AJ Brimson is a defensive nightmare for opposition teams

The former carpenter is building one of the best attacking games in the NRL.

That’s not us making an outlandish statement about our fullback, that’s what the stats are showing since his return from injury.

NRL statistician David Middleton says Brimson is averaging more line breaks than any other player to have played a minimum of two games.

In just eight games in 2020, Brimson has 11 line breaks, five tries and 24 tackle breaks.

It’s the sort of form that has put him in the mix for a potential Origin debut.

The 22-year-old says despite the talk around his own form, he is concentrating on delivering for the team as the Titans look to finish the season with five-straight wins.

“If we finish ninth, not just for position on the ladder, but for confidence for next year knowing we just missed out on the top eight and we’ve got good signings coming,” Brimson told SEN’s Sportsday.

“I just feel like we owe it to ourselves to finish up there now.

“That’s definitely out goal, we’re not thinking about off-season now, we want to win this weekend.”

Quizzed about a potential Maroons appearance, Brimson says he has spoken to the Queensland Coach during the season.

“Kevvy (Walters) keeps in touch.

“He did mention a few weeks ago to have a big focus on finishing the year well and hopefully if I can do so I should be thereabouts in the squad at the end of the year.”
