Hudson Young's football is finally doing the talking, not his past dates with the judiciary.
"And that's where I wanted to get to," Young told NRL.com, feeling the waters of redemption washing away the 13 weeks he spent out of the game from two separate eye gouging charges.
"I'm not too worried about my past now. I'm comfortable with it. It was my mistake, and I owned them."
And now he's owning the Raiders middle with stints at lock and in the second row. In the 22-18 win over the Roosters last week Young played prop and bent the defensive line back a few times.
