Cowboys Teen Beats Seven Panthers Players To Score Try Of The Year Contender
It is, without doubt, a try of the year contender.
Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow went past seven opposition players to score an emphatic try for the North Queensland Cowboys in Sunday night's NRL clash against the Penrith Panthers.
With the Panthers leading 4-0 just before half-time, 18-year-old fullback Tabuai-Fidow sprung into action.
Receiving the ball in the middle of the pitch on the third down, the teenage sensation well and truly turned on the after burners and left several rivals for dead.
Side-stepping and fending off the oncoming defenders, it looked like Tabuai-Fidow was about to hit the turf when he was met by Penrith fullback Dylan Edwards.
Keeping his balance beautifully, the high-flying fullback stayed on his feat and raced in to score the try to equal the scoring.

Looking into the camera in amazement of what he'd just done, Tabuai-Fidow was instantly mobbed by his Cowboys teammates as the passionate Penrith crowd went silent.
NRL legend and Nine's commentator Andrew Johns couldn't contain himself either.
"Look at this young fella move," he said.
"Look at that for balance! How did he stay on his feet and keep his pace?"
North Queensland, who are 12th on the NRL ladder and without starting fullback Valentine Holmes, went on to lose the game 22-10.
But with Holmes sidelined indefinitely with an ongoing ankle injury, it appears the Cowboys have the fullback position more than covered - that's if Tabuai-Fidow's moment of magic is anything to go by.
