Theres some standout individual improvers in early 2013. Hate to admit it but the biggest improver imo is Hargreaves, who has had a deserved past history known as a thuggish player, so easily drawn into penalties by the opposition & went missing at times. Now finally living up to his early promise by trampling defenders, smart offloads, bruising tackles & is motivational to his teammates. Also have to mention Lawrence who was always rated as an athletic foward at the Titans but has offered far more than that with Manly including line breaks, offloads, big hits & has lifted his intensity like most do at the Seaeagles. Also Taufua, who last season combined magic attacking moments with poor errors. Obviously his 1st season last year so mistakes are sure to plague most new wingers in the NRL however, his improvement in 2013 has been drastic imo with safer hands, leaping for the high ball & perhaps even more deadly in attack. Obviously many more, so who & why??
