nib Inspiring Moment: Pearce, Ponga, Moga and Mata'utia



Watch: Ponga steps three for sizzling try

Bang! Bang! Bang! 

As simple as that, Kalyn Ponga has stepped three Wests Tigers defenders are scored a cracking solo try.

His footwork was in show in Round 19 and his first half try was one for the highlight reel. 


This could be the pass of the season.

Flying high following a State of Origin series victory with NSW, Mitchell Pearce returned to clubland with a spring in his step.

While the Knights lost the Round 17 match against the Bulldogs, Pearce pulled off a pass which left the commentary box in raptures.

It could well be the pass of the season.

It was the fifth minute when Pearce flung a superb 30 metres pass up and over the Bulldogs defensive line.

Watch: This could be the pass of the season

It landed perfectly for Shaun Kenny-Dowall to score in the corner.

“He just makes it look so easy Mitchell Pearce,” his former Roosters teammate Braith Anasta said in FOX League commentary.

“He looks up and sees his spot and Shaun Kenny-Dowall was open with no one around and like poetry in motion he just nails the pass.”


The Knights were without a host of stars when they hosted the Warriors on a wet and miserable Saturday night but despite missing so much big game experience, a depleted Knights took it to a near-full strength Kiwi side.

One of those players who really stepped up was Sione Mata’utia.

The centre turned backrower turned centre was brilliant.

He scored two tries in the narrow 24-20 loss, including a 69th minute screamer.

While it wasn’t the match winner, it was a special try for the local product.


It was his return game to the starting side.

So, it was only fitting it was against the team who he started his NRL career with.

While he made his NRL return from the bench the previous week against the Bulldogs, Tautau Moga started the Round 18 clash with the Sydney Roosters at the SCG.

Moga too strong in the corner

With the game in the balance, the centre muscled his way over the line to score a crucial try heading into halftime.

Returning from a fourth ACL injury, the try meant little in the grand scheme of the game but will do wonders for Moga’s confidence.
