Has Christian Welch gone past Jesse Bromwich as Melbourne Storm's best prop?
Welch destroyed the Sydney Roosters' pack last round, racking up 190 running metres, 87 post-contact metres and 31 tackles.
His average running metres this season has been 111 and he virtually doubled his output of 45m per game.
Now it must be said the Roosters were severely understrength, with enforcer Jared Waerea-Hargreaves and captain Boyd Cordner among a host of unavailabilities.
But it can't take away from the best display of Welch's 89-game career.
He ripped into the Roosters like a man possessed, tearing through the forwards and crunching in defence.
The 195cm, 110kg Welch also had three off-loads, which is so vital as teams need them to break down water-tight defences.
For so long, Bromwich had been vying for the title of the world's best prop, along with Queenslander Matt Scott and the aggressive Waerea-Hargreaves.
It's far too early to say Welch is in that category.
He doesn't have the footwork of Bromwich or the menace of Waerea-Hargreaves, but he's a Storm prototype - he does his job.
A decade ago, journeyman Bryan Norrie had played 60 games at three clubs and had signed as captain-coach of Wagga Kangaroos before Storm coach Craig Bellamy gave him a call.
A few years later he was a premiership player.
Given he's already a Queensland representative, Welch is a more credentialled player than Norrie, but the similarities are there.
Both no-nonsense forwards who are getting the absolute best out of themselves.
Mind you, it is the Storm.
