Canterbury prop James Graham has emerged as one of the key figures of the 2014 finals, playing a pivotal role as the Bulldogs bounced perennial powerhouses Melbourne and Manly out in consecutive weeks.
The Englishman was named man-of-the-match against the Storm, producing 14 runs for 143 metres, 35 tackles and a memorable try-saving tackle. He was at it again in the golden point thriller against the Sea Eagles, making 36 tackles (no misses) and 19 runs for 142 metres.
Graham is the ultimate competitor and wears his heart on his sleeve, expecting the best out of himself and his teammates – as this clip of the front-rower blowing up after a Bulldogs mistake shows.
You don’t need advanced lip-reading skills to figure out what he’s bellowing out at his comrades.
Unquestionably one of the NRL’s most valuable players, Graham is now just 80 minutes away from having the opportunity to atone for his infamous ear-bite on Billy Slater in the 2012 Grand Final.
