Ive bagged the guy so much over the last 12 months. And for 3 weeks ive given him the raps he deserves. But deep down i still felt he had sooooo much gound to make up before i truly accepted he was back. Well, i think he's back. What a game he had. He let Jennings score, but besides that, he was so far ahead of every other Tigers player it wasnt funny.

Cant believe his defence, his hit ups, his off loads and tonight he even showed his old footwork. Great game.

Great to see u back Heighno.

Yeah he seems to have developed into a true lock forward. He has the ball skills, he can be the link man and his runs just keep improving

We would have been lost without him! Great game Heighno. He can show us the way forward in coming weeks.

Was a tough 2009 for him, but he has been a star this year for sure

To be honest he played one of the best games I've seen a back-rower play in quite some time today. It was as though we had 3 of him at times... Great game in an ordinary loss... I am hardly a Sheens basher but the loss today for me is all his fault... Poor team selections, mixed with a terrible game plan ...
I hate South Sydney.... immensely

It would have been a scary night if he wasn't playing.

congrats to Hino for a lead by example game.
would be nice if his performance is repeated next week, and give the rep team selectors someone to think about.

What a great effort played strong impressed must hurt when you have a half hearted coach.

Best Tiger on the field tonight, what he did was rep quality IMO. He's certainly been one of the Tigers best this season and has thrived under the strength and fitness regime of Folkes. Outplaying Ellis this year so far.

I still fail to see the point of the short drop out. God knows what they hoped to achieve from it... But yes Chris was very good tonight and that he was in a position to get the final pass from a break made by our hooker and then our winger was one thing but to put a move on their fullback/winger to score was super.

holy s*** what a game from him. I swear sheens has him running back into the ruck most the time, but with skills like that he better stop doing it.

Was he like playing as a second rower or something? every 10 seconds rhino was there and involved. fantastic game

Got through a mountain of work on the weekend and you could really tell him and Lote were giving more effort then anyone else on the feild. looks as though he may be getting back to his best form. Would love to see him continue on and play origin although quite unlikely.
