The first Wind-back Wednesday of 2018 is reliving some of the greatest length-of-the-field tries the premiership has seen. Players running 95 metres plus only need apply.

Nathan Gardner (2010)

The highlight of the whippet’s 43-game career was undoubtedly this effort during his 2010 rookie campaign. Perhaps best remembered since for almost having his gruts ripped off by Jamal Idris.

Ben Barba (2012)

Barba scored a host of magic tries during his 2012 Dally M-winning campaign, but none more impressive than this long-ranger against the Eels.

Ty Williams (2005)

One of the great individual tries in one of the finest matches of the modern era, this was the second touchdown of Williams’ match-winning hat-trick for the Cowboys at Brookvale Oval.

Brett Morris (2011)

‘B-Moz’ came up with a sizzling length-of-the-field try in Wollongong that arguably even his twin brother and father couldn’t match.

Semi Radradra (2014)

Semi-mania gripped the NRL in 2014 – and it’s not hard to see why when he produced solo tries like this barnstormer.

Jarryd Hayne (2011)

Hayne eats 90-metre tries for breakfast, but this goal-line to goal-line effort stands out in his incomparable highlights reel.

Michael Jennings (2009)

Possibly the longest individual try in NRL history, Jennings took the ball from the back of his own in-goal, all the way to the other end.

Eric Grothe (1985)

No one could match ‘The Guru’s’ power and pace in the 1980s, least of all hapless Easts, who were on the receiving end of a few long-range specials from Grothe.
