His defense is remarkable. I used to think he was a hog but I think it's just because he is so strong he gets his arms free every time but is selective with when he pushes the offload. So not a hog, just a smart player.

He had a cracker tonight. His defense really stood out in the back part of last season and he's continued to improve even more. How awesome is our centre pairing? I wouldn't swap them for any other in the NRL.

Ayshford is a such a strong player, had a great game tonight.
I think he's as important to the team as Lawrence is so lets make him a tiger for life.
I do think he fits the other thread as one of the most under rated players also

always liked the way he runs, I can see him finishing up at lock in his career though its good that he can move there when Moltzen comes on

I still like Blake as a centre even though he went well in the back-row. He is so gangly teams struggle to put him down every time.

another solid week.
Great to see him have a good stint in the forwards too. His lunge at the line for the try (ala Roosters semi) highlights his superior strength and agility; got my 3 points and it's no wonder he's been at least mentioned for City

Very good game last night, I'll have to watch the game again and may bump up his rating.

I've been saying that since his debut when people bag him for not positioning his winger!

He was an outstanding off-loader with beautiful hands at school & in NYC - and just became more selective in the top grade (not wanting to run his winger over the sideline - unlike Daniela who did exactly that to Latu twice last week in NSW Cup!!)

His offloads last night were sensational & could have created several tries (especially if Utai didn't drop the reverse pass in the 2nd half) - but it also seems he has more confidence in Utai that he did in Beau!!
