How good was Austin! Thrown into any position and he'll do a great job. Superb effort.

And that my friends is why you have a utility player on the bench.

He tries very hard. I wasn't a big fan of him until today. Rowe is injured as well so you'd think austin might stay at fullback now.

Top game. Did us proud.

Austin is a good footballer after tonight he could play anywhere on the field and would not let the team down thanks blake for your great effort

he was ok but he was caught out a lot,knocked on and support play was non exsistant
he still did enough to keep us in the game but when he comes up against a better team we will be smashed
austin is a good player but hes over-rated on the boards

Wow, Super impressed with Austin yet again.

Stable, versatile and adds a ton of spark.

Massive fan in the making here

Well done Blake

He went really well at the back tonight. I wanted him tried there earlier in the year (and wrote as such on here)when we lost Tedesco.

He is very versatile, which is good for us, and I think he suits us better there than in the six Anasta seemed to be helping him out a lot with the defensive talking/organisation that a fullback needs, but that will come.

Covered the position fine and gave his all. Made a few errors expected for someone with no experience at fullback, but that's expected. We were lucky we were playing the most useless halves combo in the NRL. Hopefully Simona is right to go next week as id prefer him at the back

The thing was that his positional play in defence at fullback was very good.
That isn;t something you can just 'pick up'. Knowing where to be in the last line of defence is something that normally takes a long time. Very impressive work for the first time at 1.
Very impressive indeed

Top game tonight. I thought his overall positioning was very good. Not sure if I would keep him there for the rest of the season, I will need to think about that one a bit more.
