A great pickup by the club.

He, Eisenhuth and Marsters have really brought some hope with them.

And to think that Marsters was a reserve for our last placed ISP side a few times this year.... :crazy

He seems to have found plenty to play for. Best game I've seen from a #14 for some time. Watching live, that jersey was always in or near the action.

Others in the pack seemed to have also lifted - Sue in particular 94m in 30 minutes, Grant also seemed to have a newfound step.

It is amazing when contracts are on the line.

How good has Twal been for the Tigers. I think he has been one of our best forwards this year.

He was good last year but I think since the World Cup he has gone to another level.

I still claim him as the plodder leader but I am fearful I cant claim him as a good quality plodder going forward... :(

When he develops an offload or is allowed by IC to start popping balls his game will go to another level. Already has big metres in him strong D possibly could bend the line a bit more but you need to have those types of workers in your team. Definitely not a plodder he has something about him and still very raw for a prop.

The most underrated forward in the NRL.

Any other bench prop that averaged 100m+ 25+tackles and tackled with 99% efficiency would be in rep calculations.

When he was in the Under20 program with Parra, he was told to lose the off loads and concentrate on make yards .. apparently he had too many loss the ball whilst being tackled issues. Bugger me if I have a strong forward who inclined to offload too much in the tackle and lose it .. I'd be concentrate on getting to keep it up, but choose wisely when you offload the ball.

Just love his hit and stick rate in defence .. keep it up Alex you're doing just fine big fella .. !!
