Player Matt Lodge

Dunedin warrior

Obvious self discipline issues aside, he’s a top
signing. The challenge for Brown is managing to get the most of him both as a player and as a leader. Didn’t realize how good his passing game was until he got here.

Hard to believe he’s still only 26.
We’ve locked Addin Fonua-Blake in now if we could tie up lodge that would give us a very strong platform for the next few years- what should be their prime years really.
Still see him going to the dolphins but Addin Fonua-Blake extending has given me some hope.

The good vibes are encouraging. Last year players like Addin Fonua-Blake were staying grounded about the new recruits and how the would hopefully gel, this year there seems to be a confidence. Great article and awesome he thinks our youngsters are gonna kill it.

This could be Wiki/Price 2.0! Wait! Seuseu/Villasanti 2.0! It’s 2022! It’s almost like the Warriors 2002! Young Fullback, Experience 7, skill full second rowers and quick wingers. Nahhh I’m getting way ahead of myself. Lol

Each time I see this thread, I get concerned before I open it in case it says he's leaving the club. He and Addin Fonua-Blake are a front row you want to build a pack around.

I like the idea of keeping this pack together.
The way the games gone with a lot more ball movement through the middle, combinations are going to be important with the short passing and all that.
It’s got the makings of a good pack and most of them are on the way up.

Get the same feeling with various player or administrator threads when they randomly come up.

Also the Naughty Chair thread as I'm usually thinking what embarrassing thing has a player done now.

He is elite level. He was immense in the trial. Hope he wants to stay.
When he gets 50+ minutes he’s gold. Makes 150 meters on most occasions and offers an offload.

Considering where only paying around $400k for him, I don’t think there’s anyone else around on that money that’s offering what he does.

Really, really hope he stays. Would offer him $600k for 2024 (would then work out $500k for both 2023 and 2024) in the hopes that keeps him here longer

Agreed. He plays big minutes of quality.

One of the only ones who can hold their heads up this year.
