"His form is consistent in the small parts of the game and he's very efficient in both his defensive and attacking areas.

"Probably the best compliment we can give him is that teammate Cameron Smith pushes him to not only be in the Melbourne team, but also pushes him to be in the Queensland team and you probably can't get any bigger endorsement than that from the Australian captain and one of our games greatest ever players.
