    Not suprising,he had a blinder last night in a losing team,tried his guts out and silenced critics who have stated he goes missing in big games,best on the field for the blues IMO.

    He went missing in the 2007 grand final, i honestly can't think of another instance. The critics are wrong.

    Earlier this year when he destroyed them in the WCC I thought that was the best he could play.

    I was wrong.

    In league's toughest arena he was the best forward on the ground, and the most feared player on the ground.

    He really is tailor-made for Origin.

    Tough, quick, aggressive, passionate. Love the Choc.

    I was at the ground and was stunned by the level of Choc's involvement in the game. There was a lot of work he did off the ball, unseen by the camera. Several times in attack he ran into gaps and had Barrett or Wallace passed him the ball he would have been through. I thought he was heaps more effective than Creagh.

    Good assessment CW, he really lifted a notch last night. If only now he can continue that form for the rest of the season.

    The thing that shocked me was his ball playing at the line, something we haven't seen him do for us

    the thing that shocked me was his not missign tackles on the line and not dropping the ball.

    he could have drop kicked someone in the head in that game and not been penalised.

    the refs didnt wear the whistle out thats for sure

    A core reason why he's tailor made for Origin. His nature's a street fighter.
