Talking Points | Round 10
All the key Tricolours talking points to come from our Indigenous Round battle with the New Zealand Warriors in Round 10.
INDIGENOUS ROUND A HIT
The Indigenous Round in 2018 was a hit both on and off the field.
It's a truly great initiative from the NRL and that good work was on full display before and throughout the match.
The ceremony ahead of kick off was truly mesmerising and touching, with the gift exchange that involved Latrell Mitchell and Isaac Luke a truly great moment.
On top of that, both Clubs stood out more than usual on the field with impressive Indigenous jerseys.
ATTACK MAKES A COMEBACK
Though the points haven't come east over the past few weeks, five tries to the Tricolours in Round 10 suggests that the attack is on the way back.
Maybe it's not at 100% just yet, but Saturday was certainly an improvement.
To top it all off, the for and against improves greatly as our defensive effort saw the Warriors go scoreless for 80 minutes.
RELISH THE AWAY TRIPS
Luke Keary said early in the week that taking trips away helps the team spend more time together and gel as teammates.
If last night was a result of that, then bring on the Interstate trips.
Mount Smart Stadium is a tough place to win for any team in the NRL, so to do so in clinical fashion makes it all the more enjoyable.
FERGUSON CONTINUES WITH THE GOODS
Winger Blake Ferguson has been in top form this season and he continued his run of impressive performances in Round 10.
He was fantastic against the Warriors and his efforts were on display in all facets of the game.
It started with a try-saving tackle, continued with a BARGING four pointer and was topped off with a number off impressive carries coming out of his own end.
TEDDY MAKES MOST OF THE MILESTONE
100 NRL games is a special milestone for rugby league players and James Tedesco is sure to remember his.
Not only did the Roosters put on a show in Round 10, but Tedesco was able to bag a four-pointer of his own.
It's sure to be a match he'll remember long after he hangs up the boots.
