Top 5: Try assists

With the 2017 season done, take a look back at the Club’s top performers in each of the game’s key statistics.

Up today is try assists.

Brock Lamb – 10

In his first full season of NRL football, Lamb tops the list.

He averaged a try assist every second game, and crossed over for five of his own as well.

His willingness to play the ball close to the defensive line saw runners find holes, with Lachlan Fitzgibbon the most notable example.

Dane Gagai – 9

Playing both at fullback and centre, Gagai had his equal best year ever for try assists.

Several came from the boot as well, as he found a gap out wide to stab the ball through for his winger.

Trent Hodkinson – 6

While Hodkinson played a reduced amount of games this season, he still comes in at third.

The halfback found his straps later in the season, and recorded four in Rounds 18 and 19.

More often than not though, Hodkinson was the player who decided the direction of the team and played it on for Lamb to work his magic.

Danny Levi – 4

Levi did quite well in the try assist stakes for a dummy-half, who usually plays the ball on to a half before a try is scored.

Levi’s direct style of play saw him get an assist on four occasions though, with two coming in the last two rounds of the season.

Jaelen Feeney – 4

From eight matches Feeney averaged an assist every second game to match Lamb.

Two of his assists came in a strong performance against the Penrith Panthers in Round 11.
