what about after the Warriors game when they were stranded in Auckland,and they come out and said that being stranded was a 'blessing in disguise' and it brought them 'closer together',and will have a positive affect? pfft all talk and no action






Yeah really positive

if memory serves,that was in a thread in regards to Robbie Farah coming out saying that their season started against Parra and that the time was now to make a move.I was simply giving an example of how in the past saying something like that didn't neccessarily mean much.Hardly consider that 'hijacking' a thread

We lost our next three games after that so really nothing wrong with the comment.

Lui should be persevered with as he has heaps of ability. He still looks like a kid to me...well, let's face it, he is. I think he will continue to improve in 2011 and will be a future star for us.

You and Daley should watch the game a bit closer. That pass to Fulton was on the last when he tried to take the line on and got caught what was he suppose to do die with the ball. He was ok tonight, not good just ok and he is our best option at the moment.

Lui still far from being a good. Although happy we got the win, it was far from convincing. Alot of luck went our way which flattered our scoreline. Still not 'happy Jan'. Hopefully, they can build on this and make something of the rest of the season. C'mon Tigers!

Thought he had a really good game last night, was strong in defence, ran the ball to the line, kicfking was great and despite what some make believe on here most if not all of his kicks were good and found open space. He busted tackles, through some nice passes and the offload that went forward was unlucky as his arm got hit just as he was throwing it - if it hadn't we would have been away. Definatly our best option at half and will be for a long time - I can see him developing into one of the best halves in the game and with a better pre-season next year not injured or facing court then I think he will have a great year next year

Decent spray! I think people on here including me just get frustrated at the performances week in week out from this side. Even last night they didn't play that great. I do think Benji played with confidence which is a good sign. I would still sway hip any day for either Cronk, Slater or Smith. Actually I would sway Farah and Marshall for Cameron Smith.

Better tonight, you can see his confidence gradually improving. Not much different to last year when he continued to improve throughout the year as his confidence improved.

Just thought a few times tonight they got their wires mixed. Tactic was to kick to get the wingers back and then run on the 5th - just thought they tried it at the wrong times with no enough depth in attack. Seemed like he was surprised to get the ball at times.

I was happy when he was tackled on 4th because he wouldn't be involved on the last! He wasn't horrible, but he needs to step up to make the 8.

His attack was patchy, some poor decisions, but he seemed alot better defensively last night.

Ive been critical of Lui all year, but thought he played well on saturday.

Him and benji controlled the game well and in the most part finished of our sets well enough.

Lui is not perfect, but if turns in what he did last night each week, ill be happy.

Have to agree with you Tigertales. Fulton was the one who butchered the pass to the outside man (Ayshford IIRC.)

I thought it was good thinking from Lui TBH, Ayshford breaks tackles fairly well, and if he did he would have been away.

My point is your coach had just told him to play a simple game plan (which the sideline eye said straight after Tonga scored). So how does he respond .
Instead of drilling the ball into the corner in wet conditions and make the Cowboys earn there way out of there own half ,he decides to run the ball on the last and then throws a pass that puts the next player (not a noted kicker ) under more pressure .
Is that what you want our playmaker doing when you are up by eight in the pouring rain when you are sitting on a 3 game losing stretch Tigertales and CB . Common sense says NO .
