Patrick Templeman (Bulldogs) — North Sydney Bears vs Bulldogs
A first half arm wrestle saw an unexpected try assist to Bulldogs front rower Chris Binge. A poor last play option resulted in the big bopper being left with the ball so what does he do? He instinctively kicks the ball not once, twice, but three times to his fullback Patrick Templeman who chases in support and scores the try.
Mitchell Moses (Wests Tigers) — Wests Tigers vs Newcastle Knights
It’s little wonder why Melbourne signed Fijian flyer Marika Koroibete mid-year. Struggling to break his way into the Tigers first grade side, Koroibete was a smash hit at the level below. Nearing the end of the first half, the Knights kick send a clearing kick towards Koroibete’s wing when he charges on to the ball, splitting the defensive line through the middle. After linking with a support player, the winger then finds young gun Mitchell Moses on the outside, who finishes off a wonderful 75 metre try.
Kevin Kingston (Panthers) — Warriors vs Penrith Panthers
The Panthers were staring down an away defeat to the Warriors in round 16, which would have seen the end to their eight match winning streak until a last-ditch effort saved the day. Shifting the pill to the left wing, with the Warriors defence outnumbered, Eto Nabuli raced away before lobbing the ball back inside to Wes Naiqama. Naiqama then draws in two defenders before passing on to another veteran in Kevin Kingston who finishes it off for the Mountain men, sealing victory.
Waqa Blake (Panthers) — Penrith Panthers vs Illawarra Cutters
The Panthers have always schooled the best in young talent and in round 14, we were shown a glimpse of a true NRL superstar in the making. Mid-year signing Ben Murdoch-Masilla split the Cutters defence before offloading to Blake on his outside. The young gun still had plenty to do to make it to the white line, but with his freakish talents, he made it look easy. Fox Sports commentator Jimmy Smith said he sees similarities in Blake with that of Rabbitohs superstar Greg Inglis.
