Between the Posts is your weekly update of what’s happening in the lives of our past, present and future Brydens Lawyers NSW Blues players.
Wighton a sight for sore eyes
Canberra Raiders five-eighth Jack Wighton had a standout game in Round 5 against the Wests Tigers where he scored a try, made seven tackle-breaks, ran 83 metres, made 21 tackles and 399 kick metres.
But the Brydens Laywers NSW Blue bared the brunt of a charging Joseph Leilua, copping a huge eye injury after tackling the Tigers centre only 28 minutes into the match and played on without complaint.
Wighton wore the injury proudly in a post-match interview and even gave his partner Monisha stick for worrying about a pimple on her face when he was wearing a big bruise on his eye. All in good fun.
What a soldier!
