Competition - NRL Premiership
Round - Round 01
Teams – Gold Coast Titans v Newcastle Knights
Date – 6th March 2016
Venue – Cbus Stadium, Robina, Gold Coast QLD

Description –

Interchange forward Korbin Sims was awarded Players' Player in Round 1 of the 2016 season.

The 24-year-old brought impact as soon as he came onto the field, stripping Ashley Taylor of the ball ten metres out from the Titans' line.

Soon after the Knights scored from that opportunity, and Sims continued to impress throughout the rest of the match with bullocking runs and stinging tackles.

With Sims desperate to break into the Queensland Origin team this year, expect more emphatic performances from the prop.
