    GRAHAM Lowe believes Steve Matai’s omission from the New Zealand Test team to play Australia on Friday night is like “Queensland not picking Wally Lewis”.

    Very poor decision to leave him out. You only have to go back to the Warriors game 3 weeks ago and Matai ran rings around Mannering

    Comparing Mattai to Wally Lewis? Lowe must have been wearing his suit and tie and suffering from heat exhaustion when he made that remark.

    Please wear your polo shirt next time Graham.

    Mannering is a hack compared to Matai.

    Do the CEO's comments re: Stevie Matai constitute a massive dose of Loweperbole or Hylowebole?

    I actually like what the Kiwis do for this game (mid season test). Pick the young players for this game to have them ready for the 4 Nations at the end of the year.

    Then have a young experience team for when the World Cup roles around

    I am NOT a Queenslander but saw Lewis play live in SOO many many times.....a very gifted player, and an Immortal...sorry Eagle but overall he's streets ahead of Shoulders....perhaps not in defence but otherwise "chalk and cheese"

    I'll always remember his cowardly chuck the ball over my head play and his pure cheating during a rainy night in SoO where the softcock punted a dropout after misdirecting the refs,the ball flew 55 metres

    This on the same night as Crushers 5metre version

    I would of thought Matai would of been 2nd pick after Benji. Well NZ's loss is Manly's gain.

    no one has ever dominated origin like lewis,not even johns.kenny is his only competition.he was also one of the great defenders when it mattered.a certian darryl williams tackle comes to mind.he is one of a half dozen immortals and you reckon he can't play.please!
