Harry Wilson's dazzling start to Super Rugby has caught the attention of not only those in Australian rugby circles but also a three-time title-winning coach.
Crusaders coach Scott Robertson is the latest to join the chorus of those Wilson has impressed, telling Fox Sports that he was in love with the former Gunnedah juniors game.
"I've officially fallen for, have I mentioned, Harry Wilson," Robertson said to Fox Sports commentator Greg Martin.
"As an ex-No. 8, his ability to set a bit of footwork is special."
Robertson's comments came a week after Wilson had starred for the Reds against his Crusaders.
The number eight was impressive in the 24-20 loss, carrying the ball a staggering 24 times, for 126 metres and three linebreaks. He also scored a try, played a key role in Henry Speight's spectacular length of the field try, and made eight tackles.
Reds coach Brad Thorn also described him as a special talent, remarking that he hasn't seen many players take to professional rugby as seamlessly and dominate from the get-go.
"With Harry, I'm coaching him, so I'm trying to be careful," Thorn said.
"If I was commentating or something [it would be different] because he's special, he's special coming through. So I just want him to stay humble, keep being the guy he is, keep doing his thing.
"But far out you have a kid like that come in, straight in; what is it seven games straight, playing that sort of form.
"I've been around for a fair while, I haven't seen many guys do that."
There has been a lot of hype - deservedly - around Wilson's performance through the first seven rounds. he leads the Reds for runs (88) and run metres (486) and Fox Sports writers Sam Worthington and Christy Doran both have him in their first Wallabies squad.
Before the Super Rugby competition was suspended, he was though looking at least a month on the sidelines after suffering a medial ligament injury in the win over the Bulls.
