In the NRL, it took just four minutes for North Queensland Cowboys outside back Kyle Feldt to score what might be an early try of the season contender against Brisbane. 

On Friday, Melbourne’s Josh Addo-Carr became the first player since 1950 to score six tries in an Australian first-grade match! The 25-year-old, bound for Canterbury Bulldogs next season, was in majestic form! You can watch all SIX tries here

Sheffield winger Rob Worrincy bagged his 200th career try against Batley, but it wasn’t enough to stop the in-form Bulldogs recording their fourth win of the season at the Keepmoat Stadium. 

Darnell McIntosh came up with this flying finish for Huddersfield, but it was another winger, St Helens’ Regan Grace, who grabbed the headlines in Friday’s Challenge Cup quarter-final clash

And finally, how do you back up a try? Scoring another one straight from kick-off, of course! Just ask the Gold Coast Titans…
