Aaron Gray scored four tries for City in his representative debut on Sunday, helping his side to a 44-30 victory over Country in Tamworth.
Gray started the match in the centres, but an injury to City winger, David Nofoaluma, saw Gray shift back out to his regular position with dazzling results.
Despite conceding first points, two tries on either side of half-time to the Mascot Jets product saw the City-slickers take full control of the match – Gray showing a combination of finishing and aerial ability, speed and strength in the process.
City Coach, Brad Fittler, was pleased with the young Rabbitohs’ performance.
“He was good – he made a few of them (opportunities) too didn’t he,” quipped Fittler to City Captain, Chris Lawrence.
“We had a heap of young blokes on the edge – I don’t think any of the backs had played City Country before.
“Their little combos in and around chasing kicks and doing all that was awesome – they got into it.”
Lawrence meanwhile gave a nod to Aaron’s strength with the ball.
“He’s hard to contain one-on-one,” Lawrence added.
