    He has such a cool head, doesn't rush his work and makes good decisions.

    Yep love his game down back. Plus how nice is it when you see him with the ball in hand, you know that his disposal is going to a teammate and not a turnover.

    When Hombsch comes back, it'd be so, so cruel to drop Houston. Gotta say: the man in the gun may be Pittard.

    Haven't wanted to say it the last few weeks but I will.

    Reminds me of a young good bloke version of Luke Hodge.

    Whoever decided he should play down back can go into the Australian Football Hall of Fame with Dan when he decides to hang up his exquisite boots.

    His kicking and decision making is obviously top notch but what I love most is what a clean player he is. Never ever fumbles, which is so important for a defender.

    I like how he doesn't handball off his responsibility, he loves kicking and taking the rebound 50s on himself

    For a young'n, huh! You just back his disposal. And he reads the play so....fu...well.
    I look at him so far and think about how consistent DBJ was when he came into the 24.
    Ken was a half back flanker so i guess....
    But all kudos to the man. Keeps on delivering.
    Just wished that someone snotted Shaw last week. Where was White when you need him?

    He is this years unofficial rising star winner. SPP will probably win it and Houston won't get a vote, but Houston plays like a veteran.

    has a heap of great attributes but his ability to pick the ball up cleanly, one grab is impressive.

    Could've sworn him and DBJ were locks to be delisted.

    Great news stories the both of them.

    You might be getting Houston mixed up with Hewett.

    I would suggest that when Hombsch eventually returns to the side, Dan's position in the team is as safe as houses. No way will he be playing for the 2's. What a super cool 5 game veteran he is.
