The Our League Try of the Week is back for 2020 and we have six fantastic tries from the opening weekend's of the Betfred Super League and Betfred Championship for you to choose from.
Remember, to cast your vote, head over to 'Polls' in the Our League app. But, first, here are this week's contenders:
Ben Murdoch-Masila - Warrington Wolves
Ben Murdoch-Masila scored the first try of the 2020 Betfred Super League season and certainly made a statement in doing so by powering over Wigan Warriors new signing George Burgess.
The second-rower knocked Burgess to the ground before carrying over three more Warriors defenders to get Warrington off the mark on Thursday evening.
Kevin Naiqama – St Helens
St Helens were in scintillating form against Salford Red Devils in a repeat of the 2019 Betfred Super League Grand Final and centre Kevin Naiqama notched a double on an enjoyable evening for new Head Coach Kristian Woolfe.
Youngster Jack Welsby began the season in fine form setting up one of Naiqama’s tries with a beautifully weighted pass.
Adam Higson – Leigh Centurions
This weekend’s Betfred Championship offering for the Our League Try of the Week comes from Leigh Centurions winger Adam Higson.
The Centurions were all set for victory, but Higson rounded off the opening Championship game off the season off in style as he collected a cross-field kick from Dewsbury before racing over 90 metres to score, outpacing Rams half-back Paul Sykes in the process.
Greg Eden – Castleford Tigers
In similar fashion to Higson, Castleford Tigers’ Greg Eden scored a breakaway try which turned the tide for Daryl Powell’s side in their opening game of the Betfred Super League season against Toronto Wolfpack.
Eden scooped up a loose Wolfpack pass and went 90 metres to open the scoring for Castleford who went on to win.
Hakim Miloudi – Toronto Wolfpack
Despite falling to defeat in their first-ever Betfred Super League fixture, Toronto Wolfpack put forward a strong showing at the Emerald Headingley Stadium and one standout performer was Hakim Miloudi.
The centre managed to pull off a sensational interception from a Castleford attack and went over the try-line from inside his own half finishing in style with a front-roll finish.
Ratu Naulago – Hull FC
We became accustomed to fabulous tries from Hull FC’s Fijian flyer Ratu Naulago throughout 2019 and he finished off an off-the-cuff move from FC this past weekend to begin 2020.
A number off offloads saw Lee Radford’s side carve open the Leeds Rhinos defence and Naulogo finished in the corner for his first of two tries from Round One of the Betfred Super League.
