Ryan should be nowhere near this side.

I remember when Brown came to us last year and was hugely impressive.

and one of my favourite players at the club, good under the high ball, excellent defensively, like Utai is a pain to put down.

With some solid game time I honestly think that in a few weeks it will be a case of Lote Who? (That being said he is a much better fullback then winger.

Brown would be in the starting backline of any other team in the comp every week.

He is big, strong, fast, awesome under the high ball and makes good decisions in defence. What else can you ask for in a back?

Hahaa good call.

His contract expires with us this year doesn't it? I'd expect someone like souffs or parra to throw big money at him

Great game - plenty of people (including me)had been saying from the beginning he should have been there instead of Utai - glad I was proved wrong about Utai but still think Brown should stay in the starting team somewhere.
Hard to move him to fullback with McKinnon going great as well- looks like he will stay on the wing

he was outstanding last night, when he retrieved the loose ball and brought it back in the field of play, i was like wow! that was really good :)

He had a blinder! Well done mitch!

And Matt Utai also played out of skin too taking on huge guys like inglis lol!

And McKinnon was great too, the list is huge lol, but when he had to chop the legs to stop that try near the end i was like well done *Applause.

With Daniela gone for the season with a pectoral tear Mitch should be next in line for left centre with Sammy Latu on the wing - unless Sheensy gives Josh Davis a run!

Super reliable, excellent player to bring in when we have injuries. Should move into the centres with Daniella out.

He was one of our best at the end of last year. Good to see him back in FG.

I never knew Beau Ryan was a centre....

Thinking about it now, that would make sense and save his job.

Keep Brown on the wing, and get beau to play centre in lieu of Daniella until Lawrence is back (christ, here we are discussing replacements for replacements, for replacments)

This of course if Beau is back next week....

He is a great worker, great under the high ball, sometimes doesn't read the plays but most often does. He is a gem.

One thing I think he may be missing is communication, and also positioning, Sandow got a 40/20 on his side of the wing, and kept targeting that side.

Brown was great last night, defused several dangerous kicks and ran the ball hard as usual. I'd like the Tigers to keep him, but if they're throwing $500k per season at Blair then it's hard to see them offering Brown an extension - on the provision they get Blair.

For what it's worth I throw in my appreciation as well for the great game Mitch played last night, carried on from last year.
