    Teddy is definitely the best fullback in the game. Plenty more success to come for this champion.

    Sure he is the best fullback, now - but is he the best fullback ever?

    If he keeps this current form up he will most probably finish his career as one of if not the greatest fullback ever. No disrespect to Billy

    One of the best fullbacks ever. Incredible try scorer. But really highlights some of the other great try scorers at present he has 93 tries in 160 games. Basically to catch Steve renouf’s strike rate he has to score 50 in the next 30. But he’s certainly become the best blues fullback since Tim brasher. Another former tiger

    Best player I’ve ever seen. Out and out champion who has been the dominant influence on State of Origin in the last 5 years.
