    First time I have ever watched this guy play today.

    Wow what a bludger and crapshoot this bloke is. In 30 minutes virtually no hitups (and none of substance), a penalty for pulling a guy stupidly over the sideline, and a dropped ball that led to a try while he was having a rest behind the line.

    I didn't know Gould could bear such a grudge.

      First time you've watched lewis brown play? The Nz utility/second rower, former warriors work horse! Don't get me wrong I questioned the signing of him as we have players that fit his mould (buhrer,Leary). Bludger he is not! The rabbits can make the best of players look silly!

        LOL running around like a goose near the end of the half missing tackles. Can't read the play.

        Whats this at halftime?. 4 hitups for 30 metres and 9 tackles?. These are Hasson numbers.

            First time you've ever seen him play eh?
            May I suggest reserving judgement until you have given the guy a few games at least.

            I've never seen Barrett coach either, but I won't be judging him on his first half of footy as an NRL coach

              Not a huge fan, but in all fairness that is the worst 40 I've seen him play. He usually comes into his own on the fringes when the big blokes tire.

                Writing off a player you have seen once (and after 40 minutes)...that is a first

                    Gus certainly got the best out of this deal.Whilst Brown is a solid player,he is in the very same mould as Leary and Buhrer but is 4 yrs older than those blokes.Whats more he is another clubs reject,which I suppose manly has had some success with in the past but I thought they were heading in a different direction.If I was Buhrer or Leary I'd start worrying

                    Harsh to judge him on a half of football, he has been consistent for the Riff. I would think he will be an asset to our team moving forward.

                      He's a good solid player, not someone to get overly excited over.

                        He is a 6/10 player across the board.
                        Personally dont see why he was signed as there are already the smaller agile type backrowers & the more powerful dynamic backrower would have been a better fit imo.
                        Certainly wont be shocking, just not great....

                        G'day new member, just thought id introduce myself. I think lewis brown should be on the bench and used as an impact player, he is definitely not a lemon just needs to have one position for a game, this afternoon he has been in the centres. If we have the same injuries as this year he will prove priceless!

                          Praps he 's 'doing a Foz' and is actually resting, thinking about next year . . . . Nate Myles has also looked pedestrian recently, since when he signed for us.

                          He has made 20 metres more than Glen Stewart and scored a try.

                            I tend to agree, as with two less interchanges next year the lighter/faster forwards like Brown (in the Buhrer/BoChoc of old mould) will come into their own.

                            Well that's the theory anyways!

                            He has just scored! He has some good play in him.
