    Hi guys

    Anyone know what's up with Laurie? Is he still playing in the lower grades?

    Maybe Gould could get someone to steer him in the right direction. I know not every raw talent makes it but the guy definitely had something to offer.

    Cheers

    I thought there was some disciplinary problems.

    he is listed this weekend for Windsor, he went to France in the off season to get match fitness and suffered a knee injury which the French club refused to have dealt with and made him play and on his return he required surgery to get it sorted out.

    not sure if he is contracted for next year .But doubt he will get a new offer given he has rarely been near first grade and penrith are clearly looking to free money up

    I am afraid the signing of Dane Laurie was always going to be high risk and sadly it was not money well spent. His career in the NRL is over and I think it unlikely there will be any clubs out there who will give him another shot. CRL gig for Dane I suspect.

    Throw him to Wayne Bennett at the Knights next year. I'd love to see what could be made of him. Seriously, if Bennett can turn Cuthbertson around, Laurie will be a piece of cake.

    There is no way someone as astute as Wayne Bennett would take on Dane Laurie.

    Dane has been disappointing. Despite injury, he none the less hasn't done anything he still has a future at the top level.

    Watched the replay Balmain V Wolves yesterday.

    Laurie had a couple of good hit-ups but you could see that he is quite a few weeks off 1st grade.

    He will get there given the chance.

    Yeah. He was good but only playing 20mins won't get him in 1st grade. Showed promise but we are 1/2 way through the season so is way behind the 8 ball.

    On the game is it replayed anytime? I forgot to record it

    Tell that to Cuthbertson, who lost about 12 kilo's, shaved, stopped being a pussy and started to put in both at training and on the field. AND he cut out the stupid passes he used to do.

    I'm not suggesting that Bennett will go out of his way to sign him, but if the Knights got him for $75k and Bennett sat him down for a long hard chat, I think he would be worth some time.

    Laurie is an enigma. My 78 year old mum would be a better proposition on the footy field than him. He needs to get a haircut and have a good long hard look at himself in the mirror.
