NRL star breaks club’s all-time record

There hasn’t been a whole lot for the Tigers faithful to celebrate in 2021 but reliable finisher David Nofoaluma gave fans of the joint venture reason to smile on Sunday.

With his first-half four-pointer, Nofoaluma surpassed Chris Lawrence and Benji Marshall to become the side’s all-time top tryscorer.

A beautiful ball from Adam Doueihi — the Tigers’ shining light in a dark season — sent Nofoaluma over for his 85th try in orange, black and white.

“What a tryscorer he is for the Wests Tigers,” 2016 Premiership-winner Michael Ennis said in commentary.

“Nofoaluma, he’s over for another try.”

A superb offload from Payne Haas to his Origin rival Thomas Flegler put the Broncos eight points clear of the Tigers in the shadow of halftime at Suncorp Stadium.

While the Broncos are all but out of finals contention, a win would put the Tigers two points out of the top eight.

Before round 18 commenced, just two wins separated 8th and 14th positions, with each team in that bracket needing to make the most of the time in South East Queensland if they’re to play September footy.

Nofoaluma’s in-form buddy Luciano Leilua was the Tigers’ other tryscorer in the first 40, while Corey Oates and Jordan Riki joined Flegler on the score sheet for the Broncos.
