Around the Traps: Field goal guru ‘Grunter’ Andrews to receive Rats’ life membership

Bu Mark Cashman

Now I know there is still plenty of water to flow under the Shute Shield bridge between now and grand final day but I’m going early with try of the year.

It has to go with that sensational effort from Northern Suburbs scrumhalf Nick Duffy last weekend at North Sydney Oval when he got more air in the corner than Michael Jordan at his absolute best.

Duffy’s “hang time” had to be seen to be believed and the try came at a critical time in the match against Sydney Uni.

Others did play a role in this cracker with winger Ratu Tagive managing to get on the outside of the Uni defence before handing it over to Brodie Leber who made ground and backhanded it in field for Duffy to do his stuff.

I can faithfully report that Around The Traps did score in that corner once during his playing career but it was far less spectacular - and it took 18 years for it to happen.
