NRL Social: That try celebration explained
Every week, we recap the best posts going around the NRL social scene; this week there was one thing on everyone's mind - what's going on with that try celebration?
DCE survives scare OFF the field.
Daly Cherry Evans – brave on the field, not so much off it! The Manly captain was minding his own business when he scared the life out of him!
"It was Matt Wright who was in the bin. Marty and Api set me up, haha," DCE told NRL.com
"Believe it or not I am still alive after nearly suffering a heart attack after this scare from the lads. Well played fellas. And....No, I didn't have any traces of poo in my jocks after it, DCE wrote on Instagram.
Ross Dog rocks a new look
Newcastle winger Nathan Ross looked a little different when he ran out on the field for the Knights Friday night. He lopped off the locks in support of cancer for the Worlds Greatest Shave and boy, did his teammates look to enjoy it!
He recently said via the Leukaemia Foundation website, "I truly believe there is a cure for cancer out there and together we can find it. A donation of any amount will greatly help and potentially save a life."
Jackson Hastings gave back to the fans the other day, telling Manly fans he was giving away free tickets! Anyone interested in watching Knights V Manly tonight, I've left 4 tickets here at gate O at the stadium! Goodluck to whoever grabs them!
A great twitter follow for any Manly fan!
A Knight to remember in Newcastle
After Mitchell Pearce's stunning season debut against the Knights, he posted this photo – the image captures the moment right after Pearce slotted golden point to win the game 19-18 against Manly.
Pearce was stoked with the team's effort and was excited to share his thoughts with the fans:
"The Knights fans got us home for round one. The crowd was amazing. Great to get this feeling in round one with our new teammates. Pleasure running out in such a proud jersey and town with these legends. Can't wait for round 2."
The Titans win over the Raiders was not only big for the Gold Coast, but it was a massive win for Bryce Cartwright who ran out for the first time having left the Penrith Panthers a month ago.
And speaking of debutants, there were some special jersey presentations from some of the best to ever do it.
And across the ditch, Adam Blair cited his jersey presentation as a special moment in his career. 'Such a special moment not only for me but my family to be a part of giving my debut warriors jersey to me. I always wanted to play for the NZ when I started playing, now I get opportunity to represent this club. All the hard works been done now time to bring it on'.
That try celebration explained
If you were locked into the weekend's matches, you'll know doubt be wondering what the new try celebrations doing the rounds was about.
Debuted by Josh Dugan, the move is referring to a video game called "Fortnite" and he and a few players decided to have some fun with it.
Blake Ferguson gave it a run after his four-pointer
And the Warriors boys doubled it up after their win over the Bunnies in Perth.
And if you were out at Penrith on Sunday, you would have no doubt seen the new individual player celebrations from the Panthers.
Nathan Cleary slotted 12 points, which meant we saw this GIF in our timelines a lot!
Cleary told NRL.com after the game the reasoning behind his "flick of the wrist" move.
"Obviously, I'm a big NBA fan, that's probably a side thing. I wish I was an NBA player, so that was a bit of me coming out in that, but yeah, all a bit of fun."
