Serious question……Is Heighno the weakest forward in the NRL?
Heighno runs at backs and gets pushed back all the time.
Benji puts him into some incredible gaps and he rarely makes his way through even soft cover D.
Today, he was over for the winning try…yet a 5 foot full back spun him around and held him up (on his own).
Ben Creagh is not exactly a tough nut, but Creagh busts holes like Heighno can only dream of.
I’ve met Heighno a few times and he’s not a small man. He’s built like Gallen and Bird.
So, why does he get pushed and dominated physically by just about every player in the NRL? Is it technique? Lack of leg stength? What?
I thought he played well today. He runs lines well he is incredibly willing. But he just dead set cannot bend anyone back.
