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.
Aranui product Jamayne Isaako continued his late-season form resurgence with a key role in Brisbane’s vital win over North Queensland on Thursday.
The winger made a long break to brilliantly set up the opening try for Anthony Milford, as well as kicking three goals and racking up 154 metres in the nail-biting 18-14 win.

The utility racked up 41 tackles and forced his way over for the match-sealing try from dummy-half.
