Players' Player: Round 6

Dane Gagai came into his own as a fullback in Round 6, using the hard work of his forwards as a springboard to exploit the Tigers' tiring defence.

He was the first Knight to make over 200 metres in a game in 2016, broke out of five tackles and only missed one.

He will be looking towards the away game against the Broncos next weekend as a big test to improve his already good form.
