George Williams was praised by his coach and fans after his NRL debut today.

After helping Canberra to a 24-6 win against Gold Coast Titans, boss Ricky Stuart said: "I'm really excited by having George. He's a threat, has a good kicking game and is a good defender."

Judging by the reaction on Twitter, Raiders fans were also impressed with the halfback who left Wigan at the end of last season.

@skill_hello: "George Williams seems pretty good at footy."
