The lad is huge for us.. modern day cassidy . Does the work that doesn't get noticed but is when it's not being done.
Lots adulation on here but he is another one of Wigans too small forwards as evidenced by the fact I don't think he has scored a tryvthis season?

No tries this year so must not be big enough? Most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard.

29 tackles & 96m from 10 carries giving an average gain of 9.6m last night suggests otherwise.

I honestly cannot believe you’re saying the above and can only assume you haven’t consistently watched us this season as it’s rather unanimous how much he has improved and how good he has been.

His tackling is immense, he’s cut the errors and penalties and he’s starting to make more carries & meters.

Absolutely room for improvement in attack but we shouldn’t forget he’s playing 13 and running into a set defence all game rather than getting more space to hit a gap outwide like second rowers sometimes do.

6' 1" and over 100kg doesn't seem too shabby, at his age, to me!

Think he’s as big if not bigger now 😊
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage. #18thMan

You think he's too small?
At six one and over 100 kg, yep I'd have to agree!🤣👍
He's a big player for us, ask them that watch every week?
