Top Tryscorer: Who's in the hunt as we hit the run home

There's nothing better than nabbing a four pointer.

For some, it's a feat that only becomes achievable in the rarest of occasions (ask anybody who's been made to perform the dreaded nudie run).

However, some players do it for fun.

With the 2021 season turning onto the home stretch, there are a number of players in red and blue who'll be vying for the coveted title of the Club's top try scorer in the final rounds of the competition.

All of them have scored some incredible four pointers this year, many of them crucial to keeping the nib Newcastle Knights in the hunt for a spot in the NRL's top eight.

With Enari Tuala (2020) and Kalyn Ponga (2019) the two previous winners, here's the players in contention with just a month worth of football remaining in the season.

Kalyn Ponga - 7

It may come as a surprise to some that Ponga is again in the box seat to take out the try-scoring title, given how little football he's played this year.

Ponga has played just 10 out of a possible of 20 games this year, however the Maroons No.1 has been as dangerous as ever this year.

The 23-year-old has scored some truly memorable four pointers throughout the season, including a match-winning double against Cronulla in Round 6 and a length of the field special in his return game against the Gold Coast.

Now back to full fitness with four massive games standing between the Knights and finals footy, you can bet that Ponga will up the ante between now and the rest of the season.

That spells trouble for the chasing pack, with Ponga bound to find the stripe again before the end of the year.

Cometh the hour, cometh Kalyn Ponga

Enari Tuala - 6

Another familiar face up near the top of the list.

The 2020 champion had a slow start to this season, going through the first 10 games without being able to find the line.

How things have changed.

Four pointers against the Cowboys and Eels got his season kick started, with the reliable outside back going on to score a memorable hat trick in the crucial 34-24 win over Canberra a few weeks ago.

Another try against Brisbane last week now has Tuala breathing down Ponga's neck in a bid to defend his title as the Club's ultimate try-scorer.

Now playing on the end of a backline featuring the likes of Pearce, Ponga and Bradman Best on his inside, Tuala looks certain to again challenge for the try scoring gong.

A flying Tuala finds the line

Starford To'a - 5

A smokey in the race, To'a has proved to be a terrific finisher when called on by Head Coach Adam O'Brien.

To'a's strike rate is good, scoring once every 2 games when he has featured this year.

Should he be called upon again, To'a has more than proven he could come from the clouds and take this out.

Knights make the most of the extra man

Mitch Barnett - 4

Now, here's a name you didn't expect to find on this list.

Alas, Barnett is well and truly within striking distance as we enter the final month of the competition.

'Barney' found plenty of points in the opening rounds of the season, however the tries dried up until last week's win over Brisbane.

Now with four to his name, Barnett could be the ultimate bolter to claim the top prize.
