    Well done Stephen Kearney, officially turned the club around in 1 year. 7 wins in 9 rounds, equal the whole 2017 season.

    Johnson can’t catch a break, just as his running game and confidence came back to life. Luke and Blair as well- we just can’t seem to win without an adversity.

    Very very happy for Lawton. Let’s hope our 2018 depth takes us to a few more W’s in the coming weeks.

    Great way to bounce back from the team

    Can't ask for much more than that really

    What a dream debut for Karl Lawton

    Only real concern is the injuries ... let's hope they're nothing too serious

    Just glad Lawton is in.

    Too good to be wasted in ISP.

    Different type of Hooker to Luke but just as handy in his own way.


    Hoping the injured boys come back solid.

    Love the game. hate the injuries. Lawton was great , hope he is consistent and can do 80 because we now need him.
    Blair and SJ didn't look too bad. Luke is the worry. fancy being worried about the knee and popping a shoulder.

    I gave them a b. There is still a lot to work on and while the warriors were ok.. The tigers were out of sorts.

    The defence was a highlight.. But Hiku is a defensive liability.. Is he there because of his ablity to work that right side on attack?

    They are assessing SJ injury but the word is that he is gone for the season.

    Well played after the clinic the storm put on last week. Was worried about this game, but I shouldn't have been. The wazzas duly delivered.

    Good to be back in the winning circle.

    Lawton's tries were cool to see. Sure they were the winning tries cementing the win but also it looked like everyone was happy for him. Good to see the camaraderie, looked like a guy that has blended into the squad really well.

    Its as if Hiku only likes doing freakish passes in traffic to set Fusitua up for tries.
    If it’s simple draw and pass he dummies and bombs certainties.
    Such an enigmatic player.

    Shithouse.

    Hes glass these days.

    I'd be tempted to try Lawton or Tohu there....but then Lukes bloody broken as well.

    rated a B

    mostly coz of Lawton wearing James Gavet's shorts.

    looked like MC Hammer out there.

    Great bounce back win- against a team that’s been in the top four most of the year.
    Great to see us kicking off the shackles a bit more especially with SJ running on the last but it did cause us to lose our way a little.
    Little bit concerning with the injuries but Luke and Blair looked ok on the sideline, SJ I’m not sure he walked off but you could see him mouth “fuck” as if he was worried. This year though we seem to have solid back ups.
    Lawton had dream debut hope he keeps going.
    Best thing for me was seeing the defence bounce straight back.
    Now for the Drags to Loose tomorrow!
