    Mario played 2 SOO but never played for AUST. in a fully-fledged test!!

    He was over the line to play for Aust. after starring in his SOO games but broke his thumb[bad break] & was gazumped by Elias!! Benny never looked back. Sadly Mario never got another chance!

    Cook is an elite RL player now & may get an Aussie jumper--Meninga[QLD]is the coach so possibly this could advantage McCullough!
    I'm glad Damien visited this site to read my "reverse psychology"---it seems to have worked for him!!
    He has me to thank for his meteoric rise to stardom!!

    Without intending to be negative, half a season of form doesn't justify the 'elite' tag imo. Should this form continue to next season then sure but for now he can only build towards it.

    Elite,in hindsight,was an exaggeration!!

    It's difficult to comprehend his dramatic improvement though;I must have got carried away!!!

    I love that phrase--"without intending to be negative."

    Should be used more often on this Forum where positivity is not always evident!!

    Not overly an exaggeration. The level of his performances in 2018 have been elite but the same can be said of Blake Austin in 2016 or our very own George in 2014.
    Should Cook carry this form (which hopefully he does) into 2019 then you'd be bang on the money.

    I'm just trying to avoid the hater accusations lol
