The best move on the Lawrence/ Tequiri side was in the 78th minute.

Whats wrong with the team?
No ticker.

They think they don't have to try because Benji will do some miracle no look-banana-cutout- flick pass that will save the day. With the exception of a few of hard workers (Ellis,Hino,Fulton&Flanagan) they don't want to work for their points.
They should go for a work experience stint to cronulla to see what its like to have to work hard for a win.
Perhaps we need blokes who played in the 90's with Wests or Balmain like Hodgo ,Senter or skando to tell them what its like to be in a team of nuffies and to have to try to win with grit and determination only and try to get them of their gen Y butts and get some balls.

howabout move fitzhenry to state cup where he belongs where he can guide the younger guys with his experience from there.

Ask Robbie... he's our captain. Past that he is also the one responsible for stearing the side away from the left side of the field...

He comes out of the line too quickly, simple as that. His opposition are then in and behind him.

I do know that Lawrence is seen as some what of geek amongst the other players and doesnt tend to socialise with them outside of football but i dont think that that is affecting how he plays as it has been like that since day one... I think he is just in a bad patch of form at the moment, It happens to all players he will get his mojo back i just hope its sooner rather then later

Lawrence is a major talent. Remember the things he has done in the past with the ball. His debut v Brisbane, the try out of nothing v Storm at Gosford. The match winning 80m trys he scores against Dragons at ANZ in 07(?) and the Storm at Leichardt last year. He just doesn't see any of the ball. And when he does it is off a pass that goes over his head or behind him. He is a tall bloke yet no bombs or attacking kicks are sent in his direction. His talent is wasted in this team. No wonder his confidence might be down.

He's also an immense athlete.

I can see him taking somewhat of a Luke Lewis transformation in the future, he'll come in field and play in the back row looking for more ball and become an awesome angle and hole runner.

When he first started playing he was hitting holes and making line breaks and running 60-70-80 meters to score untouched. now it seems his attack has gone missing. also, i dont know why we do not direct most of our attack towards the lawrence/tuqiri side. it seems we are obsessed with getting the ball to fitzy, who cant score at the best of times.

Maybe 1 of the playmakers in Farah thinks that right is the way to go....I mean big fat Dave Taylor was defending in the centres.....

He was mostly on the wing when he was scoring those long range tries.

Why's that? He seems like a pretty cool guy.
