Yeah, he's going great guns.

He's getting back to his 2008 form where every run would break through a tackle, gain 10m and take 3-4 players to stop not forgetting his valuable defensive throughout the season so far.

He definitely deserved the criticism thrown his way last year, but wow, he has stepped up and is playing a whole different game this year.

His little involvement in attack has created a few tries too, one for lawrence last night, and he threw a sneaky inside pass to moltzen against the roosters too - that was exactly like the one cronk threw to slater (but heighno didnt get the wraps cooper did) that led to a try.

Great game from everyone last nght.

Our backs were against the wall and we come out firing from the word go, and showed the ability and mental toughness to win ugly and grind it out. Im so impressed with the team so far.

I also noticed if he doesn't do his two feet shuffle he is also able to play through the line a lot better. But those who claim he deserved his criticism last year, take into account he pretty much played with injury the entire season.

Credit where credit is due. Ive complimented Heighno the last two weeks and im happy to give him credit again for the 3rd week in a row. Its great to see him finding his form after such a bad run. Couldnt be happier to be rapping him rather than bagging him.

He's thriving in a pack with Ellis, and developing into a more skillful and elusive runner of the ball as well. He has long been noted for his power and speed fo a forward, and his sting in defence,but he is starting to show class and the sense to step inside defenders on an inch, and at the last second, maximising his running game.

He is playing great the last couple of weeks. More of this from him and Tigers winning and SOO may come his way.

To be honest, I was hoping Heighno would be dropped last year. And even starting this year. In his last few games he has picked up 150%. He is running harder (and over people again, esp Thurston!) and tackling the same. Go Heighno, you are proving this doubter wrong

Offloads for tries.

He is crap........ :lol: :lol:
Ridiculous comment, who on here has been bagging his game recently?

Last year he was way down on form and completely ineffective in attack....this year he has been having a real go - good on him.

Have to agree with Stryker on this one. Gibbs is an example of this too, The fact they are playing well this year doesnt mean criticism of them in the past was unwarranted.

in 2004 when Rhino was playing in premier league he was mostly used in the number 13 jersey (try to forget those times as Chris Patterson and Nick Bradley Qualalwa were running with the first grade side :roll: ) and he played more as a ball player.

Always rated him in the second row but i think playing lock is his best position in defence and attack.
