The Daddy

Mason Caton-Brown, the next Greg Inglis!

45 posts in this topic

Michael Jennings is far removed from the class of Inglis, he is a fringe Test player at best.

I would not have Jennings in the Kangaroo team and the Coach felt the same way in last years World Cup when he used Hayne at Centre to great effect after dropping the patchy Jennings early in the lead up games.

I am not saying Caton-Brown is too small, I am saying Inglis has freakish skills and is fast and very large, that combination does not come round too often.

I'm not debating whether he will be as good as Inglis, Caton Brown will never be a better centre than him.

I'm arguing that he can be world class regardless of his size. He can be world class but not as good as Inglis. Jennings, Morris x 2, Dean Whare are all similar builds and have performed at international level. I don't this Caton Brown's size will stop him becoming an international level centre.

Whether he becomes the next GI or not it shows that London should have much more investment at junior level as there is massive potential to unearth top quality players

MC-B is still young, and could fillout and bulk up a bit without losing much (if any) pace. It would give him a bit more power in attack and defence, as long as he doesn't overdo it.

You mean like Ryan Hall has?

Delusional title. Inglis is the best player ever, while Mason has done well so far, but needs to improve his all round game before even being considered for England duty.

I was thinking more of Inglis, who bulked up maybe too much a couple of years ago, before finding his most effective weight.

Maybe more like George Rose would be fun

Great? Yeah. Best? Hmmm, bit premature for all that.

This is pretty laughable, not as laughable as when Greg Eden was compared to Billy Slater, or when Mike Worrincey was compared to Ellery Hanley but still pretty laughable.

 

Anyone with explosive pace can look very good on an RL pitch going forward.  Let's give him a few more games before declaring him even fit for England.  Got to say Id much rather have him in my side than Dan Sarginson, who for me is one of the most over-rated players to come out of London yet.

Broncos fans didn't seem to rate him all that much so I'm not sure how he became "over-rated". "Wigan seemed to see something in him that others hadn't and mostly still haven't" is a better summary.

Must admit that Sarginson was pulling up trees when he first broke into a poor London side - you would have expected him to carve it up at Wigan. This just hasn't happened and he has just looked solid but unspectacular.

Sarginson is being played out of position. His best position is not centre. However, there's far too much competition at Wigan for him to be picked in the halves.

Good point. I remember him being given a go in the halves when he first broke into the Broncos side and he scored a few good individual tries.

Blake Green's leaving at the end of the season, so Wane may have plans for Sarginson there.

Watkins made caton-brown look ordinary tonight

 

Don't think it was just down to one individual player but Caton-Brown was way way off any likeness to a future Inglis.  The Aussies interpretation of the word ordinary certainly seems apt.

Gelling is a decent player but not in the same class of an Inglis, yet Gelling made Caton-Brown look like a schoolboy all night.

MCB is a defensive liability and a long way off even being considered for international call up !
