IS A DEBUT CALLING?
Supposedly Miller is close to debuting from the bench
The Sharks caught a good one in Locky Miller.
The former Rugby 7s star has been absolutely carving up in NSW Cup and foxsports.com.au
understands he is very
close to getting an NRL debut off the bench.
In Round 1 he topped the metre-count for the Jets and scored, in Round 2 he topped the metre-count again for his team and set up a try. In Round 3 he set up three tries.
Last weekend he ran for 136 metres, had a linebreak, a linebreak assist, a try assist and nine tackle busts. He also made a stunning try-saving tackle on Edrick Lee
“He’s an absolute freak,” Newtown captain Kurt Dillon told Fox League after their 18-16 win.
“We didn’t know what to expect because obviously he’s come from Rugby 7s — we didn’t know what he’d bring to the team — but as you can see today and every week he just lights the field on fire and makes it easier for us.”
Newtown winger Kayal Iro
proved hard to handle for the Knights, running for 199 metres with 104 of those post-contact, while Tom Hazelton
is a hardworking prop that Sharks fans should keep an eye on.
Cronulla’s big bopper Franklin Pele
was sin-binned for a high shot in Newtown’s win over Newcastle and then penalised for another high shot just 36 seconds after returning to the field. He made up for it though when he crashed over for what ended up being the matchwinner.
