CrownBet High Performance Stat of the Week
In this week's 'CrownBet High Performance Stat of the Week', we focus on the distance covered by the Steeden in the lead up to Ben Barba's 14th try of the season.
On tackle three and just six metres out from their own try line, James Maloney had noticed how compressed the Dragons defence was, and called for the ball.
Receiving the long ball from Chad Townsend, Maloney then handed off to Wade Graham, who then had an unmarked Sosaia Feki on his outside.
Drawing the Dragons centre, Graham passed to Feki sending him on a 50 metre run downfield.
With Barba in support and only the fullback to beat, Feki drew and passed to give Barba yet another four pointer.
Distance covered by the ball in that play: 145 meters. Distance covered by Ben Barba: 117m.
Great vision from James Maloney and support play from Ben Barba!
