NRL Social: Fan love and Dragons on top
With round nine now behind us, let's look back at some of the best moments.
Moylan makes a night of it
It was a night to remember for one young Sharks fan who received a special gift from Matt Moylan after Cronulla's win on Saturday night. The young fan failed to contain his emotions as Moylan autographed his boots. It reminded us just how great rugby league can be.
If playing out of his mind for the Warriors wasn't enough to top off a great weekend, Shaun Johnson backed it up proposing to his long-term girlfriend, Silver Ferns defender Kayla Cullen. The Kiwi sports couple announced their engagement on social media and celebrated with friends and family. Congrats SJ!
Warriors player Karl Lawton couldn't have asked for a better start with his new club. The last time the utility played at Mt Smart Stadium, he suffered a horrific injury, only this time he scored two tries help lift the Auckland-based team to second on the NRL ladder. Lawton later said "This is my home now", and judging by the fan reaction, he's a welcome addition.
Back at it!
Jillaroos fullback Sammy Bremner is back playing the game she loves, posting this photo to her Twitter account earlier Monday morning. We love seeing you back doing what you love!
Ring the bell
The Dragons propelled themselves higher on the NRL ladder, much to the delight of Gareth Widdop and Tariq Sims.
"Another awesome crowd yesterday at Kogarah! We love playing in front of you guys!" Sims posted to Instagram.
The great outdoors
Newcastle Knights young gun Kalyn Ponga enjoyed his never-ending sun.
And Jared Waerea-Hargreaves got in some quality time with the family before the Roosters took on Manly Sunday afternoon.
Jordan Kahu looks to still be in positive spirits after suffering a slight setback thanks to finding some of the hardware (metal) used to fix his broken jaw.
"Minor setback on Monday. But it ain't going to stop me! Let's go brothers," he wrote on Instagram.
