Thanks for the reply and clarifying your position with Lawton.Jazz is not a hooker, so you cannot compare the two, but for a backup hooker Lawton to be hooked and replaced by Jazz that is not even a Hooker anymore says something
The point is next year should Luke not be there and Lawton is his replacement, you will see a complete drop in Warriors
Replacing Luke in his present form with any Hooker and not expecting a drop in performance...might only be realistic if that man was Smith.
Lawton as our lead hooker won't work.
Lawton and Roach ? maybe...just maybe one of those two are yet to bloom. ..I can see why they are gambling on it since to my way of thinking getting an old dog like a Nathan Friend is not really what's best for the club long term.
