Jack Hetherington – on loan from Penrith – has been wreaking havoc on the right edge.
It’s been high quality stuff, too. Both teams have completed more than 85 per cent of their sets.
Kodi Nikorima levelled the score at 8-all with a penalty goal. There’s still 14 to play in the first half.
Remember that thing I said about this match having the makings of an absolute carve up?
The Warriors have just marched up the field with remarkable ease and impressive hooker Karl Lawton pinned the ears back from 15 out to catch the Tigers napping, split the goal line defence and score.
Some great playmaking from Benji Marshall in the lead up was matched by Adam Doueihi, who threw a cracking cutout pass to the equal top try scorer in the NRL.
This has all the makings of a complete carve up after 14 minutes. The Tigers are on alright. It’s 8-0.
A brilliant Harry Grant kick and chase forced a Warriors error but it was a sublime offload from Luciano Leilua that put Moses Mbye in for the first try of the night.
The Tigers skipper missed a simple conversion, though, leaving the score at 4-0 after seven minutes.
