    Let's not dwell on how Hawkins came to have the ball in the first place...

    The best thing you can do after mucking up something is to fix it. That is exactly what Callum did. You cannot ask for anything more.

    Took them long enough.
    Well done Millsy.
    Wild speculation, unsubstantiated rumours, silly jokes and opposition delight in another's failures is what makes an internet forum fun.
    Blessed are the cracked for they are the ones who let in the light.

    About time! Awarded not only for Fridays game, but also for, I believe, a consistent body of quality work for the entire season. A first year gun, should win the overall award!

    That whole piece of play - where he made up for a poor mistake by monstering Hawkins

    Well done Callum - a long time overdue and should finish top 3 at worst - and could yet take it out in my opinion if he has a really strong finish to the season.

    He plays like someone that has already played 100 games - he is going to be an elite player, there is little doubt about that!

    About bloody time. Nice to see a number of journalists have the same opinion.

    He is consistently good. Not flashy or One Week Only. Each and every week he works, produces quality play, and he is getting better and better.

    Just as a side note: he must be a LOT stronger than he looks!

    That tackle he put on Tom Hawkins and brought him down was a sign of how strong he is.

    Strong yes, but the technique was impeccable.

    The other tackle that impressed me was one from Smith.
    Not only did he have the arm (s) pinned, but he'd wrapped his legs around the players leg, so he couldn't even get a kick away.

    From the intensity and the amount that stuck I'd say they have been practicing them in recent times.
