Our Kicking game or lack really let's our team down. It's pointless having Lewis in the team if his big kicks don't find the grass but instead go straight down the throat of the fullback who starts their sets on the 30m line.

Interesting in press conference. Steve was talking about Lewis’s end of set options.

While we didn’t get the result I think Steve will make a good coach.

our kicking game is disgraceful lewis isnt up to first grade standard, foran doesn't test the line with short kicks

even if we had a hooker in the ennis style that can kick short grubbers in goal is another option, what we have now is very ordinary

People say he's a "nice guy" but he's pretty honest about the players and speaks his mind.

And yet some of the clowns on this forum gave Lewis a rating in the 3-2-1 players rating today. Honestly makes you wonder if they even watch the games.

As surprising as it may be to you and others, I thought Lewis had a pretty good game today. It's often hard to find the grass on a clearance kick. There are not many that do it consistently in the NRL. He linked well with our backs today and showed his class in defence again. If other players got a bagging as much as Lewis - we wouldn't field a team according to some.

There’s no point expecting our kicking game to improve as we don’t have anyone that can execute kicks. Lewis just boots and hopes while Foran, Wakeham and Cogger have the leg of a 6 year old.

The clowns that didn't think Lewis deserved any points in the 3-2-1 Obviously must think 14 other players played better and that is delusional.
Not saying Lewis played great but or should be our permanent half. We lost! but this was one of his better games and contributed to some good attack and some good defence.

He wasn't bad today. Our inability to score off 6 line dropouts in the second half was costly. And 2 errors leading to early tries had us on the back foot all game.

And as much as it was a poor decision for Tolman to take a quick tap, I have thought for a long time that we need to be more aggressive and take the tap more often. Just not so much when we're behind by 2.

Yep Jackson, Avo, Meaney, Ogden, RFM, Foran and Thommo were all better than Lewis today

Lewis kicks like he does because he doesn't know what he's doing
