    The guy is getting better every year. Hope he re-signs for life

    Notice the timing. I love this bloke.

    His attack is superb also.

    That hit on the no 14 for the cowboys was sweet. He has had to stop doing so many shoulder charges these days due to our game cracking down on contact with the head.

    i think the bigger reason is he gets penalised offside incorrectly too often, fact is he is usually not involved at all in the play before and is ready to take off well before the ball is played

    The tackle on brett white running cross field is probably the most awesome in the brute strength plus timing.

    Thats one of the better hits videos ive seen. You dont get that good in defense without making a few errors to learn from along the way. Look at him now. One of the top centres in the game.

    The thing is, he's not a big bloke and if you look at highlights reels for other hitmen they're predominantly on outside backs. The majority of those hits are on forwards, and those that aren't are certainly not on small blokes (backs include Grothe, Folau, Tuquiri, etc). He's not afraid to smash a prop that has 20kg on him.

    Loved every second of that vid.... Didn't remember some of those hits so was great to see them again. Has been one of my favourite players for a few years now.

    Has been my favourite player ever since he started playing with us, I will be devastated the day he decides to leave or hang up the boots. I hope we are able to sign him for another 3 or 4 years.

    Reminds of the great line from Zelig; 'It just shows what you can achieve if you're a total psychotic!'
