    Outstanding tonight, just imagine he had size on him, he would be even better, hopefully he can bulk up a bit

    I'll be honest, I wasn't a fan but he's growing on me. Some good kicking as well tonight. Well done to him.

    His confidence is perfect to hit the offseason and add a few more kg of muscle.

    Becoming a very good winger with a bit of muscle in the off season will be a weapon next year ,could be leading point scorer

    Confidence was his biggest issue, interested to see him get another run at fullback.

    Needs to work on his strength in the off season and he will be a gun with his speed and swerve. Addo-Carr was ordinary until he worked on his strength.

    With some muscle, he should become a better version of Corey Thompson.

    Definitely seems a lot less timid lately. Good player, bright future. I like him a lot.

    I’ll give Pay credit for selecting him on the wing tonight even though he got hammered on here Tuesday

    I still think he’s a better fullback but getting a lot better on the wing

    Even with the smallish frame he's got now his post contact efforts have improved heaps in the past few games.

    To his credit he has improved since moving to the wing.. the most pleasing thing is he's learning how to take those half chances and not hesitating with a pause in his run to the corner..

    He is getting better and more confident and this has been showing everytime he scores, he just looks more happy and confident and doesn't look like the scared kid from earlier on.

    Problem with bulking up is it makes you slower. Bulk may not be important on the wing. I want him to stay fast.

    Exactly. We don't need muscle we need speed more than anything.

    He hasn't regressed, he's only improved. He used to get smashed nearly every tackle. Like others have said, I reckon he needs strengthening. I believe he's earn't his spot.
