    Great to see Levi respond so well to a challenge by the coaching staff based off previous weeks. If he plays consistently to the level he did today, he’ll surely be earning the 9 jumper each week.

    Skd was solid out of our end. Eddy lee needs to take a leaf out of his book and run hard instead of powderpuffs.

    It wasn't a challenge. It was his natural game. Never was he coached to do that................

    Levi was the king of dummy half runs in under 20s when he was 17 years old - often only played for 40 or 50 minutes, but ran over 100 metres most games and was about our 3rd highest try scorer with his signature dive over tries most weeks.

    Lol. For someone who uses all-caps sentences, it’s a bit rich for you to call anyone thick. In any case, I agree that running the ball is Levi’s strength. He is a very good hooker when playing at his best, and he’s at his best when he’s running. The NZ team coach likely kept that in mind when laying down a challenge for him and creating a game plan with him, as did Brown with Levi for this match.

    As good as Pearce was today it was his effort in D that was outstanding. As a forward if you see your half back taking a hit up or leading the line speed it definitely lifts you.

    I don't know how anyone can watch Levi throughout his career and NOT come to the conclusion Brown put the shackles on him at the start of this year.

    Just let Levi do his thing. Ponga is very similar, Ponga has made some pretty low percentage plays but he gets away with it from the fans. But they will both mature and the low percentages will slowly disappear.

    Pearce had some very nice things to say about Levi in the post match on ground interview.

    May have had a couple. The beers aren't talking yet. Haven't had enough. As Billy has said Levi is a dummy half runner, all through 20's etc. It's what he did all night to get us on the front foot did he not?

    Looked more like the team from round 1 eh. Hope it continues next wk. Calling for coach to leave the shackles at home again. Let them be free!
