Far more impressive than anything McKinnon has shown, should not be moved from fullback.

He really made a statement and surely must have strong claims to stay at number 1 ahead of McKinnon. good on him. i've never been a fan before but he won me over today. I'd almost forgotten what it is like to see a fullback return the ball and break the line.
Was very strong under the high ball today (a few kicks put him under pressure.) He was never afraid to steam back on the return and made a few promising runs. Was unlucky not to score a try.

The guy has plenty of potential, he just hasn't been given enough minutes to prove himself.

The only complaint I have on McKinnon is his inability to stay fit. He has been very safe at the back as well and once he gets his match fitness back, I think you can expect to see him get more involved in attack.
And the sky is filled with light, can you see it?
And the black is really white, if you believe it.
And the longing that you feel, you know none of this is real;
You will find a better place, in this twilight...

I was suprised at how confidently they took on the high ball all game, turning point perhaps?

Was my man of the match today.

Not taking anything away from Ellis etc but everything we did started with his strong runs. Even Farahs 40/20 started with a dominant run & quick PTB from Brown

I agree. His dominant runs from the back made life much easier for our forwards. He`s going from strength to strength and has surely done enough to earn himself a spot in our starting 13 ???

I was cheering for Mitch yesterday. He did very well. Mitch and Daniella have both shown lots of promise and taken the opportunities they've been given. Good on them.

I don't intend to use this opportunity to have another go at the re-signing and use of Fitzhenry, but I also think Mitch offers much more - and deserves it more.

Daniella and Brown should be our permanent right side combo.

Yep, it's been hard to understand his lack of game time. For mine while not setting the world completely on fire has barely put a foot wrong while others have been getting the nod ahead of him. He is a safew option and deserves to keep his spot on his form this year.

Totally agree. Surely he can't be dropped next week even if McKinnon is fit (which is highly unlikely anyway). Keep him at FB, he added a lot to our game yesterday.
