NRL Social: The Anzac Round
An Anzac Day to remember
Anzac Round made for some special football, particularly for Tevita Pangai jnr who not only won the Anzac Medal for man of the match but who also got to play against his childhood hero, Greg Inglis.
"Took me 2 years too play a childhood hero Greg Inglis, congrats on your 250th," Pangai Jnr wrote on Instagram where he posed with his medal for a memorable photo.
Broncos teammate Sam Thaiday also wished his fellow Queenslander the best.
Speedy recovery, Sauce!
After suffering a terrible facial injury, NRL fan favourite Josh Mansour went under the knife. The Test winger took to Twitter on Sunday night to thank his family, friends and fans for all their support. On behalf of everyone at NRL.com we wish Josh a fast and safe recovery.
It may have taken Clint Gutherson five years to get there, but Sunday marked 50 NRL appearances for the Parramatta Eel.
"Huge honour to play my 50th NRL game tonight, taken a while but got here in the end. Love this game," the fullback said.
Penrith Panther Tyrone Peachy joined the 100 club in their defeat over the Canterbury Bulldogs.
Wheels Up Cronulla
Thanks to his handy boot securing the Sharks their win, it was #upupcronulla literally as Chad Townsend and the squad headed back to Sydney.
Being out with injury hasn't wiped the smile off Jordan Kahu's face. He posed with his beautiful family saying "No, I'm not lucky — I'm blessed."
Home sweet home
And no need to wonder if Knights gun fullback Kayln Ponga is enjoying his time in Newcastle.
Dragons take the Anzac honours
Last week's traditional Anzac Day match between the Dragons and the Roosters failed to disappoint. Tyson Frizell took home the Man of the Match honours saying "Thanks to everyone who attended yesterday's game and showed their support for the men and women who served and continue to serve our country."
Yeah the boys!
And Latrell Mitchell kept a positive outlook after his sides loss to the Dragons.
"Best thing about Footy, there's always next week!"
