    Agree completely Thirteen. Patience.

    I think he will be right.

        Clunky is fine though, like you say he's still learning new combos and we've got to remember he was out for most of the pre-season.

        I've said it a lot now but sometimes I think his workrate hurts him, he's got some real quality in his play, he doesn't need to be making 35 tackles a game.

          I thought he had a great game! Did what was expected of his run-on debut which was not to overplay his hand.

              Players will learn even when they've played 200+ games. Friend had Manu running in to a massive gap yet passed to Ikuvalu. Friend knew it too - he'll learn.

                It would be nice if he looked over at the opposite edge and saw some of the tough carries his skipper was taking

                  Lams mistake was hogging that ball going for glory for a try but apart from that he was ok for his first game. He will be back for the SOO period and he will learn from this.

                      Didn’t play well today but now has a match on the big stage in front of 38k fans under his belt

                      great to have if Cronk or keary goes down pre semis. Clever move Robbo

                        I wouldn’t be criticising the kid after an off game today,he will learn from it and become a better player for it..

                        In saying that when Cronk calls it quits I would prefer Brock Lamb partnering Keary in the halves as opposed to Lammy!

                        I think Brock has the higher upside and could turn into a special 6 or 7 under Trent!

                          Time will tell but let’s cut the crap, he was little more than a passenger today. Our club is quite ruthless and they won’t wait all season for him to produce in First Grade before considering other options for next year.

                            My opinion playing five eight is such a crucial position. He is only a kid and was involved in one of the hardest games of the year. Has a lot to learn but has potential, needs minutes to mature.

                                Well done Lammy today. You will only get better.
                                Remember Matt Ikuvalu's first game this year? We all had him cut from the squad!

                                I'll back you.
