Fucking hell Mutts. It's only a 2 week suspensions but because he did it twice in the last 2 years it becomes a 4 game suspension (plus 63 cary over points he already had)
 
Eventually I believe it will become accepted by this forum that Lolohea isn't offering much because the bloke playing next to him at centre is incapable of feeding him quality ball. But hey for now the general populous is of the opinion that Lolohea is playing next to a defensive genius so I guess it's Lolohea that is the problem.

Case in point, 1st half against the Bronco's, Warriors hot on attack 10 meters out an unmarked Lolohea is left cold on the right edge as Ayshford takes on both Reed and Oates and is easily stopped short of the line. A simple shuffle through the hands and the Warriors grab another 4 pointer 12-12 with the kick to come. I'd be more impressed if he could put his winger in space than if he could jag a line break by running at the line every time he gets the ball.

Don't we have a bloke sitting in NSW Cup that can do that already!

Rugby league project website from memory - I pulled it together ages ago when I was having a completely rational and mature debate with OMG regarding the merits of his signing.

Now we are two rounds in, one question I would be interested in knowing the answer to... did he defend on the same side as Robson at the sharks? That could explain that ratio all by itself ;).

In all seriousness, Ayshford was an experienced depth signing. I think everyone would be happy if Hurrell and Kata were both outtraining and outplaying him. The fact he has by all accounts trained hard enough to put himself in contention can only be applauded.

I am happy he is in the squad. Hurrell should be in the 17 this week though.

You referring to the guy who gave Lolohea his only highlight of the year so far with a pass out in front in rd 1? Konrad wouldn't have given it.

Don't let your ayshford hate influence everything, wing isn't tuis long term position, they are just shoehorning him there.

It's not hate for Ayshford, more just blinded love for Konrad

Surely whoever represents Ben Matulino at the tribunal can just play footage of James Grahams shoulder charge on Reagan Campbell-Gillard then just get up and walk out of the room???

Ben won't be suspended. That charge is a joke. MTW you are right though, if Ben played for the Bulldogs (I've noticed they get away with blue murder), it wouldn't be on the charge sheet.

Does Ben Matulino play for Todd Greenbergs old club? No? Guilty!

We probably won't even challenge it, can't risk him gone for a month, thats the really annoying part

In a perfect world yes. With a fair commonsense judiciary yes.
But C'mon this is the NRL so bye bye Benny

Contest it. Jim Doyle to represent Ben Matulino himself. Ben will probably get off and have his past points wiped clean with an apology letter...

If hurrell isn't picked I've lost faith

I think everyone's forgetting he's NOT a winger lol.. It isn't his position. Too skilled, hasn't got the necessary winger speed, can't defend on the edge. He played good most the time on the game over the weekend for sure, but he's definitely out of position. He should replace Robson who we all know makes too may errors on O. He can BARELY defend in the middle and most of all doesn't oppose a threat on O.
