    Finally, we just might have a first grade winger on our hands.

    the kid needs 12 kilos of muscle

    Fast and runs hard

    Could anticipation and positioning in defence.

    Phenomenal defensive positioning on the last play.

    Really? If he stays on his man, Souths don’t score.

    I'd be happy with a SAAB & RAV4 wing combo in 2020 and piss McJetski off!

    How long ago was everyone saying the same thing about Aitken?

    Aitken didn't mark up on his player...Has been happening for 5 years...While aitken is there , it doesn't matter who is on right wing...same thing happened to Lomax on the left Side...Both our Centres rush up and create the overlap by not staying on their man.

    Has to be how they are coached...happens far to often.

    Obviously brought up by a mad Souths family (who'd be pretty happy right now) but if i'm not mistaken he pointed to the club emblem after his first try. Shut his mum down when she said he wanted to play for Souths.

    If this is the case, sign him long term NOW. Passion. Love it. The Red V.

    Last time I vividly remember that was Young in the 2010 grand final.

    Any chance we can develop him into a fullback?

    We desperately need a fullback for 2020

    True but tough call. He had a blinder. Iit was split second decision he had to make there and it looked like Aitken was going to get beaten there.

    Actually it was Lafai that slipped and forced Lomax to come in off his wing.

    Great debut
    If only some others played with the same effort for the whole 80
    Showed from the first hitup he was not out of place

    Saab actually put pressure on kick receiver which has rarely occurred from our wingers this year. Great effort including 2 tries for a debut.
