Payne Haas, thank you! After a quiet couple of weeks he was back to his best, banging out 90 without an attacking stat!
Carrigan’s little holiday didn’t seem to slow him down as he tackled his way to 75.
In a side that has lacked any attacking flair most of the year, Ken Maumalo went over for two tries to notch his first 100+ score of the year whilst Tohu Harris makes things interesting in the 2RF stakes averaging over 70 and is another POD option.
Didn’t this game have some feeling! I was expecting a high-scoring, free flowing game, and it looked that way four minutes in.
But unfortunately for me and a lot of others, the
wrong half did all the playmaking with Jarome Luai racking up 81 on a very
dominant left edge for Penrith whilst Cleary became a spectator. Not great as a
captain option either!!
I’m not sure whether we could call what Joey Leilua
did a brain fade because that would imply he would have a brain to begin with.
Joey’s little spell might actually be good news for
Nofoaluma owners as he will likely see a lot more ball!
He finished the night with 40 but had to do it all
himself as Joey dummied and shimmied his way back infield away from Nofo.
Api Koroisau won the battle of the hookers, edging out Grant by 14 points and might still be in final 17s come season’s end.
