RED AND BLACK REPORT 2018: EDITION NO.17

RED AND BLACK REPORT 2018: EDITION NO.17

Each week the Red and Black Report will keep you up to date with how our Canterbury Rugby League products are performing in Australia’s elite and lower-grade competitions.

 

NRL

Aranui product Jamayne Isaako all but confirmed he will be named the 2018 Dally M Rookie of the Year, producing another stellar performance in Brisbane’s 34-0 demolition of Gold Coast.

The 22-year-old winger booted seven goals – taking his season points tally to 145, third in the NRL – and making two long breaks out of the Broncos’ half in a 146-metre display.

Meanwhile, teammate and Burnham Chevaliers junior Kodi Nikorima had a fine game in the No.7, scoring the first try, playing a key role in several others and running for 95 metres.

Hornby old boy Fa’amanu Brown made a cameo off the bench for Canterbury – his fourth top-grade appearance of 2018 – and came up with eight tackles and one run in a heart-breaking 32-28 loss to Canberra.

 

INTRUST SUPER PREMIERSHIP NSW

Halswell junior Matt McIlwrick made his ISP debut for North Sydney following his mid-season switch from Wests Tigers to South Sydney, coming off the bench in a 32-0 defeat to Blacktown Workers.

 

INTRUST SUPER CUP QLD

Jordan Riki’s rapid rise continued when he made his ISC debut off the bench in Norths Devils’ 28-24 win over Burleigh Bears on Saturday. Riki starred in the Devils’ run to the Mal Meninga Cup (Under-18s) final earlier this year before playing a handful of games in the Under-20s, but is now only one step away from the NRL.

Norths are a feeder club for the Brisbane Broncos, who have already blooded boom teenagers Payne Haas, Kotoni Staggs and David Fifita – Riki’s Mal Meninga Cup final opponent – so far this season.

Sheldon Pitama came off the bench as Redcliffe Dolphins maintained a share of the competition lead with a 28-20 win over defending champs PNG Hunters.

 

JERSEY FLEGG (NSW U20s)

Cruz Topai-Aveai returned to Jersey Flegg action for Cronulla, starting in the front-row in a 24-18 loss to Newcastle.

Daniel Sakisi moved into the starting second-row in a late change for Canterbury, but it was a forgettable afternoon for the Bulldogs Under-20s as they went down 32-10 to Mounties.

 

HASTINGS DEERING COLTS (QLD U20s)

Jalen Tangiiti-Turner featured on the wing as Wynnum Manly Seagulls went down 38-12 to Tweed Heads Seagulls.
