Once again tireless One New Zealand Warriors captain Tohu Harris has earned a spot in the NRL’s VB Hard Earned Team of the Week.
The outstanding Harris produced a second consecutive 80-minute effort in earning 98 points in his team’s vital 24-12 win over Canterbury Bankstown.
Only Brisbane prop Payne Haas (104) – in a beaten side – and Penrith second rower Scott Sorensen (103) topped Harris’ 98 points.
He finished with 162 metres from 20 runs (equal with teammate Addin Fonua-Blake for most metres by a forward from either side), had two tackle breaks and again finished with 48 tackles, a tally matched only by Bulldogs back rower Harrison Edwards. Not to mention the influence he had in his role as first receiver on attack.
A week earlier against Penrith he had a game-high 48 tackles, 155 metres from 21 runs – the best numbers for any forward on the field – with 50 post contact metres (equal best for a forward).
That’s consistency personified.
