Lawton is way more powerful than I expected....was kind of thinking he was all about explosive running from dummy half, but in the Current game, could create 1000 nightmares around the middle as a handful and has vision to support and run Super lines
This bloke is a pure footballer and a good 1....my young fella thought he was similar to Buhrer in form back in the day and its not far off...

He is a gun. He also allows you to pick a specialist utility on the bench as well as him. Great cover for a number of positions.
Gun. Just the type of player we have been missing. Real work horse, great post contact metres, very good defence, runs good lines, gets in and does the hard stuff and can play multiple positions in the backs or forwards.

Great buy!

How good is his post contact metres and hits hard too. Very impressed with this guy.

Why?

Now we have Manase Fainu maybe going to jail and not playing at least to mid year
and Karl Lawton who won't play all year with a ruptured achilles - SO DUMB

Our recruitment has been AWFUL ! Are they TRYING to piss all our salary cap up the wall?

Love, love, LOVE when he sneaks into dummy half.

You've come around...

He has been a v good buy for us, especially with all the injuries

He is fast becoming a favourite player of mine. I love how he is firing up and charging in breaking tackles and most importantly making some big tackles.

Helps I seem to have a penchant for hookers.........no no I mean the position.. then again 🤔

reminds me so much of the cheese
He is clearly our very own "Hectic Fromage" ;) Previously (when he was a part-time underwear model, and parttime footballer) he was known on the Goldie as "Becks" as in Posh and Becks (see below)
but I also think his style of play is very similar to "The Cheese". Definitely a keeper, and a fantastic recruitment decision as well.

So on all the Facebook pages the women are frothing themselves over Lawton. My mrs was more keen on his bro but nonetheless the women seem to rate this guy and not for his football ability
