    I've been impressed the few times I've seen him play. Probably reminds me of a younger and healthy Anthony Watmough. I would have suggested it would have been harder for him to get a crack at NSW because the Blues have so much depth at second row. But because of the implosion this year there might be some players on the chopping block so he might get a look in. Any Thoughts?

    Crikey, you know to belittle a bloke, most of us want Angus to become the next Bradley Clyde . . . Anthony could only dream of covering the ground in leaps and bounds

    Keep the poor bloke as far away from the NSW set up as possible. Nothing good for him there. Will only destroy his development.

    You wouldnt want any rookies in a Blues team with Pearce. Blues aren't winning and their rep careers look shit.

    The kid is incredible. Best forward at souffs by a mile. He'd look good in that Cronulla #11 when Lewis hangs up the boots.

    Jackson is not a good player. He didn't do much in the SOO despite all the commentary gaggling over him. He ran less than 140m or something for the entire series. He also missed a critical tackle in game 2.

    As a Souths fan, he is has been a shining light in a very lackluster team. What is impresses me about him is his maturity and the fact that he is able to analyse what is going on around him and act accordingly. In terms of the physical side of things, he is a great combination of strength, power and speed. His greatest strength is that he is able to step around defenders while maintaining his balance and power; when most player step they lose a bit a power and balance but Angus never seems to. I think he and Nathan Brown have to be picked next year for origin if they are performing to the same standard next season.

    Watmough whole career can't be judged by what he did at Parramatta where he was in his twilight. People have short memory's.

    The kid is good but please save blokes like him and Cleary for a few years to develop!

    He tried his guts out today but was monstered at times by the Cows who were waiting for him. Still managed to show a few touches of class though.

    We have some good backrowers. Let him go for a few years.

    Of course he is a good player after all he hails from the same place as the GOAT

    Angus Chricton is a few months older then Coen Hess, Angus has played 24 games to Coen's 25.

    They are progressing remarkedly similar. Queensland rushed to get Hess into origin, while people involved with the Blues are saying give Angus a few years.
