He is now really playing some top class football

Every run is high quality, he is now starting to be given the ball a little earlier before the line which is making hime more dangerous. He makes great meters after contact and in defence they avoid him but when he hits he hits prob better then anyone in our pack

Great game tonight and has been playing great since he came back from injury

Well done

His game has improved a lot, suited to the back row but I wish he had a faster clone as a centre.

Great Footy Smarts too... He knew we needed to grind it out in the middle and kept taking us back there.

A full off season could bare some interesting fruit for the Tigers and Curtis?!

He's doing a lot of the dirty work, and doing it well. Just hope he stays fit and healthy all of next season.

Yep games without injury in a row is all it takes. He and Noffa are starting to shine.

I was on this bloke's back thinking he was taking far too long to progress. Hats off though he was very good tonight and has been for weeks.

Teddy was clearly MOM, but I think Siro was 2nd best.

The kid has played really well since coming back from injury, he seems to be moving well and making good contact in defence without shoulder problems.

What I noticed is how much he stood up in that first half when the Raiders threatened to overwhelm us with their size. He made some great reads and stops on our line and took some really tough hit-ups when we were on the back foot.

On the front foot he ran into space well and troubled the Raiders defence, even after contact and even with all their size.

Coming along really nicely... suddenly a backrow of Rowdy and Siro is looking sharp!
