Crich­ton a quick learner

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SPORT -

SOUTHS coach Michael Maguire has hailed the rise of An­gus Crich­ton.

The sec­ond-rower bagged his first hat-trick, and his sev­enth try in seven games, to help the Rabbitohs de­feat the Ti­tans 36-20 at ANZ Sta­dium on Fri­day night.

Maguire wasn’t sur­prised by Crich­ton’s de­vel­op­ment de- spite the young­ster hav­ing time off with pre­vi­ous in­juries.

“I’ve al­ways seen signs that he’s go­ing to de­velop into a great player,” Maguire said.

Team­mate John Sut­ton echoed the sen­ti­ment: “When he first came in, he was just raw. Had the strength but just didn’t know how to use it. But he’s def­i­nitely de­vel­op­ing rapidly.”
