Rugby League's greatest bat-back try assists

Newcastle fullback Jake Mamo’s spectacular try assist in the Knights’ loss to Cronulla had every one talking in the wash-up to Round 15, but it certainly wasn’t the first of its kind.

The team at Monday Night With Matty Johns put together this stellar compilation of players defying the dead-ball and touch in-goal lines to deliver stunning tries.

Stretching back to Jamie Lyon’s remarkable bat back for Manly teammate Michael Robertson to score, the clip contains brilliant efforts by Curtis Rona, Mahe Fonua and Daniel Vidot, the famous Greg Inglis-Mark Gasnier combo in the 2008 Centenary Test, and the new standard-bearer, Kevin Naiqama’s blink-and-you’ll-miss-it flick pass for James Tedesco to score earlier this season.
