Was anyone else impressed by him? I thought he was, arguably, the best player of the tie. Very good defender, and looked very dangerous going forward, putting in excellent crosses. I wonder was his contract situtation is at Rovers. He's only 23. Worth putting in a bid over the summer?

I agree - especially in the first leg.

I'm still very happy with what Lewis brings to the side but we're going to need to get some cover for him/ a credible challenge for his spot.

He's a decent player. Every time we play them he's heavily involved. That Raith team are decent but it I could steal a player from their side I would take Kevin Cuthbert he's a steady goal keeper.

My Dad and I both said the same yesterday that he looked a player.

I recall him playing well last season at ER if i remember correctly in a game we won 2-0.

Can fairly swing a ball in.

Nah lets just keep Conrad. He catches last minute corners.

Plus he takes a great long throw albeit most of them are foul throws. Could also have Niklas on the right flank who takes a great long shy as well

Yep we could do a lot worse than going for him imo.

Didn't go to the 1st leg, however thought he was good yesterday. Stood out as one of Raiths best.

Did we not just sign a left back from Raith Rovers? 18 year old that Hearts were after.

I'm sure this guy was ball boy at the east yesterday. Certainly looked like older guys doing the ball boy duties to get the ball in play quick if required.
Good move by Hibs

We thought it was Sean Brennan doing that on the East side too.

I was in the east yesterday he looked fairly decent, good engine going up and down the flank.

Cracking player. Should look to sign him.

I actually thought he struggled in the first half...we were getting past him regularly...came on to a game though, had a stronger second half..

Seen him play for Cowdenbeath a few years ago, might have been on his debut. Looks decent ar this level, could well step up.

Agreed. Said the same to my mate. He was the best player on the park in the first leg and good yesterday too

Agree good solid consistent player.

Was disgusted at 1st leg tho when some low life sitting 3 rows in Infront of me shouting racial abuse at him. "Hurry up ya ****ing Muslim" when taking a throw and when he was being subbed off "hurry the **** up Bin Laden".

I was with a friend who was taking his daughter to her first ever Hibs match. **** bag. Hibs don't need or want your kind following the club.

It was indeed, the whole of the 20's doing ball boy duties. Obviously in case the game was going against us to get the ball back quicker, and as it turned out, to slow the game down when we were ahead. Brennan was at the east side in front of Section 43, Sean Mackie would've been doing it as well and was also in the crowd for the first leg last week.

Yes Sean Mackie, he was the East Stand ballboy yesterday.

Released by killie not so long ago. Looks alright going forward but thought he struggled defensively.

I'd look elsewhere, personally.

Exactly my view suspect defensively.

That's great to hear that we are finally doing this. Using 9/10 year old ball boys hasnt helped us in the past. Theyre too slow at getting the ball back to Hibs players when we are attacking and often naively give the ball quickly to the opposition when we haven't had the chance to organise ourselves.

I've also thought for a while that we allow the opposition a breather and we lose a lot of time through not having enough ball boys in the south stand when we are at home to diddy teams and we are shooting in to that end. They always seem to get about a 60 second breather while some ten year old lad tries to hurdle 20 rows of seats to get the ball back. Little things like this are more important than it might seem.

If he can also play wide midfield then he would be a great addition. Lewis is more comfortable defending, so a more attack-minded player who can cover at LB would be nice.

Lewis had a better game yesterday...by some way in my view...Ok, so he has a big throw in...but other than that - don't know why the fuss..he looked poor defensively.

:agree: Things like this are important. It's called attention to detail.

Need I say more???Lewis has more assists than him this season so he cant be that great at crossing, didn't look all that great physically yesterday and his throws all came to nothing so yes, you do need to say more.

You could have Gareth Bale beating men and whipping in balls down the left hand side but until we've got strikers who make the right runs we're not going to get more goals from that side of the park.

Our goals yesterday came from a corner and a deflection but similar to Wednesday, Lewis must have been wondering at times what he needed to do to create a goal.

Not for me

Was described to me by a current Raith player as having a long throw and not much else
