Sunday Social: NRL try of the season contender, Gildart shows his pace, West Wales make history

It is time for Love Rugby League’s Sunday Social, your alternative recap of the serious and not so serious talking points from the past seven days. 

Sydney Roosters produced a contender for try of the season against Newcastle this weekend. James Tedesco’s finish helped the reigning champions ease to a 48-10 win at Sydney Cricket Ground.

Hull KR Captain Joel Tomkins was brutally honest about the dangerous position the club find themselves in following Friday night’s home defeat at Huddersfield. The Robins could end the weekend level-bottom if London manage to beat St Helens for the second time this season.

Oliver Gildart showed an impressive turn of pace to score for Wigan on Thursday night. Adrian Lam’s side bounced back from last week’s defeat to St Helens with a comprehensive victory over an out-of-sorts Wakefield side.

South Sydney  half-back Adam Reynolds made one young fans’ day following their victory over North Queensland this weekend. Sometimes, it’s the small touches in sport that make a lasting impression.

There were joyous scenes at Stebonheath Park as West Wales picked up their first ever professional win following a 44-16 triumph over Coventry. The Raiders had lost their previous 15 games in the league this season, conceding 54 points per game on average.

Finally, there were plenty of humorous exchanges taking place this week between different sides, including Warrington and Widnes. It really does seem like more clubs are using social media as a way of building rivalries and raise their profiles, which has certainly split opinion amongst fans.
