4 tries in 3 weeks and 5 for the season. That's more than Payten, Gibbs and Galloway combined and he averages more tackle breaks than any other Tigers forward. That's impact right there and it makes a difference out on the field. He's definitely working harder since being re-instated to first grade.

Rookie of the year. Hands down

Is he Kiwi? Definitely a chance for the Four Nations.

He is a gun. I reckon he should be in the NSW team next year.

Would he be a chance for Dally M Rookie of the Year? Will definitely get the club one .. or maybe Lui?

But who else would be his competition for the Dally M? Matt Gillett would be one. What about Hoffman/Norman. Brisbane have had a good year with the juniors too. We've had three NYC players come through and play almost every game in first grade this year.

I don't know. Hodgkinson would be up there. As would Gillett. Nathan Gardner as well?

He'll be lucky to be nominated imo, although that takes nothing away from his season. It's been outstanding. 5 hitups and a try in the space of maybe 4 minutes (2 sets of 6) is unbelievable really.

As I said last week, love watching him play. Has no fear.

Long way to go before people start talking about Origin, but if he continues like he is then no reason why he wouldn't eventually.

True I forgot about Hodkinson.

Don't know about Gardner .. I feel he started too late to have a big enough impact. My nominees would be Fifita, Hodkinson, Gillett and Norman. Justin Horo would be considered too. Lots of good young players to come through this year.

He is no chance at rookie of the year.. And yet I think he's got the most talent of any of them and will go on to play rep footy for sure. The guy can completely change a match and will be our x-factor going into the finals.

He had a big game today, walked past him before the game and he is big enough to hold a bull out to p... He is learning how to use his size, power and strenght and will be a big asset in the games ahead.

His uncle was Tongan, he's was born and grew up in NSW so expect him to be named in the Qld side next year...

Polynesian background though, Tongan if I'm not mistaken. Also, wasn't he born in Blacktown?
