coming off the bench in some teams that are better footballers - and it hasn’t taken them 12 years of first grade to get there…

He’s been playing in the backrow for 12 years? That’s news to me.

Said back row did I?

Fact is - I’d be surprised if he’s not in the bottom 4 starting second rowers in the game…
And he’s our “best”? - I see that as a real issue…

Who is better than him ? On the left edge I’d have Kikau, Wade Graham (pretty close) & Tariq Sims (pretty close). I see Lawrence as one of the better edge second rowers in the game at the moment. He runs great lines with speed and power on that left edge and he makes his tackles most of the time.

He was probably our best forward last year and he is no plodder. Plus he is a good guy.

One in every bunch…
I havent put much thought into which edge, just back rowers in general…
But at a quick guess - If i’m thinking left edges… Boyd Cordner, Joel Thompson comes to mind, as does Gavin Cooper… John Sutton, Tohu Harris, Tapine - Blokes like Gillett and Aubusson (played both) even Fellas like Ma’u, Glenn, Hoffman and Guerra are on par with him…

I get the loyalty and all that - I really do… But loyalty don’t equal numbers.

You’d be the only guy i’ve ever heard of have Wade Graham, Tariq Sims and Chris Lawrence there or there abouts on par…

I think that basically every player you mention is on par or worse than Lawrence. There are areas within our team that we need to improve on but I don’t see that position as being a problem.

I know sometimes that fans overrate certain players but I also think that fans underrate certain players. Brooks is a guy who has been underrated for a while and Lawrence is another that fits that category. You see Tariq Sims play a great game and forget when Lawrence played a great game. Tariq Sims isn’t consistently great. If you were talking about Frizzel that is a different story. Frizzel is a gun. Lawrence isn’t in Frizzel’s class but he is probably the best edge backrower in the game.

Soo… the guy that just won a premiership and captained the national side - is on par or worse than Chris Lawrence…

I think you need to get off the bong bro…

I get all the love for Chris - really I do…… He’s part of the furniture.
This year, He’s had his best season in forever.
Great clubman and all that - Although I never really remember if any other club ever chased him
(Maybe back in 09-10 When we let Collis go)

And he’s our “best”? - I see that as a real issue…
Signing him for a few more years (At whatever cost) is more so an issue… Not for the money - But the spot he takes.
We’re very short on quality in that area - Matterson fixes that to an extent.
I’m very excited about his signing - People forget he was a half a couple years ago… He’s been solid in the second row and will certainly bring a bit of footy to the edge. We have one of the Better halves in thre game - And the poor bugger has never had any real class either side of him - yet we wonder why he struggles.

Get some powerful second rowers and please don’t forget a strike centre or 2 (for the 9th year running)

Honestly, it’s illuminating at how thin-skinned and sensitive we all are.

In the real world, if you had plans of changing employers in 2 years or when your contract runs out, do you think the boss and your fellow employees would tell you to leave now? Would they get so offended that you want to work for a different company and call you names?

This is one of the modern issues with Western society, we are too readily offended and almost eager to be outraged.

Until he’s gone IC is our coach. Afterwards, whenever that happens to be, go hard. But until then a dose of reality may do wonders!

You’ve obviously never held a job with any level of importance…
I can assure you in the industry I’m in - if you declare at any point, that you are to be employed by a competing firm… you’re generally escorted off the premises, regardless of how much notice you give
