I had to laugh at that one, though this season he has justified some of his reputation.

i can tell you that the RLW version will have one J Lyon up the top of the "most over rated" list which will be dissapointing.

this will be a media agenda in the coming weeks as this will sell a lot of papers much like the Braith Anasta over rated tag did.

I must say Braith was the Lone Ranger for the roosters last night as he often is.

While Lyon may have not lived up to early expectation im hoping he does a Locky and settles into 5/8 nicely!

Did Anasta play? Was at the game, but seriously no rooster stood out.
Pepsi, your comment on Lyon whilst might be dissappointing, he probably at this point of time deserves the tag. He has had 3/4 of a season to "settle in," he needs to stand up and live up to his reputation of being the Super Leagues best back.... hopefully we will see it in action before the semi finals.

I agree with Pepsi, Lyon is the latest bandwagon along the lines of Anasta, Ryles etc

Anasta did play Mellon, without him and Fitzgibbon we would have put 70-80 on them last night

mate Anasta was a massive standout last night for thyr roosters, while it all didnt go his way he played his backside off. Unfortunately he is surrounded by duds.

i kind of compare Lyon coming from super league to 5/8 in NRL to Locky going from fullback to 5/8, remember Locky was a dud 5/8 for a year and a half, he goes ok now.
